Chesapeake Holistic is Reopening!

We’re excited to announce Chesapeake Holistic is reopening its doors on Monday, June 15th!

We have missed our client family very much. And, we’re so happy to get back to doing what we love: helping you achieve your wellness goals.

While we’ve always taken cleanliness very seriously, we are instituting some new policies and procedures to keep you and our staff safe. These include incorporation of new guidelines from the state of Maryland, the CDC and our governing boards.

What we’ll be doing to keep you safe:

  • Practitioners and staff will wear masks and gloves (gloves will be changed between clients).
  • Disinfecting session rooms between each client.
  • Continue to change sheets on treatment tables (after each client session) AND cover exam table with fresh paper for each client.
  • All common areas and bathroom will be disinfected regularly.
  • Motion detector hand sanitizing station has been added to waiting room.
  • 24/7 use of air purifiers (in waiting room, restroom, and one for each treatment room).
  • Continuation of curbside pickup for supplements. Please call ahead to place your order.
  • Physical distancing of at least 6 feet in waiting room; 2 chairs will be placed outside.
  • Practitioners will stagger workdays, and appointment times, to limit waiting room traffic.
  • Your practitioner will check your temperature, and pulse ox, before taking you to their office.

What we need you to do:

Please call us from your car when you arrive. We’ll tell you if it is okay to enter the Center.

If there isn’t enough space to maintain physical distancing in the waiting room, we will ask you to wait in your car. We’ll notify you when you can enter (we don’t foresee this being a big problem). NO WALK INS AT THIS TIME.

Please have all of your paperwork filled out before you arrive: INCLUDING THE NEW COVID-19 DISCLAIMER. All forms can be found on our website under “Forms.”

We require you to wear a mask when entering the office. You will be asked to use the hand sanitizer upon entering as well. Again, your practitioner will take your temperature and pulse ox when you arrive.

We ask that you enter the Center alone unless you are accompanying a person who requires assistance. If someone is with you, they are welcome to sit in one of the chairs outside, or take a walk on the new trail right in front of our building.

Call 410.349.9043 to book your sessions. We can’t wait to see you here!

You can still enjoy our services from your home: Virtual Somatic Coaching

Relieve stress and anxiety

At Chesapeake Holistic, we’re continuing to work with our clients to deliver wellness services to you at home, virtually, versus in-person sessions.

Knowledge is power. Working together, we will face our challenges with an even greater peace and ease.

And, during this stressful time, self-care is especially important for your wellbeing.

To help you de-stress, Lisa is offering a very affordable service…

Virtual Somatic Coaching:

In these sessions, she’ll explore how pain, stress and anxiety impacts, and is stored in, your physical body – and how to use this awareness as a starting point for reducing the stress load for the whole family!

The session includes on-board tools, such as breathwork, visualization and movement that can significantly help to ease an overloaded fight or flight response back into rest, digest and recover.

30 min – $45
60 min – $95

Sessions can be scheduled with Lisa directly by email:, or by calling the office at 410.349.9043.

Chesapeake Holistic is open!

We’re here to help…

We would like to reassure you that we’re committed to your care. Chesapeake Holistic remains open for regular hours – to support you and your families during this ever-changing time surrounding the COVID-19 virus.

We’re getting many calls and questions about what clients can do for themselves, and how we are able to help. Here is what we are recommending…

Immune Support at Home

You can improve your immune system by:

  • Eating a healthy diet and taking out refined and processed sugars. Refined sugars decrease the activity of your immune system for hours!
  • Getting 8 hours of good sleep. Your immune system is recharged when you sleep.
  • Hydrating! Drink half of your body weight in oz. (clean water). Your lymphatic system needs fluid to circulate white blood cells.

Immune Support at Chesapeake Holistic

As always, we offer Immune Boosting support services: Nutritional Education and Health Scans, a wide variety of quality supplements, ONDAMED Immune Sessions, Craniosacral Therapy, Acupuncture, The Emotion Code, and The Body Code.

These modalities are also important for offering mental and emotional support, to relieve high levels of stress and anxiety that also have a negative impact on our immune health.

We also provide remote sessions. Jennifer and Carol offer remote Nutritional Education consultations. As well, Cathy offers remote Emotion Code and The Body Code sessions for current clients.

When you call to schedule, just let the staff know that you’re interested in a remote session and/or a phone consultation, so we can provide you with the proper paperwork and instructions.

NEW! Holistic Immunity

Many of you are asking: What else can I do to make sure my immune system is strong? To answer that, we’ve created a brand new Holistic Immunity service.

This 30-minute appointment combines Nutritional Education, supplement recommendations, and a biocommunication scan to determine the unique lifestyle and immune-boosting services that can support your specific needs. Look for the announcement, with more detail, tomorrow.

Office Policies

Cleanliness. Rest assured. We’ve always taken cleanliness very seriously and follow stringent guidelines to reduce the spread of illness and keep our space safe for everyone.

Of course, if you (or a family member) are feeling ill and need to reschedule your appointment, you will not be charged a late cancellation fee.

Rest assured…We are here to help!

Why did you put that needle there?

Where I place acupuncture needles is going to be different each time a client sees me.

For instance, if you come in with chronic headaches (just above the middle of your eyebrows) I may place acupuncture needles in your feet, actually relieving the pain… so what gives?

Think of an area of pain or illness as a traffic jam along a highway. There’s simply too much congestion, in one place, causing rising temperatures, lack of movement, and really bad air from exhausts.

Acupuncture meridians are the body’s energy pathways.

So, an acupuncturist can figure out which parts of your systems need to

be adjusted by following the body’s signals. These signals tell us where one area is limping along, while others are working too hard as a result.

This is why, during our assessment, I’ll feel the pulse on your wrist or neck, or take a peek at your tongue, before picking the acupuncture points to stimulate. This energetic assessment gives me a sense of where the flow is best directed at that time.

The approach is to choose acupuncture points away from areas in your body that are overcrowded and congested.

Using that headache as an example, our acupuncture point locations are an attempt to open up exits and secondary roads around blockages. Doing so enables the energy traffic to get moving, restoring balance and a sense of calm as well.
