Bonnie West, L.Ac.



Nationally Board Certified (NCCAOM)


My education includes a MS degree from the American Academy of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. This 4-year degree program combines the study of acupuncture and herbal medicine. Additionally I am certified in Mei Zen Cosmetic acupuncture and have completed the Graduate Mentorship program with Sharon Weizenbaum of the White Pines Healing Institute, Amherst, MA.

Additional education includes a BA Degree from Macalester College and an MBA from St. Thomas University.

In Minnesota, acupuncture is regulated by the Minnesota Board of Medical Practice. To obtain an acupuncture license each practitioner must complete a graduate program at an accredited university and pass the national board exam given by NCCAOM. Continuing education is required for license renewal.
