I have pursued a lifelong interest in holistic system theory, the premise being: parts influence one another within a whole and health is the result of the parts working together in a state of equilibrium and mutually advantageous actions. I studied numerous specific schools of thought and practice
I consider the individual as a whole person-mind, body, spirit in an every changing environment . Each person is much more than an illness, diagnosis, or symptom and deserves a personal approach and customized plan of care.
I use two structured, integrative protocols: BodyTalk and Accunect,. Together they combine Western and Eastern medicine, energy, Jungian psychology, consciousness, the 5 elements, and chakras with the body’s innate wisdom and internal resources to address the whole body as a comprehensive . My work is to aid individuals in moving toward their own healing and providing
the opportunity to live, play work and grow.

Holistic Nursing looks at the whole person- mind body and spirit in an ever changing environment and sees diagnosis, illness or symptoms as only one aspect of the individual.Holistic Nursing considers the individual a partner in the process of reestablishing health and as such, offers this as a foundation for clarifying and offering information from a variety of sources.
As a Holistic Nurse, I support you in identifying what is important to you and provide you information on a wealth of medical and complimentary resources that can be utilized together to support you as an individual. This would include considering your economic, cultural, religious, and spiritual values, beliefs and practices in designing a wellness plan with you that suites your lifestyle and will support your healing process. I do not prescribe, but aid you in making your own informed decisions.
BodyTalk and Accunect
BodyTalk™ re-patterns the way all the parts of the body work together in harmony, keeping hormones, emotions and mental clarity balanced and aiding the body in effective and efficient adaptation at times of change, minimizing the damaging physical effects of stress
The individual remains fully clothed sitting or comfortably lying on a massage table. The practitioner uses a highly structured,integrated protocol and employs neuromuscular biofeedback to identify weakened circuits of communication in priority order and determines an individualized approach for creating the most effective and efficient way to create the greatest change – to regain balance and reduce unwanted symptoms. The process encompasses the latest scientific understanding of the anatomy and physiology of the body; the Five Element and Meridian Theories of Chinese Medicine;perspectives from Ayurvedic Medicine; Jungian Psychology; Brain biochemistry, Energy and Quantum Physics.
BodyTalk™ has no contraindications, does not prescribe pharmaceutical, herbal or therapeutic remedies or require any equipment, and can therefore be delivered at any time, any where in a safe and non invasive manner.
For every weakened circuit found, the practitioner or client contacts the corresponding “points” with his or her hands. The practitioner then lightly taps the client on the top of the head and on the chest, stimulating the brain and body to begin the repair. The tapping is based on an ancient Hatha Yoga technique that has shown, through experiments using sophisticated biofeedback machines, that using this technique while focusing on specific parts, increases brain activity that facilitates a major increase in healing. The length of a session is usually between 30 minutes and one hour depending on how much the body is ready to receive. Most people experience a sense of calm and often find themselves falling asleep during a session.
BodyTalk has successfully supported individuals experiencing any type of pain regardless of location or underlying root cause; immune reactions including colds and viruses; inflammatory reactions; surgical or other trauma; mental confusion; stress reactions, and side effect reactions from on going traditional medical treatments.
I had several sessions with Jalma and while I visited her with no particular
reason in mind, I started to notice changes within and externally. I noticed
that I was less achy, that I had less acne breakouts and the anxiety about
what I was going to do in the next phase of my life lessened. I felt like I had
more of a direction and purpose. Her sessions are very empowering, filled
with energy and her level of knowledge is very deep. Everyone should try

As someone who is very analytical and verbal, BT is different than other therapies, because it’s not about
talking/analyzing to resolve something that may be causing dis-ease for me. I can’t deny the benefit
though, both physically and emotionally – BT works at a level separate from rational & sequential thought.
I don’t fully understand how BT works, I just know that it does. I come away from a session feeling better
and over the next few days, often feel even more benefit

I was somewhat skeptical at first, tending to be someone who struggles with
believing in something until I’ve experienced it myself. The healing that has taken
place for me since my BodyTalk session has been amazing, dealing with emotional
wounds from when I was a very young child. I feel calmer and more at ease in my
body. Thank you so much for making me a believer in this wonderful technique.
Thank you Jalma! I had a wonderful and magical day yesterday. I was able
to use it on my Dad and husband. They loved it!!!! My Dad felt better and
more energized and my husband slept like a baby. My husband said that
the system really works. I also started my day using the whole system and
I had a perfect day!!!!!! I was not overwhelmed and did not experience any
I have done several types of body centered growth work. In my experience,
BodyTalk has produced the most powerful insights and it has enabled me
to grow in new ways.

Body Talk is undefinable and indescribable. Those words, in themselves, will tell you how
powerful this has been for me. The concept of someone being able to communicate with my
body is mind boggling. Body Talk helped my stepdaughter in California in three sessions
to cope with her grief and anger, as well as physical issues that were resolved. I had been
in unrelenting pelvic pain for months when I made an appointment with Jalma. Her medical
background is remarkable and her sensitivity to reading my body talking to her was nothing
short of amazing. She gave me her undivided attention and was totally connected with my body
and emotions. Although each person’s amount of time will vary, after four Body Talk sessions I
am now free of the pain

Jalma has a gift for feeling at the “unseen” level. She has a natural talent for Bodytalk and has
helped me and my dog feel better than we have in years!
