New Heal­ing Trend: Body Talk

True Love - - SEX -

“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.”
