She earned her Master’s degree in Oriental Medicine summa cum laude from Northwestern Health Sciences University and studied at the largest Traditional Chinese Medicine hospital in the world in Tianjin, China. She’s a Licensed Acupuncturist through the Minnesota Board of Medical Practice and a nationally board-certified herbalist.

Senia is a renowned holistic health expert in the Twin Cities and has been featured in Minnesota Monthly magazine, Pioneer Press, Star Tribune, Women’s Health and FM107.

It has always been her dream to be the Holistic Health Expert on Twin Cities Live and she’s excited every time she goes on the show! Senia spends her days doing acupuncture in her sunny, aqua-infused clinic on Grand Avenue and her weekends decorating yet another room in her old Victorian house with French furniture and damask wallpaper.
