I am a Classical Five-Element Acupuncturist practicing body, mind, spirit acupuncture in Broomfield, CO. I believe that to truly heal the body or mind of a pain or ailment it must also be addressed on an emotional and spiritual level as well. I became an acupuncturist after it changed my life. In 2004 I separated from the military. The VA was wanting to do hip surgery on me due to risk of necrosis caused by the subluxation of my femur. I was only 26 and told them I was choosing to seek alternative options. One of these options was a man I worked with at the university hospital. Along with my hip I had also been dealing with PTSD, migraines, depression, shoulders pain, neuropathy and degenerative disk disease. I only told the acupuncturist about the hip but it helped all of my conditions tremendously and within months. I asked him how this was possible. He explained that in healing the emotional and spiritual aspect of the bod as well as the physical you can heal almost anything from the inside out. This experience with acupuncture led to me choosing the one school in the US that taught the same style of acupuncture I had just received. During the course of acupncture school certain events led me to the door of another healer, Leanne Holitza. Leanne is a psychic and intuitive healer. Leanne taught me how to see additional subtle energies and how to move them. She helped me see how these energies related to different acupuncture conditions and showed me a deeper level of healing than what I was already learning in school. These educations have shaped the way I facilitate healing. I believe that when we interact with other people and the world around us we take on energy that is not our own. I work to clear people of energy that does not resonate with them and reinforce from the center to help push imbalance out. I utilize a number of styles of acupuncture depending on what an individual resonates with. I don't actively treat symptoms and I don't believe that acupuncture or energy work is one size fits all. Every treatment is tailored to your individual needs, meeting you where you are at in you journey. I am a licensed acupuncturist in the state of Colorado, a Diplomate of Acupuncture and hold a Masters in Classical Five-Element Acupuncture. As well as being an alternative medicine provider, I currently work in the hospital pharmacy setting. Prior to this I served a Hospital Corpsman where I received military education and experience in primary care, nursing and EMS.
