Jeff Albright sees himself as a bridge, connecting the gap in both ideology and practice between East and West. At Acupuncture & Chiropractic of Denver, he employs methods ranging from Japanese acupuncture to a number of gentle chiropractic techniques that address ailments such as whiplash, fibromyalgia, and chronic headaches.

Potted herbs and blooming flowers surround Apothecary Tinctura's doorway. This flora often mixes into the shop's essential oils, perfumes, teas, and tinctures. Herbalists consult with clients to determine their needs before custom-mixing medicinal blends to treat issues ranging from allergies to thyroid imbalances.
Natural healing methods also come into play in an on-site spa, where practitioners tone skin with Dr. Hauschka facials, work on the body with delicate acupuncture needles, and massage tense muscles. Hypnotherapy and reiki sessions are also available to restore cognitive and energy balances.
Licensed acupuncturist Katie Robinette strives to gently combat digestive disorders, headaches, infertility issues, and stress using Chinese medicine therapies.

Katie dispenses nutritional tips to help her patients find more balance in their daily lives.
Joy Hewitt Kind and Regina Rodriguez both have a personal passion for helping women in need. Channeling the healing powers of acupuncture and massage, respectively, the two have come together to create Harmony's Family Cooperative, an all-encompassing holistic care center that houses Comfort & Joy Oriental Medicine and helps women relax with massage and acupuncture sessions designed specifically for them. The spa aims to ease the burden on mothers and mothers-to-be through treatments that address fertility problems, postpartum issues, and malaise from the stress of early motherhood, as well as fending off any hired muscle from unpaid storks. They also teach classes that prepare expectant mothers and help keep them level-headed through the early months after giving birth.
Drs. Jinmei Xu and Mark Molinoff have traveled the globe to further their education in Chinese medicine.

Though they have similar backgrounds, Jinmei and Mark specialize in different methodologies; Mark focuses on musculoskeletal injuries and neurological disorders, and Jinmei addresses digestive issues, weight loss, and pain syndromes.
