about one medicine

One Medicine Acupuncture & Apothecary is a natural and holistic health care clinic featuring hands-on healing therapies, Chinese herbs, and other modalities of Classical Chinese Medicine.  We strive to be attainable for all people and embrace patients of every shape and size, age, and of diverse ethnic, cultural and religious background.  We treat illness but pride ourselves on being champions of prevention.  We teach lifestyle skills for vitality during all stages of life.  

Located in the heart of Minneapolis, on Lake Street and Lyndale Avenue, we offer patient-oriented care for acute and chronic conditions, as well as for general wellness and stress relief.  We foster a holistic approach, considering the body, the mind, and the spirit in tandem.  We work cohesively with conventional Western medicine, and also brilliantly with other complementary and alternative options.  One medicine for all people and for all things.

We offer an array of healing modalities rooted in Oriental Medicine. Individual services and pricing vary based on practitioner.

Charlotte’s treatments are an appropriate combination of various CCM (Classical Chinese Medicine) therapies, including acupuncture, moxibustion, cupping, essential oil application, stone medicine, and Chinese herbal prescriptions.  Modalities will be tailored to the individual at the time of the visit, based on symptom presentation, the evolution of the patient's health, the body's constitution, and additional factors. As of January 2019, Charlotte is not accepting new patients, much to her dismay.

Jessica’s treatments are TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) based and incorporate Japanese-style techniques. Adjunct modalities include moxibustion, shiatsu, cupping, guasha, essential oils, flower essences, and teishin. Please scroll up or visit the home page to view options to work with Jessica.
