Acupuncturist

Kati Johns, BSN, M.Ac., L.Ac.

Kati Johns, BSN, M.Ac., L.Ac. is a Licensed Acupuncturist and also prescribes Chinese herbs. She spent twelve years working as a registered nurse where she gained experience in pediatrics, geriatrics, trauma and intensive care. During her time as a nurse she saw both the power and restrictions of Western Medicine and became determined to bridge the gap between allopathic and holistic modalities.

This idea led to her decision to go back to school for acupuncture, and she is thrilled to now be working in a mixed modality environment. Kati takes the time to really get to know patients and determine the root cause of disease. She believes in the Chinese Medical theory that treating the root is the key to obtaining optimal health. Because of her Western background and Chinese Medical experience, she treats a wide variety of ages and conditions. She also believes that Chinese Medicine is a wonderful preventative medicine and can be used to help maintain a healthy life. Kati spent over 15 years training horses and highly values time in nature, having spent most of her life in Denver, backpacking and skiing in the Rocky Mountains. She now spends time not at work with her family, including her one-year old son and dogs.
