Why Our Natural Treatment
For Pain Is So Effective
Pain is in the brain
The way the brain functions can really work against chronic pain patients. The brain develops well-worn "pain pathways" that become the status quo. So, while you may think the pain is in your back, research shows that it may actually be your brain that is the culprit. Neuromodulation techniques like acupuncture and mind-body medicine are fantastic at helping the brain develop new neural pathways.
Your body is a garden, not a machine
Your doctor treats pain as though it is a mechanical issue, like you are a robot with interchangeable parts. Our approach is different: We treat the body like a garden. Our experience is that the right nutrients and other lifestyle factors amplify your body's natural healing capability, nourish the nervous system, reduce inflammation and create endorphins--powerful healing chemicals.
You get more control
When you understand the factors that are causing your pain, it is empowering. Our treatment model is to get you well F-A-S-T! We have no interested in having a practice full of patients coming for "maintenance" visits. We will put the power of healing back in your hands.
You are not a number
While your doctor is computing blood tests and x-rays, we are evaluating your unique presentation. We are experts at determining whether lifestyle--or a number of other factors--are affecting your pain condition--things that your doctor doesn't consider.
“I first heard about acupuncture a few years ago when my grandfather was being treated for pain. At first, I thought of acupuncture as being a bogus treatment and my grandfather’s testimonials as nothing but an old man’s tales. However, a couple of years ago I found myself suffering from back, and knee pain. I visited many doctors and tried different kinds of conventional medicines but they only masked the pain. One day, I woke up in a lot of pain and I thought of my grandfather and his wiliness to try something new, and a short while later I found myself receiving acupuncture treatment from Lisa Marie.
Having met and received treatment from Lisa Marie has opened my eyes and mind to alternative medicine. Lisa Marie is good at what she does. She treated my ailments, she’s made me feel better than I’ve felt in the past two years. Lisa Marie treats you in ways no traditional doctor would. She shows interest and compassion and she listens. What’s more, she not only takes care of your aches and pain, but she takes the time to treat your whole body. Her gentle touch and loving voice commands confidence which enables you to be more receptive to treatment. Lisa Marie has provided me with several treatments for my condition, and thanks to those treatments I’ve learned that I can live life without pain. Lisa Marie does not stop when the pain does, she will go the extra mile, she teaches you to take care of your body as a whole. She will recommend reading material so you can learn what kind of foods you should be eating, or she will teach you a technique or two on how to relax.
Acupuncture might work for a lot of people; however, if you get the right provider like Lisa Marie, then my friend you have a winning recipe." --E.R., Germantown, MD, IT Specialist

How does acupuncture treat pain?
Acupuncture reduces inflammation, improves blood circulation and relaxes muscles, tendons and soft tissue. It enhances your neuroendocrine axis, and regulates your hormone and endorphin levels. Acupuncture helps your brain create new neural pathways which overcomes the "pain pathways" that become ingrained in chronic pain conditions.
How long does it take to work?
Everybody is different and the length of treatment varies. At your initial evaluation, we will create a treatment plan that gives you an estimate for your particular condition. We have no interest in having a practice full of patients coming for "maintenance." Our goal is to help as many people as possible.
What about herbal medicine?
We may recommend an herbal formula based on your specific presentation. Herbal medicines have been used for pain issues for thousands of years. They reduce inflammation, improve blood circulation and help restore depleted glands and hormones, all of which can affect your pain condition.
Do you include dietary guidance?
You will receive specific dietary recommendations based on your unique needs.
What are my chances of success?
Your situation is unique and once we meet with you we will be able to give you our best estimate of time and prognosis of outcome
Will your treatment interfere with my medications?
We will not recommend anything that interferes with your medications. Our goal is to work with you and your doctor for the best possible outcome.
