Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine
Meghan Forrest is an experienced acupuncturist with a passion for holistic living. She listens deeply and thinks creatively to help each patient rediscover balance and their own internal healing power. Her healing tools include acupuncture, cupping, tui na orthopedic massage, herbs, and nutrition/dietary therapy. Meghan also draws upon extensive training in Western allopathic and naturopathic medicine to create an appropriate, holistic treatment plan for each patient.
Meghan holds licenses from the Minnesota State Medical Board and certified by the National Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM). She received her Master of Acupuncture degree from Northwestern Health Sciences University.
Before pursuing her acupuncture degree, Meghan instructed experiential wilderness courses for Outward Bound. During her ten years as wilderness educator, Meghan witnessed too many people limited from living their fullest life due to chronic pain and/or illness. Dietary changes and acupuncture helped her recover from her own struggles with chronic digestive illness, women’s health issues, and pain from chronic injuries. This experience helps Meghan relate with patients and fuels her commitment to finding effective, individualized treatment plans.
Beyond natural medicine, Meghan enjoys outdoor recreation, gardening, keeping honeybees, and spending time with her husband and two children.
