Growing up with a massage therapist mom, a naturalist dad, and a circle of wise women family friends, Kim has felt drawn to the world of healing arts since her youth. It was a health crisis with Lyme Disease and tick-borne illness in her mid-twenties, however, that drew her in further. Through an integrative combination of therapies, lifestyle changes, and spiritual exploration, Kim found relief, hope, deeper self-intuition, and a path forward — and was inspired to support others in finding the same.

Kim’s personal healing journey and her clinical experience have cemented her belief in the power of integrative medicine to support the whole self — body, mind, and spirit — in achieving long-lasting wellness and deep transformation. She supports patients with a wide range of concerns, including complex and chronic conditions, Lyme Disease, anxiety and depression, digestion, pain, and reproductive and sexual health. Kim strives to help patients of all ages feel empowered and aware of their intrinsic self-healing potential and intuition. As a queer-identified person herself, Kim is dedicated to providing affirming, whole-person care to queer and trans folx.

Kim 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 2015. After graduation, she completed a 6-month Pediatric Integrative Health Fellowship at University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital, and went on to study in Zhengzhou, China in the areas of pain, oncology, pediatrics, and tui na massage. Currently, Kim is completing an advanced practice clinical Doctor of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine program through the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine, with specialities in complex and chronic illness, internal medicine, and gynecology. She has been published in the journal Medical Acupuncture.

In addition to degree programs, Kim has received certifications in Health & Wellness Coaching, Reiki, Pranic Healing, Cosmetic Acupuncture, and has completed advanced study in LGBTQ+ health care, Lyme Disease, and needle-free treatment approaches.

When she’s not at the clinic, she loves making magic in the kitchen, traveling, exploring nature, and hanging out with other people’s pets.

I have worked extensively with Kim Christensen, having received acupuncture, cupping, moxibustion, and Chinese herbal therapy, and I cannot recommend her services highly enough. Kim is more than an acupuncturist, and provided a great deal of encouragement and support as I navigated some complex health challenges.

I can’t explain how thankful I am to have found Kim. Living with chronic illness is grueling but seeing Kim has lightened the burden. Not only is she a brilliant practitioner but she is a kind listener, generous healer, and hilarious person. While I may never be cured, I am living with less pain, more hope, and better sleep since I started seeing Kim.
