Angela Johnson first learned about the fascinating health modality of the BodyTalk System in spring of 2011, from a visiting friend, Luke Krueger, who was completing his training to be a practitioner. This BodyTalk Practitioner-In-Training was offering (requesting, really) to perform "practice-sessions" with her and her family members in support of his requirements for certification. She was blown away by the results of these sessions. Blown away! A sore throat feeling better in hours, aching back relieved in minutes, the list goes on. She quickly connected Luke with everyone she knew, who was open to receiving a practice-session as well. There was one time when her younger daughter had been suffering from migraine complete with nausea and vomiting at the time of a "practice-session". The little girl was so miserable she refused to let Luke touch her (much less tap on her), but she did agree to let him tap on Angela - on the other side of the room - as a surrogate for her session. Within 5 minutes of the completion of the session, Angela's daughter's state of being turned completely around - like she just "woke up". She walked to the fridge and happily fixed herself a bowl of yogurt. Within 10 minutes, she was literally swinging from the monkey-bars at the neighboring park as though she'd never missed a beat! This was just one example in a line of nearly a dozen of these "practice-sessions" during his visit where the receiver of the session had an experience like "waking up" in some way or another. Through these BodyTalk experiences, bodies were proving themselves capable of self-healing to a degree (and with a speed) that many have never imagined. Angela was startled to see how symptoms serve as important messages not just dealing with physical causative factors but often coming down from causative factors of the subtle and mental bodies, and the BodyTalk System taps into these factors, literally, as a matter of protocol. A little over one year later, arising from a series of synchronicities in the summer of 2012, Angela fully realized that she was being called to embrace this health modality not just from the standpoint of the awe of receiving and watching others receive sessions but to seek out training opportunities to become a practitioner herself.
Thanks to the fruitful efforts of the volunteer-leaders of the non-profit, BodyTalk South Dakota ( http://www.bodytalksouthdakota.com/ ), who are committed to bringing to our state BodyTalk instructors, classes, and certification opportunities, Angela was able to complete all the requirements with the International BodyTalk Association to become a Certified BodyTalk Practitioner (including in-person training, testing, and in-person mentoring with a Certified BodyTalk Instructor!!) without ever leaving South Dakota in Feb, 2013. Angela now volunteers as the East-River Representative and Vice President of BodyTalk South Dakota, is a class coordinator for the International BodyTalk Association, and is the owner of her private practice, Awaken BodyTalk, in Sioux Falls. In the fall of 2015, she became an Advanced-Certified BodyTalk Practitioner and is also committed to embarking on the path as a BodyTalk Access Trainer. What an incredibly exciting and deeply rewarding ride...
Through Awaken BodyTalk, Angela provides one-on-one BodyTalk sessions for clients with a wide variety of health concerns. Sessions take place on the calm of a Richway Amethyst BioMat. Awaken BodyTalk is about honoring the voice of the wisdom within - holding the space for the innate healer within - supporting clients to "awaken" to a deeper connection with the Self where healing can occur from a place of deep wisdom and compassion on all levels that are a priority in that current moment in time. Using light touch and gentle tapping, the BodyTalk System is safe, effective, truly holistic health care. It can be used as your go-to health care modality for imbalances that manifest from anything to physical pain, a variety of sicknesses, allergies or other immune system challenges, slow-to-heal injuries, or digestive challenges... to any variety of dis-ease at the emotional and/or mental levels. BodyTalk can also be used as complimentary health care alongside any other forms of health care to increase the effectiveness and/or soften the side effects of other health care modalities being utilized. And in the absence of dense physical symptoms, BodyTalk can be used as an amazing "maintenance" program and really a catalyst to awaken even higher states of balance and consciousness within You. (For 1-on-1 treatment pricing, see below.)
Awaken BodyTalk is also about "awakening" others to a new paradigm - a paradigm that challenges previous assumptions about what healing even is, what we as humans are capable of, and why we are here. This paradigm, the BodyTalk System, also known as "The Language of Health", is experiencing an "awakening" of its own. Currently the fastest-growing health modality in the world, it is "awakening" into physical manifestation all across the globe - from one laboratory in Australia in the mid-90's to being taught in 52 countries by 2017. Angela is committed to supporting this awakening as well, by:
(1) offering free BodyTalk educational opportunities twice each month
(2) helping to coordinate with BodyTalk instructors to bring local BodyTalk courses to Sioux Falls and surrounding areas (BodyTalk Access 3+ times per year, plus Fundamentals and other courses based on requests from area members of BodyTalk South Dakota)
(3) hosting and facilitating complimentary practice groups for BodyTalk Access graduates, BodyTalk Practitioners-in-training, and MindScape students (Monthly schedule below!)
(4) supporting the efforts of practitioners of all other health care modalities interested in making the BodyTalk System the core of their practice or interested in incorporating the five BodyTalk Access techniques into their practice to deepen their clients' (and their own!) results
(5) investing in her own journey of receiving BodyTalk sessions herself
(6) keeping her practice state-of-the-art by by mastering the material taught in the advanced BodyTalk courses and keeping up-to-date with new BodyTalk courses
(7) embarking on the path of becoming a BodyTalk Access Trainer.
