Dr. Lisa Gadd has always been fiercely passionate about health, however It wasn’t until suffering a stroke in 2014 that she was able to appreciate the implications of what it is to lose bodily function, to deal with the emotional loss of poor health, or to understand the resilience required to rebuild the mind, body, and spirit post trauma. In this period Lisa harnessed courage and a firm commitment to reframe her belief systems to ensure she was able to come back stronger than ever, and in doing so developed a new level of empathy for the clients she was working with as a health practitioner and coach.

Her special interests are sport injuries, women’s health, TMJ complaints and headaches.
