Lizzy became interested in holistic health through her own healing experience. In 2011, she was injured in her job as a lifeguard. This led to a huge personal transformation on all levels. She came to realize certain things to be true: that body's natural state is good health and that the body knows how to heal itself and be well. What you need to know is how to support yourselves in this process. Through her own process, she became a holistic health practitioner, clinical hypnotherapist, yoga, and Pilates instructor.
