Welcome -


I’m Ilana Margalit, an acupuncturist, nourishment counselor and Chinese herbalist. In my practice I have successfully treated a wide range of health issues including irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), ulcerative colitis, weight loss, allergies, insomnia, depression,  PMS, anxiety, and back pain.

Food is the one medicine we take every day, and so nourishment is often central to the work I do with clients. Together we unravel the mystery of  how to nourish yourself to feel clear, energetic, and balanced.

As a parent I am very in touch with how challenging it can be to feed the whole family amidst the many demands of family life. This is more important than ever in our modern world that bombards us daily with countless unhealthy, highly processed foods options. When parents eat foods that nourish them--make them feel good and vibrantly alive, they are better equipped to teach this to their children to do the same.

I also lead seasonal cleanses. The Nourishment Cleanse (TM) is a wonderful annual tune-up for all aspects of yourself—body, mind, and spirit. It is an opportunity to cleanse your body of toxins, clarify your intentions, and awaken to your deeper self.

In my practice I draw from the the practical wisdom of both Traditional Chinese Medicine and nourishment counseling. It is with great joy that I do this work because I see how effective these systems are in helping people to come to a place of greater balance.  I am excited to walk with you on your journey towards more vibrant health.

“I had realized for some time that changing my diet was the way to go toward feeling emotionally, spiritually, and physically better.  But between mothering my 2 young children, my professional work, and the rest of life, I was unable to make the commitment without assistance.  Ilana lovingly guided me through the cleanse, supported me from where I was coming from, encouraged me gently to challenge myself and honor who I truly am and who I want to become.  It has been almost one year since the first cleanse I did with Ilana, and my life has profoundly changed.  Cleansing with Ilana has become a touchstone in my life.”
