About Agate Acupuncture
Lanna Schwab, is the owner and licensed acupuncturist of Agate Acupuncture. She is pleased that you are interested in learning more about her and her services.
Lanna loves to travel and immerse herself in other cultures and learn about the people and traditions. Lanna lived in rural South Africa while serving in the U.S. Peace Corps. While working there as a Community Health Outreach Volunteer, she discovered her passion for natural & holistic medicines. Upon returning to MN, Lanna was awarded a diversity scholarship to pursue her Masters degree program in Chinese Medicine at Northwestern Health Science University in Bloomington, MN. During that time in school, Lanna joined "Acupuncturist Without Borders" in Nepal for Disaster Relief Trauma clinics addressing the aftermath of the 2015 Earthquakes. Lanna has a huge heart and passion for diversity and the process of cross cultural education. She sees humans for being human. We are all equal parts in the human race.
Lanna believes that nature provides the best medicine, and Minnesota's north shore is a great example of that. The Lake Superior Agates offer a grounding and balancing property that attracts people from all over the Midwest. Our bodies are intricate machines that know how to heal themselves when given the necessary tools. Acupuncture assists your body to balance all the elements that maintain homeostasis. Pain and disease comes when the body is out of balance. That is what makes it a holistic medicine. Chinese Medicine works with the entire body to find the source of dis-ease, and address problems at the source, rather than just the symptoms.
Lanna spends her days hanging out and going on adventures with her little dog, Tater. They love to walk, hike, kayak, and generally just be outside together. Lanna is also a member of the North Shore Rotary Club. She enjoys giving back to the communities that have given her many opportunities.
