Did you know . . . .
The body is made from 70-90% water? Water plays a critical role in general brain function and nerve transmission. No Water means no communication between cells and that messages cannot flow as easily from one part of the body to another. Most people are not aware that they can display signs of dehydration even though they drink plenty of water.
In BodyTalk, we understand that the body must be able to know how to move the water in and out of the cells. Water going into a cell brings in nutrients and water flowing out of a cell takes the waste material out. In addition, water is generally associated with the emotion of joy. Hence, dehydration would be associated with a lack of joy in life. Sometimes, the concept of boundaries will need to be balanced and can directly relate to hydration in the body. If we feel that something is really, really good and that we must keep as much as possible, then the cells may allow a lot of water in, but not allow water out. Likewise, if a person feels that it is not safe to let anything in (building a “brick wall” to stay protected from people or life), then they may not allow water into the cells. In a BodyTalk session, hydration could be used to address these issues.
BodyTalk Hydration is the third technique that we teach in the BodyTalk Access class and helps a person’s body assimilate water in the best possible way. This technique allows the body to bring in the appropriate amount of water into the cells bringing in nutrients and allow the waster materials to be flushed out of the cells. Not only that, but proper hydration is the fastest way for the body to remove free radicals.
Separate from BodyTalk sessions with a practitioner, BodyTalk Access is a set of techniques from the BodyTalk System that forms a system to help address the day-to-day needs of the individual.
