The BodyTalk System

An integrative mind/body approach to health and well-being

trauma, depression, communication, synchronization, balanceBodyTalk is based on the principle that the body is capable of healing itself at all levels.  When a person cuts their finger or twists an ankle, there is an automatic, self-guided healing process in the body’s inborn intelligence.

In BodyTalk, we call this intelligence, the person’s Innate Wisdom. This Innate Wisdom guides the overall functioning of the bodymind complex, synchronizes all the activities as well as maintains balance, or homeostasis, within the bodymind complex. The aim of BodyTalk is to restore effective communication, synchronization and balance in function to the bodymind during times of disease.

What does BodyTalk address?

BodyTalk addresses the whole-person and their whole-story, using the entire context of their life to improve their health. Which is why we say that BodyTalk is Whole Person Healthcare — addressing mind, body, and spirit— that’s why it’s so effective.  Who you are today is the result of your childhood, your ancestor’s, your experiences, your relationships, and your genetics. Every aspect of your life—physical, emotional, environmental, psychological, spiritual, —is recorded in your bodymind and affects your overall health and sense of well-being.  Your symptoms convey messages from your bodymind that give valuable information about where you are out of balance.

Origins and Foundations of BodyTalk

spiritual transformation, consciousness, innate wisdom
John Veltheim in Palo Alto, 2016

The BodyTalk System was created by Dr. John Veltheim, an Australian chiropractor, acupuncturist, philosopher, and author.  John was the principal of the Brisbane College of Acupuncture and Natural Therapies for several years.  His extensive post graduate studies include:  Applied Kinesiology, bio-energetic therapy, osteopathy, sports medicine, counseling and comparative philosophy and theology. John also has extensive knowledge in the field of quantum physics and Consciousness.

John developed BodyTalk in the 1990s, following a personal health crisis, and soon after starting his BodyTalk practice in 1998 he began to train other practitioners and instructors throughout the world. Today, BodyTalk is being taught in over 37 countries, we have over 2600 Certified BodyTalk Practitioners and 85 Instructors and it is continuing to grow at an exponential rate.

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.

Stress and The Body’s Communication System

Every single cell, atom and system is in constant communication with every other cell, atom and system within the bodymind complex at all times.  The nervous system, the connective tissue, as well as other subtle energy circuits of the body such as the meridians and the electromagnetic frequencies produced by the body are also part of this communication web.  When a person experiences stress, these energy circuits can become compromised, weakened or disrupted. Often times the body is not able to reset these blown circuits which leads to degeneration, and illness in the body. On the other hand, when the flow of information is optimal, the bodymind can respond to stress in an effective manner and maintain balance or homeostasis.

Brain Balancing with the Cortices Technique

In order to further enhance the healing effects of the session, I would like to teach you how you can maintain a balanced brain regardless of how stressful your day might be.

The Cortices technique is at the core of the BodyTalk System and its purpose is to balance the communication between the two halves of the brain as well as within all levels of brain function.  All disease found in the body is reflected in the brain at some level.  When there is a mis-wired or disconnected neurological connection within the brain, there will be a corresponding reflection in the bodymind complex.  Implementing the Cortices Technique on a daily basis can have amazing results.

“Since I can remember I have suffered from dyslexia.  Doing the Cortices technique regularly has helped me resolve this condition.  I can’t thank you enough! The anxiety and stress that living with dyslexia caused me was a nightmare.  I thought I would have to life with it for my whole life.  Life is so much easier now!!”
