Cailey, pronounced Ky-Lee, is a board-certified acupuncturist in the state of Colorado. She became an acupuncturist after her own back pain subsided with Chinese Medicine. Cailey studied at Southwest Acupuncture College in Boulder, Colorado. Her goal is to provide consistent care and results through acupuncture, herbal medicine, nutrition, supplements and education. She has an affinity for working with pain, women's health, digestive imbalances, stress, anxiety, and sleep dysfunction. Cailey also studied in Harbin, China at the Heilongjiang University Hospital, renowned for its ability to treat stroke patients. Cailey has attained advanced education certificates in Hormone Balance and Fertility, Neuro-functional Acupuncture, Kinetacore Dry Needling, Sloan Memorial Kettering Oncology Acupuncture, Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture, Injection Therapy, and more! She loves to learn and is always advancing her knowledge. In her spare time, she is an avid 5-Rhythms dancer, a yogini, a lover of cooking and dining out, and a music aficionado.
Cailey's style blends Japanese needling techniques and auricular (ear) acupuncture with modern neuro-functional principles. She uses electrical stimulation (e-stim) for fertility and birth encouragement as well as for alleviating pain, and dry needling when appropriate. She is trained in cupping therapy as well as moxibustion therapy and uses these two techniques to support some treatments.
Acupuncture is a complete medical system of diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of illness. Hair thin needles are placed at specific locations on the body to promote blood flow; this helps reduce inflammation and stimulate the nervous, immune and endocrine systems. Acupuncture regulates the parasympathetic or rest-and-digest nervous system. During a treatment oxytocin, the "feel good" hormone, is released along with endorphins, the body's natural pain killers. Most patients feel very relaxed during a treatment and refreshed afterwards. Acupuncture techniques and points locations may look different each treatment.
CHINESE HERBAL MEDICINE
The Chinese herbal pharmacopeia has over 300 herbs. Chinese herbs are non-habit forming. Herbal formulas are tailored to fit the needs of the individual patient and can change as symptoms change. Chinese herbal therapy is an integral part of the medicine. During a visit herbs can be discussed and prescribed if appropriate. The uses and benefits of Chinese herbs include: improving energy, digestion, respiratory health and sleep; decreasing pain, regulating menstrual cycles, balancing hormones, and boosting the immune system as well as alleviating cold and flu symptoms and seasonal allergies.
WHAT CAN TCM TREAT?
According to the World Health Organization:
low back pain, sciatica

allergic rhinitis, hay fever
primary dysmenorrhea (painful periods)
NUTRITION & SUPPLEMENTS
Chinese nutrition therapy views food as medicine. Just as acupuncture and herbal therapies are customized for the individual, food selection or elimination is suggested according to the patient's presentation. Modern research shows that 90% of our serotonin is made in the digestive tract.
This aligns beautifully with Chinese Medicine philosophy in that there is a gut/brain connection and that our digestion plays a greater role in how we think and feel.
Along with providing patients nutritional advice Cailey also keeps up to date on the latest supplement research and advises accordingly. See her trusted resources in SHOP.

I had severe back pain. I had been to the Dr. and PT with no hope. Next was surgery when my Dr. recommended this clinic. Cailey is wonderful. I have no pain now. Even if it flair's up one treatment and it's gone. I thank Cailey every morning when I get out of bed pain free.

Cailey has taken me from an anxious, sick, tired person, to someone who can make it through work with energy, be a strong and passionate mother, and train (and successfully race) a marathon! Every single visit, I feel that I am listened to, respected, and treated as an individual case with attention to all pieces of my health.
I’ve seen Cailey about a dozen times. Once a week. I look forward to my healing visits. My life has been transformed under her care. I have witnessed amazing results from her skilled and professional abilities. I can honestly say that my overall health has greatly improved.
