What can I expect at my first session? Or that for my dog, cat, horse, cow etc?
Once you’ve made your appointment, I send you a Well-Being form containing questions to be returned before the day we meet. I also send with this some light reading to help you become more familiar with BodyTalk. Sessions are either in person or done remotely (distance session).
If the visit is:
In person (animal or person): If session is for your animal, we’ll be seated and you will be your animal’s surrogate i.e. I’ll be muscle checking you while observing your animal. If the session is for you, you will get to relax fully clothed on a massage table (or chair if you’d prefer). We’ll talk occasionally throughout the session when I will be muscle checking you and using some tapping techniques to integrate the session.
Remotely/Distance: I will ask you to provide me with a photo which I find gives me a really lovely connection. I usually do the session alone, when at the same time you may like to lie down and relax or allow your animal friend to have the freedom to do the same and also to be able to walk around and drink at their leisure. I may need to call you to have a chat, and then afterwards inform you fully by emailing a voice recording of the session. If preferred we can connect via Skype for example, and we’ll do your session together. It’s very low key, when all I require of you is to be available for an occasional question and you may also ask or tell me things along the way. You can be having a cuppa etc, as there’ll be periods when you may not hear very much.
How much time is required for a session?
Thirty to sixty minutes. The first appointment is typically up to ninety minutes. The duration of a session is not indicative of its effectiveness as even the briefest of sessions can be significant. Price remains the same.
How can BodyTalk help people and animals?
In too numerous ways to mention. The BodyTalk system doesn’t diagnose nor work with ‘named’ conditions but rather a range of symptoms. Please refer to the people and/or animal testimonials of this website and that of the International BodyTalk Association.
Why don’t you diagnose?
Because our body is viewed as a far more complex system than that viewed by the Cartesian model which current medical practice is based upon when drugs or interventions such as surgery can be prescribed.
How soon will I see/feel the benefits of a session?
You may or may not feel sensations (like tummy rumbles, tingles) or changes immediately (relief of discomfort) as it’s likened to working through the layers of an onion. Influencing factors like age, health condition, how long you’ve had the health issue (physical, mental, emotional etc), any other challenges you may have/have had and their complexity etc will influence how quick you’ll respond and how many sessions are required to bring your body back to its best natural healthy state.
Changes can also appear as a shift in perspective, change of attitude or general feeling of well-being immediately, days or weeks later as layer by layer the return to your more healthy natural state takes place.
Animals tend to show quicker and more obvious changes than people as they are not as emotionally complex as us.
How many sessions will I need?
This will depend on many factors including your age, condition of health, whether or not you have a chronic condition, your desire to heal etc. Three to eight would be average. At the end of each session I continue using the muscle checking technique to ask whether a future BodyTalk session is a priority for you or not. If ‘yes’, when (in ‘x’ amount of days or weeks?). BodyTalk is also popular for personal development when it can be used on a regular basis e.g. every six-eight weeks or quarterly.
Do I bring my animal/s to you?
You can, in particular if it won’t be stressful for them when you will be their surrogate i.e. I muscle check you while focusing on your friend. If they aren’t with you, we still go through the same process when a photo can be a great reference for me. Distance sessions when you do not need to be present either are also offered, so they may remain in the comfort of their home, particularly for those who don’t normally leave their environment or are harder to transport such as a horse or goat. What this means is, I am able to connect with them energetically and give as good a session as if with me personally. I just require specific information to act as a coordinate like their name, address, date of birth and a photo please.
How does a treatment work if I’m not in the room with you or you’re using a photo? Is this less effective than being with you?
This is commonly referred to as distance healing based on applied quantum physics theory including the holographic model, the theory of quantum entanglement and the concept of timelessness i.e. at the level of consciousness we are all connected and everything is happening at once. I encourage you to google this subject. It is no less effective and results are available to read if you research. Many of my testimonials are of distance sessions, particularly for animals.
Will BodyTalk work if I don’t understand it?
Thank you for reading my FAQ page and I look forward to meeting you!
