What is Body Talk

BodyTalk is a state-of-the-art approach to integrative mind/body medicine where Science and the Art of Living Life consciously meet.

I am image

Every choice and every experience has contributed to your current state of health. Each scar, laugh line and injury has a unique story and a history.

WholeHealthcare takes into consideration your whole-story. Your life-style, genetics and history area all drawn upon to establish a personalized approach that brings about lasting changes.

The BodyTalk System “facilitates” the body’s natural communication, synchronization and balancing processes which may have been interrupted through disease, injury, trauma and/or environmental factors. By re-establishing the lines of communication between various physical and energetic parts of the body using simple, non-invasive techniques – the body is then capable of healing itself rapidly and effectively.

The BodyTalk philosophy is that every person has a unique balance that should be addressed.  The ideal goal is to find the best, most dynamic point of balance within our bodymind complex, such that we are easily able to respond to the issues life throws at us with ease and grace.

i am the lungs

I am an important organ because I allow for the exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide in the blood, so your vitality is dependent on me. I am also responsible for distributing Qi around the bodyand so when I am functioning properly, I give sharpness to movements and allow for good reaction times. I also play an important role in releasing attachments to the past as we release each breath. So when you hold on to things in your life, your breathing becomes shallow and your feel suffocated and unable to grow.

I am the wrist

I am a complex character because I have such close ties to the hand, which is one of the most expressive parts of the body. I have to be very flexible and precise which requires a lot of intelligence, so it is little wonder that the stomach controls me. The stomach represents the conscious mind and so when you start thinking too much and especially when your thinking becomes rigid and narrow-minded, then I become rigid.  If you can’t stomach your life and what is happening around you then you will start having indigestion and I will ache and degenerate.

I am the large intestine

You may think that my only role is to eliminate waste and as a result of the digestion of food. I do much more than that. I eliminate impure thoughts and emotions as a result of our life experience.  To do this I am able to generate grief to help you let go and move on. The desire to be in control of every situation leads to the inability to surrender yesterday’s emotions – which you call constipation. When I am functioning properly I allow for the ability to release the past and cleanly enter each day with an open mind.


BodyTalk can address issues on all levels: physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, as well as play a key role in health maintenance and prevention.

We all experience stress, be it in mind, body or spirit. In fact, it’s the number one cause of disease in the world because it causes the natural communication lines in the body to break down. When the body forgets how to communicate with itself, injury and illness occur.

A problem facing the body today is in the way our lifestyles interfere with the natural processes of the body. Most people in society are routinely exposed to:

  • Physical stresses including physical injuries
  • Emotional traumas
  • Chemical substances contained in food , water, and air.
  • Exposure to artificial energy fields that exist within our society
  • Electronic devices that we use on a daily basis.

These factors compromise the communication networks or energy circuits of the body. It is critical that these systems be perfectly balanced for the body to effectively coordinate the billions of synchronized activities that are necessary to maintain optimum health. The body only fails in its job because its communication systems have been compromised through the external stresses of life.

The BodyTalk System “facilitates” the body’s natural communication, synchronization and balancing processes which may have been interrupted through disease, injury, trauma and/or environmental factors. By re-establishing good communication between the various parts of the body, they once again are able to “talk” to each other. The body is then capable of healing itself rapidly and effectively.

The BodyTalk philosophy is that every person has a unique balance that should be addressed.  The ideal goal is to find the best, most dynamic point of balance within our bodymind complex, such that we are easily able to respond to the issues life throws at us with ease and grace.

Like an onion, if the concern is at the core, there are layers that have been placed around it to protect and compensate. BodyTalk can help to identify and peel those layers getting to the core issues over time.

While BodyTalk does not diagnose or treat specific ailments,  clinical experience has shown that once their overall systems are balanced through a BodyTalk Session, clients have exhibited significant imporvement in  chronic and acute pain, sports performance,injuries, learning disorders (ADD, ADHD, etc.), allergies, infections and much more.

Sports Performance Weight Loss Fertility
Depression Stress Allergies
Sleep Fear/Phobias Viruses
Back/Body Pain Digestive Disorders Infection
ADHD Reproductive Disorders Injuries
Migraines Organ Dysfunction Chronic Fatigue
Headaches Endocrine Dysfunction Arthritis
Sports Injury Emotional Disorders Dyslexia

*These are just a few symptoms that BodyTalk can help improve


Current areas addressed by the BodyTalk system are:

  • Specific balancing of the twelve major body organs, eight endocrine systems, and other non-specific body parts.
  • Balancing the 36 surface energy points that often have an impact upon a person’s energy level, mood, overall structural integrity, muscle tension, and digestive system. These surface energy imbalances are also a cause of pain in specific parts of the body.
  • BodyTalk can specifically activate an immune response to eliminate chronic and acute viruses, bacteria, parasites, food intolerances, environmental allergies, and accumulated toxins.
  • Musculo-skeletal treatment can improve general posture and coordination, as well as address acute or chronic muscular disorders, back problems, and joint disorders such as arthritis.
  • BodyTalk can help in clearing past and present emotional blockages including specific phobias.
  • Other areas where BodyTalk has proved helpful include overall breathing patterns, left-right brain co-ordination, energy blockages associated with birthplace, energy imbalances within the brain cortices, general and localized hydration, and health problems associated with internal and external scarring.



BodyTalk is a state-of-the-art approach to integrative mind/body medicine by combining Western medicine’s scientifically supported research in fields such as neuroscience, epigenetics, and psychoneuroimmunology along with a large number of highly recognized ancient and modern healing methods and principles of knowledge, such as Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture, yoga and meditation philosophies, Chiropractic, consciousness studies and Energy Psychology.

Managing Information

The BodyTalk System also uses concepts from the fields of Information Science and Information Management, Dynamic Systems Theory and advanced process control and optimization principles found in the engineering fields, as well as advanced topics in mathematics and quantum physics.

Even though these fields may not seem to have an obvious connection to the healing processes of the bodymind, they are an integral part of how the BodyTalk Practitioner is able to quickly and easily gather relevant information from their client’s body.

  • BodyTalk’s major assets are it’s simplicity, safety and the speed of it’s results.

With BodyTalk, the practitioner does not need to diagnose the problem with the patient. Through muscle testing the clients’ bodymind informs the practitioner which energy systems need to be rebalanced and in which particular order. This is a key aspect of the BodyTalk system and one which we feel is probably the main reason why the system works so well.

Because the BodyTalk System allows the body’s own healing abilities to effect change, client’s see long-lasting, ongoing improvements in health rather than symptomatic relief.

  • It is non-invasive, objective in application and can be used on its own or can complement other forms of healthcare, alternative or conventional.
  • BodyTalk is Cumulative

Because your body stores the changes made by the brain during the tapping process, this means that every formula or circuit that is corrected builds on the one before. Your body actually remembers the BodyTalk sessions it receives and your healing process will continue with each additional session you have.

YES. This is completely safe, non-invasive energy medicine that works by bringing the brain’s awareness to different parts of the body.

Clinical studies of BodyTalk has shown that the system is totally safe and gently helps to re-establish a better balance within, and between, all of the many systems in the body.

People commonly feel relaxed and peaceful and may experience shifts such as:

  • a desire to drink water to enhance hydration of the body.
  • Grounded yet hightly energized.
  • a healthy immune response to a microbial infection
  • Some clients feel tired temporarily, followed by a calm energy; this can be because the mind/body is unwrapping the communication blocks and processing.

The BodyTalk system has been practiced in many parts of the world for several years. There are hundreds of BodyTalk practitioners using the system on a regular basis, many of them medical doctors, chiropractors, acupuncturists, massage therapists and other licensed professionals. The reason the system is so safe is that a BodyTalk session only involves rebalancing energy systems throughout the body, using ancient Hatha yoga procedure involving only holding points, light tapping and breathing.

BodyTalk complements all other modalities, so it doesn’t detract or contraindicate any other treatments you may be currently taking from other practitioners.

No Two Session Are Alike!

  • Unique to each individual. Naturally, most clients arrive for a session with a health concern, and this problem is addressed. However, the BodyTalk Practitioner does not make a diagnosis for the purpose of establishing a specific session protocol. BodyTalk recognizes that although two people may appear to show the exact same symptoms, the communication links needed to balance their conditions may be entirely different. No two sessions are alike!
  • BodyTalk bridges the gap between Eastern and Western Medicine. It encompasses:
    • Western Medical Expertise
    • Energy Dynamics of Acupuncture
    • Osteopathic and Chiropractic Philosophy
    • The clinical findings of Applied Kinesiology
    • The Insights of Modern Physics and Mathematics

    *Can be Used as a Stand Alone System or Seamlessly Integrated into any Healthcare System

A New Perspective

One of the major areas addressed by The BodyTalk System is the realm of personal and spiritual growth. Balancing the body biochemically, physiologically, and emotionally, while addressing specific beliefs and attitudes, the BodyTalk System is a very powerful tool in the field of personal development.

Practitioners and clients alike can experience changes in the way they relate to others, as well as the relationships they have with friends and family. Many individuals find new jobs or improvements within the work they are currently doing and also find an increase in the overall wellness and real happiness they experience on a daily basis. The personal development experienced through BodyTalk can affect an individual on all levels, in all ways.

World-Wide Reach

Currently there are nearly 2000 BodyTalk Practitioners world-wide and 80 instructors teaching BodyTalk in 35 countries with translations in 8 languages. Currently these include: English, German, Italian, Swedish, Spanish, Portuguese, Japanese, and Hebrew. To offer support for BodyTalk Practitioners globally, additional offices are operating in Germany and Australia, while other regions such as Brazil and South Africa are in line for the near future.
