How BodyTalk Works
Every human being has the ability to activate his or her self-regulating powers. For example, when we cut a finger, internal mechanisms in our body automatically start to close the wound within a few minutes. This process does not just have a physical component, but also has emotional and mental components which we draw on to activate our resilience.
However, there are definitely times when we lack the capacity to do this. This may be because we are in a stressful situation. Or because we have used up our resources as a consequence of taking on too much in everyday life. Hence, our lifestyle, demands from others, or constant mobile accessibility can overtax us and throw our systems out of balance.
It's all a question of communication
Our body is constantly working on synchronising internal processes and coordinating them for optimal health. However, if this synchronisation is compromised, the systems can no longer communicate with each other adequately. They become unbalanced and trigger symptoms, or even diseases.
When we are in pain, it is our body that is communicating with us. This is BodyTalk. Whether it is a lump in the throat, anger in the stomach, or a broken heart, our body lets us know that something is wrong.
The BodyTalk System uses this knowledge and restores the connection between the physical parts and the physiological processes of the body. In doing so, fears, patterns of belief, and emotionally charged experiences in the subconscious/conscious mind are addressed — with the aim of re-stimulating and sustainably re-establishing the body's innate self-regulating ability.
The BodyTalk has been shown to improve chronic pain. This is evidenced by the results of the study »Evaluation of BodyTalk, a novel mind-body medicine, for chronic pain treatment« (2015), which was supervised by scientists from the University of Los Angeles (UCLA), among others.
For the International BodyTalk Association (IBA)
I wrote an article about the New York Times bestseller »Radical Remission, Surviving Cancer Against All Odds« by psychotherapist Dr. Kelly A. Turner. She received her doctorate from UC Berkeley and is a specialist in integrative oncology. Personally and moving, Turner presents various therapies and methods that can positively influence and support the healing process of serious illnesses. Including the BodyTalk System. The book is not only a great inspiration for BodyTalk practitioners - it is an ode to the uniqueness of life and encourages us to embrace it again and again with joy and gratitude.
