The owner of eden wholistic - Cheryl Ramsay
Since I was a child I felt that there was more to life than just the physical existence. In my twenties I went searching for a healing modality that honoured all aspects of the person: body, mind and spirit. I took numerous courses through Wildrose College in Calgary and learned about reflexology, herbology, homeopathy and aromatherapy. It was not until a friend of mine introduced me to BodyTalk in 2011 that I finally found what I had been searching for all my life... (continued below)

I had the privilege of working with Anita Moorjani, author of Dying to be Me in New York in May 2019. What she witnessed in her near death experience is consistent with BodyTalk principles and understandings of reality and healing.
... I have suffered with chronic headaches most of my life. The headaches were increasing in frequency and duration to the point that I was having headaches twice a week with them lasting two days at a time. I tried chiropractic, massage, physiotherapy without any success. I even had a CAT scan, but the doctors could not help and only offered prescription pain relief.
With little sense of hope, I managed as best I could until a co-worker at the law firm I was working at during that time said that I should try "BodyTalk". I had no idea what that was, but was willing to try anything at that point. I attended my first BodyTalk session in August 2011 and had a profound experience. I felt a huge shift in my energy levels and now enjoy life without the chronic pain. I was so amazed by my personal experience that I had to learn about this unique healing modality. I attended my first course called BodyTalk Access in November 2011. I was hooked! Since my first course I have established a daily BodyTalk routine and have noticed significant changes. I am now more flexible, my immune system is stronger (not catching every flu/cold virus) and I have a more positive and flexible state of mind.
In January 2012 I completed the BodyTalk Fundamentals course (Module 1 & 2) and later that year became certified as a BodyTalk Practitioner. I have attended all the advanced BodyTalk courses, including Principles of Consciousness (Module 3), Bio-Dynamics (Module 4/7), Lymphatic Drainage and Applied Anatomy & Physiology (Module 5), Microcosmic BodyMind (Module 6), Matrix Dynamics (Module 9) along with Eastern Medicine, the BioPhysical Mind. To further enhance my clinical work, I attended the MindScape, BreakThrough, Advanced MindScape and FreeFall courses.
In January 2014 I successfully completed all requirements of the International BodyTalk Association to become an Advanced Certified BodyTalk Practitioner. I have also studied the advanced PaRama College courses and attended the practicals for PaRama Levels I and II. More recently I have attended the Practitioner's Reflex, Body Psychology and BodyTalk Direct courses. I am a perpetual student of the healing arts and continue with my education by auditing BodyTalk courses and attending other courses and retreats which provide opportunities for further understanding and enhancement of my practical and intuitive awareness.
My education and interests have taken a deeper focus at consciousness and how the interconnection of life is arranged and manifested. In 2017 I attended a conference being offered by Gary Renard, author of The Disappearance of the Universe. His experiences in the nature of life and perception of reality provide a very different angle and understanding which can be a great benefit in self healing. Eckart Tolle, author of The Power of Now and A New Earth, provided an evening presentation in May 2018 in Calgary and I was reminded of the importance of presence in my practice. In August 2018 I attended a meditation retreat at which time I had a profound awakening. In May of 2019 I had the pleasure of attending a 5 day retreat with Anita Moorjani. In her book, Dying to be Me she recalls her life story both before and after her near death experience. What intrigued me the most was her quantum shift in consciousness which changed her body from having end stage cancer to having no cancer. Meeting and working with her was an absolute joy and incredible growth experience which I share with my clients, especially ones with life threatening conditions. My next learning adventure took me to Costa Rica in January 2020 where I experienced a very deep awakening and change in life perspective.
In my desire to better serve and support my clients, I now offer a one day course called the HelioSol Technique. This profound yet simple technique supports individuals in their healing journey and is also part of an entire healing modality called the HelioSol System. I invite my BodyTalk clients to consider taking this training as self-care between sessions. Healthcare practitioners employing different modalities may wish to incorporate the powerful HelioSol Technique into their own practice. Other people may wish to work towards becoming a HelioSol Practitioner themselves. To learn more about this amazing technique please go to the HelioSol Technique tab.
I believe that we are all put on this planet to have a “human” experience. However, in having this experience we take things on that do not serve us or allow us to move forward. As Jane Fonda so eloquently said, “We are not meant to be perfect, we are meant to be whole”. I believe that BodyTalk allows the person to release what is not serving them so that they can experience life and feel whole. I am excited to continue my journey of learning and applying the principles of BodyTalk and HelioSol to my clients so that they can live the life they were meant to live!

I also had the pleasure to talk with Amber Romaniuk of Amber Approved.
