Life and Work with Caitlin Gordon

Today we’d like to introduce you to Caitlin Gordon.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Caitlin. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I was inspired to study Chinese Medicine after acupuncture helped solve my chronic anxiety and insomnia. I opened my practice immediately upon graduating and have been going strong ever since. I continue to pursue education on effective and safe modalities for healing. I’ve been certified in functional medicine and will complete my doctorate in acupuncture in December. Amaluna has grown and expanded over the years and currently serves local Boulder and Denver residents as well as national clients via telemedicine.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Opening a business is never a smooth road. I often found myself making mistakes along the way and needing to correct course. There were lots of hard days where I had tough cases that weren’t improving, made expensive mistakes on insurance claims, or threw money away on SEO scams. I burnt out working too many hours with not enough breaks. The biggest lesson for me was in balancing hustle and flow. If I got discouraged, I took a break and refueled by getting out of town and putting work down for a few days. The trick is to learn to rest, not to quit. Creating a successful business is a marathon and you just need to consistently show up and put in the work. My heart is deeply invested in what I do, so having that powerful “why” kept me going on hard days.

Please tell us about Amaluna Wellness.
Amaluna Wellness is an acupuncture and functional medicine clinic that offers telemedicine nationally and in-person care in Boulder, CO. Our practice believes in safe, effective, holistic healthcare.

I specialize in treating stress, anxiety, and depression through eastern and western medicine fusion. I offer patients a unique approach which blends aspects of functional medicine, neuroscience, mindfulness, transformative coaching, and eastern medicine.

The Amaluna office is a healing oasis with soothing and stylish decor and all the creature comforts of a high-end spa. There’s no sterile doctor’s office feel here, but we offer evidence-based medicine and advanced functional testing like hormone and microbiome panels in additional to Chinese Medicine. Patients can schedule acupuncture, cupping, b12 shots, far infrared sauna sessions and functional medicine consultations 5 days per week. Stop into the office anytime to restock on a wide array of high-quality supplements and herbal products.

We are proud that six years of Google reviews reveal Amaluna patients are almost universally pleased with their results. In a town where there are a plethora of healing options, Amaluna is the perfect blend of personalized Eastern and Western integrative care in a beautiful setting. Come see us!

Were there people and/or experiences you had in your childhood that you feel laid the foundation for your success?
Both my parents were intellectual entrepreneurial types. There was a strong emphasis on education and self-sufficiency and both have served me well in the opening and operating of a successful business. My parents and some select teachers instilled in me the belief that you really can do anything you put your mind to and this empowered attitude-fueled me to take the risks that helped me get where I am today.
