Here at Baby Steps we provide Fertility Health Optimisation.
We believe in supporting the body in its innate wisdom to self heal, creating a perfect homeostasis and supporting a natural system to function as intended. To do this we combine digital medical technology and natural treatments. This includes a full health analysis to find out what’s going on using innovative medical technologies where we get real time results to discuss together during the assessment and then we do up a treatment plan including acupuncture and bio-feedback therapy along with diet and lifestyle advice, to heal dysfunction and bring back balance.
You might be wondering why I’m so happy to be holding a box of roses, it’s because a box of roses is my why. Let me share the story with you.
After a few years of practicing general acupuncture I decided to give one day a week in ARC Cancer Support house volunteering as an acupuncturist.
I did this for 2 years. Usually I treated the cancer patients for the side effects of the drugs, chemo, radiology etc but this one time I treated a girl for fertility.
She was 35 and had fought breast cancer. She was 5 years in remission and had spent the previous 3 years trying to get pregnant. After 2 sessions with me she came back in the third week with a box of roses and said “I feel silly giving you such a small gift when you have given me the greatest gift in the World, I’m pregnant.”
That was the moment that I decided to go into fertility and pregnancy care.
Now I specialise in fertility, IVF support, pregnancy, prebirth, post partum care and all female health matters from menstruation to peri-menopause and menopause. I include mindfulness, nutrition, exercise and Medicinal herbs into my treatments.
So let me introduce myself. Hi, my name is Lisa Morrissey and I am an acupuncturist specialising in woman’s health.
I received my Bsc. degree in 1999 and since then went on to study in the holistic field of Acupuncture.
People often ask me how I got into acupuncture. You know I started out as a software engineer for AOL after college. I loved working out back then and one day I pushed myself too far in the gym and ended up with a hip injury.
I spent the next year spending money like it was going out of fashion trying to sort out my injury. I spent time getting intensive physio in hospital, got a few MRI scans and tried a wide variety of alternative therapy treatments, you name it and spent thousands in the process but they all only offered me temporary relief. Then I heard about acupuncture and thought I’d give it a go. * After 2 treatments my back/hip pain was 90% gone. I love reading and usually read 2 books a week, sometimes I might have 3 books on the go, depending on my mood at a particular time and so I started reading up all about this fascinating ancient medicine. When I decided to go ahead and study Traditional Chinese Medicine, I already had read about 6 text books and watched many youtube talks on it,
I knew it was for me and that I had found my calling.
This work brings me great joy on a daily basis because I get to help people change their lives and I get to see and experience the euphoric joy in a couple sharing the news with me that they are expecting a baby after a period of trying.
I also get to watch women literally transform before my eyes when they are expecting their first child and becoming mothers.
It is a beautiful thing to see the focus move from ‘me’ to ‘my baby’. From this moment on a woman becomes a mother and has something other than self in this World to put before themselves. This is a beautiful transformation to witness.
This is not a job or a career for me, it’s a passion.
I love my clients and they are so important to me.
I guarantee my full efforts to help you in every aspect of your life to gain your optimal health. I am available at any time for you and this way we get results. I love learning new things and am always improving my knowledge in the field to stay up to date with the most relevant information through courses and seminars.
I live in Dublin and enjoy hiking, yoga, music, reading and time with family and friends. I love dogs, I even acupuncture them sometimes. Above you can see my Great Dane, Wolthan and my beautiful godchild, Vivian
