About Venture Merz L.Ac.

Where fun, healing and integrity meet

Hello! I am Venture Merz, an Acupuncturist, clinical herbalist and the founder of Sapling Acupuncture.  I hold a Masters of Oriental Medicine (MSOM) from Southwest Acupuncture College and am board certified by the NCCAOM in Acupuncture (Dipl.Ac.) and licensed by the state of Colorado (L.Ac.). I specialize in pediatric acupuncture (Shonishin), women’s health, pregnancy and birth acupuncture. I’ve worked with kids for over 26 years babysitting, nannying, as a preschool teacher, a guide for kids backpacking adventures, and as a mentor and teachers assistant.  My passion is in helping kids be full, bright, healthy and strong to live into their full potential. Women’s health has naturally gone hand in hand with this, and I look forward to helping you with your health goals whether they be big or small. When I’m not doing acupuncture I enjoy doing pottery in the studio, going on hikes and doing art projects with my daughter and am absolutely thrilled with fairy house construction.
