Body Intuitive is a powerful new energy healing modality that marries current western medical science with Classical Chinese Medicine. It was created by molecular biologist Laura Stuve, Ph.D., and Chinese Medicine Doctor, Janet Galipo, DOM. Body Intuitive evolved from the BodyTalk System, and like Body Talk, it is a system of healing that takes the mind, body, and spirit of a person into consideration. It uses a variety of techniques to tap into the body’s innate wisdom and natural capacity for self-healing. A fundamental premise of Body Intuitive is that all types of stressors impact health, including but not limited to, adverse childhood experiences as well as traumatic experiences throughout the life-cycle, lifestyle habits and environmental factors, ancestral history, and genetics. These factors impact the function of bodily systems and affect their ability to communicate effectively with each other and undermine optimal health and well-being.
Body Intuitive is based upon the premise that cells in the body communicate with one another constantly via subtle energetic circuitry and that stress compromises this dialogue. Self-healing is facilitated by a Body Intuitive practitioner who discerns imbalances in the patient through structured intuition and neuromuscular feedback. Using a variety of techniques, energetic connections in the mind, body, and spirit that have been interrupted are re-established and balance is restored.
Energy healing modalities that practitioners and patients alike find valuable and effective, are generally not supported by evidence-based research studies. My perspective is that the proof of the pudding is in the eating. There was a recent article in the April 2020 issue of the Atlantic Magazine titled “Reiki Cannot Possibly Work. So Why Does It?”
Body Intuitive can be practiced equally effectively at a distance as in person.
