I am a holistic chiropractor and Ayurvedic Practitioner. I practice a very ancient system of healthcare called Shaka Vansya Ayurveda that has been helping people for thousands of years to gain and maintain health. Through pulse diagnosis, we can detect imbalances that would otherwise go undetected. I then verify this information via labwork and applied kinesiology testing, and create a plan using diet and very pristine herbal preparations designed to gently bring you back to health. As an adjunct to your care I will often add the following therapies and treatments: Ayurvedic Marma Therapy: Opens the subtle channels to speed up the healing process by reawakening the intelligence of specific organs and systems in the body through a very targeted treatment protocol. Network Spinal Analysis: A wonderful, gentle yet profound system of chiropractic that releases deeply held tensions and stress in the body/mind. SEIMEI Energy Healing and Pain Relief: A non-touch healing technique from Japan that promotes health and healing. It takes only a few minutes to remove stress and pain, and seems to access areas of the mind/body that no other therapy reaches. My goal for each and every one of my patients is Radiant Health. I have a passion for getting to the very source of whatever I am looking at and healing from that level.
When I came to Dr. Lisa I had been feeling very ill for several months. I had gone to all kinds of allopathic doctors and had taken x-rays and other tests galore. Noone could find what was wrong. I was extremely thin, could not eat much and I felt like a quarter of a person; I could barely do my every day activities. I started the protocol Dr. Lisa gave me and after about several weeks I started to feel better. I am starting to gain weight, my appetite is coming back and am feeling generally so much better Dr. Lisa is very compassionate as well as being extremely knowledgeable in her field; when you become her patient her focus on getting you better is unwavering and sincere.
I was in rather bad shape when I came to Dr. Lisa by recommendation of a friend. I had tried so many different methods to resolve my failing health, to no avail. But, Dr. Lisa’s conscientious, measured approach toward helping me out of my rather critical state to one of stabilization has been remarkable. I am delighted with the rapidity of my body’s continued response to her gentle, highly informed approach, as I continue to progress toward optimal health. In the past, I was always wary of recommending healthcare professionals to friends, but I have had no hesitation in doing so regarding Dr. Lisa. My friends are also now grateful beneficiaries of her special talents and gifted aptitude.
When I retired I promised myself that I wouldn’t spend my days watching television, but it wasn’t long before I found myself doing just that. I became a master of procrastination. My medical tests showed that my thyroid was low functioning, and my doctor prescribed Synthroid for me, but after six months or so I quit taking it because my jaws were always clenched and my shoulders were always very tight.
I heard about Dr. Lisa Raskin and asked her if she would work with me; I had heard that one of her her special talents was working with thyroid. When she saw my medical tests she said that she was surprised that I had enough energy to get out of bed and get dressed in the morning…my thyroid levels were so low.
Working with natural medicines and Ayurvedic spices and oils I began to feel my energy and strength return. I no longer fall asleep in my recliner in the afternoon or have trouble getting to sleep at night. And…get this…without even trying, my weight has dropped about 15 pounds. Weight loss was not really a goal…natural energy restoration was…but I’ll take it with gratitude.
I’m so grateful that I was led to Dr. Lisa. I feel so-o-o much better, and many people tell me that I couldn’t possibly be 73 years old. YAY!
