Hi I'm Dawn, owner and Certified BodyTalk Practitioner of Life Unlimited BodyTalk, welcome and thanks for stopping by!I love making people aware of where their pain, fatigue and tension really come from; and the role the body/mind/spirit connection plays in their lives through The BodyTalk System. It just lights me up when others regain hope and a deeper understanding of life, that restores peace and vitality to their body, mind and soul!
I've been intuitive, empathic and highly sensitive all my life. Those gifts coupled with a passion of anatomy and physiology - meant I was destined to be a 'healer'.
I started my first healing career as a Registered Massage Therapist graduate in 2001. After several years building my Massage Therapy business in Winnipeg where I grew up, and a big move to Saskatoon that had me leaving my friends, family, business and house I had bought a few months before - in 2007 I sustained a severe weight training injury of the muscles in my left shoulder and right hip flexor simultaneously. At the time I worked in a health centre and tried all the physical modalities to relieve the agony - massage, chiropractic and acupuncture all did nothing. I hadn't slept in 3 weeks when another massage therapist I worked with suggested I try BodyTalk. "What is BodyTalk?" I asked, "I don't know how to explain it, but it's amazing and it works." She replied.
I was desperate and willing to try anything at that point, so I booked an appointment. In the first 5 minutes of my session, I knew this was the missing link in health care! I knew I had to be a part of this revolutionary system that reconnected the body/mind/spirit to promote the body's own healing capacity. Oh AND... That night my body pain was about 80% resolved and I slept like a baby! Turned out there was emotional energy stuck in my shoulder that needed to be released - a massive build up of guilt; for shirking my perceived responsibility of taking care of everyone I had left in Winnipeg. Once we discharged that emotional energy, the pain dissolved with it! That was the beginning of my journey to becoming a Certified BodyTalk Practitioner in 2009.
Fast forward to 10 years later In 2019, I retired from my 18 year Massage career to provide BodyTalk full time, because I feel the benefits of BodyTalk are so comprehensive.
I will be forever grateful for this amazing system and am committed to pass this gift on to as many people as possible. I truly feel that the only way people heal fully from pain, fatigue and illness, is when we address the whole person; taking into account every aspect of their story, helping them realize they have more power to change their bodies than they believe... That this is the way people are meant to be treated by health care professionals. I look forward to getting to know you, and being a resource of knowledge and support for you, on the healing journey we call life.
