A Warm Winter’s Welcome to Modern Point Blog


acupuncture near minnetonka, MNThis is the introductory blog for Modern Point Acupuncture and Sports Medicine.  In it I am going to introduce our practice to you and give you some winter health strategies.

Modern Point has three acupuncturists- Lindsay Long, Sara Bublitz, and me, Josh Eha.  We are all licensed acupuncturists (L.Ac.), which means we have graduated from 3-4 post grad years of Chinese medicine and are licensed by the state of Minnesota to practice acupuncture.  Lindsay Long and I have also been certified after an additional year and a half of study in Sports Medicine Acupuncture– hence the “Sports Medicine” at the end of our business title.  Sara Bublitz focuses on Women’s Health and Cosmetic Acupuncture and is a great complement to our style.  She and I were trained on the west coast, at PCOM and OCOM respectively.  You may check out our bios for more information.

We are all passionate about acupuncture and Chinese medicine and how we can use it to best treat our patients.  The human body is varied and complex.  One tool does not work for every patient.  I have found through over a decade of treating patients that having a number of options for each case leads to better outcomes.  We draw from unique styles based in San Diego, Portland, Minnesota, Boston, and throughout China and Taiwan.  So we can draw from a variety of approaches and confer on our most difficult patients to improve our results.  It is also a lot of fun learning about the myriad ways to practice our art from different parts of the country.  It keeps us engaged as students as well as clinicians, allowing the “beginners mind” to nurture our growth.

Today is Halloween, and temperatures are beginning to drop.  As the flora and fauna prepare for winter we should do the same.  Responding to the change of season preserves health and adds harmony to our endeavors.  We now shift to more internal, contemplative activities.  Reading, studying, meditation, and mindfulness take the place of the chaotic yang activities of the summer.  (Maybe that is why I finally got around to blogging.) Our food should be cooked longer and include more warming spices, like cinnamon, ginger, anise, peppers, cloves and fennel.  If salads are eaten, they should be paired with a hot beverage.  The digestion, ruled by the Spleen in Chinese medicine, loves warmth, and is stressed by cold.  Our joints normally dislike cold as well and benefit from the enhanced circulation of many of these spices.

So, when you are exploring the corn mazes around Maple Grove and Plymouth, readying for the freeze on Lake Minnetonka, take in a good book or start a new meditation practice, spice up your food and drink some hot tea, and join us in the clinic if your body still is not cooperating.

In health,

Josh Eha, L.Ac.


Meet Our Practitioners:

I love this place! I saw Nicky and she truly feels for her patients. She is wonderful at what she does and makes it a great comfortable and peaceful place. She has helped me so much! I highly recommend her!

My experience with Modern Point Acupuncture has been outstanding.  I was treated by Nicky.  She has a warm and fun personality as well as a vast amount of knowledge.  Her passion for what she does is refreshing since I have been to many other acupuncturists where it is lacking. She truly wants to get to the root of the problem and get you pain relief.  I came to her with a severe antibiotic resistant sinus infection accompanied by chronic migraines.  After one session the pain went down drastically in my face and the migraines were improved.  After about two months of one or two appointments/week the migraines and sinus issues were gone and I was off all medications.  I would highly recommend anyone to her (Nicky), she is amazing at her craft.  Finding Modern Point Acupuncture has been such a blessing!

"I have horrible allergies and have tried acupuncture a little in the past but in the past the acupuncture was performed by a chiropractor. I went to see Lindsay once and then signed up for 10 sessions. It is amazing what acupuncture can do. My favorite is that it totally relaxes you and then you notice things during your day that it has helped with. Lindsay is extremely knowledgable and I have learned so much. It is amazing how certain parts of the body are tied to your eyes, brain, etc. If you have any type of issue go see Lindsay. She is great."

"Adam is the best! Not only is he awesome at what he does, he seems to be a genuinely nice human. He took the time to learn about my embarrassing condition and try to gear my treatment towards that. He was excited to learn about something he didn't know existed, and I very much appreciated that. I'd highly recommend seeing him! Thanks Adam!"
