Bonnie Hering – “If you are looking for a dedicated and nurturing acupuncturist, Shane Berquist comes highly recommended by me. He champions at addressing your concerns and encouraging open communication through every step of treatment. I recently had a couple of visits with him to treat a recurring neck issue that had flared up. When I arrived to see Shane I could not even look over my shoulder, but by the time I left I had increased mobility and less... Read more »
Michael Klein – “I am a 32 year old male who came to Shane Berquist, L.Ac. in April of 2014 with chronic pain and weakness of my right shoulder. The condition developed 8 months prior from unknown reasons. I had pain in my shoulder that I rated 4/10 (10 being the worst pain he has ever had) that I experienced about 50% of the day. The pain was a nagging achy pain that was aggravated with shoulder movements. My shoulder... Read more »

Joal McAlister, Oakdale, MN – “Initially when I saw Shane I was hoping he could help with my hives. After a few sessions I noticed several additional health benefits such as better digestion and better sleep. Having experienced frozen shoulder several months before and continuing to have issues with it, I asked Shane to work on my shoulder and it’s better now than it has been in over 10 months. As a runner, I experience tight muscles regularly, Shane also... Read more »
Acupuncture and the nervous system
Local nerves within ill tissues gather information about the chemistry and activities of ill tissue, then sends that information to the brain. The brain then finds the healing solution, sends nerve impulses that direct and coordinate chemistry and activity to return the ill tissue to a healthy balance. An object penetrating through the skin into the body, is seen as a crisis by the body. By needling the ill tissues, this stimulates the local nerves to increase information about the ill tissue to the brain, and increases the brains healing responses sent back to the tissue.
Allergies, Runny Nose, Itchy Eyes, Sinus Congestion.
Acupuncture has been shown to reduce these symptoms of allergies really well, frequently clearing the sinuses within 1 day of a treatment.
Acupuncture is the Oldest study and practice of Functional Neurology.
Dating back to over 250 BC, the ancient Chinese were exploring Acupuncture, which is a stimulant to the nervous system. They observed how needling affects the local area of needle placement and distal areas from the needle placement, including soft tissues and internal organs. They created maps of influences. When needling certain areas, other certain areas of the body are influenced and certain internal organs are influenced. These ancient maps correlate with modern understanding of neurological anatomy and connective tissue anatomy.

Here’s how it works:
Nothing is supposed to penetrate the skin.
When something does penetrate the skin, the sensory nerves send a message to the brain like an alarm.
The brain responds by directing and coordinating healing activities to the needled area!
