Today I become 21- My Post Traumatic Growth (PTG) experience.

Posted by on Oct 18, 2018

Today marks 21 years since my father Harry Bloom died. I was only 26 at the time, pretty young to lose the most influential person in my life. Turning 21 is seen as a time of reaching independence and maturity. Today, it would appear, and it feels like I have arrived at this landmark. So to mark this milestone in my life, I’d like to reflect on how much has changed, and how I have come to ‘earn’ my independence and maturity. Wikipedia describes Post-traumatic growth (PTG) like this: Positive psychological change experienced as a result of adversity and other challenges in order to rise to a higher level of functioning. My father was the greatest ‘cheerleader’ in my life. From a young girl he always believed in me and built in me the ability to believe in myself...

How to heal after the loss of a miscarriage

Posted by on Oct 7, 2018

What can you do to ease your pain and loss after a miscarriage? For many couples having a baby is not a simple exercise, and there are countless obstacles and stages to pass before that baby is brought home. From my work as a Therapeutic Reflexologist, Bereavement Counselor, Logotherapy practitioner and mental imagery for healing practitioner, I have come to believe that the support women need on their journeys to conception and birth is a whole-istic (holistic) approach where the MIND and BODY are treated as one. We can’t just focus on getting the body right for conception; we have to deal with the emotions that come with the experience as well. Often the beginning stage of conception is filled with struggles and difficulties and many couples today are battling here. This challenge comes with lots of emotions, highs...

Research: Reflexology Makes a Difference in Response to Pain by Barbara & Kevin Kunz. http://www.reflexology-research.com/ press here to connect to original article New research shows that reflexology makes a difference in how individuals handle pain. British researcher Carol Simon of the Department of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences, University of Portsmouth, UK notes; “It has been claimed that reflexology is useful in the treatment of various conditions including such things as migraine, arthritis and multiple sclerosis. The aim of the present study was to investigate whether foot reflexology attenuates acute pain in human volunteers.” The study was conducted using an ice bath, a classic research method for studying response to pain. The study participant’s hand is immersed in ice water. Time is then measured to see how long it takes for the individual “to find the experience painful.” Next, time is...

Time to REPLENISH – Navigate your way into 2017

Posted by on Jan 9, 2017

Reflecting on the past year and finding time to replenish – 2017 Over this past year I have had the privilege to lecture on various topics related to healing & wellbeing, in Israel and New York, to run my MINDBODY workshop to women throughout Israel and to have one-on-one Reflexology and Logotherapy (meaning -centered counseling) sessions with many different people with a wide range of illnesses and symptoms. I have also pushed myself out of my comfort zone and opened a new clinic once a week in the Kfar Saba Yeroka Mall on the 11th floor with breathtaking views. My goal here is to speak more Hebrew and work more with Hebrew speaking patients.  I’ll be honest, its scary to do something new, but I’m pushing ahead. It is my passion to work with people accompanying them on their journey to health...
