Cancer Patients

“I just want to tell you what helped me from the time of my mastectomy surgery and chemotherapy. For the past 8 months I have been having REFLEXOLOGY with Devorah Kur once a week. I know that’s what strengthened me. Not even one nail fell off while I was having Taxol. I have an appetite during treatment (well this is not always the best.

Now I have 10 pounds to lose.) I did not get sores in the mouth and the tingling in my hands and feet were very mild. And during AC nausea was reduced after each session. And my blood counts were always normal. Devorah also taught me a lot about the right approach to my illness and how to think and be empowered in my illness, and to send messages to my body to overcome and strengthen the immune system.” Breast cancer patient

“My REFLEXOLOGY treatments from Devorah Kur whilst having chemotherapy really helped me to keep well and active through the process. Besides the physical benefits, I found that time spent in her calm and tranquil presence was balm for my soul.” – Colon Cancer Patient

“I have been a patient of Devorah Kur for the past 15 months. I have lung cancer with spread to lymph nodes and more recently was found to have spread to the lining of my brain.I really love my sessions with Devorah. I find her to be extremely knowledgeable. She always has a book on what I am talking about or has done a course or has been to a talk. She is extremely positive, calm and one always feels calm in her presence. When she is doing REFLEXOLOGY on me I often feel a little shooting pain somewhere in my body and always ask her where she is working and it has always been in the area on which she is working.This is proof enough for me. She is also extremely knowledgeable as far as diet is concerned.” – Lung Cancer Patient

I was diagnosed with a malignant tumor in my left breast in December 2009. I underwent a mastectomy in January 2010 and had chemotherapy from March to August 2010. Devorah is very knowledgeable and highly competent as regards REFLEXOLOGY . She works with confidence and a spiritual approach underlies her physical treatment. She is punctual and reliable. She works thoroughly and intently on all areas of the feet and hands, especially those requiring extra input. After each session I feel invigorated and energized and definitely less stressed. My hands and feet feel less tense after she works on them ,but over and above her professionalism and skill in reflexology is her overall approach to me as a whole being requiring healing. She introduced me to affirmations and encouraged me to continue to use visualizations to aid my recovery. She helped me get in touch with deep emotions and gives me support and positive feedback whenever it is needed. She gives excellent advice on nutrition and general well being.

One of the most important aspects of my interactions with her, is that she is able to identify my inner feelings and never pushed me to extend myself beyond what I was able to cope with emotionally, especially since I was often physically exhausted. There is always a warm, calming atmosphere during the treatments and the pervading atmosphere is one of acceptance and the feeling that we are in the healing process together. I have definitely benefited from my sessions with her, on a physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual level. –

Infertility Patients / Pregnancy

“I discovered Devorah and REFLEXOLOGY on my journey to become pregnant. Over the months that she treated me, my body was restored to a natural balance and my general health improved. But more than that, Devorah’s holistic approach ensured that I built up the mental and spiritual strength to enjoy the experience and keep trying. It is evident that Devorah has a gift for healing people – both physically and emotionally – and I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to be treated by her.” Secondary Infertility

“I started REFLEXOLOGY in my third month of pregnancy. I had developed  eczema on my hands and it was spreading up my arms. My skin was so sensitive that I couldn’t wash dishes or my daughter in the bath, or use any chemicals at all (shampoo, conditioner, cleaning products, acetone…etc). Within weeks I noticed the redness retreating down my arms and then eventually fading from my hands. What a life saver! Reflexology also kept me energized in my pregnancy and kept my feet normal, not like in my previous pregnancy where my swollen feet were like tree trunks.”

“When I first came to see Devorah, I was desperate. My faith and hopes in falling pregnant shattered following years of trying to no avail, and an in vitro attempt that failed. Within 3 months Devorah managed to do what no specialist could. Not only did she restore my body physically, she restored my faith that I could fall pregnant. I just needed to believe it. She taught me how to heal my body and to love my body again and with this came inner peace. No sooner did I have inner peace, the greatest gift of all arrived- my little girl. Devorah means so much to me. She healed me physically and spiritually and I am so grateful to her for that. She saw me throughout my pregnancy and as a result it was an easy and stress free journey. My weekly sessions with Devorah are my saving grace- I looked forward to each session. I will continue to see her for as long as I can as I truly believe that with her experience and caring nature I am in the best hands possible. Thanks so much Devorah- words can’t explain how grateful I am.” – Infertility Patient

“I have been a patient of Devorah’s for many years now. I have found her to be an extremely caring and professional reflexologist and healer. She has a vast knowledge of her subject, and continues to further her knowledge and learn new things all the time. I feel my weekly sessions with her have enhanced my health and well being,, and have helped me to cope with my menopause very effectively. I highly recommend Devorah as a reflexologist and counselor in the field of health.” – Menopausal patient

“I started seeing Devorah in April 2010. My first baby had died the previous October and I was still trying to come to terms with what had happened and was desperate to try for another baby. My periods were very irregular, sometimes having a 70+day cycle. Devorah helped me first to learn to see things positively again in my life and to try and accept what had happened and within 3 or 4 months my periods were more regular with approximately a 30 day cycle. She encouraged me to look after myself and to get my mind and body ready to become pregnant. By the September I fell pregnant and was overjoyed. I miscarried very early and again Devorah’s caring and experience helped me through the pain and to learn to deal with what had happened and to accept it before I could move on . I had both REFLEXOLOGY and some trauma therapy. I also attended one of Devorah’s workshops which really made me question areas of my life and was a really enjoyable experience, especially meeting others who were dealing with all sorts of things in their lives too. 10 months later and I am due to go into hospital tomorrow to have my baby. Devorah has helped me remain positive throughout the pregnancy, to trust myself and my body and to connect with the new life inside me.”

“I really enjoy our sessions and look forward to the treatment as well as our chats. I couldn’t have gotten this far without Devorah’s experience, understanding, enthusiasm and caring, and I could listen to her uplifting stories all day.” -VB, beautiful healthy baby daughter born!!!

“Devorah has been doing REFLEXOLOGY on me since before I conceived. I arrived at her while having fertility problems after 2 miscarriages. Devorah has not only helped me physically, but emotionally too. After each treatment, she ensured I left feeling positive, calm and excited. Her positive energy and caring nature is what has made this whole experience worthwhile. Devorah was always the first person I would phone when getting a result or after a scan. She has been an integral part of my life throughout my pregnancy, and a pillar of strength. The treatments have made me feel relaxed, rejuvenated and calm about my situation. Before I conceived, I thought I never would, and Devorah changed my attitude and assisted in getting my body perfect for the pregnancy. While I was pregnant, I had a constant fear that I would miscarry. Devorah has encouraged me to feel different and worked. It has been a fantastic experience.” – Miscarriage and fertility patient

“Being someone who often warned her children to “watch out for the Mummy Monster” every month, I was desperate to find any solution to my PMS and its ever changing monthly symptoms of moods, headaches and dream crazed nights. Going to Devorah has changed “that time of the month” as no longer being a danger zone for me, my kids and all those who came in contact with me. Gone are the times that I lock myself away at home for fear of a bad day.Having tried most things from plain old painkillers to acupuncture to Chinese medicine, I can honestly say that my sessions with Devorah and her magic REFLEXOLOGY have made a big difference for me. Thank you Devorah for being my salvation every month!”- PMS patient

“I was fortunate to have been referred to Devorah by a friend in the second trimester of my fourth pregnancy. I have a history of low birth weight babies and generally difficult pregnancies , so I began consulting Devorah for weekly REFLEXOLOGY sessions (and continued to do so until 5 months post birth.) I believe that the reflexology assisted me in giving birth to my first baby over 2,5kg. I also attribute my success with breastfeeding this time round to Devorah’s treatments. Devorah has a gentle, professional manner . Coming from a medical background, I found Devorah to have a large knowledge base and a great understanding of the connection between mind and body. Her holistic approach allows her to be both accurate and intuitive. I can with confidence highly recommend her to assist many more patients in their quest for better health.  Dr Mom – difficult pregnancy and establishing breastfeeding

“Thank you for the amazing role you played in the lead up to the birth of our daughter. You will never know how much you helped me. You were the most strong and available shoulder to lean on and cry on, and for that I am truly grateful. You are a master in your field and your knowledge got me through a time I didn’t think had an end, and look where we are now!” – Polycystic Ovaries – fertility patient

Kids

“Devorah has treated my 5 year old daughter for reflux, using REFLEXOLOGY . I found that my daughter responded well to the treatment. Devorah worked very well with her and was able to build up treatment to half an hour and she distracted her well, when needed. I found that the treatment helped her with her reflux and an added bonus was that she slept better at night.” – Child with reflux

“I’ve taken my kids to Devorah to help with their temper tantrums. She has a great way with kids and I’ve loved the chats we’ve had after being with her and hearing all the positive ways she has led them to think about how to deal with being happy, sad, worried and angry. I’ve seen an improvement in their moods and love the positive energy the kids can now draw upon when they are heading down the temper path. Thanks!” – Behavior and moods in kids

“My daughter had a problem with bed-wetting. We went to Devorah for reflexology for a few months, and it really helped with the problem.

We had tried other things before, and the other alternative was going to be long-term medication, which we were really not keen on getting started on.

Thanks to reflexology (and reflexologist) she can now even sleep over at her friends’ houses! Thanks so much” – Bedwetting Problem

Dear Readers: What REFLEXOLOGY has done for my ADHD. Aged 12

“Reflexology has helped me hugely in controlling my body. Before I went to Reflexology I was on a lot of medication which I really didn’t enjoy taking, and now I am on no medication! Before Reflexology I used to battle to fall asleep, I was worried and anxious about so many different things, and all thoughts used to enter my head which made me even more anxious. I was then sent to Reflexology and taught many methods and ways of how to be relaxed, calm and NOT WORRY!

For example: I used to think that in my big house, I was the only one awake, while everyone else was sound asleep. Devorah taught me that in such a situation like this I should knock on the wall separating my room from my parents room and then they knock back. – This calms me down a lot! I would really recommend Reflexology to everyone – hoping it helps you as much as it helped me! Thanks Devorah Kur!”

General ailments

“I had been suffering from vertigo and was at my wits end when someone suggested reflexology. I had tried physiotherapy which was helping,  but it is a very aggressive and unpleasant treatment.  My surroundings were constantly spinning and the slightest turn of my head made me feel unstable.  I contacted Devorah Kur and after just one REFLEXOLOGY treatment, I already felt like I could cope with life again. She treated me a few more times until I was symptom-free. I highly recommend Devorah and reflexology for anyone suffering from vertigo.”

“My name is Shalvie and I am 21 years old. have been suffering from chronic migraines since I was 13 years old. I have been on countless medications and diets. The one thing that has truly helped my migraines – be it the pain, nausea, aura etc… is REFLEXOLOGY. Within an hour of therapy, I am migraine free!” Migraine Sufferer

“Devorah came into my life when I was feeling tired physically and mentally. Using REFLEXOLOGY and gentle discussions we have, together, enabled me to grow and become aware of where and when to use my energy for positive things. Devorah gives me the feeling that I am being supported even when I’m not having a treatment. She gently encourages openness without intruding. She is warm and the environment that she provides during treatments is safe and comforting.I leave her always feeling as though I have learnt something new about myself or the world around me.I am so grateful that I have had the privilege to learn from her and to be comforted by her.”- Depleted patient

“I have been fortunate enough to have REFLEXOLOGY with Devorah for my many ailments. She is a very pleasant and calming person to be around and her passion and energy for reflexology is to be admired. She is a gentle soul full of compassion, understanding and kindness. She goes the extra mile to instil confidence in me and has helped with my ongoing ailments.” Elderly patient with Urinary Incontinence, Tinnitus and Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

“I wanted to express my gratitude to you. I suffer from Crohn’s disease and was in agonizing pain when I came to you with a blockage in my intestine. I have had these blockages before and was hospitalized. I had an operation a few years ago for a blockage and I have been in hospital a few times for the same reason.You gave me REFLEXOLOGY and after the first session I felt relief. After the second treatment I felt much better and eventually the blockage went without me having to go to hospital again. It is a wonderful feeling for me to have found a solution to my health problem and know that if g-d forbid it happens again I can come to you for reflexology instead of going to the hospital. Thank you so much.” “I have been Devorah Kur’s client for approximately 6 months. It is clear that she is an excellent, knowledgeable reflexologist who is intuitive, empathetic and spiritual in her approach. I underwent a total hip replacement, and came home with a very swollen leg. A couple of days after Devorah worked on me, the swelling went down entirely. Devorah is also highly skilled in providing emotional support and healing. She has an amazing depth of insight, assisting her clients with sage advice, as well as other techniques, such as visualization and meditation. She listens with an openness of heart and mind. I feel that I would not have healed so quickly from my surgery (without her help) both mentally and emotionally.” – Hip replacement patient (EC)

Mental Imagery

From TH: (panic attacks and trauma post unexpected surgery), “My experience with MENTAL IMAGERY started at a time where I was in a dark place and could not manage on my own. Internally, I was injured mentally, not physically. The exercises helped to clean me from within. I could really imagine myself going inside my body, healing myself from within, which no medication could get me to do. It taught me a lot about myself and how strong I am. Its an amazing tool to feel that I am cleansing myself from within without help from anything outside other than my imagination. And help from you! I got through what I was going through thanks to mental imagery and this tool you have given me.”

“Devorah is a master at listening to your story and pinpointing exactly which emotion or belief is at the root of your experience. I came to Devorah for help with long-held  anger and pain towards someone which no longer served me which had slowly taken over my life. Devorah quickly figured out where the anger was coming from and helped me release it by expertly guiding me through a MENTAL IMAGERY process.

After my session with Devorah I feel the anger has changed to sympathy and love. Now I can continue with my life without this chip on my shoulder. I feel like a new person! Thank you Devorah!” From Kyra Jacobs

Trauma therapy

“When I got to Devorah, I didn’t even realize I was in medical trauma. I knew I was in a bad medical loop and couldn’t see the way out. Even worse, I couldn’t talk or think about it without bursting into tears. Devorah helped me get through a frightening treatment experience. With her help, I realized events throughout my life that may have to do with my medical issue and finding the root of the problem simplified answers. With Devorah, I managed to get through such a difficult time in my life.”
