When I first heard about BodyTalk, I did not really understand what the theory behind it was all about. I met up with Ms. Angie Tourani, an instructor of the BodyTalk System, who kindly took some time off to give me a free session in order for me to experience what it was all about. She explained that BodyTalk could be done by all ages, how and whom it was created by, what the process was, the before and after effects of the system and so on. The talk lasted for 45 minutes which is usually how it is done for those who are newly introduced to the BodyTalk System.
Angie first made me lie down on a sofa so I would be comfortable and started tapping my head and tapping my chest while repeating a few words under her breath. This went on for a couple of minutes. As this was happening, I felt relaxed and calm. Angie then asked me to think about the things that mattered to me most and little did I know, all my past troubles were suddenly cleared up. She happened to know exactly how I felt about a few aspects in my life and she even knew that I eat vegetarian meat (which, by the way, she suggested not to have anymore). Whenever Angie had figured something out, she would tap my head and chest while saying a few words quietly to fix it. After she completed the whole process, I felt like I was tension free and happy. The whole thing took around half an hour for Angie, and I must say it was one heck of a helpful half hour.
The main point that BodyTalk emphasizes on is to forget your medications and therapists; BodyTalk is the most natural way to get rid of your problems.
Angie Tourani explains about the history, purpose and process of the BodyTalk System…
First we start by asking permission from the physical, mental and spiritual levels of a body and once we get that, we move on. We work with five elements which according to Chinese medicine are the elements – fire, air, metal, water, and wood. Each element is of different organs, senses, taste, expansion, contraction and controls literally everything. We also work with the five senses of taste, touch, sight, hearing and smell. Each body part has a consciousness or intelligence, and once these don’t start functioning well then it affects the physiology and the structure.
Sometime in the mid 1990’s, a man named Dr. John Veltheim decided to put the extensive and medicinal information of acupuncture, homeopathy, physics and even Chinese medicine all together and termed it BodyTalk System. The head office is in Florida and since then it has been taught and read worldwide, and has been translated into many different languages as well.
The philosophy behind BodyTalk is that…
