About Our Denver Acupuncture Clinic

About Garryn Gauthier | Licensed Acupuncturist | Owner of Wellnest

As a licensed acupuncturist in Denver, Colorado, I’m on a mission to mainstream Eastern medicine and make the world and my community a healthier and happier place.

I grew up in the Wisconsin countryside, riding my bike in the forest, playing with insects, and involved in almost every sport imaginable. I tore a ligament in my knee and it greatly impacted my life. I could no longer enjoy the active lifestyle I greatly identified with.

I had an expensive failed surgery that I was told would do the trick. But after inescapable and constant pain, my perception of Western medicine was less than romantic. I moved to Hawaii to try to find some resolve and passionately fell in love with a mysterious Eastern medicine.

My first acupuncture treatment greatly reduced the pain in my knee and the anxiety I carried with me from my trauma was virtually gone. I thought to myself, “I need to do this. I need to help people feel this way!

This passionate love affair carried me to Santa Cruz, California. I enrolled in Five Branches University’s four-year Masters degree program of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine. Immediately after I passed my California Acupuncture board exam and became a licensed acupuncturist, I opened my own practice and have quickly become a leader in the acupuncture community.

I am highly qualified in cosmetic acupuncture and facial acupuncture. In my clinic, I also successfully treat acupuncture for fertility, pain, women’s health, insomnia, digestive issues, and so much more! Lately, I have felt a strong calling to help those with acupuncture for anxiety, stress, and depression. If you are looking for a Denver acupuncture clinic, you are in superior hands here at Wellnest Acupuncture + Holistic Medicine.

“I had an incredible experience with Wellnest! Garryn is not only extremely knowledgeable with acupuncture and Chinese medicine (I learned so much in just one visit!) but she is also incredibly compassionate. She truly cares about her patients. The office is cozy and welcoming and the treatment experience was so gentle and tranquil. And I slept so well after my treatment! It has been a long time since I slept that well. Can’t wait for my next visit. Wellnest is my favorite Denver acupuncture clinic!”
