Grace H, Lafayette, CA

I cannot more highly recommend Teresa as a means to obtaining sparkling health and well-being. Teresa brings a powerful arsenal of energetic healing modalities to directly treat and heal the core health issues not just the symptoms. Releasing old emotions, outdated beliefs, and aligning to one highest health potential, she can help you attain true wellness through non-invasive, cutting edge techniques. Ms. Ohlson brings deep compassion, intelligence, kindness and outstanding healing skills to her practice. I have made incredible progress with my health challenges that Western Medicine could not remedy. Teresa is simply a miracle worker!


Dasha M, Martinez, CA

After a bout with pneumonia, I was having trouble breathing and had no energy for several months, barely able to leave the house. The doctors tried steroids, inhalers, and other things. Nothing worked. A friend who had been seeing Teresa for a few years recommended her to me. After a 15-minute BodyTalk treatment with Teresa, I could breathe deeply and felt positive and energetic! Teresa has also helped with several other issues -- a painful knee, neck pain, and kidney troubles. She has helped me deal with old emotional wounds and has helped me to feel stronger and empowered. I have recommended Teresa to several friends who have had amazing success with her treatments including my son, Jack.

Jack suffered a severe concussion in high school and was unable to concentrate. He had frequent headaches and couldn't take tests or participate in P.E. class for a month. After one treatment with Teresa, Jack was able to tacke Chemistry and Algebra again. His headaches disappeared. As an added side benefit, Jack's severe seasonal allergies diminished. After a couple of treatment, Jack has new confidence, better energy, and feels great!


Nina S, San Ramon, CA

Two words, BodyTalk works! When I met Teresa, I was in a dark place suffering from depression and anxiety. During the first couple of sessions, a lot of hurtful memories surfaced that I supressed for years. It was very painful for me to deal with but Teresa helped me through it with BodyTalk, and at times, with Reiki to help me calm down.

After six to seven sessions, I was back to my normal self. I couldn't believe it. I was feeling so good that I stopped going back to her. Big mistake! Teresa told me to come at least once a month for treatments, but I didn't take her advice. I slipped back into mild depression and before it could get any worse, I went back to her. After two treatments, I was feeling like my old self again. I don't know how it works, but it does work. Teresa is so caring, non-judgmental, and a very compassionate person. She helped me through a rough patch in my life and I am forever thankful to her. Also, I will not make the same mistake twice; I will continue to see her at least once a month for treatment because life happens. I was skeptic at first but now I am a believer. BodyTalk works!


Rochelle P, San Ramon, CA

Teresa has helped me reduce stress in my life, and become more centered. I am more in control of my emotions, and have a better outlook on life. She is truly compassionate about helping people! I would highly recommend her!

Lauren P, San Ramon, CA

My name is Lauren and I am 17. I have been seeing Teresa for 6 months. Before BodyTalk, I couldn't focus in school and was having a hard time adjusting to my new home since I just moved to the Bay Area. Also, I wasn't in touch with my feelings and body. In addition, I was having a lot of memory lapses throughout my day, forgetting homework, the day before, etc. With Teresa and her magic touch, she balanced my auras, my left and right brain and all the issues I had prior. It's been an eye-opening experience for me. I didn't believe that you could improve without taking medications. She really goes deep and cleanses all your issues whether it’s physical or mental. My grades have improved tremendously and I am more confident. Teresa is the only one I can thank for that.

Jenna S, Marin County, CA

Teresa is a gifted healer with a warm and gentle touch. She is highly skilled in several modalities, and weaves her knowledge together with meaning and wisdom in ways that best assist her clients and their individual processes. Teresa is intuitive and insightful, offering helpful reflections regarding energies that may be affecting the health and experience of her clients. She is a kind soul with a positive and vibrant presence, and she has the ability to create a comfortable environment and make all feel welcome. Her sessions are both relaxing and rejuvenating, and she has the ability to identify and work with root causes and delve deeply into the layers of healing. I would recommend a session with Teresa for deep healing, assistance with release and integration, and encouraging time for relaxation and restoration. Her knowledge always amazes me, and I always leave her office feeling better, calmer and lighter than when I arrived - truly a gift to be cherished.

Charley, San Ramon, CA - (BodyTalk and Reiki client)

I met Teresa Ohlson through my chiropractor about a year ago when she introduced Body Talk as a holistic segment of her practice.  I tried one session of Body Talk, and was amazed at how my body responded.  So I went back for another session, and another, and, well, you can see the trend!  

Body Talk helped me uncover deep emotions and memories I thought were just that--memories.  Body Talk taught me was that our cells have this amazing way of retaining everything we feel, experience and even deemed forgotten.  Once I uncovered these “forgotten” feelings, I began to feel renewed energy, less pain and a way to heal that did not need a doctor, medication or physical therapy.  It was all within me.

Teresa also talked about Reiki to me throughout that year.  I was intrigued.  When she told me she would be teaching Reiki, it was as if she opened a door for me.  I’ve always felt “different” than other people and sort of a loner in a sense because of my sensitivity.  I am a firm believer in energy healing, and had practiced healing on my daughter and my animals for years.

Reiki has changed my life in so many ways.  Mostly it’s allowed me the self-confidence to believe in myself and that energy healing is REAL.  Teresa is not only a fabulous teacher, but she is also an amazingly compassionate and understanding human being that can intuitively sense pain and confusion in others.  Reiki is truly the path to health and happiness in all ways—emotional, physical and mental.  It has allowed me to let go of people, memories and emotions in my life that were only causing me pain, resentment and anger.   I am forever grateful to have Teresa in my life.

Teresa, upon arrival, briefed me and promptly put me at ease about the Bodytalk treatment.  The setting was very pleasant and I felt an immediate calmness come over me.   Shortly after the start of the treatment, she further instilled calmness throughout the session.  I was transported into a peaceful state.   Teresa worked with me in a safe and non-invasive manner.  Her techniques are extremely relaxing and ultimately the treatment was very effective. Bodytalk was key to restoring my allergies and stress issues.  After each session I felt an overall general sense of well-being in terms of my mental and physical health as well.  I sleep much better too.


Cathy M, Walnut Creek, CA

Six years ago I read an article in a magazine about Reiki.  The article told how Reiki helped with abandoned and abused animals, helped to calm their fears, and helped them to trust again. That article sparked an interest and I knew someday I was going to look much further into Reiki healing. 

Just recently I decided that the time had come to find a Reiki teacher. I reached out and Teresa Ohlson responded. She suggested I have a treatment so that I could see what Reiki was about. She offered me a free 15 min session. I took her up on the offer. I told her nothing of any physical problems I was experiencing. She found and worked on every sore spot in my body on her own and I left that session feeling much better than I had when I came in. I felt balanced and free and the results of that treatment have lasted.

I signed up for her Reiki 1 class about 3 weeks after that session and I’m so glad I did. Reiki has made a big difference in my life. I feel very lucky to have such a knowledgeable and patient teacher to help me see and learn about the wonderful life force energy that is available to all of us

Teresa is a fine teacher. She is organized and very careful to make sure her students understand all points.  I would say she builds the understanding from the ground up by first discussing how Usui Reiki came into practice. She carefully demonstrates and explains the techniques and supports her students during their practice of those techniques. She welcomes any question at any time. She makes herself available, even after the class, for questions and practice with her.

I felt fully informed when I left that first class and I was ready to put into practice what I had learned.   I have since completed Reiki II under Teresa’s guidance.  I am so grateful to have the opportunity to learn and experience these teachings from a gifted healer and excellent teacher.

Marti A, Walnut Creek, CA

I had experienced stress and remorse over the loss of a loved one for more than a year.  Day after day I was so overwhelmed with grieving.

I tried to block out the words and hide from waves of pain.  As the masking effects of denial and isolation began to wear, reality and its pain would re-emerge. A friend recommended Reiki treatment.   After several sessions it helped comfort me through the grieving process. It allowed me to feel the grief. Not resisting it helped the natural process of healing.  Reiki treatment restored my body into balance and harmony.   Teresa has the special gift that helped me let go of my emotional baggage. I thank you for a wonderful experience.

Sandy P, Antioch, CA

I have had the pleasure of having Reiki energy work done by Teresa. I highly recommend her. The moment her hands touched me I felt a surge of healing energy. Her knowledge of Reiki and her gentle touch are worth experiencing. I wanted to learn about Reiki before meeting Teresa. Once I made contact with her. I was immediately drawn to her warmth and compassion. She taught me Reiki I and Reiki II she is a superb teacher. I live in Antioch and it was worth the trip.


Gina H, Danville. CA - (BodyTalk and Reiki client)

I would like to thank you for all the help you have given me through Body Talk and Reiki. As you know about a year ago I started to receive chiropractic treatment for a pain in my lower back and allergies. The doctor suggested I see you for Body Talk and Reiki treatment. I am so grateful I did. Teresa you are a warm, loving, kind and calming spirit. You have the ability to facilitate communication between me and my body. When I first came to you, you taught me that my body has a lot to say. Teresa you helped me with my headaches, anxiety, and most recently a bout of high blood pressure that I had never had before. You were able to help me clear away things in my past as well as emotional issues I was currently dealing with. Thank God for your gift Teresa! I would like to continue practicing holistic healing to keep me healthy. Teresa you understand me and my quest like no other, and for that I am eternally grateful. I wish you well and hope others find the same Peace and healing that I have. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
