Modern Acupuncture™ takes a new approach to an ancient healing practice. “We would like acupuncture to be an accessible, approachable and affordable wellness practice for everyday life,” said Sandra Brown, co-owner, along with her husband Dick Brown, of the Minnetonka Modern Acupuncture™ location. “The World Health Organization recognizes 28 diseases effectively treated with acupuncture and 60 more conditions being studied. Plus, it is a safe and effective alternative to opioid narcotics in the treatment of pain.”

Distal acupuncture allows clinicians to pinpoint and effectively treat concerns via specific points on your head, face, arms, hands, lower legs and feet all while patients relax in luxurious recliners and take a breather from the day’s stressors.

An Ancient Practice for the Modern Individual

Acupuncture has been used for more than 2,500 years to successfully treat a host of conditions. It decreases inflammation and increases blood flow, which helps alleviate chronic pain of all kinds: headaches, joint pain, muscle pain, and more.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does it hurt?

Generally, acupuncture is not painful, but may produce some kind of sensation at the site of needling.

Worried about needles?

Acupuncture needles are extremely thin, smaller than a single piece of hair.

Where do you needle?

This varies on the ailment. We use distal needling, which focuses on points that are at the periphery of one’s limbs and not necessarily at the site of the pain. This is a highly effective method and allows our practitioners to utilize the most accessible parts of the body.

What about clothing?

We treat only areas on the body that do not require the removal of any clothing, yet access full body health.

Do I need an appointment?

Walk-ins are highly encouraged! You can also call and book your visit appointment.

Our sessions are extremely affordable. As a result, we do not accept or require insurance.
