What do you get when you combine the wisdom of advanced yoga and advaitic philosophy, the insights of modern physics and mathematics, the energy dynamics of acupuncture, the clinical findings of Applied Kinesiology, andwestern medical expertise? A revolutionary new form of health care called BodyTalk.

BodyTalk is an astonishingly simple and effective form of therapy that allows the body’s energy systems to be re-synchronized so that 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, these lines of communication become compromised, which then leads to a decline in physical, emotional and/or mental health. Reconnecting these lines of communication then enables the body’s mechanisms to function at optimal levels, thus preventing disease and rapidly accelerating the healing process. BodyTalk can be used as a stand-alone system to treat many health problems, or seamlessly integrated into any health care system to increase its effectiveness and promote faster healing.

BodyTalk’s major assets are its simplicity, safety, and the speed of its results. It is non-invasive, objective in application, and works effectively on humans and animals alike. Even if a BodyTalk technique is performed incorrectly, it simply means that there will be no result or change. It will not make things worse. It follows, therefore, that anyone who receives BodyTalk has nothing to lose and everything to gain as far as their health is concerned.

The BodyTalk system works by first identifying the weak energy circuits that exist within the body. The practitioner relies on the innate wisdom of the body to locate the energy circuits that need repair by using a form of bio-feedback, which is a subtle muscle testing technique.

For every malfunctioning energy circuit that is found, the practitioner or client contacts the corresponding “points” with their hands. The practitioner then lightly taps the client on the top of the head, which stimulates the brain centers and causes the brain to re-evaluate the state of the body’s health. The result is that the general energy balance of the body is greatly improved.

The practitioner then taps the client on the sternum to “announce” the corrected energy flows to the rest of the body. This is beneficial because the heart is responsible for communicating the state of the body’s health to the rest of the body. Stimulating the heart by tapping the sternum forces the heart to store the corrected energy patterns in the body’s cellular memory. This means that the body will remember these changes after the treatment.
The BodyTalk treatment protocol is very straightforward and does not require any diagnosis. The practitioner relies on the guidance of innate wisdom, through muscle testing, to not only locate the weakened lines of communication in the body but also to find the proper order in which they are to be addressed. Just as the body heals a wound with a particular sequencing of chemical reactions, the body wants to address all healing in a certain order. This priority is paramount in the balancing process to initiate the body’s ability to heal itself. The healing process usually follows rather quickly.

Clinical results have shown that once the communications systems of the body have been reestablished and the bodymind complex synchronized, the body is capable of healing itself at a deep and lasting level.

BodyTalk has proven to be very effective in addressing many common diseases such as dyslexia, chronic viruses and infections, allergies, poor immune system functioning, sugar metabolism disorders, arthritis and general muscular-skeletal disorders, emotional and psychological problems, and many others.

Over the last few years, BodyTalk has been used to successfully address a wide range of psychological and physiological diseases. In addition, BodyTalk’s application within other health care modalities is the subject of much research at this time. Because the basic principles of BodyTalk are scientifically sound and far reaching in nature, we expect BodyTalk’s scope to be expanded considerably in the future.

John has written nine books on Acupuncture, Reiki, and BodyTalk and has specialized in incorporating dynamical systems theory into the medical model and energy medicine.

John and his wife Esther (who developed the Breakthrough system and has written six books on philosophy and psychology) have been lecturing internationally for nearly 20 years teaching Mindscape, Breakthrough, Reiki, Advaita philosophy, BodyTalk and life sciences. They currently live in Sarasota, Florida.





BodyTalk incorporates a comprehensive system of non-invasive techniques designed to enable people to live their lives to their potential. It incorporates state-of-the-art science and philosophy to help the body unlearn the habits, beliefs, biochemical pathways and postural patterns that are restricting the healthy functioning of the body-mind complex.

The BodyTalk practitioner does not diagnose disease or perform massage, manipulations, needling/injections. The BodyTalk practitioner does not prescribe diets, herbs, supplements or medications. Clinical experience has shown that once the body’s overall systems are balanced through BodyTalk, clients have exhibited significant improvement in many areas of health.

In the event of an emergency seek the help of the medical professional or your nearest medical facility.


  1. When it comes to using the Body Talk system, one should keep in mind that while it’s rather simple, it can produce a surprising amount of results in a short time period–since Body Talk can be used as a stand-alone healing system or can be integrated into another system so that the benefits can be taken advantage of. Several tests have shown that after undergoing this procedure, the body’s healing rate has improved and is much more reliable. If I had the chance to use the Body Talk system then I would still need guidance, since it is the very first time I would potentially be using it in the near future!

  2. Good post. I learn something totally new and challenging on websites I stumbleupon on a daily basis.

    It will always be helpful to read through articles from
    other authors and use something from their websites.


  3. WOW!

    for me, body talk is the key to breakthrough work.
    For years after receiving spa massages, my body would be relaxed through my mind would start to spin. I did not like this feeling, at all. I did not know this then, though body talk is what I needed!
    Working on myself through breakthrough is genius, however body talk, simply blew me away. The results, again for me, are instant and the release is wonderful! Cool


  4. Thanks for that. It is an excerpt from the old BodyTalk flier. It has been edited since then and simplified. I think there were a few authors on the project.
