Tim Lisbon, B.S., M.S., CST, CHHC, AADP, CCH

The universe can be characterized as a combination of a physical world and a spiritual world. For Tim Lisbon of NOVA Alternative Wellness, this is the Yin and Yang. His unique style of therapy allows the Yin of the physical world to meet and find balance with the Yang of spiritual relaxation and healing.

Tim Lisbon has been providing massage and craniosacral therapies for almost 25 years. A 2nd-degree black belt in Classical Jujitsu, Tim was encouraged to pursue the study of massage by his martial arts instructor. His passion for healing led him on a path rich with exploration and research into the unique ways of the body and mind. In 1993, Tim was in one of the initial groups to receive National Certification in Massage Therapy. Additionally, he was certified as a Chiropractic Assistant for the state of Maryland. For the next ten years, he continued to practice the healing arts as a part-time therapist. During that time, he also achieved his Bachelor's degree in Health Care Administration from Columbia Union College.

In 1998, Tim added to his list of modalities, CranioSacral Therapy. CranioSacral Therapy is a physiological process that requires only the lightest touch of the therapist. It focuses on the natural healing powers that exist within the communication pathways of the spine and the mind. CranioSacral Therapy has been used to improve the body's resistance to diseases including but not limited to, autism, migraine headaches, chronic fatigue, and chronic back and neck pain. Tim received his training from the Upledger Institute, the founder of which, John E. Upledger, pioneered and developed the process.

In 2008 Tim had the opportunity and privilege to attend Sylvia Browne’s Hypnosis Center with Melissa.  They spent 11 fabulous days in training. As a result, Tim is now certified by the National Guild of Hypnotist.  Tim loves to use hypnosis to help people reach their full potential.


Tim's practical experience in the physical world of modern-day America, along with his natural gifts and talents as a therapist, provides a unique experience for all of his clients. He understands the Yin and can easily provide the Yang to balance, center, and heal those who visit NOVA Alternative Wellness.
