Article: REFLEXOLOGY helps alleviate pain.

Posted by on Mar 22, 2017

Research: Reflexology Makes a Difference in Response to Pain by Barbara & Kevin Kunz. 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...

My frustration with the ‘SUPERMOON’

Posted by on Nov 16, 2016

How I turned my frustration around. I woke up on Monday morning with a message from Facebook to say that there would be a ‘supermoon’ that evening. This meant that the moon would be the closest in its orbit to the Earth than it has been since 1968. Wow, news like that excites me. They also said that the next time this would occur would be in 2034. I arranged with a friend to climb the ‘rubbish hill’ in Raanana at 8pm so that we could be high up and have the most advantageous view to take photographs. It was all very exciting. Apparently the moon was going to be extremely large. Being a lover of nature I planned my day to be able to see it. I was in Jerusalem seeing patients in the afternoon and at 5pm I...

Second Chances – Reflecting on 2015 – stepping into 2016 with meaning

Posted by on Jan 1, 2016

Find meaning… Recently I was in Eilat for a wonderful holiday. It was so special to take time out from my busy schedule and just be. Each morning I woke up at 6am to go for a walk. There was something magical about watching the sun rise over the mountains while reflecting off the water. The air was fresh and crisp. The city was still sleeping. There was no noise. Just beauty and the changing colours as sunrise arrived, and me alone with my thoughts. At this hour, where everything was still, I felt so much meaning in my life. I was reminded of one of my favourite Logotherapy (meaning centered counseling) quotes from founder Dr Victor Frankl, “For the meaning of life differs from man to man, from day to day and from hour to hour. What matters, therefore,...
