Becky Burgess, L.Ac. 


Thank you for visiting Vail Valley Wellness!  I'm Becky Burgess, an Eagle resident, mother of two, entrepreneur, avid listener of audiobooks, and owner of Vail Valley Wellness!  As a health-enthusiast I am on a mission to find the latest and greatest in bioenergetic medicine, bring them to the Valley, and put them all under one roof!

I am certified as a Diplomate in Chinese Medicine by the National Certification Commission of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) and I'm licensed by the state of Colorado.  I received my Master's degree in Oriental Medicine from Southwest Acupuncture College in Boulder; after which I pursued work in the nonprofit field, founding and operating the nationally recognized herbal pharmacy, Urban Herbs.  

My tenure as an acupuncturist includes work at the St. Francis Center, a resource hub for those finding their ways out of homelessness, where the focus was largely on mental healthcare. I worked as the official Acupuncturist for the University of Denver Division I Athletics Program, helping student-athletes recover faster and prevent injuries and I have been published in two scientific journals regarding the effect of acupuncture on patients with Parkinson's Disease and the challenges that come with creating a placebo acupuncture control. 

My advanced studies include intensive work in Cosmetic Acupuncture, Acu-Medical Fertility with a focus on hormonal deficiencies, Pre and Post-Surgical Support in high-level athletes, and Neuropathy and Spinal Stenosis Pain Management. One of my truest passions in the medicine lies in incorporating Chinese herbs into many treatment programs. I have found it is imperative in cases of Anxiety and Depression. In 2013, I traveled to Harbin, China to intern at the Heilongjiang University of Chinese Medicine Second Affiliated Hospital, where I saw the undeniable benefits of employing Chinese herbs in patients' treatment plans.  It fueled my passion to bring that accessibility to holistic healthcare back to the States.

Sometimes the most important thing in a whole day is the rest we take between two deep breaths.
