Chemo and radiation for colon cancer
Preschool director and reiki master, New York, NY
“I was diagnosed with colon cancer a couple of months ago. I started the radiation and chemotherapy treatment soon after my diagnosis. Since I believe in holistic medicine, I also did Reiki and other modalities in conjunction with the conventional treatment. Jean Menges suggested I try the Body Talk to aid in my healing, even though I did not know what BodyTalk was about, I jumped at the opportunity to try it. I was very impressed at Jean’s profound knowledge of the cells and the body as well as her intuitive guidance. Body talk has helped me immensely, giving me insights by way of consciousness and physically made me feel better by repairing cells and raising my vibrational frequency. My doctor was very impressed by my results and the way I was looking and feeling. I told him about BodyTalk and he was very interested. I am now telling everyone about this wonderful healing modality that I experienced because it was a big part of my healing. Jean Menges is a precious gem and I feel blessed to have met her.”
Enlightenment and self-discovery
Certified health counselor and entrepreneur, New York, NY
When I think of my BodyTalk
experience with Jean Menges, the first word that comes to mind is "Wow!"
After that, I am speechless. There are no other words to describe this
miraculous, draw-dropping process of enlightenment and self-discovery. I
have explored countless methods of healing and self-improvement and,
from my view, this one stands out as one of the best!
I cannot express my gratitude toward Jean. Her commitment to healing is unparalleled and profoundly inspiring. She was the light that allowed me to find new possibility and strength in myself. I couldn't have done it without her!
Opened a new channel of vitality
Very happy mid-lifer, New York, NY
"Words can't do justice to the amazing healing power of the BodyTalk treatment. I had heard positive things about BodyTalk from a friend a few years ago and went to Wisdom House for BodyTalk more out of curiosity than in search of assistance with a specific ailment. Turns out it was just what I've needed! I'd been making my way through the aftermath of a really tough period - 9/11, the loss of both my parents, a profound career transition, my arrival at middle age. Jean's deep listening and gentle care have opened up a new channel of vitality that I had hoped was in me but just couldn't connect to. I feel renewed, healthy, and ready to have a rip-roaring - and long - second half of my life!”
Uncovering reasons for keep getting sick
Culinary chef and educator, Westchester, NY
“I had the opportunity to work with Jean earlier this year to address many of the underlying root cause to my hormonal imbalance and other chronic health concerns. I was not sure what I was getting into at first but once the work began it allowed me to tap into my body on a deeper level. This uncovered many of the reasons I kept getting sick despite having a great eating well and exercise regimen. I believe it came at the right time as I was desperately searching for answers and an opportunity to build on the healing process. The BodyTalk work gave me the capability to let go of unwanted energy and illness to move forward in becoming a healthier person. I would recommend anyone to Jean as she maintains a professional yet harmonious atmosphere allows anyone with any personal belief system to visit her without the fear of being violated. Thank you once again Jean for the amazing service.”
In time of transition
Health coach and natural food chef, Brooklyn NY
“I started working with Jean during a very transitional time in my life that was causing emotional and physical stress. I had an immediate positive reaction to each BodyTalk session, I would leave feeling much more at ease, with a sense of clarity and peace that would last. It gave me the ability to be objective, with a greater understanding of how what was going on in my life was interconnected. Jean, made me feel incredibly comfortable and would explain everything in layman's terms that made perfect sense to someone unversed in BodyTalk. I have a greater sense of balance both emotionally and physically.”
