Lisa’s Orientation

Lisa’s work evolves through a combination of her own inner practice and meditation, her relationships with her clients and her ongoing continuing education and self-directed study.

Lisa believes that:

  • Human beings are built to self-regulate and heal.
  • Information about the energetic signature of a person’s state of health is readily available by feeling the flows of energy at a range of locations and levels of depth on the body itself and fields surrounding it.
  • Restoring the flow of energy through an area can have wide-reaching beneficial effects.
  • By accessing information stored in our body tissues we reconnect  with being whole and can digest and release those life experiences that have been “stuck on hold.”
