I first became interested in Acupuncture and Chinese medicine over 15 years ago while living and working in China. During that time, I interned in a variety of acupuncture clinics. This experience transformed the way I thought about medicine and healing. Upon my return to the US, I entered a three-year program in acupuncture and Chinese herbs at the Seattle Institute of Oriental Medicine. I have been in private practice since graduating in 1997. I am a licensed acupuncturist in the state of Colorado, and nationally certified by the NCAAOM (National Commission of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine). I am currently on the faculty at Southwest Acupuncture College in Boulder.
“We are so thankful for finding Julie Smith and her approach to treating my son's challenges instead of just treating his symptoms. I truly feel that that my son would still be struggling if we
had stuck with the Western medicine approach we were following before we met Julie. We felt horrible about administering the medications, including steroids, and now we instead offer him natural
tinctures and minerals. With Julie's help we have realized we do have options to treatment.”
