ACUPUNCTURE OF LOS ALAMOS NEWS
After 13 years serving the good people of Los Alamos, current owner of the Acupuncture Center of Los Alamos, Dr. Henry Ahlefelder is retiring, and new owner Dr. Aimee Price is taking the helm.
For the past 6 years, Drs. Ahlefelder and Price, have worked together to provide high quality and effective acupuncture treatments. Ahlefelder says, “Since joining our practice Dr. Price has made a major contribution to our Los Alamos community. Her ever expanding patient base is testament to both her skill level, and her ability to make people feel comfortable with treatment. I have no doubt she will continue to grow the practice as well as be a cornerstone of the medical community in Los Alamos for many years to come.”
While Dr. Ahlefelder may be leaving Los Alamos, he still has plans to continue reaching out and helping people. For over 20 years he has taught seminars and workshops in Europe, and plans to return to that as soon as Covid restrictions lift. Several years ago he began bringing practitioners to India to help them gain experience by treating underserved communities. That has expanded to his involvement in building schools for working children, helping to break the cycle of generational illiteracy.
The Acupuncture Center of Los Alamos will continue to share office space with Los Alamos Chiropractic Center and Drs. Charles Lenz and Nancy Savioa.
“After knowing and working with Dr. Price for the past several years, I am delighted that she will be staying with the Acupuncture Center subsequent to the retirement of Dr. Ahlefelder. She has been a positive and welcomed member of our local community as well for the last 13 years. Dr. Price pursues excellence and proficiency in the art of acupuncture, and we are fortunate that she will continue her practice with our team of health care practitioners”, Dr. Savoia said.
Aimee began her career in healthcare more than 20 years ago, practicing massage therapy. She then went on to earn her Master’s degree in Acupuncture from Bastyr University in Seattle, Washington. In 2015, she earned a second Master’s degree and became a licensed Doctor of Oriental Medicine in New Mexico. Aimee is State and Nationally Board Certified.
Price enjoys working one-on-one with patients as well as in conjunction with numerous other healthcare professionals including chiropractors, naturopaths, MD’s, physical therapists, massage therapists, and yoga instructors to help patients approach their healthcare holistically. Because of its effectiveness, acupuncture is becoming more common and integrated with Western medicine practices.
Acupuncture can boost your immunity, lessen common aches and pains, increase stamina, improve digestive and respiratory function, balance hormones, and bolster your mood. It stimulates your body’s own intrinsic healing responses. Treating our bodies well when we are young and healthy, help maintain these built-in systems as we age, allowing us to be active, and to heal quickly from trauma or infections. But life’s wear and tear can take a toll, leaving us more susceptible to injury and illness. This is where acupuncture and herbal medicine can help, by stimulating and boosting our intrinsic healing responses.
The Acupuncture Center of Los Alamos is located at 2610 Trinity Dr, Suite 14. To schedule an appointment with Dr. Aimee Price, please call (505) 663-1339. Most major insurances are accepted and affordable payment options are available when acupuncture is not covered by insurance.
