with Lisa Vaughan-Meer
I use a holistic approach to working with clients. I believe that what happens on the massage table can only make a small difference. Healthful living requires your commitment to understanding your own body inside and out. In our session together, you can either relax or we can discuss ways that I can help you off the massage table as well (corrective exercise programs, yoga, at-home movement, and more).
About my education
After I graduated from Old Dominion University in 1995 with a BS in Psychology and a BS in Human Services Counseling, I began exercising my curiosity for the body-mind connection while working in the mental health field. A year later, inspired by a close friend, I began study at The Fuller School of Massage Therapy. I then became a National Certified Massage Therapist in 1997 and began work in private practice in Norfolk, Virginia. In addition to being a Nationally Certified Massage Therapist, I am also a Certified Neuromuscular Massage Therapist and a certification in Functional Movement Systems.
My work has been especially influenced by my passion for fitness and my belief in the importance of functional movement. My studies also include John Barnes’s Myofascial Release Technique, The Structural Integration Method, and an extraordinary six day human dissection experience with the Somanautics team of Todd Garcia and Gil Hedley.
