Dedicated to Helping People Heal Naturally
Ryan Powell, BS, MSOM, LAc
Licensed Acupuncturist and Herbalist
I am an experienced and honest acupuncturist and herbalist serving Grand Junction and the Grand Valley. I am excited about my profession because I know of no other medicine more powerful than regular acupuncture sessions combined with appropriate nutritional support. When the nervous system is stimulated to provide electricity and neurotransmitters for the nourishment of the body, it literally heals itself. Results are profound, and often permanent with occasional periodic maintenance. I am both excited and honored to be a part of such a rich 4,000-year-old medicine! I believe with my whole heart that the service I provide is valuable because my patients tell me so, and I can literally see the difference in their eyes!
I decided to become an acupuncturist and practitioner of traditional Chinese medicine when I saw a need for quality, competent, natural healthcare in our country. I had family members who had struggled with health issues despite their dedication to Allopathic Medicine. For some of them, one medication was simply followed by another without any significant improvement. After being educated in nutrition and beginning my study of medicinal plants and foods, I began to believe that the reason so many people failed to get better was that they did not have the nutrition, and therefore raw materials for their bodies to heal. We in fact are what we eat, think, and feel! It was at this point in 2004 when I began my four-year degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine at Southwest Acupuncture College in Boulder, CO.
As a practitioner of traditional medicine, I am dedicated to providing the most meaningful, clinically effective sessions possible. I enjoy getting to know my patients, as I hope you enjoy getting to know me. My personal promise to you is to “walk my talk,” stay educated on the latest acupuncture and herbal research and keep bringing you my best on a daily basis.
When I am not giving acupuncture or working on Acupuncture Solutions, I enjoy exploring the Western Slope by hiking, biking, and camping. A lover of music, guitar, and animals, I do my best to maintain a balanced life and to “stay human!

I began seeing Ryan for migraine headaches a year ago. I came into the office with a headache that day, and left without one. After a short round of acupuncture sessions, I found that I had far fewer migraines. If I do get a headache, it is also much less severe. He is a knowledgeable and very capable acupuncturist, and I have referred several friends and family members already!

I want to encourage anyone who is interested in natural pain relief to try Ryan Powell and his acupuncture. I have suffered with low back pain and sciatica for over a decade. I rode horses for most of my life and evidently did some damage to my back over the years. I got relief after the very first acupuncture visit. After receiving 3 treatments in 2 weeks, I began seeing Ryan for maintenance treatments. Now, I go in for several sessions only a few times a year when I have a flare-up of back pain. Seeing Ryan for acupuncture is simply the best medicine for my back pain that I have ever found.

Ryan Powell, LAc has made it possible for me to function in this world again. I have over 3 TBI’s, or traumatic brain injuries from automobile accidents and falls. I have been to over 10 acupuncturists already. I got results with most of the other doctors, but nothing like what I experience with Ryan. He uses a variety of techniques and tailors his treatments to the person he is treating. I can honestly say Ryan has kept me out of the hospital a number of times. I do not know what I would do without his compassion and abilities.

I have 3 collapsed discs in my back. I have had 2 back surgeries and have been on painkillers for many years. With Ryan’s expert care, I have managed to cut my pain medication in half. I have tried physical therapy, chiropractic, and massage. Traditional Chinese Medicine has helped me the most. Ryan is very caring, listens, and takes the time to explain things to me. I trust him so much I send my daughter to him as well. I highly recommend acupuncture and Ryan Powell!

Ryan was able to stop my terrible hot flashes! My hormones are more balanced, and my mood has improved too. My lab work verified that my estrogen levels are more normal. I even have more energy and have lost some weight!
