What we treat

The State of Colorado Statutes define the scope of practice for a Licensed Acupuncturist as follows:

[“Practice of acupuncture” means the insertion and removal of acupuncture needles, injection therapy, the application of heat therapies to specific areas of the human body, and adjunctive therapies. Adjunctive therapies within the scope of acupuncture may include manual, mechanical, thermal, electrical, and electromagnetic treatment; the recommendation of therapeutic exercises; and, subject to federal law, the recommendation of herbs and dietary guidelines. The “practice of acupuncture” is based upon traditional and modern oriental medical concepts.]
