The Healing Synergy of Talk and Touch


  • Touch lets you get to the bottom of the question.
  • Talk allows you to understand its meaning.
  • Combining the empathic conversation with a gentle, curative touch is transformational.

The Rubenfeld (RSM) interaction method was developed in 1970 by its founder, Ilana Rubenfeld. He began his career as a conductor and gradually began to have severe pain in his back and shoulders. This made her take on personal research and self-healing. At that time, she received sessions of Alexander Technik, who were focused on helping her bring back her position and movement. But as she received this gentle touch, her emotions would surge to the surface, and Alexander's teacher was not trained to help her. So he was traveling around the city to New York to spend time with a gestalt therapist. But in her therapeutic sessions her emotions were not so easily incited. This made her start to combine this gentle touch with conversation to integrate the two systems into her body. The result was more than two separate units, so the term "synergy".

Rubenfeld The synergists are men and women who came to the same realization or "aha" moment in their careers and lives. They saw Ilana Rubenfeld or another "synergist" performing the "magic" that happens during a session. They saw, with their own eyes, the transformation of the client's experience in receiving this type of listening and intensive dialogue. This aha moment has brought bodyguards (masseurs, chiropractors, reiki practitioners, nurses and other practitioners who use touch in their work), psychotherapists (psychologist, social workers, married and family therapists, psychiatric counselors and even psychiatrists, used only customer conversations), hosts, businessmen, advocates, medical professionals, artists, musicians, and others. in the healing experience of becoming Rubenfeld's certified synergists.
