Lisa graduated with honours and has been in good standing with the CMTO since 2004. She treats an array of ailments with traditional Swedish massage techniques and has additional training in deep tissue therapy, myofascial release, acupressure, pregnancy massage, cupping, kinesio tapping and Micro Current Point Stimulation (integration of tense and acupuncture without needles).
As an alternative to massage, Lisa is also a certified Bowen therapist. Bowen is a hands-on therapy that addresses the central nervous system and soft tissue, much like massage, but with no lotion or repetitive strokes yet with very gentle sequenced “muscles roles” to address acute and chronic pain.
Growing up as an active individual, primarily as a dancer, and having a background in Pilates, Lisa understands the importance of discipline, body awareness and believes in preventative care. Whether you are an adolescent athlete, weekend warrior, suffer from repetitive strain or a retiree trying to resolve chronic pain, Lisa will do her best to educate, and help you achieve balance. Knowledge is power!

My name is Priya Jhaveri and I am an Energy Healer, Lightworker, Soul Guide, Intuitive, Holistic Nutritionist with a background in Psychology! I started my practice long ago when I developed Chronic Illness from a lifetime of Trauma. These two areas were the catalyst of my personal healing journey.
After years of symptoms popping up over time I developed a chronic illness, it got so bad and I received no answers for my struggles so I took my health and wellbeing into my own hands and that’s when the real magic began.
From there, I worked on healing my body through Energy Work, Trauma Body Work and Nutrition; eventually I started to feel better than I ever had in my entire life!
I, then, started a Healing Practice where I fell in love with combining Energy Healing, Trauma Body Work, Guided Meditation Healing and my Intuitive gifts that I’ve had since I was a child and eventually started to help clients just like me!
