What is BodyTalk?

 

BodyTalk is an integrative system that uses a safe, structured, protocol to develop and activate an individualized treatment plan for each patient. This protocol is novel in its ability to leverage a state-of-the-art scientific understanding of human molecular and cellular biology together with Eastern medical perspectives and the contribution of traumatic memories, belief systems, environmental stressors, and interpersonal dynamics to disease.

BodyTalk is a leading system in transformation of medicine into the quantum era, using a quantum and dynamic systems understanding of the interconnected nature of the physical, energetic, and consciousness aspects of the body.

The BodyTalk system was developed by Dr. John Veltheim, an acupuncturist and chiropractor with a broad background in alternative medicine in the early 1990’s. Today, it is a taught through a structured curriculum in over 40 countries worldwide. There is a rigorous certification process to become a practitioner, advanced practitioner, or instructor, with oversight and certification by the International BodyTalk Association.

BodyTalk is a comprehensive healthcare system based on a dynamic systems’ model that emphasizes the contribution of all aspects of the body and mind to the whole. The body is viewed not as a system of independently functioning parts but as multiple systems that interact with one another and are dependent on each other for function.

A key distinction of the focus of treatment in the BodyTalk system is a thorough and holistic investigation of the numerous mechanisms and etiology of disease. The orientation is not to manage or mitigate symptoms, but to uncover the myriad of different potential causative factors: genetic, epigenetic, toxicity, circulatory, hormonal, neurological, structural, microbial, the body’s response to environment stressors (jobs, relationships, families, money), emotionally traumatic memories, limiting belief systems and thought patterns, patterns of energy flow through the meridian system of Chinese medicine, among other factors.

The process of highlighting potential causative factors through use of the BodyTalk protocol, is not to form a diagnosis, or for the purpose of confirmatory validation in laboratory tests, but has the impact of activating healing in the patient. This is in contrast to the current paradigm of healthcare from both the Western and CAM perspective, where the focus is on diagnosis and then therapeutic interventions for treatment aimed at decreasing or eliminating the symptoms of the diagnosis.

The view the BodyTalk system proposes is that, if the origins and causes of disease are not completely investigated, the disease may find an alternative way of expressing itself.
