Colorado Point Acupuncture opens in South Jeffco

A new acupuncture clinic opened recently in Littleton’s Meadows Shopping Center across the street from the former Fun City.

Skyla and Joe Hayes opened Colorado Point Acupuncture after seeing a need for it in South Jeffco. They focus on acupuncture and “its related modalities,” such as gua sha, cupping and nutritional therapies, and would recommend acupuncture for those experience pain of any sort.

“With the growing epidemic of painkillers and narcotics, it’s a great alternative,” Skyla said. “People are seeking out alternative health in general, and acupuncture is a great place to start.”

Colorado Point Acupuncture is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.
