Staff & Philosophy
We are a group of practitioners that love what we do and it shows - through our dedication to our patients' healing, high standards of integrity and constant yearning to be better healers. This means you get the best treatment, attention and care possible.
The Natural Healing
The way we care for our patients is based on
individualization, integration and trust.
Each person is unique and thus there are no “standard” sessions or treatment plans; we customize all care to the specific needs of the patient
Integration – We value the interconnection of mind/body/spirit, as well as the collaboration of the team to collectively recommend and oversee comprehensive, holistic treatment plans
Trust – Healing is truly a “we” event. We build strong relationships with each patient so they have a partner in healing.

She received her M.S. and O.M.D. in acupuncture and Chinese herbal studies at S.A.M.R.A University of Oriental Medicine, Los Angeles, California.
She has also received many years of valuable training under the privileged preceptorship of two renowned Asian master practitioners as well as specialty training in acupuncture orthopedics and Korean Hand Therapy. Her training and over 25 years of experience place her among the top practitioners today.
Because of this, Dr. Wells was hand-picked to receive instruction in low level laser therapy (cold laser) under the tutelage of Lars Hode, a renowned developer and manufacturer of the finest lasers. She was also one of three acupuncturists selected to assist the Kaiser Permanente Pain Clinic in San Diego County in its successful pilot program to utilize acupuncture for severe and chronic pain relief.
An educator as well as practitioner, in her dedication to educating the public in this ancient healing art, she founded the American Institute of Oriental Medicine, a 4-year college of acupuncture and herbal studies, and has written curricula for acupuncture and chiropractic colleges in New York and California.
As a skilled practitioner, Dr. Wells leverages the power of acupuncture to restore health, prevent disease, and provide relief from chronic and acute conditions. Her deep belief and passion for her work enable groundbreaking results and tremendous success for her patients.
Dr. Wells has maintained Acupuncture licenses in California, Washington, and now Colorado. She recently moved to Denver to join her daughter and family and to enjoy the beauty and splendor of this amazing Rocky Mountain state. For the past few years she enjoyed practicing in Cherry Creek and Glendale, CO and recently opened her own integrated clinic, the Natural Healing Center, in Aurora, CO.
Dr. Paul Bradley
We are thrilled to announce a fabulous addition to our healing staff. Paul Bradley DC has recently brought his unique Chiropractic healing system to the Natural Healing Center. Dr. Bradley received his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Logan Chiropractic College of Chesterfield Missouri in 2001. He utilizes a healing system called Cranial Nerve Reintegration (CNR.) This system is very gentle and produces immediate and lasting results. Patients are often amazed at how quickly Dr. Bradley can determine the source of their problem in a way nobody else has before. He incorporates many systems of evaluation and treatment including muscle response testing, cold laser therapy, and effective instrument adjusting techniques. He also demonstrates how the nervous system has responded to his treatment at each visit.
Dr. Bradley is fascinated by the subtle systems of the body and how they influence health and healing.CNR provides a structure for evaluating the electrical system of the body which is managed by the brain, spinal cord and peripheral nerves. This system of treatment provides relief even for patients who have tried "everything else."
Dr. Bradley also has extensive training in clinical nutrition and can provide effective natural solutions for disabling migraine headaches and insomnia that has not responded well to traditional medical approaches.
Kim graduated in 2005 from The Boulder College of Massage Therapy 1000 hour certification course and has been doing massage full time since. She is highly trained in various healing modalities including Neuromuscular Therapy, Myofascial Release, Zen Shiatsu, and Core Synchronism. Though Kim specializes in postural assessment and corrective, treatment oriented bodywork, she also places great emphasis on the healing benefits of deep relaxation and most often introduces a combination of modalities into each session to both help correct structural imbalances and take her client into deep relaxation where the work will have the greatest impact. “I believe that at the core we each are healthy and happy beings and no matter what the outward symptoms are it is essential to focus and build on that health. As a healer I prefer to place my energies in to balance, health, and peace in order to help my clients bring these qualities to the surface.”
