Jenn is a wonderfully talented health professional. I could not believe the benefits of acupuncture. Thanks Jenn.Steven G
I came to Jennifer Winer because I had been suffering with terrible pain from Plantar Fasciitis. I had been suffering for about 7 months and nothing was helping. I work on my feet and was becoming frantic that the pain was never going to end. I had tried everything, including another acupuncture therapist. Because of Jennifer's care, I am now pain free. She knew exactly what to do and even estimated correctly about how long it would take.I am so grateful! Thank you Jennifer!Sara P
Jennifer's experience and knowledge has been instrumental during my treatments! She has taught me what lifestyle choices are (or aren't) beneficial for a healthy, more enjoyable life. Her determination for all to feel well comes through in her work and dedication to me as a client. Jennifer was able to help me identify what worked or didn't work for me and was sure she understood where my struggles were. She is supportive, encouraging, and truly cares about her patients.Christina O
Case: Daniel, 20 year-old male Chief Complaint: Stomach flu "I started feeling bad at 2:30am and was vomiting every hour on the hour from that point. I called my mom to please pick me up, and she made an appointment with Jennifer that afternoon. I couldn't keep anything down, not even water. I threw up twice on the way home and on the way to her office, but once I had my treatment, I felt 80% better just walking out of the office, and an hour later I was drinking water and eating toast with no trouble. I felt so much better, it was amazing!"Daniel
Case: Andrea, 45 year-old female Chief Complaint: Recovery from Accident "After suffering from a severe fall, I was feeling pain from my head down to my toes. I suffered from a stiff neck, bruised tailbone and a sprained back. I didn't like the feeling of the pain medication I was given and was searching for relief. Treatments with Jennifer provided reduced swelling, soreness and stiffness. After my treatment, I felt like I was able to move and bend more freely like the healing process had begun. I would not hesitate to recommend Jennifer Winer as a highly knowledgeable and caring acupuncturist."Andrea
Case: Monte, 10 year-old male Chief Complaint: Strep throat "Last year I had strep throat about five times within 5 to 6 months. It never went away. We couldn't figure out why I kept getting it. My mom asked me if I wanted to go to see Jennifer Winer, her acupuncturist. I was kind of scared of the needles. I thought they would hurt really bad (like a shot). The first time I went I found out the needles weren't so bad. After I went for a few times I realized that I was feeling better. I haven't had strep throat for almost a whole year. Jennifer also helped reduce the heat in my body. I was always very hot. I always had to wear a t-shirt or I would start to sweat. Plus - Jennifer is very nicMonte
Case: Rita, 55 year-old female Chief Complaint: Chronic headaches, arthritis in thumb joints, and fibromyalgia "My headaches, arthritis, and fibromyalgia hindered my ability to do Pastel Art and Acrylic Painting that I love so much. I was not getting any better using traditional medicine. Jennifer Winer offered an alternative treatment with acupuncture. I am happy to say I am free of migraines, and have full use of my thumbs without having to use medication or cortisone shots. My fibromyalgia symptoms are easier to deal with minus the migraines. Thanks to Jennifer Winer, I have more energy and am able to resume my "Natures Critters" Pet Portraits etc. that I love so much."Rita
Case: Jessi, 20 year-old female Chief complaint: sinus pain/common cold symptoms Occupation: Massage Therapist "For the last two weeks, I have had cold symptoms such as sore throat, stuffy head, and sinus pain. I have also had left and right shoulder pain at onset of the cold symptoms. My cold symptoms subsided within one day of having one acupuncture treatment from Jennifer. The left and right shoulder pain also subsided. I feel I have more energy now to help others feel better too."Jessi
Case: Megan, 25 year-old female Chief Complaint: Acne "After being treated by a dermatologist for acne, I realized I didn't want to be chained to antibiotics for the rest of my life. Jennifer Winer offered an alternative, more natural treatment to taking prescriptions that I felt were unnecessary. Not only did I have clearer skin with the treatment, but as I learned through Jennifer, I was also eliminating excess heat in my body, getting more energy and sleeping better. I would recommend her treatments to anyone looking for a choice in treating acne that doesn't involve dependence on medication."Megan
Jennifer really listens to you and tries to get to the root cause of your concerns. I notice that I feel more relaxed and balanced after having acupuncture. I recommend her!Karin M
It works! I met Jennifer in April 2016 - I was suffering from a horrible migraine that was putting me over the edge. My migraines has become chronic and unbearable to the point of missing work for the past few years. Traditional Dr;s would just give me a pill or shot and send me on my way. Jennifer was so kind and sat with me for an hour to discuss my overall health. I had never had a Dr do this with me! She was trusting and willing to work with me to help me understand my body and what was happening to it. It's been one year and I've had one migraine since seeing Jennifer. I'm healthier and feel great!!!T.E.
I see Jennifer for weekly acupuncture sessions and she’s awesome! She is very knowledgeable about her craft, kind and compassionate. I highly recommend Jennifer to anyone looking to try acupuncture for any reason!J.F.
Everybody thinks that they know about acupuncture... Jennifer KNOWS acupuncture!T.J.
I thoroughly believe in the efficacy of acupuncture after experiencing the benefits myself. Jen is a fantastic listener and practitioner.L.F.
Wow I can't say enough about Jennifer And get practice! As a personal trainer, I am a little skeptical of new things but Jennifer is professional and explains the ins and outs of everything! I would recommend her to anyone! She has helped with my energy and performance in the gym! Thank you Jennifer for your knowledge and insight!J.E.
Jennifer is wonderful at her craft. She has used needles on me, but The most helpful thing she has done is introduced me to "cupping" which has helped my back in more ways than any medication. She also has a great understanding of Western medicine which I think is very important if you take any prescription medications and you want to explore herbs or tinctures along with your acupuncture experience. For anybody who is curious to try acupuncture Jenifer is the person to go see!R.P.
Jennifer is very professional and makes getting acupuncture painless! I went to Winer Acupuncture throughout my pregnancy with my daughter. It really helped to relieve my stress and make for a more comfortable pregnancy. I highly recommend Winer AcupunctureA.L.
I had never been to an acupuncturist before. Jennifer was very professional and was interested in more of my well-being than most of my primary care physicians. Jennifer also practices Chinese medicine and was able to tell me where certain symptoms were stemming from and how to change them. Thanks Winer Acupuncture! I learned so much in my first session with her that I made life-style changes to benefit my health.C.O.
Jen Winer with Winer Acupuncture is fantastic and I highly recommend it to anyone looking to help with pain, injuries, health maintenance or other ailments. Jen is one of the smartest people I have met and her knowledge for her craft is unmatched. Don't be afraid of acupuncture (and if you are then use her for her other services) and go with Winer Acupuncture.B.T.
I went to Jennifer when we were trying to get pregnant with our first and not succeeding. As part of a larger treatment approach, my weekly sessions with Jennifer helped us get pregnant. I continued my visits throughout my pregnancy to take care of the aches and pains that you get with pregnancy. Finally, as 40 weeks approached, and my son felt ever more comfortable in my womb, and the threat of a medical induction of labor was looming, I went to Jennifer to help more naturally induce the labor. It worked like a charm, and I went into labor myself after several treatments. I also went to Jennifer during my second pregnancy. I highly recommend her expertise.Irina S
Most practitioners in Acupuncture are practitioners in Traditional Chinese Medicine. In addition to Acupuncture, they may also incorporate several other therapies.

I offer all of these therapies at Winer Acupuncture Inc.5
If you have been in an Auto Accident or have experienced a Acute injury here are some things about Acupuncture to keep in mind.
Absolutely. Infact, I encourage it. Please contact me if you or your physician have specific questions.
A Licensed Acupuncturist has 3-4 year (1500-2000) hours of acupuncture training. Typically a Certified Practitioner has less then 300 hours of training or has only taken 1-2 classes on Acupuncture. I am a Licensed Acupuncturist, licensed by the State of MN Board of Medical Practice.2
No. Acupuncture works whether or not you think it will. Acupuncture is even used successfully on animals and children. They do not understand or believe in the process, yet they get better anyway. A positive attitude helps with any type of therapy, but it is not necessary to believe in acupuncture (or to feel it working) for it to work.3
In 1996, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) removed the experimental status tag on acupuncture needles. The FDA reclassified acupuncture needles, regulating them as medical devices such as surgical scalpels and hypodermic syringes. Acupuncture needles must now be manufactured according to single-use standards of sterility.1
Absolutely Not.There is no medication. The needles work by themselves.
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine Theory, the reason for pain, disease or other medical problems in the body is the blockage or Qi or Vital Energy in our Energy pathways (meridians) within our body. Our body has over 2000 acupuncture points (on these meridians) where the needles can be inserted, in order to unblock this Qi. This flow of Qi, helps the body become balanced again.
In Western Medicine terms Acupuncture does the following for our body:
No. Various studies have been done to support Acupuncture. A study worth mentioning here is the MRI research (May 28th, 2013, http://www.healthcmi.com/Acupuncture-Continuing-Education-News/764-mrilr4st44) concludes that needling acupuncture points causes specific brain patterns associated with the treatment of specific diseases. Investigators compared two acupuncture points on the foot with a nearby sham acupuncture point. They discovered that the true acupuncture points consistently elicited specific brain responses in regions associated with their Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) medical indications and functions for therapeutic effects.3
