Welcome to Aspen Acupuncture

About Us

Does it work?

My goal is to bring an ancient modality into a modern world. Acupuncture treats or helps with many ailments and dis-ease. If you can imagine, thousands of years ago there was not western medicine nor surgical procedures or pharmaceuticals. The Chinese used their medicine which had a way of treating and curing with their generational techniques. Why does it work? As my Chinese professors told me... many years of experience goes into just one acupuncture point. I can work on your leg to help your frozen shoulder. In sitting down to try to explain thousands of years of knowledge, I have come to the conclusion that I can say qi flow, meridians, deficiency or excess... but to make it easy on us all...  IT JUST WORKS. 

Throughout the years, many scientific studies have proven it reduces inflammation - which is most dis-ease and signals pain receptors and these both ease or stops pain. The world health Organization (WHO) has recognized Acupuncture to treat and help many dis-eases. 


Science, A few known Theories of WHY

Scientist and doctors have their theories to explain the benefits of acupuncture;

Stimulation of neurotransmitters that affect immune system function,

Release of norepinephrine, acetylcholine and several types of opioids which results in pain reduction and activation of specific receptors that inhibit the transmission of painful stimuli are to name a few.


MRI's have been used to map the brain patterns during stimulation of certain acupuncture points along with blood sampling to understand the chemistry behind what is physiologically happening.

It is too much to list here on my web site, but Dr Norm Shealy, a neurosurgeon, has had many important health discoveries of this century. He has had all the equipment at his disposal to run every test possible. 

Anyway, if you want the research, it is out there.

Why come in?

What ever you have going on, maybe its a sore elbow, knee, low back, diarrhea, constipation, sleep, anxiety ... I could go on and on, so let me just say:  ANYTHING YOU HAVE WRONG WITH YOU, acupuncture can usually help with. The goal is to get your body in balance.

If your problem is acute it may only take a few sessions to ease it. If the problem is chronic, it can take a while, I've seen it work fast on some patients and slow on others. It really depends on your body. Everyone is different. Not one body is the same. Let's face it- if you have had the issue for 20 years, please give it some time to work! I'd love it to work overnight, but that is not always the case.

We will work out a plan according to your body and response time to the treatments. My patients usually ask if they can still come in even though they feel good- Of course, Chinese medicine is based on prevention. Take care of the problem before it starts. In ancient times a Doctor only got paid if the patient was well and not if the patient was sick. Keeping your immune system healthy through acupuncture and herbs helps deter dis-ease before it starts.

We understand that you are not living your best life possible unless your mind and body are completely healthy. That's why application of acupuncture and/or Chinese herbs can encourage the intelligent self-healing powers within the body so it begins restoring health and balance to your life.

Herbs were commonly used before western pharmaceuticals were introduced. Treating and preventing medical conditions with herbs is naturally safe, as an overdose would cause irritation or nausea instead of landing in the emergency room.
