Shoulder Pain, Insomnia, Neck Pain, and Stress. Lisa Williams is an extraordinary healer. I first went to her for treatment of a strained shoulder, after six months of traditional physical therapy had failed to ease the pain. It noticeably improved within six weeks and soon after, my shoulder was back to normal. But that wasn't even the best part. When I mentioned in passing that I suffered from seemingly intractable insomnia, Lisa began to work on that, as well. For years, I had had trouble falling asleep and also snapped awake most mornings at 4:30 and was unable to get back to sleep. Medication hadn't helped, "sleep hygiene" hadn't helped -- I was resigned to the condition—until Lisa intervened. I now sleep soundly and through the night, and I no longer dread bedtime, because I no longer thrash and toss and lie awake frustrated. Lisa's treatments radically changed my life for the better. I continue to see her regularly, and she has also treated me for plantar fasciitis, occasional knee and neck pain and general stress. Lisa has a true gift for this work, and I couldn't recommend her more highly. -L.P.Debilitating Low Back Pain, Anxiety. Lisa is truly gifted! I had debilitating lower back pain as well as bladder problems and physical therapy sessions were doing little to alleviate my pain. But each session with Lisa brought sustained relief through her focused treatment and her guidance. I was returned to a pain-free life through her expertise. I continued sessions with Lisa and found balance and health in areas of my life that I had not given my attention to previously. A life of sounder sleep, improved digestion, decreased anxiety and general wellness was the gift I received from this truly skilled and compassionate woman. -Linda, Occupational TherapistHand Tremors and Stress. No one could help me until I met Lisa. My hand tremors and muscle weakness are gone. I continue my sessions with her to keep all my gains. She is compassionate and truly gifted. -O.T. Leg Pain. Dr. Lisa Williams is a special person who has a great desire to help correct health problems. Working with Lisa I knew I would feel better. I did. When I first went to see Dr. Williams, I could not walk 10 blocks without pain. I could not walk down steps. I thought my work-out days were over. After 3 sessions with her, I was able to get back to working out 3-4 times a week. I continue my treatment and I am getting stronger each week. - Frank P.Debilitating Low Back Pain, Stress, and Insomnia. Lisa is truly gifted! I had debilitating low back pain as well as Insomnia and nothing helped me. With each session, Lisa's guidance helped me overcome these debilitating problems. I continue my sessions with Lisa and find a wonderful balance in my life! She is amazing! -LisaBack Pain and Relaxation After a five hour plane trip from Los Angeles to New York and other taxing events, I was relieved to be able to have the relaxing environment and calming hands of Lisa from Gentle Touch Acupuncture. I was bent over and could not stand straight, but after only one treatment, it felt like some magic had been worked on my back. It was empowering to know that she was capable of making me stand straight, be out of pain, and more relaxed. That is why I choose to come for a session every time we visit New York. My husband now comes for treatments too. There is no other like Gentle Touch in New York, it is number one for both of us. She is very helpful with other healing advice. We love her. You must check it out. -Lesley and Joe BankerUnmanageable Back Pain. Thank Heavens for Lisa and “Gentle Touch!” Without her genuine concern, sound counsel, and efficacious ministrations, I would no doubt still be plagued with unmanageable back pain. It is because of the treatments with Lisa that I avoided “going under the knife” and now live as a healthy, happy and physically active life. She really cares about her patients, and knows how to make a vast and beneficial difference in their lives. -Tom Dean, President, Murdock Capital Partners.Cervical Disc Herniation and Muscle Spasms. Lisa, I just wanted to let you know that your treatment of my cervical disc herniation and muscle spasms has been miraculous. I was hopeful when you administered the first treatment that I would become healthy and pain free. Your positive attitude, encouragement, and constant reminder that you had successfully treated other patients with similar ailments was reassuring. With each visit, I felt better and I too become a believer. This is not the first time I have been treated for my health condition. I have tried physical therapy many times and have even been to a chiropractor (oh,no). I attribute my recovery to your unique approach, which blends your knowledge of human physiology with Eastern medicine. I looked forward to each treatment as I knew that when I left your office, I would feel better. Please feel free to use my experience as a reference to other patients. I am confident that these patients will become pain free too! -All the best, Doug BerminghamAnxiety, Depression, Digestive Problems, and Back Pain. When I met Lisa, I was in my early twenties and suffering from an array of medical issues that all were being misdiagnosed. It was my first experience with acupuncture but from the moment I stepped into Lisa’s office I knew it was the right decision. Her calm and caring demeanor put my anxieties at ease and we began right away sorting through my issues- anxiety, depression, difficulty with digestion and severe back pain. Lisa always listened to my concerns and treated with a gentle touch. When I wanted assistance making lifestyle changes, she was always supportive and lending a helping hand whether it be with herbal remedies or nutritional knowledge. Fast forward to almost ten years later and I can truly say that Lisa has changed my life. I am medication free and rarely suffer from anxiety. My digestion issues have resolved along with my debilitating back pain. She has treated me through my wedding, a terrible loss and the birth of my first child. Lisa truly is a healer and I feel the utmost gratitude for her kindness, warm heart and healing hands. -MegSleeping Issues and Neck Pain. I had several sessions with Lisa and she was able to solve both of my health problems using her H=W formula. Love the idea! Arm Pain, PMS, Sleep Problems, and Digestive Problems. I was in my late 20s when I suffered from a fall which caused a stress or hairline fracture on my left arm. I had seen a well-known Sports doctor who recommended a surgery to allow proper healing. I consulted with Lisa to see if there are other options. She suggested acupuncture. I attended weekly sessions with targeting / treating my injury. The swelling decreased within days and the pain disappeared in a few weeks. I did not need surgery and almost ten years later, my arm is as good as it was before my injury. During my first intake appointment with Lisa, I had informed her about digestion problems, painful PMS which I could not resolve with birth control pills, lack of energy and acne. She advised me to have a series of acupuncture treatments. I tried to see her regularly, every other week or so. I started seeing changes with my body. She targeted kidney and liver points. It was clear to me that my health has improved. I started getting good night sleeps; I felt stronger and had increased my running. Overall, I am happy that acupuncture is a very sophisticated practice of alternative medicine. Lisa’s practice is built with love and she treats everyone from her heart with great knowledge, her refined skills and best intentions. -EdenKnee Pain and Hip Pain. My doctor wanted me to have knee surgery and I decided against it. Thank God. Lisa is amazing, she knows sports injuries and biomechanics.-T. L.Arm Pain. My arm feels much better and I think it’s because of your therapy! -ADegenerative Disc Disease. My experience with Lisa has been very positive. I had a degenerative disc that physical therapists couldn’t provide a long-term solution for. Also, a cortisone injection only provided temporary relief. Lisa has quickly gotten my back into stable condition, allowing me to play tennis and run consistently again. She has also provided me great nutritional tips along with what vitamins to take. I truly feel grateful for meeting her, and that’s why I’d recommend going her way. I’ll let her know that you may be contacting her. -JHand Pain. Thanks for the info - wanted to let you know that I can actually move my thumb today! It still hurts, but it's the best it's been in a very long time. Absolutely amazing - Thank you!!-AllisonBulging Disc. I had a car accident about ten years ago and ended up with a bulging disk.

I started acupuncture and physical therapy with extreme pain in my neck, shoulders, and numbness and tingling in my hands.

In addition, she suggested other "H-Investments" which were all extremely helpful. Through a series of treatments my entire health improved significantly. Lisa is calm, competent, professional, and very knowledgeable in many many health issues. Thank you!!Schroth Method for Scoliosis and Back Pain. I have tried different physical therapists and acupuncturists, but nothing worked for my scoliosis and back pain. I finally did extensive research and found the Schroth Method to be helpful with scoliosis. I asked around, and I traveled to New York City to work with Dr. Lisa Williams. Meeting Lisa was incredible, she is not only certified in Schroth, she is a licensed acupuncturist. With her professional and Zen-like manner, and expertise, she taught me the Schroth Method to help reduce my pain and gain control over my body. I am so very grateful to Lisa for what she has done for me. I plan to continue my sessions and don't care how much I have to travel! -A.T.Low Back Pain. Dr. Williams is a different type of physical therapist!
