Acupuncture can be a safe, effective, natural alternative to surgery for hernias. Generally, the smaller the hernia, the easier it is to correct. The hernia can be reduced and often eliminated.

What causes hernias?

  1. Prior injury to the area
  2. Weight lifting
  3. Prior surgeries
  4. Obesity and weight loss
  5. Lack of physical activity

What is a hernia?

A hernia is the protrusion of an organ or organ tissue through a weak spot in the surrounding muscle or muscle tissue. Causes include injury, surgeries, obesity (and weight loss), weight lifting or lifting heavy objects, and a lack of physical activity.

"... what made me write this review was the hernia she cleared up for me in three visits. I thought I was in for surgery for sure, but she was able to reduce the swelling and protrusion and now I am back in action. Thanks Lisa!"

"The following is my testimonial about the efficacy of acupuncture in treating my ventral hernia. I am very pleased to report that my hernia has been completely stable for almost one year without surgery. It no longer aches, and I do not feel the overwhelming fatigue that I did initially. It still bulges by the end of the day, but nowhere near as much as it used to and not at all at other times. I have been able to lift, swim, kayak and work without any difficulty at all related to the hernia. I am thrilled I did not need to undergo another debilitating surgery."
