“I first became introduced to the Body Talk system in 2011 and quickly earned my certification in 2012. I became intrigued in the holistic/energetic nature of the human body that I find is too often neglected in our healthcare system. I was fascinated by the simplicity and efficiency of Body Talk and of how powerful balancing out the body-mind complex can be in addressing many health related issues. It never ceases to amaze me how quickly the body can heal itself when all the systems are balanced and are in sync with one another.”
