Power In Your Hands

In part one of this description of a typical Rubenfeld Synergy session, I covered the welcome at the start of the session, the talking in chairs, and moving the client to the table.  In this second half, I will discuss the portion of the session that takes place on the table. Again, we are talking […]

The lovely Melanie Bowen of the Mesothelioma Cancer Alliance Blog contacted me not too long ago, wanting to guest post in this space about the power of healing touch to help cancer patients.  While this article is specifically about massage therapy, I have also known patients to get a lot of benefit out of Rubenfeld […]

Following on the last principle that pleasure needs to be supported in order to balance pain, this principle focuses directly on humor as an especially key type of pleasure.  Besides being a talented musician and a gifted healer, Ilana Rubenfeld has always been something of a cutup, and throughout her life has used humor as […]

(Part 2 is here.) The more I talk to people, and the more I write on this topic, the more I find that people tend to have trouble wrapping their minds around what Rubenfeld Synergy is, and what kind of experience they will have if they come and see me.  Offering six 25-minute sample sessions […]

This was more awesome than I imagined it would be. Synergy sessions are generally […]

Today’s gotten away from me a little bit (isn’t that the way so much more with summer days than any other kind…?), as I’m getting ready to open a show in Providence tonight!  So I will be bringing you the next RSM principle as promised, but not until tomorrow. My apologies, but here’s hoping you […]

This weekend, the Boston Theosophical Society will be hosting their Weekend of Healing and Insight.  This is a weekend-long event in Arlington, MA, where Reiki folks, reflexologists, massage therapists, energy healers, and other hands-on types will be at hand, volunteering their time and giving 25-minute sessions.  Each session costs you $20, which goes to support […]
