Dr. Brianna (Bri) Loftus, L.Ac., DTCM, MS(O)M
Certified Peristeam Facilitator
Certified Massage Therapist
Bri received her B.A. in History and Anthropology from the University of Minnesota, where she explored her interests in art, medical history, and anatomy. She went on to earn her Masters of Science in Acupuncture and East Asian Medicine in Minnesota, and a Doctorate of Traditional Chinese Medicine from Five Branches University in California. Bri is a NCCAOM Board Certified Acupuncturist and is licensed by the Minnesota Board of Medical Practice.
With 16 years of experience as a massage therapist under her belt, and over 4000 hours of acupuncture and East Asian herbal training, Bri has unique insight into the working of the human body and diverse approaches to assist healing. She has extensive experience in helping patients with pain,
insomnia, and post-surgical support. She believes in improving health care, and educating patients in life long self-care practices.
Bri is especially interested in menstrual health and regulation for life-long health, TMJ, autoimmune conditions, Lyme disease and Post-treatment Lyme Disease Syndrome (PTLDS), and anxiety. A passionate problem-solver and researcher, she continually strives to learn more about her patients and their environment, and to use this information to improve their treatment and outcomes.
Outside of the clinic, Bri spends time reading voraciously, napping in the sun with her two French bulldogs, and visiting craft breweries in the Twin Cities with her partner. She dabbles in bouldering and loves hiking in mountains, but is terrified of heights. Bri loves to travel and seeks learning experiences with acupuncture practitioners when abroad.
