Lisa Noto M.S. L.Ac I
have been practicing Eastern medicine for more than 24 years. My first encounter with Eastern modalities came with the birth of my daughter 25 years ago. About two weeks after her birth, I began to experience postpartum depression. I went to my doctor and all that was offered were antidepressant medicine. I was never a person to take drugs, so I searched for an alternative cure. I was introduced to Shiatsu (Japanese Acupuncture) by a friend. After my first treatment, I felt like someone “turned the light back on” in my body and my brain. I continued treatment and kept getting more energy and feeling like I was 16 again. I knew more people needed to experience this work and to be educated in alternative therapies in order to regain health.
I became a certified Ohashi Shiatsu practitioner, Master Reiki and Thai massage therapist and opened a practice in Pennsylvania in 1994. I was surprised to see how many other people were searching for holistic ways to heal.
From 2000 to 2003, I studied Acupuncture at Tri-State College of Acupuncture in New York City. I hold a Master’s Degree in Acupuncture, accredited by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine and licensed by the North Carolina Acupuncture Licensing Board.
I have had the pleasure of studying with many notable acupuncture teachers such as:
Japanese Meridian Acupuncture with Kiiko Matsumoto.
Balance Method with Dr. Richard Tan.
Trigger Point Release with Dr. Mark Seem
Tuina with Jeffrey Yuen.
Cosmetic Acupuncture with Martha Lucas, Mary Elizabeth Wakefield and Michelle Gellis.
I am also interested in teaching the importance of Food as our Medicine.
I am certified in Mei Zen Facial Rejuvenation, using acupuncture and acupuressure to revitalize the skin of the face and neck.
I am proud and humbled to be a part of this wonderful healing medicine that brings natural relief and vibrant health to the masses.
