The question everybody wants to know is “how does acupuncture work?.” The simplest answer is that acupuncture works by stimulating the body’s natural self-healing mechanism. This response will consequently kick-start the nervous system to release a cascade of chemicals (endorphins, hormones, immune responders). These responders then work to regain homeostasis and reduce pain in the body. Simply put, the body loves balance and acupuncture helps to restore that balance. Visit us at our Eden Prairie clinic to experience it for yourself.

Eden Prairie's Clinic For acupuncture and wellness

At Elliott Therapeutics, we use acupuncture as a tool to relieve pain, reduce inflammation, boost the immune system and to balance hormones. As a result of treatments, we frequently improve conditions like insomnia, infertility, headaches, allergies, digestive issues and of course aches and pains. If you’re not sure that acupuncture can help you, please reach out for a personal evaluation of your condition or click here to learn more.


Pain Management

Anyone living with chronic pain understands the mental and emotional toll it can have on the body. Firstly, acupuncture works to relieve pain quickly but also heals the body on a deeper level because it addresses the root cause of the pain. Certainly, drugs and surgery are not the only approach to managing chronic pain. Therefore, if you haven’t tried acupuncture, now’s the time to do so.

Sports Acupuncture

Sports Acupuncture focuses on common injuries to the musculo-skeletal system. These treatments will increase performance, relieve pain and most importantly, reduce the risk of injury. We use this style of acupuncture on professional athletes, including many Minnesota Vikings players, as well as anyone looking to become a better athlete.

Cosmetic Acupuncture

Want to looking younger without surgery or injectables? Our facial rejuvenation treatments focus on stimulating the production of collagen which in turn, reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Regular treatments, however, also enhance the overall appearance and tone of the skin. In other words, you’ll get that glow that comes from the inside out.

Women's Health

Women’s Health Acupuncture focuses on conditions ranging from menstrual disorders to fertility challenges to menopausal symptoms. For example, if you’re having trouble getting pregnant or are tired of daily hot flashes, then our treatments offer a natural way to balance your hormones.

Dry Needling

Dry Needling is a form of acupuncture that focuses on releasing trigger points, aka knots. Many people seek this out as a stand alone therapy but when it’s combined with a full acupuncture session, the results are compounded. Your muscles will begin to relax almost instantly after a dry needling session and with a few consecutive treatments you should have reduced pain levels and increased mobility. There’s no need to book a “dry needling” appointment because all appointments geared toward improving musculoskeletal problems will be focused around this style of acupuncture.
