- "I came across BodyTalk in 1999 while trying to integrate the work I did with the body and the work I did with the mind. I knew there was no separation, but had no concrete idea as to how to do what intuitively was calling me to do. Then, I walked into my first class with Dr. John Veltheim and I saw that he brought all levels of consciousness; body, mind together into one system!
My trainings in the U.S. in Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Accupressure and Shiatsu came after years of living in Europe, Asia and Africa where I informally studied in China with Chinese Medicine doctors, Tai Qi and Qi Gong Masters and Healing Baba's and Mystics in India, Nepal and Africa. At that time, I felt my "body" work would be confined to what we learned in the US; to treat the affected muscle or tendon or energy pattern. Yet I knew there was more to understand.
My studies later took me to the level of human psychology, even though I had practiced intensive classical meditation in India and the U.S., I earned a Masters degree in Clinical Psychology, studied Process Oriented Psychology, Cognitive Therapy, Group Dynamics, Psychodrama, Neuro-Lingusitic Programming and Paradox Management. These studies were useful yet frustrating as I was not addressing the body, while working with the mind and vice versa.
In 1999, it became obvious that Dr. Veltheim had integrated at a very deep level of consciousness, the workings of both the body and mind. The bridge between the two worlds that had seemed separate were now not only joined but intertwined. The training goes on with Dr. Veltheim as we discover and uncover the latest findings of Quantum Physics, and the ancient teachings of the mystics.
Not only am I a teacher and practitioner of BodyTalk, but I am also a client of BodyTalk. Over the years, the limp I had coming from my right hip has disappeared. My blood sugar levels are normal, my sciatic pain is gone, my cholesterol levels remain good, my relationship to my life and work is positive and enthusiastic after having experienced profound personal loss and illness. I teach BodyTalk and use BodyTalk as a modality because it works!

What students say:
"Your experience in teaching shows! You are inspirational!" Thank you for sharing your wisdom! "Suryo, You fully embody BodyTalk"!.
" When I attended the Access training, I was shocked at how well the system worked when Suryo worked on me! I had suffered from pain in my gall bladder and T2 vertebrae in my neck for a number of years. I had never put this down to the timing of birth of my last child 7 1/2 years ago. Suryo found this to be the case and the timing of when the pains started was very much the same. She worked on these two issues and I have not felt even a twinge since. Now I am extremely keen to become a practitioner myself!"
