Integrated Consciousness Bodywork:

ICB was borne out of the natural breakthroughs that occurred when Energy Medicine and BodyWork were combined for an Ingrated approach

ICB - History

ICB is the brainchild of Dr Eugene Botha and Shannon Betts, who each had been running successful businesses, individually, for decades.

Shannon started referring clients to Eugene when they got "stuck" in their training or rehabilitation efforts; and similarly, Eugene started referring clients and students to Shannon when they needed Bodywork. Both were increasingly amazed at breakthroughs clients experienced as a result of this more integrated approach.

The result? Integrated Consciousness Bodywork - where the Whole Person is important to us!

ICB is proudly led by the intuitive, empathetic and technically superb Dr Eugene Botha

With his love for life and his passion for his work, Eugene is most certainly one of South Africa’s most extraordinary BodyTalk practitioners. His combination of techniques, and treatment applications, allows for a very focused and results-driven Bodytalk session. Eugene has been actively facilitating courses, and running his own classes, in Herbal Medicine, Energy Medicine, Martial Arts and Philosophy. His passion for guiding his students and clients to develop their individual skills is profound and truly inspiring. Eugene aims at helping clients and students to grow in awareness and consciousness. A pioneer for promoting growth and development of The Bodytalk System in South Africa, Eugene worked closely with senior Instructors Olivia Pinto, Beverly Lutz, Wilma Grobbelaar and has received extensive training through the founder of Bodytalk, Dr John Veltheim.

ICB - How we came to be

Shannon writes: "On my own personal journey of rehabilitation after a serious nerve operation in my elbow, I found that I was achieving quicker, more effective results from combining the treatments of Pilates, sports massage, correct nutrition as well as regular BodyTalk sessions. Results achieved had previously been promised to me as “impossible” and I was advised to “get used to” the levels of pain I was experiencing. I decided to find my own solution and almost stumbled onto the effectiveness of a combined approach. I realized that a treatment concept and program, such as what ICB offers, can help so many people.

ICB offers an integrative approach to optimize functionality of the body, combining scientific understanding from a physical, dynamic, functional performance perspective. Interfacing the deeper aspects of subtle functionality of body~mind~spirit, enhancing health, performance and well-being. Utilizing a multi-level approach of physical understanding interfacing with what is now known through the science of quantum physics and energy dynamics that govern the deeper, invisible influences and governing the patterns of regeneration and manifestation of the body-mind complex as a whole. A holistic approach from a completely fresh perspective!

The goals then being:

  • to enhance the health, emotional health, performance, mind, positive environmental influences and improving the total consciousness of function of the body of each client
  • focusing on prehab (the preparation for surgeries/procedures and focusing on injury prevention according to frequently problematic areas, also preparing the body and muscles in anticipation for events that a person would be participating in based on what is known, that could possibly go wrong (thus enhancing performance, results, recovery, and shortening periods of recovery)
  • rehabilitation, general strengthening and total body conditioning.

ICB offers the opportunity to achieve total wellness from all perspectives incorporating the inter-relationship with the Body~Mind in health and performance."
