Acupuncture at SOMA Therapeutic Massage

We are pleased to introduce our new SOMA team member: Ian Lowther.

Ian is a licensed acupuncturist in the states of Minnesota and Missouri and  certified nationally through the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM).  He is also a member of the American Association of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (AAAOM).  He received a Masters of Acupuncture degree from Northwestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington, Minnesota.

During clinical rotations he was able to provide care in wide variety of environments.

Through his work at the Pillsbury House in Minneapolis, he had the opportunity to work in an integrative clinic with students of chiropractic, nutrition, psychology, massage and traditional Western medical students to explore collaborative treatments to provide the most appropriate care for each patient.

At Courage Center Kenny Rehabilitation Institute in Golden Valley, MN,  he gained valuable experience in the treatment of spinal cord injuries, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and stroke patients.

His experience at The Aliveness Project in Minneapolis involved treating patients with autoimmune disorders such as HIV/AIDS and hepatitis.  As a commitment to his community and to the advancement of acupuncture as an effective healing art, he decided to continue working with The Aliveness Project as a volunteer acupuncturist after graduation.
He was introduced to Acupuncture as an adolescent when he experienced amazing relief with sports injuries of my own, and was able witness treatment of other family members for migraines, headaches, fevers and chronic pain issues.

In addition to his passion for health, he has a passion for travel and experiencing different cultures.  During his undergraduate education he was able to study in Costa Rica and travel to Germany, Austria and Switzerland.  In his final year of graduate school he studied in Tianjin, China at the First National Hospital of Tianjin, where he witnessed and studied amazing treatments for stroke victims.

His wife Emily and Ian have recently moved to St. Louis while Emily attends graduate school at Washington University Medical School for deaf education.

Ian believes that all healthcare options are truly complimentary to one another. Each modality of health care should be used when it is appropriate to serve the needs of every patient.

SOMA Therapeutic Massage Therapist Spotlight: Sam Hilsabeck


Sam has been a practicing as a Licensed Massage Therapist since early fall of 2016. Slightly new to the career field, he has enjoyed being able to work 1 on 1 with individuals to enable them to feel and function their very best. The pursuit to become a Massage Therapist began with an injury to his rotator cuff. Along with Physical Therapy, he added a weekly massage to my recovery plan, and was pleased to find that it helped to cut the recovery time in half. This led to his specialty service being Deep Tissue / Therapeutic work, however; he also enjoys providing a calming meditative massage as well.

He excels with Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Sports Massage and Prenatal Massage.
