Lisa and dog Lisa Shelton LMT began her career in Staunton, VA in 1996.

She had been a graduate student at the Medical College of Virginia coming to Staunton for a short eight-week affiliation and never left. Since that time, Lisa has had the opportunity to work along side a number of gifted clinicians in a wide range of settings in Charlottesville,  Staunton, Waynesboro and Harrisonburg. Over the course of her career, Lisa has had the opportunity to gain greater insight into the way the human body heals itself through interactions with her clients. While she has always had a strong belief in the power of movement to heal the body, there seemed to be a missing piece for many of those she served.

She was introduced to the concept of myofasical release and craniosacral therapy by John Barnes, PT.

Since that meeting, she has found that this manual technique has produced profound results within the clinical setting. Her desire to understand the soft tissue system further prompted Lisa to attend the Shenandoah Valley School of Therapeutic Massage. There, she was exposed to a variety of soft tissue techniques and alternative therapies. As a result, Lisa’s treatment approach became more holistic, viewing the human body from a wider lens.

To better serve the needs of her clients, Lisa opened a manual therapy practice specializing in myofascial release and craniosacral therapy serving Staunton, Harrisonburg, Waynesboro, and Charlottesville areas.

She serves clients looking for relief from pain and/or dysfunction in addition to those who want to optimize their health and performance.

When she’s not in the clinic, Lisa enjoys spending time with her husband, Ryan, and sons, Jake and Joe. She is steadily falling in love with the small town of Staunton, leaving behind her ties to the beltway. Her home life would not be complete without her sidekicks Will, the yellow lab, and Grace, the yorkie. Between the two of them, they succeed in making Lisa laugh every day, even before she’s had her coffee.
