“Through the gentle work of BodyTalk, not only did I find a path to manage my chronic pain, but I cleared the obstacles and old patterns that were keeping me from finding love. As my BodyTalk sessions progressed, Heather and I both recognized the shift and could feel my partner moving into my life. When he finally appeared, I knew that I was ready and was able to embrace the risk to reap the reward of love. For the past several months I have been enjoying a relationship built on mutual respect, affection, fun and true partnership. I know that I would not have been open to this kind of love without BodyTalk.”
