A graduate of National College of Chiropractic, she started her health studies at the University of Maryland, with Honors medical research performed at the National Institute of Health. Next, she spent two years living and working as a teacher with the US Peace Corps in Belize where she encountered chiropractic, acupuncture and herbal healing. She enjoyed the benefits of this type of hands-on, highly personalized holistic health care and recognized she had found her path to help others in the world.
Dr. Lisa attended National University of Health Sciences (aka National College of Chiropractic), completed internship at the Chicago Salvation Army Clinics, and graduated in 1995 with a Doctorate in Chiropractic and basic certification in acupuncture. After raising a family, she went back to school and completed a 4 year masters in acupuncture at Jung Tao School of Classical Chinese Medicine in 2010.
She first opened her home based business Wellness Center Chiropractic and Acupuncture in 1995, then moved with her family to Chapel Hill where she worked in her home-based business until 2015. Her clientele expanding, she then she moved to a professional office center at 800 Eastowne Dr. #103 in Chapel Hill, NC 27514 where she currently maintains an active practice. She particularly enjoys seeing the joy in a new patient’s eyes when they experience their first adjustment or acupuncture treatment; it is very rewarding to have patients who have been patients for years refer friends and family to help them achieve the benefits they have gotten.
Dr. Lisa recently added advanced training in Posture Analysis to her skill set in order to more fully improve the health of clients. Patrons can download a posture app if they so choose to fully benefit from Posture Analysis and watch themselves as their posture improves- making a life-changing investment in their health for years to come.
We frequently get asked the questions: “Why do you use both chiropractic and acupuncture when other clinics only use one of them?” Dr. Lisa recognizes that both hands-on treatments are valuable in their unique way and complement and work well together, enhancing the body’s ability to heal itself so that you can start feeling better faster. People save time, energy and money with the opportunity to choose one or both treatments in one treatment setting at the same visit.
