Once you learn BodyTalk, it is a toolset and a mindset that is always with you. The principle of relying on the body’s innate wisdom rather than superimposing your ideas about how it should heal is so sensible when you hear it that you can’t believe you ever thought you could force the body into compliance through personal agenda. The fundamental principle of letting the body choose its own “priorities” and “sequence” for self-repair makes a lasting impression on how we look at health forever after having learned BodyTalk.
All students start in BodyTalk learning how to utilize intuition in a linear and structured way to support the body in healing itself. When students are ready, the advanced PaRama BodyTalk course re-wires the practitioner’s three brain centers so they can apply BodyTalk principles and techniques in a far more flexible and expansive fashion. PaRama BodyTalk is a course that strengthens every student’s trust in their intuition. It supports their innate wisdom in having more freedom as it navigates an endless array of possibilities for healing. The course not only deepens the understandings and implications of Dynamic Systems Theory (the idea that everything affects everything); it teaches methods and tools to create highly sophisticated BodyTalk formulas that are more far-reaching in their effects. The more “active” components of a health issue that can be “caught” all at once, the more profound and lasting the results.
In April of 1991, BodyTalk founder John Veltheim awoke from a meditation knowing he would call his advanced work “PaRama.” At the time, he did not know what the word meant. The word comes from Sanskrit and means “highest” or “beyond.” The PaRama course takes what you learned in the core BodyTalk modules and goes far beyond them in terms of concepts and techniques.
The PaRama work has proven to have a profound impact on countless practitioners, clients, and students who have experienced a shift in their consciousness and their lives. PaRama BodyTalk sessions work strongly in such a way that long-hidden, internal obscurities and imbalances find their way to the surface to be healed. While such powerful shifts sometimes cause temporary, superficial conflict, the sense all along the way is that it is well worth it.
This course was developed by BodyTalk Founder Dr. John Veltheim and the PaRama Campus team, a group of open-minded individuals collaborating to develop the online content, structure, design, and technology. In the development and research of the course, Dr. Veltheim also collaborated with longtime PaRama BodyTalk Practitioner, Tim Hall, who contributed greatly to the written course content and is also a co-lecturer in the video presentations.
John Veltheim is the founder of The BodyTalk System. He is cofounder of both the International BodyTalk Association and the International BodyTalk Foundation, which helps fund research and offers BodyTalk Access to people in places where healthcare is not readily available.
He is formally trained as a chiropractor and acupuncturist and served as Principal of the Brisbane College of Acupuncture and Natural Therapies for five years. Dr. Veltheim's extensive postgraduate studies include applied kinesiology and Bioenergetic therapy. He has also studied osteopathy and sports medicine.
His other areas of expertise include counseling, comparative philosophy, and theology. John also has extensive knowledge in the field of quantum physics and consciousness and has spent much time lecturing internationally on these topics.
Dr. Veltheim has written numerous magazine and journal articles on BodyTalk and his other fields of knowledge. Dr. Veltheim’s work has also been published in the Journal of Alternative Medicine Research. The journal’s publishers were so impressed with his development of The BodyTalk System, they dedicated an entire volume solely to articles about BodyTalk.
He is the published author of several books on the topics of Reiki, acupuncture and BodyTalk. He has created numerous BodyTalk courses and developed the PaRama BodyTalk program where science meets healing at the highest level.
Tim Hall has been highly involved with BodyTalk for over 15 years, and he regularly supports BodyTalk founder John Veltheim with course development and research. Tim was one of the most passionate proponents of the PaRama course when it first came out many years ago.
Tim has his Master of Science in Kinesiology (human movement), a Graduate Certificate in Applied Nutrition, and a lifetime of experience with mediation and stress release methods. Additionally, he is a Nationally Board Certified Licensed Massage Therapist with several therapeutic bodywork specialties and a Corrective Exercise Specialist. Tim has a background in martial arts and has also been certified as a yoga instructor.

“What we call conscience is rooted in the sub-superconscious. This is where our ability to live dharmically and choose right from wrong originates. When consciousness is permanently seated in the sub-superconscious, we live intuitively all the time.”
– John Veltheim
