Heidi Bruner, LAc, MAc (Licensed Acupuncturist)

Heidi has spent much of her life studying cultures and the degree of health inherent in each. Observing different world views of "wholeness" lead her to study Chinese Medicine. In 2008 she began pursuing her Master of Acupuncture degree at the National College of Natural Medicine in Portland, OR.  While there she fell in love with the modalities of acupuncture, fascial manipulation, and meridian therapy, and became adept in the overall balancing of the body's condition.  Heidi is a Licensed Acupuncturist in the great state of Alaska and with the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM).  She moved to Anchorage the day after graduating from NCNM, eager to reside in this land of mountains and snow!  She is passionate about the outdoors and finding balance in her life. She strives to create opportunities for every individual seeking greater health to obtain a better quality of life through the application of lifestyle modification, nutrition counseling, bodywork, and especially: acupuncture.
