More about Lise
“Lise has been invaluable to my health and well being the last 3 years. I first was referred to her with severe pain and a grim diagnosis from a medical doctor. Lise has restored me to beyond the doctor's expectations for my knee injury, and I continue to see more positive results as time goes on. Lise has a holistic approach that just makes sense. She has helped with sleep, stress, illness, and emotional issues. My children have seen very positive results also. I wholeheartedly recommend Lise to anyone with any life issues that may be a concern. Lise can give positive changes immediately for a fraction of the cost of seeing a "traditional" doctor.”
