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."
