* Weight Loss
* Quit Smoking
* Pain Relief

* Reducing Stress
Acupuncture for Weight Control
The first step to losing weight is always the most difficult one. It is easy for you to get off track or fall back into old eating habits if you don’t have the proper care or education to turn your life around. At our Minneapolis clinic Complete Oriental Medical Care we use acupuncture and Chinese medicine to reduce your cravings, allow your body to take in less fat from the food you eat, help you feel fuller more quickly and ease the frustration and anxiety that can trigger overeating.
Acupuncture As A Christmas Gift Certificate
- Holiday Stress
This is an easy one. With all of the stress that comes along with the holidays, who wouldn’t be grateful for a little R&R, compliments of you, to get the New Year started off right? Minneapolis brings with it harsh winters and being able to de-stress after living like mice in the walkways for months is an especially welcomed treat. Acupuncture will calm the nerves and bring out the zen.
Low Libido? Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Has the Answer
Loss of libido is not something everybody talks about. But it’s something that many think about how to solve. So you thought acupuncture was just to relieve pain? Think again!
In ancient times, the best Chinese doctors were assigned to the Emperor. The emphasis was never just pain management but how to make him live longer and healthier. His doctors were expected to make him virile because he wanted many children, mostly sons. And his many concubines were expected to bear him children.

If you are suffering from back pain you know how much it can impact your everyday life. Simple tasks such as driving to work or taking a simple stroll through your neighborhood quickly become excruciatingly painful tasks that no one should have to deal with.
What many people don’t know is that lower back pain is often caused by pressure or strain on the sciatic nerve. This nerve runs from the lower back down through the pelvis and leg to the foot. When it is irritated it causes severe tightness in the lower back and pain through one or both of the legs.
Did I scare you?
Maybe not, but I do have a scary thought to share…
Halloween marks the beginning of this year’s holiday season. It is, as I’m sure you know, a great time of year to share in festivities with friends and family. It can also be a very stressful time – for exactly the same reason. So, here is the scary thought: imagine if you had to suffer through this whole season of activities in pain or discomfort. That sounds like a nightmare!
Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine Day is celebrated on October 24. This national day brings light to the healing powers of acupuncture and its role in contemporary alternative medicine today.
Traditional Chinese Medicine has effectively been treating people who suffer from physical and emotional pain for thousands of years. Our 20 year track record of helping people in the Minneapolis area overcome debilitating pain or chronic disease/discomfort is second to none.

Have you ever have a pain in your butt that radiated down your leg that drove you nuts? Yep, that’s sciatic pain. It can even be difficult to get comfortable with that pain always around.
Sciatic pain is felt when there is unnecessary pressure placed on the sciatic nerve, which runs from the lower back down through the butt and legs. The reason behind the pressure on the nerves can be due to a pulled muscle, slipped disc, degenerative spinal condition or very rarely, a tumor.
