Acupuncture with Lisa Mae Osborn

Acupuncture with Lisa Mae Osborn

Using skills that are founded upon both the principles of Japanese Meridian Energetics and modern Western Osteopathic Trigger Point and pain science research, I bring you 20 years of experience, compassion and hands-on body wisdom to our treatment. You will leave the clinic feeling seen, heard, and most importantly, different than you arrived.

Classical Medicine Made Modern

Classical Medicine Made Modern

"The principle of using these fine needles is easy to say but difficult to master. Ordinary skills of acupuncture maintain the physical body;
high skills maintain the spirit, use spirit to reveal spirit..."
- Ling Shu, Scroll One, p. 1

Acupuncture Lineage

Acupuncture Lineage

Like my teachers before me, I continue to make a concerted effort at refining the teachings of the "Ordinary and the High Skills of Acupuncture" with respect to Classical Japanese Acupuncture theory and practice, especially as it is articulated in the Acupuncture Physical Medicine (APM) approach that derived from this effort, and to Kiiko Matsumoto's ongoing work with Master Nagano, her teacher. To that end, I thank Mark Seem, Ph.D., L.Ac.  and Kiiko Matsumoto for their wisdom, guidance and blessing to treat patients.

Education

Education

One of my main goals is to see you as you are, and to help you learn about your self. This is an ongoing, dynamic process of understanding perceived patterns of limitation and repetitive stress, and taking active, practical measures to change those patterns.

The Treatment Room

The Treatment Room

Cozy, warm and welcoming, this has been my practice space for nearly two decades, and our clinical encounter maintains the air of a casual conversation between friends, so that you always feel welcome and at ease.

Tools of the Trade

Tools of the Trade

Cupping, moxibustion, and gua sha, or frictioning, are just some of the techniques that I use in Japanese Acupuncture and Acupuncture Physical Medicine. We also use massage, therapeutic exercise, and rehabilitative yoga; whatever it takes to get you back to feeling right again.

Myofascial Trigger Point Manual

Myofascial Trigger Point Manual

This groundbreaking text, written by Janet Travell with vital input from David Simons, is one of the most important handbooks for many myofascial practitioners like me, seeking to source the root causes and treatments of muscular pain and dysfunction. These well-worn books never leave my desk.

 "The easy road is also the most mediocre, boring. What is difficult to attain is the most cherished. The greatest gain is demanding of the greatest risk. We must be willing to go out on a limb--that is where the fruit is."   -Swami B.V. Tripurari

 seeks one thing only: the good of the one loved. It leaves all the 
other secondary effects to take care of themselves. Love, therefore, is 
its own reward."   -Thomas Merton

   One day the trees are bare, and suddenly they're covered in green- One 
day the earth seems barren, and the next the shoots are bursting open. 
Cling to what was and branches covered in dried brittle leaves are the 
rule of the day. Strip yourself down to the bone and risk the new life 
surging through you. We're going down to the bone here...   -Gil Hedley, Integral Anatomy
