Jessica W High risk pregnancy I first saw Jen when I was 6 ½ months pregnant, having multiple contractions every hour, and was taking Western drugs every 3 hours to help with the contractions. I was a high risk pregnancy, bedridden, with a high chance of miscarrying. After two weeks of acupuncture treatments with Jen, my back pain was gone, and I was able to decrease my medication to once every 7 hours. After the sixth treatment in three short weeks, I stopped the medication all together. I was so happy I no longer needed to poison my baby with those drugs. I am now two weeks from delivery and am so grateful to Jen and her acupuncture treatments.
Christine P Jen is a compassionate intuitive practitioner who listens and treats with precision and gentle expertise. I even brought my college-aged daughter, who was nervous about the needles, to Jen for her first ever acu treatment. She was very comfortable and felt well cared for. I consider BCA an integral part of my wellness team. BCA has made quality acupuncture accessible and affordable. They are my vote for best acupuncture in Boulder!
Cheryl S Magical! Stephanie is helpful, compassionate and quite frankly sometimes a miracle worker. Better results here than I get with any medication. Now my go to place for all of my aches and pains! Best of all I can afford it!
Larry P Lower back and leg pain Jen saved my life! I can walk again, thanks to Jen's acupuncture treatments. I had lower back and leg pain that had gotten so bad I was using a cane to walk. I couldn't stand up straight. After four treatments, I was pain free and walking again.
Sara C Anxiety and climbing injuries BCA has a welcoming atmosphere that quickly puts you at ease if the concept of community acupuncture if it is a new one to you. Katie is an excellent practitioner. Her style is calming and experienced, isolating points that are spot on to my aches and pains from being a mountain guide and ski patroller. She has helped me manage musculoskeletal fatigue and a chronic shoulder injury effectively.
Trevor T Jen is a life saver. I've been miserable for weeks going to different doctors. I feel like a new man this morning after my first treatment. Thanks so much.
Joy B I originally went to BCA for severe, crippling jaw tension/pain and teeth grinding, but Jen has helped me in so many other ways. This place is affordable and so effective, I would hands down recommend Jen and BCA for treatment from depression and anxiety to physical ailments such as muscle pain, poor circulation, and sleep issues. Cannot sing their praises enough! Thank you BCA!
Ray K Muscle tension and pain I have never felt that relaxed in my entire life! My wife said my face even looked different, like something big had happened. I have gotten deep tissue massage for years, and never have gotten that kind of relief. After just one treatment with Jen, my back released, my legs released, even my calves. I can't wait to get another treatment and more cupping.
Jessica R Multiple sports injuries I first saw Stephanie for a bone bruise at my MCL attachment, or was it for a severe dead leg on my right quad? No, it might have been for when I tore a ligament in my right thumb (skier's thumb). Well, it was sometime prior to my current injury (partially torn ACL) that I'm working through with her. Stephanie has helped me with so many injuries – it is remarkable. Her treatments have greatly reduced my healing time and allowed me to avoid taking rounds of anti-inflammatory drugs and other harsher treatments. Stephanie really understands how we use our bodies and how to heal and strengthen them. She's the first person I think of when I or my teammates get injured.
James P Sudden Sensorineural Hearing Loss I have had treatments by all three of the practitioners at Boulder Community Acupuncture and have been thrilled with the results. I was diagnosed with Sudden Sensorineural Hearing Loss by an ENT, and the only treatment offered was oral steroids. After having no change in my symptoms after two weeks, I came to Boulder Community Acupuncture. Although my symptoms have fluctuated, due to environmental and dietary conditions, my hearing has been restored. In addition, my sleep has improved. All three practitioners are excellent at what they do, and I would highly recommend any of them. And their sliding fee scale has allowed me to receive the treatments I need without the worry of going broke to do so. Stephanie, Jen and Katie are true healers, and I could not recommend them more highly. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Heather K chronic illness Life-saving! I've been going to BCA, and specifically, Jen, for years. I have a chronic illness and nothing gives me the relief (both physically and emotionally) of acupuncture. Jen's intuition and healing capabilities are life-saving and I trust her immensely with my body. The clinic is a sanctuary and I am so grateful for the high-quality/low cost care I've received for so long.
Serin S stress Katie Kelly is an outstanding acupuncturist who has worked tirelessly to support my wellness needs and goals over the past three years. She is present, skilled, a great listener and highly knowledgeable. I would wholeheartedly recommend her to any client.
Ysmael R Best Acupuncture in town! I've been going to BCA for several years now. Knowledgeable staff, effective treatment every time and affordable rates. Great service! Highly recommended!
Mel L Fertility My husband and I turned to Katie for help with acupuncture when we were trying to conceive. We had been trying for about 6 months on our own, and I was starting to become a little concerned that it would take me a long time to become pregnant because I was 35. Acupuncture seemed like a logical and easy next step. I ended up seeing Katie once a week for about a month, and then found out I was pregnant! We now have a happy and healthy daughter and I attribute part of our success to Katie and her great work. She is calming, kind, professional, and empathetic. Her office atmosphere is welcoming and relaxing. She is a mom herself, which I found reassuring in this sometimes vulnerable journey. I highly recommend working with her if you are looking for help with conception too - or anything else!
Sara B Upper back injury, bicep tendonitis I came to Stephanie originally for an upper back injury that had been troubling me for months. I was in a lot of pain and feeling pretty upset about it since it was keeping me from being active. With one treatment I felt an improvement the next day. I was so excited I came back and within 3 appointments I was able to return to training martial arts. I also had bicep tendonitis which with one treatment Stephanie made go away completely. I am very happy and grateful for the results in my rapid recovery since working with Stephanie. She is a warm and lighthearted healer.
Audrey L Anxiety I have suffered from anxiety for many years. I had gotten ear acupuncture in the past, but it never seemed to really help. I came into the clinic with extreme anxiety, really needing to be calmed down but not being able to do it on my own. After Jen put just a few needles in, I immediately felt a calm come over my body. I woke from my treatment feeling completely relaxed -- almost like I was floating on air. I highly recommend Jen if you are dealing with any anxiety or stress.
Steve S Pain I have tried acupuncture a periodically over the years with limited benefit. That changed when I started seeing Stephanie at BCA. Everything I have gone to her with has been resolved, quickly. Back pain, nerve issues, shoulder pain have all been treated successfully over the past several months. Great experience at BCA at a great price
Maria Chronic illness Acupuncture for the people! I've had a long standing chronic illness, and my financial resources are quite depleted. I am grateful for these practitioners making skillful compassionate treatment available through their generous sliding scale...and for the level of attention, respect and caring I receive, regardless of what I am able to pay. I have seen so many practitioners in the course of this illness, and I know when careful attention is being given to my whole health picture. I trust them- and I get results!
Janet Gelman, PA (Physician Assistant) I am so grateful for the presence of the community model acupuncture clinics. It is a visionary and progressive way of making acupuncture and Chinese Medicine available, affordable, and practical. Many of my patients have been receiving regular care, and are responding beautifully. Many thanks for making a huge contribution to the community.
