Acupuncture/ Oriental Medicine Practitioner position now open at Harmonizing Healthcare Clinic

We are looking for a positive, self-assured Oriental medicine practitioner who loves people and is passionate about Oriental Medicine. This is an exciting opportunity for a heart-centered person with a natural talent for caring for others and guiding their care in a direction to increase quality of life. You will get to live in a beautiful mountain community with access to hundreds of hiking trails, a ski resort, and a rich, caring community. Experience as an acupuncturist for at least 2 years is preferred. Our goal is to help you have a fulfilling, supportive, happy career. Through working together, we will be able to help more people live the life they are wanting with less pain and higher well-being. We will provide all you need to succeed, including your marketing, all the clinic supplies, the receptionist, herbs, supplements, and so forth. All you need to do is walk through the door with a positive caring attitude and do what you do best!

Our mission at Harmonizing Healthcare is to optimize the health, well-being, and quality of life of every person that walks through the door. The co-owner and acupuncturist Brittany Petrick was a Registered Nurse for over 9 years and found that healthcare needed more focus on preventative care and treating health concerns at the very root to truly make an impact on each individual life. Therefore, we dig deep into each individual life, looking at their diet, lifestyle choices, emotions, and social support system. They are given a Traditional Chinese Medicine diagnosis and then emailed written treatment plans, giving them the option to make necessary dietary changes, lifestyle modifications, Chinese herbs, supplements, and acupuncture to guide them back into balance. Our clinic has a full granular pharmacy to make customized herbal formulas, supplements, pill form Chinese herbs, and retail space. We serve all ages, from infants to geriatrics, and make the clinic a very family friendly environment. You will work with another Oriental medicine practitioner who is very passionate about this medicine and bridging this medicine to the Western world, treating both cash-pay and insurance-based patients. A large part of the patient population is veterans. The clinic provides a supportive environment with a caring receptionist who does all scheduling and payment for patients and an office manager that is in charge of the retail space, ordering, and marketing.

Work 20-30 hours/week, 4 days/week, eventually more if needed. Minimally 2 evening shifts (until 7pm) are required.
