“People get better here. Care is as individual and unique as each person that comes through our door.”
With a background as diverse as her interests, Lisa Peters has been a licensed massage therapist for 10 years. Before that, she worked as a graphic artist, wait staff, bartender, audience services and web site coordinator for public broadcasting radio and television, travel agent, and involved with travel data and coding.
Lisa believes it is best to include massage and chiropractic for regular maintenance and self-care. The most fulfilling part of her job is seeing people get better and seeing people’s smiles return as their bodies feel better.
“Time and again, I hear patients tell us they tried other paths to health without success. Yet, within a couple of weeks at our clinic, they’re amazed at their relief.”
In her free time, Lisa says her life is devoted to her child. They’re always on the go seeking new experiences like art, museums, zoos, beaches, festivals, and more!
