Online or Distance Remote Sessions
Benefits of Live Online Skype/Zoom and Distance Remote Sessions:
Remote sessions, also known as long distance sessions, are conducted similarly to in-person sessions and afford many benefits. They afford accessibility to everyone during these Covid times, (removing any stressors of attending an in person session with protocols, rules, distancing and hygiene risks, etc). It also reduces the need for travel, especially for those who are physically too unwell to travel, small children, animals or for those further away. Remote sessions also allow for national and world-wide access.
The client is able to relax during the comforts of their own home while the session is being completed. For online Skype/Zoom sessions these happen live with you, whereas for a Distance session this is completed without the person there, then the result of the session is then emailed, which contains a voice recorded summary to listen to. Remote session results are often noted by clients to be just as powerful as in person sessions.
How Skype/Zoom and Distance Remote Sessions Work:
Remote sessions work the exact same way as in-person sessions do. Simply put, Quantum Physics tells us that every body part and every cell knows exactly what every other part or cell is doing. Further, it tells us that there is a deep interconnection and interdependence between every atom in the universe and therefore every human being in the universe. Much like a cell phone can quickly connect around the globe without a physical connection, Practitioners can tune in to their clients without having to use physical contact.
A Peer-reviewed published research study on distance BodyTalk treatments for chronic pain was carried out by 2 senior BodyTalk Instructors Janet Gallipo and Laura Stuve who is also a PhD Scientist. They got excellent statistically significant reduction of pain intensity in long term chronic pain sufferers and improvement in the associated emotional issues of anxiety and depression many patients face. In the discussion section they referenced other distance healing publications for more data on distance treatments effectiveness. Please also read the article below by Laura explaining receiving sessions at a distance. Read the Peer Reviewed Published Study here
Two other senior BodyTalk instructors Loesje Jacobs and Kerry D'Ambragio also carried out a project which they videoed called "Popping the Bubble of Doubt" where they used equipment and evaluation to measure and see what was happening in people before, during and after sessions - to see the changes in their energies and physical body.

Skype/Zoom and Distance Remote Treatments: Questions and Answers
1) Do I need to be at home and/or lying down during the session?
For Skype/Zoom sessions you need to be in a private place where you can sit and lie down propped up if need-be depending on what the session requires. You will also need to be in an area of the house that has great wi-fi.
For a Distance Session - this is done easily during normal everyday activities, but most people tend to like to relax or engage in a quieter activity during their session time.
2) Do I need to do anything to prepare?
Nothing specific needs to be done in preparation.
For the first session you will need to complete an Intake Form, Consent Form and for a Distance also send a recent photo of the client.
3) What will I notice following a session?
It is necessary for you to monitor not only how you feel physically but also watch to see if you’re responding mentally and emotionally in the same manner in similar situations in comparison to previous events and responses. Often a general sense of well being is noted along with other changes. Those sensitive to energy may notice tingling, heat, cold or other sensations throughout their body. Healing is individually tailored and rate of results being noticed vary with the individual. This does not mean nothing is happening. It does mean that healing is occurring on a deep level to which the individual may not be aware, for example, the subconscious level.
4) When will I find out the details of my Distance session?
At completion of the session, a voice recorded summary of the session is emailed to you for you to listen to when you are ready, and also may require you to do some action eg tapping where instructed.
5) How do group sessions work at a distance?
Much like working with an individual, the group is focused on using MindScape, typically working with a pre-arranged theme for that session. The nature of groupwork allows, from a quantum physics understanding of increasing observation, for exceptional effectiveness.

Distance Healing in the Time of Coronavirus
Let's Talk Science
This is the time to get your brilliance out there!
Want some science to back up your ability to treat effectively at a distance?
The world needs the powerful healing we can uniquely provide in the safe and effective format of distance treatments. But a lot of people - family, friends, and clients - may be having a hard time believing in this, and aren't open. This doubt is understandable - we've grown up in the Western healthcare paradigm where distance healing sounds like it's from a magical realm. I'm passionate about sharing my perspectives as a PhD scientist, mind-body medicine instructor and practitioner to help open doors for all of us to share the distance healing potential of the BodyTalk system with everyone who needs them right now....so here goes!
Together, we are facing a global Covid -19 pandemic that is disrupting every aspect of our lives. While we stay inside as much as possible, we still need groceries and supplies as do our animals. Some of us still need to go to work and interface with the public. No matter where or how you are hunkering down, we all need support - for our immune resilience, to manage our stress and emotional responses to the daily upheavals, and for some of us, to resolve the infection of this deadly virus itself. People need effective, safe healthcare NOW and why not brilliant treatments at a distance?
The mind-body angle
In mind-body medicine, we honor the impact of our beliefs, mindsets, stresses and emotions on our physical health...mountains of research support this connection! We know from the latest science, that our immune function is the most impacted system by stress and emotional swings.
Chronically stressed? Angry? Fearful? Feeling threatened by the financial and work uncertainty? Unsure what is safe to do?
Your immune system responds with depletion and underperformance.
Feeling alone and isolated in this lockdown era?
A sense of alienation and lack of connection has been shown to be the worst type of insult for the immune system - triggering reprogramming of the genes in the immune cells to both increase inflammation and debilitate your ability to fight off an infection.
BUT, we can talk to a counselor, a friend, a mentor and get a new perspective, shift our view, and feel a ray of optimism that becomes contagious...and this transformation trickles down to our cells! We don't need to talk in person with this supportive individual, we can connect by phone, email or watch a recorded message from them. The simple act of connection with someone by any medium shifts us into a productive stress response (as composed to a fight or flight stress response) and restores our immune function. Mindset Intervention research studies have shown this is a FAST and lasting response that occurs within 10-15 minutes of a simple reframing intervention - people's minds, emotional states and biology shift, clearing all the adversity of chronic stress including strain on the cardiovascular system and reversing the immune system debilitation.
And this is what mind-body practitioners do...simple emotional and stress releases that we can coach people to do live or remotely with equal effectiveness. And when we don't feel threatened and have a sense of support, we naturally relax, sleep better, heal and our immune cells re-engage with their jobs resolving true threats!
The stress angle
How could mind-body medicine work in the first place, let alone make a difference when done at a difference? Your autonomic (think automatic functions here...like digestion, heart rate, breathing) nervous system has two modes - a gas pedal and a brake. Like your car, you can't simultaneously drive it in both modes. You either have the gas pedal on and are in sympathetic (aka stress) mode, OR, you have the brakes on and are in relaxation (parasympathetic) mode. Science tells us that 100% of healing and rejuvenation happens in relaxation mode (so let's do the math here: 0% of healing happens when we're stressed!). So anything that gets you to relaxation mode boosts the body's natural ability to heal - anything! If you work with the BodyIntuitive/BodyTalk systems, we use simple techniques that balance the brain and work through acupuncture points to calm mind and body. These straightforward techniques can be taught remotely so anyone can touch the points and brain areas on themselves and get the powerful relaxation reset, which jump starts healing.
We have published research data demonstrating distance treatments work!
Check out the peer-reviewed published research study on distance BodyTalk treatments for chronic pain that Janet Galipo and I did in the Journal of Pain Management. We got excellent statistically significant reduction of pain intensity in long term chronic pain sufferers AND improvement in the associated emotional issues of anxiety and depression many patients face. In the discussion section, we reference other distance healing publications if you want more data!
Let's get more esoteric
As practitioners, we train our focus. We observe and focus on the priorities within mind and body - liver detox, Qi flow in the Spleen meridian, anti-viral activity in Killer T cells, calming stress from a challenging relationship. Initially, it's easiest for most of us to do muscle testing and have the level of focus required to get great results with a client lying on a treatment table right in front of us. But, over time, the ability to get the intuitive information and focus on the client's priorities is beyond space and time. We are accessing a blueprint of the individual in a more optimal state of health, an alternative quantum probability for their energy systems that is in better harmony and balance. And we can access and observe that blueprint from anywhere. The observer effect in quantum physics doesn't require a proximity of observation.
Some things are just empirical
Although I started out as a scientist skeptic, I now know distance healing works, because I have personally experienced it myself many times (it's awesome!), and have observed that my family, friends and clients see real changes of physical, emotional and spiritual health with distance treatments.
The practical aspect of distance healing is sorely needed TODAY, not tomorrow!
