Testimonials

"Since first seeing Lisa Meyerson at Zen Shiatsu, my quality of life has dramatically improved. I highly, highly recommend seeing Lisa Meyerson, especially if you are dealing with any chronic pain or sports injuries like I was. Her treatments have been nothing short of life-changing. And on top of being super nice and friendly, she is highly attentive to all of your health concerns and passionate about her work. To give my experience: For a little over three years now, I've been battling pelvic dysfunction and the chronic muscle pain/tightness that comes with it. It was profoundly (and, of course, negatively) affecting every aspect of my life. Prior to meeting with Lisa, I had bounced around between several doctors and physical therapists who were well-meaning, but only helpful to a very limited extent. I remember how frustrating it was to meet with all these specialists, dutifully and patiently follow their advice, but feel no results in regard to pain relief. But then I went to Lisa Meyerson, and even from the very first treatment I experienced significant alleviation of my symptoms. I remember being surprised at how immediate the results were, as my impression was that it would instead be a very gradual process. I've continued to go to Lisa for acupuncture sessions, and in these short months since I started I can very happily say that I am miles better, virtually pain-free. To give a sense of my amazement and thrill: before seeing Lisa, I was often doubtful that this pain-free state I'm experiencing now was something I could realistically expect to ever regain. So especially if you're experiencing a pain scenario similar to what mine was, definitely meet with Lisa." M.R., Actuary

"I first came to Pulling Down the Moon when I was 39 and struggling to maintain a second pregnancy. My OB/GYN suggested I visit a reproductive endocrinologist to discuss fertility treatment options such as IVF... and she also suggested I try acupuncture. The reproductive endocrinologist told me I had a 1-3% chance of conceiving naturally and recommended IVF. While weighing that option, I found Lisa Meyerson at Pulling Down the Moon and signed up for acupuncture. Upon meeting Lisa, I could tell she was warm, kind, and extremely knowledgeable. She is a Licensed Acupuncturist who cares about her patients and takes the time to get to know their individual needs. I began seeing Lisa weekly. After about 3 months of acupuncture treatment with Lisa, I became pregnant naturally, without seeking any treatment from my reproductive endocrinologist. I am now in my eighth month of pregnancy and continue to see Lisa monthly. I believe Lisa's treatments helped me reduce stress and get pregnant. I highly recommend women facing fertility challenges consider acupuncture as part of their journey, and I most highly recommend Lisa Meyerson." L.W., Writer

"I have been practicing conventional medicine for more than 30 years.  For twenty of those years I have had terrible sciatica and pain from arthritis in both heels.  I have had back surgery and physical therapy for years, but the pain persisted. I have suggested alternative medical treatments to patients throughout my career when conventional therapy did not work. I never considered Acupuncture for myself and my physicians never offered it.
My daughter was having issues with fertility and her fertility specialist recommended she see Lisa Meyerson and have Aupuncture. She became pregnant and continued the therapy throughout the pregnancy.  She now has an 8 week old baby girl and I have a granddaughter.
"I decided to see Lisa for treatment of my low back pain and heel pain.  After a few treatments both my heel and back pain had improved significantly. My quality of life has gotten way better.
"Acupuncture has been around for centuries. Lisa Meyerson is trained in the practice of Acupuncture. She has learned the millenniums of the Chinese teachings and knows the channels and points to touch. Lisa has embraced her practice and her results make a powerful argument for acceptance of Acupuncture for treatment of many aliments and her as your practioner." CB, M.D.

"I first met Lisa when I was told that I would not be able to conceive a child without the help of IVF. During our first appointment I immediately felt comfortable and supported by Lisa. She is truly a compassionate and caring person, and as our sessions continued Lisa was no longer the practitioner, but was my friend in this process. I followed her recommendations and was able to conceive naturally!!! I highly recommend Lisa as she is an amazing person to work with that produces amazing results." -A.M, teacher

"Lisa is a compassionate, caring, considerate and thoughtful individual; and with that, her wonderful qualities permeate through in her work. I experienced acupuncture for the first time for fertility, with Lisa, and per her recommended visiting schedule, the first month I consecutively received the practice, became pregnant. I cannot say enough about Lisa and her discipline---she comes highly recommended in my regard."  N.M.

"My first experience with Lisa as an acupuncturist was having a painful stomach cramp. The 2nd time was several months later with what appeared to be my first migraine headache ever. In both experiences being treated by Lisa, my subjective discomfort level went from something like 7/10 to something like 2/10. I think she does incredible work, her bedside manner is very comforting and gentle, and I cannot recommend her highly enough. A+!!!"  A.J. - Web Architect

"With only three hours until I had to catch a train back home from Chicago, I started to experience a terrible migraine headache. I was not sure how I could possibly ride a train with the pounding on the right side of my head, the sensitivity to light and sound, and the complete disorientation and exhaustion I was feeling. I had heard that accupuncture can be effective in treating migraines, and I needed help fast. So, it seemed like time to try it.
Lisa Meyerson made me feel completely comfortable and relaxed and explained a bit about how accupuncture works, as well as which points on my body she would be targeting and why. Her technique working with the needles was confident and quick.
The process took less than a half hour. I sat up and my symptoms were completely gone. I felt a little tingly, but experienced none of the fatigue I would normally feel after the main symptoms went away. By the time I caught my train, I felt clear-headed and energized. It was the quickest I have ever recovered from a migraine, and there were none of the side effects I have had with the medications I have taken in the past. I would highly recommend accupuncture for a migraine headache, especially with a practioner, like Lisa Meyerson, with excellent technique and a kind and respectful manner!"  SJP - ESL Instructor
