As a runner and a personal trainer, I am using my body all the time. I am frequently troubled by new or recurring injuries. About 2 years ago, I started to see Lisa Ellis, LAC, on a regular basis. Lisa has changed my life, helping me with pain and fixing my injuries. often in just a few visits. Her kind, compassionate nature coupled with her skills and talents as an acupuncturist, massage therapist and herbalist are unmatched. I feel completely at ease in her hands, safe and well-cared for. I highly recommend Lisa without reservation.

Lisa is one of those magical practitioners that is able to find the real source of your muscular pain. Her treatments are intuitive, resourceful and usually a combination of massage and acupuncture. She has a knack for always finding the little muscle that is the culprit. I've been a patient for ten years now and sent countless friends and colleagues to her. I wouldn't go anywhere else for help with sports injuries, recovery from surgery, and general health tune ups. She is excellent at her profession.

Lisa is a rockstar acupuncturist! She is skilled and intuitive. She is definitely the best acupuncturist I have found in Portland.

Seven years ago my back went out and I couldn't walk. I crawled around my house and tried not to sneeze or cough. I went to see Lisa and she jabbed her elbow into my psoas, deep through my stomach, and it hurt, a lot, but after the first treatment, I could walk upright again. And after the second treatment, I could walk upright without pain. Over the years I've been to see her for various sports injuries, hormonal imbalances, and general maintenance. She is a true healer and I don't use that word lightly.
