"Michael is a true healthcare practitioner! His research went above and beyond, and his dedication to treating the whole person as well as the etiology of the presentation was paramount! He even did research to help my son, who at the time, was a peripheral patient but I digress... I went to Michael with the hope of simple pain mitigation. After months of consistent acupuncture, herbal and light therapy, as well as supplements to address deficiencies, I have gone from relatively hopeless to incredibly hopeful, as the pain is almost gone. Michael addresses the root cause of the issue, and for me, helped to create an environment that was tolerable until true health was achieved. You are not going to get this kind of dedication and in depth research for your individual health issue from many practitioners... especially those who are hamstrung to disease management. Like I said before, Michael's work is true healthcare!"

“I went to Mike for my intro session today and I’m so glad I did! His treatment options are integrated and I can honestly say I feel better right now than I have in a while. I highly recommend that if you are thinking of trying something like acupuncture you should definitely go here! Plus he literally spent so much time helping me and listening. He even sent me my requested recommendations for a few things right away like he said afterwards! I look forward to my journey to health through this proven modality(s)!"

I highly recommend The Subtle Point as Mike, the acupuncturist, is very professional and is an extremely knowledgeable treatment provider. I could not be happier with my treatments from acupuncture to dry needling and even fire cupping; it all left me feeling amazing. Every issue I had was addressed with care. I really like his office as it is a very relaxing environment. I recommend The Subtle Point to everyone I know.


I highly recommend Subtle Point, I was in a lot of pain from my flight over to Denver. They took good care of me and were incredibly welcoming. I'd give them 10 stars!

-Alekx Guzman

I highly recommend The Subtle Point and acupuncturist Mike! The pricing is very fair, the environment is elegant yet welcoming-a very relaxing atmosphere and a great escape from the bustle of the city-and Mike is a warm and extremely knowledgeable treatment provider happy to tailor your experience to your desires. I would definitely suggest trying out the fire cupping: it felt amazing! I will return to The Subtle Point!

-Blake Guffey

Mike is an incredibly intelligent and skilled healer. The acupuncture treatments have helped decrease my pain so much. He listens and takes the time to really address your issue. Thankful for this place!

-Kira Rio

I got my neck cranked pretty hard in jiu jitsu a couple months ago and had some pretty bad nerve issues/pain around the neck and shoulder. I decided to visit Mike at The Subtle Point to give acupuncture a try to see if it might help. After a few sessions I started to feel way better and actually started to heal. I also got some cupping done which helped with some muscle soreness as well. It was amazingly relaxing and after a few sessions the pain was gone. Not sure why I waited this long in life to try it, definitely helped the healing process for me and Mike was great to work with.

-Duane Kibbee

Mike is experienced and knowledgeable of accupuncture practice. His prices are affordable and he is professional but very welcoming and friendly. This has to be one of the best accupuncturist that I have seen. Anyone in the colorado area should definitely stop by at subtle points. It is definitely a great experience and life changing. He specializes in all area but mostly with chronic pain, anxiety and stress. Look no further this will be one of your favorite places to go to.

-Eva Garay

I had cupping and acupuncture, AMAZING! Can’t wait for my next treatment. Mike is nice and very knowledgeable. Highly recommended.

Thank you Dr. Sugiura! Great treatment + Clean Clinic (Cool lemon tree btw). Went back to work right after without the muscle pain so that was a huge difference. Right place right time for that discount. Thanks again for the advice and will definitely follow-up during my weight training. I won't be lifting that way again hahaha no more Boulder lifting for a while!

I cannot recommend this place enough! I was always hesitant to try acupuncture because I didn't if it would help my back pain or not. I am so glad I had my first experience at Subtle Point with Micheal. It was easy to get scheduled. Mike took his time and made me feel very comfortable. He is very knowledgeable and alleviated my pain. I can't wait to go back!


Mike is very professional and knowledgeable. He did acupuncture for my hernia and it is much smaller now. He also suggested some herbs to improve digestion. I also had some main in my arm and it's gone after gua sha treatment. Me and my wife (she did some treatments as well) both feel much better.

Mike is a great professional. He explained every step of the process. The clinic is very clean and well equipped. I'll definitely be back.


Mike did a great job! I suffer from chronic pain and I didn’t know I could feel such relief. I left completely relaxed and shocked at how low my pain level was. He explained everything he was doing and made the session very comfortable. Basically he’s just good at what he does and I would recommend him to anyone.

-Alice Wonder

I’ve always been super tight in my lower back, after just my first cupping session I could feel the major difference from before the session. I will definitely be making this a regular appointment.

Michael was super wonderful. I purchased the acupuncture and cupping special. He took his time explaining every technique he uses and made sure that each area I wanted to tackle was handled and targeted with care. The experience was both in depth and very comfortable and I feel like a million bucks afterwards! I highly recommend his services!

He made my first cupping experience super!! and he took away my annoying migraine! Next time in Colorado I will be stopping by again. Thanks Micheal for all your help!!!


I have never done cupping before and this was great! Mike was very professional and thorough in getting my history about what I needed pain/ tightness/ discomfort wise. The office was clean, tidy, and comfortable.


If you go anywhere else you’re wasting your time ~ first time cupping was perfect and educational


I have never done cupping before and this was great.The office was clean and comfortable.


Awesome experience! He really listens to whst you need and takes time to treat your problem areas. I can't wait to go back, this will be the place I go on a regular basis now!


Mike is a miracle worker. I’ve had severe pain in my back for years, and it got to the point I could barely walk. After my initial treatment my pain was near gone. He was very thorough, always making sure I knew what he was doing and what was next. His office was very clean and relaxing. Will definitely be returning and recommend him highly to anyone and everyone. Like
