What If Pain Could Be Your Ally?
In sports, you train your body through repetition. The repetition develops muscle memory which allows you to perform a task (like riding a bike, or shooting a basket) with little conscious effort. In life, your belief systems, your experiences, and your memories also create patterns in your body affecting how you move through the world.
Your body is the keeper of your unique story. Your movements and posture reflect the conscious and unconscious aspects of who you are and how you feel. This makes the body an invaluable tool in healing. In the craziness of life, pain is often a wakeup call. It creates an awareness that we need to stop, change directions, or move differently. With awareness comes choice, and with choice comes empowerment and healing. One powerful pathway to awareness is Rubenfeld Synergy. Rubenfeld Synergy uses talk and gentle touch to help you access the body’s wisdom and utilize the awareness that develops to generate new options for how to move though life.

Hypnosis: Use it on anything
by Delia Nessim, MS
Clinical hypnosis is not just for weight loss or smoking cessation. More and more people are realizing that since the subconscious seems to be running the show, it behooves us to get in there and have some say over where it’s leading our life. The motto of the national guild of hypnotists says, “We help ordinary, everyday people with ordinary, everyday problems of all kinds.”
How does it work, you might ask?
Well, the subconscious mind is good at recognizing patterns and speeding things up by jumping to conclusions. This way, the things we do routinely get done quickly and easily without troubling the conscious mind. For example, I used to drive a car with a stick shift. At first, it took concentration and coordination to learn to press down on the clutch and shift gears. After a while my subconscious took over and I hardly thought about it. Then when I drove an automatic car and I prepared to stop, my left foot instinctively looked for something to press down on. After slamming on the brakes a few times, I realized that my conscious mind had to be activated to remind me that there was no clutch and my left foot could just relax and enjoy the ride.
