Wenda Merz is a physical therapist, certified Body Talk practitioner, registered Bowen therapist and Reiki practitioner. Since 1977, she has had a pediatric focus in the field of physical therapy. Wenda is a member of the Neuro Developmental Association (NDTA) and works with many premature infants and children with various neurologic conditions, such as cerebral palsy. She has also treated a variety of orthopedic conditions pediatric to adult, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, and chronic pain conditions. Wenda’s belief in interconnectedness between physical health issues and mental, emotional, and spiritual wellness so evident in but not limited to the family system led her to attain a Master Degree in counseling psychology. This didn’t satisfy her desire to heal the “total body mind system,” and she searched for other methods in various areas. In 2000, Wenda became acquainted with energy medicine and found this to be the missing link she had been searching for. She became a Bowen therapist, Reiki Master and then finally in 2001 a Body Talk practitioner. She feels the Body Talk System coordinates all of the systems of the body and allows the individual’s innate wisdom to take charge of its own healing, with the practitioner only being the facilitator of the body’s priorities. Healing is directed back to the inner source of each client and the individual is able to experience their own healing power from within.
Wenda was fortunate to receive all advanced training under the Founder of the Body Talk System, John Veltheim, and is currently in the Parama college for further advanced studies. Wenda is the owner of Progressive Therapy Clinic where she practices in
