I am a lavender lover and I love sharing this powerful herbal! I grow lavender in my garden and use my own dried lavender in the Spa and at home. For my hand, foot and body care treatments, I use Tuscan Farm Gardens organic and natural lavender products like their phenomenal Lavender Body Polish, and Lavender and Neroli Body Oil.

Why I Love Lavender

The soothing aroma of lavender activates deep relaxation and mental calmness. Lavender is an excellent tonic for anxiety and stress. Keep a dried lavender sachet by your pillow or spray diluted lavender essential oil on your pillow to ensure a peaceful sleep. Lavender essential oil has natural anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties, which are beneficial for your skin, and diffusing year-round. Dried lavender can be brewed into a comforting and soothing tea. Outside, plant lavender in pots on your deck or patio to repel mosquitoes. You can also apply diluted lavender essential oil on your skin for a natural insect repellent and mood booster.

Lavender calms the mind, eases stress and tension, and when used topically, is a natural antiseptic and anti-fungal. And, because it aids in the formation of scar tissue and the reduction of inflammation, it works quickly to heal wounds, cuts, burns and sunburns.

Integrate lavender into your daily life for stellar self-care!  Tuscan Farm Gardens Lavender Bath and Body products are available at my Spa. They make wonderful gifts for Mother’s Day too!

Based on an ancient Tibetan healing modality, Raindrop Therapy stimulates your lymphatic and immune systems, as well as activates your body’s natural cleansing pathways to balance and assist the body to heal itself.

We begin with the application of pure organic essential oils on your feet and along your spine, then move to the Vita Flex technique of gentle pressure point massage. This combination stimulates every organ, muscle and bone on a cellular level to create balance and release toxins on all levels.

Many of my clients who have experienced Raindrop Therapy tell me that the effects of the treatment stay with them for much longer than a massage and it can even be an emotional experience. Raindrop Therapy is a powerful tool to release unwanted energy and restore balance to your system.

I am showcasing Japanese Mint Oil this summer for a cooling and refreshing spa experience!

Japanese Mint is a source of menthol, which is a potent compound that acts as a disinfectant and decongestant. It has a refreshing and invigorating effect that many people find uplifting.

When used topically, Japanese Mint Oil has a stimulating effect that can improve circulation, relieve pain, help sprains, reduce muscle inflammation, and even ease cramps. It is known for being particularly great for the back because it soothes tension and reduces inflammation.

For July and August, I am excited to be featuring Japanese Mint Oil in my Refreshing Back Massage, and my Foot Treatments. You can even purchase it at my Boutique!

I highly recommend trying the Indian Head Massage after a stressful day or week. I arrived after a stressful day my mind was full of busyness and I felt exhausted, after my Indian Head massage treatment I felt relaxed and revitalized, my mind also felt calm, clear and peaceful, it was like my stress just melted away, I will definitely be back for this treatment.

After many treatments and time with Lisa over the past 25 years, I have come to appreciate her spirit, her warmth, and to trust her and her spa as a safe and inspiring center. Recently Lisa helped me see that a facial was nourishment for the skin and also a relaxing massage treatment for healthy radiant glowing skin.

Margaret Litch

I have been a client of Lisa’s since I was 12 years old. I feel very comfortable at her spa and trust her with my skincare spa services. Being a University student and on a budget I tend to use drug store products on my skin. I decided to invest in Goddess Bliss skincare; it’s been 3 months now. I have noticed many changes and benefits such as my skin feels more balanced, healthy, my dryness has diminished, my skin’s tone is more even I wear less make-up because my skin feels radiant. I now see the value of investing in quality skin care; I am committed to my new regime and love it.  Thank you Lisa for your expertise and creating such an awesome skincare line!

Katie Davidson

Coming to Lisa for the past 8 years is an important part of my self-care, I look forward to seeing Lisa monthly as her waxing is the most gentle I have experienced. This is more than getting a service it’s become a friendship, someone I trust to share on a personal level.  Her passion for personal growth has also inspired me to be part of her Sacred Circles for women.  I’ve enjoyed this aspect of self-discovery and taking it to a deeper level in a safe setting with other likeminded women. I love taking time to awaken and acknowledge my inner Goddess strengths.

Hannah Ruller

Being in my 50’s I noticed my skin starting to sag so it was now or never to get on this. I contacted Lisa ready to take better care of my skin and also make time for just me to receive some nurturing. Within a week after having my facial treatment and using Goddess Bliss skincare, I noticed big changes. It has been almost a year now, my skin lines have softened my tonicity has improved, my skin feels radiant and alive. Regular monthly massage and facial treatments are a big part of my self-care now, I feel fantastic, I am worth it!  Thank you Lisa!

Shari Molchan

I love Lisa's monthly circle so much that it has become an essential part of my life - it is a ritual of sensual experience that encompasses aroma, words, song, meditation, movement, and self-expression. Lisa creates an atmosphere of magical beauty and peace that permeates her home; walking into her space is like stepping into a different dimension that we long for in our everyday lives. The sharing and connectedness amongst the group grows deeper with each circle and I leave feeling renewed and refreshed with a sense of joy and peace that filters into all aspects of my being. It grounds me back to my self and the core of goddess magic that resides within all of us but is forgotten in the daily stresses of living. I'm so grateful that I have this unique and beautiful experience to look forward to every month!
