About

Lisa C. Smith is the founder and owner of Health Offerings, Inc. located in Richmond, Virginia. A general practioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine style acupuncture (TCM), Lisa uses Chinese & Western Herbology as well as diet and food therapy in her acupuncture practice. With more than 22 years of clinical experience, Lisa has one of the longest held acupuncture licenses in Virginia, granted by the Commonwealth of Virginia Board of Medicine (1998), and is a Diplomate of the National Council of Colleges of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM). She received her Masters of Oriental Medicine from the International Institute of Chinese Medicine in Santa Fe, New Mexico (1998), and is licensed in Virginia, Oregon, and New Mexico.

Lisa developed an interest in natural approaches to her own health care while in college when she consulted a naturopath who relieved her debilitating migraines with acupuncture and herbal care. She then worked and apprenticed for 5 years at her naturopath’s office, before she decided to attend acupuncture school. After studying with herbalist Michael Moore in Albuquerque, NM, and finishing acupuncture school in Santa Fe, NM, Lisa practiced at a cancer care clinic in Oregon for 3 years while maintaining a private practice in Ashland, OR. In 2001, Lisa moved back to Richmond, and opened Health Offerings, Inc., where she has worked to restore harmony and balance to her patients’ health. The name of her private practice came as an inspiration from a dream one morning.

Lisa’s intention as a healer is to educate her patients and their families and healthcare providers about the body’s innate intelligence which guides us naturally into our own inner balance. Lisa often provides integrative pain treatment to patients using Physical Therapy, Myofacial Therapy, and Orthopedic/Osteopathic/Chiropractic care. She works by word of mouth and professional referral and has enjoyed 16 years of private acupuncture practice in Richmond.

Lisa is widely versed in treating conditions of: oncology care, palliative pain treatments, pre & post surgical care, fertility & obstetrics, anxiety & stress management, allergies, migraine, autoimmune disorders, neuro-muscular conditions, respiratory health, circulatory & cardiovascular conditions, digestive disorders, and wellness care. Lisa likes to work with women, men and children alike. She is extremely familiar with pregnancy care as she used acupuncture and herbal care throughout her entire pregnancy in 2004-5. Having had a child, Lisa is comfortable with pediatric care as well, and refers to herself as a “general practioner” of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Her other lifelong passions are her family and raising her daughter, Tibetan Buddhist Philosophy, swimming, kayaking, art history, organic gardening, travel, and learning more about medicine in general.


Testimonials

I am convinced that Lisa Smith is a medical intuitive! Listening and then pinpointing the root of my condition or ailment seems to come effortlessly to her. Lisa is hands down the best medical professional I have experienced in both the Western and Eastern medical arenas. She is truly a gem of an acupuncturist and herbalist within the Richmond community. – J.L.

About six months ago I went to Lisa Smith for acupuncture. I have had a chronic sore hip problem most of my life which had only gotten worse as I got older. After only two treatments my hip problem was gone. I was totally amazed and encouraged by her wisdom, professionalism and kindness. I highly recommend her services. – D.F.

Lisa Smith is one of my favorite healers on the planet. She was the first person who discovered that I had cancer, and stood by my side throughout the entire process of identifying and working with additional medical practitioners throughout my surgery and recovery. She is a gifted and intuitive healer; and has the right balance of humor, gentleness, and a fierce commitment to facilitate the healing in her clients. I always feel like I am giving someone a gift when I recommend her to someone.  – L.L.

I have been a client of Lisa Smith’s for well over 8 years.  I originally started coming for her to help me get through menopause with all the “HOT” flashes, etc. but she has helped me in so many other ways too. Sinus, circulation, aches and pains. List could go on, but one thing I know for sure –  I plan on acupuncture for the rest of my life!!!  – P.R.C.

Lisa has helped me as well as my family through a number of health crises. Initially I came to Lisa with pain in my side accompanied by urinary frequency, urgency and discomfort. Western trained physicians had sent me for many tests and prescribed expensive medications, all ineffective. I had gone from doctor to doctor with no relief. None of them were able to diagnose or treat my condition. Some even implied I needed to see a psychiatrist. I was tired, frustrated, fearful, exhausted and in pain from an unknown source.  I initially went to Lisa not knowing what to expect since all of my other avenues were exhausted. At least I knew she could help me with the pain. Lisa was very soothing and professional. The very first thing I noticed about her was that she listened to me. Lisa made sense of the myriad of my symptoms and connected them all together somehow. Many MD’s listen casually, choosing one symptom to treat and leaving all the others to chance. Lisa took notes on what I said and asked questions that would be relevant to her treatment. Yes there were needles but the discomfort was rather like having a hangnail.  I was treated with compassion and skill. I felt better from the first treatment!! How refreshing to be heard and validated!! Today I am healthy and comfortable. Lisa is a gifted healer!! – J.C.

I have been working with Lisa Smith for many years and love this woman’s work. Her insights are powerful, on-target, and deeply resonant with my own internal guidance. She is a compassionate and intuitive healer. Lisa combines her high level skills as an acupuncturist with a deep spiritual wisdom, from direct experience. I thoroughly enjoy Lisa as a person and respect her skills as an acupuncturist.  – A.L.

Lisa Smith is a true and gifted healer and I am so grateful to be able to work with her. She is very thorough and holistic in her approach and she offers an expanded way of addressing any imbalances. I have undergone so many wonderful shifts since I started working with Lisa and I leave each session in a state of bliss. – L.C.
