During the past 11 years Larry Welsh has treated me for migraine headaches, arthritis, back pain, menopausal symptoms, and fatigue. I’ve found his acupuncture treatments to be very helpful in lessening my aches and pains and giving me more energy to cope with my demanding life. He is a very caring and compassionate practitioner and always seems genuinely interested in my well-being.

At twelve years old, I was diagnosed with juvenile arthritis. Managing the pain required me to consume up to twelve aspirin per day, which still didn’t always eliminate the pain and swelling. Three years later, I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease in my large intestine. Taking aspirin, Tylenol and ibuprofen for the arthritis became a problem because they caused my large intestine to bleed. The more the Crohn’s would bleed, the worse the arthritis got. The worse the arthritis got, the more pain medicine I would take. No Crohn’s drug helped. I never managed to attain remission for either disease, and it became a vicious and depressing cycle.
The arthritis pain in my feet had become so severe, I had to do something. Walking was challenging and no amount of pain medicine helped. I decided to try acupuncture.
I promised myself that I would commit to a weekly visit for ten weeks. If he could make my feet feel better, I would continue. Long before the ten weeks were up, my feet began to feel better. Shockingly, the Crohn’s began to get better as well—less pain and less bleeding. I was convinced acupuncture was the path for me.
It has been nine years since I began doing acupuncture. Treating the pain and swelling of arthritis was my original goal, which I have achieved. I have not taken pain medicine for arthritis since. It is totally managed with acupuncture and I don’t even have weekly treatments anymore. Additionally, though, acupuncture has helped me achieve remission of the Crohn’s and managed my pain after two surgeries. I don’t really understand how it works, I just know that it does!

When my kids were young I found myself particularly susceptible to and suffering from a series of ailments that had really wrung me out: persistent and recurrent sinus infections, regular bouts of cold and flu, general disrepair. I never seemed to be able to fully recover. Larry helped me regain health and balance with an artful and astute combination of acupuncture, dietary advice and Chinese herbs; his kindness and compassion were also great components of my healing. I will be forever grateful.

Larry Welsh treated me for stress and related ailments during a four-year period in which we lived in Boulder. Throughout this time, Larry was kind and supportive. Through regular acupuncture treatments, he was able to re-balance my system and allow me to cope with my daily challenges. I deeply valued his professionalism and dedication and wish that I could continue my treatments from our new home.

I have been a faithful patient of acupuncture for more than 15 years. I have always believed in its power to heal and maintain our bodies and minds, but a specific episode brought this into clear focus.
A few years ago I sustained some horrific injuries after falling through a skylight to a concrete patio: I suffered multiple hairline fractures on the right side of my skull and compression fractures of four vertebrae. Having been Larry Welsh’s steady patient at the time, when I was released from hospital care, I went directly to see him, to try to heal as quickly as possible. Larry treated my spinal fractures (even though I was in a body cast), the dizziness I was feeling because of my injured inner ear, and worked to facilitate the healing in my skull. When I checked in with my orthopedist for X-rays, he was confounded at the speed at which my vertebrae and skull bones were healing. He was simply astonished. The work that my terrific acupuncturist did to encourage the micro-circulation in my bones played an indispensable part in that sped-up process. I wouldn’t be as healthy today without it. I’d be an acupuncture adherent even without the injuries, and I still go regularly, because it helps maintain my health and well-being.

Acupuncture, herbal medicine, and nutrition have had a huge impact on my life. From surgery for a broken wrist, to strengthening my immune system to travel around the world, I am grateful to have the proper guidance of Larry’s skill and knowledge. My body and mind both respond to and feel strong, energetic, and healthy from these long-proven treatments.

Around my freshman year of high school was when I first began getting acne. Even with the use of prescription and over the counter medicines my facial acne has progressively gotten worse to the point where I would wake up with several new pimples everyday. Prescriptions as strong as retina a micro were unable to do me justice so my Dad recommended taking a more natural and internal route. This is where Larry was able to help and provided me with a combination of supplements based on the type of acne I had described to him. I continued my topicals even though I had new break outs each day and just added in his regimen consisting only of natural pills. After several weeks I finally woke up one morning without a new pimple which had not happened in almost a year! As I continued on Larry’s regimen of supplements and dietary guidelines, my acne decreased completely and I was able to stop all treatments. If you are looking for an effective, non-irritating acne treatment that works from within, I highly recommend giving Larry’s holistic route a try.

Six years ago I came to the acupuncture office of Larry Welsh seriously ill. For months I had been experiencing severe stomach and abdominal pain, extreme fatigue and a rapid loss of weight. After numerous doctor visits and countless medical procedures, I still did not have an accurate diagnosis. A friend suggested I try acupuncture, but I was very skeptical and said absolutely not! As my symptoms persisted, I was desperate for some relief and decided to try acupuncture. After just a few treatments, my pain was subsiding and my energy was returning. Through the healing power of acupuncture, I made a full recovery. Thank you Larry, for giving me back my life.

Dear friends, I have been seeing Larry Welsh for acupuncture since 2006 when I received the diagnosis of breast cancer. He has been exceedingly kind, very attentive to my requests for information and quite generous in his treatment time. I do know that his treatments prior to my lumpectomy and during my month of radiation helped me recover much more quickly and my life has become more healthy because of much of his advice and care. I have continued to see him regularly since that time and he has continued to provide me with excellent acupuncture treatments, supplements, and much kindness. I view Larry as my primary healthcare provider.
