Testimonials

Every visit is a joy. Julie is fully present with me and tuned into my needs. Her ability to treat a variety of ailments always amazes me. I would highly recommend her to everyone.

  • Mandy S.

Julie conducts her work and practice with great care. I have been a patient for seven years and can say frankly that without her care, I would not enjoy as good health as I do. I have and would recommend her to anyone interested in acupuncture or chinese medicine.

  • Corey N.

Juie is thorough, but what stands out is her intuitive nature as to where the pain or discomfort is originating from and all that it connects to. Bimonthly treatments have helped my unique leg and foot situations feel better than they have in years. Julie is always genuine, thoughtful and concerned regarding all phases of a patient’s life. Besides all that… the MOXA is the best.

  • Martin S.

Julie accomplished in only three to four sessions what almost a year of physical therapy could not. I had bursitis in my hip and pain that kept me away each night and interfered with my daily activities. Julie’s acupuncture skills are amazing!

  • Donna L.

I have spent many years pursuing various alternative therapies for pain relief, and Julie is one of the most incredible health practitioners I’ve ever seen. It’s easy to find a practitioner who has completed the necessary schooling for a degree, but it is very rare to find a practitioner who has a genuine gift for healing and restoring a person’s body. Julie is this type of rare gem! I initially went to Julie for relief from pain associated with an ankle injury. I had heard that acupuncture could be helpful but came with low expectations as passed acupuncture had made little difference to my health. I was simply desperate for something to work. In addition to my ankle injury, I soon shared with Julie my struggles with neck and jaw pain, PMS, menstrual cramping and stress-induced insomnia. My first session was incredible – the type of treatment that reduces pain and increases physical vitality everyone versus impacting only one specific region of the body. Julie’s treatments continue to help my sleep, improve my ankle recovery, and significantly reduce debilitating menstrual cramping and PMS symptoms. On another occasion, I visited Julie complaining of debilitating wrist pain. I’m extremely active, and have been doing a high volume of shoulder and arm exercises in addition to daily swimming. I woke up one morning my wrist hurt so much I couldn’t pull toilet paper off a roll. I wore a brace for two days. I made no sense, as I had been fine the day before! Julie insisted that the pain was rooted in severe neck and shoulder tension, potentially compressing a nerve. All I know is that over a period of two sessions, she applied a bunch of needles to my back and shoulder and the pain disappeared. It was incredible, as the pain had been debilitating the prior two days. Julie also provided feedback for altering my exercise regimen to avoid a similar injury in the future. When my mom visited Boulder, I bought her a session and she had a similar experience. My mom had received acupuncture for a time years ago in Southern California, but had experienced little to no benefits. She actually asked me to cancel the appointment, but I insisted that she keep it. My mom suffers from insomnia, menopause symptoms (eg. severe hot flashes) and some shoulder pain. She came out of the session floating, and slept like a log that night. She noticed decreased inflammation across her whole body, increased peace of mind and a decrease in hot flashes. On numerous occasions, for the following months, she said that she wished she lived in Boulder and could see Julie regularly. In addition to Julie’s skill as a practitioner, she is deeply grounded, peaceful, kind and extremely knowledgeable. Throughout my time as her patient, I have appreciated learning about Chinese medicine. In addition to education, she’s provided lifestyle modifications that have continued to improve my quality of life. Another reason she’s so respectable is her desire to make acupuncture accessible to all people. She has a weekly acupuncture clinic where she sees two clients at a time at a reduced rate from her individual sessions. As a graduate student, this made all the difference. I can’t say enough wonderful things about Julie. I only wish she had a clinic in San Diego, where I recently moved for a new job. She’s a wonderful practitioner and lovely human being, you simply can’t go wrong working with her!

  • Elizabeth P

My girlfriend scheduled an appointment for me with Julie after the Boulder Ironman.  I’d never had acupuncture before and wasn’t sure what to expect. But I have to say the treatment worked wonders! I was extremely sore after the race, specifically my legs and knees.  Julie performed a treatment that targeted my knees and I had no pain after the treatment! Fastest knee recovery out of a race, I’ve ever done. I’d see her regularly if I didn’t live out of state.
