‘One of the greatest joys of my life is talking with people about their health. I have seen many everyday miracles, and love participating with people on this journey.’ – Lisa, on her healing philosophy.
Lisa Meyerson is a nationally board certified (NCCAOM) Acupuncturist. She has been practicing since 2004 and has been licensed in Illinois since 2012. Her primary specialty is in fertility and women’s health. She also has extensive training in nutritional supplementation and pain management.
Lisa began her interest in alternative health at an early age by way of her eldest brother. His concern for her sweet tooth led them on a journey to health food stores and to reading a book called ‘Sugar Blues’ by William Dufty, a gift to her when she was only eight years old. In her 20s, as a hobby, she began counseling people on proper supplementation and diet and worked with people with a variety of conditions such as cancer and multiple sclerosis. In her 30s, she trained as a Reiki practitioner and began seeing the everyday miracle of the use of healing touch. She felt that Chinese medicine would be the perfect next stage in her path as it has integrated energy medicine with herbal, dietary and lifestyle coaching.
Lisa first obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Movement Studies (Dance and Dance Therapy) from Naropa University, the only accredited Buddhist university in America, where she also acquired an extensive background in meditation. From there followed a Master’s degree in Chinese medicine and an extra Bachelor’s degree in nutrition at Pacific College and Midwest College of Oriental Medicine in Chicago. Her primary mentors were Dr. Hui Yan Cai and Helen Wu who provided support and knowledge in a variety of health issues such as fertility, pain alleviation, immune system weakness, and allergies.
Lisa is also completed a post-graduate clinical integration mentorship with renowned Five Element acupuncture practitioner, scholar, author & teacher, Lonny Jarrett (www.nourishingdestiny.com) in the Berkshires. Lisa’s continued studies with Mr. Jarrett combine ancient tradition & theory with a modern perspective to create the highest context for an individual’s healing.
She is very excited about continuing her practice with the great community at Heartwood Center!
