Mankato Acupuncture Clinic is the private practice of Stephanie Hylla. She is licensed by the Minnesota Board of Medical Practice, and is a National Board Certified Diplomate in Acupuncture by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM). Stephanie graduated with a Masters Degree in Acupuncture from the Minnesota College of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine at Northwestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington, MN, and received her undergraduate degree from the College of St. Benedict in her hometown of St. Joseph, MN. In the spring of 2011, Stephanie traveled to China and completed a Certificate of Study at Tianjin University of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
During her graduate work, Stephanie trained in Minneapolis, MN at the Courage Center treating stroke, spinal cord and traumatic brain injuries, as well as The Aliveness Project treating persons living with HIV/AIDS. Stephanie also had considerable training in treating alcohol and drug addictions at the Salvation Army, Minneapolis Harbor Lights.
She became curious about acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine at a very young age but didn’t experience it until her fourth pregnancy left her with excruciating low back pain. Once she discovered that acupuncture could relieve her pain by 50-75%, she was convinced this was the path she needed to take.
Stephanie is very passionate about what Traditional Chinese Medicine has to offer and has a wonderful desire to educate the public in how it can complement any level of health care treatment. It is her mission to show how both Eastern and Western Medicines can work together to fulfill the common goal of giving people the best healthcare options they deserve.
Stephanie serves as the President of the Alumni Board of Directors for the Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine program at Northwestern Health Sciences University.
You Really Don’t Have Anything to Lose! Just the Pain!
“My name is Juli and I’m 50 years old. I received a postcard from Mankato Acupuncture Clinic in January 2012 announcing her Open House. I couldn’t go that evening but it gave me the push I needed to call for an appointment.
I was having a lot of shoulder pain and wasn’t sleeping at night. Stephanie made me feel very comfortable. After we visited a bit I had no fear to move forward to have her needle me. Stephanie is an awesome listener and tries to address any and all issues you have going on. Being needled is NOT painful. In fact, it is so relaxing that if you don’t take a nap, that would be unusual.
Not only did my shoulder pain disappear, but many, many, many other aches and pains and medical issues improved. I’ve also had Chron’s for 38 years and acupuncture helps me stay in remission. I have never felt this good in my 38 years with this disease! Six years ago my knees were so bad it hurt to bend, exercise, bike or kneel. It really put a hamper on my active lifestyle. I was even recommended to have surgery but because of acupuncture, I didn’t need to have that. I run, bike, do yoga, garden and am very active. If my knees start to hurt, I see Stephanie and am good to go again.
I would recommend Stephanie Hylla and acupuncture for whatever ails you. You really don’t have anything to lose! Just the pain!”
