Lindsey Sisson, L.Ac.

Acupuncturist located in Portsmouth, NH

I am a board certified Diplomat of Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine by the NCCAOM, and licensed in Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine in New Hampshire and Massachusetts. I am also certified in auriculotherapy by the Auriculotherapy Certification Institute (ACI) and have advanced training in the Mai Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture system.

I received a Bachelor of Social Work from the University of New Hampshire and Master of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (MAOM) from New England School of Acupuncture. I also received an Advanced Masters Level Certificate in Pain Research Education and Policy from Tufts University School of Medicine. 

I first became interested in Acupuncture after traveling through China and living in Vietnam. After seeing the powerful effects firsthand I enrolled in school when I arrived back home. Understanding the body in a completely different way was transforming, and I am excited every day to share that with my patients.  What drew me initially to this medicine is the strong foundation of TCM theory, and the complex way that it looks at the body. I love that this is a science andan art. With a background in social work the ability of Acupuncture to treat both the physical and emotional within one discipline solidified my decision to make this my lifelong career. I have a strong interest in treating pain, women’s health concerns, and psychological complaints.

I know for many Acupuncture is a new experience, and a mystifying one. I feel honored to practice this medicine and to be able to form trusting relationships with my patients. I truly enjoy helping patients understand how we look at the body, and helping them understanding their health. Witnessing the amazement at the results of treatment is the most rewarding part of my job.

When I am not at the office I enjoy spending time with my husband and two young children. I love cooking, travel, yoga and anything outside.
