Why Wellnest Denver Acupuncture?

“I left my appointment feeling a greater sense of calm…”

I am a teacher and have been incredibly stressed adjusting to teaching in a pandemic. I left my appointment feeling a greater sense of calm than I have felt in over a year! She also greatly relieved my neck pain from being hunched over a computer for hours on end. This was my first experience with acupuncture and I felt incredibly comfortable and well taken care of.

“I could feel the tension leaving my body…”

I had an amazing experience for my first time trying acupuncture! I could feel the tension leaving my body as well as where I hold my stress, in my face. I also got great recommendations and information about other areas where I hold stress: shoulders, digestive system, etc. Overall, I couldn’t be happier with my session!
