Patients Tell Their Stories…
My name is Vicki Hall. I have been a professional basketball player for 14 years. In these 14 years I’ve had many injuries and have seen many doctors.
In my professional teams they have the standard doctor and orthopedist. While getting treatment for these injuries I got better, but it took a long time and
always left some lingering pain.This is when I decided to turn to alternative medicine
I’ve seen over 20 different chiropractors and osteopaths, but there is one that I’ve found that rises above everyone. She takes her
profession as seriously as I take mine. After every season, no matter where in the world, I always finish the season in Israel.
Her name is Doctor Ora Golan, and in my opinion, she is the best. She is a true genius in her field. I’ve had many injuries that no
one could help me with, but she did.
For example: I’ve had plantar fasciitis (pain on the heal of the foot that could be equaled to walking on glass) a torn
hamstring (that had lingering effects and continually hampered me in sprinting) and a serious head injury (that stopped me from using
my shooting elbow properly). All of these injuries were left unsolved by others. Dr. Golan has solved them all. She has been a major force in my career.
Now, Dr. Ora Golan has worked with me on another issue: emotional therapy. This is a new technique that has helped me in the mental
part of my game. This technique has erased anxiety and negative thoughts that can overwhelm any athlete.
This technique doesn’t hinder your competitive nature or dull your senses, It finds your emotional blocks and reopens the pathways
(helps you get rid of your emotional blockages). This can and will enhance your performance and change your life.
Dr. Golan will find the emotional problems, find out where they came from, and then erase it, helping you to reset and sterilize the areas
that cause the problems.
Sometimes during games, I would have such a high level of anxiety I couldn’t perform to my potential. If, for example; the game was close and
went to the free throw line, I would experience extreme anxiety. Thoughts of missing and nervousness would overwhelm me.
After Dr. Golan performed her technique on me, the thoughts of failure and the nervous
feelings subsided. This allowed me to perform to my potential, and handle those pressure-filled moments with poise.

Today, after 6 years of intense milk protein allergy, about 2 years after Yaellinne started to eat
dairy foods, and about 18 months after she stopped reporting about itchiness in her mouth, today I got the results of her RAST test.
For the first time it showed the value of IgE to be 0.30kU/L, that is lower than the minimum criteria (>0.35kU/L) for an allergy lowest indication value
(Class 0 = no allergy). Thank you, Ora!
and - Kol Hakavod!
I owe you now a description of how we got rid of this allergy with your help.
I'll do my best and write it as soon as possible. You can always refer anyone who has milk allergy to us, and I will recommend your treatment.
Dash to Dvora and Ron,
My dear ones,
When I first came to the Ora Golan Center approximately three months ago, I was a shadow of my former self after simultaneously experiencing a divorce and losing my job. After the first treatment, I already felt a fundamental difference. I went from being a pessimistic, listless, fearful, and angry woman to a bold, assertive, and energetic woman full of life and vitality.
Please convey to Ruthie my heartfelt thanks for her miraculous treatment and her warmth and empathy. Ruthie – you are a true angel!
Thank you for the energy and the mental strength you injected into my body and my soul.
With great appreciation,
Dear Dr. Golan,
I have been a patient at the Ora Golan Center for some time now. Since then, I have been experiencing significant inner changes. I feel more open and keep less bottled up, and I am more direct and better able to go with the flow. I am even able to contain my wife…The most significant change has been in my sleeping habits: before the treatment, I used to sleep 5-6 hours a night and felt sleep deprived. The improvement in my sleep began after the initial treatments. Today, I sleep 7 hours a night and I feel great. Keep up your important work.
With much appreciation (and a kiss to Devorah),
To the Ora Golan Center:
A few months ago, I had a troubling experience which, in hindsight, I am able to recognize as an anxiety attack. I have always been a healthy person, and for this reason I initially didn’t know how to deal with the terrible symptoms. Late one evening when I was sitting at home, I started to feel as if the room was closing in on me, as if I was suffocating. I was nauseous, dizzy, and my body was trembling. I felt like I was losing control of myself and I didn’t understand what was happening to me. And when I thought that the first attack was a one-time occurrence, I was surprised and disappointed by a few more recurrences. My self confidence was damaged and I was like a shadow of my former self.
As a healthy person, I found it extremely difficult to accept the undesired changes in my life. When I went to conventional doctors, they dismissed me with a wave of the hand and thought there was nothing to do about it.
I came to the Ora Golan Center after reading positive reviews on the center’s website. I began treatment with Hila, who was courteous and professional from the very beginning. The treatment gave me insights I would never have achieved had it not been for the intensive process performed by Hila. I came to understand that my stressful pace of life had had an impact on my body and my soul, as had the fact that I had been gambling for years. I am pleased to say that the treatment worked wonders; the anxiety attacks have stopped altogether, my self-confidence has increased, and the different fears that were an inseparable part of my life have vanished, as if they never existed.
I would like to thank the Ora Golan Center and Hila, who treated me, for the change they have made to my life. My life has returned to normal, and my quality of life has even increased as a result of the treatment. Today, I am calmer, I work out, I eat right, and, most importantly, I feel great.
I am grateful to the Creator of the Universe, who enabled me to make the right choice of coming to you.
I would like to thank the Ora Golan Center for the emotional treatment with which she provided me and my entire family.
I would also like to let worried parents know that taking Ritalin is not the only way. I’ve found the path to a better, more pleasant life, with the ability to better handle all life situations. And all thanks to the emotional treatment we received at the Ora Golan Center.
As a result of the successful outcome and the many astonished phone calls from teachers and the school principal asking what workshop my son had attended, his homeroom teacher asked for details in order to send other children. She said that the evidence was solid, and that she would like to [undergo treatment] as well.
I told her that my husband and three children also underwent emotional treatment consisting of four brief sessions at the Center and have only praise for the place. It gave us the gift of new life, as well as the motivation and self-confidence that all people would do well to possess at the right level. What’s amazing is that in such a short time I have already begun to feel changes that have led me to the positive energy and strength deep within myself, making it easier for me to deal with all situations.
I am so excited that I am telling everyone! I know that today people are skeptical, but imagine walking into a gift shop and being able to fill your shopping cart with self-confidence, love, success, and other such wonderful things. I know it sounds too good to be true, but it is a great privilege – a privilege I wish everyone could enjoy. It is the gift of life.
I would like to send my personal thanks to our wonderful therapists, Hila and Devorah, who never stopped asking questions, taking interest, and listening. A job well done!
To the Ora Golan Center:
I made appointments with Dr. Ora Golan for my 14 year old son, who has some challenging problems. My son categorically refused to go, and I decided that instead of cancelling the appointments, I would go in his place.
I am far into my forties, and I have suffered from performance anxiety since I was 13. And by anxiety, I mean being completely paralyzed!
In hindsight, I understand that I was also suffering from a number of other anxieties that changed in nature over the years. These anxieties prevented me from experiencing many things in life, some related to social contexts at a young age and others to professional and academic contexts at an older age. In all of these situations, performance anxiety stopped me from moving forward. Ostensibly and on the surface, everything was fine and I always succeeded in my work. However, deep down I knew that I was not in the right place and that I was not reaching the full potential of who I really was.
I won’t go into detail about the story of my life. I’ll just say that at the end of the treatment (4 appointments and another 2 for reinforcement), I had the courage to make a presentation to an audience of 50 people whom I didn’t know. Moreover, when I was standing there, I felt confident and comfortable, as if it was not the first time in my life I had done it.
It was a corrective, cleansing experience that is impossible to describe – as if a layer of stones that had been keeping me down had been removed. I had also been experiencing many difficulties related to my son, and after the treatment, my entire way of conducting myself, my attitude, and my way of coping became calmer and more focused than ever.
I truly hope that I will succeed in bringing my son in for treatment and that I will be able to write a similar letter about his life. That is my prayer. If only I had come across this treatment when I was young, I have no doubt that my life would have been different. In any case, it is never too late. I am thankful for the opportunity I have had to undergo this change – quickly, and without any unnecessary effort.
I would like to thank Ora Golan and to send a big thank you to wonderful Hila, for her deep understanding and her genuine participation at every stage.
I look forward to additional miracles for my relatives and loved ones, whom I refer to the Ora Golan Center.
To Dr. Ora Golan and the Treatment Staff
I came to you despondent, exhausted, and shattered from life at age of 50, with the burden of life weighing on me. You rehabilitated me through a series of 4 short, amazing treatments using a method that is more effective than any other method I have ever known, and the results have remained.
From the very first appointment, I felt my original strengths returning to me, full of the joy and power I had when I was in my teens. I felt a renewed vitality once again flowing through my veins. I started to smile, to laugh, and to live.
Thank you for your wonderful method, your effective professionalism, your integrity and quiet modesty, and your great internal passion for fulfilling the dream of making the world a better place, filled with happy people without pain and emotional scars.
My husband is 60 years old and suffered from shell shock from the Yom Kippur War. In the past few years, he has experienced significant mental decline. He became unfocused and absent-minded and was not at all aware of it. After just one treatment, he was already focused, cooperative, and communicative and went back to being the man he had previously been.
Thank you for your professionalism and the amazing way in which you help people in the middle of their lives.
Dear Dr. Ora Golan and Hila!
I came to you in panic, alarmed by my despondent mental state, and we began the four weeks of treatment that significantly improved my mental condition and my functioning. Three days after the final treatment, I was attacked by a serial rapist one evening while walking a few kilometers from my home, and I was left both physically and mentally unharmed. Here is why:
The attacker knocked me to the ground, and that’s where the struggle and fist fight between us began. My senses were exceptionally sharp, and I did not fear for my life or what was going to happen to me for even one moment. The long struggle (3 minutes) ended when he raised his leg to kick me in the head to get me to stop struggling with him, and I threw my bag (which was on the ground) at him and knocked him off balance. That’s how I was able to chase him off. I continued to run after him, and I was able to see the car he got into.
Fully conscious, despite the bruises to my body due to the struggle, I gave all the details to the police the very same night, and I am happy to say that he was arrested three months later and is currently awaiting trial. He is an extremely violent man who committed acts of violence, rape, and brutal robbery against (unfortunately) many other victims. The police investigators praised me for my courage. They said that the fact that I had not been afraid at the critical moment and had simply put up a determined defense during the incident is what saved me.
However, the difficult part of the story is the nights that followed, when it was difficult for me to fall asleep and to feel safe walking around outside, even just a few meters away.
Ora and Hila, I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for inviting me [back to the clinic] around the time of the attack, with no appointment, and helping release me from the trauma in just one treatment! This enabled me to resume leading the everyday life I had led prior to the attack.
The lesson of my story that I would like to pass on to others is that a support system is the most important thing in such cases of trauma. In my opinion, it is the second thing that needs to be done, after going to the police. Even if the injury is unbearable, you cannot give up on the soul and on helping it smile.
To Dr. Ora Golan, Director of the Ora Golan Center
Re: Letter of Recommendation for the Ora Golan Center and Hila Rozensweig, a Therapist at the Ora Golan Center
I came to the Ora Golan Center on Kibbutz Nachsholim as a result of an extremely difficult physical and mental situation [in which I found myself]. I had been going through a tough period in my life: I went through a difficult divorce, and, at the same time, my sister was diagnosed with the horrible illness from which she died after a courageous two-year struggle. After she died, my condition got increasingly worse, including extremely deep depression and the failure of bodily systems. I didn’t know how I would get out of the condition I was in!
What can I say?
My condition has been completely transformed. I have become an optimistic person who feels that I can try again, and that even if I fall, I won’t return to those dark places. I have become a focused, goal-oriented person, and my joy of life has returned. Issues and goals have become clear for me, and I am once again forgiving toward myself and looking forward instead of backward.
I feel a strong need to praise the Center in general and wonderful Hila in particular. Hila is a woman with excellent people skills, empathy, patience, and understanding. Most importantly, her treatment changed me (and perhaps also my life). I highly recommend the Ora Golan Center!
Keep up your important work – it’s simply amazing!!!
I recently registered to begin studying for my masters’ degree, I am working, and I am continuing to rehabilitate my life.
I am a 38 year old mother of two wonderful children and had a career in a large successful diamond firm. I held a full-time job for twelve years, without a break. Working and raising kids caused me immense mental stress that found expression in extreme and disproportionate mood changes. After I was fired, my condition became extremely difficult. I experienced anxiety, confusion, irritability, and problems dealing with my own family members.
It was then that I understood that I needed to get help, and to do so quickly.
Approximately three months ago, while watching a television program, I saw the light at the end of the tunnel. Her name was Ora Golan, and she enabled me to see the light immediately following the first treatment. I felt a sense of serenity that was not momentary and that remains with me today. It is a feeling that I find extremely difficult to put into words: a feeling of peace and tranquility the likes of which I have not know for a long time.
The treatment made an extremely positive change in the way I act toward my family. My wonderful husband and I would like to thank you, dear Ora, for your devoted treatment. Your work is sacred, as is the work of your staff. You should be praised for it.
About eight years ago, a friend of mine referred me to Dr. Ora Golan. I did not understand the theory of Kinesiology, but I decided to give it a try and to start treatment out of a need for change.
The beginning of the process was the most difficult. I felt as if I was in the dark. As time passed, while being treated by Dr. Golan, I discovered my abilities and my strength, which did not allow me to give up, and was able to support myself and draw support from within myself. Dealing with the process was not easy. I mobilized a great deal of courage in order to persevere and keep coming back.
It took a great deal of time, but I started to wake up in the morning with less discomfort and I was able to do things more easily. I felt more complete. After a long and significant process, it was as if I returned “home.” I experienced many changes, I have a clearer awareness of myself, and I think differently.
Today, I understand that I made a long journey. Dr. Golan helped me discover the daring, relaxed, and complete new me. I continue to discover myself and to invest in my personal development. My choice was to allow myself to be cleansed of anger, to strengthen myself emotionally, and to continue developing more easily. I understood that everything was in my hands.
Thank you Ora!
A few months ago, I took a psychometric examination. As the period of practice exams that preceded the exam approached, I was gripped by an intense sense of anxiety unlike anything I had ever known. I was unable to sit in class and had to take the exams in a separate classroom. Even on a physical level, I felt as if my body was not functioning, I experienced severe stomachaches, and contending with the issue caused me restlessness and a lack of concentration. When I first decided to sit in the classroom with the others, the process required me to take a large number of relaxation drops.
My sudden inability to function led me to seek a solution, which I found at the Ora Golan Center. In the course of treatment, I discovered that, over the years, I had accumulated many additional blocks, which had been impacting not only my functioning during exams but my entire being and the way I led my life.
At the beginning, I had questions and doubts about whether a treatment that was entirely physical could have an emotional impact on me, but my fears and doubts were immediately dispelled. After each treatment, I felt the need to cry for an entire day, and I realized that I was undergoing a process of releasing immense emotional loads.
Studying for the exam became easier and more relaxed, and on the day of the test itself, I didn’t recognize myself. All my classmates who were following what I had been going through expected me to come to the test with a first-aid kit when, in actuality, I arrived calmer than them all. I managed to sleep the night before the exam, to wake up feeling good, and, most importantly, to concentrate on the exam.
Within a few weeks, this wonderful treatment took me to a place I never thought I could reach. All the fears that I would not be able to function during the exam, despite the strenuous studying, had vanished to make way for concentration, study, and success.
It was difficult for me to admit to myself that I suffered from test anxiety. However, the recognition of my difficulty and the decision to contend with it through treatment was one of the most important decisions of my life. In my personal life, I also feel as if a burden has been lifted and that it is much easier for me to handle situations in which I need to say what I feel, to choose to remain in places in which I truly want to be, and to aim much higher for myself.
I would like to thank the Ora Golan Center for the devoted treatment, the follow-up, and the care. I would especially like to thank wonderful Devorah, who treated me, guided me throughout the process, and provided me with such great help.
I recommend that everyone give themselves a chance to feel different, because it is possible…
Over the past few years, I have experienced a number of anxiety attacks, which have harmed my nighttime sleeping habits. After extended psychological treatment that failed to solve the problem, I decided to go to Ora Golan’s clinic. After only five appointments, not only did the anxiety attacks stop, but my self-confidence increased and I became better able to deal with life’s different challenges. In short, it’s a wonderful feeling.
I feel as if a heavy emotional burden has been lifted from my shoulders.
Many thanks to Dr. Ora Golan.
My name is Hussein and I am a law student from the Druze community.
I approached Dr. Golan after undergoing psychological therapy and many other different types of treatment. Unfortunately, none of them helped me. However, after going to her [Dr. Golan] – and, actually, after the first treatment – I began to feel a change.
Personally, I highly recommend that anyone suffering from social anxieties go to Dr. Golan, because I am certain that she can help them. Before going to her, I didn’t dare say a word when I sat in class. Today, I’ve forgotten that I even have this problem. I speak freely and participate in class, and my self-confidence has increased considerably.
Finally, I would like to dedicate a few words to others from my community who also have such problems. I know it can be difficult and embarrassing to consult with someone regarding such issues. I also know that it is easier to say that you have a backache than to say that you are suffering from problems related to social anxieties or anxieties in general.
My dear friends – take my advice: It’s a pity to feel ashamed, as such conditions are natural and will remain with you for your entire life. Still, everything has a solution. Why take it hard and do nothing about it? Don’t say it’s because you are ashamed. At first, I was like you. But with a bit of courage, things will turn out fine. Go to Dr. Ora Golan, and I promise you that your problem will be resolved as quickly as possible.
Finally, I would like to thank you for your help and your concern, which have put my problem behind me.
I have been wanting to write to you for some time now, to tell you how I feel and how it is related to the treatment I underwent in your clinic.
Recently, I have felt a sense of inner cleanliness like never before. I was suddenly able to do things unburdened by the weight I always feel inside – a weight that pulls me down and makes me heavy and devoid of energy for anything. Everything suddenly became simpler and began to flow more easily: keeping the house in order, spending time with the kids, and my relationship with my partner. It’s an amazing feeling – how nice it must be for people who live like this all the time, and how terrible it is to always live with this difficulty, which has an impact on all parts of life.
Just as I dared to begin to enjoy it and to say it out loud, I experienced a decline that accentuated the disparities, as if to tell me: don’t get too excited and don’t forget where you come from. I must admit, however, that this decline was different than those of the past. It was more under control and did not destroy everything.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for everything. I hope I will once again feel that wonderful feeling and that it will not be a one-time occurrence.
My path with Dr. Ora Golan began with the elimination of allergies. There, over time, I felt an improvement in my bodily functions, particularly with regard to different balances and more proper intestinal functioning. During this journey in the realm of allergies, I became aware of the possibility – presented by Ora – of the elimination of emotional blocks, and I decided to give that a try as well.
In terms of background, I am the daughter of a Holocaust survivor and a sister in a bereaved family. For this reason, I have always lived under a dark cloud tied to deep feelings of guilt – feelings that are of course not consciously rational. In addition, I have a tendency for excessive worry and, as a result, for a desire to keep hold of the reins of destiny.
After a series of appointments/treatments in the emotional sphere, I had no expectations of an immediate improvement, based on my recognition of the unique qualities of healing and of the importance of time in deep processes. However, as time passed, I began to feel changes in my daily behavior and the ways in which I reacted to things. The cloud that had always been there had started to dissipate.
As a result of my experience in instruction regarding behavioral issues, it was always clear to me that such clouds are not deeply rooted in behavioral psychology but rather more in the atmosphere of the prenatal period and the initial years of life. I was surprised when during treatment Ora identified the exact point in time at which significant events occurred during the early years of my life, some of which I needed to confirm with my mother, as I had been completely unaware of them at the time.
I would like to recommend your method of treatment, which resulted in an unbelievable change in our lives.
My 11 year old daughter Shai suffered from a social problem all through elementary school. She was an outcast in class even though she was the best student in class, pretty, and talented.
I searched for a solution for years, including meetings with the principal and the guidance counselor, but nothing worked. On the contrary, they maintained that her problems were the product of the jealousy of other students, and that nothing could be done about it. She was always alone, and she never had any friends over from class. She was extremely frustrated.
After the first appointment, she already emerged with renewed strength and more optimistic than ever, as if she had been relieved of a few tons of sadness and fatigue. Each appointment was short and to the point, and the next three appointments were an extraordinary experience for my daughter.
After the conclusion of treatment and starting at the new school, we discovered the extent of the transformation you brought about in my daughter’s life. She was now happy. She went from being a girl with no friends to a girl whose phone never stops ringing, who frequently has friends over, who is chosen as a class representative, and who is complimented on her beauty and her talent. She goes to youth movement activities and enjoys every moment. She is independent, energetic, and important to those around her. In actuality, you succeeded in taking my daughter to where she should be.
I strongly recommend that the education system adopt Dr. Ora Golan’s method of treatment for resolving the problems of children who are lost within the system. I also suggest that every mother who is concerned about her child – whether socially, in terms of anxieties, or in any other area addressed by Dr. Golan – go to her for a trial.
The treatment is short, not exhausting, and emotionally non-invasive. The simple and modest clinic is full of youth and adults alike from all over the country. I believe that Dr. Golan’s treatment will receive international scientific recognition.
And for that, you should be commended. Good work!
My name is Sagit, and I am 16 years old. The first time my parents brought me to the Ora Golan Center, I was full of doubts and fears. I was suffering from deep clinical depression, and I was completely despondent after psychological treatment that had lasted almost a year and concurrent medicinal treatment, which I began after attempting suicide.
About a week before going to the Center, my psychiatrist prescribed me a third new medication, after the previous two had failed to bring about a change in my condition. But I never took the new medication. The change I experienced in the course of a number of appointments is difficult for me to describe in words.
Before I came to the Center, I was hopeless and devoid of motivation. I didn’t believe that I would be able to cope with the depression. I was unable to study or eat, and I would burst into tears for no reason on a daily basis. I felt trapped inside myself and considered suicide. I did not believe that treatment at the Ora Golan Center would help (although it had helped my mother with physical pains and had helped my younger sister cope with anxieties). After treatment, I am a new person – free and stronger than ever. I love myself, and I am able to do anything I want.
I am writing this letter almost ten months later, when I already know that this change is not temporary, because I have never felt the way I feel today.
For me, Ora Golan’s treatment was a miracle. It has given me strength unlike I have ever known, and I have been using this strength to fight my depression. Today, I am able to deal with every difficulty that comes my way without breaking. I passed my matriculation exams, which I attribute to the treatment and the strength it has given me, after beginning the year not believing that I would even survive, not to mention succeed academically.
I would like to thank the Center and its staff, who gave me the strength to live depression-free, strong, and free of fear.
I have been keeping the following story to myself for quite some time now. It is so impossible, illogical, and amazing that I thought to myself – leave it inside your head, why share it with the whole world?
Some time has passed since the treatment, and I am now a different person altogether. For this reason, I see it as both a privilege and a duty to share this information and make it public domain, and to allow people to do with it as they see fit.
I am 45 years old and married with two kids. I belong to the middle class, and I have felt stuck my entire life. I have love, a job, and two wonderful children – nonetheless, I was stuck, as if something was stopping me from emerging, from developing, and from actualizing abilities that everyone says I possess and that I myself know exist. It was a terrible and constant sense of frustration that manifested itself in a choking feeling in my throat.
I came to Dr. Golan’s center out of desperation. I had already tried what everyone else had to offer: talking to a psychologist, different kinds of pills, and various techniques that allege to impart control and relaxation skills. But nothing worked. The treatment revealed an abandonment-related emotional difficulty at the age of 3 months in the womb.
I did not have nor had I ever had abandonment anxiety. The whole thing seemed strange and unrelated to me. However, my emotional system said, in an unequivocal manner: emotional difficulty associated with abandonment.
Who the heck ever abandoned me? My mother and father actually functioned rather well. I got a slap in the face from a girlfriend I had, with whom I was completely in love, at the age of 23, but that happens to many people. I couldn’t think of anything unusual in my story that should have been controlling my life.
On Friday we were visiting my parents and I had a few hours of quiet with my mother to ask her questions about my childhood – questions that only a mother can answer. I told her about the treatment and asked her opinion. She turned pale, and it frightened me. I calmed her down and we went into a different room, where my mother told me that I had been a twin! The pregnancy encountered complications and one of the babies did not make it. I survived.
During the rest of the treatment sessions (there were a total of 4), the difficulty that had controlled my life was eliminated. Within a few weeks, I began a new life course. Suddenly, many new options emerged. I won’t go into the details. The issue is behind me. The blow is in the past. As I already said, the story may be impossible and illogical – but it is completely true.
My name is Shani (the patient’s actual name is on file with the website editorial staff), and I am 33 years old. Ever since I was a girl – during adolescence, and actually until two months ago – I’ve suffered from an unexplained phenomenon: fear (accompanied by anxiety) to stay in an apartment or house alone. It didn’t matter if it was my parents’ house, the home of relatives, or my own home when I was living with a partner.
As a girl, we (my parents and I) always thought the problem would pass by the time I “grew up.” Unfortunately, however, the fear never went away. During different situations in my life when I was forced to stay alone, the experience troubled me a great deal and caused me unease, negative thoughts, unexplainable fear, the inability to fall asleep, and, in short, trying frustration.
I went to see a psychologist, holistic therapists, and a psychiatrist, but the problem remained unresolved.
A few months ago, an old acquaintance of mine told me that he was building amazing residential units for rent… The moment I saw the apartments, I asked him: “When do we sign a contract?” Indeed, one week later, I signed a contract and received the key to an amazing apartment. But unfortunately, I couldn’t manage to be in it alone!
Once again, I decided to get treatment for the anxiety at any cost.
I went on line, into forums on anxiety and the like, and, among other things, I came across Dr. Ora Golan’s website. What appealed to me were the words “a technique with 85% success,” as well as the sentence: “Most already feel a change after the first appointment.” I said to myself: that’s it, you’re doing it. You have nothing to lose – I wanted an immediate solution!
So, I made an appointment at the clinic. I signed up for a series of 4 treatments (at that time, I had already been forced to move back to my parents’), and deep down I told myself that if I did not feel an improvement after four appointments, I would cancel the contract for the apartment.
During the week following the first treatment, I decided to sleep in the apartment, and if I felt bad again… But to my amazement…I found myself in the apartment, going about life normally, not troubled, and not experiencing negative thoughts or anxiety. I was truly calm. I slept the whole night through and woke up in the morning feeling happy. The same thing happened the second night and the third. I couldn’t wait for my second appointment to tell Hila (my amazing therapist) what had happened…I completed all four treatments.
The change only intensified and worked to my benefit with regard to a large number of other minor but irritating issues.
Today (approximately one month after beginning treatment), my best friend is also being treated at Dr. Ora Golan’s clinic (needless to say, I referred her), and about a week ago (immediately following her first treatment and close to her second one) she told me about the distinct change in her! I also referred my fifteen and a half year old niece to the clinic, and she has also already told me that she is much more relaxed, happier, and patient…
I recommend and will continue to recommend Dr. Ora Golan’s treatment, because her clinic resolved a problem which many different kinds of other treatments and therapists were unable to solve for years
Many thanks to Dr. Ora Golan, to the amazing Hila, and to the entire staff – thank you so much!!
A job well done!
My name is Zehava and I am writing on behalf of my 14 year old son. We are residents of Eilat.
After some uncertainty, and after trying everything possible (psychological therapy, Reiki, and cognitive and homeopathic therapy), I decided to take a chance on the treatment offered by Dr. Ora Golan.
My son suffered from poor self image and a less than desirable social status. He is a bit chubby, wears glasses, and is quite intelligent, but does not excel at sports. At age 9, he began a slow process of becoming socially unpopular which continued to develop into ostracism and being ignored. The situation caused a great deal of frustration, anger, and tears shed at home, which also resulted in a decline in his academic performance. As a mother, I tried everything possible and was truly broken hearted.
I refer to what happened at the Ora Golan Center as a miracle, or [the product of] genius. Had I not been so desperate, I would have never have dragged myself and my son to Kibbutz Nachsholim four times. The trip involved travelling by plane, taxi, train, and bus. I have no idea how an entire world can be transformed in just 4 appointments, and if it were not my son, I would not have believed it. Four months have passed since the end of the treatment, and I have a new son.
Equally as important is the fact that my son has a new life. Not a week goes by without at least two friends either coming over or him going to their house. Suddenly, his Messenger and his ICQ are extremely active. At school, his homeroom teacher and the head teacher of his grade have been astonished by the social and academic wonder that has occurred.
I would like to express my gratitude, but I know that words sometimes do not do justice to success.
I wish all the best to Dr. Golan and her staff. I know you will go far. Even farther than Eilat.
Recognizing that many emotional patterns are often passed on subconsciously from generation to generation, my husband and I decided to consult with Dr. Golan before having children. The system Dr. Golan has developed for eliminating emotional blocks addresses, in a single session, multiple anxieties surrounding core emotional issues and eliminates them in minutes.
The results have been excellent, and their positive effects continue to manifest themselves in diverse areas of my life. For example, taking on new challenges at work no longer involves wasted energy and anxiety about how I will perform or what others will think of me, and interactions with certain family members are no longer emotionally charged (which is no less than a miracle!).
Once the blocks surrounding core emotional issues were eliminated, I felt freer to be me! I gained more clarity and all the energy that was being consumed by fears and anxieties is now being channeled into accomplishing the truer purpose of my life. Since then I have been able to accomplish the many things I wish to do with more ease, confidence and joy.
I am truly grateful for this gift that Dr. Golan has created! Thanks to you and to your wonderful staff!
My name is Amir and I live in northern Israel. I am a business man, and, as such, I frequently fly to Europe and North America.
Approximately ten years ago, I flew from California to New York on a night flight that included a layover in Denver. Such flights are called “red-eyes,” because of the color of the passenger’s eyes upon arriving in New York after a sleepless night. The plane was completely full, and all the seats were occupied. A cramped and suffocating feeling prevailed in the plane, as well as darkness. Denver had been hit by a deep freeze that required the plane’s wings to be cleaned with steam before takeoff.
During landing in Denver, suddenly, and for the first time in my life, I experienced anxiety caused by a confined place and a powerful urge to leave the plane immediately. It occurred right before takeoff to New York, and it would have clearly been illogical (and also extremely embarrassing) to start making a fuss and demanding to get off the plane. So, I closed my eyes tight, and could think of nothing but my own helplessness and loss of control.
I also could not escape the thought that I had a few hours of flying ahead of me until New York, and that although I was a paratrooper in the army, it would be rather difficult for me to decide to jump. As my heart beat wildly, I looked around and realized that everyone was trying to go back to sleep and that the plane was already in the air. The sign already permitted us to take off our seatbelts, and there was no logic to the situation with which I was so preoccupied.
Somehow, the nightmare ended when we landed in New York and I immediately started to seek a solution to the embarrassing situation. For years since then, I have meticulously checked the occupancy of every flight, refrained from flying at night, and avoided small planes as much as possible.
My general practitioner referred me to various doctors and psychological therapy, and the issue seemed to be behind me. That is, until my family went on an excursion to the Beit Govrin area, where, without hesitation, I crawled with one of my sons into one of the tunnels that had been used by Bar Kochba and his fighters (as part of a group led by a guide). Within seconds, the nightmare returned, and my anxiety again reached the point of loss of control. I informed my son (age 11) what was happening, and with the swiftness of a snake under threat we made our way out. The sense of frustration, shame, and helplessness I experienced was indescribable.
It was then that I contacted the Ora Golan Center and underwent the four-appointment treatment for the elimination of emotional conflicts. This week, a few weeks after completing the process, I returned from Germany and Austria. In southern Germany, I visited a salt mine that is located hundreds of meters inside an immense mountain, and the tour lasted approximately an hour and a half. There is no way to exit the mountain until the end of the tour, which included 50 people from different countries. Words are insufficient to describe the intensity of the pleasure and fun I experienced there. The anxiety became an experience. I am not a man of superlatives, but the word “thanks” is simply not strong enough to express how I feel. I am especially grateful to Devorah, who was my therapist.
I have regained total confidence in my ability to function normally in any situation, to go anywhere with my family, and to not be concerned with planning trips or vacations that are always accompanied by limitation and fear. At the Ora Golan Center, I went from darkness to light in every possible sense.
And once again, thank you, with all my heart,
I eventually boarded the plane and remembered your words: “When you are on the plane, you sit like a king, relax your muscles, and place your safety in the hands of the pilot. Your behavior will not affect the flight. You are not in control there.”
I would like to thank you for your help and support in dealing with my fear of flying. I came to you approximately two months before a flight I planned to take with my family. I have been flying abroad for years, but always with a great sense of stress and fear. This time, my anxiety regarding the flight was particularly intense. On the one hand, I was terribly stressed by the flight, and on the other hand, I decided that I had to do it no matter what happened. I came to the clinic to get your help in overcoming the stress.
In a number of treatments consisting of conversation combined with kinesiology, you enabled me to understand the factors that were causing my stress and how to contend with them and treat them. Also important was your gentle, pleasant, and calming approach.
I eventually boarded the plane and remembered your words: “When you are on the plane, you sit like a king, relax your muscles, and place your safety in the hands of the pilot. Your behavior will not affect the flight. You are not in control there.” The flight went fine and aroused much less fear. I truly saw that the demon was not so terrible. I therefore wanted to thank you for your support and help.
I hope I won’t need you again in the future. But if I do, I’ll always know where to go (Kibbuitz Nachsholim).
The truth is that fears protect us and keep us safe. They start being a problem when they control us and/or prevent us from doing things that we want or need to do. For example, what if I am a business woman who needs to fly out of the country frequently, but I am terribly frightened of flying? What is such a person to do?
There is a solution! And although it’s hard to believe, it is simple, easy, quick, and painless.
I came to Ora because of a fear that had remained with me since I was young (10 years old). One day, a cell of terrorists infiltrated us from the sea, traversed the fish ponds and reached the Coastal Road (the Coastal Road massacre of 1978). I remember that we, the children, were assembled by neighborhood and saw all our fathers with weapons, extremely tense and scared.
Since then, I’ve grown up and gotten married, and I still live by the sea (even closer). But when my husband went to reserve duty, I was simply unable to sleep. I was certain that I heard people outside my window and that, any minute, terrorists would break into my house. And when I was able to fall asleep, I would have bad dreams related to terrorists and then wake up and be unable to fall back asleep.
Before my husband’s most recent tour of reserve duty, I asked Ora to help me remain sane during this period. The elimination of anxieties worked wonderfully. Since then, I fall asleep like a baby every night, without hearing voices outside my window and without bad dreams. And if I do by chance wake up, I fall back asleep immediately.
Based on this elimination, I did many more. I have succeeded in ridding myself of many blocks and fears that have prevented me from doing things and from personal growth.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Dr. Ora Golan for her attentiveness, her professionalism, and her attention.
My difficulty was concentrating on my studies prior to a test. I would feel groggy, completely unfocused, and stressed, particularly during exams and the days leading up to them.
After visiting Ora, there was a relatively immediate difference: during an exam I took a few days after the treatment, my ability to concentrate increased, and I was also calmer and more relaxed before the exam itself.

When we began treatment, our son Yoav had just celebrated his sixth birthday. Today, however, I know that that the real reason to celebrate was the fact that our Yoav had been reborn!
It all began with the fact that I myself had experimented with NMR treatment (kinesiology), a method for emotional neutralization, and had been surprised that it had worked on me… I told my therapist about the hardships being experienced by my son Yoav, and by all of us.
At her recommendation, I contacted Dr. Ora Golan, who told me that the results that can be achieved in children are amazing. The truth is that I already had nothing to lose. I was willing to try anything. I felt as if I was losing all the fun in raising Yoav, my youngest son.
Life had simply become difficult and exhausting for us, with endless arguments. Nothing we tried helped – neither insisting on principles nor giving in on things that were not fundamental principles. When I gave in, the argument would only pause for 5 minutes, which would be immediately followed by endless fits of anger, as well as tears and violence. We would both end up pushed into corners and endless circles that we were unable to get out of…
The treatment at Ora’s required nothing of Yoav. It all went through me. We told her about our problems, and a few minutes later Ora determined that it had all started at the age of two months. His father was not attentive and really was unable to differentiate between crying out of hunger and crying for attention…His father was the primary caregiver at that point. He was loving and had endless patience, and he certainly had no intention of leaving his son with such emotional baggage. For me, it was like winning the lottery – being able to liberate my son (even without the presence of his father). We are divorced and have a fine relationship, but there is no doubt that the treatment was necessary and, in this context, has left its mark.
Half a year has passed since we began treatment. We underwent only four treatments, but we were aware of the amazing change in Yoav beginning with the first treatment. This letter is too short to describe all its achievements, so I will simply classify the treatment as a miracle and describe a few aspects.
Before being treated, any situation in which other people were around us was a nightmare. Yoav would become introverted and shy, would not answer when spoken to, and would not even look at people (whether he knew them or not). All someone had to do was turn in his direction, and he would cling to mama, or as we would say, to mama’s backside. After the first treatment, he began talking to people, communicating, becoming quite friendly, and venturing more than just a few meters away from me.
Yoav became a truly happy child. He now sings wonderfully and converses. He is like a flower that has bloomed and that illuminates those around him with the light he radiates.
Until two weeks ago, Yoav would not agree to have his hair cut by a barber or even to have one look at him. One day, he suddenly decided to have his hair cut by Ruthie! And he did. We were so proud of him and emotionally moved. We showed him so much admiration that he called his father to tell him that he had tried something new, that it was fun, and that he wants to do it again… These are things that may sound typical for a six year old, but they were not part of our reality...
Yoav began to amaze us and the staff of his kindergarten with the previously hidden skills which he now demonstrated: his exceptional artistic drawing, his unique ability to concentrate, and his writing and math skills. Perhaps most illustrative [of his transformation] was when his brother Amnon (age 9) said to him: “Yoav, you know, you have really grown up…It’s really fun to be with you, and I’m proud of you.”
During the treatment, Ora asked Yoav to do new things. He took the telephone, dialed his friend from kindergarten, spoke to his mother, and invited him over to play. It was like a mirage. What strength he possessed at that moment! It was hard to believe that this was the same child who had previously not communicated with others.
Waking up Yoav in the morning was a nightmare. It always involved an argument. He was never willing to wear anything, eat, or brush his teeth. The answer to everything was “no!” And under no circumstances would he say goodbye nicely. But angry and childish Yoav became a mature and independent boy. We can only attribute it to the treatment, as nothing else in our lives has changed since then.
Yoav says: “I was once really angry and I used to hit, but not today! If I really want to, I put my hand on my stomach and inhale, and it passes.”
The teacher in his afternoon day care program tells me that my Yoav has become a leader of the younger and older kids. It sounds crazy, for a child who had previously been invisible.
There has also been noticeable improvement in his eating. Loads of candy have been replaced by a need and a willingness to eat healthily, or at least to taste and try other things (he wouldn’t even eat pizza before) – not everything, but certainly a significant improvement over the past.
Yoav has learned how to occupy himself and enjoy life and to find the positive in everything. Our friends who knew Yoav before are amazed by the change he has undergone, and they tell him so. Some have also brought in their children for treatment, as everyone has things that bother or burden them in life, and we parents have the right to hope that our children will be freed of them at as early an age as possible.
During treatment, we worked on his willingness to go to a friend’s house and we have tried that too. Yoav is still not completely down with it, but we are definitely continuing to work on it.
While sitting here writing, I asked Yoav to tell me about his progress since the treatment. His ability to express himself and his discernment of the delicate situations both before and after [treatment] brought tears to my eyes. What maturity. If I had to plan an advertising campaign of before and after, like for Weight Watchers, I would take a picture of the big smile on my face…or record Yoav sitting across from me saying: “The treatment is really fun for me because it helps me. Ora tells me things and it really gets better. I feel confident and I am proud of myself. I don’t cry anymore. I have fun in kindergarten and with my friends.”
Today, I know that Yoav is on the right track, is dealing with his anger and his fears, is able to express himself, and is receiving substantial positive feedback and love from those around him.
I lack the words to thank you, Ora, for the greatest gift I could ever ask for, because I never dreamed it was attainable. You placed me on a path and gave me an approach to life that I share with anyone who is willing to listen and to adopt it for themselves and their loved ones.
I wish you continued success, in your humble and pleasant way. You are one of a kind.
My name is Ofir, and I am 46 years old. I work with a foreign diplomatic staff in Israel. For years, I have been living beside life and pretending. Everything seems to be fine – I have a wife and kids, friends, leisure time, and laughs. Still, something is always eating at me inside and gives me no rest. I finished high school long ago, and I am remaining academically stationary while those around me move forward. I was a brave combat soldier in the army, and, as I said, everything looks great from the outside. But to dare go to university – an ostensibly small and simple step – is an ability I don’t have.
This is because I lack confidence in my own ability to succeed academically. And as the years have passed, the fear has become fixed in place and continues to grow. What can I say? I think you’ll agree with me when I say that for a man for whom everything has worked out in life to admit that he has a problem of self-confidence takes a great deal of self-confidence. Another reason was my [not so] heartwarming memories from school. As a boy who was more interested in girls and sports than linguistic conjugations, it is fair, and undoubtedly no understatement, to say that I was not one of my teachers’ favorite students. My memory of their lack of desire to deal with me or to believe in my academic ability still remains fresh in my mind.
I came to the Ora Golan Center because I liked the idea that if the problem was not resolved within a few appointments, there was no reason to continue wasting time. I came to four appointments and said to myself: OK, let’s give it a chance.
My dear friends – I am now finishing up my first year studying business administration in Tel Aviv. I suddenly had many different options in life, and if you don’t stop me soon, I’ll end up a professor without even meaning to! Things have become sharp and clear for me and I am focused. Just as I was once frightened of higher education I now wait anxiously to go to class. I have an immense passion for learning, and, apparently, an aptitude for it.
It’s taken me time to write this letter, and I deliberated what it should say. For anyone with uncertainties, I recommend that you act already and not delay it, like I did. Dr. Ora Golan’s treatment is to the point, quick, precise, and purposeful. It has an immediate impact on the relevant points and makes difficulties irrelevant.
Good luck and many thanks.
