Traditional Chinese medicine is built on the belief that healing begins when the two forces at work within the body settle into equilibrium. The practitioners at Berkeley Community Acupuncture and Massage trust this holistic principle will overcome their modern patients’ afflictions just like it did for those who practiced it before “ouch” was even assigned a petroglyph. Their acupuncture and massage treatments cure pain and disease from the inside out, and whereas acupuncture enlists thin needles to rebalance the flow of energy through the body, massage does the same thing using gentle kneading motions. Clients can combine the techniques or select just one in order to help ease digestive and respiratory disorders or simply diminish the stress of daily life.
At Rocky Mountain Holistic Healing Center, a team of experts in traditional and alternative medicine takes a multifaceted approach to wellness. A medical doctor and registered nurse can provide clinical support during weight-loss programs, and a certified herbalist offers insight on homeopathic remedies and nutritional therapy. To relieve aches and pains, a licensed acupuncturist and practitioner of oriental medicine unblocks bodily energy, and massage therapists, a yoga instructor, and an advanced rolfing practitioner use their expertise to loosen taut and double-knotted muscles. The team also includes a master reiki practitioner and certified clinical hypnotherapists ready to help clients overcome addiction or emotional difficulties.
The Denver location welcomes guests with exposed-brick walls and a large, Asian-inspired painting. A trickling water fountain soothes the senses, and a tranquil sand garden provides a private spot for reducing stress or returning a domesticated pet rock to the wild.
Body Mind Energy Center's staff is experienced, but massage isn't the only technique they use to relieve their clients' pain. The staff also draws from Eastern healing techniques such as craniosacral, acupuncture, intuitive healing and reiki, a method of manipulating the body's energy in order to treat a wide range of maladies. The studio's repertoire includes acupuncture, teaching yoga, Pilates, foam roller, and holding Qigong workshops.
At The Human Joint, Doctor of Chiropractic Julie Seymour oversees a one-stop holistic health service whose consortium of practitioners aid clients in their pursuit of natural, all-over wellness. Dr. Seymour adjusts clients of all ages, treating from newborn babies to wizened great-grandparents with gentle, low-force bodywork that realigns spines and recalibrates energy centers. Massage therapist Vivian Masters heals persistent pain with Swedish, trigger-point, body-insight, and deep-tissue massage techniques that focus on strengthening clients' mind-body connection. Other practitioners target inner well-being; hypnosis helps nix smoking addictions, encourage weight loss, and deal with anxiety, and health coaching inspires clients to trade harmful behaviors for new healthy habits.
Whole Health Center’s chiropractors, acupuncturists, and certified massage therapists vary in their specialties, but they work toward a common goal—to get clients healthy without the use of drugs or surgery. To achieve this mission, they call upon the body's own healing capabilities using noninvasive techniques such as spinal adjustments, massages, and acupuncture. They demonstrate their commitment to patient health not only by customizing treatment plans after a thorough consultation and exam but by keeping their doors open to walk-ins and appointments seven days a week.
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.
