Recent research in neuroscience has shown the powerful interplay between the brain and body-the body and the mind. Neural receptor sites throughout the body process our experiences. Our feelings, thoughts, and sensations are neurally connected, moving within the frame of the body.
When our experiences are painful or traumatic, we may need and desire help to separate our sense of self from the physical pain and emotional distress caused by the experience.
The Rubenfeld Synergy Method® utilizes talk, movement, awareness, imagination, humor and compassionate touch as gateways—contacting and melting frozen tensions and emotions, freeing the body from pain and the mind from suffering.
The synergist is trained to process with the client both the language of the body and verbal dialogue, thus addressing both the unconscious and the conscious mind simultaneously. This profound capability allows problems such as central sensitivity, trauma reactions, pain, unrecognized limiting beliefs, and suppressed memories to be mitigated, even resolved without pathologizing these issues.
Some of the most common reasons clients seek RSM® include: injuries that are not responding well to treatments, traumatic injuries/adverse events, surgery, chronic pain, sports injuries, anxiousness/feeling overwhelmed, emotional distress, back pain, fibromyalgia, and a desire to avoid or minimize the use of medications.
Benefits of RSM include:
Improved mobility and functioning
- Relief and/or reduction of pain
- Return of inner calm, joy, freedom
- Improved self-image
Some Client Comments:
“Susan is a rare combination of expert practitioner, gifted healer, and gentle presence. After a shoulder injury I had limited success with medication……I was thrilled with the results. I highly recommend the Rubenfeld Synergy® Method as a complement to traditional medicine.” -Doris Kilgore, Ed.D, Behavioral Health Educator
“I cut my finger to the bone on a saw. After getting it treated at the hospital, I was in tremendous pain even with the pain medication. After thirty minutes with Susan, the pain stopped.” -David Dwyer
“I went to Susan after an automobile accident. Fear, anxiety and doubt had lodged in my body making recovery slow. The RSM process helped me to identify these feelings and to reconnect the parts of my body, allowing me to recapture both the joy of movement and a feeling of safety. …The changes seem subtle at the time, but have a profound influence and have been lasting. I recommend her wholeheartedly!” –Linda Pucci, Ph.D
