Acupuncture is the Traditional Chinese Medicine practice of inserting hair-thin needles into Acupuncture Points to create a healing response in the body.
Acupuncture is offered at Up Yoga in South Minneapolis and serves patients from the Greater Twin Cities area.
What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a healing practice of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), in which hair-thin needles are inserted into Acupuncture Points to create a healing response in the body. Despite being 3000 years old, Acupuncture continues to work beautifully in modern times and has been validated by many studies, including the WHO, NIH, and NCCIH.
How does Acupuncture work?
Hair-thin needles are insereted in to the skin along pathways called Meridians into specific Points that have been chosen for their function and how they impact the body and flow of Qi, which is our vital life force Energy.
What makes Aculove treatments more effective?
Pulse-Balancing biofeedback! By feeling your Pulse repeatedly during the treatment, Libby can feel where energy flow in restricted in your Meridians, organs and body, which reveals the underlying cause of the symptoms you are experiencing.
Libby inserts a needle into a Point that “should” shift that energy. She re-checks the Pulse for biofeedback - IF the energy feels in-balance, she moves on. IF the signature has not shifted, she uses more Points or energy balancing techniques until balance occurs. Once all the energy signatures in your Pulse have shifted, the Pulse feels like a beautiful sine wave.
Aculove integrates Pulse-Balancing Biofeedback, bodywork or cranial work, and Bio-Light therapies into every session for efficient and incredible results.

Aculove is an Out-of-Network Provider. If your insurance covers out-of-network Acupuncture, you pay out of pocket, I provide you with a receipt/superbill to submit, and your insurance will reimburse you for a set percentage of a set amount of treatments.
While Aculove services absolutely work for smoking cessation and addiction, oftentimes people need treatment multiple times per week, especially at the beginning.
Community Acupuncture offers the most cost effective options for patients needing treatments several times per week, including sliding scale options. Google "community acupuncture near me" for locations.
Qi is our vital life-force energy that is the underlying current of health and vitality. TCM believes Qi is omnipresent thru our entire body, runs through Meridians and can be directed by Points.
Acupuncture Meridians are an intricate system of energetic pathways that interconnect our entire body. If the Meridians are open, energy can easily move and flow. However like the highways drive on, if there are blockages or congestion, energy cannot get to its destination. "Where there is flow there is ease, where there is congestion there is dis-ease" is a guiding principle of TCM theory.
