Hi, I am Lisa! I was born and raised in Washington (no I don’t have webbed feet.). I knew for a long time I wanted to be a massage therapist but was waiting for the right time, after a few dead end jobs I called up Everest College (formerly Ashmead) and enrolled. I finished massage school in 2010 and wasted no time finding a job; within five minutes of my massage interview I was hired!
I had many amazing instructors throughout my schooling and I took a little something from each of them and made it my own. After my year long Massage/Spa program I continued a 3 month course through Everest for Sports Massage which taught me about muscle firing patterns and less invasive ways to decrease hypertonic muscles.
Many of my patients I have worked on call me the “digger” cause I tend to find their “knots” and dig them out, my passion is to make each person who gets on my table feel better then when they walked in the door. Currently I see a lot of auto accidents, L&I, and pre/post surgical patients, I work for a chiropractor and a well respected Massage Therapist in the Puyallup area.
My techniques range from Swedish, deep tissue, chair, contract/relax, post isometric relaxation, reciprocal inhibition, treatment, sports, and postural dysfunctions. I am looking forward to being a part of Dr. Dot’s team and finding all your knots you didn’t know you had, till then take care and drink extra water!
