Lisa has literally saved my life! Several years ago I had a severe tear to my IT band. Let’s just say it’s pretty much crippling. I spent a gazillion dollars with Orthopedic surgeons and physical therapy. I was still a mess. The doctor basically told me that this injury was going to be with me the rest of my life. Then I discovered Lisa!!

Lisa has the most amazing understanding of the human body. She could teach all these other “professionals” a thing or two. She has given me my life back and I’m forever grateful.

Pharmaceuticals got nuthin’ on Lisa!! When I leave from a session with Lisa I feel like I’m sitting in a hug tub of warm pancake syrup. Don’t believe me? Go see her and see for yourself.

In short, Lisa is a great person who truly cares about her customers. She is not some Fruit Loop massage therapist that did minimal studies to qualify for a license. Lisa is constantly seeking out further education in her field. She is a true professional.

Additionally, Lisa’s new location is super nice. She has worked really hard to get to this place in her life. She truly deserves it. Now, you deserve a trip to Lisa! Make your appointment now and you will be feeling like a new person.

After I saw you on March 10th, the pain in my shoulder is completely gone! I can hardly believe that one treatment eliminated the pain, but it worked. This is a problem I have been dealing with for about six months prior to seeing you. I was so impressed with the way you did the deep tissue without causing me discomfort. I wish I could see you more often. I will try to come back frequently when I am in Knoxville.-Jane C. North Carolina




When I found Lisa I was literally at the end of my rope. She not only tied a knot for me to hold on to, but also with each visit has helped me climb back on top. I am feeling stronger than ever thanks to her expertise and caring touch.

I have been a client of Lisa’s since August of 2007 after three sessions with someone who performed Rolfing in Knoxville but suddenly had to leave the area because of an ailing family member. I initially hurt my back in 2001 and managed to get periodic relief with physical therapy and chiropractic visits. By the time I visited Lisa I felt as though something was “twisted” from my lower back down my right leg. I thought if I could just “pop” my leg, everything would be fine. My primary care doctor was considering steroid/pain relief injections to my back, but I decided to give this type of therapy a try. Working in a doctor’s office I understood that the injections themselves would create more scar tissue. Everyone looked at me like I was crazy when I tried to descirbe my pain, but not Lisa. After performing a thorough exam and listening to my history, she knew exactly where the problem was and what needed to be done. The problem wasn’t even with my right side but my left! I decided to take the plunge and do the 10-step program, and I went from not being able to rest at night or hardly being able to walk across the parking lot at work without considerable pain to being able to walk around Disney with my 9-year-old during fall break of last year … and just after the 5th session. I can honestly say I would not have been able to do that without Lisa’s help. She is a lifesaver in my book! I’d highly recommend her to anyone, and she’ll not only be a wonderful therapist but a true friend!
