Madelyn Ilana is an herbalist and a bodyworker, focusing her practice on subtle energies. She integrates Reiki, CranioSacral Therapy, and Body Dialogue™ -- a unique form of somatic healing work focused on structural alignment, releasing tension and constriction, and opening the breath.
In her treatments, Madelyn uses gentle touch to provide a sense of deep relaxation, opening the body to greater flow and vitality. She calls her treatments Somatic Energy Healing, as we work through the body to release constriction and tension, allowing your body's own self-healing to take place. Madelyn has a trauma-informed approach and her treatments are gentle yet deep.
A Somatic Energy Healing session can be combined with personalized herbal formulations and flower essences to support your health and well-being.
Madelyn holds clinical certifications in herbal medicine from both the Florida School of Holistic Living and the Blue Otter School of Herbal Medicine in Siskiyou, CA. Madelyn works in close partnership with the creator of Body Dialogue™ Janice Stieber Rous. Janice and Madelyn have facilitated workshops and retreats together in Florida, North Carolina, and online. Her Reiki practice began over 10 years ago, and is deeply connected to her training in Taoist internal martial arts. Madelyn received her Reiki Master certification from Lisa Toney, LMT in the summer of 2017.
In addition to the healing arts, Madelyn also has a passion for music. She is a singer/songwriter and violinist and can be found performing and teaching locally.
