Here we provide a Trusted tip on BODY TALK
The BodyTalk System simply put, is a modality that works with your body’s natural ability to heal itself.
For example, when one experiences an injury such as breaking a bone, they do not have to consciously direct every cell that goes to the site to heal it. The cells know what their job is, how and when to do it, so we don’t have to oversee anything! This is because each of our cells has a certain amount of consciousness or awareness, which allows them to respond to their environment and adapt accordingly. In a perfect world, our bodies would be in a constant state of seamless adaptation (not balance, because then we would never evolve as a person or a civilization) being able to shift easily and effortlessly through any life situation.
Presently however, we do not live in a perfect world, and our body, mind, and emotions are bombarded with all sorts of stressors. As we have begun to become aware of in recent years, Stress is the number one cause of most disease and dysfunction. Stress is what causes our cells to lose their ability to easily adapt to a situation (whether it be a physical injury to the tissues, emotional trauma, or mental overloads from work) due in part to a lack of communication between all the parts and systems of the body (because everything runs more smoothly when everyone is on the same page right?). And partly to poor distribution of the body’s resources because they are all being taken up to feed our stress reaction.
As we are not just a bunch of autonomous parts (our arms and legs are different from our spine and head, but not apart from them) , we can safely say that everything in the body is connected. Not only connected, but actually interdependent upon one another. Therefore we cannot affect one aspect (mental) of the body/mind without having ramifications through all the other aspects (physical and emotional). Just like how on a physical level, a person can sprain their ankle years before, and the biomechanical compensation that takes place can eventually cause neck pain. So in order to treat the neck pain, the body worker must address the causative factor, which is the poorly healed soft tissues of the ankle. This is where The BodyTalk System shines compared to many other modalities. With it, Certified BodyTalk Practitioners (CBP) are able to tap into that innate awareness of the body and its systems, to address the causative factors of their client’s concerns with extremely non-invasive techniques.
Working by Priority is another method that makes The BodyTalk System a successful tool in management of stress and pain. A great example of working by Priority: A client goes to their Naturopath because they’ve been feeling under the weather and after initial examination, the Doctor deems that they have a toxic liver. Doctor tells client in order to feel better, they must go home and do a liver cleanse to relieve it of all the toxins. Client does so, with no great success. Goes back to Doctor for further testing, and they discover the client has quite the obstruction in their colon. Therefore the Priority should have been to address the clogged colon, in order for the toxins in the liver to have somewhere to be released, where they can be eliminated from the body. With The BodyTalk System, we are able to work with the body and its systems in the proper sequence that is so important in the healing process. Unlike other modalities that treat the symptom (ie. the effect - pain/discomfort/tension), we address the stressors (on each level - mental, emotional and physical) that caused the whole chain of events to create the symptoms.
During a BodyTalk Session, the client is simply relaxing on the table while the CBP uses the client’s arm for the biofeedback (very subtle muscle testing), to determine which parts/systems of the body are a priority to have their communication lines re-established. The increased communication throughout the body’s parts and systems, enhances the cells’ abilities of adaptation through the awareness we talked about earlier. When all the client’s priorities have been identified, the CBP works on a quantum level (where that innate awareness or consciousness resides) with the specific frequencies or electromagnetic fields of each priority. Now, the easiest way to change an electromagnetic field (EMF), is to introduce another magnetic frequency, and/or a wave of vibration through it. This collapses the present EMF, then re-forming themselves while adapting to the new environment (ie. Where all the body parts and systems are communicating properly again, and working towards the same goal - being healthy and functioning at optimal levels). The CBP affects those frequencies without any outside tools, through the use of their hands in specific placements over the client’s body (our hands are actually polarized so they have their own magnetic charge, thus introducing the outside magnetic force). And gently tapping (waves of vibration) over the brain and heart center to re-form their EMFs to shift the client’s body/mind out of the stress reaction state. Now that their body isn’t distracted by all those high priority stressors, it can use its resources more efficiently to heal its ailments.
