My name is Gil Barzilay and I am a certified practitioner in Chinese and Japanese Medicine.
I graduated cum laude from a 4-year program in Chinese Medicine (acupuncture, herbs, nutrition) at Broshim Campus, Tel Aviv. In addition, I specialize in Chinese & Macrobiotic nutrition and completed a 2-year program in Japanese Acupuncture according to Kiiko Matusumoto. The world of Oriental medicine is broad and contains diverse treatment methods, so I am still studying and gaining further knowledge at congresses and seminars in Israel and abroad. I am a member of the Israeli Association for Traditional Chinese Medicine (IATCM).
Over the years, I have chosen to focus on treating people who are in the middle of their lives and older. I specialize in metabolic diseases (diabetes, hypertension, cholesterol, obesity), menopausal syndromes, insomnia, acute and chronic pain, headaches and migraines. I chose this practice because I connect well with people in these age groups, whose life experiences I value and with the understanding that maintaining good health becomes more challenging as we grow older.
In the last thirty years, many hundreds of controlled studies in Chinese medicine have been conducted,
Showing the effectiveness of Chinese medicine in many medical conditions, as a unique treatment or as a treatment in addition to conventional treatment. among the rest:
Chinese medicine treatment combines methods such as acupuncture, nutrition, herbs and medicinal mushrooms. Following diagnosis, a patient’s treatment includes these methods, which may be given individually or in combination, depending on the medical issue, in order to achieve optimal results that will be maintained over time.
Chinese Herbs & Medicinal Mushrooms
Herbal medicine is a key pillar in the healing process in Chinese medicine and uses all parts of the plant according to its medicinal properties (leaves, flowers, branches, roots, etc.)
I came for acupuncture treatment following a diagnosis of Baker cyst in the back of the knee which caused me severe pain. An orthopedist made it clear to me that there was no cure for this phenomenon and said that acupuncture may help. After an initial diagnosis and acupuncture session, Gil recommended a series of four additional treatments. After three treatments, I no longer felt pain and after the fifth treatment I no longer had any feelings of discomfort. Since Gil also offers nutritional treatment and since I also suffered from a cancer a few months back (for which I was treated well in a conventional way), I started cooking and eating according to Gil’s guidelines and recipes (which even helped me lose weight).
The treatment takes place in a very pleasant atmosphere and I highly recommend Gil.
