BodyTalk Case Study Results

We conducted a case study evaluation of 18 children aged 2 to 4 through bi-weekly BodyTalk distance sessions over the duration of 12 weeks, January to March, 2017.
The purpose of this case study was to show how effective distance BodyTalk sessions are. BodyTalk is a fairly unknown modality and distance work is even less understood and carries high levels of skepticism.
BodyTalk identifies stress and interfering factors which can cause the communication breakdowns, resulting in symptoms, pain, and disease by asking yes/no questions of the un/subconscious body-mind. By uncovering the root causes of imbalances, we can restore communication, helping the body to heal itself.
BodyTalk is based in quantum physics, an understanding that the universe and everything in it contains the information of the whole. Each and every electron must know exactly what every other electron in the universe is doing in order to know what it, itself, has to do at a given moment. All distant events are constantly interconnected and interdependent. When something shifts somewhere, then all the other elements making up the web of reality must respond and shift also. In distance sessions, the practitioner experiences the shift in one place, which is also experienced by the client somewhere else.
In our study, we treated the children purely by distance with no inconvenience to the child’s or parents’ schedule. The treatments were conducted and an audio summary of what was addressed was emailed to the parents to review.
We conducted an initial intake survey of 57 questions on all areas of well-being—physical issues, sleep issues, behaviour, co-operation, fears, attachment, and self regulation. We treated children with major physical issues, but also more general issues like speech delay, eczema, allergies, anxiety, sleep issues, and anger.
The children received 6 sessions over 12 weeks, and then we had the parents re-answer the same 57 questions to note improvement as well as written feedback on the changes noticed.

We are so pleased to share that ALL participants in the study saw an improvement in at least one area of concern, and the parents were exceptionally happy and no longer skeptical. Given our outcomes, we find it safe to conclude that we have undoubtedly proven that distance BodyTalk sessions are very effective for a wide range of issues.
A Brief Overview of a Few of Our Cases and Parental Feedback
“Most of her struggles seemed to disappear after the first session (no more night terrors, hour-long fits, sleep deprivation). As she had her 2nd and 3rd sessions, her speech became perfect, her hyperactivity almost disappeared, and she became a calm, easy child to care for. Now, after 6 sessions, she is quite an adaptable, flexible child. Change doesn’t seem to upset or even phase her.”
“Last fall she had 6 seizures over 2 months each of which caused her oxygen deprivation and increasing neurological issues. She has been grand mal-, petit mal-, and headache-free and been able to make physical rehab progress. She can also self regulate her behaviour...”
“Our second child with epilepsy has also been seizure free!”
“Our child with a form of cerebral palsy, age 2, was just starting to crawl. The minor chakra of her feet come up in a session and its attribute of ‘taking a stand for oneself.’ Immediately following the treatment, she began pulling herself up and standing and now attempts to ‘cruise the furniture’ and walk with assistance.”
“We had 3 boys with fluid build-up issues, low immunity, chronically ill since birth, and related delays in speech development. All 3 reported dramatic improvements in overall health and reduction in illness and speech.”
“Since C’s first treatment two weeks ago, he has improved his vocabulary by 300%. He had very few words prior—mommy, daddy, no, baby. On the afternoon of your first treatment, he asked me for an ‘apple’ and later that evening asked me for ‘honey.’ He had never said much beyond grunts and finger pointing prior and certainly had never asked for anything besides my husband or I by name. I hadn’t yet listened to your email so didn’t even know anything was different. Since then he has about 20+ new words and will now TRY to repeat you even if he doesn’t get the sound perfectly.” And post-study, “While C’s main concern of tonsil-size did not change, every other concern we had over his health did! His lymphatic system is working better than ever—he no longer has extra fluid in his scrotum (which aided in avoiding surgery!), his ears have drained and no longer hold fluid (which also helped avoid surgery!), he’s talking more than ever and his digestion is better!”
“E had been very sick for months this winter and was basically non verbal. After just a few sessions he was better and stayed healthy for the remainder of the winter. His vocabulary also expanded 10 fold.”
“D hasn’t been sick since December which is amazing considering we were in emerge once a month for his whole life. He is going down the stairs unassisted which is unusual and falling less.”
These are just a sampling of the cases and the dramatic improvements that were made. Visit jyyoga.ca for full case details, statistical analysis, and parental feedback. Or contact Joanne or Sharon to set up a distance session and try it for yourself.
