Boulder Acupuncture Testimonials

Kendle Butterworth

"Cameron is a true healer. She was there for me at a critical time in my post partum healing. She helped me with postpartum anxiety and insomnia. Her passionate and persistent care and belief in me was critical for my healing. I couldn't have healed without her and I appreciate her encouragement and expert guidance."
-- Kendle Butterworth - Theatre Educator + mother of three


Whitney Siegel

"It's a little impossible to describe Cam and her capabilities in only a few sentences. After the birth of my second child, I found myself in a depth and darkness I had never experienced before. I didn't know much about acupuncture but I needed help, and fast. Cam's calm, warming presence, quiet listening and nurturing, and thoughtful treatments almost immediately gave me glimpses of hope, and the healing only continued to grow from there. Even more amazing was how much she cared, checking up on me outside office hours, offering to speak to my husband to help him understand, even holding my baby during treatments when I couldn't find child care. Cam is a beautiful human, healer, and role model in more ways than words could ever describe."

Paige Doughty

"The first time I saw Cameron for acupuncture after my second baby, Alice, was born. I felt "normal" for the first time in weeks. Postpartum wasn't easy with either of my kiddos, but after Alice it was a doozy. The spikes of anxiety and feelings of spinning adrift left me unmoored and confused. Cameron's support throughout my postpartum journey was essential to my recovery. Like many of us I didn't immediately think of acupuncture as something in my postpartum tool box, and I'm so glad that I eventually did! Cameron's support as an acupuncturist, a mother, and an advisor as I've healed, weaned, and thrived again on my own are priceless."

Emma Updike

"Cameron’s breadth and depth in knowledge around the body, health and mind coupled with her uniquely authentic bedside manner make me feel so at ease and crave being in her sessions. She approaches each session with an openness to listen to what you want/need, while using her expertise to make the session exactly what it needs to be."

Kelley Pino Steen

"Cameron is pure magic. She’s so calming and knows exactly what I need before I tell her! She has been a constant in my life for over 10 years. She’s assisted me in my fertility process twice (have 2 kids!) I also like to pick her brain because she’s a master at her craft. I hope she practices for years to come!"
-- Kelley Pino Steen - Registered Nurse Certified - Obstetrics


Liz Danneels

"I have been doing acupuncture for over 20 years, and have had the pleasure of working with some of the best acupuncturists in the country, and Cameron Elmendorf is the best healer I have had, hands down. Her ability to listen, treat symptoms and underlying conditions, and balance the nervous system is at the same time approachable and deep. She has helped me to sleep better, balance my Qi, and to fix the aches and pains of aging. I feel very lucky to have found her in Boulder, CO."
-- Liz Danneels - The Fine Line Podcast


Cory Richards Acupuncture

"The ability to treat both symptoms and causes simultaneously is a vanishingly rare gift. Cam's understanding of both our physical and emotional landscapes, and how the two are bound, informs her approach in a way that I've never experienced. I am better as an athlete and a human because of our work together."
-- Cory Richards - National Geographic Photographer + Athlete + Speaker + Mental Health Advocate


Amy Maier

"Cameron came into my life in the middle of the pandemic and literally pulled me from the depths of isolation and fear. Cam is not only a gifted healer, she is an intuitive, magical, heart-centered human. Her deep compassion, sense of humor and honesty are rare. Cam has become a dear & trusted friend. She is one in a million."
-- Amy Maier - End Of Life Guide + Doula


Andrea Duffey

"I've known Cameron socially but had never seen her as a patient. Long story short, a year ago I started showing signs of shingles. I contacted her and she immediately worked me into her schedule (within 24 hrs). From that day forward she has been my go-to person for all my medical needs. I've been managing an autoimmune disease for over 10 years and have worked with a number of alternative doctors in the Boulder area, and I have never felt better than I do now, under Cameron's watch. She is truly a healer and the most compassionate, supportive and knowledgeable person I've worked with. She is so much more than an acupuncturist and I could not recommend her more."
-- Andrea Duffey


"I am so fortunate to have been referred to Cam by my doctor of physical therapy. Cam has not only helped me through ankle, back and shoulder injuries, but has also provided incredible support for stress/anxiety, challenges with sleep, and everything from recurring gut issues to viral infections and COVID-19. Not only is she an amazing practitioner, but she is a great listener, a deeply caring human being and a champion of all things YOU. She also collaborates incredibly well with others in both Eastern and Western medicine. To top it off, our sessions are fun, relaxing and enjoyable—a rare experience in any clinical setting. I simply couldn’t ask for a better acupuncturist and friend, and am so lucky to be one of her patients."

Heather Irmiger

"As a professional athlete, I put my body through an extreme amount of stress and challenge, and am always looking for ways to regain balance, optimize my health and help my performance. I have been visiting Cameron since summer 2011, and have experienced many noticeable changes. Among them, acutely, treatments have helped to boost my immune system to fight against illness. With my long-term health goals, I have gained greater hormonal balance, and have seen great improvements in dealing with jet-lag, sleep issues, mental well-being, and recovery. Every treatment is warm, kind, and full of positive-energy and I know my performance can only benefit!"
-- Heather Irmiger - Professional XC Mountain Bike Racer + Mom


"Since first seeing Cameron, my quality of life has improved immensely. I have a greater sense of well being, and feel confident that even when I don’t know what is wrong, Cameron will know exactly what to do to get me back to optimal health. Not only is she one of the most grounded, sincere and present people that I know, but her genuine concern for her patients sets the bar. She is a true healer, and our community is lucky to have her."
-- Meegan Schanning - Licensed Aesthetician, Alma Esthestics



"The first person I contact when I'm injured, ill, tweaked, overwhelmed and in need to be centered is Cameron. Her intuitive response and thorough treatment is always accurate, consistent and transforms what could be tragic into magic."
-- Abbey Smith - Climber + Writer + Producer



"A few years ago, I found myself recovering from both a full knee reconstruction in one leg, and a serious nerve injury in the other leg. Although I have never been a big fan of needles, I decided to give acupuncture a try. Cameron came very highly recommend in the healing community of Boulder. She quickly helped get me back on my feet, and back out in the mountains working again. Thanks Cam!"
-- Fredrik Marmsater - Adventure Sports Photographer



"The opportunity to work with Cam is a gift. I have a knack for pushing my body and mind through exercise (like most in Boulder) and/or tasks, responsibilities, work and life. Taking time to get on Cam’s table is an opportunity to reset the mind and body from those rigors I place on myself. She was able to work with me in the physical sense through injury and recovery, as well as grounding me when travels got the better of my stress levels. I am grateful for every minute spent with her healing ability."
-- Krissy Moehl - Ultra Runner + Author


Scott Hall

"The inevitable result for someone that likes living on the edge is that eventually you fall off. When all the King's horses & men fail, Cameron puts me back together again. More than just a very competent bio-mechanic, she's a sounding board, confidant, and co-author of your well being. Her own trials and tribulations as an athlete give her a unique understanding of sports related health and the process of healing. Cam is an integral part of my healthcare strategy & a reassuring safety net for my occasional crash & burn."
-- Scott Hall - Skier + Musician + Author + Societal Deviant


"After feeling completely tapped out after the birth of my second child, Cameron revived not just my physical being, but tapped into an essence of myself I had somehow let flow away over the years. The power of her nurturing presence, her connection to what my body and mind most needed, and those powerful little needles and tuning forks righted my sails. The best gift I've ever given myself was a year of pre-scheduled acupuncture appointments."
-- Heidi Knapp


Michelle Filoia Lazar

"Cameron is masterful at providing treatments of various medical conditions. She listens, nurtures and dedicates herself to understanding the cause of symptoms. Through her remarkable practice, Cameron has consistently restored balance to my body, mind and spirit. I have been a patient since 2006 and will continue to entrust her with my care in the years to come."

Majka Burhardt

"Cameron has a strong and compassionate practice that fully supports athletes and other hardworking bodies, so that whether I've beat my body up by climbing or typing, Cameron knows how to integrate balance back into my system. I appreciate her thorough approach to health and well being and it inspires me every time I visit. It is important to me to work with someone who understands what I do to my body and with my body -- Cameron is this person."

Frank Pickell

"Cameron combines an incredible athletic background and knowledge of the active body with a very easy going and compassionate doctor's touch. She has helped me recover from numerous sports related injuries. There is nobody I would rather see when my body can't keep up with my lifestyle."

She also has the athletic experience, insight born of compassion, and tools acquired through disciplined practice - to unlock the body's healing potential. As an athlete and an author, Cameron has helped me heal injuries, find balance, and stay sane in a challenging world..."

"I love the treatments from Cameron because they are unique in integrating mind, body, spirit. The combination of the Acutonics with precise and meaningful acupuncture has made a significant improvement in both my physical health and sense of well being. I intend to stay with Cameron for long term health management."
-- Angela Olsgard - Owner Angie Star Jewelry


"Cameron is the best! My foot hurt, really hurt. The doctors could suggest no remedy. Cameron listened, made herself available to treat me and the condition improved. I continue to see her as needed and recommend her services without reservation."
