The Ilan Lev Method (ILM) is a revolutionary form of hands-on bodywork that addresses body aches, pains, and movement imbalances caused by physical or emotional strain.
The method works towards improving human capabilities and removing functional difficulties.
The treatment resolves body-circulation issues, relieves pain and skeletal and joint problems.
The method works through a wide variety of movements and provocations to the skeleton of the receiver to obtain openness and release.

Somatic bodywork involves someone else's eyes and senses on your body, to help you find lost parts of yourself, areas subject to sensorimotor amnesia that only an outside pair of hands can help you discover because they have fallen out of your body image.

A normal massage is focused on muscles and soft tissues, in the Ilan Lev method instead the focus is the skeleton.
The movement and vibrations spread from the structure of the practitioner to the one of the receiver.
Everything is attached to the skeleton: muscles, fascia, nervous system, blood system, immune system.
We never force, it's a dialogue with mutual listening.
If the tensions were coming out of a bad habit, after the massage they will come back.
An Ilan Lev bodywork instead, allows the receiver to: restore the ability to get feedback from that area, improve the relation between that area and the rest of the body, experience new movement possibilities.
The more we are stressed somewhere and the less we are able to get feedback for that part of our body.
This because the tensions cut off the sensations.
So when we have tensions we are not able to identify what is going on and work to release that.
Yes, it's gonna be much more slow and minimal compared with the usual bodywork, anyway, it can support the process of healing from the injury.
We are constantly accumulating physical and mental tensions.
In the body, this tension presents itself as difficulties in functioning.
Can be little pain, or discomfort, or can be bigger like a chronic difficulties.
And by the time we notice that we are injured and we don't know how it happened.
Just when it starts to destabilize us we notice it.
The only way to get rid of these interferences and stuckness in movement and refresh our body is through movement.
60-90 minutes per session.
Even if in the first session we may have some release and some good results, to address chronic pain conditions takes a series of treatments. You can come for the first treatment to meet the method and see if it resonate with you. I suggest then a cycle of 5 treatment and after that we will check how the condition is changed and decide if continue or not.
Yes it is.
Please bring long, comfortable clothes and some fresh socks for treatment, or it can be barefoot. I recommend not drinking in the hour before. After the treatment, allow 30 minutes without a hectic rush.
