We are delighted to welcome Lisa Swanson to our practice. Please see her bio to learn more about Lisa and her expertise.
Lisa Swanson L.Ac. has been in the field of natural medicine for over 15 years. After taking the most vigorous and competitive exams in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine the California Acupuncture Board licensed her as soon as she graduated from the Acupuncture Integrative Medicine College in Berkeley, CA with a Masters of Science degree in Chinese Medicine. Prior to opening a private practice and running retreats she worked with patients at the California Pacific Medical Center in Stroke Recovery, the Kuan Yin Healing Arts HIV and Hepatitis C Clinic, the HAART Methodone Addiction Clinic, Lifelong Medical Clinics in Berkeley and Oakland treating low income families with a variety of internal medicine issues, and the Charlotte Maxwell Cancer clinic. From this diverse background and advanced education and training in The Balance Method she is able to treat any disease or concern comprehensively.
Lisa enjoys working with patients from the holistic perspective Chinese Medicine lends itself to, and often incorporates use of essential oils, and nutritional muscle testing.
