At your first visit
Lisa will conduct a thorough intake evaluation asking questions specific to your main complaint, as well as many questions relevant to your overall health. Please print and fill out the First Visit Form before you arrive.
Please wear loose, comfortable clothing and be sure to eat a small meal prior to receiving treatment.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments needed is determined by several factors, including your overall health, severity of symptoms, and response to treatment.
Initially, you can expect to come in for 2-3 treatments, after which Lisa will have a good sense of your progress. A treatment plan that you feel comfortable with will be established at that point.
Is acupuncture safe? Is it painful?
Lisa uses only sterilized and disposable needles, so you can rest assured that your acupuncture treatment is completely safe. Each needle is used only once and disposed of in a sharps bio-hazard container after use. Acupuncture needles are much thinner than standard hypodermic needles used by phlebotomists.
In fact, most needles aren’t much thicker than a human hair! Many clients report not feeling anything at all, while others may feel a slight pressure or heaviness. Essentially, the experience is painless and actually quite relaxing, even for people who dislike needles.
All are welcome here.
"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
