Lisa Owens
Owner, RMT, CNP

Lisa has a great passion for helping others achieve their health goals. Her passion began and grew from her studies at the Institute of Holistic Nutrition. Not truly knowing the depths of what these studies entailed, she began anew and never looked back.

Lisa focuses on true healing. Nutrition is not a miracle pill, and healing doesn’t happen overnight. True healing requires being an active participant in your healing journey by putting in the effort and commitment needed to heal. She finds that nutrition should be the first line of defense on getting your health back on track while also integrating a mind and body approach through meditation and exercise.

Lisa then attended the Canadian College of Massage and Hydrotherapy with successful completion of their Massage Therapy program. She specializes in deep tissue techniques, myofascial release, trigger point treatments, as well as stretching and corrective exercise. Over the course of her time as an RMT, she has also included Cupping Therapy and Acupuncture into her practice with much success.

Lisa has been active in the fitness industry for over 20 years, familiarizing herself with many different approaches to strength and conditioning such as TRX training, Crossfit, Weight lifting, HIIT training and Corrective Exercise.
