Lisa combines traditional physical therapy with holistic healing modalities to achieve the best optimal results for her patients. Lisa is an experienced practitioner and uses hands-on acupressure and energy-release techniques which assist in moving and releasing any stuck energy in the body which can cause dis-ease helping to bring the body back into homeostasis. Lisa is passionate about teaching her patients the self-care skills needed to be able to manage their pain and get them moving and back to their lives. Lisa offers Somatic Breathwork classes and one-on-one sessions to her patients who want to go deeper into their emotional healing to find out where they are holding back stuck energy in their body.
