Lesley treating a patient

“It’s a different conversation here at MindfulLIFE Acupuncture.  We strive for healing and wholeness by addressing the deeper underlying cause of symptoms.”

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.

“I have been in and out of acupuncture for the last few years and can tell you that Lesley is just great! She is professional, knowledgeable and truly works to help your body help itself.”

“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.”

I found Lesley when I was at my wit's end with pain and depression. I had had multiple orthopedic and neurosurgeries and worked through the pandemic as a nurse practitioner. I did not realize the toll all that had taken on my body. For the last several months I have worked with Lesley and the transformation has been amazing! Part life coach, counselor, and acupuncturist, Lesley has helped me put myself back together. I am feeling a sense of well-being I have not felt for at least 3 years since my chronic pain journey began. After one acupuncture visit, I felt so open-hearted that I went directly to a friend's house and gave her the warmest hug and greeting that I have ever felt. My friend and I both needed that--magical! Look no further for a partner in your healing. Lesley is it.

Lesley has helped me achieve the sleep and relaxation that I have been searching for. Throughout the handful of sessions we have had, I have learned a lot about myself and how to manage the stress of my daily life. She's great to talk to and highly educated in her fields of study. She makes the entire process very manageable and comfortable. Do yourself a favor and check her out!
