Following 3 unsuccesful IUI treatments, my fertility doctor and I agreed to pursue an IVF cycle. Following 3 successive months of taking Clomid and the disappointment of the IUIs, I was more or less open to anything. My doctor suggested I pursue acupuncture concurrently with the IVF cycle. I was hopeful but skeptical of the results. My acupuncturist, Lisa, thoughtfully and patiently worked with me week over week.
She interviewed me about my symptoms, conferred with other professionals, researched solutions on my behalf, while I went through the steps: shots, the retrieval surgery, and the transfer. My husband and I opted for genetic testing, which left us with one viable embryo. Excellent considering everything, but terrifying at the same time because I felt our odds weren’t great. Lisa continued to be a positive voice of reason through our sessions but especially at this crucial point. There are a lot of negative symptoms that acupuncture helped me throughout this process (exhaustion, constipation, water weight gain, et. al) but the most prevailing are the mood swings and negative thinking. I really feel that our acupuncture treatments saved me and led me to a positive result. When I found out I was pregnant, Lisa was one of the first people I notified! She helped me so much through all of this and was an instrumental part of the process.
I’m very grateful to her for all her hard work.

I have never provided a testimonial but do so in hope that my share of my experience can be of benefit to others. Having watched Lisa, through acupuncture, be able to bring relief to many of my wife’s aches and pains when all other approaches seemed to provide little relief has been a blessing. With a recent round of back to back colds and having reached the point of being sick and tired of being sick and tired, I ventured my 1st acupuncture not knowing what relief might come. Just a few minutes of treatment brought welcome improvement of being able to breathe freely and lifted energy level. In watching Lisa at work it is visible to me that for her acupuncture is a mixture of life’s passion, compassion and a channel for providing relief for the suffering of others.

I first came to see Lisa to address the colds my five year old and two year old sons frequently acquired. She helped resolve the colds, for which my family is grateful. My youngest son also fell down quite a bit in his attempts to start walking. Lisa helped out with after concussion vomiting and unsteady walking. I would recommend her to another family in need of care for their children.
— Erika Abberton
I highly recommend Lisa as an acupuncturist. She is dedicated to her craft and you feel results right away. I came to her unable to walk straight, limping and in pain, with a problem of my hips and lower back. In just two sessions, I was able to move without pain.
