Marcia is a Licensed Acupuncturist with a master's degree in Oriental Medicine, which means that, when necessary, she integrates acupuncture with custom herbal formulas to complement and strengthen the treatment. These herbal formulas can be used for common and complex problems and are powerful, effective options for people who are looking for safe natural alternatives to drugs or for those that cannot tolerate the side effects of drugs.
Marcia became interested in Chinese medical theory when, as a designer, she began incorporating elements of feng shui into her home design. When energy in a space flows well and is conducive to the task of that space it is also a much more enjoyable room in which to be. As her interest in physical space evolved to include the healing influence of energy in the body her journey into Chinese medicine began.
Marcia says, "I’ve always felt that being heard is extremely healing for people. It is very soothing to me personally to just be with people and to listen to them. Add to that a really effective, tried-and-true system of medicine that treats the whole person and the potential for healing and wellness grows immeasurably. Finally, I love a good puzzle. That is how I practice. We work together, bringing together my healing medicine and your concern and vision for your health.”
Marcia's experience covers many areas including women’s health, acute and chronic pain, digestive concerns, and more. She has undergone specialized training in pain and rehabilitation at the Courage Center and in using acupuncture to enhance outcomes and quality of life during cancer treatment through the Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York.
Marcia is happy to do a free 15-minute consultation by phone or in person. “If you’ve never had acupuncture, it’s probably not what you think. It is calming, it doesn’t hurt, and people often fall asleep during a session - I encourage that. If you have any questions, please feel free to call and ask.”
Marcia serves on the board of the Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine Association of Minnesota, and was president in 2012. She lives in Prior Lake with her husband. They have five grown children living throughout the world with their spouses and children - two in the Twin Cities area, two in Hawaii, and one in New Zealand, Whenever possible, Marcia and her husband spend holidays traveling.
Marcia is available for both therapeutic acupuncture sessions and cosmetic acupuncture sessions.

Denise Lewis, a native Minnesotan, earned her Masters in Oriental Medicine in 2005 at the Minnesota College of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. She is certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) and is licensed through the Minnesota Board of Medical Practice. Her journey toward becoming a provider of health and healing services began with a career as a Family Medicine physician; as she approached mid-life burnout, her patients were telling her stories of their healing experiences with acupuncture. She made the decision to study this traditional medicine as she continued her conventional medicine practice. As she learned the foundations of Traditional Chinese Medicine, she felt she had come home to the medicine she had always wanted to practice: holistic, honoring the body’s own capacity for healing, natural support of that process, and an appreciation of the unique needs of each individual seeking health and healing. Although Denise’s medical license is no longer active, she approaches her practice of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine grounded in the base of knowledge from conventional medicine. She offers acupuncture, cupping, herbal consultation, nutrition counseling, meditation and guided imagery, and auricular acupuncture, and treats a broad range of conditions including pain syndromes, fertility support, menstrual issues, menopause symptoms, digestive disorders, respiratory conditions, sleep disorders, anxiety, and depression. Denise also completed the Green Lotus 200-hour yoga teacher training program and is enjoying exploring the intersections between Chinese Medicine principles and yogic philosophy and practice. Denise has two adult daughters and enjoys gardening, cross-country skiing, and Gopher football.
