About Ilana

About - I am licensed to practice acupuncture by the Massachusetts Board of Registration in Medicine.  I am certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) in acupuncture and Chinese herbology.

I received my Master’s of Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine from the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in San Francisco, where I trained in both acupuncture and herbal medicine. I studied in China, at the Zhe Zhiang College of Traditional Chinese Medicine.  I have also apprenticed for seven years with the holistic nourishment counselor Hale Sofia Schatz.  

I have also completed a post-graduate two-year Chinese herbal course with Sharon Weizenbaum of White Pine Healing Arts, with a focus in women’s health.  

I completed the Dr. Sear’s L.E.A.N family wellness coach training program, and am a certified L.E.A.N Coach.  I offer the L.E.A.N Essentials family nutrition classes.

Trained to treat a wide variety of conditions, my areas of specialty are nourishment counseling, gastro-intestinal health, family nutrition, women’s health and Candida.

I have worked in a variety of clinical settings, and have been in private practice in Newton, MA  since 2005.

I live with my husband and two children in Newton, MA.


“Our family has benefited so much from our work with you. Both kids eat better and our youngest's chronic constipation has resolved. My husband has lost more than 30 pounds and reduced sugar in his diet significantly much influenced by the information you sent him to read and watch online. I have lost 15 of the 30 pounds I plan to lose since cleansing in a group with you and can't wait to cleanse again. Thank you for all of your support!”
