Jessica Hardy, L.Ac. (licensed acupuncturist)

Acupuncture Practitioners - Jessica Jessica couldn’t be more thrilled to be doing community-style acupuncture! After running her own private clinic for 3 years, Jessica had the opportunity to open a Community-style acupuncture clinic. Jessica jumped on that opportunity because she knows the group healing energy and the affordability of this model is how she wanted to practice Traditional Chinese Medicine. Every day at Meeting Point Community Acupuncture Clinic, Jessica is thankful to be treating so many people with a wide variety of health issues who might not have been able to afford acupuncture otherwise.

When not working at the clinic, Jessica might be playing, coaching or officiating lacrosse, running, mountain biking, rock climbing, snowboarding or taking her pups for a walk or run.

Jessica has a Master of Science degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine. She studied at Colorado School of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Denver and the International School of Oriental Medicine in Beijing, China. She is licensed in the state of Colorado and is nationally certified as a Diplomat in Acupuncture by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM).

Alicia Kelley, L.Ac.

Alicia first started studying health in 2007 when she moved to South Carolina. She graduated from Coastal Carolina University with a Bachelors of Science in Public Health with a minor in Exercise Science. During that time, she wanted to provide options for people to take control of their health by building affordable fitness centers in areas of need. This was a great thought, but she wanted something more hands on than writing grants and proposals. 

After college, she moved to Boulder to attend Southwest Acupuncture College where she earned her Masters degree in Oriental Medicine. She is also certified by NCCAOM as a diplomate of Oriental Medicine. She uses acupuncture and herbal medicine to treat disorders such as insomnia, pain, anxiety, along with digestion and women’s health. Along with Acupuncture, she likes to use Chinese herbs, bodywork, and nutrition therapy.

She has also studied acupuncture, Chinese herbs, and bodywork at the Liaoning University in China. While there, she got to see how the hospitals are set up for healing and help with recovery, and how they combine eastern and western medicine. She also works in a private clinic in Boulder, but is excited to be working in a community clinic where everyone can afford this medicine. She strongly believes that everyone should be able to afford health care!

Alicia is happy to be living in Colorado, and loves being outside. She likes to explore and hike with her dog. She likes to climb both mountains and aerial silks and loves to play. She is happy to have found this medicine, and enjoys getting to know each of her patients.

Kyle received his Master’s of Science in Oriental Medicine at Southwest Acupuncture College in Boulder, Colorado, and is certified as a Diplomate of Oriental Medicine by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine.  He is licensed in the state of Colorado to practice acupuncture (and other modalities within that scope including cupping, gua sha, and oriental medical bodywork therapy) as well as Oriental medicinal herbal therapy.
