Volume 3 About BodyTalk While most people would certainly put healthcare in the category of “giving” professions, BodyTalk practitioners are more likely to talk about what they receive. Often, many will tell you, the greatest reward comes when they find they’ve provided help to someone who had given up hope of ever finding it. BodyTalk is a revolutionary healthcare system that utilizes state-of-the-art energy medicine to optimize the body’s internal communications. This, in turn, helps the body to operate more efficiently and effectively respond to injury and illness. A safe, non-invasive form of care that relies on the body’s own healing capabilities, BodyTalk is an amazing mix of the old and the new, with proven results and worldwide growth. BodyTalk practitioners work with patients around the globe, stopping occasionally in their tasks to share case studies and experiences through their trade association, the International BodyTalk Association (IBA). The stories they relate are fascinating, and the satisfaction they have received is evident, as they use BodyTalk’s unique attributes to bring about exceptional results. There are many more accounts of BodyTalk in action, and the number grows every day. That’s because the BodyTalk community continues to expand and flourish. The reasons are seen in the results, and the results speak for themselves. Consider: In an impoverished Mexican village, U.S. volunteers use BodyTalk to help children with special needs. Since BodyTalk is based on biofeedback, a subtle muscle testing, it represents an instant “common language” that can be used to overcome the lack of individual medical histories and the inability of many patients to communicate vocally. Using BodyTalk’s simple and gentle therapy, these volunteers have seen these children become more alert and interactive, gain mobility skills, experience reductions in pain and exhibit happiness and affection. A 60-year-old woman was diagnosed from birth as having "cerebral palsy of the left arm," as well as suffering from multiple food and environmental allergies, poor stamina, depression, generalized muscle pain, insomnia and nervousness. Unfortunately, her palsy made muscle-testing difficult. Fortunately, BodyTalk can be administered through a surrogate. Three days after treatment, the patient called the practitioner to say that her depression had lifted, she was mentally clear and joyful, she was sleeping short stretches and some of her allergies were receding. With continued treatments, she reported feeling as though her life had completely turned around. Want to learn more?
