Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine

Looking for a complimentary therapy?

Acupuncture and Oriental medicine will compliment any treatment that you are undergoing.

Acupuncture is just one of the modalities of Oriental medicine, which mostly consists of the insertion of fine needles into the body at specific points. Oriental medicine is based on treating imbalance in the body. Your body holds a memory of the treatment and builds a foundation from the first treatment to the next.

Acupuncture treats pain successfully but includes treatment for emotional or nervous system imbalances as well.

Acupuncture can treat the following disorders but is not limited to:

  • Gastrointestinal
  • Gynecology
  • Musculoskeletal Pain
  • Psychoemotional and neurological disorders
  • Ear, nose and throat disorders
  • Respiratory disorders

If you have any questions call True Care or stop in to pick up a Q&A brochure on acupuncture.

Lisa Simensen, L’AC MaOM

Lisa received her Master’s degree in Oriental Medicine in 2000 from the College of Oriental Medicine at Northwestern Health Sciences University in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Lisa held positions at the college as clinic director, clinic supervisor, associate clinic faculty and lecturer. She traveled and studied in China during that time as well. Her styles include; Auricular (ear) acupuncture, nutritional and dietary therapy for lifestyle support, cupping, electro-stim, Japanese and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). “The term “doctor” translates to “teacher,” Lisa believes, that in teaching you home health tips, recipes, and how to live a healthy lifestyle, your healing is maintained far longer.

They have been amazing!! I would recommend them to anyone!!!- Tawnya

My boys and I are treated like gold at True Care. The staff are so knowledgeable and compassionate. Laughter is always the best background noise there. It’s clean, comfortable and very inviting. The receptionist is so cheerful and her coffee and hot chocolate are the best. – Pamela Howell

I’ve been going to Truecare for over 4 years. My connective tissue diagnosis has gone from bad to worse but this place has kept me going. The owner Ida does myofascial release therapy on my whole body. There isn’t any place that she can’t fix, even my bunion. I get body therapy and the moral support in how to eat and feel better for my disease. I work at Bois forte tribal clinic and my recommendations for Truecare don’t stop. There isn’t a place like this around. I feel like part of the family when I enter the doors. From the hot tea offered to the exercises and stretches I’m advised to do at home to help my pain. -Paula Barnes

This place ROCKS! So gifted people, offering more services than one could ask for. Plus: friendly service as well! LOVE THIS PLACE! Anyone needing PT, OT, Myofascial Therapy, or even acupuncture…. CHECK IT OUT! -L.T.
