- You are using your time or money to prioritize your health
- You aren’t interested in discussing your mood, feelings, stress level
- You aren’t able to book appointments several weeks in advance
Acupuncture and functional medicine may still be an effective treatment. We will happily refer you to someone who is a better fit.
Boulder Acupuncture & Functional Medicine Recent Articles
Acupuncture has changed my life. I have been seeing Caitlin for about six months and it is amazing. She works on everything from my neck/shoulder pain to back and hip pain; emotional ups and downs, sinus and allergies, sleep problems, wrist pain, etc. I always feel better when I leave than when I went in, and I feel better physically, mentally, and emotionally in general.*
2 1/2 years ago I was hit with a huge health crisis. Fortunately, I found Caitlin soon after and she has walked with me every step of the way through multiple treatments, surgeries, tests, scans, anxiety, and depression. I can honestly say I could not have made it through without her enormous skill, talent, kindness, compassion and wonderful sense of humor. Her competency, knowledge, insight and sincerity have given me peace, relief and a new sense of appreciation for my body and my life.*
Caitlin is wonderfully fantastic to work with. The combination of intelligence around the acupuncture medical system and her modern outlook helps create a comprehensive healthcare benefit that I wish I did more of. Her Boulder acupuncture clinic location is perfect and it is always a moment in time I look forward to for a healing experience. I highly recommend working with her for anything from acute issues to overall health and wellness. Also, the online scheduler is super convenient and easy to use.*
I’ve been seeing Caite for acupuncture off and on for a year now and I am consistently impressed by her skills and ability to make the process as comfortable as possible. I love how I feel after a session with her at Amaluna! And her dog Koa is adorable too!*
I’ve had chronic pain in my legs and back from running injury 6 years ago and after seeing Caitlin for acupuncture and cupping, I have pain-free days for the first time since I got injured! And even though I HATE needles, I’ve actually grown to crave acupuncture.*
Caitlin is kind, competent and very professional. Her nutrition tips were an unexpected bonus. Highly recommended!*
At the recommendation of my neurologist I have been receiving treatment from Caitlin (owner/practitioner) to help with my persisting TBI symptoms. Out of the many acupuncturists in the Boulder area, I decided on Amaluna Acupuncture & Wellness for a few reasons: 1) the website’s thoroughness that is reflective of her expertise; included are resources, research and general information (such as the structure of appointments, approach, cost, and more), 2) the small, personal nature of the practice, 3) the holistic approach, and, of course, 4) the many rave reviews! I have been receiving treatment once to twice per week with Caitlin since April (three months to date) and am beyond satisfied with my decision. I really appreciate her holistic approach and how knowledgeable she is. She goes above and beyond an acupuncture appointment and provides recommendations for additional healing – whether that means essential oils, nutrition and food products, lifestyle changes, additional treatment options, etc. She also tries to minimize the discomfort from my symptoms (particularly light and noise sensitivity) during appointments by offering to turn off lights, close blinds, and adjust music levels (her office is nice and quiet to begin with). It is this kind of thoughtfulness, awareness, and kindness that makes the experience with Caitlin stand out. She made my first experience with acupuncture a very positive one. I would recommend Caitlin’s practice without hesitation to anyone seeking a holistic health provider because she is not only a great practitioner but also a genuinely good person.*
I had been working with Caitlin for a few months doing facial injections for wrinkles. I can see a big difference in lines and so does everyone else. Caitlin is an amazing practitioner, she knows exactly what she is doing and always has professional suggestions that really work.*
Caitlin is an amazing practitioner! I’m seeing great results after only a few treatments. I drive from Fort Collins to Boulder just for treatment. She is definitely worth it! Highly recommend her.*
I started seeing Caite for menstrual cramps after years of ibuprofen and prescription medications. I’ve gone from two days of being incapacitated to working through my worst days with the aid of herbs and a heating pad. I couldn’t be happier with my results and have continued doing acupuncture for the other benefits like digestion and energy levels! Caite is really amazing, too. She is sensitive to all conditions and professional in every sense of the word (especially because each session consists of ‘real talk’ about bowel movements). Love Amaluna and Caite!*
Caitlin is extremely intelligent and a master at her craft. She’s been working with me on some sleep issues and I’ve seen improvement in just a few visits. Overall it is just a great experience every time I work with her. As a fellow natural health practitioner, I can’t recommend her enough. Thanks for all your help Caitlin!*
I just had my first experience with acupuncture and it was absolutely incredible! Caitlin instantly made me feel comfortable, and thoroughly explained every detail of what she was doing and why. I’ve already scheduled weekly reoccurring appointments. Can’t wait to go back!*
Third poking session from Caite the acuwoman and my joints feel better than they have in 10 years since I started dealing with the family genetics kicking in at around 50. Seriously this is the best money I have spent in years. Way better than Aleve. Caite’s gentle and knowing hands, ethereal music, lying on a hot pad of sorts (what is that thing called?), subtle smells of lavender. Not getting much better than Amaluna for Boulder acupuncture. Thanks Caite….wow.*
I’ve always wanted to try acupuncture from a pure curiosity stand point although I thought my body work sessions were enough to take care of myself. Caite’s work opened up a whole new world for me and was absolutely amazing! I came in with a few symptoms that I had been ignoring. Caite asked the right questions and then I shared how I had been really foggy in my head and not able to think clearly (I know.. sounds weird). After my first session with her, I immediately felt lighter. And the dietary changes she suggested played a big part in getting my sharpness back. Now I catch myself checking my nail beds and tongue to make sure they aren’t pale on a regular basis. Ha! If you don’t know what I am talking about, you will. I’m excited for my next session!*
I can’t say enough good things about Caite and my acupuncture experience. Not only is she well educated, but thorough and caring in our sessions. She pays much attention to my wellness and is knowledgeable of my overall goals to cure frequent symptoms. I started going for back pain, sleeplessness, and allergy symptoms and after just my first session I felt relief. If you are in search of relaxation, wellness education, and relief of everyday aches and pains; I couldn’t think of anyone better.*
I began Acupuncture with Caite over a year ago, and continue to see her regularly. I have seen substantial relief in my anxiety and stress levels, and even receive a sense of heightened motivation after each session. She provides the utmost comfort for her patients and is able to deliver not just relief but great recommendations that can better your day-to-day life!*
Caitlin is amazing and very talented. I had received acupuncture a few times before but had never felt the incredible results that I get with Amaluna. She has helped me with sleeping and overall relaxation. I recommend Amaluna Acupuncture to everyone I know, as Caitlin is an intuitive and wonderful healer. I HIGHLY recommend Amaluna’s Boulder acupuncture office…you will not be disappointed!*
I see Caite almost weekly for acupuncture to treat aches and pains, improve digestion, find relief from allergy symptoms or to just relax and balance my emotions. She is always caring, attentive and professional and I’d recommend Amaluna’s Boulder acupuncture clinic to anyone who’s seeking an intuitive and holistic health practitioner. Caite really opened my eyes to the healing possibilities of Chinese Medicine.*
I only have amazing things to say about Caite and the experiences I’ve had with Amaluna’s Boulder acupuncture clinic. She helped manage pain in my knee from a ski fall this year and also helped heal a really sore tendon in my elbow. I feel so amazing after each session and can not wait to get back on the table! I recommend her to anyone in need of any overall balance in wellness – which is EVERYONE! Looking forward to my next session!
Recently I was extremely sick, I went to see Caite to give me a tune up and within 48 hours I was feeling almost back to normal. If you have an injury of any kind or you are feeling ill, I recommend you go see Caite, she does amazing work and I guarantee she will make you feel like a million bucks!*
Amazing. Caitlin helped me heal after a broken rib injury, relieves arthritis in my wrists for months after a single session, and has drastically improved my immune system! I’m acupuncture-addicted.*
Caite is absolutely gifted as an acupuncturist! We worked on everything from digestion to sleep problems and I noticed improvement in both areas as quickly as one session! Her touch is gentle and effective! I can not wait for my next session.*
Caite is my first exposure to acupuncture. Her work opens up a new level of relaxation and introduces new feelings of positive energy in muscles, joints, tissues, etc., especially in once injured areas. She’s good at her work and I can tell she loves it. Thank You Caite!*
Thanks for all your care and attention. I wouldn’t even consider going to anyone else to receive the work that you do.*
I have been dealing with a knee stability issue for three years and have exhausted most standard western rehabilitation techniques, aside from surgery. I decided to give acupuncture a try having seen moderate short term success with dry needle therapy. Acupuncture brought some relief to my knee, but also shined in other aspects of my body and life. I found myself going to bed earlier and following a healthier sleeping schedule. Achy ankles in the morning occur less frequently. My seasonal allergies were easier on me this spring than any other in the past. I also learned a fair bit along the way, too! Caite creates a very welcoming and friendly environment, has a great taste in music, and seems to genuinely care about her patients and their progress. If you’re considering acupuncture, I don’t know a better place to start.*
Had some relaxing acupuncture before I had a performance and it helped get my mind in the right place to stay relaxed and calm! Great stuff!*
Great for stress and digestive issues. I always have so much energy after each session. Caite is amazing!*
Caitlin is awesome at what she does. Extremely attentive to a patient’s issues and fantastic at providing treatment. She is great at adapting treatment plans to your needs while providing nutritional and lifestyle recommendations to accommodate and see to the success of the plan. Can’t say enough about her passion for her work and the ease and comfort she brings to those who may be unfamiliar with eastern medicine.*
I have to agree with the other reviewers. Caitlin is well-informed, extremely thorough, and gifted, as if she was destined to practice acupuncture. She is ever the professional, but she doesn’t lose sight of her human side because she is caring, compassionate and charming. She is also such a good listener that sometimes I feel like she is a therapist, allowing me to vent about my struggles. I have been seeing Caitlin for many months because of a chronic condition. I always leave her office feeling relaxed and yet energized and more able to cope with my problem.*
I’ve been to a lot of acupuncturists and not all are created equal! Stepping into Amaluna I felt comfortable and seen. I was greeted by a friendly smile and a nice cup on tea to start my appointment. Caitlin took a really detailed history that I appreciated and always asks for updates to make sure I am being heard. I always feel relaxed, balanced and re-charged after my appointments. Caitlin is a passionate healer and I highly recommend Amaluna for Boulder acupuncture!*
Caite has a calm and open presence that completely eliminates any anxiety you might have about needles(!). When I roll off her table, I’m feeling rested and rejuvenated.*
Caite provides holistic care beyond merely acupuncture. I came to Caite when experiencing horrible upper abdominal pain for almost a year. Doctors diagnosed me with acid reflux and gallbladder problems yet I was not finding relief from the medicines prescribed. Caite worked with my doctors and provided me with weekly relief through acupuncture (it works!), nutrition advice, and overall wellness recommendations. We finally figured out the cause of my pain – food allergies. I have since recovered tremendously and am pain-free! If you have gastrointestinal issues – she is the wellness practitioner for you!*
Caitlin Gordon has been a terrific diagnostic acupuncturist. I came to her with a number of arthritic symptoms and she has determined the treatments that have successfully eased my condition. Caitlin is a true professional who makes you feel at ease. Her extensive knowledge and background makes you feel comfortable and in good hands at her Boulder acupuncture clinic.*
Caitlin Gordon at Amaluna Wellness is the best acupuncturist in Boulder! I visited her after not having acupuncture for several years. My shoulders, neck and back pain were constantly achy and sore and it was making me a real grump. As quickly as my first session with Caitlin I felt relief. Follow up sessions helped me manage the pain so I could feel like myself again. I’m so grateful to have found her!*
