Nation’s fastest growing health and wellness franchise brings accessible and affordable acupuncture to Minnetonka.

"Modern Acupuncture is a 30 minute treatment in a spa-like environment. While acupuncture has always been around here, it hasn’t always been this accessible and affordable. We look forward to bringing the natural healing of acupuncture to as any people as possible. ”

Modern Acupuncture™, the first franchise to make the natural health and cosmetic benefits of acupuncture available to people in an accessible and affordable delivery, is now available in Minnetonka, Minn. This clinic marks the first location to open in Minnesota, and the 42nd in the nation.

Modern Acupuncture offers affordable memberships encouraging guests to add acupuncture to their regular health and wellness routines. There are two service plans provided, one for traditional acupuncture, and the other for cosmetic acupuncture. Depending on the treatment plan, options for additional sessions start as low as $30. Single walk-in sessions are also available.

In celebration of its opening, Modern Acupuncture will offer free initial treatments and grand opening specials on unlimited acupuncture plans through the month of March.

“I developed arthritis 25 years ago and sought out acupuncture for relief,” said Sandra Brown, Modern Acupuncture regional developer in Minnesota. “The disease is painful and has required me to have several joint replacements over the years. I began using acupuncture as an alternative to pain relief and immediately noticed a huge difference. I eventually drifted away from treatment because of the environment and time needed for treatments, until I came across Modern Acupuncture. Modern Acupuncture is a 30 minute treatment in a spa-like environment. While acupuncture has always been around here, it hasn’t always been this accessible and affordable. We look forward to bringing the natural healing of acupuncture to as any people as possible. ”

Modern Acupuncture offers an enhanced acupuncture experience where unlike traditional acupuncture treatments, it does not require the removal of any clothing to access full-body health. Tiny needles (the size of a human hair) are carefully inserted into key points on the body to trigger an increase in blood flow to blocked or weak areas. When healthy blood flow is restored, the body’s natural healing abilities are activated, sending the body back into balance. Cosmetic acupuncture is no-tox beauty approach to anti-aging, acne, and an overall glow. A visit to Modern Acupuncture feels like a relaxing retreat, where guests can unwind and possibly even fall asleep all while experiencing the healing and/or cosmetic benefits of acupuncture. Sessions are typically 30 minutes or less, and walk-ins are welcome.

Upon entering Modern Acupuncture, guests are greeted by simplistic yet contemporary decor with calming colors and natural wood elements that create a spa-like environment, sending them into an instant state of tranquility. After a customized consultation with a Modern Acupuncture Zen Advisor, guests are taken back to the Zen Den, the treatment area outfitted with soundproof insulation, lounge-style recliners, glowing lanterns, peaceful music, and TV screens display stunning scenery from around the world, ensuring a multi-sensory experience while traditional or cosmetic acupuncture services are delivered. Guests leave with a customized treatment plan and a complimentary handcrafted organic tea blend.

“I experienced acupuncture for the first time for a painful shoulder injury,” said Dick Brown, Sandra’s husband and co-regional developer in Minnesota. “Two treatments, roughly two weeks apart, put me on the road to recovery. It was amazing to me that they treated my right shoulder with a needle as thin as a hair in my left foot.”

Acupuncture is administered by acupuncturists who have been certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM®) after completing a three-year masters degree from an accredited school. They are further trained in the specific method used at Modern Acupuncture by Robert Doane, EAMP, L.AC., DIPL., C.H., co-founder at Modern Acupuncture and world-renowned acupuncturist and educator.

The Minnetonka Clinic is located at 4733 County Road 101 inside Westwind Plaza. The location is open Monday - Friday from 10 a.m. - 7 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. For more information, or to book an appointment, visit
