Karl's mission is to bring balance in the world and improve the well being of people in his community. When people are in good mental and physical health, they can be positive, helpful people in the world. 


Karl is continually learning and developing his understanding of the body, medicine, health, self development, and spirituality in order to bring more to his clients’ each day.  

His treatments combine numerous forms of eastern and western healing modalities that are effective and safe ways to relieve physical and mental stress, realign the joints, rebalance soft tissues and move the body toward a greater state of health and wellness.  


In addition to practicing healing arts as a licensed Acupuncturist since 2011, Karl is a finish carpenter, tile artist and a photographer. Karl uses his background in Eastern medical tradition to bring influences of health, creative design and functional art to his work. This synergy of healing arts, craftsmanship and artistry is most prevalent in his work developing reflexology paths and tile mosaics, but can also be found in every aspect of his work as a healer and an artist.


Karl lives with his family in beautiful Eldorado Springs, Colorado.
