IMS TESTIMONIALS

Pregnancy
Hi Dr. Lisanti! Just sending a quick hello and a big thank you to you. Our son was born on July 9th, 7lbs. 1oz. and 19 1/2 inches long. He is as cute and healthy as can be. I made it through the labor naturally, without any drugs… using a lot of the breathing techniques and meditation practices we’ve been practicing through my acupuncture sessions. We can’t thank you enough for all of your guidance and support to help make our family so healthy, as a whole.

Anxiety/Depression
I was experiencing stress, melancholy and low energy when I chose to see Dr. Lisanti for acupuncture. Prior to our first visit, I never participated in natural medicine before. From the outset I experienced a positive self-awareness of myself. Dr. Lisanti helped me identify my inner emotional core again and this gave me something I was missing for a while, hope. Whenever I see Dr. Lisanti for a visit, he is really able to re-focus me, cheering me on. His very hope filled approach is inspirational. During acupuncture, even after he has left the room, a healing spiritual aura remains. You feel as though you are not alone. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Lisanti to someone considering seeing him for the first time!

Arthritis
I was recommended to do acupuncture with Dr. Lisanti from a close friend and trusted colleague for arthritic pain in my hands and digestive problems due to a hiatal hernia. Each week produced an aleviation of pain and swelling in my fingers and the reflux, indigestion and disturbed sleep from the hiatal hernia has stopped. Dr. Lisanti took time to explain the treatment process and would follow up and encourage me to follow a recommended home routine. He is a caring and knowledgeable doctor who treats the whole person with thoroughness and respect.

Breast Cancer
I was looking for someone to aid my recovery from breast cancer surgery and mitigate any side effects from radiation treatment. I had done much research on the internet that validated the positive impact of acupuncture specifically for these reasons. The results with Dr. Lisanti have been incredible. Through acupuncture and naturopathic medicine, I recovered very quickly from my surgery and had no side effects from the radiation. In fact, the night after my surgery, I experienced an incredible amount of energy despite the fact that I had general anesthesia in the morning as well as pain reduction medication that should have made me very sleepy. I felt like I was ready to get up and work in the middle of the night. In addition, ongoing acupuncture and naturopathic medicine consultations have strengthened my immune system – I have had less colds. Plus, my neck and shoulder pain has shown improvement. Dr. Lisanti is always interested in receiving feedback on how I am feeling and in offering tips on how to improve my overall health. If someone was considering Dr. Lisanti as their healthcare practitioner I would tell them that they will be very satisfied. He is a great resource and very attentive to each patient’s needs. Plus he runs a very organized office.

Emotional Stress
I was recovering from a divorce and was very stressed out and upset. I had built up so many layers of protection so I could not be hurt- only to find that I was closed off from enjoying life and feeling love. Acupuncture helped me to bring balance into my life, to bring up the things I needed to face. Over a few months I started feeling more alive- more like the “old” me that I understood and appreciated. I got to the point where I could trust myself and my instincts again. Dr. Lisanti and the staff at IMS are very knowledgeable, very dedicated and very passionate about helping others. This really comes through in their approach. Dr. Lisanti was very encouraging and always offered useful recommendations and suggestions. I would say that for this type of treatment it is very difficult to know who to turn to and who to trust. I feel very lucky that in Dr. Lisanti, I found such a highly trained and caring practitioner. I would not hesitate at all to recommend him.

Fertility, Acne, Constipation, Low Energy
My acne was progressively worsening, I was constantly constipated, my energy levels were low, and I couldn’t get pregnant when I first came to see Dr. Lisanti. I had been trying several things for my skin and nothing worked. Seeing Dr. Lisanti was my last attempt and I just hoped for the best. In one month my skin began to clear up, my energy levels increased greatly, and my bowel movements were more frequent and easier. My menstrual and hormones during that time were less aggressive and I was much less emotional. Dr. Lisanti’s knowledge and the way he simplified things made the naturopathic program very doable. He motivated me with his encouraging words and down to earth personality. I felt comfortable being myself and discussing very private and personal matters. He has sincerely changed my life style, health and habits which ultimately prepared my body for pregnancy. In one month with Dr. Lisanti’s treatment, I became pregnant after several years of trying!

Fertility/PCOS
I have PCOS and was trying to conceive for more than two years. I was not happy when my fertility specialist had suggested IUI or IVF as my next step as that was beyond my chemical comfort zone. At fist, I thought acupuncture would help mildly, but wasn’t sure if it was a ‘cure all.’ The results were AMAZING! After leaving my first appointment, I felt like I could run a marathon. So much energy was bursting out of me for days. Even better…I conceived within a month and a half. All natural. No drugs. The way I like it!

Incontinence
I was experiencing urinary incontinence on a daily basis. I was frustrated, embarrassed and my prescription medication was not helping at all. I didn’t want to go out and was angry with my condition. I was desperate and decided to try acupuncture. I wasn’t sure if anything could help. The results with Dr. Lisanti have been amazing. In just about a month my incontinence, which I’ve had for so many years, has practically disappeared, and I feel more confident. I’m not so obsessed about having to be near a bathroom all the time and I’m not so worried about having an accident. Dr. Lisanti has shown me that I can take action to heal myself.

He has patience and a positive attitude which is refreshing to see in a doctor. He is always encouraging and kind. Dr. Lisanti is an extremely qualified doctor who listens to you and who truly wants to help people. I am thrilled that I met him and I trust him implicitly. He has taken away my daily worry, embarrassment and discomfort. I appreciate his hard work and dedication to his patients.

Inflammation
I had inflammation behind my right eye, joint pain and seasonal allergies. I was losing vision in the eye. I had tried everything else without success until I found naturopathic medicine and acupuncture. The inflammation in my eye is totally gone and my vision improved. Acupuncture allowed me to de-stress and allow my body to heal itself. Dr. Lisanti made me realize that the power to heal my body was all in my hands. He made me understand that my condition was a symptom of a greater underlying issue that I could change with naturopathic medicine and acupuncture. Dr. Lisanti found me when I was stranded in the middle of an ocean with no life jacket. I was expecting him to toss me a flotation ring but instead he reached out his hand, pulled me to shore, dried me off and taught me to swim. I am so thankful.

Irregular Menses
I was having difficulty with irregular menstrual cycles, mood swings, depression, bloating, lethargy, and suspected hormonal imbalances. I followed Dr. Lisanti’s naturopathic guidelines for nutritional counseling, nutraceutical supplementation, herbal treatments and lifestyle changes. By the 3rd day of treatment, my energy was soaring and my mood lifted. By the end of the 1st week, the bloating was gone and my moods evened out and the following week my menstrual cycle was back on track. Dr. Lisanti has contagious, positive enthusiasm which helped me believe in myself. He is very available to his patients, gives realistic guidelines, goals and invests a lot of time customizing a unique plan just for you. He also engages you in the project of you , by giving tasks to complete so you can be accountable for your own health. Dr. Lisanti knows exactly what he’s doing and he lives and practices what he teaches. He puts much time and energy into each one of his patients and if you can devote an equal amount and trust him, then you will see results!

Neck Pain
I had gotten hurt at work herniating two discs in my neck. I literally heard a pop and the discs ended up pinching a nerve. I could not move my neck up or down or side to side. I called Dr. Lisanti the next morning and he made time for me. I can’t even explain the way I felt when he was done. I was able to move my neck again and the pain was nearly gone. No doctor could have given me that much relief without meds. There’s no other treatment that I would recommend for neck pain. Dr. Lisanti is the nicest doctor and is very supportive too. Look no further than him when considering treatment for neck or any other type of pain.

Wellness
I was tired, overweight, and feeling like I needed to rescue myself. I decided to do acupuncture with a personalized detoxification program. The results were outstanding. I had more energy, my skin became softer and clearer and my cramps disappeared with menstruation. I felt lighter inside and out. I became much calmer and aware of myself and my environment. Digestion also improved significantly. Dr. Lisanti always praised me no matter how small or large the results were. His genuine concern and interest with my success helped motivate me. The experience with him will be life altering. The clinic environment has a warm energy that you feel you’re visiting with friends. The staff at IMS is wonderful and supportive, always cheering me on.

Sciatica
I have scoliosis and have had several attacks of sciatica since 2009 to the present. After 4 acupuncture treatments, I had some initial relief with the acute pain that has troubled me for years. After 12 treatments, I could feel total relief from this most recent acute sciatica episode which lasted for 5 months before the acupuncture. The treatments helped me to completely relax and concentrate on pain relief that no other form of therapy ever had. By following Dr. Lisanti’s additional naturopathic suggestions the relief came even sooner then I expected. Dr. Lisanti is a gentleman and very professional. I have been recommending him to my family, friends, and neighbors. I am very thankful to find such a caring doctor.
