We are often asked many questions about BodyTalk, so we thought it would be useful to answer some of them for you here.
Don’t worry if you have another question we haven’t listed, please contact us and we’ll be happy to answer it or talk it through!
What can you treat with Bodytalk?
BodyTalk can help with physical pain, emotional issues, mental issues and spiritual connections. We don’t diagnose you or focus on treating specific symptoms, instead we explore the story behind them. Everyone is unique. What BodyTalk does is gives us some clues to the areas of your body that need attention. What might seem like an obvious problem to you is not necessarily the one your body wants to sort out first. BodyTalk prioritises what your body needs to balance itself. As a result your body’s natural healing abilities are re-focussed, which in turn leads to better communication within your body and a reduction in symptoms.
Am I given any medication, herbs or supplements?
There are no drugs, supplements or herbs involved. BodyTalk is a non invasive modality which assists the body’s natural healing process. This ability may have been affected if you have been experiencing stress on a physical, mental, emotional, spiritual or environmental level.
How many sessions will I need?
Typically people see changes for a specific problem after 2 or 3 sessions, however this can vary from person to person and can depend on how severe your symptoms are. Some people come regularly to help cope with the normal stresses of daily life or to get deeper personal insights into and to affect changes in other areas of their lifestyle, health or outlook.
How long does a session last?
On average a session lasts for about an hour. This allows for time to discuss any issues you have before the session and feedback after the session.
When should I come back?
When to return will be determined by your body at the end of a session. It is totally up to you as to whether or not you want to come again. It could be anything from a few days to a couple of months later. The timing is unique to you, what has been worked on and how long your body needs to process what has happened.
Can you treat children?
Yes, children can be treated. They do not have to lie still but can play or sleep instead. A parent, myself or another person can be used as a surrogate.
Can you treat animals?
