OVER 15 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE
I am a licensed acupuncturist through the MN board of medicine, and certified through the National Certification Commission of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. I graduated from the American Academy of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, in Roseville MN, and have been successfully practicing acupuncture and Chinese medicine for over 15 years. Experiencing my first acupuncture treatment changed my life and opened up my personal healing in new and dramatic ways. I also have an extensive history utilizing and learning subtle energy-based healing modalities, including reiki. These energy healing methods work on many levels and bring a deep sense of relaxation, well-being and connection to self. In addition, I have worked extensively in mental health over the years and have been interested in integrative and holistic methods of psychological healing for many years.
Before studying acupuncture, I became a certified shiatsu practitioner, learning the anatomy of the body and the wonderful benefits of Japanese massage therapy. I continually appreciate and learn from the spiritual teachings of Buddhism, Taoism and Shamanism which, along with Asian healing practices, have helped me find good health and wholeness on many levels. When I'm not in the clinic I enjoy hiking in nature, being near water, playing piano, and painting the occasional water-color. I believe healing is always possible, but may not always look as our minds expect it to. Be open to what can happen; it might be better than expected!

Finding Ingrid as my energy healer has been a blessing for my life. Working with her has not only helped me immensely on my path to self-discovery, but it has also helped in my physical healing process. I went to Ingrid for acupuncture and Reiki, and I felt immediate and ongoing relief for a health issue. Ingrid has helped me on so many levels! She is not only a great listener that cares but she also addresses my concerns in a very reassuring way.
