Sessions

I am once again seeing clients for in-person sessions, though with the recent Omicron surge I work masked and request you do the same. Throughout the office space we continue to maintain the highest Covid sanitization standards (click link for more info) for everyone's health & well-being.

Session Work

Initial sessions take time to explore what's in play in your present health, current and past issues; to learn what is happening in your life- how you are sleeping, eating, your energy level, what stresses you may be experiencing.  That time of getting familiar with one another, I find, allows me to know how best to support you, what work I offer serves you.

A session is always a dialogue, you are embraced as an active participant though welcome to drop into a quiet state. In Craniosacral & Polarity the body is part of that dialogue, my hands "listening" and responding through gentle contacts.

 

Generally Polarity & Craniosacral sessions have several components: a conversation to assess what to focus on that day, then the bodywork itself-  done clothed on a treatment table- with time afterwards for anything you'd like to share or ask questions about.

As I believe offering you tools and information for your self-care are essential, in both Polarity & Craniosacral, as

well as Massage sessions, I may make recommendations to address your issues- breathing or movement exercises, meditations, dietary shifts, a book or articles to explore. Some are listed on my Resources page.

Intake

Before we meet I’ll ask you to complete an Intake form to help frame our session. I suggest to use it as a tool to set your intentions for the work, to prompt your thinking about what you'd like to address in your session.  Whatever you share is held in strict confidence unless you give written authorization to release to another caregiver.

This work can be energizing,  as your body experiences a novel liberty or it may be  a more peaceful, harmonizing & relaxing experience.  It’s very respectful work allowing a person to be held in a safe, non-judgemental, spacious relationship.

Ilene opened my level of awareness to my body and somehow magically taught me how to carry myself with more ease. Her expert hands guided me to find increased inner and physical balance. I always feel more relaxed and at peace with my feelings and body, refreshed and in balance.
