Avi Bahat Touch & Movement Therapy 

Back Pain Tel Aviv - Avi BahatWith touch and movement therapy, you can live a pain free life.
Dear Avi, I am back in the States and already I am incorporating what I learned from you in my approach to dance. I wanted to thank you once more for the way you treated my problems that stem from years of dancing. The brilliance of your approach and the therapeutic value of your work will allow me to face with confidence the physical stress that occurs unavoidably in my field. My deepest gratitude for everything and all the best.

Avi was such a help while I was on vacation and having some real pain. and I was able to function relatively well on my vacation after I had seen him only twice. Avi did a great job of figuring out the patterns and dynamics in my body and his manual manipulation felt good and made sense to me physically, mentally and emotionally. I felt that I was literally in good hands and I was confident in his knowledge and technique. I feel really lucky to have found him.

About class leader: - Yes, I would like to have Avi as a leader in other courses - lots of things in a short time to digest. He was concentrating in his guiding and was following, that we had learned. I liked. - Strong knowledge, lots of to give - Very effective Instructor, lots of new staff, but also repeating and personal guiding - I liked that Avi was very clear and accurate in his teaching. Equal and willing to teach everybody and explain. - In practicing yes. Good guiding, goal that we understood - Good movements in daily practice - the practice from the core was good - Demos were very clear, easy to ask help when needed, nice that Mentastics was precise.
Dearest Avi, I want to thank you for the wonderful exercises on sitting on your website. I have been having a terrible time trying to sit at my computer and write, and I think these exercises are saving me! I am so grateful to find them. I have been using your exercise EVERY TIME I sit down and especially at the computer. I am having NO BACK PAIN from sitting at the computer as I usually do. My back and I are forever grateful. With love and thanks, Kate Rose www.katerosehealing.com

Testimonial for Avi Bahat "Your massage is worth so much" these are the words that came to my mind, right after Avi's treatment. Avi listens, diagnoses, touches, lightly, instructs, causes me to breath more deeply, tight muscles start to become relaxed and I feel really good. A regular maintenance is so important. Thank you Avi!!

As a body – oriented therapist I am aware of the amount of information stored in our bodies, which we used as an armor to protect ourselves over the years. I received the 10 Structural Integration sessions from Avi. I felt this could help me get more space in my body. Less pain and it would make me longer! Avi taught me how I can use the support from the environment such as the floor or a chair. These practical exercises are tools for life. Contact Avi I highly recommend!

Your playfulness, freedom, the sounds you make, your acceptance, wisdom, sense of humor, your singing, your explanation and demonstration so clear and inspiring and easy to understand. Even the way you handled resistance. That I could be myself – it was a safe environment. You knew when to come to help. The love and easiness you bring with you. It was built in a brilliant graduate way. For me it was perfect just the way it was.

Avi is in a league of his own! In my view he represent the essence and core of what bodywork healing is all about. His in depth knowledge experience, continuous education and never seething interest and curiosity combine with his psychological insights and passion for healing is an unbeatable. I have been a professional athlete since my teens I only wish I lived closer to Avi and not on the other side of the globe so I could enjoy the benefits of his expertise. Sincerely,

When I first came to Avi, walking was difficult, sitting was difficult. A top orthopedist had pronounced that recovery was impossible. I was not only in pain, but was also bewildered. Avi began with me with Rolfing sessions. Surgery is now completely off the table, I can carry on my normal activities almost without adjustment. Thank you Avi you saved my life.

Pain in the body indicates that you need to make some changes. 

Many of my clients suffer from back and joint pain. Some have a high degree of muscle tension. Many suffer from a mild form of Scoliosis in which the spine is curved due to muscle tension. When Scoliosis is mild, it is often not detected until there is pain and the patient seeks relief from back pain. 

I specialize in treating Scoliosis and herniated slipped discs.

Using different methods of Touch and Movement Therapy, I help my patients to be free from pain and improve their overall well being.

I have worked in the field of Touch and Movement Therapy for over 30 years. One of the most efficient ways to treat pain is by using the method of Structural Integration (developed by Dr. Ida Rolf).

The Trager Approach is the most efficient method to teach the body how to "release through movement". The Trager Approach method teaches the client useful methods to release pain in his daily life.

Combining Structural Integration with the Trager Approach provides the best physical results. Clients who have completed a series of treatments have reported a feeling of lightness while standing, walking, and sitting. They have also experienced great relief from back pain.

The Paula Garburg Method is another greate tool I have used for the last 30 years to treat pelvic floor problems as well as many other types of body dysfunctions. The Paula method is a self healing system. You learn the method and continue to practice it.

Are you interested in learning Structural Integration (Dr. Ida Rolf)? Trager Approach? Information about course can be found under Professional Courses in the top menu.

  • טיפול בגב תחתון

    The most common area for back pain is in the lower back, but sometimes this causes problems in upper parts of the back too! 
    The good news is 

  • שיטת פאולה
    The Israeli Paula Garburg Method is the most effective method regarding incontinence and prolapse.
    The efficiency of the Paula Method is far 
  • Connecting to the midline from the leg

    Standing in between these two modalities as I have learned them more or less at the same time, has developed in me the option of seeing them as complimentary rather than contradictory!
