Melody Hiebert, a Certified BodyTalk Practitioner and member of the
International BodyTalk Association, began studying BodyTalk in November 2003. She has been a licensed Massage Therapist since 1999,
having received an Award of Distinction for her contribution to a thesis on the
ERS and FRS of the Lumbar Spine.
She has attended courses in complementary therapies that include
BodyTalk, Breakthrough, Massage Therapy, Craniosacral Therapy, Healing Touch,
Somato Emotional Release, Access Consciousness, Lymphatic
Drainage, and Myofascial Release. The beauty of BodyTalk is that it can
combine the benefits from any of the various modalities into a
She has been drawn specifically to BodyTalk due to its logical and
holistic approach - using non-invasive procedures which incorporate the many
aspects that affect a person’s well-being – the physical, emotional, energetic,
and spiritual. She is excited about the fact that BodyTalk can
address multiple health-affecting factors in one session, and sometimes specify
that other healing modalities are required. BodyTalk offers the
incredible potential for obtaining results that are highly-effective and long-lasting.
love that each session is customized to the individual, as they are at that
specific moment in time. As each person and their personal experiences
are unique, so is the unfolding of their own healing and self-development."

been sleeping great
since she returned home. She is not congested at
all now (having stopped using a laundry additive which a BodyTalk session
identified as an issue). She did not experience the usual stiffness when
she returned home after 5 hrs of travel (she usually is stiff and has
difficulty getting out of the vehicle). She was able to do 3 hrs of
raking with less fatigue and pain, and now has the energy to
do multiple errands at a time whereas she used to get tired and return home
after just one errand.
(9 yrs old) was having difficulty sleeping, waking
up at any noise. He was combative with
his sister 80% of the time, and angered and saddened easily.
Through the BodyTalk sessions, we discovered that he had a fear of the dark and
anger at his sister for having woken him up at night when she cried as a
baby. Since his treatments, he sleeps through the night and his
relationship with his sister has vastly improved (they get along 80% of the
time and play together!). He is far more positive and grades are
improving in school as he no longer experiences problems with concentration.
Bruce had chronic sinus
problems, calcium buildup resulting in significant restrictions in the
neck, and headaches.
and lower back pain associated with an imbalanced pelvis. After his first
BodyTalk session he found that his sinuses have started to clear, his ability
to rotate his neck has significantly improved, and he has experienced no
headaches or back pain. He indicates that during a following
massage treatment, the massage therapist commented that the
imbalanced rotation of his pelvis has almost disappeared.
the Siamese Cat was significantly dehydrated,
and according to Lynn, she had never seen him drinking fluids. Frank
had been abandoned, and was later adopted by Lynn. In the many months
since she began feeding Frank, she had never seen him drink anything.
After a 5-10 minute BodyTalk session, Frank was very playful. And the next day,
Lynn reported that she was surprised to see him drinking water! He also
began demonstrating more affection towards
Lynn, and following her around.
BodyTalk session for Jan H indicated that she had experienced
much kicking and discomfort from her son while carrying him in
pregnancy. She confirmed this, indicating that at the same time as
finding it irritating, if she wasn’t feeling his kicking, she became very
concerned about his well-being. As a young child now, she found that
her son was often acting up with specific intent to irritate
her. The BodyTalk session addressed Jan’s need to be irritated to
know he was ok, and her son’s belief that he needed to fulfil that need. Having
completed the follow-up discussion with her young son, as was indicated by the
BodyTalk session, Jan finds that the intentional acting-up is
greatly reduced. She, herself, has also experienced reduced muscle
tightness in the pelvic region.
