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.
