Lisa is an experienced holistic Kinesiologist and Mind-Body Medicine practitioner, who has also trained as a counsellor, providing professional care and support to those who are at the end of their tether, confused, in pain and unsure of what to do next.
She specialises in anxiety, pain, trauma, grief and loss, intergenerational trauma and epigenetics, men's mental health, autoimmune disease and phobias.
Lisa guides her clients to find the underlying causes of their pain, confusion or stress, ... so they can live with ease and confidence again, feeling light and energised.
Other areas Lisa helps with include sleep and digestive disorders, headaches, depression, hormonal imbalance, confidence and clarity.
Lisa uses a three-step process in her treatment, whether in person in Collaroy, or remotely via Zoom. Firstly, she does a thorough assessment, including history of illness and health; secondly, a conversation to understand stresses and goals; and thirdly, a Kinesiology session to calm the nervous system, and free stagnation and blockages to ultimately bring calm, flow and balance to mind, body and spirit.
As a counsellor in her early career, Lisa quickly discovered that our emotions are held in our bodies, and that our physical health directly relates to our emotional and spiritual health.
When she had children though, Lisa was introduced to traditional and complementary medicine including Traditional Chinese Medicine, naturopathy, acupuncture and energetic medicine. The revelation that the ability to access the physical, emotional and spiritual as one then triggered her journey into Complementary Medicine and Holistic Kinesiology.
Lisa says that when we are healthy and in balance, our innate frequencies and Qi are in tune and flowing freely. When out of balance, our frequencies and Qi are stagnant or blocked. Holistic Kinesiology enables her to guide and work with individual frequencies, to bring you into calm, flow and balance.
Lisa is passionate about using her skills to help people find themselves, to find their heart, and so be able to live with purpose and worth, being guided by their innate wisdom and intuition. Read more
