BodyTalk Fundamentals – Part 1

Course Overview:
Currently, the general approach to modern health care is undergoing a radical change. There is a paradigm shift afoot in our understanding of dis-ease and how and why it manifests in the human living system. The body has an innate ability to heal itself; however, this ability is hindered by many factors such as physical, emotional, mental, biochemical, and environmental stressors. The BodyTalk SystemTM operates out of this new scientific understanding; blending quantum physics with ancient philosophical knowledge to assist the body in remembering how to heal itself.

Course Description
The BodyTalk Fundamentals course provides a comprehensive introduction to the BodyTalk SystemTM and presents many powerful consciousness-based healing techniques that address a wide variety of symptoms on all levels of the body and mind. This course presents discussions on both scientific and philosophical aspects of health, as well as a hands-on practical application of the BodyTalk Fundamentals techniques.

BodyTalk Fundamentals introduces the key elements of dis-ease manifestation that are often not included in other health care practices. The innovative yet simple techniques taught in this Fundamentals course are designed to effectively reveal the “root causes” of a wide variety of health conditions.
Along with the BodyTalk Fundamentals text book, the course is comprised of classroom work that blends lectures, demonstrations, and hands on practical experience.
Students will first learn the consciousness-based scientific principles, along with the theory behind The BodyTalk SystemTM including: our innate wisdom and how to use it during the sessions, how to engage your intuition in a structured way, the importance of communication in the body, using muscle checking and a structured protocol to discern areas of the body and mind that are a priority to balance, and much more. This will then lead into learning all of the basic BodyTalk techniques and how to apply them in a BodyTalk session.

Taryn runs a very successful practice in Mt Edgecombe. Here one experience’s beauty, tranquility and the gentle balancing of body and mind. BodyTalk Balancings offer one the opportunity to address specific diseases and disorders, as well as maintenance and prevention sessions aimed at keeping you in optimum health. Taryn is available for distant sessions from anywhere in the world.

She hears the praises of the The BodyTalk System on a regular basis from clients experiencing sessions:


PAINFUL SHOULDER – Ashni had not been able to pour water from her kettle for a month. She had a painful shoulder, with obvious limited range of motion. Her body’s innate indicated that we balance her shoulder to hip, and release an emotion of fear of responsibility from the right shoulder joint. She had immediate full range of motion back, with no sense of pain or discomfort left, BodyTalk is simply the best!

ADD – A psychologist, who is hugely impressed with BodyTalk, referred Chantal’s son of 9yrs old to me. His mom says, “His behavior was a problem at school, he was always getting into trouble, he couldn’t concentrate properly and his handwriting and work was like a dog’s breakfast, very untidy. His teacher phoned me wanting to find out the story; she had even shared with the principal that he was like a DIFFERENT CHILD. I told her that I was taking him for BodyTalk sessions (two at that stage). THE TEACHER COULDN’T BELIEVE HOW HE HAD CHANGED. He was now taking pride in his work which was now so neat. Before he was not interested and didn’t care. His maths test marks had improved remarkably, from getting 2/40 he was now getting 27/30. And he no longer brings notes home for misbehaving.” Chantal

ANGER – “I am just calling to say a big thank you for what you did for my husband. He says he is REALLY feeling revitalised after his session with you. Years of his DESTRUCTIVE ANGER and lashing out with CRITICAL COMMENTS seemed to VANISH OVERNIGHT with one session of BodyTalk. He is LESS REACTIVE and DEFENSIVE. It has produced such a significant change in him. I used to wait for the three-weekly cycle of even-tempered happiness followed by thunderous growls and withdrawal for a week. It is going to be wonderful to see what happens in the long term. He is looking forward to his next session and recommends BodyTalk to friends.” Mr D.H.

DEPRESSION AND ANXIETY – “For two years I had suffered from anxiety, social phobia, panic attacks and depression. After my first session I felt like I was on such a high. I had a meeting that evening and PEOPLE WERE ACTUALLY COMING UP TO ME AND ASKING ME WHAT HAD HAPPENED, that I was smiling and joyful. The best thing you did for me was to open up my self love.” Ms. L.S. 55 yrs

PAIN – “For 2-3 weeks I had a sore on my foot. It was painful and uncomfortable to walk on. In the treatment I could actually feel something happening around it. During the treatment, the PAIN DISAPPEARED TOTALLY. I only mentioned this to Taryn upon my second visit as I never thought miracles like that happened. It was quite amazing.” Rudi, 53yrs

PMS (Period Pain, Anger, Irritability. “My life was a living hell.”) – “Its been five months and I haven’t needed to take painkillers for period pain. It used to be unbearable. All my moody, irritable and anger filled pre-menstrual symptoms are also a thing of the past. I have my energy and my life back. I HAVE TRIED COUNTLESS OTHER THERAPIES over the years, and NOTHING COMES CLOSE TO BEING AS EFFECTIVE AS BODYTALK. It is really incredible.” Miss P.N. 21yrs
