My Story

Yunuen Beristain Amplified Wellness Acupuncture

Hey there! My name is Yunuén (she/her)

I'm a Herbalist, Licensed Acupuncturist, a Traditional Eastern Medicine Practitioner, and Energy Healer. This sounds like a lot… and it is! But what it all comes down to is that I am a guide to the healing and transformation of the people I help.

I help others heal and become. Because healing is becoming, and becoming who we are is healing.

I wasn't aware of my connection to the healing arts for a long time. Only after earning a couple of degrees in Business & Marketing and working in different fields, I became aware of my true source of fulfillment: 

Helping others to awaken and amplify their body and the spirit's ability to heal.

Acupuncture and Traditional Eastern Medicine allowed me to do just that, and when I started a Reiki practice, I discovered just how powerful these two arts are together.


Holistic medicine took over my soul, and it became like second nature to me. But it wasn't long into my career when I understood that the most significant change I could make in anyone's life was to teach them how to access and amplify their inherent healing capabilities.​

"Give someone a fish, and you feed them for a day. But teach them how to fish, and you feed them for a lifetime." -Unknown


I love helping people heal by tapping into the wisdom of their own bodies. But teaching people how to tap into this wisdom themselves, is the most powerful thing I have ever done.

This is how Amplified Wellness grew from Amplify Acupuncture — the first iteration of my healing practice. My work is to help you access and activate the healing wisdom within you.

I'm committed to high standards of professional conduct and ethics through my work. What that means, amongst other things, is:

  • I don't sensationalize spiritual work

  • I don't embrace or promote conspiracy theories

  • I don't exoticize Traditional Eastern Medicine or any other medicine I practice

  • I'm dedicated to the advancement of diversity, equity, and inclusion within the wellness industry

I collaborate with those who are determined to create change.

Intention, compassion, and openness are at the core of my approach as an acupuncturist. And I consider these values to be the key components of true service. 

I create solutions for people, not for problems. Before creating a solution plan, I first need to understand you. So together, we will dive deep.

We will zoom into your physical health, your needs, and your goals. 

We will explore the past, your present, and what you want in your future. We will design every aspect of your treatment plan and your learning journey - including herbal medicine when necessary.

Together, we will create a highly personalized health plan so you can holistically transform your health. But most importantly, so you can ignite your own healing today and continue to do so in the future.

We are not for everyone, and not everyone is for us. And that is OK. Just as every person is unique, every healer is unique too. 

It is important to choose a practitioner who can most effectively guide you through generating the changes that you need. If you have any questions, send me an email!
