I have been seeing Krista for Body Talk sessions over the past several years and have appreciated her professional, compassionate support. I would describe these sessions as a combination of subtle body work, energy balancing and intuitive counselling.
Each appointment is a healing journey into self awareness. It begins with a check- in or sharing with Krista what’s been happening in my life, any challenges and where I am at in the moment. She then uses gentle touch to tune into my body’s inner wisdom. This helps to identify possible energy blocks, imbalances or disconnects between body and mind that may be contributing to confusion or disharmony at the time. My body is able to speak for itself and shares with her its innate messages and inner intelligence. We then use tapping and breathwork to help rebalance chakras, organs and body/mind connection, all leading to a greater sense of ease, clarity and understanding. It always amazes me how often we begin with one idea or thought that then takes us in a surprisingly different direction and place of understanding and insight. In any case, I always leave the session feeling rejuvenated, optimistic and much better prepared to deal with any upcoming challenges in my life.
I have also learned Access from Krista which I use on a daily basis as a tool to help maintain my sense of groundedness, harmony and well being. This has been especially helpful during these challenging and unpredictable times of Covid! -Carol
BodyTalk with Krista helps me heal in so many ways & keeps my body balanced. When I first went to her, she helped me through a heart-wrenching betrayal. I am incredibly grateful for her. Its difficult to explain how it feels unless you experience it for yourself. All I know is that it works!
-Nathalie I feel a profound relief and joy after a session with Krista. It’s almost comical how I go to see her with an agenda of what I want or think needs to shift. And with great care and respect Krista blows that out of the water and delves into what is current and prevalent for me at the moment. Krista’s work is so tailor made that sometimes I almost miss this fact and take for granted the peace and alignment I experience. I often experience aha moments long after the session, I once had this life changing awareness around catering to people because of a fear of being abandoned. In particular around men, because I lost my Dad when I was young and I felt abandoned. I never realized I felt this way or how hard I was trying to protect myself with this fear. I can’t explain how Krista facilitated this awareness, other than clearing up guck and making my truth clearer and helping me be braver to look and see. I love the work she does, and I always feel brighter and clearer after a session with Krista. -Leslie Richter
Hi Krista, I attended the Body Talk Access seminar you taught near Edmonton . I wondered if I could share the results? I came in terrible condition medically and physically. I was exhausted and physically in pain as well as discomfort . I do energy work for others but hadn’t taken good care of myself. After learning Body Talk Access I had my disabling daily allergies remit almost immediately. Friends and family couldn’t believe the difference and neither could I. I gained more stamina and felt more positive. I kept up a daily practice, sometimes several times in my a day I would do cortices . One of the most helpful pieces was a) knowing Zack overcame lactose intolerance using Body Talk access and b) understanding that some things accrue because of the stories we tell ourselves . A huge takeaway was that I stopped telling myself stories. It not only helped my body but my mind to relax and repair. Recently we moved and I fell out of practice with Body Talk Access. Slowly , over a period of three months, the allergies returned until they were back with a vengeance . I started back to the full sequence today and feel much better already. I’m so grateful for this method and your teaching.
I've had SUCH a healing day. I had a session done on me today as well - and I absolutely love getting sessions so I can be clearer for those in my energy vortex. I fully dived in and realized through the session, a huge misperception I've been holding onto. I'm holding onto survivor mentality. Surviving the next part of life. Just getting through it. Creating a ripple effect of events I've had to survive, my amygdala scanning for the next episode. I broke down in tears when I realized through this amazing session with Krista Hurton, that I had ZERO idea what it would feel like to not be sick. I've always had one health issue after another since birth. I've never fully had energy like everyone else. And so has the comparison been set in my mind. If I can't see what a life would feel like, what my body would feel like as being sick - how could my mind wrap itself around not being so? Gently allowing these pieces to fall away so that I can feel healthy. I can be all the things that I've resigned myself to thinking would never happen for me. And there is a grieving process to this - the who I am 'no longer' and feel into who I am without this perception on myself. Healers need healing too. - Cassandra
When I was 19, finishing high school, and I had just met the love of my life, I was suddenly pregnant at 20 and eventually gave birth to my daughter who was born a medically fragile child. She was born with no life expectancy, and we took her home on palliative care. To everyone’s amazement she survived 7 years.
During these 7 years our little family grew, and we welcomed our second child whom was born healthy 5 years later. During this time, we endured many ups and downs of near death experiences with our first born. A lot of our time and energy was spent juggling family, work, in and out of hospitals, travelling to see specialists, and many rides in ambulances.
Although I would never give up any part of those 7years with our daughter, these stresses took their toll on my mind and body. Before and after the birth of our first daughter I lived with many diagnoses for over 10yrs. I had been to see Doctors for various reasons;
-PTSD, Heartburn, Nausea, Panic Attacks/Anxiety, Night terrors/ night sweats, Depression, Repetitive back injuries and pain, Chronic shoulder pain, Cysts When I felt defeated I would go back in to see my Doctor and would end up with more prescriptions. The drugs never seemed to help, and in fact many times made the symptoms worse due to reactions I was having to the medications I was taking. My symptoms all started at a level 1(not that bad), and by the time I came in for Bodytalk these symptoms were at a level 10 (really really bad!). I had been in full blown survival mode, coping and ignoring the pain in my body. I had been “pushing” through it all, just to survive. I hit my “rock bottom” after falling down a flight of cement stairs herniating my L4-L5 vertebrae. I had gone through all the proper medical channels with my Doctor and specialists: Physiotherapy, Massage, Chiropractic, and even Spinal cortisone injections. No matter what I did nothing changed, nothing got better. I started seeing Krista for BodyTalk 9 months ago, after feeling like I had exhausted all other options. I had been experiencing symptoms for years, trying to heal from new and old injuries that just would not get better, no matter what I tried. I remember my first BodyTalk session. Right away I noticed a reduction in the daily anxiety and nausea I had. By my second session my heart burn was dissipating. I didn't feel the nerve pain that made my skin feel like there were bugs crawling on it, and the muscle spasms in my legs had stopped.
Continuing sessions over the last nine months, most, if not all of the above-mentioned symptoms have gone. I am aware enough within my own mind and body now to be able to have clarity around the way I feel, and what is stressing me out. I am now able to process my Stress and emotions in a healthier way. I find BodyTalk so effective that my whole family comes for sessions now. My 6 yr. old had suffered from night terrors for over a year, and after only one session with Krista they stopped completely. As a parent, I see the changes within our daughter immediately. She is now more aware of her body and mind and tells me when she needs a BodyTalk session. Over all, our experience has been life changing. We no longer feel that we need to live in pain, and understand now that we have a choice. And that it has always been ours to make. -Sara
