Adam Hein L.Ac., M.Om., Dipl. Ac.
Adam has long been interested in working in health care, spending a great deal of time working in nursing homes, home health care, and physical therapy offices before achieving his Masters of Oriental Medicine from Northwestern Health Sciences University. Having an undergraduate degree in Kinesiology and Psychology, he found that acupuncture helped bridge the gap between the body and mind. He believes strongly that no person should have to live, work, or play with discomfort. He values educating his patients with the steps that they can take to improve their health.
Adam’s focus is on pain relief and injury recovery. He is particularly interested in the treatment of athletes and helping them limit the amount of injuries that they sustain and enhance recover as quickly as possible. The need for a quick recovery is not unique to athletes and we all have our aches and pains, even desk workers and weekend warriors. No matter the source of the pain, Adam wants it to be completely resolved and not merely lessened or covered up for the short term.
Adam is a NCCAOM certified and Minnesota State licensed acupuncturist. While at Northwestern he completed various clinical internships including at the Courage Center working with traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries, and at Fairview Hospital managing postoperative pain.
He enjoys using his free time to work on and around his home, taking long walks and bike rides around the city, and attending sporting events. He lives in Minneapolis with his partner Melissa, their sons Otis and Clarence, and their newfoundland Boris.
