Reconnecting with wellness.





Rocky Mountain Acupuncture and Wellness Center and Monica Laurila seeks to reconnect you with your natural state of wellness through acupuncture and other complementary healing modalities.

By finding the perfect treatment that your body seeks, we will be able to eliminate the source of your discomfort and rekindle a state of abundant health.

When our Qi (energy) is out of balance due to daily stressors in our modern, high speed world, it’s easy for our bodies to fall out of alignment. A disharmony leads to any ailment — large or small. And it is this disharmony or dis-ease that we seek to truly alleviate and eliminate.

Acupuncture is one of the oldest and most reliable medical practices in the world — its use dates back beyond 4,000 years and has been used to effectively rebalance the mind, body and spirit. Acupuncture also triggers endorphins and enkephalins which reduce pain. It increases energy and blood flow to affected areas and enhances the overall balance of the entire human body. A state of balance is optimal — after all, a balanced immune system promotes longevity and health.
