Reflexology and Logotherapy – Where Body meets Spirit

Posted by on Mar 28, 2018

Recently I watched an inspiring movie called UNBROKEN. Louis Zamperini was bullied by his classmates when he was growing up in California. To escape their cruelty he ran from them which became his passion. His older brother had faith in his abilities and trained Louis to be a runner. In 1936 he became a hero for his country at the Olympic Games in Berlin where he was congratulated by none other than Hitler. Later on he joined the United States Army and during WW2 his fighter plane was shot down over the Pacific Ocean where he and a few of his platoon survived 47 days floating in a raft. When all hope was lost he was rescued (and captured) by a Japanese war ship and subjected to barbaric war crimes in a Japanese P.O.W camp in Tokyo. He was...

How to cope after the loss of a still birth.

Posted by on Sep 4, 2017

What can you do to ease your pain and loss after a still birth? 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, Mental imagery for healing practitioner, and incorporating emotional first aid for trauma, I have come to believe that the support women need on their journeys from conception to birth is a whole-istic (holistic) approach where the MIND, BODY and SOUL are treated as one. When there is devastating news from the doctor that there is no heart beat anymore, at any stage of the pregnancy, this brings about tremendous loss. When this happens in the third trimester or at the time of birth, women (and their partners) report...

ARTICLE: Bone strength during Menopause

Reflexology supports the hormonal changes taking place in the menopausal body and helps alleviate side effects! Recently ladies are asking a lot about MENOPAUSE. Here is what REFLEXOLOGY can do for you… Did you know that Reflexology can help you manage your menopause symptoms like hot flushes, insomnia and night sweats? It helps by: • Regulating the hormones and glandular functions of the body by balancing both the physical and emotional systems. This is done by working with the hypothalamus and pituitary reflexes (on the hands and feet), which restores balance to the endocrine system and can alleviate menopausal symptoms. • Reflexology calms the nervous system, and when it is calmed, sleep disturbances can also be lessened and anxiety and stress levels reduced. • The thyroid gland plays a large role in menopause, so when stimulated, we aim to regulate...

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...
