Welcome to the Rebalance clinic. We address most conditions with two deep and very effective healing methods that we specialise in: Balance Method Acupuncture and Recall Healing.

What Can We Do For You?

The “Rebalance” name comes from a combination of two of the most effective methods in alternative medicine: Recall Healing and Balance Method Acupuncture.

Balance Method Acupuncture is a fast and very effective acupuncture method that has shown to produce better and faster results than common Acupuncture. It is a modern approach based on the ancient knowledge of acupuncture lineages in China. It uses mathematical principles of balancing the meridians in the body, whilst introducing hundreds of additional acupuncture points. 

Recall Healing is a revolutionary consultation method which takes places through conversation and works by bringing awareness to the underlying emotional trauma behind conditions and behaviours. It has shown fast and effective results in bringing, through awareness, a transformation and healing to many chronic conditions.

Acupuncture and Recall Healing are able to address most illnesses, injuries and conditions. In the Rebalance clinic you have the unique opportunity to receive both and to combine them where necessary with herbal therapy, nutrition and other treatments.

What is Balance Method Acupuncture?

In Balance Method Acupuncture you will find all the advantages of common acupuncture but with faster results.
In the beginning of the first meeting, a diagnosis of Chinese Medicine is conducted which includes pulse and tongue diagnosis and other assessments. The root cause of the disease as seen from a Chinese medicine point of view, is diagnosed and the treatment can begin.
Balance method acupuncture can be done with your clothes on. You simply need to roll up your sleeves of your shirt and pants.
Balanced method acupuncture has fast results because it uses special acupuncture points and distal acupuncture points (treating points outside of the area of concern). This allows for faster and more precise results than needling the affected area. For example, for treating the back, we will use acupuncture points on the leg and hand.

 Can acupuncture show immediate results?

In Balance Method Acupuncture one of our goals is to see immediate results in the treatment, especially in cases of pain and inflammation. If results are not seen after a few sessions, we need to reassess the treatment options. Dr. Tan, the founder of Balance method acupuncture, says that acupuncture results should be as fast as the appearance of shadow when you put a stick in the ground.
Some improvement should be seen in every treatment. Although healing abilities are dependent on age and the severity of the condition, Balance Acupuncture will open you to the maximum of your healing abilities.


Conditions Acupuncture can treat:

  • Any pain or inflammation in the body including:
  • Pain in the joints, neck, back, knees, elbows and shoulders.
  • Migraines, headaches, constipation, hemorrhoids, crohn’s disease.
  • Hormone imbalance, menstruation and menopause symptoms.
  • Immune system disorders, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue.
  • Anxiety, stress, depression, insomnia.
  • Maintaining general well-being.

The Benefits of Acupuncture compared to Western medicine:

  • No drugs, prescriptions or chemicals involved.
  • Acupuncture has no side effects.
  • Acupuncture creates harmony in the body and mind
  • Acupuncture treatment is suitable for almost anyone
  • Balance acupuncture can provide fast relief from pain and symptoms
  • It requires almost no recovery time

Acupuncture treatment frequency

The treatment frequency at the acupuncture clinic is usually between one to two times a week and up to three times in acute cases with extreme pain. The frequency of treatment will reduce when improvement is achieved. After healing of the condition, it is recommended to come to maintenance and general balance of body and mind treatments once a month.

Acupuncture session

During an acupuncture session, patients relax while the needles bring balance to his or her body and mind. The relief of symptoms in many cases, is often felt during the session. Chinese Herbal Medicine and nutritional changes may also be recommended in combination with the acupuncture. Acupuncture treatment is received fully clothed either lying or sitting on a massage table or chair, and loose clothing is recommended as sleeves may need to be rolled up for treatments on the arms and legs.

What is Recall Healing

Recall Healing consultation is very effective in creating a deeper change in the person’s body, mind and life. Recall Healing takes places through conversation between the patient and the Recall Healing specialist. It utilizes a framework in which the Recall Healing specialist helps a person to “recall” and bring awareness to the subconscious, emotional trauma behind their condition or behavior, instead of simply treating the symptoms. When a person comprehends why he or she is ill or has a certain behavior, this is already a big part of the healing process. Bringing awareness to the emotional trauma and subconscious patterns has shown to have fast and effective results in transforming and healing many chronic conditions.

 What is the cause of disease?

In Recall Healing we see that disease is not a mistake but rather an evolutionary way of survival, created by the automatic brain to deal with an inner conflict or stress that we weren’t able to resolve ourselves. The way that diseases are formed is true to both animals and humans.

For example: the biological reason for a certain type of breast cancer. A female wolf is worried for her cubs because of many predators coming near to her den. This creates a conflict of survival to her cubs, and to assist her, her automatic brain will multiply the cells of her milk gland, as long as the danger is there, to produce more milk for her cubs. This way they can grow faster and have a greater chance of survival in overcoming the threat. From a medical-point-of-view, she has a breast cancer (Lobular Carcinoma), but from her biological brain-point-of-view, she is saving her cubs. 

Similarly, for humans, an example is that a woman develops a milk gland breast cancer after her fifteen year old son had a motorbike accident and was in a coma for two months. In this case her need to nurture her son is more symbolic than practical. Because the human brain and the subconscious is so complex and, the Recall Healing specialist will need to find where the conflict lies in the subconscious and what it is connected to, as not every women in the same situation will respond physically and emotionally in the same way.

Recall Healing Framework: Factors in exploring the subconscious

There are three main areas of exploring the root cause of the disease or behavioural pattern in our subconscious mind:

  1. The life cycles, events and experiences in our life.
  2. Early childhood and pregnancy, including the parents’ experiences.
  3. Our ancestors and family dating back three generations.

Bringing the cause of the diseases or pattern from the subconscious to the conscious awareness creates a healing in our mind. This may cause the brain to stop using the disease as a survival mechanism, and bring harmony back to the body and mind.  

Recall Healing Consultations
Recall Healing was first used in addressing the emotional cause of different kinds of cancer, but now is widely used to address many physical and mental conditions. It is important to note that compared to acupuncture, in Recall Healing, the patient needs to be more involved with the process. They are asked to complete a special questionnaire and to examine and reestablish connections to events or circumstances in his or her life, recalling situations from the past which may be linked to their current condition. 

A series of Recall Healing consultations which usually encompasses around 4 to 6 sessions, generally one week apart, can be life changing. Because through this method we can actually heal our subconscious, this has a transformational effect on the physical body as well as in different aspects of the personality and person’s life.

healing the cause of disease

Healing the underlying, root cause of disease, either from the point of view of Chinese medicine such as with Acupuncture, or the subconscious emotional level, as in Recall Healing; is necessary to create a deep, fundamental healing. It is important for preventing reoccurrence of the disease or similar symptoms, which may develop later from the same cause. When addressing the cause of the disease, people often notice improvement in other areas of their life such as in sleep, digestion, vitality and mental and emotional balance. These may not have been treated directly but healed or improved because a deep imbalance in the mind-body was addressed. In the Rebalance clinic we consider the overall human wellbeing and not only the disease or condition. It means that if there is a major stress factor in the person’s life, like in a relationship, work, self-esteem etc., we will consider healing that area of his life as part of a holistic healing approach. This will be more important to consider in chronic, complicated diseases like with cancer, than with a mild back pain.

Acupuncture combined with Recall Healing and other methods
Recall Healing and Balance Acupuncture can be taken together or separately, depending on the patient’s preferences and the recommendation from Elad Shalev. If needed, other modalities like nutrition, herbal therapy and Tui-na are combined in the treatment. We may also refer you to other therapists in cases where you need other support like Naturopathy, homeopathy and chiropractic treatment, as well as suggesting activities like Yoga, Feldenkrais, meditation, Tai chi and more.
