Bethany Ranney, L.Ac., M.Ac.


     I grew up in Minneapolis in a family with a very strong medical background. I always dreamed of a career in medicine and of being able to make a difference in people's lives.

     In my early 30s, while participating in the Breast Cancer 3-Day event, a sudden health occurrence altered my path. I woke up on the third day with severe back pain and was unable to walk more than a few steps without collapsing. Over the next couple of years, I tried many different modalities of care to try to restore full function to my legs and to decrease my pain, but nothing seemed to work. I had to take medication every day just to function and couldn’t even walk up the stairs or carry groceries without fear of falling.

     I had nearly given up hope of ever being normal again, when my back specialist referred me to an acupuncturist. Within three visits, there was a significant improvement in my mobility. By the sixth visit, I was able to stop taking pain medication. I realized that I had found my calling.

    In August of 2012, I graduated from Northwestern Health Sciences University with a Master's Degree in Acupuncture. I am also certified in Reiki I and II and have a certification in Advanced Constitutional Facial Acupuncture.

    I do this because I really care about people and I want everyone to be able to have a chance to recover the way I did. I believe that when we both care about your health, we can make amazing things happen!


Our Clinic


Metropolitan Acupuncture Professionals was created with the mission of helping patients get the care they need, while not getting stuck with, yet another, practitioner that they need to keep seeing forever.


Acupuncture is not a magic bullet that will fix you in one shot. It may take a number of treatments to get to the root of your problem, but we want to see you go on your way as quickly as possible. Our goal is to support your journey towards wellness, so you don't need rely on our services to feel your best.

Losing patients may seem like a poor business plan, but we believe that great results in our "old" patients will keep "new" patients coming for years to come.





I never would have believed how much pain relief could come from a few little 'well placed' studs in my ears. Couldn't have pain medicine after my bowel surgery and was in horrible pain. Within 15 minutes of my treatment, I was up walking in the hospital halls. Bethany really knows what she's doing!
