Acupuncture works via the body’s natural healing systemsBy inserting very fine needles into specific points on the skin, acupuncture stimulates the body’s own healing responses. It is being increasingly understood in Western medical terms and validated by clinical trials. Scientific evidence, which has been building up for the past 30 years, shows that acupuncture stimulates nerves which send messages to the spinal cord and brain, releasing feel-good chemicals, and stimulating anti-inflammatory and painkilling mechanisms in the body.

I was not a fan of needles and acupuncture, but due to some back pain I was struggling with, I decided to try Lisa when she told me we would work together and take it slow. We did a thorough intake of just talking before I laid down on the table.She used only a few needles instead of the overload I had another time I tried acupuncture, and she did some cupping and heat therapy, which helped me to relax. She stayed with me the entire time in case I had another panic attack. The result lasted for 2 weeks- my back pain was much less and I was able to move more freely. I also had more energy and less headaches. Highly recommended!Kate
After ripping my hamstring almost 13 years ago, I resided to the fact that I would always have daily pain. I initially sought treatment from Lisa for a strained muscle in my back, it was so successful we started to focus on my hamstring. Lisa’s treatment has been the only element that has alleviated me of continuous hamstring pain. I have such confidence and trust in Lisa. Her compassion, knowledge, and humor combine to holistically provide me care, physically and mentally.Lorraine
