Lisa Piediscalzi, L.Ac., RCST ®, IBCLC
After growing up in the Midwest, I moved to Santa Cruz to study alternative medicine, obtaining a Master’s Degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine from Five Branches University. Since 1994 I have worked in private practice as a licensed acupuncturist, adding complementary modalities to my skill set over the years. In 2006, I completed a 700-hour foundational training in Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (CST), and have subsequently participated in several hundred hours of trainings focussed specifically on CST treatment of newborns and infants. In 2010 I became credentialed as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), and currently hold a position as a lactation consultant at Good Samaritan Hospital in Los Gatos.
When working with families, I draw upon my knowledge of alternative medicine, craniosacral therapy, and lactation to create an integrative treatment plan that addresses each patient’s unique needs. I personally believe that I have the best job in the world, and am deeply honored to support families during their tender postpartum years.
I live in Santa Cruz with my husband and two teenaged boys, and in my free time enjoy biking, running and, most recently, Zumba. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you might have about the services I offer.
