My first introduction with BodyTalk was through word of mouth from a friend that had just experienced a session.  My three year old daughter was booked in for surgery to get her tonsils and adenoids removed and I was searching for alternatives to surgery.  After researching BodyTalk I felt I had nothing to lose by giving it a go.


I booked a session with a Practitioner in Perth in September 2009 and took my daughter along for the session.  I sat through the session amazed at what I was told was causing  my daughters Tonsils and Adenoids to be enlarged.  I remember thinking "I need to come for sessions myself.  In fact the whole family would benifit from BodyTalk".  My daughter responded very quickly to the treatment and after a couple of sessions I took her back to her GP that I originally got the referral to the ENT from.  After inspecting her Tonsils he reported that they appeared half the size they originally were and asked what we had done.  I told him and he arranged for us to put the surgery of for 6 months and see how I got on with the alternative therapies as they were definately working.  Well, we never did go and get those Tonsils and Adenoids out.   Prior to BodyTalk treatment she would would make a very load snort/snoring noise (while awake), often choked on food and her Tonsils were huge. BodyTalk revealed the underlying causes of her symptoms and then stimulated her body's natural ability to heal itself.


After a couple of sessions for my daughter I booked myself in with the same BodyTalk Practitioner.  I was far from well.  I had a whole page of symptoms that I took with me to that first session.  Adrenal Exhaustion, Chronic Sinusitis, Food Allergies and Intolerances, Depression, Hormonal Problems, Nausea, Insomnia, and a whole lot of other symptoms.  With two young children and the older one with Allergies and Intolerances to gluten, dairy, egg, flavour, colour, preservatives and additives my life was stressful.  If he ate something he  reacted too I would have a horrific time of emotions and behaviour with him for a whole week.  I was not coping and reacted emotionally to almost every aspect of my life.


After my first session I could not believe how much better I felt.  I felt calmer, happier, less stressed, less burdened and I wasnt reacting to everything and everyone around me.  I continued with sessions and within a few weeks almost all my symptoms had gone.  All I had to do was turn up to a session, nothing else, no tablets etc.


I remember thinking "I am going to study BodyTalk!"  There was no question in my mind that this was what I needed to do.  Even if I didnt become a Practitioner I most certainly would use it for my family.  The first course (BodyTalk Access) I attended was in January 2010.  This course teaches you five techniques that can be used on yourself and family on a daily basis to improve overall health (not practitioner level).  I was so excited to have some tools to use to help my little family.  I remember the first time my son reacted to egg after I had studied Access.  I used what I had been taught in that one day class to treat him while he was reacting and within a few minutes of finishing the Body Chemistry Technique he fell into a deep sleep (the body often needs sleep to help the healing process).  To this day he has not reacted to egg since. You can imagine my excitement that I was able to help him!!  Along with sessions from the Practitioner and what I could do with Access we cleared all off my sons allergies and our household was able to return to a normal diet.


With much excitment I booked to do the BodyTalk Fundamentals 1 & 2 Seminar that was happening in Perth in March 2010.  About a week before the course I found I was Pregnant with baby number three.  How was I goind to do a course and study and try to certify with Morning Sickness???  I had shocking morning sickness with my other children.  Well, I think I was just so sure that this was so what I needed to do that I had the sheer determination that drove me.  I knew that if I wanted to do the exam to become a Certified BodyTalk Practitioner, I would need to be ready to do my exam the beginning of July, otherwise the next time an Instructor would be available was going to be November... my baby would be maybe two weeks old.  I couldn't see how the latter would work.  So with sheer determination I studied everyday, along with Morning Sickness or All Day SIckness!!  In about 14 weeks from doing the course I sat my exam and passed 98% written and 96% practical.  Hurray!!


BodyTalk sessions were amazing for my pregnancy and morning sickness.  I could be feeling really horrid and have a session and the results were amazing.  The morning sickness would literally just leave me and I could cope for a couple of weeks at a time after a session.  I had regular sessions from my Practitioner and also did sessions on myself and at times my baby also received sessions if needed via my sessions.  At 34 weeks the baby was still in breech position and with my Doctor warning me that if it didnt go head down I would be having a Caesarean.  I booked in for a session with my Practitioner and she told me while balancing me that the was not turning due to my fear relating to previous births.  In that session I had several fears balanced and was told that my baby would turn in 3 days.  That's exactly what happened!! I also used BodyTalk for the birth and had a 5 1/2 hour labour instead of 14 hours with my previous children.


When my little boy was 6 months old I started my BodyTalk Practice from home one day a week in Serpentine.  I quickly gained clients from word of mouth around the area.  


In November 2012 changes came with my husbands work which meant we needed to move into Rockingham.  At this point I shifted my Practice into a Clinic and worked from two clinics around Rockingham and Secret Harbour.  In July 2013 we shifted from WA to Dalby, Queensland for family and work reasons.  Unfortunately that meant leaving all my lovely clients behind.  Within a few months of the shift I quickly re-established a clientelle in Dalby along with Co-ordinating BodyTalk classes.


BodyTalk results with clients continues to amaze me each time I work with a client whether its a baby, a child, or even myself.  We dont have to be unwell to enjoy the benefits of BodyTalk either, its relaxing, nurturing and helps us keep on keeping on....


I continue to attend BodyTalk Modules and have interests in Neuroscience, Reflexology, Intergrating Primitive Reflexes, Learning Difficulties, Food Allergies/Intolerances, and Depression.  My clientelle regularly consists of babies and young children often with Learning Difficulties (Dyslexic, ADHD/ADD, Autism) Sensory sensitive (taste, touch, smell, hearing, sight), Emotional Disorders, Bedwetting, nightmares) and many of these have had difficult births.  These children have had some fantastic changes in how they cope and their learning has improved dramatically, and teachers reporting postitive change.  I have sucessfully worked with Adults who have struggled with being Suicidal, Depressed, Addictions, Overweight, Fears of heights, scars, head traumas, epilepsy, urinary problems and many other symptoms of inbalance.


I look forward to helping you and your family on your journey to health and happiness.
