I had a very complex eye problem for which no allopathic doctor could give me relief. I was having rapid eye blinking that was constant and had gotten to the point that I could no longer drive. After seeing at least one doctor in each specialty, I came in to see Lisa for acupuncture. At the end of the very first session, the problem had abated enough that I could drive! We worked on the issue for several months and got it to a manageable place. I consider her a miracle worker, since every doctor I had been to told me that the problem could not be solved and I would just have to learn how to live with it.
Lisa is wonderful. Highly recommend Acupuncture of Del Ray!
Lisa was able to help relieve knee pain so I was able to function without pain medication and walking was again a pleasure. Lisa is knowledgeable about a wide range of health issues and is willing to work with her patients to arrive at the optimum solution for each individual.
Lisa treated me for a breech baby using a moxibustion treatment. Each time she applied the moxibustion I felt my baby move. At the sonogram after my second treatment my baby was turned and I was able to avoid a c-section.
During week 29 of my pregnancy, I took a two week overseas business trip. On the first day there, I developed an aggressive rash that spread from my stomach to my back, chest, arms, hands, legs and feet. It was very painful and grew more serious by the day.
By the time I returned home, I was in utter agony. I could not sleep or concentrate on work. My body was totally covered and inflamed with the rash. My midwife and dermatologist diagnosed the rash as pruritic urticarial papules and plaques of pregnancy (PUPPP). It was the worst case either one had ever seen. Outside of oral and topical steroids, the doctors said PUPPP could not be treated. If I was in unable to stand the pain, they would discuss inducing me in a few weeks. I was mentally and emotionally broken. I refused to take the medication but the thought of enduring the pain for an entire trimester left me in utter despair.
I visited Lisa shortly thereafter for my standing appointment. When she saw the rash, she told me with kindness and compassion that she could help. She used special acupuncture techniques to get the rash under control. Within two weeks, the rash was almost completely gone. I continued two treatments a week for the rest of my pregnancy and the rash stayed under control. Lisa would always facilitate emergency appointments after hours or on weekends to ensure I remained well.
Lisa is an extremely skilled acupuncturist whose gentle nature put me at ease. She restored more than just my health. She gave joy back to my pregnancy.
I am so grateful to have found Lisa at a time in my life where stress and anxiety were at an extreme high; I desperately needed to fine a way to get back to a healthy place. I was also trying to get pregnant which I knew would never happen if I didn't get my body back in balance. From my first session with Lisa, I was completely hooked. Within a few weeks, my anxiety and GI issues improved dramatically. Over the next few months we continued to work on my general health and well being as well as getting my body balanced and healthy enough to conceive. I am now not only feeling better than I have in a long time, I am also expecting my first child! I will continue to include acupuncture in my life long term. Thank you Lisa - I'm lucky to have found you!
"I've been seeing Lisa Anderson for acupuncture treatments for the past year, and I can't recommend her services enough. Lisa went above and beyond during my first few sessions, to get to know me and the nuances of my health concerns. She's friendly, personable, and caring. Her knowledge of herbal remedies is extensive, and she's good about adjusting herbal formulas as symptoms and seasons change. I'm predominately working with her to alleviate allergies and auto-immune issues, and I can excitedly say that this was my first spring allergy season without needing daily allergy meds like Zrytec just to barely survive my days. My energy levels are up. Brain fog is lifting. I've seen a marked, gradual improvement in my health since I started a year ago. I have a little ways to go still, but I'm sure I'll get there with Lisa's help."
