THE SCOOP Magazine—  Animals use Animal Talk

Canines, perhaps more than any animals, are keyed in to their owners, said Laura Hames, the BodyTalk practitioner who offered demonstrations and sessions on the healing technique for both humans and animals last week. Canines want work, she told a group gathered at Zoe & Guido’s Pet Boutique, and they crave the discipline offered by their human companions.

“Part of their job is to support their owners,” she said. “If the owner has an imbalance, they will try to take that on and support that.”

Life’s stresses, however, sometimes block the body’s ability to communicate fully. BodyTalk, developed by a physician who combined Western and Eastern theories for an integrated health system, helps open up those energy channels.

“Animals have stress too,” Hames said. “But if we can get all those parts of the body to communicate fully, then the body can heal itself.”

A BodyTalk practitioner uses muscle testing and protocol chart to navigate through possible problems or blockages. The muscle testing — one of several techniques practitioners use — establishes the body’s permission for the process and then the direction for treatment.

Unlike traditional health systems, practitioners aren’t seeking to find what’s wrong with the body, Hames said. “We’re asking the body what it wants to improve.”

Those initial improvements — proper hydration, deep breathing, relaxation — can then help the body on its path to healing. The same system is used on animals, although practitioners generally do the muscle testing on the animal’s owner or themselves.

“You may want to start working with the animals, but you may not be able to until you first get a link with the owner,” Hames said. “It depends upon what comes up.”

Once it’s determined what the body wants to address, awareness or attention is brought to that specific area by gentle tapping on the head and then on the sternum. Some animals enjoy the tapping, Hames said, while others shy away from it.

“It’s all awareness,” Hames said. “So long as you have the focus on the animal, you can tap out on the owner as a surrogate for the pet.”

The idea of energy movement might seem far-fetched, but consider the power of prayer, she told the group. Twenty people praying for someone’s health from different parts of the globe can help that person heal more quickly.

“It’s a little bit out there, but there is something that resonates,” she said. “Our brains might say, ‘That’s silly,’ but then there’s something inside of us that goes, ‘Yeah, I feel that.’ “

One dog in particular during the demonstration seemed to enjoy the session. Hames said she felt a significant shift while working with Morgan, Alice Lee’s longtime service dog. The golden retriever is about to be retired, Lee said, and is struggling with a possible new role.

Lee, after the session, said she thought Hames was excellent at intuiting issues surrounding people and their dogs. “I thought she was right on about me and Morgan,” Lee said. “The main thing we need to work on now is grief. I know that is true for me and for Morgan? I don’t know. He has such presence for in the moment living; I’m not sure if we are projecting those feelings of grief onto him.”

But Lee said the experience was positive enough that she’d try it again with Morgan. And it’s helped her to focus on better preparing him for his transition into retirement. The demonstration also brought back the idea that she, too, should be open to new possibilities.

The Body Talk System: GPS for your Soul

By Alexis Lardieri

When I think of stress, here are a few letters that spring to mind—P.M.S., J.O.B., and my personal favorite, M.E.N. In today’s economy, stress can form in a number of ways and once you’ve graduated the eighth grade, it tends to show up more than just once a month landing almost everywhere! Either it’s written all over your face (and eventually will leave the lines to prove it) or it’s taking a major toll on your body causing anything from extreme body pain to rapid weight gain. Well, for those of you who are looking for the ultimate way to relieve your daily stress without the expenses of hiring a personal trainer or chiropractor, certified Body Talk practitioner, Leslie Nanson introduces the next best thing—and you don’t even have to leave your home to get it!

Certified Body Talk Practitioner, Leslie Nanson—“A human GPS to your soul”

The Body Talk System:

Body Talk is the newest form of healthcare sweeping the east coast. Practiced in countries around the world, Body Talk incorporates acupuncture, osteopathic and chiropractic philosophy, as well as the insights of modern physics and mathematics. Through exposure to stresses of day-to-day life, your body’s energy systems can become compromised and can lead to a decline in physical, emotional, and mental health. “Your body is a self-healing mechanism”, says Nanson. It acts almost as an electric circuit board. When one fuse blows, the entire body becomes out of “wack” and simply needs to be reset.

How does it work?

“Body Talk can be done in person or in the form of a distant session using a mindscape technique that allows me to tap into any energy blueprint”, says Nanson. During a Body Talk session, a series of yes and no questions are asked using neuromuscular feedback, which for those of you who failed Biology class (myself included) basically means your body has an innate wisdom that can detect what is off balance. “Through this testing procedure I can hold the areas that have been highlighted and address them by tapping gently on the head and the sternum,” Nanson says. By tapping on the head, the brain becomes aware of what is off balance. By tapping on the sternum, a.k.a. the heart, it ensures that the new information is stored throughout the whole body in order to prevent future imbalances–almost like saving memory to a computer. In fact, in more advanced forms of Body Talk, formulas can be programmed into the body so that it continues to heal itself once the session is complete!

Can Body Talk be used as a form of medication?

“Body Talk can be used as a standalone system to address many health problems in addition to stress and body pain, such as arthritis, digestive disorders, emotional disorders, and even learning disorders,” says Nanson. However, it does not diagnose or treat specific ailments and is best when used in conjunction with other forms of healthcare. Regular follow-up is also recommended to increase effectiveness and promote faster healing. Nanson also offers classes on various techniques through Body Access – right within the comfort of your own home.

First Body Talk Consult and Session: $155.00
Follow-up Session: $125.00
Body Access: $150.00 for the day–per person (minimum of ten people)

Body Talk Center: A division of Nurture New York: 1123 Broadway, Suite 1205 New York, NY 10010

In addition to the services and advice offered through Nanson, BN discovered that Body Talk is a simple and basic technique that can be acquired by anyone and can even be taught right here in New York City. The Body Talk Center: A Division of Nurture New York offers training on five basic simple techniques that are sure to relieve stress and body pain, promote better health, and increase overall energy.

So whether it’s that time of the month–you are seriously plotting to kill your boss–or you are on the verge of swearing off men forever—close your eyes, take out your GPS, type in B-O-D-Y-T-A-L-K, sit back, relax, and enjoy the results!

The BodyTalk SystemTM: The Missing Link to Optimum Health ”’ is a book by Dr. John VeltheimDr. John Veltheim Biography first published in September 1999. It explores the system of Bodytalk as form of Energy Medicine and Complimentary Healthcare system.

About The BodyTalk SystemTM Book

// <!–[CDATA[// –> The BodyTalk SystemTM bookThe Bodytalk Centre – Book Review – Bodytalk System™….The Missing Link To Optimum Health. describes an astonishingly simple and effective form of therapy that allows the body’s energy systems to be re-synchronized so they can operate as nature intended. The book explains that in the body each system, cell and atom is in constant communication with each other at all times. But through exposure to the stresses of day-to-day life these lines of communication can become compromised, which then leads to a decline in physical, emotional and/or mental well-being. Reconnecting these lines of communication enables the body’s mechanisms to function at optimal levels, thus preventing disease and rapidly accelerating the healing process. In this way, the use of The BodyTalk System stimulates the body’s innate ability to balance and heal itself. The BodyTalk System can be used as a standalone system to treat many health problems or can be seamlessly integrated into any Healthcare System to increase its effectiveness.The BodyTalk SystemTM Book also describes BodyTalkTM as simple, safe and fast. It is non-invasive and objective in application and works effectively on humans and animals alike. The book explains that even if a BodyTalk technique is performed incorrectly, it simply means that there will be no result or change.

Bodytalk in the Media

Positive Health Magazine

“The system was developed in 1995 by John Veltheim based on his background in traditional Chinese Medicine, Western Medicine, applied Kinesiology, Modern Physics, Mathematics, Advaita Philosophy and Yoga, unifying a large number of highly recognized health methods and principles of knowledge in one all-encompassing system. This makes The BodyTalkâ„¢ System, a comprehensive and dynamically designed system of Energy Medicine that is constantly evolving.” Article from Positive Health Magazine, The BodyTalkâ„¢ System – The Body’s Innate Wisdom

Wholelife Wholeness & Wellness Journal of Saskatchewan

“The basic premise underlying BodyTalk constitutes a new paradigm for synchronizing and balancing the bodymind that can be implemented in conjunction with any health care system. The body is a very complex ecosystem involving a delicate balance between physiological and biochemical functions, emotional and mental interactions, environmental influences, hereditary and genetic restrictions, and the need to synchronize all these factors into a cohesive whole.”Article from, Wholelife Wholeness & Wellness Journal Of Saskatchewan

How The BodyTalk System Is A Lot Like Chemical Engineeringby Jennifer Stelly, Certified BodyTalk Instructor

// <!–[CDATA[// –>
// <!–[CDATA[// –>

I never thought that when I left my engineering job just 4 short years ago that I would end
up using my degree more in the field of alternative/holistic/energy medicine than I did as
an engineer. That idea still amazes me on a daily basis! I spent about 10 years in the specialty chemicals field working in control systems and advanced process control (APC) before leaving it in June of 2004. In fact, my last job in that industry was working on optimization of several different chemical plants so that they would run more efficiently;
in effect, use less raw materials and less energy to create a higher purity product with less side-products. That ultimately makes the bosses happy, and fills their pocket books (not mine).

All along my path with BodyTalk I did always see a general parallel between my engineering background and BT, but it wasn’t until I was reading Dr. Oschman’s “Energy Medicine: The Scientific Basis” that the light bulb went on over my head… One day about two years ago, I realized that almost all of the concepts, science, math and physics presented in his book were not new to me. I had already studied them in university, or had applied them in the real-world chemical plant setting. The only difference there is that instead of talking about a chemical plant with its pipes, pumps, reactors and instrumentation, Oschman was describing the bodymind complex and how it operates and heals itself.

In that a-ha moment, I realized that the body also has these same pipes, pumps, reactors and instrumentation; we just call them arteries and veins, heart and diaphragm, liver and other organs, and the nervous system and five senses. The bodymind complex even has a “distributed control system”, or DCS in engineer-speak, that more or less controls the entire functioning of the system… sound familiar? That would most certainly be the brain! And in the nervous system, the individual nerve fibers act just like tuning loops that go out to some sort of sensor (temperature, pressure, level, etc.), read the data, and then send that information back to the control computer to be interpreted and used in
whatever way the control program for that system has been programmed (by the engineers) to do, or they send a signal to turn on or off some function. This is very much what happens in the amygdalae and limbic brain with the fight/flight response and subconscious mind.

I could go on and I could probably even relate almost any part of a chemical plant to some similar function in the bodymind, but I think you get the point. One other major point that I want to bring up is that when I’m talking about a chemical plant or any specific process, the basic assumption made there is that the system is “closed”. Closed
systems do not interact with the environment and things like atmospheric temperature and pressure are adjusted for as necessary in calculations, but generally do not affect the
process to a substantial enough degree, so they are often ignored in order to make the math easy. The bodymind complex is not a “closed” system… we interact with the world and environment around us physically, mentally, emotionally and energetically. And on top of that we have consciousness and the conscious mind as another factor entirely. I will just point out here that the conventional medical model treats the bodymind as a closed system, which is just a small part of their problem.

So, as you can see from this engineering perspective the human body is a bit like a chemical plant, but is a conscious bio-chemical plant far more complex and amazing than what humans could ever design and build. I often say that I went from doing APC of chemical plants to APC of the human body and immune system, and that seems to make sense to many people I speak with. Of course this perspective and description I have
given really doesn’t do justice to the bodymind, so please remember that this is still a limited view, as it is also taking a Cartesian-Newtonian look at the bodymind complex and not viewing it as a whole like we do from the quantum physics realm. And that’s another topic for some other time!
