About Katie

Katie Steffensen

Acupuncturist, L.Ac.

"I believe Traditional Chinese Medicine provides a beautiful and common-sense framework that anyone can learn to incorporate into their modern, busy lifestyle."

Katie is a licensed acupuncturist by the State of Minnesota Medical Board. She is board certified in Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. She received her Bachelors in Health Sciences and her Master’s degree in Acupuncture and East Asian medicine from Bastyr University in Seattle, WA.

Katie specializes in modern acupuncture techniques for muscular conditions, sports injuries, and acute or chronic pain. She believes in an integrated approach to patient care where Western medicine and Eastern medicine should meet and function together, and regards emotional and spiritual wellbeing, sleep, and nutrition as important factors in general healing processes of the body. Her scope of practice includes traditional Chinese acupuncture, trigger/motor points, cold laser, cupping, gua sha/dermal friction massage, Chinese herbs, whole foods nutrition, and supplements.

“In my spare time, I enjoy bouldering, weightlifting, mountaineering, meditation, and mycology. I lives in Minneapolis with my partner Christopher, and two cats Wolfy and Clover.” — Katie
