Published in the Jerusalem Post magazine: “What’s the difference between being ‘healed’ and being ‘cured’?”

Posted by on Nov 16, 2019

When I was 25, my father was diagnosed with end-stage colon cancer. His diagnosis pulled the carpet out from under me, and changed the course of my life. He was only 54 at the time, and by 55 he died! He was given a book by Dr. Bernie Siegel, Love, Medicine and Miracles; in my spare time I devoured this book, hoping to find a way to help my dad. It was a phenomenal read, and I couldn’t believe that a doctor was writing this way. He believes in empowering patients to be active participants in their healing journey. Siegel says, “It’s not about curing the disease, but healing the life; then the physical benefits come.” This was my burning question, “Was everything up to doctors, or does the patient play a role?” His book delivered a resounding YES,...

Make today meaningful

Posted by on Sep 23, 2019

Today is my birthday. Last night before I went to sleep I decided that I would make full use of every moment of my day. I would feel each blessing of the gift of life and another year. Reflecting back on my day, this is what I learned and what I would love to share with you. I woke up at 6:30am to meditate. This is something that brings me joy and I thought back to the years when I was a kid when waking up on your birthday was filled with exhilaration. I connected to this feeling and welcomed it into my day (even if I was turning 48 and not 8.) Sometimes we do things by rote because we do the things we do, but this time I first connected to the joy that meditation brings me...

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...

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...

ARTICLE: Bone strength during Menopause

Posted by on Mar 22, 2017

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...

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...
