Amy Kuretsky

L.Ac., M.OM., Dipl.OM.

Acupuncture, Herbs, Breathwork, Coaching, Tarot, Energy Medicine

Specialties: Digestive disorders including IBD and IBS, headaches and migraines, anxiety and complex emotional conditions

Amy's life drastically changed when she began incorporating acupuncture, herbs, and mindfulness to her daily life to help manage the symptoms of Crohn's Disease - an autoimmune disease that had been dominating her life for over five years. Within a few short months, she was able to stop her expensive pharmaceutical treatment and has now been living medication-free since 2011. This experience shaped her interest in treating the overlap between digestive and emotional wellness and she looks forward to bringing this knowledge to Constellation Acupuncture & Healing Arts.

Outside of clinical practice, Amy is passionate about helping creative entrepreneurs find their own personal brand of balance in order to stay sane and healthy. She does this through her group coaching workshops, intuitive tarot readings, wellness retreats for creative business owners, and sharing her knowledge and experience on her podcast, Health Fuels Hustle. Her love of working with creative professionals struggling with anxiety stemmed from her own experience keeping her head above water as she built up her previous, bustling, solo acupuncture practice.

Amy is licensed with the Minnesota Board of Medical Practice and is certified through the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. She graduated summa cum laude with a Masters degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from Northwestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington, MN in 2013.  She studied abroad in Tianjin, China in the areas of stroke rehab, pain and pediatrics.  Continuing her studies, Amy has received certifications in Cosmetic Acupuncture, Breathwork, Reiki, Health Coaching, and has done advanced studies for digestive related conditions. 

What started as preventive care for chronic digestive issues has evolved over several years to a complete health and wellness practice, helping me manage stress and anxiety, pregnancy and postpartum, and ongoing inflammation. Amy has become an invaluable resource and support system, changing and empowering me throughout my health journey.

I desperately reached out to Amy a few months back when my chronic symptoms became unmanageable. I was tired of traditional Western doctors who simply wrote off my symptoms and sent me on my way with a lousy prescription. I’m in my 20s and live a healthy and active lifestyle and was eager for someone to evaluate these factors - as well as my symptoms - in a holistic way. My first appointment with Amy was as mentally rewarding as it was physically. It was refreshing to have someone interested in all my symptoms! I went to Constellation thinking I was only signing up for acupuncture but was pleasantly surprised how much the cupping helped in addition to acupuncture. The first time I had cupping done I left more relaxed and calm than I had been in months. It was really something else. Amy has also educated me on supplements, herbs, diet and exercise and how these are all equally important pieces of self-care. I’ve become more in-tune with what my body needs on a given day, knowing that one day is likely different than the next. The mix of Amy’s magic and self-care education has helped reduce my headaches and get my GI back on track. The best part - it wasn’t with any prescriptions!
