Caregiver who cares

Dr. Emily has been helping me get control of my high blood sugar through diet, herbs and acupuncture – giving me back a sense of control and healing rather than simply treating a condition with pharmaceuticals. I highly recommend her if you want to take charge of getting better rather than just taking pills.

– J.R.

The Sunflower Wellness Center is truly one-stop shopping for all your health care needs. Dr. Emily’s gentle care includes a holistic approach with lifestyle and nutritional analysis, and a careful consideration of all factors that could influence your condition.

– M.R.

Caring, compassionate & effective care

Dr. Emily is a caring and compassionate practitioner. Her treatment style is very interactive. She asks a lot of questions and really listens to my responses. As we have worked together, she has adjusted my treatment plan as needed to reflect the changes in me and my life, with great success. I highly recommend her.

– D.C.

Excellent treatment for a wide variety of conditions

After having excellent treatment from a Chinese-born Doctor of Oriental Medicine in Colorado, I’ve been happy to find Dr. Emily Franklin’s treatments consistently surpassing my prior experience, for myself, my husband, and our adult children; for allergies, migraines, pre- & post-operative surgery care, chronic illness, dietary guidance, and for acute conditions such as colds, flu, muscle pain, and stress.

– J.M.

Cured my allergies

I used to suffer terribly from allergies – every year from early spring through late fall – with lots of congestion, sneezing and coughing. Dr. Emily’s treatments have cured my allergies, and I am so grateful. What a huge improvement in my quality of life!

– B.N.

Knowledge, skill and genuine care

I’ve seen Dr. Emily several times for many different ailments, and I’m always impressed by the knowledge, skill, and genuine care she brings to her work.

– J.D.

Successful treatment of kidney stones

I want to convey my gratitude for Dr. Emily’s skills and the way she shares them. When I came to her, I’d had four kidney-stone attacks in six days, including one while on an airplane, and I was at my wits end.

At my initial session, in addition to my treatment, Dr. Emily gave me suggestions for things I could do at home (dietary and lifestyle changes) to make my treatments more effective. I have been off of my pain medications and pain free ever since my first treatment with Dr. Emily, and have not had another attack. I travel for work, and being able to get on an airplane without wondering whether another attack will happen mid-air is a great weight to have lifted off of me.

Thanks so much to Dr. Emily for her skillful and compassionate treatments!

– F.S.

Cured my recurrent winter colds

I used to be prone to having colds all winter, every winter, and allergies most of every spring. Dr. Emily cured me of my recurring winter colds, and significantly reduced my spring hayfever.

– M.D.

Successfully treat any health condition

I have had numerous treatments from Dr. Emily over the past several years, and she is always professional and attentive, and displays great knowledge and skill in Oriental medicine. What sets her apart from other doctors is her genuine sense of compassion and understanding, as well as her ability to focus on and successfully treat any health condition, naturally. I always walk away from my treatments with Dr. Emily feeling rejuvenated, focused, and relaxed.

– A.B.

Relaxing and rejuvenating

When I arrived for my most recent appointment with Dr. Emily Franklin, I felt tired, over-extended and burnt out. After my session, I felt relaxed, energized and in balance – ready to face any challenges! As always, Dr. Franklin was an excellent listener and provided spot-on advice about my diet and general health. Looking forward to the next session!

– A.M.

Healed my broken leg

Acupuncture with Dr. Emily has had a dramatic impact on my health. I broke my leg several months ago, and was experiencing extremely slow healing in the bone. After several weekly acupuncture treatments, my bone showed significant re-calcification. I also got the added benefits of better digestion, reduced PMS symptoms, lowered stress, and overall well-being.

I don’t know how I went so long without acupuncture, because now I can’t imagine not getting it. In addition to the amazing benefits of the acupuncture, Dr. Emily imparts a feeling that I am well taken care of and listened to. She treats the whole person, not just the individual symptoms. Thanks for taking such good care of me!

– J.S.

Skillful and compassionate care for a variety of ailments

I have been treated by Dr. Emily regularly for the past several years, and attribute my good health and energy to her excellent care. I have been treated for a variety of ailments, and have always found Dr. Emily to be a most empathetic listener, a highly skilled practitioner, and a boundless source of knowledge that goes beyond Chinese Medicine to the latest research in nutrition and lifestyle management. Dr. Emily’s treatments are the best spent hours of my time!

– J.B.

Best treatment possible

The treatment and care I receive from Dr. Emily is always excellent. She is diligent in staying on top of treatments and approaches, she is highly skilled and experienced, and always listens and really hears what I am saying. I always feel both that I have been heard and that I have received the best and most appropriate treatment possible.

– K.P.

Cured of cigarette addiction

Dr. Emily treated me for my lifelong battle with cigarette addiction. After my treatment series, not only was I not smoking, I was also not even craving cigarettes, and I have not wanted to smoke since. I can’t thank her enough for helping me to quit smoking.

– R.C.

UPDATE: It’s been three years, and I am still amazed that I don’t want cigarettes anymore. When things were rough for me recently, I thought for sure that what I needed was a cigarette, and so after weeks of not giving in to that thought, I bummed one from a friend… and I HATED IT. I took one inhale and was like, ewwwww, but I couldn’t believe it so I gave it another try, thinking for sure this time it would give me the comfort it used to… but it didn’t! It was at that time I realized that I was truly a nonsmoker, thanks to Dr. Emily.

Thorough and Effective Diagnosis, Treatment and Follow-up

Dr. Emily is very good at putting people at ease. She takes the time to listen well, to get an accurate understanding of what is going on. She is very thorough, from diagnosis to treatment to follow up. Her treatments have been very effective and I always feel well taken care of.

– R.W.

No more sciatic pain!

This may sound like an over statement to some, however, when I walked into Dr. Emily’s office I was only able to stand for five minutes before the pain from my herniated disk made me sit down. For the past 6 months, I have taken prescription medication daily, and had Physical Therapy sessions and Chiropractic sessions, all of which did little to alleviate my pain. A friend recommended Dr. Emily as someone who could help me, and indeed she did! After one visit, I was not only able to stand longer than five minutes – I was able to walk all around Santa Fe and Ghost Ranch and more, without any pain. A few days after my first treatment with Dr. Emily, I was even able to play a round of golf without pain for the first time in months. I am so grateful to Dr. Emily for her care and expertise.

– R.J.

Greatly improved sleep

Dr. Emily Franklin was referred to me by a friend. She is a wise and gentle practitioner. After weeks of very little sleep due to a lot of life changes, I began sleeping better on the night of my very first treatment, and have continued to sleep well since. I’m very selective in choosing my health practitioners, and am thrilled to have found Dr. Emily.

– R.M.

Listens and cares

Dr. Emily genuinely cares and listens. She gets to the root of the issue and helps with both chronic pain and whole person wellness…

-A.O.

Valuable combination of skills and knowledge

I see Dr. Emily for acupuncture but also for her knowledge of nutrition and health. I’m mid-50s and am starting to have the usual wear and tear. I am exploring nutritional and other non-medical approaches to reducing pain / inflammation, which are inevitable given my active life. I’ve learned a great deal about different food types and simple/practical ways to modify my diet to feel and sleep better. As another reviewer wrote, Dr. Emily is an excellent listener and cares about my whole person.

– R.T.

Whole person wellness

Dr. Franklin genuinely cares and listens. She gets to the root of the issue and helps with both chronic pain and whole person wellness…

– A.F.

The BEST

I am still amazed at the success I have with Dr. Emily. I am fortunate not to have any serious medical issues and her treatments and dietary advice and supplements help me stay that way. I do have stress issues, and always leave my appointments feeling relaxed and refreshed. She is so compassionate, caring and sincere. My visits to her are the best thing I can do for my health. Everything she has done for any of my issues has brought about a positive result. Dr. Emily is the BEST.

– L.B.

Hot flashes much better

I came to Dr. Emily because of ongoing hot flashes. We are working on this and so far after only a few weeks of treatments, supplements and dietary tweaks, I am noticeably better.

– M.F.

The best in her field

Dr. Emily Franklin is an outstanding professional, and a gifted acupuncturist. I endorse her on every count for her exceptional kindness and her ability to determine whatever her clients need. Her concern for my comfort and questions during my appointment are remarkable. I have been to many different kinds of alternative practitioners, and she is one of the very best. I trust her implicitly, and look forward to a long, healthy relationship.

– L.W.

Cured my headache

Thank you again, Dr. Emily! She got rid of my six day headache She always takes the time to listen to my symptoms and work a plan for me to get better and prevent future headaches. I always come out of her office feeling 100% better and relaxed. I would recommend her to anybody that has headaches or allergies problems – she is GREAT!

– S.C.

Keeps my body and soul in balance

Dr. Emily is my Angel on Earth! Thanks to my husband Dr. Emily came into my life and has remained so since. She observed my stress right away and said she could help. Never having acupuncture before I was hesitant but her gentleness and genuine concern convinced me to try. She has also helped me in so other many ways through supplements, diet suggestions and just her PATIENCE with my concerns. She keeps my body and soul in balance, and she has such a warmth and sincerity about her. The BEST!

– L.B.

Awesome.

Excellent. Every time I come out of Dr. Emily’s office, I feel great, like nothing I have ever felt before. Dr. Emily has helped me with my stress, and my chronic allergies and chronic pain. I have lots of confidence in her, and will keep on going to see her.

– E.R.

No more high cholesterol or high blood sugar

I saw Dr. Emily for a series of consultations for high cholesterol and metabolic disorder. She gave me lots of great suggestions for diet and lifestyle changes I could make to improve these conditions, and she did a great job explaining why those changes would help me, in a way that I could easily understand. I implemented all of her wonderful advice for diet and supplements, and after just a few months, all of my blood tests came back with excellent results – I no longer have high cholesterol or elevated blood sugar! Great success!

– P.C.

Extremely competent

The atmosphere is calming, the treatments are wonderful, and Dr. Emily is compassionate and extremely competent. I would recommend Dr E to anyone!

– R.K.

Leg pain gone

I initially saw Dr. Emily for a leg injury that had been lingering for 2 years. After the second session my pain was minimal and is now gone. I will continue because it feels so good! On top of that, Dr. Emily is a pleasure to be around. You can tell she deeply cares for her patients and enjoys her work tremendously.

– C.B.

Keeps me going!

I have metabolic syndrome, joint pain & low energy, as well as depression from PTSD. The high desert pollens cause me frequent congestion and headaches. Dr. Emily listens deeply to my words and body, and skillfully treats my symptoms so that I can function better, and with far less pain. She also recommends high quality supplements, exercises, and dietary guidelines that improve my health and well-being, consistently! Her patience and good humor seem to be limitless!

– S.J.

Pain free at last

I had recurring migraine headaches that were unmanageable, so I saw Dr. Emily, and she worked her MAGIC!! Now I’m pain free and grateful for her excellent service.

– S.V.

Happier life!

I’m happier, healthier and living a more balanced life thanks to the skills of Dr. Emily! Absolute necessity.

– M.B.

Excellent care

Dr. Franklin listened carefully to my history. With a deep knowledge of body chemistry and nutrition, she made a number of helpful dietary suggestions. I liked that she took my pulses several times after she put in the needles to determine if the acupuncture treatment was having the desired effect. I appreciate the breath of knowledge she brings to treating me.

– N.W.

Caring, consistent, and knowledgeable 

I have been a patient of Dr. Emily’s for 15+ months. Dr. Emily has helped me with anxiety, depression, and thyroid issues. I feel that because of my work with her, I have been able to stay off of toxic medications prescribed by Western medicine physicians. Her knowledge of Chinese medicine, functional medicine, and nutrition as well as my active participation in my own self-care and health have made for a winning combination. Thanks, Dr. Emily for your willingness to listen and problem solve!

– j.C.

Super-Satisfied Patient

I really enjoy working with Dr. Emily. She is willing to get down into the nitty-gritty details of my routines and health experience, and her clear and confident guidance has been invaluable.

She was very knowledgeable and generous

I just had a 15-minute phone consultation with Dr. Emily, and she was wonderful. She was very knowledgeable about my issues, and I felt like I was speaking with someone who could really help me, as well as someone genuinely caring. It’s hard to find people like that, especially in health-related fields, unfortunately. She’s great!

E.V.

A “JEWEL”

I have been going to Dr. Emily regularly for years until the virus arrived. I let myself slide into bad habits and then realized how important she is in keeping me feeling the best I can. Her knowledge, listening skills, and suggestions can help us keep ourselves healthy, both mentally and physically…renewal of the soul. If ever a time to experience her expertise, this is it. I’m so glad I came back. She is a “JEWEL.

– Lila B

Personalized Treatment

As a Doctor of Oriental Medicine, Dr. Emily takes a holistic approach to my health issues that I very much appreciate. She is professional, thorough and likable. Dr. Emily took a very detailed history and spends time in our follow-up appointments, but never comes across as pressed for time. Her recommendations are created specifically for me and my particular challenges. Her billing staff worked diligently to resolve insurance coverage issues. I highly recommend Dr. Emily.

– Terri C

She helps me keep balance in a Covid world

11 Years and Counting

Dr. Emily Franklin is a consummate professional who approaches each session with freshness, anchored in years of experiences together. It is not at all an exaggeration to say that Emily saved my life 12 years ago from the dire effects of a spider bite. From that genesis, she always checks-in about what has transpired during the previous week, therefore impacting what course of action she will take on my behalf for the upcoming week. Her listening skills are matched by deep intuition.

– Melissa Moore

Dr. Emily continues to help me and my husband with complex physical issues.

We’ve been lucky to have Dr. E as an amazing resource for close to 10 years now. Can’t imagine what we would have done without her.

– T.C.

After a few months of isolation

I just had my first appointment with Dr. Emily.

I look forward to being continually treated by her with whatever comes next. Thank you!

A Ray of Sunshine

Simply put, Emily Franklin is personally the best practitioner of her kind. I have seen other “alternative” folks who didn’t strike my fancy – I got nowhere. With Emily, I actually am making progress in my health issues! She has got the knowledge and skills deeply embedded within her; however, far more than that (something more important to me) is, she has character; She listens, she is kind-hearted, and exudes a special kind of warmth; She is even funny! (The good kind of funny.) I highly recom

My experience

I go to Sunflower Wellness to keep my body in better balance and to get information that helps me continue weight loss. My health is greatly improved as is my energy level so that exercise is enjoyable. I recently had dental surgery and Dr. Franklin’s treatment was very important for the follow-up to get relief from pain and soreness, swelling, and foggy anesthesia brain. Dr. Franklin’s treatment has also helped me significantly lower blood pressure. Sunflower Wellness has my highest recommendation.

I have continued to see Dr. Emily over the past few years not because of a specific problem but because of her knowledge, listening skills and acupuncture technique.

There are not enough stars to rate Dr. Emily. I am amazed that her suggestions are just what I need. The minute I walk in the feeling of calm and reassurance comes over me. She is honest in what she can help with and takes the time to explain where issues stem from. For me now the change in my eating selections is so rewarding, She gently with her nutrition knowledge eased me into this change. She will continue to be the harmony for my mind and body. So lucky to have found her.

Six weeks under Dr. Emily’s care

I came to Dr. Emily at Sunflower because of ongoing hot flashes. We are working on this and so far after only 6 weeks of treatment, I am noticeably better…She changed my breakfast diet from too many carbs to fresh veggies and eggs and homemade bread from her bread recipe based on eggs, fresh macadamia nuts, and coconut butter.

Acupuncture works!

I initially saw Dr. Emily for a Hamstring injury that had been lingering for 2 years. After the second session, my pain was minimal and is now gone. I will continue with Acupuncture since we are now working on other areas and because it feels so good. On top of that, Dr. Emily is a pleasure to be around. You can tell she deeply cares for her patients and enjoys her work tremendously.

Building Health and Energy for the Long Term

Dr Emily is a wonderful person and magical healer. She has a deep sensitivity to listen to the body’s natural rhythms and adjust towards optimal health with just a few needles. I found her very helpful with balancing chronic fatigue, depletion and just getting energy back. I’ve seen her every month for over 7 years and each year my health improves, due in a large part to these treatments. Thank you Dr Emily for all of your work!

GuruKirin Khalsa

Beyond Needles

The hour I spend weekly in Dr. Emily’s care is the most worthwhile & deeply valued. Her approach is truly holistic, applying the effective practices of Chinese medicine and sharing a vast knowledge of nutrition and biochemistry, which she explains & recommends in a kind, nonjudgmental way. Dr. E’s amazing listening skills affirm clients’ feeling states and aid in treatment. Whether I am treated for congestion, joint pain, GI issues, or depression, I always experience relief and improved energy.

Joey S

Once again great care plus accurate diagnosis

As Dr. Emily had to take a hiatus for a few months I was deprived of seeing her regularly. Last week I arrived with some terrible stomach pains. Have you been taking your electrolytes, she asked. No, I answered. Apparently, you can drink as much water as you want but if you’re electrolyte deficient you will just retain that water and that was causing the pain. My family physician concurred the following morning when I woke up feeling great. You get more than acupuncture with Dr. Emily.

Never Stops Amazing Me

Every time I see Dr Emily for a specific pain, she sticks a needle somewhere and the pain is gone. It still amaze me to get ride of the pain in my neck, she sticks a needle in my foot/ankle. For my allergies, in my hand. At every appointment, she does her ‘Magic’, I get relief and I get about 30 minutes of rest. Not just any rest, but a rest that rejuvenates.. Always Amazing experience.

Still amazed!

I continue to be amazed and grateful for all of Emily’s healing work that has decreased my discomfort from various physical and emotional conditions. She has a vast knowledge of Chinese medicine, nutrition and natural supplements, and is an amazing listener and diagnostician. A recent brain scan showed marked improvement over one from 2001, and I credit her for much of that progress!

I fell better than I have in Years!!

Emily has help me on so many levels. The latest was when I was having Heart irregularity. I wanted to see what she thought before I sought western medical advice and I am glad I did. She knew right away I had an in balance in my electrolyte levels due to over doing it. She told me what I needed to talk and the first dose took care of the problem. I also have taken her advice on diet and what supplements to take and I feel better than I have in Years. Thanks Emily!!!!!

Best Care Ever

I have seen scores of caregivers from MDs’ to New Age healers and everything in-between over the past few years and never have I received the quality of care as I have from Dr. Emily. She works overtime on your case and takes a holistic approach including diet, supplements, and other lifestyle choices. She is a wealth of information and can answer almost any question I ask her. All this flows, I think, from her ethics which results in the best care she can possibly give her patients.

It Works!

Hi, I’ve been going back to acupuncture for the last forty years even though it has never really worked for me. Dr. Emily’s treatment was the first time it worked, in this case for lower back pain and feet neuropathy. Try it, you’ll like it.

Richard Barr

So grateful

Dr. Emily saved me this week. I had been experiencing stomach and digestion issues. She worked her magic and then suggested I do the Whole30 food plan. I’m on day 2 and I feel better than I have in months. I’m so grateful for her knowledge, kindness, and healing abilities.

Nightly Back Pain...

First night after treatment was pain-free. Thereafter pain was back. Only additional treatment will tell the future.

Caring, instructive…

At my recent visit to Sunflower Wellness Center I experienced the listening and caring of Dr. Emily. Her ability to educate me and explain the ‘why’ of things related to my symptoms provided me with better understanding of my recovery path. It was refreshing to leave a medical office without feeling rushed or unanswered.

My personal experience

I met Dr Franklin over a year ago which began my power experience of healing. There is such an awareness with Dr Franklin that really syncs with my spiritual needs which heightens my physically healing. I always say, when thinking of Dr Franklin, ask and ye shall receive. She is very powerful in her knowing of acupuncture and is open to learning new things from the spirit.

Excellent acupuncturist

Dr. Emily Franklin was referred to me by a friend. I found her to be is a wise and gentle practitioner. After weeks of very little sleep due to a lot of life changes, I began sleeping better on the night of my 1st treatment. I’m very selective in choosing my health practitioners, and am thrilled to find Dr. Emily.

Thank you Sunflower Wellness!

When I arrived for my appointment with Dr. Emily Franklin I felt tired, over extended and just a little burnt out. After my session, I felt relaxed but energized and more in balance – ready to face any challenges to my immune system. As always, Dr. Franklin was an excellent listener and provided spot on advice about diet and general health. Looking forward to the next session!

Deeply Knowledgeable, effective, gentle care

After having excellent treatment from a Chinese born Dr. in CO, I’ve been happy to find Dr.Franklin’s treatment consistently surpassing my prior experience, for both my husband, myself, and visiting adult children; for allergies, migraines, pre&post operative surgery care, chronic illness, acute conditions such as colds, flu, muscle pain, stress, and nutrition. Much better than just treating symptoms of ongoing problems as we were with traditional Western medicine.

Caring, Effective Treatments at Sunflower

I have been a client of Dr. Emily Franklin for over 4 years now, and I have been consistently impressed by her expertise in the practice of oriental medicine – both acupuncture and Chinese herbs. I have enjoyed relief of symptoms, as has my husband, whose kidney stones and allergies have abated.
