THE IMPORTANCE OF COMMUNICATING WITH YOUR PET
BALANCING OF YOUR PET’S HEALTH

What is Bodytalk for Animals?
BodyTalk Access for Animals techniques can be applied within a clinical setting for licensed veterinarians, vet technicians, shelter workers and other trained professionals. BodyTalk Access for Animals can also be learned by virtually anyone to use with their own animal companions at home. There are five basic BodyTalk for Animals techniques that can be combined into a daily regimen which, when applied, has a significant impact on an animal’s health status.
Originally designed for humans, the BodyTalk System seeks to address the “whole person”. This means that no aspect of the human psyche can be overlooked, be it emotional, physical or environmental. In BodyTalk, we have developed a whole-healthcare system that supports and promotes the wellbeing of any person, animal, or plant.
As WholeHealthcare™, BodyTalk understands the profound influence the psychology of the body has on our health. Instead of focusing on the symptom, BodyTalk finds the underlying causes of illness by addressing the whole-person and their whole-story.
The BodyTalk techniques provide insights to the areas of your body that need attention. What might seem like an obvious problem to you is not necessarily the one your body wants to address first.
This is the beauty of BodyTalk. It respects the body’s own needs and determines your body’s priorities for healing. Then with the use of a variety of non-invasive techniques, BodyTalkers refocus your body’s natural healing response to establish better communication within the body.
The BodyTalk System is a unique health care modality in that it addresses the body in a truly integrative, safe, non-invasive and holistic way. BodyTalk therapy synchronizes the body’s energy systems so they can operate naturally. Resynchronization enables the body to function at optimum levels, preventing disease and rapidly accelerating the healing process.
BodyTalk sessions for animals balance the general bodymind energy of the animal and address emotionally based illnesses typically unaddressed through veterinary care.
BodyTalk is meant to be a COMPLIMENTARY practice to veterinary care and not a replacement, whereas a BodyTalk practitioner does not diagnosis or prescribe.
Animals generally have a natural and strong desire to be healthy and well but domesticated species are easily affected by the stresses of living in human environments. Also, many domesticated animals are pre-disposed to emotional/physical/behavioral issues based on breed. BodyTalk can help facilitate the balancing of an animal’s bodymind complex and address these issues. An animal’s behavior is usually a sign of a deeper imbalance. When a practitioner facilitates deep balance, often behavioral issues are vicariously addressed as well.
Actually, if you really listen, you may be able to hear what some of them are saying…
One century ago in the 1915 trenches of World War I, a young engineer named Hugh Lofting was moved by the sufferings of innocent horses and mules drafted into the horrifying vortex of human destruction. Needing something to say in letters home to his small children, he invented a certain doctor to minister to the beasts. This remarkable man could, Lofting explained to his children, talk with animals.
With new understanding, dolphins, dogs, and other species have already started to be able to subtlety communicate to humans, and we may be able to communicate back, and maybe, some day in a common languages that we create together.
EMOTIONS IN ANIMALS
NEGATIVE EMOTIONS CAN AFFECT THE WELLNESS OF YOUR PETS
When humans get stressed, often their pets take on that stress, too.”Dogs and cats are very good at picking up stress in people, as are birds,” said James Morrisey, a veterinarian at the College of Veterinary Medicine of Cornell University in New York.
“I’ve worked with a parrot who lived with a woman who had a seizure disorder, and the parrot could tell when she was about to have a seizure and warn her.”

In addition to carrying the burdens of people, animals — especially wild creatures — have plenty of their own to stress about. Animals will even seek out “comfort food” when they’re all wigged out. And stress in animals, as with humans, can be a good or a bad thing.
Animals experience stress for a variety of reasons – A 2004 study of stress-related illness in cats found that the biggest source of stress for domestic cats is unfriendly relationships with other cats in the house. And a 2006 study found that dogs in shelters get majorly stressed out by the excessive barking of the other dogs there.
THE HEALTH EFFECT DUE TO STRESS IN ANIMALS
What’s more, the effects of stress on an animal’s body are stunningly similar to stress’s effects on humans.
In both humans and animals, stress causes the body to release adrenaline and cortisol hormones. These chemicals cause heart rate and respiration to speed up, and suppress the immune system. Stress also clamps down on the reproductive system, reducing libido and reproductive hormones, which ultimately increases the risk for cardiovascular disease.
All these all-too-human effects have also been measured in animals.
HAPPY YOU. HEALTHY PETS
EMBRACE THE POWER OF TRUE HAPPINESS
Being healthy can make a person happy, but happiness itself may also lead to better health, according to a new study. Researchers found that people who enjoy life tend to maintain better physical function than those who don’t in daily activities as they age. And when you are happy and live long, so does your pet. This is why the ability to communicate to your pet, especially in times of injuries, enable your pet to heal better and faster.
YOUR CONNECTION WITH YOUR PET
EMBRACE THE POWER OF THE MIND
Animals are powerful conduits of unconditional love. You would be amazed as to how much your dog absorbs from you and the family. They are so in tune to you and look up to you. We surely don’t give them enough credit ever. Actually our dogs can sense things before we do. Dogs can sense anger, sadness, if you are depressed, and all your emotions just by your tone of voice and by your body language. When there is anger and anxiety, most times they will retreat and/or hide away somewhere as though they are in fear. They have very sharp senses and very fine tuned hearing. We may not think so when they seem to “ignore us” at times when calling them. That is called “selective hearing”. They have good hearing. So Bodytalk addresses issues between the family and your pet. By following a comprehensive protocol of questions, the BodyTalk practitioner can establish exactly what balancing the body needs in order to harmonize bodymind function. This involves finding out which organs, endocrines, or body parts need to be connected to heal communication between them at the physiological, biochemical, circulatory, nervous, emotional and/or energy levels.
