On the history of the Palucki®Method
In 2008, at the age of 62, Ilona Palucki discovered what we now call the Palucki method when she tried a process that she had envisioned with a person who had been sexually abused in childhood. The effect of completely dissolving the negative emotions was repeated with other people on each trial.

Her son Patrick Palucki eventually began a search for how to think and communicate about the phenomenon, as well as for it’s causes. He later recruited scientists and organized various research projects among this a peer-reviewed university pilot study.

After about 10 years of further development and fine-tuning of the method since its discovery, the Palucki Institute was founded in 2017.

Ilona Palucki experienced emotional and physical abuse in childhood herself. Although this took a significant toll in some areas of life, Ilona Palucki was able to to make herself be completely emotionally free from these experiences. According to her son, she is “shining from inside of herself, one of the most contented and independently happy people you can imagine”.

Ilona Palucki is a holistic healer and coach who specializes in addressing psychological trauma and adverse life experiences. In addition to practicing at the Palucki Institute Retreat Center in the South of France, she offers her healing internationally, typically addressing audiences of diverse cultural backgrounds. She discovered the Palucki Method for Healing Trauma and Adverse Life Experiences, in 2008, when helping a colleague who was suffering from childhood abuse.

The Palucki Method for Healing Trauma and Adverse Life Experiences has been studied at several universities and the results have been presented at science conferences. Furthermore, a clinical validation study was conducted which resulted in the publication of a peer-reviewed paper.

A published author on dance and femininity, Ms. Palucki was previously a dance teacher in Munich who engaged in dance therapy and body-work. This contributed to a deeper holistic understanding which has helped form the body-work elements of the Palucki Method today. On her journey she explored and practiced various modalities of the wisdom traditions of Buddhism and shamanism of the Americas. Ilona looks back onto a life where a diverse range of experiences have come together and deepened the formation and implementation of her method.
