Lisa Matthews BCST, RCST, RN
Registered Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapist
Flower Essence Practitioner
Lisa has always been fascinated by the intricacies of the human body. As a Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapist, she helps people connect with their health on a deeper level. She first trained as a Registered Nurse in Australia and worked in various areas across the hospital as well as in Clinical Research. She later pursued post graduate training in Emergency Medicine to work with people at their most challenging and vulnerable times.
Over the years, it became clear that deeper healing was often not possible in hospital as the Allopathic Medical model is just not equipped to deal with the nuances of a person and their unique life experiences. Lisa decided to add to her knowledge by training to become an Osteopathic Manual Practitioner, where she learned the bio-mechanical model of craniosacral therapy, as well as a more holistic way of viewing the body.
However, nearly two years into her education, her own health journey began quite unexpectedly and she had to pause all activities in her life. She went inwards to explore the roots of her inexplicable chronic pain and the strange symptoms that had emerged. After trying out a variety of different therapies, the philosophy and touch of Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (BCST) greatly impressed her and she decided to pursue learning in this way of healing, as it so strongly acknowledges the innate health within each person.

Her core practice is in working with those that are empathic, intuitive, and energetically sensitive people. As she herself had to go through the difficult journey of learning to navigate our busy and often chaotic world while integrating a Spiritual Emergency, she is well-versed in how to support other energetically sensitive souls on their own transformational healing path. You can read more about Lisa’s spiritual journey right here.
Lisa weaves a number of medicines together including Spirit Work and Shamanic Practices, Flower Essences, and Crystal Medicine. She holds workshops and healing circles to teach others easy to learn, practical approaches to heal the physical body along with energetic practices to clear, ground, and heal the energy body.
On her days off, you can find Lisa in nature on a mountain bike or a pair of skis, unless she’s curled up on the couch reading a good book. Lisa brings a unique perspective to Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy by combining her knowledge from nursing, her personal experiences with a Spiritually Transformative Experience and chronic pain, along with her dynamic training in alternative healing.
