Dr. Harms is a joy to work with! I felt very welcome in the space from the moment she met me at the door. Her office is clean, well lit, and beautiful. She took the time to hear my goals for the session and asked insightful questions to find out how she could best address my needs.
If you’ve never had moving cupping, Dr. Harms is great at it. I highly recommend her treatment for muscles spasms and back pain. I came in in a pretty rough state and left feeling so much better! She was able to resolve the neck pain I’d had for days with a single needle. I’ll definitely be rebooking.
Dr. Harms was wonderful. She took the time to gather all relevant information in an empathic and warm manner and (because I was interested) went out of her way to explain the rationale behind the treatments recommended. I felt better after my session than I have in months and I’m looking forward to ongoing treatment!
Dr. Harms created a healing environment that felt welcoming, informative, affirming, and safe. I came to Ilana because of digestion issues and skin issues that have been misdiagnosed for years. Past providers have been dismissive of my symptoms or unable to establish any long term and sustainable solutions. Ilana was extremely validating in that she helped me recognize my symptoms were connected and that they made sense. She helped me to reframe what I was experiencing in my body as an opportunity to connect with a deeper sense of what is going on with me energetically, and how my body might be expressing that in order for me to become aware and invite in change. To have a practitioner hold the space in such a way where my story truly felt heard and that there was space to be curious and explore without fear was profoundly healing for me. I cannot recommend working with Ilana enough. You will have a collaborative, empathetic, and caring healing partner on your journey with her.
Dr. Harms is a wonderful acupuncturist! I feel very taken care of in her presence, trust her diagnostic skills and feel relaxed and nourished after our sessions together. I’m grateful to have Ilana on my self-care team!
Working with Dr. Harms has been such a rewarding experience for me. She is attentive and caring, and very welcoming. She was able to treat neck pain of mine that had been bothering me for a few weeks. Her treatment was well-thought out and her follow-up recommendations helped immensely. I would highly recommend anyone interested to go check her out. Thanks Dr. Harms!
I’m a newcomer to acupuncture and during our appointment Dr. Harms treated me with the utmost compassion. Unlike many physicians I’ve seen recently, Dr. Harms took my history very thoughtfully and provided me plenty of space to get detailed about what’s bothered me the most. Once the treatment began, she gave me thorough explanations that helped put my mind at ease as a total novice. Her follow-up treatment plan addressed my concerns and made me feel really heard. I’m already seeing symptom reduction, which is amazing given how accessible her treatment regimen is compared to what I had been prescribed by my physician. If you’re curious about what acupuncture can do for you, I strongly encourage you to come see Dr. Harms!!
I really appreciated Dr. Harms’ thoughtful, holistic approach. She took the time to learn about me as a person — healthwise and otherwise– before determining a course of treatment. I love that she is REAL and kind, AND clearly competent and knowledgeable. I appreciated her walking me through all the steps (and rationale) for my first acupuncture session, and that she shared detailed treatment follow-up recommendations shortly after my visit.
