The INITIAL ASSESSMENT AND CONSULTATION helps us get past the symptoms (pain, decreased function) and treat the root of the issue. We analyze standing postural alignment, gait, and movement patterns/sport skills needed by the individual. In addition to a well trained eye, we employ the Functional Movement Screen and the Professional Yoga Therapy Institute's Diagnostic Algorithms. Of course, we put this together with information we receive from the medical community, coaches, and trainers.
Not all of our clients require an Initial Assessment. If you are involved in sports, have injuries, and looking for a new protocol, etc., the assessment is a necessary tool. Assessments are performed by Lisa Jamison; please let us help decide which practitioner and modalities would best meet your goals.
The fee for this 90-minute consultation is $175.00.
Think about what happens to your body when you are in pain. Some muscles compensate, or work harder than they are supposed to. Other muscles may "splint" to keep the injured body part from moving. Some movements are so painful that those muscles simply shut down. When these things happen you start to walk funny, hold your head in a different position, acquire odd looking postures...or just sit in a chair until it goes away.
Our goal is to find your body's "bad habits" and "reprogram" you. Together we stimulate what needs to work, and calm down things that have been overworking. Think about it this way: anyone can get you stretched out, relaxed, and comfortable on a massage table. Is that going to do you any good when you get up a walk? Run or ride your bike? We will help you get rid of those faulty patterns and establish new ones that are healthier and more functional.
Part of our process is to teach you how to maintain what we've done during our time together. Stretching, strengthening, and focus is all part of the "homework". The more you participate in this part of the program, the more quickly your body adapts. This means less time with us and more time doing the things you like.
We have a variety of MASSAGE AND BODYWORK SERVICES. Classic or Swedish massage is used for relaxation, stress reduction, normalizing body tissue, and flushing.
In addition, we offer advanced and specialty services. We hope our dialogue with you helps discern the best option for your needs. We utilize techniques including Myofascial, Neuromuscular Reeducation/Therapies, muscle-specific, and deep tissue. We also specialize in Medi-Cupping, and Reiki.

We use YOGA INSTRUCTION not only as an important part of our training programs but also as a stand-alone service. Lisa has advanced training in Medical Therapeutic Yoga in addition to her Yoga Alliance approved 200-hr training. We enjoy teaching our long-term clients and also find that private instruction makes for good class-readiness. Lisa specializes in therapeutic yoga so enjoys using yoga as corrective therapy.
Sessions are scheduled within her office or by special arrangement in your own quiet space.
Private yoga instruction fee is $100/hr. Package rates are available.
In addition, Lisa is part of the regular teaching schedule at Lucky Cat Yoga with Restorative Yoga (F 5:45pm). She teaches workshops at a number of yoga studios.

YOGA FOR A HEALTHY BACK
If you've ever groaned "Oh, my aching back!" you are not alone! In this series of classes we will take a look at your posture and learn to start with your "weakest link". We will work to relax that which is too tight and short while "turning on" those muscles that are underutilized. Corrective strategies will be used in this practice that combines asana, meditation, and breathwork.
TAKE A BALANCE BREAK
Coaching for healthy lifestyle, balanced living, and well-being.
Just like our business practice, YOU are a multidimensional person. We love to help you create a balance and harmony by examining the many facets of YOU and helping you move and grow into wellness.
We put your heart and soul in the center. Our Bio-Psycho-Social model takes into consideration both evaluation and change in the physical, energetic, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual realms of your life. Balance of these elements lead to greater contentment, overall wellness, and improved health/function.
Our model also represents the five koshas of Ayurveda, the sister science of Yoga. We will use the starfish to guide you to classes and programs that fit your health and lifestyle needs.
Programs run from an initial consultation to on-going assistance and are tailored to your needs. Meet with Lisa in person, via phone, or electronically. Consider us your resource for finding continued education and support as you need it.
Although CUPPING has been a therapeutic modality for ages it has been given much attention during recent sporting events. Lisa uses vacuum therapy as part of her practice and was certified by ACE Medi-Cupping. There are a variety of cups; glass or silicone, stiff or flexible, with or without magnets. The effects of cupping are many, and change as the cups are "parked" (left in place) or are moved. We use cupping to help with pain, inflammation, and blood flow, with the majority of our clients using it to help with deep muscular relaxation, myofascial release, scar tissue reduction, and improved mobility in their movement patterns.
TRAINING tools are dependent on needs and goals. We try to meet you in your own environment, evaluate your normal movement patterns, and establish strengths and weaknesses. We will work with what you have and push you out of your comfort zone as appropriate. LIFT is multi-faceted and multi-dimensional...just like you.
Sessions are scheduled with Lisa by special arrangement on your own turf.
Lisa's Training fee is $100/hr. Package rates are available.
Lisa is available for private and small group sessions of MEDITATION. We will help you decide what practices and formats might be most beneficial to you. We can offer you guided meditation, pranayama/breathing, mantra based, spiritual, sound healing, or mindfulness trainings. Please speak to Lisa the next time you see her in class, or call for guidance.
As another complementary modality, LIsa enlists the science and tradition of "sound" by way of conventional singing bowls, tuning forks, and vocal toning. These tools are often added to traditional bodywork to enhance the experience. These are the same tools Lisa employs in her Breathwork workshops and classes as breath, sound, and movement are combined for an exhanced experience.
Lisa is available for private and small group sessions of
BREATHWORK and PRANAYAMA.
Lisa was trained and certified under the guidance and lineage of David Elliot, clairaudient healer in Los Angeles. She has integrated this beautiful and relatively quick acting style of breathing with traditional yogic pranayama. Lisa uses advanced practices of deep breathing, her sound healing tools, energy work, and good old fashion intuition to help guide participants safely into an "non-normal" state of consciousness. Whether one comes to enjoy this "altered state" or to take advantage of the insights and healing available, it proves to be life changing.
REIKI is an ancient Japanese technique in which a trained practitioner uses "life force energy" through their hands to balance the chakras and align one's energy with health. Reiki has brought relief to people with multitudes of health challenges and conditions. Considered a complementary practice, Reiki addresses the physical, energetic, spiritual, and emotional wellness of the participant.
Lisa utilizes Reiki as part of her bodywork sessions. Please let her know if you would like her to use this energetic modality as part of your healing session.
