How should I prepare for an appointment?
- Prepare a short list of things you would like to improve in your life, such as physical conditions, behaviors, limiting beliefs, unpleasant past experiences, fears, worries, finances, etc.
- Drink a healthy amount of water, to promote hydration and detoxification
- Wear loose-fitting, comfortable clothes
- Remove electronics, jewelry, belt and pocket items
- Plan time to relax after the session, when possible
How will I feel right after an appointment?You may feel lighter or more relaxed. You may find it easier to let go of old thoughts or have new insights. You may sleep better. As your treatment continues to run, you may feel like your body is busy processing new information. You may feel tired or emotional for a few days. Please listen to your body if it asks for extra rest, water or pampering.
How many treatments will I need?
Clients usually notice improvements in their well-being within the first few sessions. The complexity and severity of your condition affects the number of treatments you will need. After your conditions improve, you are welcome to continue treatment as needed, to maintain internal harmony. Periodic treatment helps you meet the ever-changing demands of life more gracefully.
How can I improve my treatment results?To enhance treatment results we recommend using BodyTalk's quick brain-balancing technique, Cortices, on a daily basis. Watch this video to learn how. The Cortices technique improves brain circulation and promotes deep integration. You can start balancing Cortices right away on yourself and your loved ones.
I don't see energy. How do I know that energy medicine is working?
Physics tells us that the smallest known unit of matter—smaller than the atom, the electron, the quark—is simply energy (information). Energy vibrating at slower frequencies is tangible; examples of this include bone and muscle. Energy vibrating at higher frequencies is intangible; examples include thoughts and emotions. Although you cannot see your ideas and feelings, you perceive that they exist.
In the same way that you can modify your thought patterns, you can work with other energy frequencies of the bodymind complex to effect change within its dynamic systems. While you may not literally see energy shifting in sessions, you will observe changes in your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well-being.
Will energy healing conflict with my medical treatments or medication?
No. All treatments offered at Synergy Wellness can be used for complementary or stand-alone health care. No medications are contraindicated.
Is BodyTalk safe?
Yes. The BodyTalk system has been practiced throughout the world for 15 years. There are thousands of BodyTalk practitioners throughout the world who use the BodyTalk techniques on a regular basis. In all of these cases, the BodyTalk system has proven to be a totally safe and effective form of treatment. The reason for this is that BodyTalk therapy only involves rebalancing energy systems throughout the body—there is nothing invasive or dangerous about it.
Practitioners do advise that BodyTalk is not a substitute for conventional medical care, and there may be times when consultation with a physician is required.
Why does BodyTalk work so well?
With BodyTalk, the practitioner does not need to diagnose the problem with the client. The innate intelligence of the human body informs the practitioner which energy systems need to be rebalanced and in which particular order. In this vein, the treatment is in no way influenced by what the practitioner thinks is wrong with the client.
When you consider that there are over a billion synchronized activities that occur in the human body every second, it's not hard to see that the conscious mind of a practitioner may have some difficulty in determining exactly what is going on inside someone's body.This is where the Body Talk system excels. The practitioner is relieved of this burden and the source of the problem is actually the provider of the information that is needed for the client to heal. This is a key aspect of the BodyTalk system and is probably the main reason why the system works so well.
Can someone be over-treated with BodyTalk?
No. The BodyTalk practitioner takes specific instructions from the innate intelligence of the body, which knows exactly what needs to be treated and in what order. Therefore it is not possible for someone to be over-treated with BodyTalk.
Even if a client were to receive treatment that was not indicated as a priority by the innate intelligence of the client's body, the treatment would have no effect on the client—positive or negative.
Are there any side effects to BodyTalk?
BodyTalk involves tapping into the innate intelligence of the client before treatment. Consequently, the BodyTalk practitioner is always aware of what the client's body can safely deal with at any particular time.
Therefore, not surprisingly, the clinical findings of BodyTalk therapy have shown that the system is totally safe. By virtue of the BodyTalk treatment protocol, the human body will not allow the practitioner to treat them for a condition unless it is perfectly safe to do so.
There are, however, some healing symptoms may that occur in certain cases. For instance, if a client's body is ridding itself of a virus, flu type symptoms may occur until this process is complete. Symptoms could also appear for a short time after treating parasites, toxins, and emotional releases. These are always short-lasting, and as stated above, the innate intelligence of the body is always questioned by the practitioner beforehand to ensure that the body is capable of dealing with healing the particular condition.
Finally, insulin levels may need to be monitored after a blood sugar balancing treatment if the client is a diabetic. BodyTalk practitioners know to never treat blood sugar on a diabetic unless the client is capable of monitoring and adjusting their own insulin levels.
How was BodyTalk originally conceived?
BodyTalk was originally conceived in Australia by Dr. John Veltheim. Dr. Veltheim has worked in and studied in a broad range of health care modalities for over 20 years, including traditional acupuncture, chiropractic, kinesiology, Reiki and bioenergetics.
In the mid-nineties, he began to put together a treatment protocol to address diseases such as dyslexia, chronic viruses and infections, poor immune system functioning, certain types of allergies, poor blood sugar balancing, arthritis and musculoskeletal disorders, organ dysfunction and general energy system imbalances.
This system was called BodyTalk and was based on the wisdom of advanced yoga, the energy dynamics of acupuncture, the clinical findings of applied kinesiology, and western medical expertise. Since that time the BodyTalk protocol has been taught to many people in over twenty countries around the world.
It has been expanding since these early days and the rate of new discovery within the Body Talk paradigm is now increasing exponentially. The fundamentals of the Body Talk system are so sound that in the future its principles may well be integrated into mainstream health care.
