As a collegiate athlete, pain was an almost daily presence for Lisa.
When you ask your body to do more than it is capable of, pain is the result. As a limber, young athlete, those pains were temporary. As an active, and still competitive adult, when she does encounter pain she sees it as an indicator that the body needs help. Through that journey, Lisa found her passion as pain management acupuncturist.
Through her extensive training as an acupuncturist and experience as a lifelong athlete she has honed the skills necessary to find the root of pain, addressing the source to remove the limitation, which leaves patients pain free for years to come.
Lisa uses a combination of both Eastern and Western philosophies integrated into one treatment. This approach allows her to use western diagnostic measures to find the site of pain, identify compensation patterns, then treat with Eastern modalities like acupuncture and cupping. Finally, she returns to a global approach of teaching patients how to interrupt those patterns at home for long term results.
“Most people do not know how good their bodies are supposed to feel. Anxiety, fatigue and pain are all signals that your body is asking you for help.” Lisa Glasser, L.Ac.
Lisa created Well Balanced Center for Integrated Health on the philosophy that no one should be in pain, physically nor emotionally. Which is why a specialized team was created, to treat every ailment from depression to knee pain and everything in between while utilizing the modality that is right for you whether it be chiropractic, physical therapy, acupuncture, massage, or nutritional counseling through functional medicine.
Lisa attended the University of Wyoming where she played Div 1 basketball while completing her undergraduate degree. She then found her way to Northwestern Health Sciences University in Minneapolis, MN where she received a Masters in Acupuncture in 2006. She then made the leap to the west coast and settled in Eugene.
You will find Lisa enjoying everything that Oregon has to offer, from the coast to the mountains and everything in between. This summer of 2017, she is excited to try a new adventure of bikepacking, backpacking on a bike.
