To whom this may concern:
This is a letter of testimonial and gratitude for Mr. Seymour Koblin for his supervision, instruction, and mentorship over the past two decades.

Mr. Koblin gave me the opportunity to teach over twenty years ago. He was a constant presence in my classroom taking notes, sometimes sitting outside so that I would not know he was listening. He would give me feedback often right after class when the students had left, or he would come into the class and provide immediate feedback while the point being discussed was fresh. Later during the internship classes for those of us learning to teach he would often offer suggestions to help me be a better teacher. He would address everything from the verbal and body language being used to the examples and illustrations given in class and of course to the actual material being taught.
There were many times I sat at the back of his classes taking notes on how he taught. Later we would go to dinner and talk about any doubts or questions I had. He was always willing to help and motivate me.

Now that I have been teaching for over twenty years I still keep many of his suggestions in mind. It is thanks to his continued support and guidance that I consistently receive excellent feedback from my students and supervisors.

Best regards,

As a middle-aged person, it is important to engage in activities that are health-enhancing on a regular basis in order to have the best quality of life as you age.  But with a busy life, it is equally important to pick activities which give you the maximum return on your investment of time.  Chi Kung is one such activity which combines so many benefits in one practice.  I find that Chi Kung helps keep my joints and muscles flexible, it promotes better circulation, it promotes deeper breathing, it promotes more balance and symmetry on both sides of my body, and it promotes better concentration and relieves stress.  It also promotes increased sensitivity to the energy flow of Chi, which is a key component of understanding and application for those interested in Chinese Medicine.

 

Lastly, the practice is foundational for those who wish to add Tai Chi to the regimen which has martial applications for self-defense.  Who could ask for more from one practice?  I highly recommend it as a component of your personal health regimen, and when coupled with highly skilled and ethical teachers such as Seymour Koblin and his associates at ISOHA, the practice is that much more beneficial.

It’s like having a slow running faucet and knowing something is wrong and then the plumber (Seymour and his trained practitioners) open up the sink cabinet,  point and say “there’s your problem!”

I do not know about the whole school, but I can say that Seymour Koblin is a master instructor and healer.  The depth and breadth of his knowledge are vast, yet he communicates in a simple and clear style that makes it easy to take in what he is teaching you.  His “Zen-Touch” style of massage is quite unusual.  It combines several forms of Eastern and Western healing knowledge into a deep, yet gentle, experience that is well worth learning and/or receiving.  I am not surprised at all that he is gaining international recognition.

I attribute my success as a Holistic Health Practitioner to Seymour Koblin and his School of Healing Arts    (now iSOHA).
My 16-year journey of practicing Zen-Touch, Nutrition, and other energy therapies has not only benefitted my clients but my own life as well in that it helped to make sense of the world we live in. There is not a day that goes by when I don’t reflect on my days at the School and the lessons I learned. It was truly a life-changing experience and I am so grateful to know Seymour.

I started taking classes with Seymour at the [International] School of Healing Arts about 2 years ago. We met in person first to discuss my interest and figure out a plan that was just right for me. I really appreciated this because it gave me a sense of comfort and empowerment to begin the process of becoming holistically certified through the school.of healing arts.
The personalized attention I received during my studies was so helpful and I believe essential to my learning and growing. I was able to ask questions and have discussions with Seymour on the various topics being taught in order to further my understanding and really integrate my comprehension of the course material into practical application. It also gave me the opportunity to move at my own pace during the hands-on experiences. In addition, Seymour met with me via Skype for distance classes and coaching. I was so grateful for this as it gave me the freedom and flexibility I needed to accommodate my schedule while still being able to work toward my certification and receive the individualized care that proved to be so beneficial.

Thank you so much! – Robyn Sanders –

I have been taking Chi Kung classes at ISOHA with Seymour Koblin for 3 years. It was my first time to be introduced to Chi Kung. I thoroughly enjoy the classes. I feel comfortable with the teacher because he watches each of us and makes sure that no one gets hurt while exercising (by doing movements incorrectly). I also appreciate the individual approach and recommendation of how to use Chi Kung in everyday life even when just walking stairs for example. He never makes one feel as that there is a lot to get better at. Once you get what was pointed out he gives you another goal to work on. The positive benefits I personally get from Chi Kung are a painless hip, better body posture, – I walk with a straighter back, I feel more flexible and especially the lower part of my body feels and looks more fit to me. Chi Kung teaches me to breathe deeply and slower than usual. Apart from these physical benefits it also brings a calming effect for my mind. I need to exercise every day if I want to take regular advantage of these benefits. I have never had pain while doing Chi Kung on my own and if I ever started to do movements incorrectly the teacher pointed it out during the class, Because I was taught so well during the classes, I benefit from exercising on my own.-

I can’t express how much knowledge and skill set I learned in one day. I feel so compelled to continue to study and gain as much knowledge and hands~on experience as I am able to. 
It was an absolute pleasure meeting you, and I truly hope we will be in touch. Within the next couple months I definitely will be looking to purchase your books and look into the Internship, as it would be a great privilege to do so. Continue to be well and keep up the great work! I wish the very best for you. Thank you so very much.

It was very painful to walk. My back and legs ached so much-standing or sitting.
After just a few mintes of this massage, my back and legs felt such tremendous release from the pain. I’m so very amazed.

“Seymour and I have met in Prague when he was planning to start an International Branch of Zen Touch™ Shiatsu. His ideology was to enlighten the Eastern European countries on the beauty of alternative healing and lifestyles. I became his student, assistant teacher, and translator. Seymour’s efforts in the Czech Republic fell on the frugal ground and he has been a leader and an inspiration to many students and clients for years now. He is a very keen and knowledgeable person who loves to teach and enlighten his audience with life-like examples. Thanks to the background I have received from Seymour in the areas of Oriental medicine, passing my Oriental portion of NCBTMB was a breeze- even years later. I can certainly agree that his teaching methods using colorful examples help students understand and retain the knowledge for a long time. Seymour is a great person, skillful practitioner, knowledgeable mentor, and an excellent teacher. I fully recommend his expertise to anyone in need.”

“I’ve known Seymour Koblin (CEO of iSOHA) for many years. I consider him to be a person of integrity and mastery in his field. He has developed his own methods of healing and has taught them internationally. From my experience of him, his life is devoted to the process of healing. This is, no doubt, reflected in his organization (iSOHA).”

“Life is designed to work wonderfully well.  If your life appears to not be working, there are limiting decisions distorting your experience of reality that can be cleared.”

I have done Shiatsu and Thai and Traditional Floor work for many years. My lovely older Shiatsu Mat has served me quite well for many years. Thank you Seymour Koblin for inspiring me and teaching me so many years ago. Not a day goes by that I don’t do something I learned from you!

I have to say THANK YOU for all your attention during the day course.  I was the woman you “read” as a demonstration at Healing Hands School of Holistic Health. You impressed me with your intuitive knowledge of all my health issues.

I went into your course with total disbelief- .only being there to see if I could understand the oriental way of thinking better…  The courses I have taken so far have confused me beyond belief… But you made it sink in for me… Seeing it thru your eyes made me understand it, realize it..and again thank you

With a smile,
