Annette Cochrane recommends Deep t. Issue Therapy & Reiki-Lisa Townsend, LMT, MH

“Lisa is so amazing. Her knowledge surpasses any massage therapist I have been to. I am feeling better after one treatment. I would highly recommend her.”

Welcome to my office! This is one of the best places you can be in Grand Rapids for natural pain relief and my treatments are super effective. I use the movement of the blood in the deep tissue (muscle, ligament, tendon, and nerve) to help release your pain and I only use my hands and Reiki.

I have 2400 hours of Advanced Naprapathic Manual Therapy training, twenty years of experience as a bodyworker, Reiki Master, Master Herbalist, and a MI State License. Your time and money are very well spent here and with your cooperation and my skill, your pain will decrease without drugs or surgery. Your bones follow your muscles so releasing the deep muscle adhesions that cause pain are the first-line treatment for your body because the soft tissue stress leads to a host of other trouble.

Medical massage is the beginning level of manual therapy training. Most medical massage therapists in Grand Rapids have been trained at Blue Heron Academy of Arts and Sciences which is Naprapathic based education and have one year of training. I have three and a half years. I also offer sports massage therapy for athletes.  Just let me know the specific issue and I’ll focus on that during treatment. In addition, my work perfectly compliments your treatments with a Physical Therapist or a Chiropractic. Use both of us together. We all work differently. There is no adjusting in this office but I work at the connective tissue right near the joint and I move the whole joint complex.




GVSU (Grand Valley State University) students near me, just come north on Walker St. and I can help you out with stress and pain! I was a student once and next to giving birth, it’s the most stressful memory of my life. Your brain gets fried and it’s a tremendous amount of pressure!

    Good morning, I am a cluster headache sufferer in desperate need of relief, I have been searching several different treatment options and I can across your website which intrigued me, is this something you would be willing to try to help me with? I would love to set up an appointment with you today if so.

    • Absolutely. I do deep tissue therapy and Reiki. I will check your neck and shoulders first and then work on the head with acupressure and Reiki. Just call 616-328-4242 at about 9am. We’ll set up a time.
