“A trusted friend of mine recommended Allison Post to me. At the time I was in pain, under the care of an eminent gastroenterologist, and in need of relief from both my physical discomfort and the accompanying emotional distress of illness. Allison brought her deep and multi-disciplined approach to each healing session; I especially benefited from her healthy respect for and understanding of 21st century Western modalities as she applied many Eastern practices of integral (whole person) healing. I found Allison to be personable, professional, and intentional. She resolved my health issues, healed my spirit, and educated me so that I now have my own self-healing practices. She’s a gifted healer and a gift to the world.”

How I practice and work with you
Together we engage in a creative process that I hope inspires you to reach your goals. I support and honor you as an individual and an expert in your own life! We work together, collaboratively, to find clarity and alignment in what you wish to achieve. We embark on a discovery process that is in sync with your needs and goals so that the solutions and life supports are self generated, and strategies that you establish feel realistic.
I am available to help you clarify the current situation, past history, obstacles and successes, and potentially identify and explore patterns or beliefs that might be inhibiting change and limiting the joy in your life.
I am a deep listener. Genuinely curious, non judgemental, and wanting to serve.
What we do together
First, an introductory session that will help me understand what you are experiencing now, that you have sought help for. I will have sent you an intake form and we will go over it, and I will ask further questions to see if we can uncover some of the root causes of what is ailing you. During this session we will decide together if any testing would help us in finding the optimum path to healing. We can also arrive at the best schedule for future sessions together.
Tests that I use
HPA stress profile: This tests helps us evaluate the level of stress at four different periods of the day, how it may be affecting your metabolism and hormones, sleep, and the health of your gut. It includes Cortisol x 4, DHEA-S, Estradiol, Estriol, Estrone, Melatonin, Progesterone, Testosterone, and Secretory IgA. Secretory IGA can help us understand the state of the immune system of our gut and how stress might be impacting us. This test is taken over the course of a day with four saliva samples.
GI screen: This is for those with chronic illness or digestive problems that you have not had success understanding or alleviating. It includes Ova & Parasites, Antigens of Giardia lamblia, Cryptosporidium parvum, Helicobacter pylori, Bacterial Culture, Yeast Culture, Occult Blood. It is taken with stool samples over a 3 day period.
Food sensitivity testing: The test I use is one of the most innovative and clinically useful tests for hidden inflammatory responses to foods and food-chemicals. If there is body wide inflammation, unexplained food reactions, autoimmunity, or findings of gut dysbiosis, this blood test can help us to provide sometimes quick and lasting relief.
When we work together, either online or in person, I help you explore in your body where there is pain, inflammation, and places that feel stuck. Through breathwork, learning to be in your body in a gentle and supportive way, and developing resources that can be used daily, we work together to find an opening in your awareness to relax your system so that it can heal.
We can include recordings of embodiment explorations and meditations that we create during the session, for you to listen to on your own, or use listening programs that I have developed. I can teach you breath and touch techniques that will help you move through some of the obstacles to feeling good in your body. I also offer many other resources—visceral bodywork, craniosacral therapy, nutritional guidance, sleep hygiene support, stress reduction, exercise and functional fitnessu—that are aligned to your energy level and test results, as well as support by way of referrals, if needed.
