Welcome Lisa Grierson and RMT services to the clinic!
Lisa Grierson, Bkin, RMT
Lisa has always had a fascination with the human body. Being an elite athlete in high school, she understood from an early age the importance of feeling strong and happy in her body and was shown how different therapeutic modalities greatly aided her recovery from injury. This interest brought her to the University of Calgary where she completed her Bachelors in Kinesiology. With this degree, she worked alongside a physiotherapist developing treatment plans and teaching exercises to clients. Throughout the years, Lisa travelled through Asia and Latin America and experienced firsthand how health and wellness is understood in other cultures. She began practicing yoga, meditation, breathwork, mindfulness - realizing that there was much more to health than the physical body. Lisa prioritizes living a balanced life, where physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health must all be addressed equally.
Eager to learn more and get more hands on experience, Lisa attended the Vancouver College of Massage Therapy and became a Registered Massage Therapist in 2017. She loves massage therapy because she is able to build a relationship with her clients and educate them on how to take control of all aspects of their health. Her treatments focus on calming the nervous system and treating the body as a whole with swedish massage, myofascial release, muscle energy technique, trigger point release and dynamic stretching. Lisa likes to create a treatment plan that focuses on getting her client back to what they call their normal, whether it’s playing a sport at an elite level, walking their dog daily or playing with their grandchildren without pain. How we live our life and carry out our passions is important, and Lisa is here to help her clients get back to what makes them happy!

Her love for the outdoors and recreation has brought about a passion for treating sports related injuries, whether they are chronic or recent. Alison uses knowledge and training of anatomical acupuncture to focus on treating imbalances in the body due to overstrain, sprain, breaks and general pain.
She understands the importance of maintaining optimal health and wellness of the body, in order to continue pursuing a life filled with one’s favorite activities and adventure.

Alison believes in the healing power of “food as medicine”, and will often work with “Yang Sheng Fa”, a traditional technique of using lifestyle and food recommendations to support the patients healing.
During a session with Alison, she will guide you through a history of your own personal health and constitution, where she will discover patterns from a Chinese medicine based diagnosis which may be causing imbalance in the body. From here Alison will develop a treatment that is tailored to your own unique needs, utilizing acupuncture, acupressure, cupping, herbalism, tui-na massage, or any other TCM techniques that are indicated for your healing journey.

"Alison from Pine & Needle is, quite simply put, amazing. I received acupuncture treatments following a shoulder surgery and couldn't have been happier with the results. Alison was always professional, courteous, kind and considerate regarding my treatment and provided a very comfortable and relaxing space. I found the entire experience both physically and mentally meditative and would definitely recommend Alison to anybody seeking TCM or acupuncture. Looking forward to my next treatment!"
