one to one sessions
It's an honor to work one to one with someone. The attention and customization is second to none. With more than a decade of professional practice and continued education, Lisa Ralston, comes to each session with curiosity, gratitude, and enthusiasm. Every session is unique. I've always been more of a mixed media artist. I'd say the expression, "the way you do anything, is the way you do everything," holds true here. I'm trained in a number of modalities and any of them can present as priority in a session.
Consciousness based medicine is so cool. Bodytalk is a priority based healthcare system that aims to restore communication and connection to the body mind. Trusting the genius of the innate intelligence to heal and restore, BodyTalk brings formulas and stories to our conscious awareness to initiate change. Bodytalk sessions are easy. All you have to do is relax. BodyTalk can be done in the office or at a distance. Distance sessions are done first with consultation and then a recording of the session. Bodytalk continues to astound me and my clients report to have good results.
I'm so grateful to have studied Massage Therapy in New York State. I had incredible teachers. These days it is hard to separate all the modalities I have learned over the years. Whether you are interested in deep tissue, craniosacral, reflexology, sports, Swedish, lymphatic drainage, or recovery I probably have something that may help you.
Shiatsu translates to 'finger pressure.' Shiatsu originates from Japan. Shiatsu sessions are done on a floor mat wearing loose fitting comfortable clothing. Shiatsu can be a very gentle and passive therapy which balances the energy lines, improves joint mobilization, and allows for the time and space for the body mind to release and reset in a safe environment.
Yoga & Meditation Lessons
Have you ever wanted a routine that will go with you everywhere for the rest of your life that will help you to maintain balance, clarity, and integrity? Private Yoga and/or Meditation Lessons may be for you. It's like having a personal trainer in the gym. But instead of building muscle, our focus is inward building resilience, devotion, and integrity, unwinding and releasing stress and trauma, and learning from within through stillness and silence. Breath practices, focusing tools, and right alignment will help you develop a strong practice for life.
Do you want to meditate, but can't sit still? Guided Relaxation helps to calm the mind chatter, direct your focus, and keep you accountable to yourself. When we take moments to pause we are more likely to use our energy wisely.

I went to Thailand and learned Traditional Thai Massage in Chang Mai, Thailand. Eastern cultures have opened my Western eyes. I learned techniques that aren't taught in New York, USA where I was training in massage therapy. Thai Massage is done on a floor mat. The client remains comfortably clothed. Passive stretches, compression, and meridian walking as well as other techniques are used to restore balance and harmony and initiate healing.

What Our Clients Say
Lisa has the magic, she is both gentle and strong, during the session I had a vision that I hadn’t thought of before, it gave me clarity about what I need to do. My breathing is better, the tension is no longer there, and I can see better, my throat had congestion and blockage, it is better also. I can still feel her hands on me. When she put her fingers by my eyes, it was electric, like magnets, like everything balanced .
