Why Acupuncture?

Ilana has first-hand experience in realising the benefits of acupuncture after overcoming a chronic chest infection and rash through the use of alternative medicine.

From here she developed a keen interest in Chinese Medicine Theory and dedicated her life to providing others with a safe and natural way to manage pain and illness.

Why life coaching?

With more than 10 years of practical experience, Ilana found that Acupuncture and Chinese herbs were not always enough to treat her patients effectively. 

By learning more about her patients’ daily lives and the way they approached critical thinking, Ilana was able to interpret and address the underlying issues and assist her patients to fully transform their lives.

Once a person’s thinking patterns have transformed to become more open, health problems often resolve on their own. This is where coaching is key; if the true cause of the disease is not treated then the disease can not be cured.
