When I think of stress, here are a few letters that spring to mind – P.M.S., J.O.B., and my personal favorite, M.E.N. In today’s economy, stress can form in a number of ways and once you’ve graduated the eighth grade, it tends to show up more than just once a month landing almost everywhere! Either it’s written all over your face (and eventually will leave the lines to prove it) or it’s taking a major toll on your body causing anything from extreme body pain to rapid weight gain. Well, for those of you who are looking for the ultimate way to relieve your daily stress without the expenses of hiring a personal trainer or chiropractor, certified Body Talk practitioner, Leslie Nanson introduces the next best thing – and you don’t even have to leave your home to get it!

Certified Body Talk Practitioner, Leslie Nanson – “A human GPS to your soul”

The Body Talk System:

Body Talk is the newest form of healthcare sweeping the east coast. Practiced in countries around the world, Body Talk incorporates acupuncture, osteopathic and chiropractic philosophy, as well as the insights of modern physics and mathematics. Through exposure to stresses of day-to-day life, your body’s energy systems can become compromised and can lead to a decline in physical, emotional, and mental health. “Your body is a self-healing mechanism”, says Nanson. It acts almost as an electric circuit board. When one fuse blows, the entire body becomes out of “wack” and simply needs to be reset.

How does it work?

“Body Talk can be done in person or in the form of a distant session using a mindscape technique that allows me to tap into any energy blueprint”, says Nanson. During a Body Talk session, a series of yes and no questions are asked using neuromuscular feedback, which for those of you who failed Biology class (myself included) basically means your body has an innate wisdom that can detect what is off balance. “Through this testing procedure I can hold the areas that have been highlighted and address them by tapping gently on the head and the sternum,” Nanson says. By tapping on the head, the brain becomes aware of what is off balance. By tapping on the sternum, a.k.a. the heart, it ensures that the new information is stored throughout the whole body in order to prevent future imbalances–almost like saving memory to a computer. In fact, in more advanced forms of Body Talk, formulas can be programmed into the body so that it continues to heal itself once the session is complete!

Can Body Talk be used as a form of medication?

“Body Talk can be used as a standalone system to address many health problems in addition to stress and body pain, such as arthritis, digestive disorders, emotional disorders, and even learning disorders,” says Nanson. However, it does not diagnose or treat specific ailments and is best when used in conjunction with other forms of healthcare. Regular follow-up is also recommended to increase effectiveness and promote faster healing. Nanson also offers classes on various techniques through Body Access – right within the comfort of your own home.

First Body Talk Consult and Session: $155.00
Follow-up Session: $125.00
Body Access: $150.00 for the day–per person (minimum of ten people)

So whether it’s that time of the month–you are seriously plotting to kill your boss–or you are on the verge of swearing off men forever—close your eyes, take out your GPS, type in B-O-D-Y-T-A-L-K, sit back, relax, and enjoy the results!
