If you need to change it, please click on the URL in the appointment confirmation email that you received or by logging directly into the online calendar. Please do not email or text Jaya to cancel your appointment. (You cannot cancel your appointment less than 48 hours before it begins in the online calendar.

 Distance Sessions

Distance sessions are available by Skype or phone and can be paid via PayPal or electronic banking. They take place using the same method and have the same results as in-person sessions. 

Dr. Don Pilipovich, Auccupuncturist, RMT and former BodyTalk Instructor, as well as two Doctors from the Centre of Biofield Sciences in Pune, India completed a study on BodyTalk distance sessions. They measured real-time changes in the human energy field via photographs taken before and after distance sessions.

In addition, Dr. Laura Stuve, molecular biologist, two colleagues from the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) and Dr. Janet Galipo, Dr. of Chinese Medicine, led a study on the efficacy of BodyTalk distance sessions in the treatment of chronic pain. The evaluation of these sessions suggests that it significantly improved pain levels, as well as fatigue and other emotional symptoms associated with long-term chronic pain.

The following evaluation was published in the Journal of Pain Management 2015, vol. 7, #4, pp. 279 – 290, which you can read by clicking here: BT Chronic Pain Evaluation.



Payment can be made by cash or check. If you are paying electronically by Interac e-transfer or PayPal, please pay prior to your session. (Please note that PayPal fees are included in the prices below).
