You know that Lisa’s in the office when you hear her laughter rolling down the hallway. (Don’t tell her, but she’s up for Best Laugh at our staff’s annual awards night.) Besides her great laugh, she’s got great moves (which she can show off in her fabulous shoes) having spent years in dance classes. Understanding muscles in motion, she’s ready to pinpoint your problem spots and then work to make sure you leave the clinic with a smile on your face.
Lisa graduated from the University of Alberta in 2003 with a Bachelor of Science in Physical Therapy with distinction. Since graduation, Lisa has worked in private practice in Calgary and St. Albert where she mentored with accomplished manual therapists and IMS practitioners. Pursuing training in many postgraduate courses, Lisa has also gained comprehensive training in orthopedic manual and manipulative physiotherapy and a certificate in Gunn IMS. She is also certified with the Acupuncture Foundation of Canada Institute. Most recently, Lisa has completed Level 1,2 and 3 of the Visceral Manipulation series through the Barral Institute and has completed The Connect Therapy Series with Dr. LJ Lee. She has also completed the Connect Therapy Level 4 update with Dr. LJ Lee and the Integrated Systems Model update with Diane Lee. Some special interest courses that Lisa has recently completed include: Lisa Howell’s Perfect Form Physiotherapy Level 1 Dance Teacher and Practitioner Training, Shelley Prosko’s Physioyoga Retreat and a Concussion course through U of C and Laval Universite Laval.
Lisa continues to be fascinated by the complexity of the body and how it compensates when a person is experiencing pain. Committed to giving all of her patients a large amount of one-on-one time, she wants to get to know her patients and identify the source of their pain and dysfunction. With her extensive background in most forms of dance and five years as a hockey trainer, she has a special knowledge of how to treat athletic injuries.
Lisa enjoys yoga, skiing, bike riding, and – no surprise here – laughing and delighting in conversations. She also loves fresh air, especially when she’s out and about with her three young children. They keep her on the run, but when she has a spare moment, Lisa enjoys time with her husband, good food and good friends!
Lisa is honoured to be a part of Revive Whole Body Health and loves working and learning with a great team!
