Dr. Lisa Lapwing has been specializing in Men’s Sexual Health since 2012. Through her experience, studies and continued dedication to treating conditions that fall under this subject, she found that there is little about it being taught. It is touched on briefly in some acupuncture schools and there are few continuing education courses for it. Seeing the need to further education fellow Acupuncturists and Oriental Medical practitioners in this important subject, her teaching career has begun to build over the last 5 years. She has taught on the subject of erectile dysfunction specifically, at AOMA where she is an alumni and most recently for her local FSOMA chapter. She has also spoken on dyspareunia and chronic pelvic pain at a conference for SUNA (The Society of Urologic Nurses and Associates) in October of 2020. Currently, she is running her own practice of 10 years, Whole Health Acupuncture, through Indigo Spa at 13790 Bridgewater Crossings, #1120 in Windermere, FL, 34786. She is always available for questions or consultation at 708-707-0383 or [email protected]
