Welcome to Tree of Life Therapeutic Massage & Spa, located in Plymouth, MN,
your premier destination for acupuncture & fire cupping in Plymouth, Minnesota.


Acupuncture  controls pain and improves functioning by inserting thin needles through the skin at specific points on the body.

Acupuncture improves the body’s functions and promotes the natural self-healing process by stimulating specific anatomic sites–commonly referred to as acupuncture points, or acupressure points.

Acupuncture treats the human body as a whole that involves several “systems of
function” that are in some cases loosely associated with (but not identified on a one-to-one basis with) physical organs.

With Many  years of clinical experience using more than 400 points on the body have shown the effectiveness of this healing modality.

In 1997, the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) documented and publicized acupuncture’s safety and efficacy for treating a wide range of conditions.

Dry Needling vs Acupuncture

Dry Needling is a technique of inserting a few filiform needles into a trigger point area or the area of a knot.  Dry Needling helps to relieve any spasm or muscle pain as well as release the knots in the muscles. Dry Needling is a great treatment for sports injury recovery.

Acupuncture is the practice of inserting needles at specific points to stimulate nerves and release endorphins, which are the body’s natural painkillers. Acupuncture is excellent for relieving pain and tension in muscles.

So the difference between Dry Needling and Acupuncture is while Dry Needling is designed to address the body’s muscle system by relieving muscle tension through activation of the trigger point, Acupuncture is intended to treat the nervous system by interacting with nerve endings, releasing endorphins which in turn relieves pain and tension in muscles. Acupuncture is not limited to treating muscle pain only, but treats many more conditions

What Our Customers Are Saying

Don’t just take it from us, let our customers do the talking!

I have had migraines since I was a teenager. I’ve tried everything, medications, biofeedback, physical therapy, nothing helped long term, until I started having Acupuncture near me.  I went from two
headaches a week to two headaches a month. And the relief started after
the third session. I can enjoy my life again!

So happy there is a place I can go for Acupuncture near me.


I have had issues with my hip for over three years. My doctor always sent me to physical therapy and only ever got a little relief. That is until I started going to TREE OF LIFE. The massage was amazing! I had been going for almost a year when my therapist suggested that I also do  acupuncture near me. Between these two wonderful people I can say I feel the best I’ve felt in years!!! Highly recommend both of them. It has been the best treatment option for me!


I began seeing Rachel during my infertility journey, specifically post egg retrieval and leading up to my embryo transfer. During the course of our sessions, she paid careful attention to which stage of the process I was in and talked me through where she would be placing the needles all while explaining the benefits. I found this very soothing and truly looked forward to each session as I was able to fully relax during a very stressful time in my life. I am excited to report that I am now entering my second trimester and am so grateful to have had this wonderful acupuncture experience to help me get and stay pregnant. I am a true believer and would highly recommend Rachel and Tree of Life to anyone trying to navigate infertility.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does acupuncture work?

Most commonly, inserting thin, sterile needles into the skin is used to stimulate acupoints. Pressure, heat, or electrical stimulation may also be used. Acupuncture therapy can stimulate the function of the body’s natural healing response through various physiological systems. Modern research has demonstrated acupuncture’s effects on the nervous system, endocrine and immune systems, cardiovascular system, and digestive system. Whether they work through increasing circulation, stimulating nerves, or releasing endorphins, centuries of experience have shown how powerful acupuncture is for healing the body.

Is acupuncture safe?

Yes, acupuncture is safe when performed by a licensed and trained acupuncturist. At Tree of Life Therapeutic Massage & Spa, our acupuncturists are certified and licensed by the state of Minnesota.

Does acupuncture hurt?

Acupuncture needles are much thinner than what are used for shots and blood draws, about the thickness of a human hair. Because of this, the sensation of inserting the needles is mild and almost negligible once they are in. Normal reactions to needling include redness in the area, a sensation of heat/cold, feeling of heaviness, or an electric “Zinger”.

How long does an acupuncture session last?

Acupuncture sessions typically last between 30-60 minutes, depending on your individual needs and treatment plan.

How many acupuncture sessions will I need?

The number of acupuncture sessions you’ll need depends on the condition being treated, its severity, and how long you’ve had it. Our acupuncturists will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan based on your individual needs.

What's the difference between Dry needling vs. Acupuncture?

Dry Needling is designed to address the body’s muscle system by relieving muscle tension through activation of the trigger point, Acupuncture is intended to treat the nervous system by interacting with nerve endings, releasing endorphins which in turn relieves pain and tension in muscles. Acupuncture is not limited to treating muscle pain only, but treats many more conditions
