A Note From John

As many of you know I have stepped away from sessions recently. I have decided to take a break and I have entrusted these practitioners to continue with your treatments. Over the years I have not only personally received sessions with these practitioners, but I trained them all myself. You will be in good hands with any of them.


I do not know my future plans at this point and I don't want to leave you without treatment. I do plan to relax and possibly visit with some family. Thank you for your dedication to your own health and entrusting The BodyTalk System to support your healing process.



Dear Members and friends,

In the early hours of the morning, 11/22/22, our beloved John transitioned from his physical form peacefully at home. In his final days, there was a gentleness in him and a sweet humor, and he was able to engage with family and friends and, thankfully, remained pain-free.

There has been a memorial page created in his honor. We invite you to share any pictures or memories that you have of this wonderful man and his incredible gift to the world, The BodyTalk System.

In lieu of flowers to the home or family, your donation and support of the International BodyTalk Foundation would be something that would have him smiling.

A Bit About John

Dr. John Veltheim. D.C, B.Ac is the founder of the BodyTalk System and the International BodyTalk Association. Dr Veltheim is a chiropractor, traditional acupuncturist, philosopher, Reiki Master, lecturer and teacher.

The BodyTalk System was first developed in the 1990’s by Dr. John Veltheim. Originally from Australia, Dr. Veltheim ran a very successful clinic in Brisbane for 15 years. He was also the Principal of the Brisbane College of Acupuncture and Natural Therapies for five years.

His extensive post-graduate studies include applied kinesiology, bio- energetic psychology, osteopathy, quantum physics, sports medicine, counseling and comparative philosophy and theology.

The BodyTalk System was discovered by Dr. John Veltheim in the mid 1990’s.  His own state of health was compromised despite being a leader in the healthcare field working with both eastern and western methods.  He eventually found a simple technique that corrected his condition.  John saw this breakthrough as a new priority in his life and proceeded to investigate the techniques and principals involved. 

In 1998, Dr. Veltheim moved to Sarasota, Florida to further his practice and research of BodyTalk. Soon he began to teach advanced levels of the BodyTalk System to professionals as well as lay people. When word spread about the successes of this remarkable new healthcare system, he took on the task of training other instructors so the BodyTalk System could be taught worldwide. Today there are over 200 instructors teaching in over 50 countries with translation of training materials into 10 languages.

Today, Dr. Veltheim travels the world, teaching sessions in BodyTalk and its related wellness programs to professionals as well as lay people. He continues to mentor and train a network of instructors to ensure this remarkable new healthcare system can be taught worldwide.
