BodyTalk is a holistic healthcare system that was developed by Dr. John Veltheim in the late 1990s. It is based on the principle that the body has an innate ability to heal itself, and that all parts of the body are interconnected and can affect each other. BodyTalk uses a combination of traditional and modern healthcare practices to help the body heal itself.
The history of BodyTalk dates back to the 1990s when Dr. Veltheim, an Australian chiropractor, acupuncturist, and traditional Chinese medicine practitioner, began exploring the relationship between the body and the mind. He found that by using a combination of traditional and modern healthcare practices, he could help his patients achieve better health outcomes. Dr. Veltheim went on to develop the BodyTalk system, which is now used by healthcare practitioners around the world.
BodyTalk works by identifying imbalances in the body and addressing them using a variety of techniques. Practitioners use a technique called muscle testing to determine which areas of the body need attention. Once imbalances have been identified, the practitioner uses a variety of techniques to restore balance and promote healing. These techniques can include tapping, breathing exercises, and visualization techniques.
