The Clinic

Eldorado Healing Arts is located in downtown Eldorado Springs, at the mouth of Eldorado Canyon State Park, just 10 minutes outside of Boulder, Colorado.

Our cozy clinic space is nestled in an old growth cottonwood grove on the bank of the South Boulder Creek. You can hear the sound the creek rush by from the office window.

 We believe that nature is the greatest healer, and encourage our clients to treat each session as a mini nature retreat, by taking a little extra time before or after a session to enjoy the surrounding natural beauty.
