Licensed Acupuncturist in Southwest Colorado – Dr. Kristen Lum

If you are wondering if a Naturopathic Doctor who is also an Acupuncturist is a good fit for you, imagine leaving a doctor’s office where you felt calm, informed, motivated, and listened to. Naturopathic Medicine and Acupuncture have long recognized our complex, holistic nature and the interconnection of body systems. They both have a unique philosophy and set of therapeutic methods. We are multi-faceted beings. Imagine our health is like a web, if you pluck a thread somewhere in a web, it will be felt in the entire structure.

Our goal is to restore the Seven Pillars of Health: Sleep, Thoughts & Emotions, Breathing, Hydration, Food, Connection and Movement. We inspire, educate and encourage each patient to optimize these Seven Pillars of Health so that they age slower and feel more vital with each passing year.

We also have the goal of searching for underlying causes of disease, addressing the problems, and going beyond just treating the symptoms. We look forward to helping you gain insight on how to restore the Seven Pillars of Health through Naturopathic Medicine and reset your nervous system with Acupuncture.
