About Me...

Hello! I am Lisa, the owner of Golden Lotus Acupuncture, and I am excited to be your partner in health. Let me tell you a little about myself and how I got here..

As far back as I can remember, I have always been intrigued by the Body-Mind connection, specifically how our emotions can affect and be affected by our physiology. I majored in Biopsychology at UCSD with the intention of going on to medical school. However, after going through my own personal health issues and bouncing from one doctor to the next in an attempt to find the answers, I came to realize that conventional Western medicine really only treated symptoms, not the underlying cause, and didn’t take the WHOLE person into account. I had tried acupuncture as a teenager to get relief from an old whiplash injury, but had never thought about turning to it for anything other than pain. After a particularly frustrating visit with my primary doctor, during which she prescribed me 4 separate medications for my symptoms, I finally sought out Chinese medicine as a last resort. After my first comprehensive visit to the clinic (at the college I eventually enrolled in myself), I was hooked! I knew I had found the answers I was looking for in a system of medicine that actually addressed the ROOT of the problem–why I was having the symptoms I had–and heal the imbalance in a safe, effective and natural way. I was so impressed and amazed by this 2,000+ year-old system of healing that I became a Licensed Acupuncturist myself. Six years, 3 moves, and 2 children later I graduated with my Master’s Degree in Traditional Oriental Medicine from Emperor’s College with highest honors. That was over 14 years ago, and I am still honored to be a facilitator in helping others find the answers to their health concerns. 

Your unique health care situation is of the utmost importance to me. I customize my treatments to each person and their specific needs. I am happy to answer any questions you may have regarding how acupuncture and Chinese medicine can benefit you. Whether your desire is to be free of nagging pain, improve your state of health or just general rebalancing, we can work together as a team to help meet your goals.
