"I was in need of another Acupuncturist and found The Medicine Tree through a Google search. I needed someone who was more attentive, caring and compassionate during my infertility journey. The minute I walked into the building I knew this was where I was supposed to be.  The receptionists are kind and welcoming and acknowledge you as soon as you enter the room.  Liz is absolutely amazing and really cares for her patients. Before every session, she checks in to see how you are feeling and refers back to your first appointment to see if we notice improvements and changes.  She really listens and has so much knowledge, not only about acupuncture but also about herbs, eastern medicine, diet, fertility, hormones and more! I could go on and on with how impressed and excited I am about finding this local gem, but we'd be here all day.  Thank you, Liz and amazing staff for coming to Golden." J.V.

Liz has been such an instrumental part of my healing process.  Her approach to acupuncture is guided by knowledge, intuition and kindness.  Liz carefully treated my anxiety with points, moxibustion, herbal medicine and therapeutic advice.  She was gentle with me but also challenged me and held me accountable for my actions. She sent me home with great ideas to practice to help me settle and feel more connected to myself and other in everyday life.  She gave me "homework"! I found her treatments so effective and valuable. I saw her once a week for a full year and my life completely transformed.  I went from shaky and filled with anxiety that shuddered throughout my whole body to a calmer more settled person.  I found that through my treatments with Liz, I was able to feel more like myself and settle into who I really was. Instead of being consumed by fear and anxiety I was able to move through my life in a more easeful and fuller way. Not only that, over my year with Liz, I was able to get off my anti-anxiety drugs and I felt amazing. She truly helped me become a person I never knew I was capable of becoming. I deeply miss my treatments with Liz. She held me with eyes of compassion, understanding and non-judgement. I highly recommend Liz as your Chinese Medicine practitioner. She is a beautiful vessel of healing light in this world.  A.W.

"I believe that in this world that we exist in, there is a purpose for everything. No matter what we do, who we meet or where we go there is some type of divine energy governing everything. In my humble experience I have found we as humans are all connected as one.  Everyone we interact with has a purpose in our life's journey. This brings me to Liz. 

I am a 58 year old disabled U.S. Marine (retired) who suffers from chronic pain.  As a lot of people I went through the usual circle of what I like to refer to as madness.  Pain control physicians, medications and chiropractic care ETC. None of this really worked for me. At my wife's suggestion I went to see Liz.  I encountered a connection to this energy source. This connection was Liz.  It is not often in this rushed and busy world we live in that we meet people that truly care.  Extraordinary people who give 100 percent of themselves.  Liz would meet with me and discuss everything that was going on in my life and would respond with a treatment that was truly divine and caring.  We are all on this planet to learn and perhaps guide each other.  Liz is in fact a teacher, guide and I believe, a spiritual healer.  There are no words that I can really find for the loving care that she provided. There is only now to thank you, Liz. Keep on spreading the loving and healing and may the Qi be forever in your favor."  R. H.
