My name is Lisa M. Mackay and I am a state Licensed Acupuncturist in Massachusetts. I have a Master's Degree in Chinese and Japanese Acupuncture from the New England School of Acupuncture. I also have a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology and Sociology from UMass Boston. I have been practicing acupuncture since 2004.
As a system of medicine, acupuncture is over 2500 years old, and may have been practiced in China in a rudimentary form 5,000, even 7,000 years ago. The oldest continuously used medical textbook is the "Huang Di Nei Jing" ("Yellow Emperor's Internal Classic").
I use both Japanese and Chinese Acupuncture in my practice. I use Japanese needles that are very fine like the thickness of a piece of hair. I also use another modality called moxibustion which helps relax muscles and enhance what the needles do. My Facial Rejuvenation with Acupuncture (FRA) Program uses needles, jade rolling, and LED lighting masks, all helping bring circulation & healing to the face.
I offer a very relaxing atmosphere for my patients with music or waves playing in the background while receiving a calming treatment. My patients always leave my office smiling feeling tranquil and in-tune with themselves, their body mind and surroundings.
ACUPUNCTURE AND PAIN
Acupuncture is a wonderfully effective way to treat pain. It brings circulation to the injured area therefore brings down inflammation and helps promote healing. It reduces pain and helps mobility.
FACIAL REJUVENATION WITH ACUPUNCTURE
I offer a Facial Rejuvenation with Acupuncture program, I call it FRA. It helps reduce the signs of aging. Acupuncture, facial Tui Na with jade rollers and sculpting shapes, along with LED facial mask will bring movement of blood and stimulate the production of collagen producing a youthful glow. Look at Facial Rejuvenation page for more details.
I also treat patients with Anxiety and panic attacks. Acupuncture helps to calm the symptoms of Anxiety such as overthinking, headaches, tightness in the chest, shortness of breath and digestive issues that come under the IBS diagnosis.
The Acupuncture treatment helps the patient actually feel more grounded and to think more clearly.
ACUPUNCTURE AND ANXIETY
Acupuncture has been used for 3000 years to treat fertility. It treats a patient's physical issues, hormonal imbalances and stresses that come with difficulty conceiving. Acupuncture has been proven to relieve stress, harmonize energy that is not flowing in the right direction and also to strengthen the overall body's Qi (energy). We need all those aspects working together to help result in a healthy pregnancy.
Acupuncture is a treatment which works very well with all the different issues that our Veterans experience. It eases chronic pain and calms any stress/anxiety one may feel and helps reduce PTSD symptoms. Look at the Treating Veterans page for more details.
