Journey to healing

Acupuncture is an ancient healing art

It dates back to the 3rd century B.C. and is based on the theory that Qi (pronounced chee) regulates a person’s spiritual, emotional, mental and physical balance.

Acupuncture treatment

The foundation of health lies in the fact that everything is connected

I employ the Five-Element philosophy. It is based on nature and the principles of the five elements corresponding with each of the seasons. The Chinese observed the cycles of nature as reflected in these seasons and in the movement of all living things through all cycles of life.

Many symptoms are common, but that doesn’t mean they are normal. Premenstrual agitation, not being able to fall or stay asleep, or frequent headaches, for example, are conditions with which we learn to live. We really don’t have to have to.

Our clients are our voice

“Thank you so much, Lesley, for the great session the other night. It totally eliminated the migraine and helped tremendously with the TMJ. I have had my nightguard adjusted and am feeling much better. I might reschedule the next appt.”

“I have been under acupuncture treatment with Lesley for almost a year. I first sought acupuncture treatment for cystitis. After about three treatments my symptoms of urinary urgency and frequency were completely gone. Lesley has been working with me to heighten my awareness of bladder irritants and the mind body connection in general. I have had positive unexpected results from acupuncture treatment such as a decrease in nightmares and food cravings. I went from a reluctant and skeptical acupuncture patient to true believer in the power of aligning the body through acupuncture so it can heal itself. It has proven to be an amazing adjunct to Westernized medicine.”

“Since I began working with Lesley my life has improved dramatically. Thanks to her encouraging words, along with acupuncture, I feel much more balanced and capable of handling life’s stresses. I am calmer, less anxious, and enjoying everything so much more.”

“Lesley brings tremendous insight and compassion into her treatment room. She has a deep understanding of nature and how we as people on this Earth can most ideally be intertwined within it. Her straight-forward, thought-provoking style is refreshing. There is not another practitioner that I would more strongly recommend to anyone who asked.”
Kimberley K., LAc, PT, OCS, ATC

“I’m always amazed at my own transformation after my treatments with Lesley. The beauty and depth of acupuncture treatments coupled with Lesley’s expertise and therapeutic guidance is a gift; for me it’s the gift of life. I leave the office both physically and emotionally strengthened. Lesley has taught me how to accept myself and how to truly live with faith, courage, and commitment. I am forever thankful for Lesley’s kindness and friendship.”
