Guy Odishaw, owner of Bhakti Wellness Center in Edina, announces the addition of Acupuncturist and Doctor of Chinese Medicine, Roy Yuan, to their team of practitioners. Yuan has practiced acupuncture and Chinese medicine since 1993 when he obtained his bachelor’s degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine in Jiangxi Province, China. He then gained his doctoral degree from the Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine in 2000. He was trained at the Longhua Hospital and is a current faculty member at American Academy of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, teaching both the master’s and doctor’s program for reproductive diseases and oncology.

Yuan’s specialty expertise includes cancer care, musculoskeletal disorders, mental health disorders, infertility, digestive disorders, and eye disease such as macular degeneration. For chronic pain patients, he uses a combination of special techniques such as jumping acupuncture which makes most patients feel improvement after the first visit.

For macular degeneration, he uses points in the neck, hand and foot (not in the eye), a protocol developed by Dr. Ren Zhang, the president of Shanghai Society of Acupuncture, an internationally recognized acupuncture expert in ophthalmology. In the weeks to come, he will also combine the AcuNova protocol, a type of acupuncture treatment that is showing remarkable results for people with eye diseases.

For the month of November, Bhakti is offering special one-time Meet the Doctor offers, including six visits for macular regeneration clients for just $180, a savings of $130; and 10 visits for private acupuncture clients for just $600, a savings of $150 off regular pricing.

Location: 7550 France Ave. S., Ste. 220, Edina. For more information, call 612-859-7709 or visit
