We have highlighted below a few of our featured news items which illustrate the impact that the IBA and its programs are having around the world.
I recently did an interview on the Learn True Health Podcast with Ashley James. It is an excellent interview in
which I was able to discuss many of the basic principles of BodyTalk. We had such a great time that we talked for
two and a half hours, so the interview had to be split into two parts. If you are new to BodyTalk, these interviews
are a great educational tool. If you have been around a while, they are a great refresher. Please enjoy them and share.
Ashley James is an entrepreneur, coach and podcaster. Her podcast is called Learn True Health with Ashley James where she interviews holistic health experts and doctors of Naturopathic medicine 3 days a week.
Through the interviews, her expert guests teach listeners how to gain health naturally through holistic medicine, diet, supplemental nutrition and lifestyle changes.

Disclaimer: In this interview, John Veltheim states that BodyTalk is a recognized healthcare modality in France and Australia. This is not entirely accurate.
In France, BodyTalk is officially recognized as a practice under "non-conventional healthcare activities" meaning practicing BodyTalk is legal.
It is not recognized as an official healthcare modality, meaning it is not covered by healthcare programs.
In Australia, a BodyTalk training course was acknowledged as an accredited program with the federal government, however this program and its recognition expired in 2018.
Natural therapy recognition is in the process of being changed by the Australian government and will be very different after April 2019.
It's finally here! The highly anticipated new BodyTalk book by John Veltheim. The Science & Philosophy of
BodyTalk Book will be a great addition to your practice and personal library.
The chapters of this book will take you on a journey of exploration into how The BodyTalk System works
from a practical and scientific perspective, along with the philosophies behind the System and its
techniques. The book also includes a scientific explanation by James Oschman, Ph.D.

BodyTalk is a young modality, less than twenty years old, and although there are many practitioners around the world,
it is still relatively unknown to the general public.
At first it appears relatively complex but at the same time, unforgivingly simple. I remember my first session as a
client and trying to hold back a smirk as the practitioner tapped away on my head. When I woke up the next morning
with my chronic throat congestion issue completely eradicated, the joke was clearly on me.
If you were to dive deep into your body, like an episode of CSI, you would find what appears to be an
entire nation of systems and cells working tirelessly in industry and productivity. Billions of
interconnections make up this well-oiled machine. You would see chemical production plants, refineries,
power plants and the most incredibly sophisticated waste management system. As a student of anatomy, I
have always been fascinated by the intricacies of the lymphatic system.
