Private sessions with Lisa are holistic and intuitive in nature and are personalized to include the body-mind-spirit connection in conjunction with the cosmic energies, ancestors, santos, angels, and guides. Her therapies and modalities utilize a variety of traditional techniques such as platica (heart to heart conversation), body work, sacred plants, aromatherapy, dream analysis and use of obsidian to encourage and engage the body’s innate healing response. Her practice also includes limpias (spiritual cleansings) and end of life transitions.
