Acupuncture  has been tested with great success in a randomized controlled trial * at the Emergency Room of a major hospital in Israel for acute back or neck pain. Results showed a decrease in total pain of more than 40% and an increase in spinal flexion-extension of more than 80% compared to placebo acupuncture. A summary of this research was recently presented by Amos Ziv as a lecture in the European Conference of Integrative Medicine in Florence Italy and at The British Acupuncture Council Conference 2015.

Commonly seen conditions include:

  • back and neck chronic or acute pain
  • reduced range of motion
  • joint pain
  • frozen shoulder
  • golfer/tennis elbow
  • knee issues
  • muscular aches and pains

Lisa also integrates therapeutic massage, cupping and moxibustion with acupuncture if appropriate.
