About The Balance Center

The Balance Center offers treatment for the whole family in a safe and professional environment. Each patient receives a full consultation so that we can determine an individualized treatment plan. 


Our experienced practitioners, who work and collaborate with one another, offer a variety of different therapies and alternative health treatments, and often specialize in certain areas such as fertility, chronic pain, allergies and more. We retain strong connections with conventional doctors across the city to ensure a fully integrated approach. We pride ourselves on our ability to combine Western medicine with complementary treatments performed by highly-trained healthcare providers who often practice in both areas.  


People who come to the Balance Center are men, women and children who are looking to treat physical or emotional issues

Yehudis Schamroth, RN, CRNA,

Acupuncturist and Herbalis


Hours: Tuesdays


I have been nurse anesthetist for over 30 years and I have always  been concerned that Western medicine was falling short in offering  only surgery and medicines as a way of  healing to patients.

In Israel, I pursued my desire to learn alternative medicine , acupuncture and herbalism. I believe that alternative therapies and medicines can bridge the health care gap, and that both have their place in the realm of healing. 


I now have a very busy Integrative Medicine practice, using Master Tung method of acupuncture in the Bet Shemesh area. I am the nurse who does acupuncture, and I often treat whole families for various issues. 


I now also work at he Balance Center of Rechavia one day each week. 


A large part of my time is also spent is patient education , lecturing on topics as:

"How to Integrate Eastern and Western Medicine",

"Topics on Natural Health and Wellness", and "How Herbals Can Replace

Many of your Medicines"
