What clients are saying: 


  • " I have had relief from pain that no other health practitioner could pinpoint the source of despite doing tests. The source was at deeper and more subtle levels that only Bodytalk can access so precisely. I always feel more in touch with myself after a session, have immediate pain relief along with the general feeling of lightness." Dianae Weeks, R.N. Saugerties, New York

  • "Our autistic child has made such great progress since you began working with him! He is very interactive. He is trying lots of new foods. He is sleeping very well. He rarely has a "meltdown" now . We feel very blessed that you are an integral part of his health care team.    Marcy Grant, North Dakota
