About Sophia

My name is Sophia Arnesen and I'm a Licensed Acupuncturist and Herbalist in Arvada, Colorado. I help women navigate hormone imbalances so they can have more energy, more balanced moods and emotions, regular menstrual cycles, pain free periods, and optimized fertility so they can get back to living out their wildest dreams.

 

I am nationally board certified by the National Certification Commission of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM), as well as Clean Needle Technique and CPR/First Aid certified. I received my Bachelor's degree from UNC-Charlotte and my Master's of science in Traditional Chinese Medicine from the Colorado School of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

My Story

It was 2013, and I was fed up with my options. I was overwhelmed, depressed and overworked. At the time, I was searching for the best birth control option for myself. I started taking the pill, and after a year of continuous bleeding was then recommended a second birth control pill to stop the bleeding of the first. That's right, I was taking two birth control pills at the same time as recommended by my OBGYN.

I was so disconnected from myself, and I knew something was wrong, but I wasn't sure what. I knew that something had to change. I had an 'aha' moment and with the help of some great practitioners, decided to change my life. I finally made the choice to be hormone free (after being recommended for a blood transfusion as a healthy woman under the age of 30) and I now work to educate women that they too have options. I'm fed up for you. I'm fed up with hearing that you've been told that your only options are prescription meds or surgery.

I know it's not easy, and it's going to take a lot of work. But believe me when I say it's worth it. Being in sync with my body & menstrual cycle has completely changed my life. I know exactly when I'm ovulating, and I know when my period is coming. And when it does come, it's pain free and not a big deal. You deserve that freedom too. 


Painful & debilitating periods are common, but they are not normal. ​You deserve to have pain free periods and regular menstrual cycles.
