We sat down with Erika Becker, licensed acupuncturist and owner of Koselig Acupuncture located in Greenwood Village, to talk about Chinese medicine, herbs and entrepreneurship.
Walking into her office you can't help but notice the ethereal and inviting ambiance with star-shaped light fixtures, soothing wall colors and trickling water. In fact, her business name encapsulates that feeling.... Koselig is a Norwegian word that loosely translates to mean a feeling of coziness, happiness and contentment. The feeling she hopes her patients feel after finishing a treatment with her.
Erika has a background in the medical field with western medicine, but after having s series of illnesses with the solution always coming in the form of medications and prescriptions, she decided that was not acceptable, so she became her own advocate and began studying the benefits of herbs. She found relief and success with that approach which then lead her to go a step further and visit a traditional acupuncture school - that was it... she immediately felt at home there and decided to begin her journey in Chinese medicine.
Coming from a family of entrepreneurs, she felt that, although scary and risky, she wanted to open her own practice and become a small business owner. Becker says "If you are thinking about your passion and a business all of the time, you need to do it... but also know that it is OK to be afraid and cry sometimes." No doubt her patients are happy that she took the leap into an industry that can provide relief and healing from many ailments.
