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...

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...

Coping with Terror

Posted by on Oct 14, 2015

This week we have seen the escalation of terror and violence throughout Israel. I have heard many people say that last year when the war was happening at least we knew when there was danger as the siren was sounded and we could go off to our shelters. Now, the violence is on the streets without warning and this is scary. If you are feeling escalated levels of stress or tension please remember that a REFLEXOLOGY treatment will help to settle your nerves and enable you to feel more calm and in control. I came across this article that I thought was very informative and practical and I wanted to share it with you. I hope it helps to bring some coping skills and a sense of peace into your life.

What Shimon Peres said at TEDx White City (Tel Aviv)

Posted by on Oct 12, 2015

About the future and realizing dreams   Today I attended the TEDx White City (Tel Aviv) event. What a great day of innovative speakers. The highlight of the day was listening to ex-President Shimon Peres being interviewed. Firstly, the man is already 92 years old and carries himself with such upright dignity like that of a 40 year old. Secondly he is still so sharp and with it. What an inspiration. Not only that, he is so advanced in his Hi-tech knowledge! It was truly a gift to hear him speak. I think that by  the age of 92, one comes to a place in ones life of absolute wisdom. This shone through as he spoke. Here are some of the ideas that he share with the audience of about 1800 people! “The past is dead, it doesn’t have...

Rosh Hashanah message – Remembering our Center

Posted by on Sep 17, 2015

What’s our origin? I read a story that I want to begin with from Rabbi Perez’s book, ‘Leading the way’. A woman is sitting at the edge of the river where she sees a scorpion struggling for safety. The scorpion is slowly drowning as it battles. Eventually she puts out her had to try and help it but it stings her with his tail and continues struggling in the water. Again she tries to save it but keeps getting stung. After a while a passerby shouts out, “Fool, do you want to kill yourself trying to save that creature?” To this she replies, “Because it is the nature of the scorpion to sting, why should I deny my nature to save it.” This story highlights the limitless potential for greatness that we all have access to, despite adversity. On...
