I worked in the insurance industry for 30 years.  With the economy in turmoil my job was downsized.  I loved being in customer service, helping people with their unique situations, concerns and issues.  Massage lets me still do the same thing, but now it's truly hands on! 

In the past several years I have been focusing on improving my skills by attending several John F Barnes seminars for Myofascial Release (MFR).  They have been extremely informative and have enhanced my massage skills greatly.  

I have become a passionate advocate for this type of bodywork as it is a gentle and non-invasive bodywork that helps to alleviate diverse pains such as back pain, migraines, TMJ, arthritis, plantar fasciitis, hip pains, shoulder pain, neck pain and knee pain. 

have many clients who are runners, from marathon, half marathon and 5 K's. All of them appreciate the time on the table to help keep their running form in top shape and help prevent injuries. Body builders also appreciate the work as it loosens tight muscles, allowing for ease in their workouts and competitions. 

To allow more people to experience MFR I have kept the cost of a session very reasonable, compared to what other locations are charging for it in the local area.

Chair Massage

Recently chair massage has become extremely popular, creating a greater demand for qualified, professional licensed massage therapists. I perform chair massage at a corporation in Ivyland, PA, every Tuesday. Recently I did four hours of hand massage at Johnson Controls in Lansdale and chair massage at a Health Fair for Haines and Kibblehouse, as well as for Caring Hospice.

Myofascial Release

I have attended 8 John F Barnes Myofascial Release seminars in the past few years. Each seminar is an intense 3 day class that combines theory with hands on learning experience. Each time I take a class I come away with a new perspective on how to help people with their acute or chronic pain.

Clinic Supervisor

Supervisor for clinic of National Academy of Massage Therapy and Healing Sciences, which was then purchased by Lansdale School of Business. Worked there for over three years running the clinic on a day to day basis.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Gary on Feb 14
Felt a little sore that evening, but the next morning I felt less pain in my heel. And after my morning exercises, I could sense something was different, in a positive way. Having just taken a walk, I'm feeling pretty good!
by Evan on Feb 13
Lisa really took the time to listen to what was causing me pain and focus on relieving that pain. My knees felt great walking up and down stairs almost immediately after!

Lisa worked on my shoulder, arms and back and I left feeling great. My shoulder was really getting to be problematic but after Lisa worked on me it has felt good for days.

Being a client of Alchemy Massage and Bodyworks for over four years, I have always had an outstanding experience. I am grateful for the flexible schedule and exemplary knowledge provided by Lisa. Not only has she helped me loosen my muscles, she provides a wide range of services that serve my bodies needs. From having Myofascial Release due to surgeries and foot problems, to a hot stone with aromatherapy for stress release it has always been an amazing experience.
