"I went to see Lisa after having an MRI on my shoulder.  I was told I would need surgery to correct years of abuse from working construction.  I only wanted to have surgery as a last resort and didn't want to take prescription drugs to mask the pain.  I sought out alternative methods and had acupuncture recommended by others.  I booked an initial appointment with Lisa; she did a total intake and we began treatment.  I experienced relief after the 1st treatment and the road to recovery progressed steadily from there.  We were able to begin to space out my treatments until I now may have one every 4-6 months.  That sure beats surgery!!  Many thanks and much gratitude to Lisa for a job well done!  I can't recommend her enough!" - Will M.




"As someone over six feet tall, I have had chronic back pain on and off for years. Lisa changed the game for me. Hours of countless sitting in school led to constant low back pain. After starting treatment I felt immediate relief. After a few sessions my back pain was dramatically reduced and within a month it was almost gone. Acupuncture is a process and Lisa made it simple, informative, and she even helped by recommending stretches and lifestyle changes." -Jason K.




"My experiences with Lisa McCoog, my acupuncturist, has always been extremely positive. As someone who suffers from bilateral Achilles tendonosis, among other things, my accupuncture treatments have given me faster relief that physical therapy. Prior to having my first experience, I wasn't sure about accupuncture, but now, I am sold. I had treatment with other acupuncturists, and I get the best results with Lisa. She is a very gifted therapist, and I highly recommend her." - Wendy B.

"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.
