My goal is to create a healing space for my patients. I work with people on an ongoing basis-with a minimum of six months. Healing takes time, and an occasional visit or check in does not cut it to reverse long-term health problems. I am here to help and support you on every step of your health journey. Using specialized medicine lab testing, we will get to the root cause of your health problems. The lab tests I most often recommend are food sensitivity, nutrient, hair mineral, and microbiome testing. Together, we will make a plan to get your body back into balance. This can include dietary and lifestyle changes, acupuncture, herbs, short-term supplementation, and referrals for other modalities. I also may recommend prescription medications or seeing a physician specialist. Science and modern medicine are not the enemies here-I just don't think they are the only option. I believe the combination of modern medicine with more natural practices is the best approach to health.
This can be done virtually for patients in Colorado or Michigan.
ASP Ear Acupuncture
This is one service I'm excited to offer, as I've found it to be personally very effective. ASP needles are small 24K gold studs that are inserted into your ear. They last 1-3 weeks and fall off on their own.
The entire body is represented on the ear according to Chinese Medicine, so any condition can be treated using this. I have found it works exceptionally well for pain-whether it is acute or chronic. I once treated my own broken rib with these and didn't require any prescription or over the counter pain medications! These can be done in a quick 15 minute appointment, so it is perfect if you need a pick-me-up but are short on time.
Acute Issue Treatment
Struggling with pain and swelling after an injury? Have a short term illness that you would like to treat more holistically? This can include ASP ear acupuncture (my secret weapon for pain control), body acupuncture, and recommendations for herbal and natural treatments for healing and pain for your specific injury.
Great for minor injuries where you are able to get back to sports quickly, or major injuries-broken bones, pre or post op, and to complement physical therapy. Living in Colorado, the main goal for most people is to return to their sports as soon as possible. This will help aid your body's natural healing ability-decreasing pain and increasing function.
*This is not a diagnostic evaluation, this is for treatment only.
As the medical system gets harder to navigate, patients are very understandably wanting answers. Due to the complex nature of certain conditions, many people are left jumping from specialist to specialist, unable to get answers. I can provide assistance in navigating this system. Whether it is how to talk to your doctors to get the workup you need, discussing what questions you need to be asking, or translating complex medical language into easier to understand terms, I am available for further assistance.
In the Denver metro area, I am available to go to appointments with you for further help. Email for further information and pricing.
