LISA KINGSLEY, RN, LMT, AP- “Acupuncture, Massage, Certified Personal Trainer & Yoga Practitioner”

Accusage is a wonderful treatment that combines acupuncture and massage. The benefits of this 50/50 procedure are many. The broad strokes of massage increase circulation and warm an area, along with stretching techniques that lubricate joints and connective structures allowing fewer restrictions and better movement. Add to this, tiny acupuncture needles that penetrate superficial tissues and activate a network of cells. These cells trigger a biochemical release of things such as endorphins (pain relief), and serotonin (feel good) into the system for a much deeper effect. The fusion of the two modalities not only speed up and enhance healing, it just feels good! Each treatment is tailored for individual needs. Lisa also combines cupping and guasa as part of the treatment plan. In addition, Lisa is a certified Holistic Personal Trainer using a yoga/Pilates fusion to help clients overcome pain and discomfort.
