About Lisa Hanfileti, LAc

Lisa Hanfileti, LAc

Life has given us new challenges to face. And that's okay! Because if we're facing them, that means we are still here to learn, help one another and keep sharing that vital spark that lives in each one of us. Can you relate?

After Peter retired in 2020 I kept Points of Origin open through 2023 and then I also decided to stop practicing. It was a tough decision but  I was lucky to have a skills in helping my colleagues with their websites andonline marketing so I turned my attention to building a different kind of business. 

I'm still very much connected to health and healing and continue to provide support to former patients (a.k.a. Points of Origin "Alumni")!smiley 

My Boring Yet Revealing Resume

N.B. (remember Latin? Haha...) I just wanted to get your attention so I could apologize for the formality of this Resume section. It's all legit and everything but it's written in 3rd person, which feels strange. But maybe it's so you can read it to your friends. Like this for instance, "hey I found this fun acupuncturist! Her name is Lisa Hanfileti and...." read it to your friends from there. Okay, I know it's a stretch! Here's a better option, skip down to the "From Acupuncture Skeptic To Believer and Beyond" page and read THAT to your friends! It's more exciting and so much more revealing.  Either way... I'm here for you! Enjoy! frown
