Plans are to open Flourish Acupuncture Center, Little Falls Monday, Feb. 4. Owner Shana Grams holds a master’s degree in acupuncture from Northwestern Health Sciences University located in Bloomington.
Her interest in acupuncture came from having health issues and not getting the help she needed. She went to an acupuncturist and within a few minutes she said, “They told me what was wrong. I knew then that I wanted to learn what they knew.”
It took her three years to complete what is usually a four year course. “We went for three consecutive years with seven staggered weeks off during each year,” she said.
Acupuncture is a form of medical treatment that has evolved into a complete holistic health care system.
Grams received her degree in August 2012, and has been treating patients for two years.
Clients have a choice of tools used during the acupuncture treatment some of which include: hair thin needles, magnetic therapy, ear beads, tuning fork, cupping, etc.
Grams is married to Dr. Ben Grams who is associated with HealthSource Chiropractic in Little Falls. As a couple, the two are avid kayaking enthusiasts. She also enjoys cooking, reading, movies and art
Flourish Acupuncture Center will be open Monday through Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. by appointment. The business is located at 104 Kidder St. S.
During the month of February, Grams will offer free consults and exams by appointment. For more information, Grams can be contacted at (320) 583-0093.
