Body Talk, a Healing Modality who restores the Body’s communication with itself




We all do communicate for different purposes, but most of all to make ourselves be heard, and to get our point across.

Body Talk is no difference when it comes to communication. However, this communication is inwardly and I will show in this article how it works.

Who has founded Body Talk?

This awesome healing modality was founded by an Australian Chiropractor, Dr. John Veltheim.

Dr. John Veltheim now lives in Florida, U.S.A. 

Here is an interview with Dr. John Veltheim, explaining in his own words, about the Body Talk System.

The interview starts at 4:10


For what is Body Talk actually being used?

Body Talk, as those two words so terrifically describe it, is the body’s own method to communicate with itself, and with all the other bodily functions within the body system, to either restore or maintain perfect health.

Without communication between these other bodily functions we couldn’t exist at all, therefore, good communication is crucial when it comes to our overall health.

These are the different systems within the body:

  • Musculo-skeletal system
  • Blood system
  • The Endocrine system
  • The Organs
  • The Nervous system, etc.

All these systems are in good communication when the body is healthy. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case, and we might feel the lack of it as a result of not feeling well, or, being really sick, or due to trauma, physically as well psychologically.


Body Talk

What happens when the body doesn’t communicate?

To make this part a bit clearer, I will tell my clients this little story. In our belief and understanding of holistic energy medicine, the body-mind is an entity who does know what is the best for itself. This is the part where the body is usually very good at restoring an imbalance and therefore will heal itself on an ongoing basis.

When we sleep at night, this is usually the best time when the body will do its work of restoring health. Our conscious mind, or “blabbermouth”, as I like to call it, is also at sleep and won’t interfere.

However, there are sometimes circumstances, or an overload on misinformation and miscommunication, where the body-mind has a problem understanding what another system is saying.

” The Liver is talking to Pancreas, but Pancreas can’t, or won’t understand what Liver has to say, the result of this miscommunication (it has to be that way for quite some time) in most cases can lead to a disease known as Diabetes”

This is just a small portion of what can happen when our body is not in the right mode of communicating with the other body systems.

How does a Body talk Session will look like?

The Body Talk Practitioner will use kinesiology muscle testing and will ask questions which can be answered either with a yes or no.


Muscle Testing


There is also a Body Talk protocol, which the practitioner will use to establish the correct source of the problem and to restore the missing communication between the different body systems.

This protocol is very detailed and requires good knowledge, at least an understanding, of the function of each body system and their branches. The practitioner will learn about it in the different training modules of the body talk educational system.


Protocol Chart


The client will either sit or lie down, fully closed and relaxed. The practitioner prepares himself and asks the client’s body if he/she has permission to proceed.

Note: As a Body Talk practitioner myself, I have come along the situation, only twice, where the client has agreed to be worked on but the body-mind did refuse. In both cases, I have given Reiki for 5-10 minutes, since I am also a Reiki Master/Teacher, and after asking again, the body-mind did allow proceeding with the session.

I did earlier mention, that the body talk protocol is the absolute guideline for the practitioner to find the gap between the different body systems.

When the problem of concern has been established, the practitioner will first slightly tap on the client’s head (both brain hemispheres are being tapped on) and then on the client’s chest/heart area.

The tapping is an important sequence of the body talk session. By tapping on the top of the head we actually awaken the brain to realize and check, or scan the whole body and realize that there is indeed somewhere a miscommunication going on.

After a few slight taps on the head, the slightly tapping on the heart area is being done to save the newly reestablished communication.

With these two tapping steps, the communication between the different, non-communicating body systems has, once again, been restored.

This healing modality is safe, non-invasive, and very effective. For more information, you can go to the main website of  IBA Global Healing


I am a Body Talk practitioner myself and can perform a body talk session one-on-one, or as I do in many cases as a distance session.

If you to have a distance session with me and need more information you can Contact Us.

I also would like to hear from you and if you already had some experiences by receiving a Body Talk? I certainly would like to hear about it.

Wishing you always an outstanding day!

  1. Excellent post Sylvia.  Body Talk seems like a very useful and user-friendly healing technique. I can see how it is a natural fit with the other techniques and modalities that you make available to clients. My question is, after the source of the miscommunication is established, is the tapping on the head and the heart related to EFT?

    Thank you


    1. Thank you, Austin, for your comment and question.

      No, Body Talk is not related to EFT. The tapping on the head is awakening the brain to start to scan the whole body system and its functions and the heart tapping is to “save” the new re-establish connection. Like you would download new software and save it in one of your file folders. It is really very simple.

      That’s all. I hope this has answered your question?


  2. Hi Sylvia,

    Body Talk… This headline is very interesting. For that, I read your article full and I must say you doing an outstanding job. I impressed. I have never heard the term before. Through your article, I can understand clearly. I think it is useful for our mind, body, soul and spirit. Now I will bookmark this page and share it with my friends. Thank You for writing nicely.

  3. Sylvia, this is a very interesting article on Body Talk. I have not heard about this before, but I am a proponent of holistic and natural healing. I do not like drugs as the first course of action when things are amiss.The communication inside the body certainly seems like  good place to start!

    How did you become a practitioner of Body Talk?

    1. Thank you, Dave, for your comment on the matter.

      I am also agreeing with you that when we do experience some imbalance in our bodies we don’t need to run to the Emerge all the time or need a prescription. Sometimes we can help ourselves to restore balance once again and Body Talk is, therefore, a very good holistic method to do just that.

      To become a BT practitioner you can find out if there are courses available near you. Here is the link  Find Courses

      I hope this helps 🙂

      All the best


  4. Hi Sylvia

    I am really glad that I happened to land on your page. The article very much is about one of the complementary healing modalities and you have been very passionate about that. Holistic healing and complementary modalities of healing are not alien to me but this BODY-TALK is a bit. In fact, I had a vague idea about the concept of establishing harmony between different organs of your body for a holistic well being but, your articles has dispelled that vagueness pretty much. Seriously, I was never this sure that our ills could be result  of miscommunications between different organs of our body. So to talk, your article gives me a whole new perspective on holistic healing.

    A Geriatric Nurse and a Nursing Instructor also having passion for Reiki, Body Talk, EFT is rare. I am sure your wide expertise would cause a great service to humanity. I am on the same page with you while your focus is spreading the awareness that actual healing is being able to “heal yourself” and that health pertains to the mind, body, soul and spirit.

    Many thanks to Dr. John Veltheim who propounded this modality of ‘Body Talk’ for making holistic healing an achievable goal.

    Keep up the good work Sylvia!!

    1. Thank you, Kavita, for your comment which is also very enthusiastic and I appreciate it.

      It was always my aim to bring holistic healing to the layperson, to show that it is something which everyone can use as a complementary method to any existing treatment from their medical practitioners.

      If I can help people to lose their fears of the “unknown” by reducing confusion and to open their minds than my job is done.

      All the best


  5. I have never heard of the Body talk system. it all sounds great! Very much like homeostasis and chakra. 

    I agree the body needs to be in balance. I use CBD to help gain the homeostasis. have you ever tried that?

    It would be interesting to know your opinion as you have had quite the medical experience!

    1. Dennis, thank you for your comment and view on the matter.

      I personally haven’t tried CBD for myself but I do know about its positive effect on people and on certain health conditions.

      However, BT doesn’t intervene with any of that, either medical treatments or holistic medicine. It is an enhancement to speed up healing wherever healing is needed, physically, emotionally and mentally.

      I hope this makes it a bit clearer. 

      You can use CBD and also can receive a BT session, both are independent to be used but also won’t interfere which each other.

  6. I found this article to be absolutely fascinating, and I learned a lot of things about the body and it’s communication within itself that I honestly didn’t know.  For a while, I studied to be a life coach, but I ended up having a life event of mine own that put my studies on hold, and I haven’t yet gone back to it.  I was excited to see your website, and I’m so looking forward to your articles and insight.  I will bookmark it and come back often.

    1. Thank you for your time in leaving a comment, appreciated.

      I hope, that my existing and my future articles will help you to answer questions you might have or will give you ideas about a topic which you can pursue even further.

  7. Amazing article. I will go through this again as I am intrigued by the topic naturally. Mind-Body communication is indeed necessary for a healthy life. Being in tune with our body and listening to its needs can save us a lot of visits to the hospital. We just need to learn to slow down. I haven’t received a Body talk before but it’s something I don’t mind exploring. 

    1. Thank you for your comment and insight on the matter.

      Yes, it would be a good idea to receive a Body Talk session this will certainly make it easier and better to understand what you have just read.

  8. Hi Sylvia
    Your site brings a whole new concept and vision to me as i had never heard about this discipline(body-talk) before. Never really thought that our ills could be caused by lack of, or miscommunications between different organs of our body. But when you think about it, seems so obvious now 🙂
    This has the merit to stir new interests in me and I will for sure do some research on the topic. Thank you very much for that.
    Concerning your site, things are well explained and generally gives the reader the urge to read more, and that’s great. Would be great however if your pictures (with text) could be clickable or of better quality.

    Otherwise, great job!!!

    Jean Michel

    1. Hi Jean Michel,

      Thank you for your comment about body talk and your suggestions. Pictures are not clickable to avoid being downloaded as so is to content.

      The size of the pictures has to be limited to avoid longer waiting time for the site to appear.

      Sorry about that 🙂


  9. Body Talk… very interesting. I have never heard the term before. But, oddly enough, I have firsthand knowledge that what Dr. John Veltheim is saying is correct. There was a time when I was way off balance- for all sorts of reasons. I didn’t understand that health pertains to the mind, body, soul and spirit. I didn’t understand that what we ‘consume’, whether physically or emotionally, or mentally… affects our health in those arenas. I was young and dumb, and living around toxic situations and dysfunctional relationships. A major life event removed me from all the things that had been polluting my well-being. Amazingly, over time, I was healed of every so called affliction that had plagued me for years. I was even clinically diagnosed with bipolar and depression- both of which vanished into thin air.
    I am a believer that health is comprehensive- mind body soul and spirit, and when we nurture these different aspects of our selves we will heal.

    1. Hi Tommy,

      Thank you so much for your comment and your testimonial in how you have experienced healing.

      I agree with you 100% and I also like to say that we are on a journey. We do learn everyday something new and will add lots of things to our tool box.

      Ride the wave, as I always like to say, you will reach the next safe shore for sure. 🙂
