Services Offered at the Clinic


Acupuncture involves the insertion of extremely fine needles into acupuncture points on the body. These points are places where arteries, veins and nerves supply the superficial regions of the body. After insertion, needles are gently stimulated to produce a distending sensation around the point and along the channel. Acupuncture promotes tissue healing, boosts the immune system and increases the release of endorphins in the body. Only sterile, disposable, stainless steel needles are used.

Chinese Herbs

There are over 5,000 herbs in the Chinese materia medica. These herbs are powerful substances that can effectively treat many chronic and acute diseases. Herbs are combined together into formulas that are personalized for each patient. Chinese herbal formulas can be decocted and taken as a tea, or they can be taken in powder or pill form. At Yampa Valley Acupuncture & Chinese Herbs patients have a choice between taking bulk herbs, granular herbs or the pill form of herbal formulas.


Moxibustion involves burning the plant Artemisia vulgaris, also known as “moxa.” This herb is either burned directly on the skin or indirectly above the skin to promote circulation and warm the body.
