Educational Background & Training
Nadya Waziri is board certified and licensed as a acupuncturist and herbalist. She received her MSOM, or Master’s of Science in Traditional East Asian Medicine from Southwest Acupuncture College in Boulder, Colorado. This advanced degree included more than 3,000 hours of education and training in a Traditional Chinese Medical approach to acupuncture, herbalism, nutrition, and medical massage (acupressure) as well as a solid foundational knowledge of conventional Western medicine.
She has also taken courses in 5 Element and Japanese style acupuncture. Her undergraduate degree was in Dance, which has provided her with a intuitive knowledge of how the body works, and a deep understanding of the wide range of athleticism and injuries our bodies can experience.
After 20 years of practicing yoga informally, she participated in the Satya Yoga immersive yoga teacher training for POC in Denver, under the guidance of Lakshmi Nair. She received her 200 hour teaching certificate in 2016.
An ancient practice which draws on over 2500 years of experience and healing knowledge. It is comprised of acupuncture: the insertion of hair thin pins to optimally redirect the body's energy and activate its own healing abilities, herbal medicine: a method of highly specialized Chinese herbs custom blended for the individual, and a broad range of other medicinal practices.
"Nadya is caring and sensitive with her patients and is dedicated to finding the most effective treatment for each individual. I always feel less stressed after a moxa treatment and I would highly recommend her services."
"What strikes me most about Nadya Waziri is her rapport with me. She has always treated me as a whole person, not just my symptoms. Not only does she apply her extensive knowledge of acupuncture points and herbs to help my body get back into balance, she does it with humor and compassion for my soul."
"I am a 75 year old avid golfer. I have been fighting the effects of chronic migraine for about 25 years. Five years ago my handicap was 11. Since then, my handicap has gone down to 20 and I have had increasing difficulty in even play the game due to migraines and muscle spasms in my neck, back and shoulders due to the tensions of migraines. I have seen most Doctors in south metro Denver. If you look on the internet for migraine treatments, I have taken it. After the last Mayo clinic trained migraine specialist told me he could not help me, I called East West Medicine to try acupuncture and was lucky enough to be assigned to Nadya Waziri. She said she could give me some relief within six weeks to three months. She stopped the migraine within 2 months and has solved about two layers of spasms. I am more flexible than I have been in years and I have increased my drive distance 30 to 40 yards. I have had to go down a club on my approach shots. My first round this year at an executive course, I shot 8 over. This is way above my head, but I am really looking forward to a good summer of golf."
"I own a catering company and do long hours on my feet. I’ve had sciatic pain that recurs at least once every 6 months for the last 4 years. I came into Nadya’s office with sharp shooting pain, unable to sit, and barely able to walk. After Nadya’s acupuncture and moxa treatment I was able to sit and walk better, and I felt a great relief. The next day, as I was warned, I had pain, and was sore, but was able to be without pain with the right position and support. The next morning when I got up, I was pain free. I had used chiropractic care previously, which was helpful, but didn’t receive the level of relief that I did from the acupuncture. I was surprised at the level of relief I have had with just one treatment."
