International Speaker. BodyTalk Instructor and Practitioner
Irene Khor is an international speaker on wholistic healthcare. She is also a regional expert in The BodyTalk System™, a wholistic therapy that can treat the “root cause” of a number of combinations of physical, mental, spiritual and emotional health challenges.
Since 2005, Irene has been conducting private BodyTalk sessions and teaching self-care and self-discovery courses. Her experiences allow her to help clients improve their physical & emotional health, so they can ultimately find a clear direction in life and how to go about achieving it.
She has been invited twice, by Kuam News (USA), Guam's Official News Network, to share her perspective on certain physical symptoms being a psychosomatic (aggravated by emotional stress) which can be addressed wholistically with BodyTalk, to heal the symptoms at its root, and not merely medicating to relieve the symptoms.
She is grateful for the opportunity to be invited by LetsMov8, an Active Enabler Programme (AEP) by ActiveSG in 2020.
To contribute by teaching a simple Self-help Technique, that helps with calming the brain especially during times of extreme stress when we're in the midst of a worldwide pandemic. So we can snap-out instantly from drowning in mental and emotional stress unconsciously.
She is also a certified Trainer for the BodyTalk Access, BodyTalk Fundamentals, BodyTalk Fundamentals Integration, MindScape and Destiny Compass workshops. She has taught in Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, Hong Kong, China and even the United States of America (USA).

Why she started her journey?
How The Journey Begins
Not a lot of people are fortunate to know where they are going in life. Despite Irene’s impressive credentials, she started her journey to self-discovery with humble beginnings.
Struggling with her health issues since the 1990s, she had intense menstrual cramps, causing excruciating pain that lasts three to four, every month. The doctors could not get to the root cause of the problem and could only prescribe more potent painkillers.
However, taking painkillers only alleviate the symptoms. It would not solve the root of the problem as the cause was unknown.
For more than 15 years, the pain was a constant companion. Every month, her monthly cocktail of drugs got stronger and heavier. At the peak of the condition, she needed close to 2,000mg of painkillers and muscle relaxants, just to make it bearable. She had to take medical leave as she could not leave the house.
Those were the days (before) BodyTalk
She started to seek alternative treatments, such as health supplements, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and traditional herbal remedies. Some of these herbs even required her to pound, brew, and drink them with hot water!
However, none of these alternative methods worked for her. Over time, this started affecting Irene’s career as an accountant, as well as her quality of life.
She started to work in more time-flexible jobs, with self-improvement companies. They taught subjects such as Neural-Linguistic Programming (NLP), and there's where she first heard of BodyTalk from a public seminar presented by Marcio Ribeiro, as an invited guest speaker.
Irene's First Encounter with BodyTalk
Marcio Ribeirio, the founder of Awakening Touch Pte Ltd, conducted a presentation back in 2004. Like most people, Irene felt that The BodyTalk SystemTM sounded too good to be true. She did not allow herself to get too hopeful. After all, more than a decade of seeking treatment had disheartened her, but she refused to give up.
What is the worst thing that could happen if she went ahead?
She learnt that the BodyTalk sessions were non-invasive, so at most, experiencing one would be a financial loss.
But what if it worked? The 15 years of constant monthly pain could go away without taking any medication, herbs or surgical procedure.
She took a leap of faith, by volunteering herself in a demo session during the presentation and thereafter book an appointment for a private consult with Marcio.
First BodyTalk Encounter
The BodyTalk Treatment
At the end of the first BodyTalk session, Irene felt some improvement as the pains were more bearable. At the end of the third month and the third BodyTalk session, the problem was manageable such that she could finally do without painkillers that month!
What made such a huge difference, especially when so many different approaches couldn’t help her?
Marcio, the BodyTalk practitioner, discovered the 15 years of constant pain were linked to her relationship with her parents. All her life, Irene was actively sought validation, and this manifested through a physical ailment.
This subconscious need to seek approval from authority figures in her life resulted in a vicious cycle where Irene strived to get recognition from her bosses, at the expense of her health. The stress from work manifested into physical ailments, which took time away from her career.
She saw herself in a different light after that year of treatment. Instead of seeking external validation, she started to seek acceptance from within, leading her to her next journey in life.

From 2018, she embarked on expanding her knowledge in Chinese metaphysics with Dato' Joey Yap, for she saw the vast potential of integrating Qimen Dunjia's Destiny Analysis and Strategic Execution with her existing repertoire of quantum-physics applications.

Walk the Talk
Irene believes that besides continuous learning, it is equally important (If not more important) for healthcare providers to be receiving healing themselves, regularly.
Being a believer of what she teaches, Irene gets regular sessions from the Founder of BodyTalk SystemTM himself, Dr. John Veltheim as well as other BodyTalk Instructors.
