Meet Elizabeth

Elizabeth Williams has been practicing Traditional Chinese Medicine since 2010. In addition to seeing patients in private practice, she teaches and supervises acupuncture students at Northwestern Health Sciences University and Courage Kenney Transitional Rehabilitation Program. 

While Elizabeth treats a wide range of disorders, she has a passion for treating stress and emotional disorders, including depression, anxiety, migraines, digestive complaints, and insomnia. She also enjoys helping women heal gynecological issues, including fertility, polycystic ovarian syndrome, dysmenorrhea, and difficulties during menopause. She believes that a collaborative approach and empowerment through education are essential foundations of any healing process.

“My own experiences as a patient of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) inspired me to change careers, and study acupuncture and herbal medicine.  Acupuncture and herbal treatments not only resolved my long-standing digestive issues, but increased my energy, and improved my mood and quality of sleep.

“The beauty of TCM is its ability to work alone or with other forms of medicine.  With acupuncture, chemotherapy patients have decreased nausea and anxiety, stroke patients experience faster rates of recovery, symptoms of menopause are lessened, migraine headaches become less severe and frequent, and may resolve completely.  This is only a small sample of the conditions treatable through TCM.  If you would like to see the full list, please see the World Health Organization (WHO) report on Acupuncture.”

Elizabeth is licensed in acupuncture by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM), and certified by the Minnesota Board of Medical Practice.  She earned her Masters of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from the Minnesota College of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, at Northwestern Health Sciences University.  She received her Bachelor’s of Science in Psychology from the University of Iowa.
