Frequently Asked Questions
HOW DOES BODYTALK WORK?
A Bodytalk practitioner is a Psycho-Neuro-Immunologist (PNI). This is a study of how our psychological and emotional state affects our immune and nervous system. The PaRama Bodytalk System has the advantage of being able to expand exploration to all systems of the body that my be affected by emotional and psychological stresses. A simple example would be back pain. Back pain is usually a musculoskeletal injury not associated with immune problems. There will always be an emotional/psychological component to any pathology - back pain, cancer, headaches, anxiety etc. Bodytalk taps into the subconscious mind through biofeedback/muscle testing techniques. This enables the practitioner to uncover the underlying emotional and psychological stresses contributing to a patient's problem. Once this has been achieved healing can happen very quickly.

WHAT INFORMATION DO YOU NEED FROM ME BEFORE MY FIRST APPOINTMENT?
Before your first appointment you will need to have filled out this medical intake form with as much detail as possible. If you have a copy of your medical notes please attach them to the intake form by clicking the "from your computer" button at the top of the form. Alternatively you can bring any relevant paperwork with you.
HOW LONG WILL MY TREATMENT SESSION LAST?
Once you have chosen your appointment type you will notice the calendar timings are set a 45 minute increments. Most PaRama Body Talk Sessions last approximately 30 minutes. There are occasions when a little more time is needed so you will always have the flexibility of the extra 15 minutes should you need it at no extra cost. A session is a session no matter how long it lasts.
HOW MANY TREATMENT SESSIONS WILL I NEED?
Good question, impossible to answer. You will be used to being examined and given a diagnosis for your problem. You are then told what intervention you will need, and how long you will take to heal. Bodytalk doesn't work this way. Because we use muscle testing through the session, at the end of your session I will ask your body if it needs another session and when the ideal time in days will be. Everyone is different. Saying that it is rare that someone asks to come back in less than five days or more than 30. If your body says No to another session you have done all you need to recover.
HOW DO I PAY JOHN?
For local patients in New Zealand John accepts cash or E Transfer to his Kiwibank Account. For overseas patients he will invoice you via Paypal in the currency of the country you live. Paypal invoices include a 5% card processing fee.
WILL I NEED TO BRING SOMETHING TO CHANGE INTO?
Bodytalk sessions are conducted fully clothed. If you have a lower limb, back, hip or pelvic injury that will need to be assessed you can bring a pair of shorts to change into before your session. You may need to dress down to your underwear should you need acupuncture. Women should avoid wearing under wired bras and heavy jewellery. These items can disrupt a Bodytalk Session which could affect the results.
DO I NEED A REFERRAL?
No. However, if you are seeing me for a health reason, with your permission, there can be close liaison with medical staff. As a registered practitioner it is usually appropriate for some medical reports to be made available to me if necessary. I can provide a report about your treatment to the doctors involved if requested by you.
HOW CAN I FIND OUT MORE?
I welcome informal enquires about the services I provide and am always happy to discuss any individual requirements. A brief telephone conversation outlining your problem will enable me to plan the appropriate course of action.

"I have been amazed with the positive results from Bodytalk. I have had treatments for myself, my dog and my cat from John and would recommend him to anyone. Initially the concept was a bit beyond my understanding, however with an open mind I have been amazed time and time again with the results from both hands on and remote consults. John helped my dog through major leg surgery. Both prior to surgery in preparation for the operation and then after surgery for recovery and helping her body adjust to her new leg alignment. My cat (ex-feral)has had a treatment from John to help adjust and settle into our new home when we relocated. I have seen amazing improvements in my mental health. I know that Bodytalk has helped to dissolve unhelpful brain pathways I have had for 20 years. I can now say my depression has finally lifted, my social anxiety and general anxiety patterns are significantly reduced and continue to dissolve. These treatments have improved my life significantly and for that I am very grateful". Joni, BOP. New Zealand.
Just wanted to let you know that the Bodytalk session was amazing. When I woke up on Monday morning I felt this heavy cloud had been lifted from me. I felt happy, light and cheerful. Also I have had a bad knee for about 4 weeks, I haven't been able to walk properly for some time. Yesterday (Monday morning) I got up out of bed completely pain free !!!! Amazing. Thank you , thank you.

We were trying for our second child, and not having much success. A close friend suggested I try a session with John. I have always taken an open minded approach to allied health modilites. After reading my medical history, John suggested I commit to four sessions. He was working remotely from Tauranga in New Zealand. I became pregnant before the fourth session. I contacted him again for the birth. Our son was a few days late. John's BodyTalk session pinpointed the block and the estimated time of birth was accurate. I have found the whole process fascinating, accurate and helpful.

Robbie had laminitis and after being assessed by the vet, she decided the kindest thing would be to put him down. We were asked to prepare his grave and she would return that evening. I asked John if he could do a remote BodyTalk session from Tauranga for Robbie. He agreed. Robbie improved significantly that afternoon. When the vet returned she changed her mind. I sent John a video of Robbie before the session and the morning after. He responded so well. I'm so grateful for John's help.

"Cassie is a Border Collie girl that we have had since she was a pup. She was diagnosed as having a cancerous mast tumour on her chest wall. We chose not to pursue the surgical option and instead arranged for Cassie to have Body Talk sessions. At her next annual medical check-up on 9 July 2013 and subsequent check-ups July 2014 and July 2015, the veterinarians could not find the tumour diagnosed and confirmed in July 2012. Further, as part of an unrelated vet procedure in May 2015, Cassie’s chest was x-rayed and no trace of the July 2012 tumour is apparent. We have no doubt what-so-ever that the BodyTalk sessions in Tauranga with John, dealt with her cancer and are instrumental in extending and enhancing her life."
