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.
It wasn't long before 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 in BodyTalk instructors, classes, and certification opportunities, Angela was able to complete all of the requirements with the International BodyTalk Association to become a Certified BodyTalk Practitioner by Feb, 2013, (including in-person training, testing, and in-person mentoring with a Certified BodyTalk Instructor!!) without ever leaving South Dakota. Angela quickly became a volunteer as the East-River Representative and Vice President of BodyTalk South Dakota, opened her private practice, Awaken BodyTalk in Sioux Falls, and also became an enthusiastic class coordinator for the International BodyTalk Association to continue bringing instructors to teach others in her community as well. With seeming miracle after miracle in her clinic that first year, and getting her first taste of advanced BodyTalk courses with Mary Shields (Mod 3) and Mel Buzek (Mod 4/7), Angela spent the next busy year continuing her clinic practice and intermittently flying out to California and Washington to complete the other core advanced modules with Dr Laura Stuve and Dr Janet Galipo, along with BodyTalk Advanced Integration with Claudia Schembri-Heitmann, and she completed the testing and case study requirements to become an Advanced-Certified BodyTalk Practitioner by Nov, 2015, under mentorship with Claudia Schembri-Heitmann. The next 2 years as an AdvCBP were full of even more startling miracles after miracles and more traveling for continuing advanced BodyTalk education - Body Ecology (the microbiome class) and Evolve Epigenetics for BodyTalkers (both with Dr Laura Stuve), Eastern Medicine (Dr John Veltheim), Practitioner Reflex & Physical Energetics (Dr John Veltheim), The Soul's Journey (Dr John Veltheim), BodyTalk Fascial Energetics (Kerry D'Ambrogio) and BodyTalk Orthopedic Evaluation (Kerry D'Ambrogio). What an incredibly exciting and deeply rewarding ride... Meanwhile, since Angela became the first BodyTalk Practitioner in Sioux Falls (and the only one in a 5-hour radius), there now about 200 people in the Sioux Falls area have taken BodyTalk Access classes, dozens have become practitioners-in-training, and at least 11 are now Certified BodyTalk Practitioners.
In the spring of 2017, Angela and her family visited a 20-year-old sustainability living-demonstration project near Rutledge, Missouri, called Dancing Rabbit Eco-village, and fell in love with the land, the vision, and the surrounding communities. They applied for residency in August and moved there in Sept, 2017. Her BodyTalk clinic in Sioux Falls, SD, continues to be a wellspring of healing and prosperity, now run by Kristi Olander, CBP, Tracy Saboe, CBP, and Peg Bhatara, practitioner-in-training. Angela maintains a busy and deeply rewarding remote-session practice and also provides in-person Advanced BodyTalk Sessions at Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage, with the vision of getting this powerful modality into the hands of the intentional sustainable community sector world-wide. In addition to her 1-on-1 BodyTalk private practice, Angela is currently working on energizing a "BodyTalk Midwest" matrix to revolutionize health care in her new surrounds, studying permaculture design and how it blends with BodyTalk for Plants, and stepping into training to certify as a BodyTalk Access Trainer.
Through Awaken BodyTalk, Angela provides one-on-one Advanced BodyTalk sessions for clients with a wide variety of health concerns. Sessions in-person at Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage take place on the calm of a Richway Amethyst BioMat, and remote sessions are scheduled from the comfort of your own home via phone/skype. Awaken BodyTalk is about honoring the voice of the wisdom within - holding the space for the innate healer within - supporting you 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 as anything from 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, such as anxiety, depression, addictions, challenges with memory, etc, 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 treatments 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 and most leading edge health care 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:
(2) helping to coordinate with BodyTalk instructors to bring opportunities to Sioux Falls and Missouri (BodyTalk Access 3+ times per year, plus Fundamentals and other courses based on requests from students and practitioners)
(3) hosting and facilitating complimentary practice groups for BodyTalk Access graduates (Monthly schedule below of Sioux Falls clinic!) and remote mentoring opportunities for aspiring BodyTalk Practitioners-in-Training
(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 mastering the material taught in the advanced BodyTalk courses and keeping up-to-date with new BodyTalk breakthrough courses
(7) embarking on the path of becoming a BodyTalk Access Trainer.
(8) holding the vision of a global culture of wellness - with one or more BodyTalk Access Technicians in every single household and one or more BodyTalk Practitioners on every single block and in every intentional sustainability-focused community worldwide
