Marlisa considers her ability to help others help themselves the most valuable asset to her healing career. She has served as an integrative health professional for over thirty years, starting with a yoga certification and studies in CranioSacral therapy. A naturalized citizen of Iceland, her healing work began on Iceland’s northern coast where she opened the first yoga studio and healing center.

Realizing the need to help her clients more fully embrace their own dynamic power, she introduced the element of sound via the use of tuning forks.
