BodyTalk Clinic Sessions

BodyTalk® is suitable for all individuals of all ages, including infants, children, adolescents and the elderly. Sessions can help improve the body’s overall wellbeing or help the body heal faster during times of illness, injury, medical treatments, and pre or post-surgery. 

BodyTalk Clinic Sessions with Sahan are by appointment only and conducted at his home-based private practice in Dianella, Western Australia, a short 10-minute drive from Perth city. Alternatively, a Distance BodyTalk Session may be suitable if you are not able to attend in person.

Make a booking using the online booking system on this page. All sessions require consent from the person receiving the session. Before booking for someone else, please read the section: Booking for another person.

Please scroll down to read the “Submit Information” section on this page.

Dress comfortably. Loose-fitting clothing will allow you to relax comfortably on the treatment table. Since BodyTalk techniques involve lightly tapping over your chest (sternum) and abdomen, please avoid wearing large necklaces or clothing with stiff zips or large buttons and embellishments that sit over the midline of your chest. These items can rattle or feel uncomfortable when tapped on and interfere with your total relaxation and the focus of your practitioner.

The BodyTalk® System does not prescribe a set number of sessions for an individual. At the end of the session, your body will be consulted and asked when, ideally, the next session should be. It is entirely up to you if and when you would like another session. It’s common for new clients to have 3 sessions over a season, and revisit once every 2 to 3 months, for what they affectionately call “a tune-up.”

Clients who are new to BodyTalk tend to have their initial sessions primarily focused on preparing their bodies to receive more complex sessions in the future. This scenario is especially common if they are incredibly stressed, run-down or experiencing acute pain. It would be far too traumatic for the brain and the body to engage in deep healing when it is distressed and deficient.

The body needs one or two BodyTalk sessions to help reduce stress levels and fortify its systems, energy networks, communication lines, and neural pathways in preparation to tackle more complex health issues at future sessions.

There is no massaging in BodyTalk sessions. There are some BodyTalk techniques where the practitioner will glide or move their hands over the skin which feels like a light massage. You will remain fully clothed at all times.

Lymph Movement

A healthy flow of lymph fluid is essential for the body’s immune function and waste removal. Akin to the sewerage system in a megacity, blocked pipes, overflowing drains, and sluggish flow of sewerage would cause the entire city to fall into disarray, and with that, innumerable diseases for its residents.

Palpating areas of the body with lymph nodes encourages movement and drainage of lymph fluid. The neck, collarbone, armpits, abdomen and the inner thigh near the groin are areas that routinely need attention. Fingertips are used in a light circular motion to stimulate lymph vessels that lie under the skin.

For sensitive areas such as the armpits and inner thigh, the client (or the parent, if the client is a child) will have the option to perform the required technique on themselves using their own hands.

Better Alignment, Better Communication

When improving the energetic alignment of organs, bones, fascia, and muscles, the practitioner will gently press and glide their hands over the area of concern to create the required movement. Most often, the hand movements are so subtle that the client does not feel them.

Typical areas are the head and scalp (for the brain, bones, and fluids), chest (for heart, lungs and breast tissue), and the abdomen (for the diaphragm, stomach, small intestine, colon, bladder, prostate, and uterus). Injuries such as herniated discs along the spine and joints, bones, and muscles of the arms and legs, can also be addressed this way.

For sensitive parts of the body, such as the chest for breast, lungs or heart issues, and the lower abdomen near the pubic crest for matters concerning the bladder, intestines, and the uterus, the practitioner will often opt for non-hands-on BodyTalk techniques that use deep focus instead. These techniques are standard when a part of the body is healing from a wound or surgery and cannot be disturbed.

Rates indicated on this website are per session, not per hour. Sessions are scheduled for up to 50 minutes. On average, they take around 45 minutes, depending on your state of health and how quickly your body assimilate the information and process the changes made during the session. 

The length of the session is not indicative of the quality or complexity of the session as your body decides exactly what it needs and can handle. In this way, you are sure to receive the care that is most appropriate for you.

All rates and prices on this website are in Australian dollars and include all taxes. There are no discounts available for session rates at this stage.

Consent required

In wholeheartedness to help, many people book BodyTalk sessions for loved ones without their permission. BodyTalk Practitioners do not conduct sessions on people who are unaware of them being performed. The only exception is when there is a one-time emergency, and the person to be worked upon is unconscious or in some other way, unable to provide verbal consent. For all BodyTalk sessions booked by a third party, Sahan will request verbal permission from the client at the time of the session.

BodyTalk sessions aim to bring every individual to a place of balance in their life. This balance is unique and individual to them. Not everyone feels that their life is out of balance or that they need repairing. From their unique perspective, they may be coping, or they may not want to make any drastic changes in their life right now.

Talking someone into receiving any form of therapy may prove to be challenging for you, and unpleasant for them. Instead, allow the person to observe the positive changes in your own life from BodyTalk and other similar therapies. That may be the inspiration they need to make an empowered decision in the future.

Children under 18: Let children know that you would like to book a BodyTalk session for them. Bringing the session to the child’s awareness is a significant part of their healing process and their life journey. It often spurs them to look forward to the session. School-aged children and teenagers under 18, usually prefer to give consent for their sessions, often with a simple “yes.” However, the legal guardian must also give consent. 

Adult individuals in care: Informed consent is not always possible if the client is unable to understand what BodyTalk is due to a disability, brain injury or impairment. In exceptional circumstances, on a case-by-case basis, the legal guardian may need to provide consent. Please discuss any concerns with Sahan before booking. 

Surrogate sessions

BodyTalk sessions for children can be delightful, not just for the child, but also for the family and the practitioner. Sessions are interactive, fun-filled and playful.

Some children find it challenging to sit still for an entire BodyTalk session. In these instances, Sahan may choose to do all or part of the session as a short-distance surrogate session with the child’s legal guardian serving as the surrogate. Short-distance sessions are made possible by advanced BodyTalk techniques developed for this type of work. The session is performed on the surrogate but with a focus on the child at a short distance. Sessions follow a similar format to a regular BodyTalk session, and the results are equally good.

If the child is unable to attend follow-up sessions due to school or illness, Sahan will perform a long-distance surrogate session. Again, the parent or guardian will serve as the surrogate at the clinic. While the session is underway, the child can carry on with their day as usual.

Helpful Tip

Bring a toy, a book or a handheld electronic device such as a smartphone, tablet, iPad or game to the session to keep the child occupied during short-distance sessions. Occasional use of toys and devices in this way will not interfere with the results of the session. Devices that produce sound must be used with headphones to avoid distractions for you and the practitioner.

Simple rules for parents and guardians to follow

  • Honour the presence of the child at the session.
  • Do not force the child to attend BodyTalk sessions. Consider inviting them to your BodyTalk sessions to watch a session first-hand.
  • Do not force the child to sit still or lie down on the treatment table during the session.
  • Do not make remarks about the child as if the child is not in the room. It is essential to maintain a nurturing environment at sessions.

Standards of confidentiality

Teenagers value confidentiality. The natural tendency for parents is to probe into session details after their child’s session, but the child may not want to reveal this information. Parents are encouraged to discuss and assure confidentiality with teenage children before committing them to a session.

Private sessions

Parents must also ask whether the teen prefers to have BodyTalk without the parents present in the room. Sometimes teens feel more comfortable if accompanied by a friend or relative, rather than a parent. Please note that the parent or legal guardian must still give consent for the session.

All information shared by the teen during their private session is strictly confidential unless where disclosure is necessary to safeguard or promote the safety, welfare, and wellbeing of that young person.

For clients who find it challenging to be calm and still for BodyTalk, Sahan may choose to do all or parts of the session as a short-distance surrogate session. The surrogate is often the guardian who escorted the client to the clinic.

Short-distance sessions are made possible by advanced BodyTalk techniques developed for this type of work. BodyTalk techniques are performed directly on the surrogate. Sahan’s focus and attention, however, will be directed to the client. Sessions follow a similar format to a regular BodyTalk session, and the results are equally good.

BodyTalk is not a modality for diagnosing or treating specific elements. However, clinical experience has shown that once the body’s overall systems are balanced through BodyTalk, clients have exhibited significant improvement in many areas of health. The work of the BodyTalk Practitioner is intended to complement working with your medical doctor – not replace it.

The BodyTalk Practitioner does not diagnose a disease or perform massage, manipulations, adjustments, or needling/injections. The BodyTalk Practitioner does not prescribe diets, herbs, supplements or medications, or provide any other service, procedure, or therapy which requires a license to practice, such as chiropractic, osteopathy, physical therapy, podiatry, orthopaedics, psychotherapy, acupuncture, dermatology, cosmetology, or any other profession or branch of medicine and healthcare unless specifically licensed to do so.
