Depending on each client's individual needs, she is capable of crafting a treatment program that suits their wellness goals and improves their well-being.
Lisa is an avid exerciser with a love of the outdoors, and encourages all of her clients to take an active role in their health by staying fit and participating in a workout they love. All sessions with Lisa are collaborative in this manner, and she teaches her clients that, "We're improving their health together. I can't do it without them!"
Lisa, a practitioner of Oriental medicine and a Chinese herbalist, has also held certifications as an ACE personal trainer for more than a decade.

A believer in client education, Lisa explains that teaching clients about their condition and why certain methods yield specific results is paramount to their progress. And progress is the ultimate goal. "I love being an Oriental medical practitioner because the look in someone's eyes or the tone of their voice when they are healed fills me with confidence, motivation and pure joy," Lisa says.
