A really great summary of BodyTalk
BodyTalk Knowledge Base*
BodyTalk is a state-of-the-art approach to integrative mind/body medicine by combining Western medicine’s scientifically supported research in fields such as neuroscience, epigenetics, and psychoneuroimmunology along with a large number of highly recognized ancient and modern and principles of knowledge, such as Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture, yoga and meditation philosophies, Chiropractic, consciousness studies and Energy Psychology.
The BodyTalk System also uses concepts from the fields of Information Science and Information Management, Dynamic Systems Theory and advanced process control and optimization principles found in the engineering fields, as well as advanced topics in mathematics and quantum physics.
Even though these fields may not seem to have an obvious connection to the healing processes of the bodymind, they are an integral part of how the BodyTalk Practitioner is able to quickly and easily gather relevant information from their client’s body.
Through the advanced BodyTalk courses, adjunct courses, life sciences and PaRama BodyTalk, the BodyTalk System is experiencing continued development and refinement of the overall system. Input from Instructors, Practitioners and students have provided valuable insight, learning and strengthening of all of the BodyTalk techniques, including development of new techniques as well as a deeper understanding of the BodyTalk System as a whole.
Left Brain/Right Brain Thinking
The BodyTalk Practitioner uses a combination of left-brain, linear logical thinking and memory, infused by right-brain, intuitive lateral thinking to establish the communication links needed. The BodyTalk System protocol chart is a flowchart that represents a map of the bodymind complex. Each section of the chart addresses certain aspects of the bodymind, including all physical, mental, emotional and energetic frequencies found in the body. This chart and the procedures to utilize it represent the left-brain side of the BodyTalk process. The experienced Practitioner then uses their right-brain intuitive process to complete the communication formulas which the bodymind complex then transforms into healing stimuli.
