Serving Denver since 1998 with Integrity, Intelligence, Results and Tenderness

Our Services


The value of a therapy like acupuncture leads us to embrace a different kind of healing. My approach comes from the realization that no two people share exactly the same illness and that treatments should be customized for each person’s specific constitution and symptoms.


What can you expect when you go for a cupping session? In this day and age, clean glass cups are used. Three thousand years ago, bamboo, animal horn or brass - if you could afford it - were the order of the day. In fact, the old Chinese name for cupping was 'horning'.


Acupuncture has long been complimented with the use of Chinese herbal medicine. Acupuncture aligns and balances the body’s energies through meridians. Herbs treat disease and disharmony by adjusting or altering the body’s internal energies.


"Cultivating the soil before planting the seeds" is an appropriate metaphor and common way of thinking about fertility in Chinese Medicine. The following recommendations are basic guidelines developed in part by Traditional Chinese Medicine theories as well as case studies and modern clinical research. As each individual varies in condition, treatment recommendations may vary as well.

On Call IVF Embryo Transfer

Why Acupuncture?

Some health issues can prove to be more of a challenge than others. When mysterious symptoms lead to diagnostic dead ends, Chinese medicine can often relieve aches and pains by sending electromagnetic signals to the immune system to help the body aid it’s own recovery. Modern clinical studies and published reports provide a new realm of research that presents acupuncture and herbal therapies in a scientific light. These reports are available upon request.
Acupuncture is not like getting a shot, which is what most everyone equates with needles. Much of the discomfort felt from a shot is due to the injection of a liquid substance into the body. Acupuncture needles are as fine as hair (less than 1/4 the thickness of a hypodermic needle). Comparing an acupuncture needle with a hypodermic needle is like comparing a thread to a rope.
Yes. Acupuncture treatments may be used along with other medical care with great advantage. To expedite healing, it has been used for pain control after medical or dental surgeries and procedures . It can also help further strengthen an individual after long-term illness or counteract the side effects of numerous medications. Herbal medicines are dispensed with and should be taken with caution. It is recommended that patients inform and consult with their physician regarding the use of herbal medications.
Yes! Every system of medicine has its own areas in which it has its greatest effectiveness. Acupuncture’s advantage is it’s diagnostic and treatment system that includes a deep understanding of our energetic nature and the impact of energetic imbalance on healing. Diagnosis includes attention to many symptoms that are not always viewed as relevant in Western medicine. Acupuncture’s approach is to treat the whole person, not just the symptoms.
Absolutely! One of the great advantages of acupuncture is the infrequent occurrence of serious side effects, including those from herbs. Needles are one-time disposable type and sterile like any other medical instrument used under meticulous conditions. Treatments can also be adjusted at any time to react to changes in an individuals condition.
