Lisa’s Story

Thank you for investing your time to learn more about me! 

My name is Lisa Karrat and I am a lover of (in no particular order…!) Massage Therapy, Reiki, Holistic Energy Therapies, everything Self-Care, nature, my husband, family and friends; Young Living Essential Oils, learning, growing, reading, expanding, writing, journaling, crystals, yoga, meditation, delicious nutritious foods, walking, moving my body (sometimes I call this exercise ;), and of course THE OCEAN, MOON, STARS, & SUN!!

I love to laugh and smile, and I look for positivity and joy in all things, with the intention to have a contagious and vibrant energy that assists me in making great connections with others! I am truly a lover of life, inspiring and empowering others to love theirs too! I believe everyone deserves to live in joy, it is your birthright!

I started my journey in the Healing Arts to fulfill my passion in service of others. I absolutely LOVE what I do! It fills my heart with such love and gratitude, knowing through my work, others will heal and transform, improving their journey of life.

It may sound simple, but I feel that being of service in a healing profession was always a part of me; a natural calling at the core of my being.

As a young child, I was caring, empathic, intuitive, and nurturing to others. Helping my disabled uncle stay comfortable, rubbing my mother’s sore feet after long nights of work, and other uplifting gestures came naturally to me.  As I grew up, and experienced my own physical and emotional challenges with Chronic Depression & Anxiety,  I became aware of the Healing Arts.

A combination of Massage Therapy, Reiki, Aromatherapy, and many other Physical/Emotional/Spiritual healing practices completely rocked my world in the best way possible!

I started receiving combination therapy in high school during my struggle with extreme depression and anxiety. This combination of healing work became a very regular regiment to manage my physical and emotional symptoms, as well as a way for me to fully overcome and heal from them, and grow spiritually.

This experience gave me the clarity in knowing I wanted to help others heal themselves using holistic techniques and practices.

I learned so much (and continue to learn daily) about the connection of our physical body and our emotions, as well as our energetic field.  In working with one system, you also affect all of the others. In the wise words of Jane Harrington, “When you touch a body, you touch the whole person, the intellect, the spirit, and the emotions”.

And so, I went on to become a Holistic & Integrative Massage Therapist, Reiki Master, Holistic Self- Care Coach, and through this path, I have also developed a strong Intuitive and Divine connection. Planting seeds of significance, joy, peace, and healing feels aligned and most fulfilling in my purpose here and my mission to help others live their best life, in a compassionate and effective way.

At just 20 years old, I attended the most accredited Massage Therapy school in New England, as soon as I met their age requirement. (Special “Thank you” to the Bancroft School for Massage Therapy for being all that I could have ever wanted and more.) The experience of being immersed in their strict and challenging curriculum was amazing. I soaked it all up like a sponge and was ready to go out into the world to spread my knowledge and passion with anyone who I connected with.  At 21, Just Be was born! Learning and growing along the way, I built up a beautiful and successful practice in central Massachusetts where I shared my passion in helping others for over 10 years. I made wonderful progress with my clients, assisting them all on their healing journeys with a variety of physical and emotional ailments.

Life has since brought me to the sunny state of Florida, where I now serve my Massage & Energy Therapy clients here in Venice and Sarasota County. I provide rejuvenating integrative healing treatments in the comfort of their homes.

I also work with individuals on their healing journey as a Holistic Self-Care Coach and Intuitive Divine Guide to heal old patterns that limit you from moving forward, opening you up to more joy, living in love with life again!

 In all areas of my work, my purest intention is always for your highest good, to enhance the quality of your life so you live happy, healthy, vibrant and well.

I absolutely love what I do and I am blessed to be on this journey with you!  The light in me honors the light in you, and I am infinitely grateful for the opportunity to work with you soon!

In love, light, and gratitude

B. Abeles-Kravitz

“There are many good therapists but Lisa is in the exceptional category. When I first started going to Lisa, I had unrelenting pain in my neck and scalp which was later diagnosed as Occipital Neuralgia. Through Lisa’s technique, my pain levels have dropped tremendously. I feel better overall and I leave in a truly relaxed state. Because of Lisa’s unique style of massage, I am on my way to becoming pain free.”

J. Vanderploeg

“For many years I have incorporated  Massage therapy into my life having experienced the benefits to release stress and alleviate my pain. Lisa is by far one of the best therapists I have ever experienced. She brings a wide range of technical skills to each visit and seems to intuitively know how to best assist in the “healing” of whatever is most concerning at the time. Lisa’s calm professional but caring manner is healing in and of itself! I highly recommend her.”

E. Kelley

“Lisa is an excellent Massage Therapist! I have moderate arthritis and I tell Lisa what pain I have and she knows exactly how to make me feel better. She never rushes and is very understanding and thorough in her work. She also has a very sweet personality.”

J. LaFlash

“Lisa is the most gifted, professional, and completely competent Massage Therapist I have ever worked with. Her hands are like magic, with attention to detail like no other. I literally would not be able to do my job daily without her skilled assistance. She is very prompt, professional, kind, and strong. Her varied techniques and focus on my “trouble spots” have kept me moving for many years, and I hope will never stop. Thanks Lisa!”
