The Basic Course
The ILM Basic Course is an annual course, providing an initial introduction to the method.
The Course teaches the basic principles of the language of the Ilan Lev Method. It includes movement lessons on a mattress, as well as touch therapy in pairs on a treatment table.
The Course is divided into four sections, according to 4 separate modules; Back Module, Side Module, Seating Module, and lastly a Stomach Module. The Modules are arranged according to body position, in accordance with the patient positioning during treatment. In the first module, the patient lies on his/her back, in the second module he/she curls upon his/her side, in the third module the patient sits on the bed, and in the fourth module, the patient lies on his/stomach.
A module is arranged in pre-determined therapeutic actions, that are learned to give the Practitioner a “playground” to search through. Through this, the practitioner moves the patient from anywhere in the body, and in every possible direction, through which itself speaks with the whole system, the patient's body, the practitioner's body, and the whole of creation.
During the course, students are taught the places and directions in the body through which the patient is moved lightly, with great attention, and in ways of 'games' and stimulation. All this is done in order to clarify the body's condition, and to flood it with the proper knowledge, inherent in its being, for its use.
The basic course includes the following sessions throughout the course of the year:
- Opening the day with "Quickies" - Short-term treatments; a quick and refreshing run on the treatment done in a few minutes.
- Movement Classes using the Ilan Lev Method which is usually done lying on a mattress
- Learning the treatment technique through modules and segments is done on a treatment table.
The course is intended for anyone who is interested in helping others and going through a significant process of personal development. It is also intended for anyone who is intrigued and wants to improve abilities and develop his or her self-awareness. In our opinion, all the knowledge needed is already inside of you, by definition, and there is no need for anything more. Our job is to challenge the knowledge within you, stimulate it and bring it to the surface; nothing more.
The ILM Movement Course

The Advanced Course
The ILM Advanced Course is the second year in the biennial program for the certification of practitioners. The course deals with the deepening and expansion of the therapeutic technique. In addition, the participants are exposed and experience specializations that emerge like branches from the Ilan Lev Method 'tree'. For example, in additional modules, knowledge of the energetic component, extensions division, therapeutic meditation, treatment of musicians, improving vision and understanding the method - the theoretical background and more.
By the end of the first year, the student is already licensed to treat, and the certificate is valid for two years from the end of the course. Only after completing the Advanced Course (obtaining a certificate and completing the internship), the student is certified as an ILM Practitioner.
Upon completion of the required, the practitioners join the ILM Members' Circle of the Method, which provides practitioners a constant and ongoing dialogue over time, and provides one another with a supportive environment. The ILM Members' Circle offers activities and workshops, related to deepening the technique, and exposure to specific specializations. The practitioner must keep up to date with the new developments of the Method, for him or herself and for clientele.
