New Healing Trend: Body Talk
“I had to get into particularly good shape for it (Black Panther), to be able to do the stunts that they required me to do. The training centred on gaining strength, stamina, and flexibility so I did jujitsu, capoeira and ring blades.” - Lupita Nyong’o on training for Black Panther.
Nadia Lang, a Body Talk and certified Acupuncture practitioner, chats to us about the new healing trend tried out by celebrities like Oprah Winfrey and former President Barack Obama.
WHAT IS BODY TALK?
The belief that the body knows how to heal itself is central to Body Talk but the body, like a computer, can get overloaded, leading to malfunction. No diagnosis or prescription will be offered by a Body Talk practitioner, just a “rewiring” session using muscle testing and light tapping on the head and breastbone to re-establish channels of communication within the body. Then the body will start working at its best again.
WHAT DOES IT ENTAIL?
While there are a few approaches, the method I use is called neuromuscular feedback, to determine the underlying causes of the symptoms. By asking the body’s innate wisdom, using a series of yes or no questions, I can then help the body release what is blocking it from functioning optimally.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
“The body has a natural ability to heal itself and this can help any condition, from headache to mood disorders. I’ve treated people for complaints as varied as phobias, slipped discs, cancer and colds.”
