Benefits of Acupuncture Services
Dr Lisa James is a Doctor of Acupuncture and Chinese Herbalist
Lisa utilizes Traditional Chinese medicine – acupuncture, Chinese herbs, fire cupping, gua sha, massage and nutrition – to move a person’s “qi” or life force, eliciting a healing response from the body to improve overall health.
She has received advanced training in Japanese meridian therapy, shiatsu massage and orthopedic acupuncture and structural diagnosis. Lisa weaves this knowledge with that of traditional Chinese medicine, creating a unique, individualized style of care. Her calm and gentle demeanor makes working with her therapeutic.
She feels fortunate to have completed her training at the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine in Portland, Oregon. Prior to her career as an acupuncturist, Lisa was an organic gardener for many years; the transition from gardener to doctor of acupuncture was natural as she sees many of the same organic principles applying in both professions. She is happy to be practicing back on the Canadian prairies where she was born and raised.
