The Ilan Lev Method is a therapy based on touch in which we use movement and sound as our tools to communicate with the vibrational energy inside of us. The information that our nervous system receives during a treatment is registered directly in the sensoric part of the brain, beyond the cognitive. This creates a deep learning. Our patterns start to break down and our system shifts on a deep level. The treatment strengthens our self-healing abilities which results in relief of pain and stress, better circulation, and a richer range of movement.
The treatment has been successful in treating Spinal disc hernia, damage to knee cartilage, torn ligaments, damaged and hurt joints, fibromyalgia, vertigo, and more. We see that stress and emotional density in the body are reduced, old traumas are being processed and patients are simply happier and energized.
Through its intuitive and playful nature, the method touches all layers of our existence and has the potential to take anyone from their current situation to a whole new level of being.
"I love people, love to help, love challenges, I'm curious, like new things, thrills, I love the unknown and its usage, I take responsibility, love compassion, hope, the sparkle in the eyes, I look for excitement, love feelings and I see in these the nature of life. It's very important for me to excite those I meet and those I'm with, and I see in this the materials for a true dialogue, fertile and a basis for endless giving."
Note that the only requirements to enter our Basic training is curiosity and willingness to explore and expand.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
"Had a great experience with the Ilan Lev Method School in Amsterdam!
I discovered new ways of how information can travel thought the body; astonished by the different shades of movement qualities. Moreover, I learned how every body part is connected to one another, helping the whole, like every single voice composes the full symphony.
New body patterns were revealed to me and they emphasized the freshness and the freedom in the body, the freedom of pure life. I enjoy discovering the effortlessness in the momentum of the movement.
I got in touch with the sensation of 'the meeting' where the hands of the practitioner's touch of the patient's body and through the enhancement of movement awareness, the proprioception, and the kinesthetic sense, two worlds connect to each other, two lives supporting and healing each other.

"I love movement, touch, deep human communication. I love removing obstacles, I look for new horizons and wish to share them with others. I love options and openness, I encourage chances, like to share and give respect. I feel for those in pain and happy for those who are happy."I don't sit on the bench.."

Professional dancer, teacher, and therapist from Israel. Upon graduating psychology studies in Jerusalem in 2017, Almog began touring the world with Weightlessness workshops, exploring honesty through movement.
"When I first met Ilan in 2015 I felt he understands something that cannot be put into words. Since then I listen, sometimes hearing between the lines, sometimes finding something new, and continuously learning to surrender. The privilege to meet curious people through teaching with Ilan invites me to break down what I grew solid with time. I find incredible beauty in collapsing to rise fresh."
