Innovate Integrative Therapy Brings Results

The Rubenfeld Synergy Method (RSM) is a powerful and proven healing modality with a 50-year history of using the wisdom of the body to provide transformational healing. Combining intentional, respectful, listening touch with verbal processing creates a dynamic integration of body, mind, emotions, and spirit.

Practitioners of RSM, known as Rubenfeld Synergists, address a wide variety of physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual ailments by listening to the wisdom of the body. Both client and synergist then process and use the body’s wisdom in a practical way to resolve underlying issues and create lasting change.

The Rubenfeld Synergy Method was developed by Ilana Rubenfeld, a musician seeking her own balance and healing. In the 1960s, hours of practicing conducting at Juilliard in New York City resulted in debilitating back pain that affected her ability to move.

Rubenfeld studied the F. M. Alexander Technique, Awareness Through Movement with Moshé Feldenkrais and gestalt therapy with Fritz and Laura Perls. Weaving these processes into an integrative whole, she created the Rubenfeld Synergy Method, which combines awareness through respectful, listening touch and the verbal processing of what is happening in the now.
