Bringing Physical Therapy & Wellness to You!
Bethany Ranney, L.Ac. discovered acupuncture after she had an injury that resulted in severe back pain and leg weakness. Before treatment, she was afraid to even walk up a flight of stairs, let along resume exercise and other activities she loved. After recovering, Bethany decided that she wanted to bring this type of healing to others, so she began her acupuncture study at Northwestern Health Sciences University. She graduated magna cum laude in 2012 with her Master's Degree in Acupuncture. Bethany has worked in a variety of settings, providing care both one on one and in group settings. She cares deeply about her patients and wants to help them to achieve the amazing results that she knows are possible with the use of acupuncture.
In her free time, Bethany enjoys reading, running, weight training and spending time with her husband, five children and two grandchildren.

After working in the corporate world for many years, I was inspired to make a career change after visiting a Traditional Chinese Medicine clinic while traveling in China. I became fascinated by the focus that Chinese Medicine places on treating the whole person — mind, body, and spirit — and the power of this centuries-old medicine to heal such a vast array of conditions in our modern world.”
