Elena is the acupuncturist and counselor I’d been hoping to find for decades. Her healing work has surely changed my health, and my inner world. She is wise, skilled, thorough, compassionate, insightful, soulful, multi-talented and has the kind of bedside manner and professional demeanor that sets an example for how every practitioner ought to be. Elena is a rare gem in the world of the healing arts. Consider yourself fortunate if you have the opportunity work with her.

Elena Giuini is not only an extremely gifted acupuncturist. She is also a wise, deeply knowledgeable mind-body facilitator who weaves the resolution of somatic symptoms with consciousness.

I first came to see Elena seeking help in dealing with stress, digestive problems and headaches. As our sessions continued I noticed that not only were my symptoms improving but several other aspects of my life and health were improving as well. Elena’s caring support and compassionate understanding has led me through several major transitions in life. I have grown spiritually and emotionally with the help of her skilled and subtle yet powerful treatments. Elena’s work is a blessed gift to anyone fortunate enough to be her patient.

Elena has been the answer to a prayer. What has amazed me is how quickly my body has responded to every acupuncture treatment I have received. I came in for a treatment while in the early stages of a head cold. I could feel my sinuses drain while I was still in the middle of my treatment. I have a very long history of chest colds that turn into bronchitis and that do not respond to traditional medical treatment. So when I was experiencing some chest congestion several weeks later, I made an appointment with Elena immediately. In only one treatment all of my symptoms were gone! Elena has helped me with health issues that I didn’t even know were treatable with acupuncture, including a numb spot on my abdomen that I’ve had for over 14 years (the result from two cesarean sections). Elena is warm, caring, understanding, knowledgeable, and does a wonderful job minimizing any potential discomfort during treatment. She takes the time at every appointment to fully understand what is happening in your life, physically and emotionally, and tailors each treatment session to address those issues. I cannot say enough in praise of Elena and I am truly grateful for all of the help she has given me and continues to give me.

I love coming to Elena for acupuncture. Her office is beautiful and serene. And, I appreciate that she spends the entire hour with me during the treatment. I have received a lot of acupuncture over the years, so I am discerning and I completely trust the treatments that I receive from her. Every session is different, depending on what symptoms are most present. Elena is deeply intuitive + practically trained and is outstanding at really understanding what is really going on and how to address it. Also, Elena brings her previous training as a Somatic Psychotherapist to her work so I really am receiving a great combination of acupuncture & therapy. And, every time I arrive, she offers me the perfect depth and/or gentle treatments plus a psycho-spiritual explanation behind the treatment. This really helps me while I am receiving the needles plus helps me integrate the session afterward. Elena is a treasure of a woman and her treatments are an essential part of my self-care!

One treatment with Elena can change my whole world. She has helped me navigate chronic pain, easing my symptoms and giving me invaluable insight into my body’s deeper messages. Her approach is so warm, knowledgeable, and truly encompasses the WHOLE – she tracks what’s going on physically, emotionally, and even on deeper spiritual levels – and knows the right time and place to address each. Elena cares so deeply about her patients, and I can feel it on and off the table. I’m so grateful to have Elena on my support team.

I have been a client of Elena for a few months, and my wrists/forearms haven’t been this pain free in years. I’m in the tech field, and sit in front of a computer for way too many hours a day… and all that typing has taken its toll. It has gotten to the point where my hands locked up and I couldn’t type because of the pain. Elena’s presence, first and foremost, put my fears at rest. Her tactics of interviewing and questioning to truly understand the problems, and then her method of addressing the issues in a 100% focused manner is amazing. I’ve been to a few other acupuncturists, and never before have I felt as much personal and individual attention. I would recommend Elena to anyone looking for acupuncture in the Boulder area.
