  • Combining empathic talk with gentle, healing touch is transformational.

The Rubenfeld Synergy Method (RSM) was developed in the 1970’s by its founder, Ilana Rubenfeld. She began her career as a conductor and gradually began having intense pain in her back and shoulders.

Art healing is a term that is applied to any art form used in healing and is a relatively new concept in western society. Only in the last 20 years have doctors, therapists, and other medical types begun to acknowledge and study the therapeutic effects of creativity and art-creation upon the physical, emotional, and mental well being of individuals.

According to Cathy Malchiodi, in her book “The Art Therapy Source-book”, art therapy is “…based on the idea that the creative process of art-making is healing and life enhancing, and that it is a potent form of communication. It utilizes the creative process… to promote growth, self-expression, emotional reparation, conflict resolution and transformation.”

Art healing is a hands-on, self-help approach to overcoming obstacles in one’s life. It’s not enough to read articles or books on art healing, you must participate in the creative process for it to be beneficial.
