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.
A list of assumptions that Lisa brings to her work:
• 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 the "tao" or "way" of being whole and can digest and release those life experiences that have been "stuck on hold."
