What makes our clinic unique?
Every individual experiences life in a unique way, whether in sickness or in health. As such, we believe patient care should be tailored to each individual’s specific needs.
To do this, we first develop a clear understanding of each patient’s unique health concerns and align our treatment strategies accordingly. We pay special care to any additional areas of concern and take steps to make each patient feel as comfortable as possible. Patient care is our top priority, and we believe education to be a key factor in individual success. Not only do we provide information on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine, but we also offer nutritional counseling, herbal counseling, and lifestyle recommendations at no additional cost—the essential elements for sound holistic medicine.

Living with pain can significantly affect one’s quality of life. Our clinic specializes in mitigating these negative consequences by providing comprehensive treatment programs that address not only pain but the underlying pathologies as well.
To begin healing, acupuncturists first pinpoint the locations of pain, muscle imbalances, and soft tissue lesions. Then, specific acupuncture points are used to correct overactive or inhibited muscle fibers. By using these acupuncture points, trigger points, and motor points, acupuncturists are able to “reset” the affected muscle spindle fibers. As a result, the body learns to maintain balance between opposing muscle groups while retaining muscle strength and tone.
Although no two injuries are alike, these basic principles are adapted and modified to meet the individual patient’s needs. Boulder is an active community, and our sports medicine program is geared at returning athletes to their peak level performance, whether as a weekend jogger or a competitive triathlete. Boulder also has a thriving tech industry, and we understand the pain associated with long hours in front of a computer. Our repetitive stress programs alleviate pain from strained posture, lack of mobility, and repeated movements.
Unfortunately, living with pain can lead to a number of other ailments. Our clinic addresses not only pain, but also concurrent issues, such as poor sleep, fatigue, stress, anxiety, unwanted weight fluctuations, and even addiction.
If you, or anyone you know, are experiencing any of these conditions, please call us today to discuss how acupuncture may provide relief.
