Lisa McFarland, a Certified Somatic Therapist, began her private practice in 1988 after receiving her initial CranioSacral training from Dr. John Upledger, the originator of CranioSacral Therapy in 1986. For eight years Lisa worked with Dr. John Baldwin, a specialist in head and neck pain and TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome), where she was introduced to Dr. Barry Gillespie and osteopath Dr. Michael Samuels, and exposed to their amazing work. Lisa developed her unique bodywork style combining her intuitive skills with various bodywork techniques.
She has completed advanced CranioSacral training, Pediatric CranioSacral Therapy, Somatic Emotional Release training from the Upledger Institute, advanced N.S.T. (Neuro-Structural Technique) and advanced Bowen therapy. She is an active student member of the OrthoBionomy Society, the IAHP International Association of Health Care Practitioners and continues to train in new and innovative osteopathic modalities.
Lisa has been in private practice since 1988, and in September 2004 Lisa graduated from the four-year Medical Intuitive certificate program presented by Holos Institutes of Health and The Institute for Scientific Medical Intuition, taught by Drs. Caroline Myss and C. Norman Shealy.
Committed to the health and wellness community, Lisa officed above the Healing Space, with Dr. Monica Roberson, Houston’s first Fellow of Dr. Andrew Weil’s Integrative Medicine program. Loving this experience with Dr. Roberson has inspired Lisa to begin writing a book and has ignited a desire to teach.
Lisa pursues her passion for healing, and is currently excited about the nutritional support that diet allows for health and preventive care. She has been invested in Naturopathy studies with Clayton College of Natural Health, (now Holos Institute) and studies the Food-Healing system of Jeff Primack. Lisa remains committed to the integration of health and wellness, and the relationship between the mind-body connection. She combines intuitive skills with various bodywork techniques, working with each client to clear stored body memory, enhance wellness and empower the individual healing experience.
