Origins of Healing By Design

At the early age of 7, Lisa contracted a kidney infection and was confined to a hospital in China for a month. While she was there, the nurses poked her arms with large IV needles several times a day — and she developed a fear of needles! But the experience had an ‘up’ side: Lisa’s compassion bloomed. She felt for all those people rendered powerless by illness and suffering from intense pain caused by treatments that were supposed to help cure. Her deep urge to help people and help them relieve their pain and suffering drew her to make a difference in healthcare. Ironically, after a successful turn as a software engineer, she turned to acupuncture and became a licensed practitioner.

While she conquered her fear of needles during her training, she can still relate to the fear of needles that many people have — even though acupuncture needles are dramatically thinner than hypodermic needles. Even so, a central goal of her research has been to find alternatives to the use of needles. After studying alternative modalities such as reflexology, Lisa developed the Healing By Design Method™, an effective 3-Step process to do acupuncture without needles!

Now, anyone can now enjoy the benefits of acupuncture any time, anywhere.

“Wherever you are in your health condition today, I challenge you to take it to the next level. You owe it to yourself to learn these empowering and practical self-care skills. Your body, your inner doctor, will be so glad you did.”
