Joshua Jimenez, LAc
Originally from the Southwest, my journey into Traditional Chinese Medicine began in 2003 with a broken arm that was healed in two weeks by the renowned Dr. Huang Pao Chin. From there, a student-mentor relationship developed. Ten years after that, I began my graduate education at Southwest Acupuncture College in Boulder, Colorado. It was at SWAC where I learned the more formal methods of Chinese medicine. I gleaned knowledge from skilled teachers like Dr. LiLu who taught me Tuina, a version of Chinese massage that works on very few distal points while putting more emphasis on areas closer to the spine and slight manipulation of the spine itself. I learned the art of trigger points, or dry needling, as well as wet needling with procaine and saline from Michael Young.
I graduated SWAC in 2018 and continue to consult with Dr. Pao, Michael, and Dr. Lilu whenever the need arises.
I approach dis-ease with optimism, perseverance and patience. I customize my treatments to each patient’s personal needs, ensuring a pace that is both safe and comfortable.
My skills in acupuncture, Tuina, moxabustion, and herbs combined with my open communication style allow for individualized treatment with optimal results. Since 2001, I've been a student of Tai Qi, Qi Gong and Kung Fu and often incorporate movements as exercises for my patients.
I am a licensed acupuncturist in the state of Colorado and am certified as a Diplomate of Acupuncture by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM).
In addition to practicing Traditional Chinese Medicine principles and philosophies in my personal life, I enjoy exploring the mountains of the Southwest all year long with my son and dog.
