BodyTalk In-Person or Online Sessions

BodyTalk is a process that combines principles from many healing modalities, both ancient and new, into an integrated form that works with our own body’s healing mechanisms. These principles include acupuncture, Chinese medicine, yoga, kinesiology, psychology, physiology and Energy Medicine, to name a few.

BodyTalk is a process that combines principles from many healing modalities, both ancient and new, into an integrated form that works with our own body’s healing mechanisms. These principles include acupuncture, Chinese medicine, yoga, kinesiology, psychology, physiology and Energy Medicine, to name a few.

Our body already knows how to heal itself, however, our lives tend to be very stressful and we tend to reach a tipping point where we no longer have the resources for our bodies to rejuvenate and heal. Stress (or the stories of our lives) causes the nervous system to switch into ‘high alert’ mode. This is a healthy response, at first. However, our body needs time to rest and recover and without this, miscommunication within the Body/Mind can occur, and can develop into illness and disease if not dealt with.

BodyTalk helps the body to recover from stress by recognizing the areas of the body/mind that need to be focused upon first. These may be physical, emotional, and/or mental in nature. For example, areas in our body where we hold our emotions, patterns in our behavior that are limiting our potential, physical aches and pains, thought patterns that affect decision making, or past experiences that we can’t let go of, can be sources of stress. Once these areas are perceived, gentle techniques are implemented to highlight areas where there is a lack of communication. This focuses the nervous system and immune system to bring the Body/Mind out of emergency mode so that natural healing processes can resume. When your body communicates, it can heal itself! BodyTalk facilitates this process, enabling lasting patterns of good health.

These distance sessions are conducted remotely without you or your child actively present. If you would like a video session please book an online session or you can book this option and specify you would like it over the phone. Most clients prefer the convenience of receiving either an emailed audio file summarizing what was treated to listen to at own convenience or a follow-up phone call. This is the preferred way of treating children as we do not have to disrupt their day or even involve them in the process at all. Children 10+ depending on their maturity and openness to address their problems could benefit from an in-person session and the ability to talk about their problems. Distance sessions are just as effective as in person. So it's a great convenience! As BodyTalk tells us what needs to be addressed and the client doesn’t need to provide Joanne with any information about them, it is a great way of treating anyone who doesn’t want to open up and talk. In many ways, as we talk to the un/subconscious mind it often seems like Joanne is psychic revealing things you may have never told anyone or unconscious fears & limiting beliefs that have been holding you back. With this process little to no information is needed about a client prior to the session. Please specify on your distance booking if you want to do it actively or have an audio summary emailed and if it is a multi-person booking who is being treated.

Welcome to a proven method for alleviating the pain, fear and frustration that comes with bedtime parenting.

I help parents experience greater confidence, increased satisfaction in their relationships, and a deepened bond with their child. We will not get your child sleeping through the night at any cost, but we will get you all sleeping better, feeling happier and experiencing greater peace overall.

I teach the science behind infant/maternal sleep and with this information, I help you to develop the tools needed to create balance around those facts to get sleep for the whole family. I hold space for mothers and partners to follow their instincts when it comes to their new baby, to encourage attachment which sets the stage for optimal brain development. I bring a tear-free approach to helping new (and not so new) parents find sleep solutions they can feel good about..

Group Distance Session Series

Receiving BodyTalk as part of a group is a cost-effective way to receive treatment for common areas of concern. The more people becoming conscious of what needs to be addressed the more powerful it is. Registration for the 'class' will be access to recorded treatments done with the whole group as focus on a predetermined day of treatment.

A BodyTalk practitioner since 2014, Joanne loves how BodyTalk works to address the whole person physically, emotional, spiritually and energetically. BodyTalk takes into account all aspects of the person; their environment, emotions and belief systems and helps the body to release them so physical and emotional health can be restored. With Joanne’s passion for all things baby she quickly discovered how BodyTalk can help with fertility, pregnancy, birth and baby.

Joanne experienced the benefits of prenatal BodyTalk & Yoga herself and the tools it provided to aid in natural birth. Joanne was blessed with the amazing experience of a home water births with both her sons in 2012 and 2017. She continues to witness how BodyTalk helps her family adapt with the second addition and stress it took on the eldest and well as keeping everyone healthy and happy.
