She is continually amazed at just how effective this medicine is at treating our youngest family members, and is now proud to be able to offer this high quality care to your whole family.
"Lisa's warmth came through in her email response to my inquiry about starting acupuncture and from my first visit I knew I was in good hands. Lisa has helped me relieve stress, improve my fertility, and learn how my mind, body, and eating habits impact each other. I feel better than I have in years and I'm so glad I found Lisa. I highly recommend her!" BK
"Lisa is amazing and sweet. I first went in for pain management, and continue to visit for different things. Lisa takes a very thorough look at your overall health and it is a check up each time you visit. She treats many things each time I go, and I usually fall asleep on the table. It is painless, comfortable and relaxing. I always leave feeling better than when I came in. I can't recommend her enough!" JM
"For years, I struggled with periodic bouts of acid reflux. I tried many over-the-counter conventional and alternative treatments, and nothing really helped. Eventually it became enough of a problem that my doctor prescribed omeprazole. Still no real relief. I had a consult with Lisa, and she gave me an herbal formula, which was the first thing that actually seemed to help. Eventually, I was back to normal. Now if I have an occasional recurrence, I go to Lisa for herbs." CL
"In addition, Lisa has helped me with another difficult-to-treat condition known as restless leg syndrome (RLS). Again, in a case when conventional and other alternative approaches have offered little or no relief, Lisa's herbal treatment helped. I highly recommend Lisa. She is friendly, thoughtful, competent, and she helped me in cases when other approaches did not, and for that I'm very thankful!" CL
