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.

He values educating his patients with the steps that they can take to improve their health.

He believes strongly that no person should have to live, work, or play with discomfort.

Adam’s focus is on pain relief and injury recovery.

He is particularly interested in the treatment of athletes and helping them limit the number of injuries that they sustain and enhance recovery 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 an 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.

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!"
