About Us

Balancing Rocks

At Island Life Acupuncture, we believe everyone deserves a vacation from their pain. We are here to help you live healthier and happier lives. 

Island Life Acupuncture is based in Abington, Pennsylvania and is led by Dr. Lisa McCoog, DACM. At Island Life Acupuncture, we have a different perspective: that your care is not separate but integrated with your Western care. We embrace both Eastern and Western medicine to ensure you receive the best outcomes possible. 

Our mission is to provide holistic, yet science-based solutions for our patient's medical conditions that are environmentally friendly and sustainable for the individual, the community and the ecosystem.
