Ellen Arndorfer began studying Oriental Medicine in China in 1985 and has been a practicing acupuncturist for nearly 30 years. She has been licensed in the state of Wisconsin since 1990, after graduating from the Midwest Center for the Study of Oriental Medicine & Acupuncture. She is part owner of the Viroqua Healing Arts Center, and has been supporting La Crosse area clients for years. We are thrilled to have Ellen’s expertise here, at the Naturally Unbridled Wellness Holistic Therapies Center.
Ellen did post-graduate study in Chinese Herbal Medicine, and has worked with herbal medicines for the past 25 years.
In 2005, seeking a deeper spiritual understanding of her art, Ellen embarked on the study of Classical Five Element Acupuncture at the Institute of Classical Five Element Acupuncture in Santa Monica, California, completing the full course of study.
Now, drawing from the depth of her education and the breadth of her experience, Ellen practices both Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), and Classical Five-Element Acupuncture.
“You read the books diligently for 20 years. You study what the ancestors have done and you graciously utilize their knowledge to serve humanity. After the first 20 years, you give your books to your students and practice from a different place, an artistic place where the rules bend in their own unique way.” – Acupuncture teacher
Ellen’s personal life feeds her practice, helping her understand what it means to have a full and integrated life. She is a wife and the mother of two grown children; is a 25-year supporter of CSAs; a member of a twice-weekly workout group; part of an ongoing women’s group; and an active member of her small town community.
Ellen holds a deep respect for the healing power of the human body and feels honored to assist her patients on their journey toward wholeness.
Ellen is in our office on Thursdays from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm.
