House of Qi Acupuncture
My name is Lauren Jordan and I'm a licensed acupuncturist located in Loveland, Colorado.
I have been practicing acupuncture since August of 2019. I have taken my 4 years of acupuncture school and combined them with the last couple years of practice, to develop skills to help patients achieve their health goals. I have treated a broad array of health concerns and have found I can provide the best support for these conditions:
Injuries ( sports, car accident, etc. )
Sleep disturbances (more acute than long standing)
Menstrual pain/ PMS
When you come in for your first visit, we will go over your health history in detail. Acupuncture is a whole body medicine. Its important to know if your sleep is impacted by your pain, its important to know if you have chronic constipation and low back pain, its important to know if you have chronic migraines and neck pain. As the saying goes, everything is connected. Part of my job is finding these connections and treating the imbalance that may be driving your symptoms.
I will ask about your diet, digestion, bowels, energy, stress, sleep, lifestyle and reproductive system. Asking questions about these systems help me identify the imbalances within the meridian system. A meridian is a communication line on the body that corresponds to an organ system. Meridians are connected to the areas of the body they pass through feeding the cells, tissues, organs and glands along the way. I was trained in school to know where these meridians are, where the acupuncture points are located along the meridian and what signs/ symptoms correlate with them.
After I collect a health history, I will check your wrist pulses and look at your tongue. Your pulses on your wrist correlate to your organ systems. I am feeling for the width and depth of the vessel. This tells me about qi, blood, yin, yang, excess and deficiency's, which help me form a diagnosis in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Your tongue is a map of the body, I look at the tongue body color, coating, presence of cracks or scalloped edges, as this helps confirm a diagnosis. Pretty cool, huh?
Needles are the primary tool I use in practice but certain conditions respond to additional adjuncts. Adjuncts are: fire cupping, moxibustion, gua sha, electro-stimulation, and plum blossom. There is more information on these in my FAQ's section. I also use an infrared spectrum heat lamp which is super helpful if your pain responds well to heat.
I will offer recommendations on diet, lifestyle, herbal therapy (topical or oral) and supplements if it is appropriate for your conditions.
Conditions I do not treat:
crohn's, UC, diverticulitis, SIBO
