The BodyTalk System was developed in the 1990’s by Dr. John Veltheim, an Australian acupuncturist, philosopher and author. Prior to developing The BodyTalk System, John was the principle of the Brisbane College of Acupuncture and Natural Therapies for many years. During this time his own health deteriorated, and he contracted the Epstein Barr virus which did a great deal of damage in his body. Western doctors informed him that he may not live.  John suffered with chronic fatigue, a body temperature over 100 degrees, consistent pain and cramping. Nothing seemed to help until he came across a technique similar to one that is now used in BodyTalk. Three days later, the virus was completely gone! This led to further research and eventually, The Body Talk System. When applied, the BodyTalk techniques resulted in amazing outcomes for those suffering with many conditions and diseases.

Dr. Veltheim’s post graduate studies include: Applied Kinesiology, bio-energetic therapy, osteopathy, sports medicine, counseling, comparative philosophy, and theology. He has written books on The BodyTalk System which have been translated into several languages and BodyTalk is now being taught in over 30 countries in the world.
