Currently, the general approach to modern health care for animals and humans is undergoing a radical change. There is a paradigm shift afoot in our understanding of dis-ease and how and why it manifests in the human and animals’ living system. The body has an innate ability to heal itself; however, this ability is hindered by many factors, such as, physical, emotional, mental, biochemical, and environmental stressors. The BodyTalk System™ operates out of this new scientific understanding; blending quantum physics with ancient philosophical knowledge to assist the body in remembering how to heal itself. This course provides a comprehensive introduction to BodyTalk Fundamentals for Animals as well as BodyTalk Fundamentals (for humans) for use in clinical settings with animals as the client, and with your own animals as well as sessions with humans.
