From a Chinese Medical Perspective:

For thousands of years Chinese Medicine has acknowledged that there is a vital life force that flows through all things which is called “Qi” (pronounced “chee”). In Western culture, it is often referred to as “energy.” Energy (Qi) flows along pathways in the human body, which are related to the organs, the muscular system, and nervous system. When the balance of this energy is disturbed due to trauma, poor diet, medications, stress, hereditary conditions, environmental factors or excessive emotional issues, then pain or illness results. Acupuncture focuses on correcting these imbalances, which stimulates the body’s natural ability to heal itself. In other words, Acupuncture focuses on treating the factors that cause disease.

How many treatments are needed?

Generally, men’s health related issues, including ED, prostate issues, infertility, and premature ejaculation, respond really well to acupuncture. Most men will generally notice a difference within the first treatment. The quantity and frequency of treatments you may need are based on the severity and the duration of your symptoms.

The framework surrounding Chinese Medicine believes that every individual person is different and will respond uniquely to acupuncture, based on ones particular lifestyle, diet, exercise, work, and sleep habits. Emotional, environmental and genetic factors will also play a role and are a necessary consideration. Kate will be able to give you a better understanding of treatment planning once we have met you and gone through the initial intake.

Meghan’s first encounter with acupuncture and herbs came after years of searching for a solution to her SIBO diagnosis, a condition that compromises the small intestine and causes digestive weakness and pain. Through an integrative approach that combines herbs, acupuncture, mindfulness practice and food therapy, Meghan has found relief from the severe symptoms of SIBO and a renewed sense of health. Following the introduction of acupuncture and Chinese medicine for these digestive issues, she has since used acupuncture for musculoskeletal pain, menstrual and reproductive support, and anxiety.

Meghan has two years of clinical experience treating patients with acupuncture and herbal medicine and has had the honor of treating in a number of healthcare environments. These clinics include UMMC (children’s hospital), Pathways (a center supporting community members with life threatening or chronic physical illnesses), the Human Performance Center (a sports medicine clinic) and the Salvation Army treatment center. During this time, she has supported patients going through cancer, PTSD, digestive disorders, reproductive challenges, and pain.

Meghan is licensed with the Minnesota Board of Medical Practice and is certified through the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. She graduated summa cum laude with a master’s degree in Acupuncture and Chinese medicine from Northwestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington, MN.  Additional specialties include a license in massage therapy, certifications in Craniosacral therapy and Reiki, and doula work.
