Acupuncture uses the body’s natural healing capacity to restore physical and emotional health. By placing thin, sterile needles in specially selected locations, we gain direct access to deep reserves of energy moving in the skin, muscles, and sinews. This energy is unique to each person and is responsible for your individual health and emotional outlook.

When you experience pain, dysfunction, fatigue, or emotional instability, your body is sending you a message. The job of an acupuncturist is to interpret that message and provide a “course correct.” Acupuncture immediately and painlessly directs your body toward a natural state of health and helps you feel better, both physically and mentally, right away.

At Boulder Acupuncture and Herbs, we treat patients of all ages. There is a difference between treating elders and younger patients in terms of the amount of time needed for the diagnostic intake and needle retention. Older adults typically rest with the needles in for 20 minutes, while younger patients benefit by having needles in for 30 minutes or more.

Your practitioner can educate you on the type and length of treatment that will bring the best results.
