What is Positive Body Language



Positive Body Language, (PBL) utilizes various sequences of
acupressure points on the spinal column, cranium, torso, and the
extremities to communicate to the body/mind/spirit in a language the
morphogenetic field (the bio-informational energetic field of the
cells) naturally understands. Through gently contacting a series of
access points related to the chakras, the brain, and the meridians,
Positive Body Language offers the practitioner a safe and effective
way to encourage physiological, mental, emotional and spiritual
harmonization within the whole energy field.

Foundation and origin of PBL principles and practices

Each structural anatomical part and every functional physiologic
process, as well as the deep energetic relationship they share, are
major keys to accessing, embracing, encouraging, and engendering
wellbeing within the human being.

The healing map, of course, is not the territory. But PBL will get you
in the zone because PBL communicates with people on all 7 levels:
Energetic, Spiritual, Mental, Emotional, Physical, Vital, and Soul,
offering the practitioner of the healing arts a gentle and effective
way to facilitate the harmonization of a person’s body, mind, and

As PBL founder Dr. David Milgram puts it, “Many years ago, Grandfather
David, the first Hopi Elder I worked on, pointed me in the direction
of this work when he told me, ‘The Earth is like a spotted fawn. All
of her spots are sacred. Some are very sacred. Some are very very
sacred. You can go to the sacred spots if you go with a good attitude
and prayer and get a blessing’.”

Positive Body Language allows the health practitioner to work with the
most sacred access points of the human body to produce healing.

PBL Seminars are open to all practitioners of the healing arts, though
particularly to those whose minds and spirits are inclined to view the
the physical body holistically through the lens of energetics. The
“Metapracticum”, the hands-on part of the seminar, will teach the
Positive Body Language contacts for the 7 tonalities within each key
to self empowerment,  other patterned sequences, as well as related
soft tissue and chiropractic type adjustments.

Who is the Developer of Positive Body Language?

Positive Body Language is the life work of holistic chiropractor and
energy healer Dr. David Milgram. At a young age, David discovered an
ability to intuitively use hands-on healing to help animals and
people. Choosing the healing path of chiropractic over the traditional
Western medical model, in 1982 he graduated from Northwestern College
of Chiropractic in St. Paul, Minnesota, setting up his chiropractic
practice, Turtle Island Healing Center, in Flagstaff, Arizona.

Determined to continue learning, “taking the best and leaving the
rest,” he studied SOT (Sacro-Occipital Technique) direct from the
master, Dr. Bertrand DeJarnette, aka “The Major.” He also worked with
Dr. Joseph Runyon, a board-certified doctor in chiropractic,
acupuncture and cranial work and an expert in nutrition, neurology and
orthopedics. His next educational leap came with Dr. Donald Epstein,
founder of Network Chiropractic, learning his quantum-centered (rather
than purely mechanistic) approach to the spine.

During this advanced educational period, Dr. Milgram also experienced
what he calls “the training of my life” working on various Indian
reservations across the state. His first native patient was
Grandfather David Monongye, a Hopi Prophecy Keeper and Rainbow Tribe
Chief. “By 1986, I had about three dozen patients over the age of 75,
most of whom were chiefs of some sort. About a half dozen were over a
hundred years old. This is where I learned to go very deep while being
completely gentle.”

In 1989, he began what would be a 20-year intensive course of study
with Dr. Victor Frank N.D., D.C. in Total Body Modification (TBM),
integrating Chinese Medicine with the Western understanding of the
body, learning Emotional Erase techniques and ways to neutralize
environmental stressors on the body. In 1996, Dr. Frank referred him
to the man who had helped him develop TBM, the legendary
meta-physician, Dr. Charles Kuntz D.C., PhD., D.D.. “Upon meeting him,
I quickly became his apprentice,” says Milgram. “He taught me many
tricks of the old masters from years ago.”

Positive Body Language (PBL), a sequential healing system using sacred
healing points on the body to communicate to the body, mind and
spirit, is the capstone of Dr. Milgram’s almost 40-year odyssey,
integrating all of his work and education so far.

And the journey continues!
