Graziela Cooper has been a Board Certified Acupuncturist and Chinese Herbalist with Aloha Wellness Center since 2014 after beginning her internship with Jeffrey Dann in 2010. Following the philosophy of the clinic, she has continued to immerse herself in the study and practice of Japanese Meridian Therapy and manual therapies, especially by working closely with Dr. Dann, and continuing her studies with renowned teachers at the Goto College of Medical Arts in Tokyo, Japan and at the Shikoku Medical Collage in Utazu, Japan.
Mrs. Cooper also teaches Tai Chi at the Gu Feng TaiChi Club of Boulder, Colorado under the guidance of Laura Ting and holds a Bachelor of Architecture degree from Mackenzie University from her hometown of São Paulo, Brazil.
Her acupuncture skills include teishin (a non-invasive technique), moxibustion, and traditional needle techniques as well as manual therapies that include Craniosacral Therapy, Neural Manipulation and Sotai Ho physical therapy. When she is not working with her own patients she dedicates her clinical time to assisting with Jeffrey Dann’s patients.
Her interest and passion for Chinese culture and philosophy began in 1989, learning Taichi, Qi Gong, and personally experiencing the health benefits of Chinese medicine. They are part of her belief that the body has the ability to heal itself and that acupuncture, Chinese herbs and bodywork are safe and effective treatments to promote a healthy and harmonious life.
“My goal is to connect with patients on a level where change can happen. The skin is seen as the interface by which information is received and transferred to the body as a whole. With your growing awareness and the treatments, you will experience deeper health and well-being. This experience can be a changing point in your life.”
Graziela moved to Boulder in 1998 where she now lives with her husband, two children and pet rabbit Napoleon.
