In-person sessions with Ilia in Center City Philly – by appointment only. Scroll down for full offerings.
All healing starts with unconditional love & listening.
I have been trained in everything from the traditional care for chronic pains and illness to the spiritual and alternative care for the whole being. I have learned through the years how to listen deeply. Beneath your words – I listen for the places where your mind, body and Soul are asking for a bit more love and attention, and use the bag of tools I have to nourish them back to health.
With every session, our aim is to restore your connection with the YOU that knows….I can, and I will do this.
Below is a list of services I regularly provide at my office in Center City Philly.
This is an extremely gentle massage that takes into consideration a complete health history, your current or past chemo care and radiation history.

Do your emotions seem to bubble up until you’re in pain? Are you at a place where you’ve been in pain so long no one knows why or how you could be in this situation after all these years? If this sounds like you, email me. Together we can figure out a plan to help you through this.
Every offering with me includes therapeutic touch. Whether you’re coming in for neck pain, unexplained chronic pain or energy work, each session is customized to meet your specific needs on the day of your session.
This light touch form of body work focuses on calming the central nervous system. It combines gentle touch and energy work for a deeply relaxing session unlike anything you have ever experienced.

Together we work to go beyond your pain. Each session includes, chat time to develop a deeper understanding of your pain pattern, body work to address the physical pain, and homework. If you are ready to take steps to put your pain behind you, I am ready to guide you through this. Come in and lets get started!

Ilia is an incredibly skilled practitioner, and you’ll know it from the first five minutes of talking to her. She’s compassionate, intuitive, and her “sneaky deep” approach left me walking out feeling taller, more open, and very much cared for. She’s the best.

I have gone to Ilia for both massage and craniosacral work over the past few years, and can’t recommend either of these services highly enough. Beyond the physical healing component, Ilia always manages to provide healing on a deeper, more energetic level. Her work is part massage, part magic. And she will put anyone at ease.
Devon L. | Director of Education
Working with Ilia has been a godsend…Not only is she a warm and loving person, but she is incredibly insightful and taps into her intuitive gifts in order to customize to her clients their unique and unmet needs. I knew I was struggling along my own personal/spiritual path and the moment Ilia stepped in, things began to quickly change and transform. It was like a dark veil was lifted from my life, and underneath was an untapped goldmine of wisdom and enlightenment, all provided through the wisdom, the tools, and exercises Ilia sent me each week…I would recommend Ilia for your personal, professional, and spiritual needs.
