What People Are Saying... "I have been doing regular Feldenkrais sessions with Alison for back pain that began during the pandemic, as I am sitting for long periods of time. Recently, before the session I had so much pain in my lower back that I couldn't lie on my back with my legs straight. In standing, my shoulders were hunched, and I couldn't move one shoulder without pain. Within ten minutes of working with Alison I could lie on my back with my legs long, easily, pain-free! It was astounding. By the end of the session my shoulder tension was gone, I could stand up with a new sense of stability, and I could even move my shoulder smoothly. As I live in Wisconsin, all my work with Alison has been on Zoom. I am a huge fan of Feldenkrais and Alison's expertise!"--Shoko Miyagi, Human Resources Learning Experience Designer. Feldenkrais client
" Alison's work is marvelous! She has so much experience and knowledge that she brings to every moment, and she is thoughtful and compassionate! Over the last four years, I have been fortunate to experience her work, both Feldenkrais and Soul Lightening Acupressure, and I look forward to returning soon! Don't miss a chance to work with her, either one-on-one, or in a group, on-line, or in person. I have done all of these and been very grateful every time. Most recently she helped me with back pain, and it was so helpful in bringing immediate relief and relaxation." --C.L., Soul Lightening Acupressure and Feldenkrais client
"Alison's skills and her techniques are truly healing. I've seen her for Alchemical Alignment and it has been a life changing experience in the best way. She is knowledgeable about the body's energy systems and she was able to assist me in releasing so much pent up "stuff" that was holding me back. Her intuition is spot on and she identified many issues and themes within my life that affirmed what I already knew and deeply resonated within me. I highly recommend her and am so glad I found this wonderful healer." -- H.F., Alchemical Alignment client
"Alison's wisdom touched me deeply. I was struggling with a few issues -- a big move to a foreign country and some health issues. What Alison said gave me guidance but more importantly some calm, like I could access my own inner resources for more insights. The big shift happened that night, though. I had vivid dreams and on waking in the middle of the night, had a clear inner knowing about what I had to do and how. When I awoke in the morning, I felt a shift around my health issues. The only way I could describe it was that Alison had somehow channelled my spirit guides into more alignment with my being so I could heal. She had facilitated an opening so that healing could happen. Over time I was able to listen within with higher acuity to determine the right outcome for the questions I had brought to Alison. I highly recommend consulting with her." -- L. D., Energy healing client.
"That was impactful!" --C.B., Feldenkrais client.
"I was amazed because I was pain-free for four days, and I was in such agony before. When the pain has returned, it has not been as strongly. Most days I am functioning pain-free, which is a drastic difference. And when you get to be my age, and you can have pain-free days, especially in your back, and you can walk and move, it is wonderful." -- M.C., bodywork client.
"My first experience with group Reiki was profound and moving. Not only did Alison provide insight into my own life and current challenges, but being able to feel the group energy and witness her interactions with other guests was spiritually uplifting and soothing to my soul. I would highly recommend it to all!" -- Becky Reickel, Licensed Massage Therapist, Group Reiki participant.
"I was privileged to attend one of Alison's presentations. Lucky for me, I volunteered to be on the receiving end of her acupressure demonstration. Wow! She was awesome...using gentle words while applying gentle pressure to various points, resulting in a state of complete relaxation and comfort. When it was time to wrap up the demo aspect of the presentation, I grudgingly got up and returned to my chair. :0) If you have an opportunity to be on the receiving end of Alison's magic hands, give it a try...you just might love it! -- Bonnie Tarone, retired Public Health Nurse, Seva Acupressure for Stress Release class participant
"Alison has presented two workshops for my personal development group, The Sage Sisters, to teach the Seva Stress Release Sequence as well as share about and offer group energy healing. She is an incredible presenter, wise teacher, and gifted healer. Her calming and pleasant demeanor instantly puts participants at ease, she carefully guides them to understand the concepts and practices she’s teaching/using, and thoughtfully and thoroughly answers questions. She makes the techniques easy, and easy to apply to your everyday life. It is an absolute delight to work with her, and a blessing to receive and benefit from her knowledge, expertise, and healing power." -- Janet Tamassia, Founder, The Sage Sisters, A Self-Development Community, Seva workshop and Intro to Energy Healing and Group Reiki participant
"An acupressure session with Alison had my ten year old son feeling, in his own words, 'quiet and relaxed' -- an impressive feat given that just before the session he was stir crazy and wild from being cooped up in the house all day. Not only did his siblings begin to request sessions, as well, but he asked for more in order to help him sleep better at night. Alison is professional and talented with both adults and children." -- E.L., Soul Lightening Acupressure client.
"I've had about 10 sessions with Alison. One session, during which I took about 25 pages of notes that I still refer back to. SO helpful. I've also received 3 distance Reiki sessions for digestion issues. Prior to these sessions, everything I ate was hurting my gut, but after the second session, I realized none of the last three meals I'd eaten hurt at all! My gut had been inflamed for nearly two weeks! Not only that, they say Reiki works on the soul. Well, I had been trying to make myself erase some phone messages from my ex for seven months, but just couldn't do it. Every time I tried, I couldn't do it. After the third Reiki session this week, after listening to a voicemail, I got, 'First saved message...and I erased a message from my ex without hesitation. Later I erased the other one as if it was no big deal. Believe me, this was a big deal." -- M.H., Reiki, Soul Lightening Acupressure, and Alchemical Alignment client.
"I have been receiving massage and acupressure from Alison since 2013. Her bodywork and acupressure studies are evident in her work. I leave feeling relaxed and more in tune with my body. I suffer from chronic migraines and they have reduced since starting with Alison. One day I came in for my scheduled session despite having a migraine. By the end of the session, the migraine had disappeared. I fully recommend Alison." -- C.B. Massage therapy & Acupressure client and Seva Acupressure Workshop participant.
"Being a Licensed Massage Therapist and Body/Energy Worker, I know how important it is for my clients to reduce their stress levels in order to attain their optimal health and wellness. I found the Seva Acupressure technique to be a simple, quick, and effective way to help my clients release their stress. Alison Babil is an Excellent teacher and I highly recommend her Seva classes for both practitioners and non-practitioners." -- N.K. Seva Acupressure Workshop participant.
