Crys found her way to acupuncture through her own healing journey. After going through a major surgery and experiencing a long difficult healing process, she was introduced to natural healing for the first time. It was the spark that eventually led her to become a natural healer.
She began her education at Front Range Community College, with a focus on Holistic Health and Energy Medicine. Being in a group of healers had a profound effect upon her and she soon knew that she had found her tribe. For the first time in her life she was given space to express her intuition and empathy, she flourished.
She became a certified Reflexologist as well as an energetic healer in the arts of Reiki, Jin Shin, Healing Touch, and Bach remedies. She also is experienced in Biofeedback, using SCIO, Indigo, and LifeSystems.
Then she was introduced to acupuncture. She was a huge skeptic at first and eastern healing methods challenged her belief system. It only took one treatment to change her mind and set her on a path to become an acupuncturist.
She earned her Master’s degree in Acupuncture from South West Acupuncture, in Boulder, Colorado. There, she became passionate about TCM, Oriental bodywork, and energetic techniques, such as Qi Gong, and I Ching.
After the incredible joy of getting to stay home and raise three wonderful sons, she now focuses on bringing the gift of healing to others.

La Stone Therapy (Hot Stone)
La Stone Therapy was founded by Mary Nelson in 1994 and is a contemporary approach to alternating temperatures in bodywork. It capitalizes on traditional practices with a current approach. 54 heated basalt stones, 18 marble stones and 1 room temperature are the medium. The hot and cold temperatures are the message. This “vascular gymnastics” of the circulatory system assists the body in self-healing. La Stone Therapy is a massage and a detoxification treatment, an immune system function booster, an energy and reflexology treatment, a deep tissue healing treatment and a sanctuary for the soul.

Acupuncture involves the insertion of very thin needles through your skin at strategic points on your body. A key component of traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is most commonly used to treat pain. Increasingly, it is being used for overall wellness, including stress management.
Traditional Chinese medicine explains acupuncture as a technique for balancing the flow of energy or life force — known as chi or qi (chee) — believed to flow through pathways (meridians) in your body. By inserting needles into specific points along these meridians, acupuncture practitioners believe that your energy flow will re-balance.
In contrast, many Western practitioners view the acupuncture points as places to stimulate nerves, muscles and connective tissue. Some believe that this stimulation boosts your body's natural painkillers.

Reflexology is the application of pressure to areas on the feet (or the hands). Reflexology is generally relaxing and may help alleviate stress.
The theory behind reflexology is that areas of the foot correspond to organs and systems of the body. Pressure applied to the foot is believed to bring relaxation and healing to the corresponding area of the body.
Reflexologists use foot charts to guide them as they apply pressure to specific areas. Reflexology is sometimes combined with other hands-on therapies and may be offered by chiropractors and physical therapists, among others.
Several studies indicate that reflexology may reduce pain and psychological symptoms, such as stress and anxiety, and enhance relaxation and sleep. Given that reflexology is also low risk, it can be a reasonable option if you're seeking relaxation and stress relief.
