“Deganit and Nuurvana are truly a unique experience, using intuition, acupuncture, and herbs, for mental, spiritual, emotional, and physical healing.  You will experience deep insight that can lead to wonderful revelations and healing.” – Mayo W.


With the Nuurvana Method™, your mind and body heal due to the profound shift on the spirit level.

Nuurvana is a powerful way of addressing your primary health concerns. Rather than reviewing the signs and symptoms and deducing what the cause of your imbalance may be, intuitive acupuncture goes straight to the root. Immediately.

During my acupuncture studies, I always felt limited by the traditional intake methods. I decided to start implementing my intuitive readings and a few energetic healing modalities with my clients and noticed an immediate and dramatic impact in the results. Everyone felt a significant healing shift in their sessions, and an increased rate of improvement with their health. I realized then that this would be the only way I would practice acupuncture.

As each of the healing modalities we offer here are energy-based, it only makes sense for the intake be energy-based. Traditional treatment uses the limited rational mind, which is often influenced by our own personal life experiences and judgments. With the Nuurvana Method™, the entire treatment is navigated by the intuitive reading. The reading space is expansive, comprehensive, and enables an elevated perspective to derive your specific treatment protocol.

In the words of Albert Einstein, “We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.”

Elevated perspective is key.

“I absolutely love Deganit and the Nuurvana center. I had originally started visiting for acupuncture to assist with stress at work and weight loss.  Deganit offered fantastic insight as to why events were occurring in my life and solutions to try and change the results which were practical and easy to implement.  Although I will always need to be conscience of the types of food I eat, the tools I have received from her help me daily with not just work stress, but any stress in life which will in turn also help me with food issues.” – Alexis W.



“I’ve had many readings in my lifetime and that has given me a lot of context. What is clear to me is that Ilka is connected to her source. She is a clear channel and has a delicious mama-bear-type of LOVE that radiates from her core. Ilka is POSITIVE. Ilka is HILARIOUS. Ilka will TELL ME LIKE IT IS. She is insightful, accurate, playful, kind, loving and direct. I just adore her. I will be back, again and again.” – Joe T., Beverly Hills, CA

Do you have a big (or small) decision to make? Would you benefit from some clarity and insight around a recent situation or long-past event? Lost a loved one you’d like to connect with? Looking for career guidance? Seeking “the one”? Or perhaps wondering if your current person is “it?”

Simply put, clairvoyance is “clear vision.” With your permission, I’ll use my gift of clairvoyance to illuminate the various aspects present in your space that are affecting you right here and now. I have thousands of readings under my belt. I know I can help you. And I’m thrilled and honored to be a part of your healing journey!

Oftentimes, we’re fueled by energy that’s rooted in the past and out of alignment with their current self – this may manifest as repeating negative patterns, non-healing wounds (both emotional and physical), lethargy, depression, anxiety, and so much more. Together, we’ll flush all non-beneficial “contracts” from your space. Anything that no longer serves you, is holding you back, or just making you feel less than the amazing being you truly are. I’ve found that physical and physiological symptoms tend to resolve immediately after this energetic shift in energy. It’s a validating, empowering, and healing experience.

We will explore the “whys” of your current situation, visit and learn from your past lives, and heal and release old energy. We’ll discover how to best manifest your dream self and your dream life, and so much more! And, you’ll receive a recording of your sessions for future reference.

“Ilka is one of THE best and most professional people I have ever worked with. She is a spiritual healer from the Gods, sent down to Earth to help us scrambling loss souls. Her readings are locked in and have proved to be beneficial in my life. The depth of her connection and her spirit is overwhelmingly amazing and I can’t wait for for my next reading. If you are looking for someone to give you insight to what is going on in your world Ilka is the one to speak with.”- Daryl J.

I’ll be sitting across from you or on the phone with you. You’ll make yourself comfortable and I’ll start the recorder and the timer and set an intention for us. I’ll close my eyes, and immediately images and messages will appear. I’ll interpret them, then ask if you have any questions; if you do we’ll explore into them one by one – usually the more specific a question, the more detailed the answers will be. Feel free to cut me off any time or ask for further clarification – this is totally interactive and feels like a conversation. However, while questions are absolutely welcome, they are by no means necessary – there are always messages. As our time together comes to a close, I’ll ask you for your last questions, and once the reading is complete, I’ll open my eyes and turn off the recorder (If we’re in person, I’ll probably want to give you a big hug!)


Easy Peasy! When scheduling your session, there is space for you to provide me with “notes.” All you gotta do is write “phone” in the notes section and I’ll call you at the provided number at our session time. Please note that you will be scheduling yourself in Eastern Standard Time and take into account possible time differences between us. If you don’t hear from me within 5 minutes of our start time, please do email me.Ready to start? Click the Appointments Tab to schedule your appointment!

If you’ve experienced this amazing wellness tool, you know it’s an ancient, efficient healing modality that addresses and assists in clearing emotional, physical, psychosomatic, and psycho-spiritual imbalances. But even if you’re the most seasoned ‘puncture patient, you’ve never had it like you will at Nuurvana!

If you’re new to acupuncture, or if you’ve tried every healing modality out there and have yet to see results: keep hope alive! Be it from anxiety to digestive issues to chronic pain – there’s an energetic component to your unique imbalance that I’m delighted to address. Let’s get to the root of the problem, heal the heck out of it, and prevent it from ever presenting itself again.


Your session will look, at first, like a “traditional” acupuncture appointment. We’ll discuss how you’ve been feeling while I make notes; I will take your pulse and look at your tongue. Then, I’ll perform some practical magic: fire-cupping, serums or essential oils, and, of course, the insertion of hair-thin acupuncture needles.

Once you’re all set and comfy on the table, the really good part starts. I’ll set an intention and begin your clairvoyant intuitive reading. I’ll share with you the images and messages that arise and we’ll address the energetic or spiritual component of your imbalance.

Interactive in nature, the Clairvoyant Reading™ and the acupuncture work in tandem to give you an extraordinary healing adventure. The acupuncture creates a parasympathetic response that allows for a deeper acceptance of the profound insight and answers presented by the reading, which in turn deepens your ability to more fully receive the therapeutic benefits of the acupuncture points. It’s astounding and simultaneous (imagine some sweet double helix action)!

This healing experience is exceptionally specific and custom-tailored to YOU!

It’s fantastic to be so deeply involved in your own transformational process, and with all the insight and dialogue that comes from the reading, it’ll be impossible not to feel anything but liberated and inspired by your own magic! So, be your own best friend, and support yourself throughout your transformational process. Come on in and advance your journey to optimal health!
