Your doctor will take a health history, conduct a physical examination, determine a diagnosis and recommend a treatment plan. You might be treated with a variety of techniques and therapies to help you achieve optimal health.

Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine
Acupuncture relieves pain, restores vitality and enhances life. Acupuncture works by stimulating the body at prescribed points using sterile disposable needles no thicker than a human hair.
Acupuncturists often prescribe Chinese herbal formulas to deepen the effect of treatment and complete the healing changes that acupuncture has begun.

Nurse practitioner services
Nurse practitioner services are provided by an advanced practice registered nurse who specializes in the care of chronic or acute conditions. The nurse practitioner focuses on you as a whole patient - beyond your immediate symptoms - treating illness, counseling, and providing education to enhance your quality of life. Our nurse practitioner services are offered in collaboration with the University of Minnesota School of Nursing and the Center for Spirituality & Healing.
