Sophia is a licensed acupuncturist in Minnesota, with a background in brain health, pain management and hormonal regulation.

She seeks to work with patients to discover how to harness this relationship for control and precision in athletic pursuits and everyday life.
In the past, Sophia competed in swimming, diving and dance. However, her appreciation and passion for acupuncture came from personal tragedy. Acupuncture was crucial to her full recovery from a snowboarding accident and a life-threatening car accident from which she had to relearn how to walk, swallow and dress. She is now dedicated to helping others experience the same profound impact of acupuncture.
