Rebecca LaMaack Schwartz, DC
I moved to Colorado 12 years ago after graduating from chiropractic school in Minnesota at Northwestern Health Sciences University. Having had unique exposure to chiropractic as an integral part of a multidisciplinary approach during my schooling, I have worked hard to create a clinic that embraces the best of both allopathic and alternative medicine. I am passionate about helping people change their lives by leaving their pain behind them and humble enough to know that chiropractic is often only a piece of the puzzle. I believe that patients really win when providers from many disciplines are contributing and collaborating to address what can be complex pain syndromes.
My team works hard to address the needs of our patients with chiropractic, acupuncture, cupping, massage, nutrition and functional testing. We start with the least invasive approach to address pain and restore function. But we are also willing and able to manage them through more aggressive treatments when appropriate such as imaging, spinal injections, orthopedic or neurosurgical intervention. We respect, incorporate and work alongside mainstream providers, delivering patient centered care that traverses the boundaries of complementary and allopathic medicine in the patients’ best interest.
Julianne Ambrosia, Acupuncturist
Julianne Ambrosia, L.Ac., Dipl. OM, is a Licensed Acupuncturist and Herbalist in the state of Colorado and is Nationally Board Certified in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM). Julianne has also received her Clean Needle Technique certification for the Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine Commission, (AAOM). She is a professional member of the Acupuncture Association of Colorado. Julianne earned her Master’s Degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from the Colorado School of Traditional Chinese Medicine.The four year curriculum at this school consists of over 2800 hours of training in acupuncture, herbal medicine, practical clinical experience, energetic exercise, and adjunct therapies which include: Tui na, (Chinese massage), Eastern nutrition, moxibustion, cupping, electric stimulation, guasha, and auriculotherapy.
Julianne decided to pursue a career in Traditional Chinese Medicine after being struggling with migraines, chronic pain, digestive issues, and ovarian cysts. Western medicine offered some relief from her symptoms, but she was still living in pain on a daily basis. Her medical doctor suggested she try acupuncture and Oriental medicine. After a few months of treatment she, not only, found relief from her many symptoms, but she realized that her body was healing itself. It was then that she wanted to be able to help others regain their bodies and lives back.
Her treatment philosophy is to treat the whole person, addressing all aspects of her patients’ lives. By forming a team with her patients, they are able to bring balance to all areas of the patients’ life, physical/mental/spiritual health, diet, and lifestyle habits.
