This video is a series of two videos explaining and demonstrating the effectiveness of The Cortices Technique – a technique so important to one’s health that Dr. John Veltheim decided to distribute the technique openly to the public.
BodyTalk is an astonishingly simple and effective holistic therapy that allows the body’s energy systems to be re-synchronized so they can operate as nature intended. Each system, cell, and atom is in constant communication with each other at all times. Through exposure to the stresses of day-to-day life, however, these lines of communication can become compromised or disconnected, which then leads to a decline in physical, emotional and/or mental well-being. Reconnecting these lines of communication enables the body’s internal mechanisms to function at optimal levels, thus repairing and preventing disease while rapidly accelerating the healing process. In this way, BodyTalk stimulates the body’s innate ability to balance and heal itself on all levels.
Flexible and Effective
BodyTalk can be used as a stand alone system to treat many chronic and acute health problems, or can be seamlessly integrated with any healthcare regimen to increase its overall effectiveness. BodyTalk’s major assets are its simplicity, safety and the speed of results.
BodyTalk is non-invasive, objective in application and works effectively on humans and animals alike. If a BodyTalk technique is implemented incorrectly, there will be no result or change; it will not make things worse. Because of this built-in safety factor, anyone who receives BodyTalk has nothing to lose and everything to gain as far as his or her health and wellness is concerned.
What Does BodyTalk Address?
To Each a Unique, Dynamic Balance
In the BodyTalk System, we tend not to talk about addressing specific diseases. Instead, the BodyTalk philosophy is that every person has a unique balance that should be addressed. Once balanced, the client’s own innate healing wisdom will successfully address specific symptoms and establish lasting patterns of good health. The ideal goal is to find the best, most dynamic point of balance within our bodymind complex, such that we are easily able to respond to the issues life throws at us with ease and grace.
Your Body’s Own Healing Process
Naturally, most clients arrive for a session with a health concern, and this problem is addressed. However, the BodyTalk Practitioner does not make a diagnosis for the purpose of establishing a specific session protocol. BodyTalk recognizes that although two people may appear to show the exact same symptoms, the communication links needed to balance their conditions may be entirely different. No two sessions are ever alike!
Balancing the Brain
One of the core philosophies of the BodyTalk System is that all disease found in the body is reflected in the brain at some level. As an example, if there is a neurological connection in the brain that is mis-wired or disconnected, then there will be a corresponding reflection in the bodymind complex in the form of a physical, mental, bio-chemical or other malfunction. One of the main goals of BodyTalk is to balance communication between the two halves of the brain, as well as within all levels of brain function. Improving this communication can quickly and easily address many common issues, as well as improve brain function and memory overall. The BodyTalk Cortices Technique is one of the most powerful techniques within the system, and has been made available to the general public so that you can start feeling better and more balanced TODAY.
One of the major areas addressed by The BodyTalk System is the realm of personal and spiritual growth. Balancing the body biochemically, physiologically, and emotionally, while addressing specific beliefs and attitudes, the BodyTalk System is a very powerful tool in the field of personal development.
Practitioners and clients alike can experience changes in the way they relate to others, as well as the relationships they have with friends and family. Many individuals find new jobs or improvements within the work they are currently doing and also find an increase in the overall wellness and real happiness they experience on a daily basis. The personal development experienced through BodyTalk can affect an individual on all levels, in all ways.
A BodyTalk Session
Tailored To You
BodyTalk sessions are easy, safe and comfortable; they are done with the client fully clothed; there is no need for disrobing. A BodyTalk session usually lasts between 15 and 45 minutes. The length of a session is not indicative of the quality of the session or the results that occur; as even the simplest sessions can be quite profound. The bodymind knows just how many changes and corrections it is ready to initiate in any given session, and will therefore indicate when the session is complete and may even establish a time when you may need to return for a follow-up session.
Background and Communication
You and your BodyTalk Practitioner often begin your session by discussing your health status and whatever other personal issues you may wish to address. Then, you will either relax in a chair or on a treatment table while the practitioner, positioned at your side, will gently use your arm in such a manner to establish Yes/No communication. This Yes/No communication is also called neuromuscular biofeedback, which is similar to applied kinesiology. By understanding that your body has an inherent knowledge of itself, the BodyTalk Practitioner is able to quickly and easily ask your body what communication circuits have become compromised and in which order these lines of communication need to be re-established for the fastest possible healing process to occur.
Building Links or Formulas
Your practitioner uses the BodyTalk Protocol Chart to determine the weakened or broken energy circuits in your bodymind complex that are being highlighted by your innate healing wisdom. Once an energy circuit is identified, any additional details that are relevant are determined. Your BodyTalk Practitioner will link these destination points in the sequence indicated, thereby constructing a “formula” that describes the energetic circuit that will be re-established.
Tap to Synchronize and Balance
Tapping on the body to get it to focus on healing has been used by some indigenous holistic systems, such as yoga, for centuries. For BodyTalk specifically, tapping on the head tells the brain to “fix” the faulty communication circuit and the heart to “store” the fix. This activates the brain and helps to facilitate the body’s own ability to restore and maintain its optimum health.
For every malfunctioning energy circuit or formula found, you or your practitioner may hold the corresponding “points” with your hands, in order to help provide focus. You may also breathe deeply, as this helps your brain scan the body to locate the imbalances. The practitioner then lightly taps you on the top of the head, which stimulates your brain and causes it to initiate corrections to the broken circuits. This is similar to how the CPU of a computer runs the programs and makes all the calculations.
Your practitioner then taps you on the sternum to “save” the corrected energy circuit in the heart center and to share this information with every single cell in the body. The heart is responsible for communicating the state of the body’s health to the rest of the body through the heart beat. This means that your body will remember these changes after the session, just like hitting the save button on a document will save changes to the computer hard drive so you can access them again later.
BodyTalk is Cumulative
Because your body stores the changes made by the brain during the tapping process, this means that every formula or circuit that is corrected builds on the one before. Your body actually remembers the BodyTalk sessions it receives and your healing process will continue with each additional session you have.
