A totally non-invasive and drug free approach to PAIN & STRESS. You can expect not only pain relief, but quicker recovery and healing times
My name is Lisa and I am the owner/therapist of Sprague Pain Therapy. I have been a licensed practitioner in the Health Care profession for over 30 years, holding dual licenses in both the Massage Therapy and Physical Therapy professions along with multiple certifications and advanced trainings.
My extensive experience, skill and training as a Physical Therapist Assistant, Exercise Physiologist, and Massage Therapist have allowed me to become a unique therapist pulling from all those disciplines to benefit my clients. I have taught at the college level in Physical Therapy and continue to assist, instruct and mentor other professionals for Cranial Release Technique®, Inc and ENSr Medical, Inc. I have joined ENSr Medical Inc as their Education Director of Florida and Massachusetts for which I am responsible for educating health professionals on non-invasive neuromodulation technologies for the treatment and management of pain and sales of those devices.
The first part of my career I worked primarily in outpatient Physical Therapy environments, developed and managed Industrial Rehab programs but craved more. My passion had always been manual therapy and I wanted to focus more on those skills and build upon them. I also wanted the freedom to spend more treatment time with my clients so I returned to school in order to become licensed to practice as a LMT (Licensed Massage Therapist). That choice resulted in the best combination of skills and education from 3 major complementary disciplines. I then began my move into private practice in 1998.
I am a perpetual student always taking continuing education classes way beyond whats required for my licenses and certifications. My "go to books" to read for leisure are those connected to my profession. I have always been searching for the skills and techniques that would provide the most significant impact on my clients ability to heal. Through my studies I became extremely interested in those techniques that directly effected the nervous system and I pursued them.
That pursuit in advanced training leaned heavily towards skills and techniques that influenced and optimized our innate healing mechanism so to effect the body as a whole. That search eventually led me to cranial based therapies, specifically the Cranial Release Technique (CRT®). CRT® significantly changed my therapeutic approach and the amazing way I was able to help my clients. Huge "THANK YOU" to Dr William Doreste, CEO of Cranial Release Technique, Inc and my mentor, "THANK YOU" for sharing and teaching me your gift.
It's interesting how life can lead you to what your looking for in a way you would not expect nor even hope for. For me that was an auto accident. That’s exactly what led me to being treated with SCENAR non-invasive neuromodulation technology and eventually adding that exceptional pain therapy to my practice. If it wasn't for the SCENAR treatments I received from Dr Teresa Sievers I might not be still working in my profession today. Since then I have added the newest non invasive modulation technology, FIRSTtx to my practice and an incredible whole body therapy called BEMER, that delivers a very wide range of health benefits. BEMER is the most health enhancing technology I have yet to come across. I utilize this for treatment but I must say this is something that should be in everyones home for both its health and longitivtiy benefits. I have one and it has changed the level of my health significantly.
Throughout my career I have been fortunate to be trained by some of the industry’s leading educators. My choice of continuing education classes is a never ending journey to learn new skills/techniques/therapies and gain as much knowledge as I can in order to assist my clients with pain relief and resolution in their return to optimal functioning.
