Treatments

I use a variety of techniques to help women reconnect with their bodies, to learn to accept and even love them in order to lead a full life.

Lisa HIggins MLD

Hi, I’m Lisa

I’m a Remedial Massage Therapist who offers the Vodder technique of Manual Lymphatic Drainage, Craniosacral Therapy and Medical Intuition.

 

I’ve been practicing since 2006 in both Sydney and Dubai.

Treatments can be either in person in the clinic on the Northern Beaches of Sydney, or online.

About Manual Lymphatic Drainage:

 

Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is a very gentle manual technique which helps restore the body’s balance by effectively clearing toxins from the body, as well as helping to reduce fluid retention from a variety of causes ranging from PMT, oedema, lymphoedema, sinusitis, pre and post-surgery or injury. It is particularly effective in reducing lymphoedema post-cancer.

Regular treatment can help to boost the immune system. MLD is tolerated well by patients who may find other forms of massage too painful. It is a slow, rhythmical treatment which makes it relaxing and therapeutic at the same time

Benefits of MLD:
* Reduction in the size of limbs affected by lymphoedema
* Stimulation of the immune system
* Reduction in symptoms of sinusitis
* Reduction in fluid retention
* Assists in regulating hormonal imbalances in women
* Reduction in swelling and bruising post-surgery
* Reduction in pain

MLD is given to a partially undressed client and careful draping is always applied. 

 

Sessions last one hour and cost $125

About CranioSacral therapy

 

CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on treatment that releases long-held tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance. Using a soft touch practitioners release restrictions in the soft tissue that surrounds the central nervous system.

CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and it’s effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction.

What conditions does CranioSacral Therapy address?

* Migraines and Headaches
* Chronic Neck and Back Pain
* Stress and Tension-Related Disorders
* Motor-Coordination Impairments
* Infant and Childhood Disorders
* Brain and Spinal Cord Injuries
* Chronic Fatigue
* Fibromyalgia
* TMJ Syndrome
* Scoliosis
* Central Nervous System Disorders
* Learning Disabilities
* ADD/ADHD
* Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
* Orthopedic Problems
* And Many Other Conditions

CST is administered to a fully clothed client.

The technique is a complementary therapy and works in conjunction with all therapies, or can be applied on its own.

Sessions last one hour and cost $125
