To schedule with Meghan, click here: ForrestAcu

Meghan Forrest is an experienced acupuncturist with a passion for holistic living. Meghan listens deeply and thinks creatively to help each patient rediscover balance and their own internal healing power. Her healing tools include acupuncture, cupping, tui na orthopedic massage, herbs, and nutrition/dietary therapy. Meghan also draws upon extensive training in Western allopathic and naturopathic medicine to create an appropriate and holistic treatment plan for each patient.

Meghan is licensed by the Minnesota State Medical Board and certified by the National Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM). Meghan graduated summa cum laude from Northwestern Health Sciences University. Her apprenticeship experiences included the Courage Center, VOA geriatric care, the Pillsbury House Community Clinic, and the Edith Davis Teaching Clinic.

Before going to graduate school, Meghan instructed experiential wilderness courses for Outward Bound. During her ten years as wilderness educator, Meghan witnessed too many people limited from living their fullest life due to chronic pain and/or illness. Dietary changes and acupuncture helped her recover from her own struggles with chronic digestive illness and pain from chronic injuries. This experience helps Meghan relate with patients and fuels her commitment to finding effective, individualized treatment plans.

Beyond natural medicine, Meghan enjoys outdoor recreation, gardening, keeping honeybees, and spending time with her beloved husband and daughter.

Personal Optimization

As a lifelong martial artist and spiritual truth-seeker, I’ve been researching and self-experimenting in hopes of attaining enlightenment. Of the 20 plus years I’ve been involved martial arts and my spiritual awakening, I’ve unlocked mysteries and discovered many shortcuts to my path and the paths of others.

Public Embodiment

For 10 years now, I’ve been publicly demonstrating my ability to embody the theory. Where others attempt to persuade through words, theory, and academia, I demonstrate those theories and then explain them later. To me, embodiment demonstrates a deeper understanding that very few can grasp.
