PaRama BodyTalk is the post graduate level system. The word 'PaRama' comes from Sanskrit and means 'highest' or 'beyond'. The PaRama BodyTalk course takes what is learned in the core BodyTalk modules and goes far beyond them in terms of concepts and techniques. PaRama practitioners have done a minimum of 80hrs of post graduate level lectures plus two practical application courses.
What is PaRama Bodytalk?
The PaRama BodyTalk programme was first developed in 2004.
PaRama BodyTalk enables the practitioner to delve far deeper into the psychological and emotional state of the patient. This enables a comprehensive insight into what the patient is choosing to change during their session.
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 4.5% 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.
