Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) About the Ora Golan Center
How many people have been treated with this treatment?
Tens of thousands of people, worldwide.
Is muscle resistance related to physical strength or conditioning?
No. Testing muscular resistance identifies any muscle’s ability to ‘lock and stay strong’ against pressure exerted against that particular muscle. This test is adapted to each patient individually and does not test for strength or ability. This test enables the therapist to get important information about the patient’s physical condition and any emotionally charged issues the patient may have. An emotionally charged issue will cause a strong muscle to be temporarily (a few seconds) weak.
What is the success rate for this technique?
The success rate for Allergenic Neutralization Treatment is 85%.
What is considered a success?
A successful outcome is when a patient reports improved functioning and a lessening of fears and anxieties. Before and after therapy the therapist enquires about all ailments and difficulties. Success is accepted as a drop in the intensity of the complaints, how often they recur and for how long they persist. On most occasions success is immediately noticeable, although, from time to time change and improvement may take a while to manifest themselves. One of the reasons for this can be, for example, apprehension from change or criticism which prevents the patient from making progress.
Why does the technique focus on failure, competition and success?
A lot of effort was invested in developing and fine-tuning Allergenic Neutralization Treatment. During the development process Dr. Ora Golan reached the conclusion that the treatment of failure, competition and success is essential to the well-being of our emotional system. Treatment enforces the balance, strength and invigoration of said system, in addition to solving many problems that do not seem directly related to failure, competition or success. In actual fact these three components, failure, competition and success, affect every aspect of our lives. Failure is whatever does not work out for you in your life; be it personal, inter-personal, professional, social, academic or financial.
Can treatment help in aviophobia (flight anxiety, i.e. fear of flying)?
Yes. Flight anxiety is only one of a whole range of failures. It is a considered a failure because you fail to function as per your expectations and let your fear define your behaviour. Sometimes the need arises for a few isolated treatments in order to focus on, and neutralize, this particular fear.
Can treatment help a fear of driving?
Yes. As is the case with aviophobia, fear of driving is also a failure to conduct oneself and be independently mobile. Occasionally, an additional, small number, of sessions may be needed in order to focus on, and neutralize, this particular fear.
When is it inadvisable to undergo treatment?
People who are exhausted, non-functional, currently undergoing medical treatment, unstable, or who are at a loss in defining themselves, are advised not to undergo this treatment.
If I take anti-depressant or anti-anxiety prescription drugs, can I undergo therapy?
Yes, but only if you are stabilized by means of these drugs. If you have just begun treatment, or have just changed prescription, Dr. Golan’s advice is to postpone treatment until you are stabilized. Medication does not neutralize emotional loads but enables us to function better while under the influence of the load.
Why are four-five meetings needed?
At each session we treat a different aspect of failure, competition and success. Treatment will help each individual to fulfill his or her potential by being more effective, more focused, with sharper senses, more creative and, despite all of the above, more relaxed with a better quality of life.
Do some situations require more than 4 sessions?
There are occasions where the advance in treatment is slower than average due to emotional overload. This situation becomes apparent during treatment, thus prolonging therapy by more than 4 sessions. Often, during the course of therapy, a patient will request treatment for other, additional, issues, facilitating more sessions than originally planned.
Is the treatment dangerous?
No. Treatment is safe, effective, focused and precise with an 85% success rate. The worst case scenario will be no improvement at all.
Is payment required only for successful treatment?
No. Patients pay in advance, before they begin treatment. We have an 85% success rate; therapy has helped, and continues to help, thousands of people the world over. Many patients, after having gone through therapy, have undergone significant change in their lives, something they say they are grateful for.
Is therapy recommended for children?
Yes. Children react quickly and exceptionally well to therapy, affecting their lives and futures significantly. The positive effects of therapy will follow them throughout adolescence.
Why do children need therapy?
Many children suffer from social pressures and exam anxiety, causing them to develop destructive patterns of behaviour like sleep disorders, anger, fear and social problems to name a few. Therapy is recommended as a preventive measure.
Is therapy recommended for the whole family?
Yes, stress and emotional loads within the family circle will be relieved if the family as a whole, parents and children, attend therapy. Furthermore, treatment of the adults has a positive influence on the children as they tend to emulate the positive manner in which their parents handle stress. When the parents are effective, focused, relaxed and less weary their children tend to internalize this behaviour. This positive influence is one of the most wonderful presents that parents can bestow upon their children.
Is there a conflict of interests when family relations, or co-workers, who have tense relationships with each other, are treated by the same therapist?
No, treatment is individual and its purpose is to identify, focus and neutralize the emotional loads of each person, regardless of where, why or what brings about the tension. Most probably, tension is created as a result of the emotional loads that each individual carries within himself.
Will Dr. Ora Golan treat me?
Therapy will be carried out by Dr. Golan’s certified assistants, who are all under her supervision.
How were Dr. Golan’s assistants certified?
Each one of Dr. Golan’s qualified assistants has been trained by her for 130 hours and they have all successfully passed their final exams.
Can therapy help me lose weight?
Occasionally, obesity is a failure to lose weight. Therapy does not focus on weight loss but on the failure to compete and succeed. Treatment can neutralize loads and emotional barriers that prevent the patient from completing the process of steadily losing weight and keeping up a healthy way of life.
Can emotional load elimination help with issues not related to failure, competition or success?
Yes, but first the patient must have 4 sessions of emotional load elimination therapy to cope with failure, competition and success. Failure includes everything that the patient has not succeeded in doing, and is therefore manifested in all walks of life. This treatment is the essential building block of the emotional system and, therefore, can solve a wide host of varied problems – opening a wide vista of opportunities throughout the patients’ life.
