Registered acupuncturist and shiatsu practitioner. Lisa has been trained in Thai Massage, Pilates and Movement Therapy, Massage Therapy, Osteopathic Manual Therapy, and Reflexology.
Lisa Dowling entered the world of healing and bodywork through her own journey that began at the age of seven, when a freak accident left her with long term health issues and chronic pain. She found shiatsu therapy through her chiropractor who suggested it to help manage her pain. Five years later Lisa found herself on a treatment mat in Thailand, and knew that she had found her calling.
From that day in 1997 it has been a constant learning and growing process. Lisas’ studies in thai massage, shiatsu, movement therapy, western sciences – anatomy and physiology, osteopathic techniques, acupuncture – specifically Japanese acupuncture and moxibustion, and cupping were fueled by her own desire to learn to manage chronic pain.
Lisa has been formally teaching at the Shiatsu School of Canada since 2008, and teaching cupping since 2009. Before that, courses and workshops were ongoing. Since 2015, Lisa has formed the Meridian Care Center where she provides courses in Eastern Medicine, Meridian Therapy, Acupressure, Moxibustion, and Cupping.
