BodyTalk’s Brain Balancing (Cortices) technique is the most effective self-care tool that I’ve learned in 40 years of practice is. It is the hub of the BodyTalk System.
This brain balancing technique facilitates a whole brain approach to life, including:
- enhanced stress management
- increased relaxation and well being
- improved brain function & mental clarity
Using the technique on a daily basis develops new habits, which promotes sustained stress management, relaxation and mental clarity.
Habits are often established with 28 days of repetition. Using the technique for 3-5 months will help to “rewire” the amygdalia and reset your stress threshold.

You may also journal about your brain balancing experiences to further explore your stress patterns, such as:
- date/day of the week
- time/activity (e.g. morning, lunch, bedtime)
- comments (e.g. what did you feel, learnings, insights, recognized shifts, etc.)
Learning to observe your stress patterns, and to facilitate stress management, can help you to fully embrace all that life offers.
