Meet The Therapists
Lisa Stacey was born and raised on a farm in Green County, Ohio. She moved to Clinton County, Ohio in 1993. Growing up on a farm, Lisa was involved in 4-H and enjoyed working with and raising healthy livestock. After high school, Lisa worked for an agricultural retail business and with a local veterinary service. This only deepened her compassion for the hurting animals in need of physical and mental support and healing. In 2012, she received her certification as Reiki II Practitioner from Center of Light & Serenity Holistic Health. In 2014, Lisa received her certification in Canine Therapeutic Massage Therapy (CTMT), Senior Canine Massage Therapy (SCMT) and Canine Sports Massage Therapy from Rocky Mountain School of Animal Acupressure and Massage in Colorado. In 2015, she also received her Large and Small Animal Acupressure Therapy (AAT) certification. She then attended Geary Whiting’s Equine Massage School in California (2017) where she became a Certified Equine Shiatsu Massage Practitioner (CESMP). During this schooling Lisa received instruction in natural hoof care, saddle fitting, and strength, conditioning, and nutrition for horses and humans. Lisa’s desire is to become a part of each animals “wellness team” by working together with the animal’s owners and veterinarians for the best interest of each animal. This will help each animal live a life that’s balanced physically and emotionally and to help support each client’s “human companion.”
Jay Stacey was born and raised in Clinton County, Ohio. Growing up on a farm, Jay learned about farming from his grandfather and older brother. He was involved in 4-H in his youth, raising sheep on the family farm and spent many hours on horseback with his family. After high school, Jay continued his love of farming working for a swine and grain operation in Warren County. He began building his own independent farming operation, which is his way of life still today. Jay attended and received his certification in 2017 as a Certified Equine Shiatsu Massage Practitioner (CESMP) from Geary Whiting’s Equine Massage School in California. He was also instructed in natural hoof care, saddle fitting, and strength, conditioning, and nutrition for horses and humans.
Jay and Lisa married in 2003 and have six children and many grandchildren. Many years and hours were spent with their children teaching them how to be responsible human beings and humane animal caregivers. During this time, the family raised and cared for a large Boer goat herd, beef cattle, sheep, chickens. They also had horses and dogs on their farm. The children raised and showed cattle, sheep, hogs, goats, and turkeys during their 4-H years. They have now grown into adults and are passing on these traits to their children. Jay and Lisa are so proud and grateful for this large family God has entrusted to them!
