Introducing the former catwalk model who now transforms the lives of others using the healing power of reiki – an ancient therapy benefitting millions worldwide, including A-list celebrities.
We meet Lisa at her elegant practice in the heart of Wilmslow. She’s serene, grounded and greets you with the warmest smile. Here, she opens up about her personal journey into reiki and reveals the therapy’s potentially life-changing benefits.
From high fashion to healing
Reiki Master Lisa has lived the kind of life you see on the big screen. As a professional model, she spent years gracing the catwalks of Paris and Milan and later, was approached by Mattel to become the famous toy manufacturer’s official ‘real-life’ Barbie. As a much adored ‘living doll’, her world was a blaze of TV and media appearances and work for children’s charities.
However, following an extremely difficult divorce, mother-of-two Lisa’s life abruptly changed:
“I began drinking too much as a way of coping,” she admits. “When I decided to stop – I’ve been sober for 12 years now – it took me down a spiritual path and that’s where I discovered the power of reiki and was immediately drawn to it.”
A total reset for body and mind
“Reiki is energy healing,” explains Lisa. “Every living thing has a life-force energy flowing through it and sometimes this energy becomes misaligned. There are seven different energy points – known as ‘chakras’ – running from the top of your head to the base of your spine. Reiki involves a light touch of the palm to these points to deliver healing energy.”
The therapy has not only attracted a long list of famous fans (Gwyneth Paltrow, Cameron Diaz, Angelina Jolie, Nicole Kidman, and Meghan Markle are all reported to be followers), but it’s now used in hospitals and hospices worldwide to complement traditional health interventions.

A passion for helping others
“The list of conditions that reiki can help address is incredibly wide-ranging,” says Lisa, “and it’s particularly good for anxiety and stress, which so many of us have encountered since the pandemic hit and our lives were thrown out of kilter. It’s also incredibly relaxing, many clients do actually fall asleep!”
As well as treating private clients at her Wilmslow practice, Lisa is also Reiki Master at the Delamere, the UK’s first purpose-built addiction treatment clinic, in Northwich.
“Helping addicts is something extremely close to my heart,” explains Lisa. “I’m incredibly proud of my work at Delamere. For me, using reiki to support a person’s journey into recovery is priceless.”
“WOW… felt totally amazing and relaxed for days after. Just the ticket to release the stresses and emotional anxieties that were manifesting in physical aches and pains.”
“I was a reiki sceptic until I met with Lisa. I have a busy life and my reiki sessions have certainly helped me focus more and de-stress.”

“After my first session, I was blown away by the dramatic change in me. I’m now more positive about life and more confident. I’ve also managed to achieve a dramatic weight loss! Lisa is amazing!”
