ST. PAUL ACUPUNCTURE SERVICES
Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years to gently heal the body using its own natural wisdom. Points are chosen based on each individual’s patterns of imbalance to relieve pain, boost the metabolism, regulate hormones, improve moods, benefit sleep, and increase energy. As the body comes back to its natural state of harmony, this health and well-being can be maintained more easily.

We perform Cosmetic Acupuncture to help you look and feel younger and improve overall health. Typically, we use a 10 treatment package with treatments twice a week for 5 weeks. In addition, we give recommendations for skin care, nutrition, and herbal formulas to achieve and maintain optimal results. Depending on your area of focus, you may choose the face, neck, or abdominal protocol. Since we are also doing an overall acupuncture treatment at the same time, general health including digestion, sleep, energy, and moods will also improve. For accelerated results, we recommend using the Mei Zen Cosmetics skin care products as well. After the initial protocol package, a monthly maintenance treatment is recommended.
Acupuncture for Children
We perform pediatric acupuncture on children as young as 6 months using special tiny needles that we affectionately call our “baby needles”. Since young bodies are so adaptive, the needles can be removed immediately after insertion and most children don’t even feel them. Young children commonly watch with fascination and have no fear of the needles. The most common response we hear from parents is that their children ask when they can come back for acupuncture. Children experience the calmness of mind and body from acupuncture and want to come back for more. Common issues we treat children for include allergies, frequent colds or ear infections, attention issues, sleep problems, emotional issues, sensory disorders, and acute pain from car accidents.
Ear acupuncture, or auriculotherapy, uses acupuncture points on the ears to affect all different parts of the body. It can be used as a treatment on its own (especially when treating addiction, weight loss, or PTSD) or in conjunction with full body acupuncture treatments.
