BodyTalk Energy Medicine

Heron are masters of balance. Health is about dynamic balance, that changes from moment to moment, about learning to be resilient.

Every choice, every experience in your life,  contributes to the state of your health.

Each scar, laugh line and injury has a unique story and history.

Add to that the experiences and choices of your ancestors and you can see how complex health and healing really are.

Based in Energy Medicine, BodyTalk takes into consideration your whole-story. Your life-style, genetics and history are all drawn upon to establish a personalized approach to Healthcare that layer by layer, bring about lasting changes.

What might seem like an obvious problem to you is not necessarily the one your body wants to address first.

During a session, I use my intuition and “muscle checking” to determine the order in which your body wants to be balanced. BodyTalk works “by priority,” rather than by “chasing” problems or focusing on elminating symptoms. “By-priority” sessions help elminate the risk of overwhelming your systems, avoiding what’s commonly known as healing crisis. (Read more here).

Biofeedback

BodyTalk uses a biofeedback technique and a protocol chart (or two for
us PaRama practitioners) to get details on the status of energy circuits in the body, identify and reconnect any weakened or broken circuits. Sessions help re-establish efficient communication, so that your body can de-stress and catch up on its healing process.

Even with the same diagnosis or symptoms no two sessions for any two people are ever alike. Nor are any two sessions for any one person the same. Each session addresses your needs and priorities at that moment, stimulating your body’s natural ability to heal itself, and creating momentum for improved health, well-being and personal growth. (And it works for animals too.)

There are no contraindications with BodyTalk as there is no interaction with ongoing therapies, treatments, or medications. BodyTalk can be used alone or in combination with other treatments. It’s powerful, potent, responsive and deceptively gentle. 

The BodyTalk System

Jenna with BodyTalk Founder, Dr. John Veltheim, 2016.

BodyTalk’s Founder, Dr. John Veltheim, says he set three intentions when he began to develop BodyTalk about twenty years ago. 1) The system would be based on Dynamics Systems Theory. 2) Work human to human (heart to heart), without a focus on the use of “gadgets” (machines) or supplementary products. 3)  Do no harm.

BodyTalk has evolved and continues to evolve based on cutting edge science, including Quantum Physics. The fastest growing healthcare system in the world, classes for  practitioners are offered internationally and online.

I completed most of my course work in Missoula, the San Francisco Bay Area, and over the internet. One of my commitments as a BodyMind Spirit heatlhcare practitioner is to keep learning, staying on the cutting edge of possibility. As a Certified BodyTalk Practitioner, I am required to complete 32 hours of Continuing Education in the BodyTalk System every two years. I’ve completed 151 hours. In total, I’ve taken 49 courses with the International BodyTalk Association, 15 of those in the last two years. (Here’s a more detailed description of my training).

A visit to the International BodyTalk Association website will answer a lot of your questions about how your session will unfold, as will the Bozeman BodyTalk FAQ page.  Have specific questions to ask? Schedule a FREE 15 minute consultation.


I also offer “specialty” sessions that dial in on very particular issues. Those include:

  • Lymphatic Drainage, the Veltheim Method: a highly effective way of moving interstitial fluid through tissues & in to the lymphatic system and is essential to helping improve immune system function.
  • BodyTalk to balance organizational dynamics & for performance, such as athletic competitions. I have decades of business ownership expertise.
  • BodyTalk for Plants
  • BodyTalk for Animals

When we look at trees, we see leaves, usually blowing in the wind. Western medicine looks at the leaf. Energetic medicine looks at the wind, which can’t be put under a microscope. We work with what is immaterial.
