Acupuncture is a form of Chinese Medicine which uses the conductive power of metal needles, inserted at specific energy points within the body, to re-balance a person’s energy flow and field.
Acupuncture has been used around the world for thousands of years. While science does not really understand why acupuncture works, its effectiveness has been repeatedly documented for treating a wide variety of ailments.
Acupuncture works by using needles to stimulate the energy of very specific points of the body in order to rebalance the parts of the body associated with those points. Many people use acupuncture on a regular basis as a form of preventive medicine. Due to wide use and patient demand, insurance companies will often cover acupuncture treatment.

CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of a physiological body system called the CranioSacral system. This is comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. Practitioners release restrictions in the cranio-sacral system to improve the functioning of the central nervous system.
CST was pioneered and developed by osteopathic physician John E. Upledger following extensive scientific studies from 1975 to 1983 at Michigan State University, where he served as a clinical researcher and Professor of Biomechanics.

Healing Touch was developed by Janet Mentgen, RN, BSN a practicing nurse for 43 years. Janet Mentgen’s early work was with the U.S. Navy. Healing Touch utilizes light touch on the body in specific sequencing to assist in re-balancing the body and alleviating pain. Our clients have also experienced sleep improvement results with Healing Touch therapy.
A 2012 study with Scripps Hospital and Camp Pendleton returning combat marines found “…a clinically significant reduction in PTSD and related symptoms in a returning, combat exposed active duty military population.”
Healing Warriors Program offers a 6-session PTSD Series based on the Scripps/Camp Pendleton study and a 6-session Sleep Series also utilizing Belleruth Naparstek’s Guided Imagery.

We may have heard about complementary and alternative medicine before, but what exactly is it and what does it include? More and more types of complementary and alternative medicines become integrated into traditional healthcare models, and it is important to be informed about your healthcare options.
We are honored to have been featured by Colorado Public Television in a segment about alternative therapies for Post Traumatic Stress which aired in conjunction with the Ken Burns series on the Vietnam War on PBS. The segment did an excellent job of providing a snapshot of Pop Up clinic underway providing much-needed care services for our veterans. Watch the video segment here.
