About Me

I’m Irene Lyon.

I give YOU the Master Key to supercharged energy, unshakable confidence, and the antidote to stubborn health issues that you’ve tried everything to fix.

(Because as you work towards becoming that remarkable human being that is your birthright the last thing you need is burnout, an upper limit problem, depression, anxiety or other pesky health problems rearing their ugly heads.)

This Master Key also helps you to…

  • be remarkably productive in projects and tasks you do on any given day.
  • think and create with crystal-clear focus (instead of getting stuck in “brain fog”).
  • go to sleep peacefully and wake up rested in the morning.
  • excrete toxic waste products (um, poop!) with ease and frequency.
  • tap into that core, intuitive guidance and be more in the “flow.”
  • stay peaceful and calm during times of intense pressure (and deadlines).


Before I tell you more, let me say: I know you may have tried everything from green smoothies to hanging in the woods with shamans to get mind & body breakthroughs.

But… (I’m willing to bet)… you haven’t tried THIS.

I’m talking about going to the SOURCE of your energy, creativity, and all your physical, mental, and emotional processes…


To put it simply… the nervous system governs EVERYTHING.

An out-of-whack nervous system is the reason for problems like chronic fatigue, chronic pain, digestive troubles, depression, anxiety, and panic attacks. (That’s the short list.)

The good news? A regulated nervous system provides you with the energy, resources, and drive to do what you’re meant to do on the planet.

And that’s what I do with you. I help you regulate your nervous system so you can up-level your entire life — in a way that supports your body and your purpose.

“I had to admit when I started my session with Irene I was a little skeptical. I’ve done a lot of “inner block” work, meditation, focusing, etc. I know myself pretty well and my “stories” so I was worried we were just going to go over my same old stories and excuses. Boy was I wrong! In literally what seemed like a few minutes, Irene got me to slow down, focus in on myself in a new way despite all the work I’ve done. I was able to quickly make links between problems plaguing my business life and challenges to my health. It was amazing how connecting the strands in these two different areas of my life started to uncover one solution that would work for both. I feel like I now have one simple path and solution to tackle two of the thorniest recurring issues in my life. At the risk of sounding cliche-ish, I was a skeptic but now I’m a believer. Irene is the secret, fast-acting potion that everybody needs!”

The 21 Day Nervous System Tune-Up course helped me better understand, “What the h*^! .. is going on in my body! A fundamental shift in my life was learning how to follow my impulses, and it has made such a difference to actually now understand the science of my body and stress responses. When I can understand what’s going on I can better “be with” my body and its sensations (emotions) and just be present to them, rather than being overwhelmed by them. The way Irene taught the complicated science made learning it easy. I enjoyed the entire course and I’m looking forward to learning more and deepening my awareness.”

Who Am I and How Can I Help You?

I’ll tell ya this.

I’ve got credentials. Loads of them. (I’ll get to those in a sec.)

First, a quick summary…

My method comes down to a “scientuitive” perspective.

(Meaning: I use a blend of science, alternative therapies, and intuition to facilitate your body’s natural ability to heal itself.)

My first “apprenticeship” to the nervous system — where I honed my Jedi-like intuition — was through holding hundreds of animals while they were being euthanized or put under for surgery. (My dad is a veterinarian, so this was my after-school job. It’s a deeply delicate dance to hold a panic-stricken animal and help it to feel safe.)

The scientific part of my work is based in Somatic Experiencing and the Feldenkrais Method. (Read the full story of how I discovered this work here.)

For the past 10 years, I’ve helped everyone from Olympic athletes, to wheelchair-bound basketball players, to folks suffering from severe PTSD, to big-deal executives, to online stars.

I’ve seen my clients miraculously improve from back pain, knee pain, chronic pain, fear of public speaking, digestive issues, severe depression, anxiety, developmental trauma, shock trauma, ritual abuse, strokes, and head injuries. (Yet another short list!)

The best part? When they discover how working with this one system (the nervous system), leads to everything falling into place — and their entire lives change for the better.

“I’m in the mids200x200-gretchen-wegnert of working with the fabulous Irene around how to (once and for all) heal my migraines, which come up frequently as a result of the stress I experience building a six figure business. I’ve tried everything to heal this combination of stress/migraine, including therapy, massage, medication, and more. I trust Irene implicitly and I’ve already experienced that her holistic approach gets uncannily close to the heart of the matter about the ways that my old childhood trauma (that is still stuck in my body, and rears it’s ugly head when my I feel anxious about my business) keeps me stuck and stressed out and in pain. In our short time together, I’ve begun to notice with extreme detail what is happening during my stress cycle, so that I can interrupt the stress, and transform it into energy rather than pain. Irene is a master healer. As I grow my business, I see Irene as a central collaborator in helping me stress less so that I can be of more and more service to my clients and the world.”

Here are those shiny credentials…

  • For over 10 years, I’ve studied the work of Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais, founder of The Feldenkrais Method. I’m a Feldenkrais Practitioner, and have gone through a 4-year intensive Professional Feldenkrais Teacher Training.
  • As a Feldenkrais Method practitioner, I’ve taught public classes, built a private practice, and even started a project dedicated to educating more people about the wonders of this work and how it is needed in the world.
  • I’m also a Certified Somatic Experiencing® Practitioner, with certifications like Somatic Experiencing® Professional Training and Somatic Experiencing Post-Advanced Level Master Classes. I also assist at the Master Class level.
  • And my background in exercise physiology and biomedical science goes back to university. I got my Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology from Simon Fraser University (British Columbia, Canada). Later, I received a Master of Science in Research School of Health and Biomedical Science, University of Wollongong (New South Wales, Australia).
