Kris Justesen O.M.D. (Oriental Medical Doctor), L.Ac. (Licensed Acupuncturist), Dipl. Ac. and Director of Alpine Wellness Center.  I am an NCCAOM (National Commission for Certification of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine) certified Acupuncture Practitioner, who has over 30 years experience. I received acupuncture training at San Francisco College of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, followed by a doctorate (Oriental Medical Doctor) at International Institute of Oriental Medicine, Santa Fe, New Mexico, and advanced training in China and Canada.  I am licensed to practice acupuncture in Utah, California and Colorado

 Acupuncture, Oriental Herbal Medicine, Vitamins & Nutritional Supplements, and Sports Medicine are offered at Alpine Wellness Center. Injury, pain management, stress, headache, asthma, migraines, neck/back pain, and more are commonly treated.

 As a Licensed Acupuncturist and OMD, I have an advantage over other healthcare practitioners. I understand the theory and practice of Asian medicine, acupuncture points & meridian system as well as western medical theory. My knowledge of the actions of each acupuncture point provides direction in my approach to addressing dysfunction or disease of the body. Research has shown that over 93% of Trigger points fall on established Acupuncture points.

 Having added knowledge of homeopathic injectables enhances the effectiveness and  healing mechanisms for my patients. Homeopathic injections contain plants and minerals that have proven safe for over 50 years. These injections promote healing, pain relief, and reduce inflammation without side-effects.

 Besides gentle needle stimulation of an acupuncture or trigger point, there is the added benefit of FDA approved homeopathics, infused and focused directly into the site. These benefit the body on an energetic & cellular level to continue stimulation and healing with a specifically chosen homeopathic or other natural substance.

Acupuncture - vs - Acupoint Injection Therapy (AIT)

Acupuncture uses solid “Dry” needles on acupuncture points. AIT (Acupoint Injection Therapy)  is called ”Shui Zen” meaning “Wet Needle” used on acupuncture points. Both techniques are effective! Each has a therapeutic value that may be stronger with different issues affecting the body.

Acupuncture is amazing for moving blood and energy and assisting the body with constitutional issues, or issues that affect the whole functioning of the body. AIT specializes old or new injuries causing pain or spasms. AIT leaves gentle medicine derived from natural sources to nourish tissues and nerves that have been compromised and are struggling to regain their normal state of health. This medicine remains at the distressed site to assist the starved tissues to heal and alleviate pain while accelerating healing.
