About Acupuncture


Acupuncture is an integral part of medicine and the health care system in many countries and has been for thousands of years.  Acupuncture utilizes the insertion of small needles, Asian body work, cupping and gua sha to regulate and balance the “qi”, or body’s energy network, and the musculo-skeletal, circulatory, lymphatic and nervous systems to help the body heal and restore balance.


The World Health Organization cites numerous conditions that acupuncture can help treat, including: pain management, musculoskeletal conditions, psychological conditions, neurological conditions, Respiratory conditions, EENT disorders, hypertension, Gastro-Intestinal conditions, gynecological conditions, substance dependence and weight loss support.

"I believe that there is a better way to health and wellness.  I believe that true healing can occur when Alternative Medicine works together with Conventional Medicine to help patients achieve their greatest potential and healing.  My goal is to help my patients achieve their greatest level of health and happiness;

whether that is by reducing pain, addressing stress or mental health issues, allergies and digestive disorders or any myriad of things in between.”

"I came to Island Life with an impressive list of ailments that I did not want to address with drugs, we're we're not responding to medication. Suffice to say that after just a few visits the list has gotten remarkably smaller. I admit to being a bit of a skeptic going in, but no longer. Not only is the process painless, Lisa's caring nature is a delight." -I.L.

"Acupuncture has really helped my shoulder problems. As a chiropractor I had never tried acupuncture until I went to see Lisa. She takes her time and has real concern for how you're feeling and what she can do to help. I recommend her to my patients as well."-G.M. 

"This is a warm and caring environment. I feel Lisa knows what she is doing and my symptoms are improving." - J.G.
