Helen Smeh - BodyTalk West
BodyTalk is a simple, safe and astonishingly effective system of integrative health care. BodyTalk is a holistic approach to healing, based on proven principles of energy medicine. The body is a complex ecosystem with a delicate balance between physiological biochemical functions, emotional and mental interactions, environmental influences, and hereditary and genetic restrictions. BodyTalk helps synchronize the body’s natural functions - to achieve and maintain healing and growth on all levels: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual.
You will be asked to complete a Health Self Assessment so that a brief medical history may be taken which will identify particular symptoms, pains or chronic health issues. Fully clothed you will be asked to rest face up, on a massage table.
You will be kept informed of the formulas being used. Most people feel relaxed as they are asked to breathe deeply while the BodyTalk practitioner gently taps on the head and sternum (heart complex). The duration of a session is not indicative of the quality of the session or the results that occur. Because your innate wisdom is dictating the session, you can be assured of receiving exactly what is needed at that particular time for the enhanced communication and balancing to take place. A BodyTalk session usually lasts between 30-60 minutes. Your innate wisdom will dictate when the session is complete and establish a time when you need to return for a follow-up session.
BodyTalk uses the principles of energy medicine and your body’s innate wisdom to help it promote healing on all levels. BodyTalk practitioners find out what your body needs to rebalance the flow of healthy energy.
A BodyTalk practitioner is trained to silently ask your body a series of questions outlined on an extensive Protocol and Procedure chart. Your body knows what needs to heal. And it knows the priority the healing should take.
In BodyTalk, your body’s choice is ALWAYS honored. The sequence to be addressed is determined by your body’s own innate intelligence or wisdom. To promote faster healing, the proper order of linking is most important.
A special technique – lightly tapping on your head and your heart - is used to restore the communication systems within your body/mind. This links those parts that your body has prioritized.
Healing happens when parts of your body are re-synchronized and communicating with each other.
Your body knows how to heal itself – it just needs to remember!
BodyTalk is based on the simple, profound principle that your body is capable of healing itself at all levels. ‘Natural’ healing is automatically initiated when you cut your finger or twist your ankle. The stresses of daily living can compromise your innate healing ability and lead to degeneration and illness. BodyTalk reminds your body/mind to direct its healing to these neglected or compromised areas.
A Certified BodyTalk Practitioner has completed the fundamental coursework of the BodyTalk System, re-monitored that coursework, and satisfied the standards of a Certified BodyTalk Instructor – in both a written and a practical exam – that they have mastered the material and the techniques of the System. Many Certified BodyTalk Practitioners are licensed practitioners in other modalities and have integrated BodyTalk into their practice. Still others (including acupuncturists, chiropractors, MDs, and physical therapists) now practice BodyTalk almost exclusively, because they are discovered the results are permanent and fast.

I first started BodyTalk sessions about 2 years ago. I had been severely depressed and afraid to leave my house. I had for almost 3 years left my home only when absolutely necessary - running my business from there. This was causing me a great deal of stress plus my business was suffering since I wasn''t attending to it as I should. I wasn't sleeping well and I had a number of health problems in addition to the depression.
A family member of mine told me to try BodyTalk and I was fortunate that Helen happened to be living in Regina and was available to start seeing me. I will admit I had huge doubts.
After my first session, I slept very deeply and well. This was a huge change as previously I would only sleep fitfully for a couple of hours at a time. Since that time it has only gotten better.
Some of the improvements I have seen is a lifting of my depression - I now am working out in my office daily. I have seen a number of allergies - such as those to food (chocolate, can you believe that!) - disappear. I can now eat chocolate cake, a favorite dessert that I had to avoid for many years. My panic attacks have disappeared. Emotionally I am in such a better place.
I was sorry to see Helen leave Regina since I attribute my health improvements to BodyTalk. I wouldn't hesitate to see her again and hope that when I visit my family in Ontario that I will be able to continue with my BodyTalk treatments.

I went to see Helen after a friend of mine out west told me about BodyTalk. I was having a lot of pain in my left foot and I no longer was able ot do the things that I loved - running and dancing.
Well, after 3 sessions I noticed that my migraines weren't happening any longer. I hadn't even thought to speak to her about it because I have had them, or a headache daily, since I was a teenager and everyone told me there was nothing that could be done. WOW!!
Thank you so much for helping me to have a normal pain-free life again!

I have seen my backpain all but disappear since starting to see Helen and receiving BodyTalk sessions. This after years of Massage Therapists and Chiropractors. Also, overall I feel better, more energized and healthier.
Recently my whole family had the flu for days. During that time I had a session with Helen. I felt nasty the day that I went to see her but after the BodyTalk session, I slept very deeply for 3 hours and had a little bit of a fever. When I woke up I was feeling much better. I never got the flu like everybody else! All of them suffered for at least 3 days straight. I was fine the next day. THANK YOU!

I have been suffering from a lot of stress and extreme emotional upset for a couple of years now. My doctor has had me on medication for it but I didn't like how I was feeling. I tried a lot of different things and other forms of healing like Acupuncture, Reiki, Therapeutic Touch ... they were good but I didn't feel better for more than a couple of days afterward. When a friend suggested Bodytalk I have to admit, I was skeptical but figured, what the heck! Well, I was blown away! After my first session I was crying a lot less (I used to cry all the time every day). I saw her again a week afterward and I was so much better. Everyone noticed - my family and friends were all asking what had happened as I supposedly "looked better." We are now working on other health concerns that I have and I am feeling better and better. My doctor is even considering taking me off some of my medications. I am so thankful to Bodytalk and Helen for coming into my life.

I went to see Helen after hearing about her from a friend of mine. I was just curious about what Bodytalk was about and how it could help me. Well, during my first session, without my even telling her what was going on with me, she immediately picked up that I had a milk allergy and, that I had issues with my stomach. She totally blew me away! During the session she did this tapping and I thought that it really wasn't doing anything. Well, almost immediately, my digestion started to work better. My heartburn pretty much went away - even days later. I have since gone back to see her and since then my chronic knee pain has also gone away. I strongly recommend Bodytalk and Helen to everyone!
