Biography

Welcome to Boulder Body Balance Acupuncture, the Traditional Chinese Medical practice of Elif Kuzu, licensed and board certified Chinese herbalist and acupuncturist located in beautiful Boulder, Colorado. As more people seek drug-free treatment for various health conditions, the ancient art of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has much to offer. TCM is an Eastern form of healing that has been practiced for more than 4,000 years. It is accepted around the world as a safe, effective and holistic complement – and in many cases as an alternative, to western medicine. TCM acts as a guide to harmonize the physical body with the mind and spirit, addressing the whole being. Chinese medicine treats the whole person – it is not solely focused on the physical ailment as it addresses the underlying causes as well. Its diagnostic and therapeutic strengths lie in its ability to identify and treat both the source of the illness as well as the presenting symptoms. In this it differs from Western medicine which often tends to focus on symptomatic relief. I believe in integrative medical health doing so I try my best to help patients with chronic and acute issues including pain, digestive disorders, sleep issues, anxiety, gynecological disorders, male and female fertility in conjunction with IVF therapies, addiction problems, injection therapies such a B12 and Lipo-vite for weight management. I work in a integrative clinic with a holistic M.D. inside Boulder Holistic Medical Center which is affiliated with Avista Hospital. Our office offers different medical modalities such as cupping( Fire cupping, sliding cupping, retention cupping), Electro- stimulation, Guasha therapy, Moxabustion therapy, Essential oil therapy, complementary in combination with Acupuncture treatments, Auricular(ear) acupuncture therapy, scalp acupuncture for stroke patients, injection therapy and much more.
