Christa Caputa MEd, MAOM, LAc, LMT
Christa Caputa relocated to Longmont, CO, in August of 2015. She has been a professional in the healing arts since 2002 and an educator since 1993. Helping other people thrive is her passion.
Caputa realized while practicing and teaching massage that pain runs deeper than mere structural abnormalities. She wanted tools in her arsenal that could address the energetic issues that underlie pain in the body. This is what led her to Chinese Medicine.
Her work then shifted to treating anxiety and depression, trauma, and other imbalances that affect emotions. Christa says that, “Pain is difficult and can be depleting and depressing. However, the changes I have seen in peoples’ lives who are utilizing Chinese Medicine stretch farther than mere pain relief. Clients are feeling more emotionally, mentally, spiritually, and physically alive and in balance.”
She treats everything from acute sports injuries to marathoners in training, peri-menopausal and menopausal women, as well as men who are dealing with issues of aging like pain, ED, urinary and prostate issues. She works with clients diagnosed with fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, eating disorders, or other addictions. She has also had amazing results treating TMD (TMJ) and other symptoms that result from the high-stress lives we lead. Using Acupuncture, Chinese Herbs, and Bodywork, Caputa helps people establish balance in their bodies.
Caputa finished her undergraduate literature degree at the University of MN. She attended The Lauterstein-Conway School of Massage in Austin, TX, Seattle University for her Masters in Adult Education (MEd) and The Oregon College of Oriental Medicine for her Masters in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (MAOM).
She has been an instructor since 1993 and is currently the Senior Science Instructor for the Berkana Institute in CO.
She is nationally certified as an acupuncturist as well as massage therapist and is licensed to practice in Colorado.
