Evergreen Medical Acupuncture is a team of experienced Acupuncturists working under Dr. Christina Fick (DAOM). Dr. Fick has been practicing since 2009 and she ranks in the top 1% of Acupuncturists in the nation. She holds two Master’s Degrees and a Clinical Doctorate. Dr. Fick has treated over 15,000 patients. Dr. Fick’s clinic is one of the busiest acupuncture clinics in the state of Colorado.
Dr. Fick has two amazing accomplishments:
Mastering Medical Acupuncture which is an anatomy-based treatment.
And the Flick Technique™ which is Dr. Fick’s unique needle insertion technique which is painless and more effective than traditional guide-tube needling.
In Traditional Chinese Acupuncture, the goal is to balance Qi, or vital energy. With Medical Acupuncture, however, the goal is to stimulate nerves and blood vessels by using specialized needling techniques. The variety of techniques has been proven to stimulate certain areas of the brain, boost the immune system, relax or stimulate organ function, and treat pain according to western pathology. We use an electrical stimulation device with Medical Acupuncture to target the release of certain hormones and neurotransmitters. We treat the physical body but also the emotional/spiritual aspect of one’s well being through these neurotransmitters and brain chemistry.
Dr. Fick worked and lived in China and worked in western hospitals. She integrates the use of functional medicine and blood tests, along with xrays/MRI and physical examination to help better diagnose and treat patients. Dr. Fick has extensive functional medicine training. She completed the series of one of the most challenging functional medicine training available to Doctors only through world-renowned, Apex Energetics. Patients at EMA tend to see results quickly as the combination of integrating medicines ensures all aspects of the patients’ health and well-being are addressed as a whole and both symptoms and core causes are treated.
