LISA WOOD, LMP
I graduated from Ashmead College in 2005 with honors. An
805 hour accredited program that included Anatomy, Physiology,
Kinesiology, Pathology, Swedish, Sports, Trigger Point & Deep Tissue
courses. I am a licensed massage therapist in the state of Washington. I continue
to expand my knowledge, experience and expertise in bodywork and I
attend workshops and classes as often as possible to enhance my skills
to better serve my clients.
I started my first
massage therapist job at Harmony Massage. After learning much about
massage therapy, I decided to move on to Edmonds Massage Therapy, which
later became Accolades Massage Therapy. Then in 2008 my dream became a
reality as I went into business with a co-worker and we opened up
Crescent Moon Massage Therapy. In 2010 we both decided to go our separate ways and open up our own businesses solo. I can think of nothing more I'd rather
be doing for a career than massage therapy.
becoming a therapist I worked for the Shoreline School District as a
para-educator for 9 years. It was during this time when a little girl I
worked with had cerebral palsy and I would accompany her to her therapy
sessions. She would receive massage on her atrophied muscles and it
really seemed to make her feel better. This was the exact moment I knew
I wanted to be able to see that look in someone's eyes after I made
them feel better. Just knowing I could help someone in pain was enough
motivation for me to work hard and become a therapist.
my massage sessions with you I find out what you specifically want to
have the most work on and I tailor your massage to your specific needs
and wants. I check in at the beginning for the depth you want your
massage at. After that, I let you go into your "zone out" mode and only
talk to you if you engage me first. I do, however, expect you to speak
up if you ever need deeper or lighter pressure. It is much more
satisfying and a good experience for you if you communicate with me
anything you don't like or want more of during the massage. Also, you
are always welcome to bring your own music if you don't feel like
listening to relaxation-type massage music. Your massage session is all
And lastly, but by far not the least,
sometimes you will meet Lily when you come in for your massage. Lily is
a BIG Great Dane with a heart of gold and she loves everyone. She is
not in the room when you get your massage and she's a very quiet girl.
However, she is kinda like the "receptionist" in that she greets you at
the door. She will never jump on you. She will only lean on you. And
you will fall madly in love with her! I look forward to working with
NOTE: Lily now stays at home because of her disability, which she receives massage for and it helps tremendously!
However, she's still my "wing man".... :) AND, once in awhile, when some of my long time clients really miss her, I bring her in to work for the day!
HOURS OF OPERATION:

It is with great sadness that Lily is no longer with me. She crossed the rainbow bridge on December 1, 2014. She is missed greatly. A one of a kind angel dog.
