Lisa Roese: Integrative Mind, Body Therapist
NEW! You can now claim benefits from Discovery Health for Therapeutic Massage Therapy treatments.
As a Counsellor, Coach, Massage Therapist and Yoga Teacher my skills span the whole spectrum of physical, mental and emotional health. I use a multi-modality approach to support my clients in attaining wellness on every level.
Through years of experience and specialized training in Anatomy, Physiology, Yoga, Therapeutic Massage and various forms of Somatic Therapy I’ve developed my own style of body work. During treatments I aim to alleviate pain and tension by improving musculoskeletal, circulatory and neurological functioning. I vary my pressure and techniques according to individual requirements and either focus on specific conditions, areas of tension or the body as a whole.
I am one of only 100 Therapeutic Massage Therapists registered with The Allied Health Professions Council of South Africa https://ahpcsa.co.za/. Our training is rigorous and of a high standard,it comprises a two-year diploma course which includes subjects of anatomy, physiology, chemistry, pathology, pathophysiology, theory of therapeutic massage, therapeutic massage practical as well as the additional subjects of business skills, nutrition, counselling and jurisprudence: http://mtasa.co.za/
I am passionate about helping people transform difficulties into opportunities for growth, to this end I’ve studied Psychology, Counselling and more recently, Coaching. I’ve volunteered as a Counsellor & Group Facilitator for the last 10 years and I now Counsel individuals and Coach office staff in a private capacity. I use a combination of Counselling and Coaching to support people in dealing with challenges from all possible angles: Counselling addresses blocks by exploring deeper emotional issues and past experiences that may be holding you back while Coaching focuses on personal or career goals and designing steps that lead to a brighter future.
