Bowenwork with Lisa Toole has been a God send for me. Lisa takes her time and is very wise, comforting and gifted. I have been struggling with chronic pain over the past 16 years due to a neurological disorder that causes my muscles to spasm and contract throughout my body, called Dystonia. I have tried many therapies over the years and nothing has really helped me until now. My very first session was really quite amazing....it was gentle but VERY effective! I felt such a release in my body and a sense of calm and relaxation. Lisa is also very knowledgeable in nutrition and has helped me with digestive issues as well. As I move forward in the process of my healing, I will continue to trust Lisa to help me at a pace that is best for me. Thank you Lisa! - Connie, York, ME
“Lisa was a thorough and patient teacher of this practice, offering ways to self-manage your own care. I thought it was a valuable learning experience, and the hands-on class participation worked very well for me.” - Caroline, So. Berwick, ME
Thank you so much for your (I appreciate your) time, patience and guidance in your Introduction to Bowenwork class. As someone who is on a journey to wellness through alternatives to "modern" medicine, I appreciated your openness and insights. Your instruction offered a learning environment conducive to any learning style and you were willing to alter your agenda to meet the needs of the group. As my own journey to healing myself and others grows, I know the philosophies and techniques of Bowenwork will be an important aspect. I appreciate your willingness to be a resource in my efforts and I wish you continued success on your journey as a healer. - Kim, So. Berwick, ME
"You'll be happy to know that I slept 11 hours on Saturday night (after class). Think my parasympathetic nervous system was activated?! Thank you for teaching!" - Christine, Greenland, NH
SHINGLES: I felt noticeably less pain after my session with you. I'm taking it easy, listening to my body, taking epsom baths & stretching. Still some periodic nerve pain, restless leg at night, but looking forward to next session. Thank you! KP, So. Berwick ME
Nutrition, advocacy, and art... I have had the pleasure of working with Lisa on both a professional and personal level. Her compassion and drive, softened with her sensitive, caring and supportive demeanor, give her the ability to complete what she sets her mind to do. Lisa has mastered the delicate balance of being very articulate, while being a great listener. Her engaging personality is friendly, fun, loyal, responsible, and optimistic. Very present and able to deal with "what is", Lisa adapts well to a variety of situations. She is flexible, open-ended, and receptive to new opportunities and changing game plans without losing focus on the big picture, and the reasons for pursuing them. I have seen Lisa work excellently and independently to suit any situation, but also achieve extraordinary popularity and professional satisfaction, as a member of a team. She works in the spirit of cooperation -- rather than confrontation -- gaining respect along the way. Lisa applies her sensitivity, with attentive and generous ways toward others, making her enjoyable to work with. Lisa excels at work compatible with her high values and ideals. She is capable of totally identifying herself with her job, and fully supports whatever it is that she needs to do every day. Whether it’s educating someone on the options they have for a healthy lifestyle, advocating for the rights of improved education, or making others smile through her artistic work, Lisa prides herself on knowing the work she does makes the world just a little bit better than it had been before. This above-average, engaged collaborator, who is totally dedicated to her pursuits, is someone I would highly recommend.
The first quality that comes to mind with regard to Lisa is integrity. Lisa is someone you can always count on in every aspect of a relationship from business to personal. As an Account Exec, Lisa's customers, relied on her to provide both excellent service and outstanding support which she provided without fail during the 4 years I worked with her and the 15 plus years I've known her.
