Thank you for visiting my site to learn more about me and the work I do through Oakes Healing Arts. My name is Lisa Marie Oakes and I have lived in Rancho Bernardo with my husband and 2 children for over 15 years. We love this community and I am grateful to be able to serve my neighbors and friends with this healing work.
I am a California Licensed Massage Therapist and have been practicing massage since 1997. I love providing healing massage, a listening ear and a full heart to each and every client I serve.
My training includes : Swedish Massage, Tui Na, Deep Tissue and Sports Massage, Chair Massage, Oncology Massage, Gentle Scar Tissue Release Therapy, Energy Work, Reiki, Trigger Point Therapy, Cranio-Sacral Therapy, Senior Massage and many other modalities to allow me to create a customized healing session for each client.
I am grateful to have been given a gift to be able to feel very intuitively with my hands. It's a great honor and a lot of fun to listen to my hands and intuitively find the tight muscles or the source of energetic imbalance when working with a client.
Touch can awaken the healing power of our own bodies by bringing awareness and energy to areas needing attention. Touch reminds us that we are not alone and massage allows our bodies to be free of daily stresses and just BE. This simple act of being present with ourselves can have great benefits, making room for healing, creativity, peace and calm.
My work is currently focused on serving the Rancho Bernardo community in North County San Diego. CA. I provide in-home and residential care setting visits serving seniors, those working with a cancer diagnosis, either actively in treatment or after treatment and others looking for a therapeutic touch for pain management and relaxation. I also offer Gentle Scar Tissue Release for clients at least 6 weeks after surgery to assist in releasing scar tissue to reduce adhesions and pain. See the pages to the left for your specific interest.
I love to work with children. It's amazing how much stress their growing bodies can hold. Releasing these stresses from the body as they move into adulthood frees them to grow without physical baggage from trauma, stress, or growing pains. See my children's page for more information.
I deeply believe in the healing powers of massage and energy therapy. My speciality is working with those who need an extra healing touch and a listening ear.
I hope that we'll work together soon.
