Aloha and Hello!
My name is Lisa and I have been a practicing Licensed Massage Therapist since 2002. I was born and raised in sunny California; as well as practicing Massage, I also enjoy the outdoors, travel, yoga, reading, listening to music, and spending time with my husband and pets! I have extensive experience with clients of all ages.
My preferred modalities include: Myofascial Release, Lomi Lomi (Hawaiian) Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Thai Stretching Massage, classic Swedish Massage, and general energy work that is incorporated into the massage. I believe in using the Breath to allow the client to assist their own selves in releasing tension, particularly that which is caused by stress or emotion.
I prefer "full handed" massage that is simultaneously Therapeutic, provides a sense of Relaxation, and allows a client to move closer to a fully-balanced self. All massage therapy is specific to the individual's needs at that time, and I am always open to suggestions.
I strongly believe in learning new techniques and networking in the Massage and Bodywork Community. I have plans in the near future to explore the following additional modalities: Cranial Sacral Therapy, Cupping Therapy, Integrative Stretching, Foot Reflexology, Watsu (water) Massage, and Trigger Point Therapy. I am looking forward to many more years of learning and practice!
I am very excited to be a part of the Dr. Dot Team in Northern California, and for the opportunity to meet fabulous people, like you!
