BodyTalk for Animals – Prerequisite: BodyTalk Fundamentals and BodyTalk Principles of Consciousness

BodyTalk Access for Animals provides the layperson and professional with a simple set of energy based techniques.

  • Exposure to daily stress can lead to disease and malfunctioning within an animal’s body.
  • Healing occurs when inner systems in the body communicate, synchronize and balance.
  • BodyTalk for Animals can be performed on domestic animals.
  • Distance sessions may be done on wild animals.

Structural Integration for BodyTalkers
(Prerequisites)   Designed to combine concepts of advanced structural body work and BodyTalk philosophy, you are provided with a powerful tool to reorganize the bodies’ posture, movement patterns and emotional/spiritual holding patterns.

Under chronic emotional or physical stress the body compensates in the liquid crystal matrix – the Fascial system – responsible for communication, movement, projection and protection. The result is more lasting and powerful sessions for clients when they do not always feel the energetic shifts in their bodymind!  (32 CEUs practitioner requirements)
