Intense physical training could be very hard on the body. Thank G-d Ephraim has the professional know-how to keep me agil, flexible, and in touch with my body. (He's my refresh button.)

As a licensed medical doctor with over 14 years experience, I've worked in a number of clinical contexts and met many complementary healing practitioners. I've known Ephraimm Jeffrey Geltman for about three years and have received direct hands-on body work treatment from him. I've also observed him teaching movement classes based on tai chi and martial arts. I've been impressed with his explicit knowledge of healing systems, and his intuitive ability to respond to what his clients need. He is also committed to working according to Jewish law, and avoids 'unKosher' healing practices. He's a solid practitioner and I recommend his services to those who want to regain health and increase vitality.

JERUSALEM MEDICAL DOCTOR
Medical research continues to demonstrate the positive impact of holistic living on health and longevity. A recent report in the British Journal of Sports Medicine claimed that exercise delays biological aging by up to twelve years. Moreover, it is estimated that about one-third of all cancers in developed societies are related to poor nutrition and inadequate physical activity. In light of this, a recent global report by the Second World Cancer Research Fund and American Institute for Cancer Research Expert Fund recommended physical activity and dietary modifications--such as those classically espoused by holistic healers--as powerful means of significantly reducing risk of cancer and cardiovascular and inflammatory diseases, and to increase lifespan.
These are just a few of the reasons why I have become a student of Efraim Geltman. His winning personality is another reason.
Efraim has had 22 years experience in holistic therapeutics, including nutrition, stretching, martial arts (a great cardiovascular workout) and pressure-point massage treatment (shiatsu). Two specific treatments that I have been learning from Efraim and that I hope to use in my own practice are shiatsu and his integrated exercise program. More than just releasing tension from critical points, these exercises have greatly enhanced my acute bodily awareness. I have begun to unlock surprising physical potential; mentally, I feel more alert and ambitious.
As a medical doctor, I have seen the benefit of appropriate diet and exercise on the sick. Now, I am learning first-hand that a proactively healthy lifestyle can even improve the well-being of the healthy.
Any person who desires a longer, fuller life would do well to take advantage of this qualified instructor.

JERUSALEM SEMINARIAN WITH ' MENTAL ILLNESS'
'Can you be completely honest with where you think I can go from here, because I do feel I healed a lot and changed a lot here, and my pain of when I first arrived (in Israel) that lasted through the middle of the year has really left me.....
The truth is though I feel I've come along way in that like you have said about changing my terminology, with changing the way I look at mental illness.
I feel that I don't need to define myself or situation by _________ (psychiatric name for a certain mental illness) anymore.
I don't feel it has the power it had and I understand that my life exists beyond it now. So I don't feel torn anymore because I feel... working on myself in general as a person is the issue (rather than suppressing the symptoms with medication.)

JERUSALEM ARTIST TESTIMONIAL
In my time as a friend and talmid of ephraim geltman, I know him to be an honest,
determined, committed, spiritually serious, and extremely knowledgeable man of his craft.
He has spent years working the healing aspects of various martial arts systems, filling out the
dross that is inconsistant with his life as an orthodox Jew, and his skill is phenomenal.
His programs for developing strength and presence through his years of study are unparralelled,
and the depth to which he has been able to get into the depth of the various schools, which are practically
assur for people to learn who are not chinese, is a testament to his tenacity and faith, and stick-to-it-iveness.
He is a fine practitioner of shiatsu and a serious yid.

Efraim is an insightful and creative healer with a deep understanding of the holistic body and ways of healing it. He's relentless in his drive to heal, and he is extremely flexible in his method. Over the months we worked together, he changed his approach several times when he saw that I wasn't doing one exercise because I didn't like it, or taking a supplement he recommended because it was expensive or inconvenient.
He was constantly looking to tailor our plan to fit the reality of my lifestyle and budget, and always looking to keep my supplement expenses to the bare minimum, without any fluff. He can adjust the pace of the patient's progress, from gentle to aggressive, as needed.
A strong recommendation!

Efraim's approach is sensitive and pointed.
He is excited to give his clients the steps they need to empower their own healing process.

Efraim Jeffrey Geltman takes his shiatsu seriously.
He has a deep integrity to his practice that runs so deep, that just being in his presence makes you want to be more upright and righteous about how you take care of yourself and relate to your community.

I went to Efraim suffering from serious back and neck pain; in one short session he located the source of pain and neutralized it.
Throughout the entire session I felt I was being treated by an absolute professional.
He is truly a gifted healer.

JERUSALEM STUDENT OF GIDEON HARAMATI, ENERGY HEALER
After working with Efraim for a few months I was inspired to enroll to train under Gideon Haramati in the religious holistic training program in Jerusalem.
Efraim cuts through all the nonsense in a way that is fun and makes me want to do my best.
Of course this is not some cheesy paint-by-numbers operation where my 'best' is someone else's dream.
He helps me to find the best that only I can really find.
it's been a crazy journey so far, but at the same time sane like maybe nothing else before.

Efraim is a remarkable guy. Upon meeting him i instantly felt the power of his spirit and knew he was someone to draw close to, however it took some time before I opened myself up to having him perform bodywork on me and to experience the lasting effects of the his "Total Life Therapy" program. In fact, he started me on TLT without my even knowing it - just through our conversations, and the effects, as I already wrote, have been lasting. I am constantly finding myself using his techniques in self relaxation and working on character development. I highly recommend anyone to use Efraim as a source of healing and therapy.
