Firework season is upon us again, and many animals and people struggle with the noise that some fireworks make.

My name is Elaine Downs, and I am a qualified Body Talk Practitioner for animals and humans. In this short blog I will explain to you how one of the Body Talk techniques can help both animals and humans to feel calmer when they hear the bangs from the fireworks.

First let me give you a short explanation of what Body Talk is and does.

Body Talk is an Energy Therapy which helps to restore balance in areas of your body/mind complex where imbalance has arisen.  Every part of our body and mind is connected to, and in constant communication with, every other part of our body and mind. When we feel stressed or ill, it is because the communication has broken down between certain parts of our body/mind complex. Body Talk uses certain techniques to re-balance, and restore that communication between the affected parts. Body Talk works to re-balance the whole, not just a specific bit of an individual’s body/mind complex.

Body Talk is extremely effective in helping animals as well as humans.

The technique which is extremely helpful in calming fears of loud noises is called the Cortices Technique. This technique balances all areas of the brain, and is very calming and relaxing to receive. Recipients have been known to fall asleep whilst receiving a cortices treatment.

It doesn’t take long to do, and you can do it directly on your animal if they don’t mind having their head being touched. Alternatively you can be the surrogate for your animal and do it on yourself for your animal, whilst you are with them. Keep repeating the technique for as long as you need to, until your animal calms down and starts to relax.
