Reiki/Energy Healing

Reiki is a Japanese energy healing modality that is both gentle and deeply relaxing. Lisa offers Reiki with a light, non-invasive touch on or slightly off the body. Reiki energy helps clear and re-balance energy centers or Chakras in the body, to promote physical, emotional and spiritual healing.  

Reiki works very well in combination with Massage Therapy or on its own.

Transformational Life Coach

Life Purpose Statement

"I inspire women to connect with their authentic Self and realize their true potential."

Lisa has completed her Certification from the Quantum Success Coaching Academy, as a Law of Attraction Life Coach.  With a deep understanding of the Universal Laws, Lisa guides clients through energy work, exercises and meditations, so clients may identify, isolate and clear old conditioning and limiting beliefs that are keeping them 'stuck'.  Through co-creative work/play, clients are inspired to realize their limitless potential.


Mindfulness Meditation, Alchemy Crystal Singing Bowl Sound Healing

Lisa has Advanced Mindfulness Meditation training from the University of Toronto. Mindfulness is the practice of bringing ones awareness to the present moment and noticing, without judgement, any thoughts or feelings that arise. Mindfulness Meditation can help decrease symptoms of pain, stress, depression and anxiety, and improves immune function.
