“I highly, highly recommend Ilya to everyone! I have gotten LOTS of body work and acupuncture in my life and he is by far one of the very best. He is so intuitive with the body, I hardly have to tell him where to focus…he always goes right the spot I need help releasing. One of the main benefits to his work is it lasts; I feel the effects for days after. Also, it doesn’t hurt that he has such an incredibly sweet, nurturing, intelligent personality. I have incredibly high standards for body workers and must admit I am quite picky. Ilya exceeded all my expectations and then some.”

“My husband and I had an amazingly wonderful acupuncture & body work with Ilya. It was so special and harmonizing to have an acupuncture sessions together with my husband. Talk about moving some good Qi b/w the both of us! I highly recommend timeless medicince to anyone looking to have an amazing healing & harmonizing experience!”
-Camilla C., Oct 7,2012
“Without hesitation I recommend Ilya to anyone looking for powerfully healing hands. He truly listens, with his ears but also with his hands. He knows what your body and spirit need in each session and no two sessions are ever the same. He is an incredible human, healer and is uniquely talented to bring a range of modalities into each experience. You will be giving yourself an amazing gift when you see him. No time like the present to make it happen!”

“Ilya is an amazing acupuncturist. I have seen to him many times for treatments of all sorts. He has helped me with acute problems as well as just for stress relief and general wellness. He is a wealth of information and a wonderfully bright human being. I highly recommend him.”
-Daniel Rechtschaffen, April 14, 2011
“I came to see Ilya for a pain in my knee. For months i had not been able to bend without a sharp, flinching pain going through my knee. After seeing one acupuncturist for 2 sessions and the pain still continuing I called Ilya. He worked on my knee only two sessions, patiently applying the needles to the right areas and checking with me on the sensations that they evoked, when my pain was completely gone and has been gone ever since. I have recommended him to many friends and they all are pleased with the results. He is one excellent and powerful healer.”
-Rachel Long, April 18, 2011
“Ilya is a true healer. I came to him with a damaged rotator cuff and he worked through both the physical and mental/emotional components of the injury. Ilya helped me to remove blockages in my body and I’ve since been able to rebuild the area with more strength and efficiency. Highly recommended!”
-David Evans, April 27, 2011
“Ilya is AMAZING! He knows just what your body needs every time and it’s always different. I’m always completely blissed out after one of his massages. I can’t say enough positive things about him and recommend him highly.”
-Allison Hodge, April 28, 2011
“Ilya, is a wonderful healer, attentive and detailed oriented, he knows his Chinese medicine well; I highly recommend his treatments and services.”
-Akiva Satnarayan, April 27, 2011
“Ilya is a very talented acupuncturist. He is flexible and very sensitive to everything that is going on with me. He is focused on the entire person and treats stress, injury and for keeping the body balanced in general. I highly recommend him for acupuncture for illness, injury or as a stress balancer in our crazy society where we are all so busy! I feel much more balanced and at peace whenever I see him. He is an excellent counselor as well and I feel I get a great psychotherapy session when ever I need one. I highly recommend him”
-Jennifer Lunski, May 23, 2011
“Ilya gave the best massage I’ve ever had. I like hard pressure. He seemed to know. His knowledge of healing is deeper than other practitioners I’ve experienced. Out of all the modalities I’ve tried (Thai, Rolfing, Shiatsu), I didn’t know I liked Tui Na and Chi Nei Tsang (stomach massage) the most until I had a massage from Ilya.
I asked how to alleviate my swayback so I can dance and do martial arts easier. He generously suggested an easy, assisted yoga-like position I can do at home.
Then I went on a limb and asked for acupressure points to develop my intuition. He walked me through points and breathing techniques I could do on my own.
That’s more than what I got from other massages. Thanks, Ilya!”

“Ilya has healing hands!! I really enjoyed his massage treatment; The massage he gave me left me feeling incredibly rejuvenated and refreshed. He is also very warm and compassionate- I felt very comfortable with him and he is incredibly professional and replies promptly to appointment scheduling which is always a plus I would definitely recommend Ilya!!”
-Sahar M, Sep 24, 2012
“Ilya is one of the best massage therapists I have ever worked with. He is very intuitive and used acupuncture and sound therapy to supplement massage. I highly recommend him.”
-Slawek W, April 25, 2012
“Ilya is the most incredible massage therapist I have received a treatment from. He knows exactly how to make your body heal. His talent and knowledge of the body and his effusive personality will make you feel renewed. How often do you go for a massage and after you come out you say “This is exactly what I needed and wanted.” Every time I had a treatment with Ilya, that is the exact sentiment I have.Enjoy.”
-Sasi N, april 16,2008
“In my first appointment with Ilya he was able to relieve the chronic pain I had in my hip. This had been going on for ten years and all sorts of other treatments had not succeeded. He is an excellent massage therapist and acupuncturist and has a pleasant office. He cares about and for his clients. He is a wonderful talented person.”
-Jane S, Feb 24, 2012
“Ilya Yacobson is the best massage therapist I’ve had. His knowledge of the body, eastern medicine, acupuncture, and the healing arts combine to make a session paradoxically relaxing and energizing. Ilya is a genuine, warm person on top of that.”
-Jackie P/ CN, May 7, 2011
“Ilya is a healer. He is marvelous!”
-Minnette L, may 17, 2011
“I want to recommend Ilya Yacobson to anyone that’s needing healing. I feel like Ilya has what it takes to address symptoms from the densely physical to the etheric planes. This is rare to find, in my experience. Ilya has a heart of gold that encapsulates the space while he’s working. He works with such compassion and love that it’s easy to feel safe in his presence and comfortable sharing seemingly anything. He holds a lightness of being and depth simultaneously and seems to have a bag of healing tools sourced in the otherworld that he’s drawing from. Yes, he’s definitely tapped into the spiritual realm. I feel like he’s also someone whom I recommend to a child that’s 7 years old or an elderly woman and feel like he can hold the space just the same. He’s very dynamic and capable. It is with my whole heart that I recommend Ilya! :)”

from IO yelp:
“Then, I tried Ilya. He’s so AMAZING, I almost forgot all about my first experience at IO. He totally GETS IT. I teach yoga. My body is tight, athletic and has certain kinks. He always knows what needs what. I’m not a body worker, I can’t explain it well but Ilya is THE BEST.
If you have a chance get a massage from him followed by an acupuncture session, splurge! Treat yourself! It’s awesome.”
-Nadine J, 2012
“Two words: Ilya Jacobson. Definitely the best massage I’ve ever received. So good I (1) have gone back (2) remembered his name (3) want to try other services. Massages are definitely a “treat” for me and I find the quality of his massages as well as the quality of the spa to be a very good value.
