What Patients Say
 
     
– Michael, Client

“I signed up to work with Lillian because I was in a space of utter torment. It was a point where being present caused me to be fearful and in complete panic. The attacks were frequent: my heart hurt and raced out of control. As a result of iRest work with Lillian, I am able to recognize triggers more quickly and understand why I am feeling anxious or fearful. When faced with a stressful situation, I am able to calm down my nervous system and be present with the emotions that come. My bodily reactions are no longer controlling my mind and my senses are wide open. I will be forever grateful for her guidance and support.”
