According to Lisa, her wellness center offers preventative and restorative lifelong health solutions to the ‘whole client’ using the team approach.
Described natural methods are chemically free and allow a client to assume responsibility for his or her own health.
Programs are developed for each client according to the client’s needs and desires. A few of the many modalities offered are:
“I am a licensed massage therapist and Usui Reiki Master and a 2009 graduate of the Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork program offered through the Atlantic Technical Center of Broward College in Margate.
Having worked as a massage therapist in the chiropractor, physical therapist and spa environments, I understand the need for an individual approach. So we mix and match as we work on a client. When we encounter tension and trigger points, we adjust our techniques to meet the need. We might use four different massages in one treatment.
CranioSacral Therapy (CST)
A printed brochure describes CST as a light touch therapy that can create dramatic improvements in one’s life. It releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction. The end result is an improved whole-body health and performance. This therapy claims to help a full spectrum of pain, illness and dysfunction including migraines, neck and back pain, motor coordination impairments, infant and childhood disorders, brain and spinal cord injuries, chronic fatigue, Fibromyalgia, TMJ syndrome, scoliosis, central nervous system, learning disabilities, post traumatic disorders, orthopedic problems and more.
Trained at the Upledger Institute in Palm Beach Gardens, Lisa says, “We use a gentle touch starting with about the weight of a nickel, a practitioner evaluates the client’s internal environment, and using light touch techniques releases any restrictions she finds. It’s effective for all ages from newborns to elders and clients say one treatment leaves them feeling energetic and life changing. Some people are helped with one session. Others do regular follow ups until relief is experienced.”
This therapy is said to have benefited mentally and physically challenged children. Newborns, treated shortly after birth get a lifetime benefit as the tiny body is gently aligned for optimum growth
A very mild massage promotes lymphatic flow and proper body function. Ideal for pre and post surgery, this massage is frequently requested by people getting cosmetic surgeries and mastectomies.
Lisa describes Reflexology as a massage of the feet or hands that opens up the energy channels to the body. Reiki is a system of enlightenment and the hands on healing is passed from master to student. Aura readings claim to help areas of personal and spiritual growth.
Lisa concludes with “We are not medical doctors. We are practicing and using proven healing techniques to help clients feel better for long term health. A plan is developed to bring a client to his or her optimal health.”

Here’s what a few clients have to say
Alice Smith, Fort Lauderdale, says, “We were lucky enough to find Lisa. She’s amazing at finding just the right therapeutic massage technique to bring relief to aching muscles—especially if you have medical issues. My husband and I couldn’t be happier.”
Lorraine S. ,Pompano Beach, says, “I spent the winter in Pompano Beach and was fortunate to find Lisa Smith who came to my apartment weekly. I was so impressed by how much she was helping me, that I booked appointments for my husband who was equally pleased. Lisa does whatever it takes to help the body heal and make you feel better. I highly recommend Lisa to those who understands the importance of therapeutic massage for wellness, as well as for specific problems.”
Jenny Spencer says, “ Lisa explains what she’s doing and why. She went that extra mile to pay attention to my special needs as a stroke survivor. She did what no other massage therapist has done for me in the past three years—relaxed my spastic arm so that it lay straight out to the side. She also found a knot just below my knee that allowed my foot, which turned inward to become straight. She’s better than the best.”
