Meet Our Acupuncturists, L.Ac.

 Traci Bredenkamp, L.Ac. #MO 2018043155 Traci Bredenkamp, L.Ac. #MO 2018043155

Traci is a graduate of the Won Institute of Graduate Studies, in Glenside, PA. She found acupuncture after receiving treatment for chronic back pain from an auto accident. It helped her tremendously.  She had always been into spiritual and holistic health and thought the profession would be a good fit. She is also a veteran and decided to use her GI Bill to go into the acupuncture field. She is so grateful that she did!


Traci’s favorite part of being an acupuncturist is having the opportunity to talk to people and hear their stories. She loves assisting them in any aspect of their lives that need help. Her own experience with chronic pain drives her to help those who are suffering. She loves to help lower her patient's pain levels and increase their level of functionality. 


Traci joined the Modern Acupuncture team because she likes how it allows acupuncturists to treat many people. She also likes how the methods used in the clinic are organized into one efficient model, enabling acupuncturists to focus on treating members and give them the best chance at healing.


When she isn’t treating patients, she loves spending time with her three children. Together, they love to hike outdoors and travel as often as possible. As a military family they have seen the whole country but St. Louis is home, and they always seem to find new things to do in this great city. They also have two miniature dachshund dogs that they dote on.

Toni believes that acupuncture can make people’s lives better with its simplicity and effectiveness. Being thousands of years old, it is a time tested medicine.

Toni is a St. Louis native and is looking forward to bringing acupuncture to her community.

Dr. Eric Waltemate D.C. #2002013838Dr. Eric Waltemate D.C. #2002013838

Eric is a graduate of Logan University and also studied at the Institute of Classical Five Element Acupuncture. He has always loved Chinese culture. He was taught by a family who owned a local restaurant to speak, read, and write Chinese. After having a patient who wasn’t getting better with other treatments, Eric decided to learn acupuncture to add to his skill set and help more people get well.  He loves the fact that with a few simple needles inserted into specific areas on the body, a profound change can occur. Over the past 15 years, he has seen many amazing transformations in thousands of patients. 

Eric chose to be part of the Modern Acupuncture team to help as many people as he can.  The structure of Modern Acupuncture allows more people to receive treatment affordably.

When he isn’t treating patients, Eric enjoys spending time with his family. He has been playing guitar for over 30 years and enjoys playing and listening to music. Eric has practiced Martial Arts for over 25 years. He also enjoys watching movies.

Wow! This place is amazing. I called at 6:24pm, and asked if I could still get in tonight, and they said, "of course, head on over". They close at 7pm, very impressed with their customer service, and willingness to stay late to help me out. My sister-in-law is a patient as well. Thank you for opening up in the STL area.

Angela S. (Des Peres, MO) - 3/6/2019


I've been coming to Modern Acupuncture for a few months now and am really loving it. The place is calming and everyone is so friendly it-it eases any nerves I had. Hubby is now joining me. I am doing the cosmetic and have noticed my skin is tighter and smoother. Hubby is working on arthritis in knee and sinus issues and he is seeing results already-he's been coming less than a month. I highly recommend it!

Modern Acupuncture has been a GOD SEND. I won 3 free trials through my gym membership and have been struggling with planters fasciitis , which began to affect my knee and low back, for about 2 years. I considered acupuncture, but never made the step. I am so happy I won the 3 visits! After the first time I instantly noticed a difference in how I felt. The staff and environment is very warm and friendly, I know I am in good hands! Now, I plan to continue with acupuncture services.

Marion M. (Des Peres, MO) - 3/1/2019


The set up of the place is so soothing and calming and all the staff are so friendly. I was having migraines when I first came in, but after a couple of treatments, it is now completely gone.
