About Acupuncture

Practiced for more than 5,000 years, the clinical science of acupuncture can safely and effectively help the body heal itself. An acupuncturist places very thin needles at various points on the body to help alleviate pain (both chronic and acute) and address various illnesses, including many ailments that have not responded to other health care modalities.

Eric Richards provides acupuncture therapy in our Horsetooth Office. Call (970) 204-0300 to schedule an appointment.

Attention Patients

Important Notice


We are open, available, and seeing patients

Although acupuncture is widely known to treat pain, it can also be beneficial to treat anxiety, stress, insomnia and work on immune support.

To comply with the Stay-at-Home Order, AFM is offering virtual visits for non-critical appointments. Since acupuncture cannot be done virtually, there are other options to treat these conditions. Call the Horsetooth Office for more information on how to schedule a virtual visit with Eric Richards.
