The BodyTalk system was developed in 1995 by John Veltheim, an Australian chiropractor and acupuncturist who also studied bioenergetic therapy, applied kinesiology, sports medicine, osteopathy and philosophy.


Our body is a complex system with a delicate balance between physiological and biochemical functions, emotional and mental interactions, environmental influences, hereditary conditions and genetic factors. The balance between all these elements may eventually be disturbed by various physical or emotional causes. BodyTalk improves health by eliminating distortions and optimizing the internal communication of the body.

How does BodyTalk work?

The BodyTalk system uses a muscle tension test to communicate with the body. The test results provide a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answer to every question asked. The innate, physiological knowledge of the body gives the practitioner instructions for creating or maintaining optimal health of body and mind.

Using a comprehensive protocol, the practitioner can determine how to balance the body and mind by linking organs, endocrines and other body parts to restore communication with each other.
