Welcome to Olson Acupuncture Group. We have been serving the St. Croix Valley since 2005 by helping people find relief from common and complex health challenges through traditional Chinese medicine and dietary therapy.

The human body is healthy when it is balanced, when its organs function in harmony with one another, and when the energy within the body flows properly.

Traditional Chinese Medicine sees pain and illness as expressions of an imbalance within the body’s system of energy. Patients are diagnosed and treated in relation to the whole body. By doing this, we can facilitate the healing of illness, the prevention of further disease, and the maintenance of further health.

Because of our WHOLE body approach, we concentrate on dietary therapy and nutrition. Without the right nutrition the body will struggle to heal. We discuss and guide patients to identify and modify stressors in the diet, including sensitivities and deficiencies that may be limiting the ability to heal and regain optimal functioning.

Our services include:


Amy Olson, LAc – Senior Acupuncturist

Tuesday & Wednesday 9 – 6
Thursday 10 – 6
Friday 9:30 – 5

Amy’s healing journey began when she sought natural treatment for her own health concerns with depression, fatigue, and digestive issues. She began learning about different healing modalities but found acupuncture and nutrition to be the most powerful and effective for healing her health. This led her to go to acupuncture school in 1999 at the American Academy of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. Through this education she knew she had found her calling. In 2005 she founded Olson Acupuncture Group in Stillwater and has enjoyed treating her patients for the past 14 years.

As a lifelong learner she then went on to study Nutrition Response Testing™ to offer treatment that would allow her to give a highly individualized nutrition plan that would be specific to each person. Her knowledge of nutrition, body systems, and organs allow her to treat her patients’ WHOLE body. She holds a strong belief in food as medicine and is able to coach her patients to wellness with her kind and gentle guidance. Amy is the only Advanced Clinical Practitioner of Nutrition Response Testing™, in the St. Croix River Valley.

Amy also holds a Master of Business Communications from the University of St. Thomas and a Health and Wellness Counseling Certificate from St. Catherine University. She lives in the valley and often bikes to work when she can. She loves to travel, cook, and spend time with family, friends, and her adorable cat, Crimicha.

Patricia Henning

My name is Patricia Henning. I was born and raised in this beautiful town and I can’t imagine being anywhere else. I’ve worked in various customer service positions, but found a passion in alternative healthcare while working for my chiropractor. This also was my introduction to the Standard Process supplements along with learning the difference and importance of correct nutrition. What followed was the most important and fulfilling role of my life – being my parent’s caregiver. This enabled them to live out their remaining years in the home they so lovingly built and raised our family. Not knowing next where the path would lead me, it was through an amazing chain of connections that guided me to Amy’s acupuncture clinic. It is because of Amy’s caring, sensitive nature and holistic approach that brought me to work in this healing environment. It is truly a blessing.

Jeanne Carlson

My name is Jeanne Carlson. I live in Stillwater with my husband, Randy and have an adult son and daughter in the area. I worked as an elementary school teacher in Stillwater District 834 at Lily Lake Elementary and Lake Elmo Elementary. I retired from full time teaching after I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2011. I decided at that time I needed to concentrate on my health and reduce some of the stress. Shortly after my surgery, I was introduced to acupuncture at the Olson Acupuncture Group. I was struggling with many side affects of my treatment and acupuncture opened a whole new way to manage the symptoms. The genuine care and concern for my well being at the clinic made me feel that I was truly in the right place. I was at the clinic weekly and sometimes daily during the course of my treatment. The acupuncture treatments helped me manage the side affects and helped my immune system  remain stronger. The support of Amy Olson and her staff was a true gift. Both the physical treatment and emotional support were so significant in my recovery. In February of 2015, Amy asked me if I would be interested in working part time at the clinic. I was excited to accept the offer and am enjoying the positive and caring environment that the clinic offers. It is my hope that I can reach out to others and offer them the kind if support, care and hope that I was given in my journey.
