Pain Management

I’ve been going to Selby Acupuncture since December 2013 to see Julie. I cannot begin to tell you what a difference she has made in my life. Not only has she helped my chronic back pain, but my overall well-being, including mental health. Julie is kind and willing to listen, and is very knowledgeable in all aspects of acupuncture. I would definitely recommend Julie to anybody who is a bit apprehensive about starting something new. – S.G.

I had been suffering from tendonitis and following a regimen prescribed by a sports orthopedist, but the pain was recurring off and on for a long period, and I decided to try acupuncture. After working with Molly for several sessions, the symptoms were gone and I was able to resume my activities without any restrictions. My experience was totally positive – she was very caring and thorough in her treatment and I would highly recommend Molly to anyone considering acupuncture. – S.L.

I can’t recommend Selby Acupuncture highly enough. My acupuncturist Ashley Steffensen is fantastic. She knows her stuff and has worked to help tailor a treatment plan specific to me that has really helped to address my chronic pain. The staff are all friendly and caring.

Lori’s massage yesterday was the perfect way to restore my energy level and quiet the joint and muscle aches that were limiting my daily activities and keeping me awake at night. I slept so well last night! First time in weeks. Thank you, Lori! – L.D.

Chronic pain increases interrupted nights; increasing jaw clenching, producing more head aches with vision issues.  My body felt contested and stuck.  Deborah’s knowledge and intuitive spirit guide her in providing the correct pathway in care.  I became so relaxed with her acupuncture treatment I was able to fall asleep. Thank you to Deborah!  – M.H.

Molly facilitated my first acupuncture experience. I had come to acupuncture after years of chronic pain and no such positive results from other modalities of medicine. Molly has always taken the time to listen to my concerns, answer all of my questions, and has helped heal the core issues that were causing my pain issues. She is a compassionate, persistent, and knowledgeable practitioner with a gentle heart. I am grateful to have met her on my journey to health and have her by my side on my road to recovery! – M.J.

I cannot say enough about my treatment at Selby Acupuncture. Katie is professional, personable and caring. She continues to help me with my arthritis pain. I would recommend this practice to others.

I very highly recommend Joanna Willis. I was receiving Physical Therapy for two months to get over some severe pain as a result of a recent surgery to no avail. Joanna Willis was recommended to me as a fantastic Acupuncturist to try instead and I couldn’t be happier with the results! She was able to relieve me of my pain after four weeks of treatments. It’s truly amazing how much better I feel and am very grateful for her skills and knowledge. She definitely exceeds expectations!

I get the best treatment for my back pain at Selby Acupuncture and have for years. The Chinese medicine that is offered always helps, too. Whenever I hear someone complain about pain, I refer them to Selby. There is no place I would rather go than here. – S.E.

I love Selby Acupuncture! I’ve been a patient on and off for the past 6 years and have always received fantastic care. All of the staff, from the front desk to the practitioners, are extremely knowledgeable, helpful, and kind. They’ve created a peaceful space that promotes healing and wellness.

Joanna is very good at listening to your problems and finding the best way to apply acupuncture to give me the best results. Since I have been seeing her, about three months now, my sleeping patterns have become regular (about 6-7 hours a night), my sciatic pain has gone form a 10 to a 4 and my sinus is relieved by the application of the needles instead of prescription drugs.
I am very please with the results I have obtained from Joanna and the relationship I have built with her. She is a very integral person who will provide advice for all your needs. I strongly recommend her for all your health needs.

Women’s Health (Menopause, PMS, Fertility)

I have been seeing Julie for about nine months to treat infertility and the anxiety and stress associated with it. Julie’s caring and compassionate spirit has been a source of comfort and strength for me, and I look forward to every treatment. After a session with Julie I feel more balanced and centered. Her willingness to combine more traditional (Western) treatments with the acupuncture treatments has been very helpful. I recommend Selby Acupuncture to anyone. – T.S. (mom to a new baby)

 I came to Selby Acupuncture after over two years of trying to conceive, and trying multiple drugs to right some out of balance hormones. I was officially diagnosed with unexplained infertility. Frustrated with not knowing what was going on with my body and not getting the answers to my questions from the medical field, I wanted a more natural approach. In my first year of working with Selby Acupuncture I learned so much about my body, hormones, and diet. After a year of regular appointments, herbs, and other lifestyle changes my hormones had righted themselves! And a few months later we conceived our first child!  I appreciate that I am always welcomed to Selby Acupuncture with a warm smile. Julie takes the time to ask questions, she pays attention to what I’m saying and my body is doing. She helps me to trouble shoot and build off the knowledge I’ve gained in my journey. She has always been sensitive to the rough emotions of the journey of infertility, which I didn’t always find to be true when working with other providers. 

I started acupuncture treatments in December after a disappointing year of failed fertility treatments (I have PCOS). I’m now a total believer. Still too early to tell if I’ve conceived, but my cycle is now regulated and I feel more relaxed, happy, and confident than I have in a very long time. Kennedy compassionately listens to and considers what I tell her about my symptoms, and adjusts her treatment accordingly. All the gold stars for Selby Acupuncture! – N.G.

I saw Molly weekly to prepare for an IVF frozen embryo transfer. She also came to my clinic to provide treatment before and after my transfer. I truly believe she made a difference in our success. She’s warm, calm, and trustworthy. Would highly recommend Molly and others practitioners at Selby Acupuncture. JN

I began seeing Julie McCormick several months ago after two miscarriages and almost two years of trying to conceive. Additionally, I had been on antidepressants and sleep meds for over fifteen years. After just a couple months of treatment (with acupuncture, herbs, and healthy lifestyle coaching), I am now free of all medications, sleep wonderfully, have excellent energy and mood, and, most important, am 8 weeks pregnant with a healthy baby! I feel so grateful to have Julie in my life! – E.L.

I’ve had a wonderful experience with my 6 months of acupuncture sessions.  Deb is caring, knowledgeable, and easy to talk to.  I have endometriosis and after about 3 months I saw a huge decrease in negative symptoms (cramps, back pain, nausea) and my cycle is much healthier.  I’m very happy with the service provided here and would recommend them!

From start to finish- Amazing. Overall, a very positive experience. Huge shout out to Dr. Katie Steffenson. Seriously, a magic worker. Their whole team is on the ball. They know their stuff! They try various techniques to fit specifically you and your journey. Send you home with various self care modalities and some Chinese herbs designed to help you be at your best. I feel extremely empowered after leaving the office. They’ve helped me find ways to help my body heal itself and to be able to continue to do so for the rest of my life. Their active listening skills make you feel heard and they always treat you with respect. I’ve seen dramatic results in my chronic back (of 10+ years) and hip pain that kept me from living my life. My energy has increased, I am sleeping better, my mood has improved, and they have even helped with getting my menses for PCOS. They specialize in women’s reproductive care, so if you are looking for a more natural way to heal and connect deeper with your body, this is a great modality to explore! Thanks Selby Acupuncture!

Everyone is really positive, caring and knowledgeable! Molly took the time to listen and figure out the best treatment for me. She was easy to talk to and the treatment itself was very relaxing. Really appreciated the follow-up e-mail after my appointment, where she said, “. . . looking forward to working with you as you build your family.” – K.R.

I have received treatment in the past during my last pregnancy from Julie, and she is absolutely wonderful. I had no issues with my second pregnancy that I did with my first. Julie was kind, thoughtful, encouraging, and simply the best. Recently I’ve been receiving treatment from Molly to help regulate my cycle and help with fatigue. She has also been incredible. She is a great listener and is also very kind, thoughtful, and the treatments have made an incredible difference in my health and energy levels. – M.B.

I have been treated at Selby Acupuncture during my last three pregnancies. The acupuncturists are amazing. Not only have my severe nausea and headaches vastly improved with their treatment, but they are kind, understanding, supportive, and professional. I was skeptical at first, but am now completely convinced! I encourage you to give them a try. – K.V.

I have been going to Selby Acupuncture for over three years. Julie has helped me though many different medical issues including menopause, insomnia, allergies, anxiety and a shoulder injury. Not only is she an amazing practitioner, she is also a very amazing person, and you feel like you are being treated by someone who genuinely cares about you!! – B.S.

Cancer Care

I am in the midst of a serious health crisis, and through a pal I was referred to Dr. Julie and Selby. I was relatively new to acupuncture. I believe the treatments are instrumental in keeping me whole during chemotherapy. This is a definite safe harbor. The work has grounded me and kept me well. As well as being trustworthy, skilled, and knowledgeable, Dr. Julie is a rare and delightful person who is able to share pertinent information easily. She is a healer. The front desk is top notch. – M.B.

Shiatsu massage from Lori has helped me sleep better, relieved pain in joints and muscles, and improved my mobility. Lori’s thoughtful questions and skilled massage is helping me deal with side effects from breast cancer medications. I feel better all over after a visit with Lori. – C.L.

I began working with Molly shortly after starting chemo to treat colon cancer. Her treatments, usually scheduled shortly after the chemical infusions, mitigated the side effects dramatically, especially the low energy and queasiness, and have helped to ease both the focal neuropathy and peripheral neuropathy. Her treatments have also helped in the healing of my surgeries. In addition to her skill, Molly’s bedside manner is both warm and competent, which allows me the room I need to relax and be comfortable and receptive to treatment. Molly is also very good at explaining what she is doing in language that I can understand. She is sensitive to my particular circumstances, and is consistently kind and respectful. I highly recommend her. – P.G.

Charles has provided exemplary care pre and post brain surgery.  He is very attentive to the emerging symptoms throughout recovery.  I highly recommend Charles. – S.C.

Digestive Health

I had my first appointment with Julie the other day and was relieved and pleased with the warmth I felt the whole way through, starting with Lindsay up front. Julie was terrific in the exam room, made me feel comfortable and hopeful that her acupuncture-based treatment plan would bring me significant relief to what’s been a long and difficult period of painful gut problems. Thanks. – B.C.

I had a recurring stomach issue last year. Julie put me on some herbs. The issues have not come back! I am so grateful for Selby Acupuncture. – N.T.

After attending five sessions, I felt less chronic pain. Within three months, I had more energy and my gastroparesis was gone. Her treatments helped my bowels, increased my libido, and made my fatigue manageable. Kennedy has done wonders for me. She is knowledgeable, professional and personable. I would recommend Kennedy to everyone. – C.B.

I suffer from celiac disease, endometriosis, and adrenal fatigue, among other minor issues like acid reflux, migraines, and back pain. Kennedy Sharp has breathed life back into me. After a few months, I’m nearly symptom-free with herbs, diet, and acupuncture. I feel like Selby is my go-to source for healing for my whole life. Thank you so much for all you do, Selby team! – S.W.

Neurological and Fatigue Issues

After 20 years in a fast paced, stressful and demanding job, I was laid off.  I was defeated and depleted of my own resources.  I turned to acupuncture with a goal of re-gaining my energy and moving forward with focus. Julie has been amazing.  The treatments made a significant difference and I would highly recommend Selby Acupuncture to anyone!

I have trouble being in my body. As a middle-aged elementary school teacher, I am constantly on the go, and easily get caught in my mind, and get depleted. Coming to Selby Acupuncture since August has increased my stamina, and helped me re-enter my body. Everyone I have seen has helped immensely! I highly recommend this clinic for anyone! – T.H.

I was a bit skeptical of the practice of acupuncture, but it is helping with my chronic fatigue! Though there is no cure for CFS, I am gradually gaining strength. The practitioners at Selby Acupuncture are very caring, good listeners, and good about explaining the process.  – S.F.

General

I ❤️ Selby Acupuncture. I have been going to Selby for about 10 years. I have had acupuncture treatments and cranial sacral therapy. I have seen almost every practitioner at Selby over the years. Each practitioner is so full of knowledge and have great ideas to help you be your best self. They have helped me literally from head to toe… migraines, stomach issues, pulled muscles, stress reduction, sleep issues, etc. Everyone at Selby is so compassionate and nice and they truly care about your wellbeing. I can’t say enough how great they are and I am so grateful for their care!

Lori provides a healing and relaxing shiatsu massage. I love that it not only feels wonderful, but it provides powerful health benefits. Lori clearly loves what she does and I feel so comfortable in her presence. Can’t wait to come back! – M.C.

Katie at Selby Edina is wonderful! I just finished up my 10 session facial rejuvenation acupuncture sessions and am very happy with the results. Highly recommend 🙂

I could not be happier with Selby Acupuncture and Deborah.  She is such a good listener with empathy and expertise.  She makes me feel comfortable and is helping so much on my path to healing.  Would not get acupuncture anywhere else. – J.N.

I’ve been to many acupuncture clinics and I really couldn’t ask for a better experience at Selby acupuncture! Both locations are wonderful 🙂

I was sent here based on a friend recommendation, and I have loved everything about my experience here. I see Molly and got a good feeling about her from the very beginning. Initially she performed a throughout intake of all my bodily issues. She is engaged in her work and she makes me feel very comfortable. She asks the right questions, and pays attention to the entirety of my body. Molly is a fun, friendly, professional person I get the pleasure of seeing every week. I love this place! – G.M.

Deb is an absolutely amazing practitioner!  My daughter has been seeing her on a regular basis for about 9 months.  Deb is compassionate, caring and detailed.  My daughter feels extremely validated and cared for and asks weekly when her next appointment is.  Highly recommend this clinic! – T.N.

I have been seeing Julie for about four years. She is an amazing healer who spends the time to really know you. I wholeheartedly recommend Julie and the entire Selby Acupuncture team. I have seen Julie for everything from migraines to the common cold and sometimes just to keep my body tuned up and working well. Beginning regular acupuncture treatments with Julie has been life enhancing and life changing. I value the treatment and the caring follow-up from Julie and everyone. – S.M.

Julie and the team at Selby Acupuncture are amazing. I have been working with Julie for two years now, and with her magic needles and Chinese herbs, she has helped me walk through some very difficult and happy times. Julie is fantastic, very caring and very skilled. Words do not express my gratitude. Lindsay at the front desk is great, too, great energy and very accommodating. I can’t say enough about how much I love this place! – E.L.

I am so pleased with the care and service I have received at Selby Acupuncture. The staff are professional, gentle, and really care about your well-being. Please do yourself a favor and check out Selby Acupuncture! They will have you feeling better in no time. – K.N.

When my body and spirit are in need of healing, Selby Acupuncture is where I go. I always walk out of there feeling better. – M.O.
