About Alexia Bennetts
Alexia Bennetts (Lexie) was first treated with acupuncture and Chinese medicine in her early 20′s for sinus and menstrual problems. She had seen western medicine doctors for these ailments and was given the usual pain medications and told some of these issues were just genetic and not likely to change much. Yet after a couple months of treatment with Chinese medicine, she felt better than ever and her issues with her sinuses and menstration had been relieved; it was then knew this was a medicine she wanted to learn more about.
In 1999 she became a licensed acupuncturist in Colorado. Lexie especially enjoys treating pain, women’s issues, digestive problems and sinus/allergy conditions. She collaborates with other physicians and healthcare providers, to promote total patient balance and health. She believes that in order to heal the mind, body, and soul there needs to be a combination of approaches and gentle care. Lexie marries east with the west with degrees in Oriental Medicine and Biology, along with experience from EAS, a sport supplement company. This diverse background, along with having more than 2,000 hours of eastern medicine training, gives Lexie a well-rounded foundation in health, nutrition and fitness. In her 13 years of practice, Lexie has maintained and advanced her skills and knowledge as a current member of the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, and by taking continuing education classes.
She consistently treats her patients at Calm Spirit Acupuncture with gentleness, empathy and professionalism. Chinese Medicine recognizes good health includes balancing the mental, spiritual and physical aspects in one’s life. This is accomplished using a variety of “tools” including educating the client in diet, lifestyle choices and preventative strategies; acupuncture; herbal remedies; manual massage-like techniques to restore health. Lexie genuinely listens to her patients and creates treatment plans that will fit their health and wellness needs and understands that healing begins at the root of the illness.
Lexie is grateful to her clients for the success of the practice, noting “the main source of referrals is word-of-mouth from our happy and loyal clients.”
