My name is Okomfo Lisa Korantemah Pierce. I am a Licensed Massage Therapist, educator, counselor and artist based in Baltimore, MD. I have been a member of the Kwame Nkrumah International Healer’s Association for more than 15 years. At an early age I knew my career path would embrace education and wellness.
I earned my massage certification at the Baltimore School of Massage. I also hold a BA in Communications from Howard University. Currently, I am pursuing a Doctorate in Mind-Body-Medicine.
The path of massage therapist aligned with my healing arts practice. It is my belief that stressful or unhealthy chronic thoughts = headaches, discomfort, circulation issues = the need for muscle manipulation, realignment, and general release. I saw healing the body through bodywork as an integral part of the mind-body-spirit- wellness paradigm.
With four years of experience, I have been providing massage services for individuals in corporate settings, through physician referrals, with repeat clients, and with various on-going volunteer efforts.
For centuries, touch has been practiced as a healing therapy in cultures around the world. On a very basic level, massage does two things: manipulates muscles and tissues to garner optimum skin and body functioning, and satisfies our need for touch as living beings. Touch is essential to our growth, development, and wellness. Bodywork Therapy is an organic vehicle for improving mind, body and spirit.
