Maplebrook Acupuncture Clinic is a springboard to educate the community concerning alternative therapies in healthcare as well as overall wellness. As a clinic we bring self-awareness to those wanting to take back their responsibility of maintaining optimum health. In doing so, we work with each individual patient to find the root of the pathology and correct it. At Maplebrook, one of our missions is to educate others as to when and what treatment method will best suit the patient in their time of need, while co-managing each patient with their primary care physician. We work as a team with other healthcare professionals to get the best results possible, as fast as possible.
Most US acupuncturists treat patients on tables in individual cubicles. This is not traditional in Asia, where acupuncture usually occurs in an open community setting. In our clinic we focus on using “distal” points (below the knee and elbow, and on the head and neck) so that patients can remain fully clothed during treatment. Community acupuncture clinics primarily use recliners rather than treatment tables, which many patients find more relaxing.
We use recliners in a large, quiet, soothing space. Treating patients in a community setting has many benefits. For example, it’s easy for friends and family members to come in for treatment together. What is more, the style of acupuncture we practice allows patients to keep their needles in as long as they choose. Though the minimum treatment time is 45 minutes, our community acupuncture setting allows people to stay as long as they would like, sometimes up to 4 hours. Some people fall asleep, and awaken feeling surprisingly refreshed. Most people learn after a few treatments when they feel “done.”
For those that prefer or require an acupuncture treatment that takes place in a private setting, we also offer individual acupuncture sessions. To learn more about Individual Acupuncture, click here.
Most US acupuncturists also see only one patient per hour and charge $60 to $175 per treatment. Our community acupuncture model, the traditional approach in Asia, allows us to see multiple patients an hour. That way, we can make acupuncture affordable and still make a living ourselves. All of that said, we still spend time a good deal of time talking with each patient, going over individual medical records, and asking relevant questions. Our diagnostic skills are extremely refined, and help us decide how to treat you as an individual. Our charges are based on a sliding scale ($30 – $65) per treatment. You decide what you can afford.
Help us spread the word. Let your friends, family, and coworkers know about us! Feel free to take plenty of cards and flyers at your next visit to help us get the word out about our affordable acupuncture clinic. Let them know there are alternatives out there!

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: Tuina, (Chinese massage), Eastern nutrition, moxibustion, cupping, electric stimulation, guasha, and auriculotherapy.
Julianne decided to pursue a career in Traditional Chinese Medicine after dealing with years of 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.
