I posted this in another thread, but hadn't received a response yet. So I thought I'd try again ...
Mike from back east: thank you so very much for sharing your research and experiences! And of course, to the others who have contributed, as well.

My boyfriend and I have been researching for many months on finding a place to move to that, also like you, Mike, had no humidity, no extreme hot/cold, no bugs, no immenent threat of tornadoes, etc. and is affordable. We've narrowed it down to Spokane, WA, Colorado Springs and the area, and perhaps even Reno, NV. [We're currently in Austin, TX and hate the heat and humidity! And I was born and raised in the MD/D.C. area, so I can relate to the comments posted here about the east!]

I am beginning to think that CS fits the bill the best, esp. after reading this forum!

We are both starting out as acupuncturists and I am curious if anyone knows the reception for acupuncture and alternative medicine in the CS area?
There seems to already be quite a few acupuncturists in the Denver/Boulder/Fort Collins (Northern) areas, but fewer per capita in the CS and Pueblo area. We're also trying to get a better idea about what acupuncturists are charging in the CS area - we seem to have found a general range, but nothing too informative yet.

Any information that anyone may be able to provide is greatly appreciated!
Fay & Charles

You could make a fortune in California. Of course, you'd need to to be able to survive here.

In COS? I really couldn't tell you.

Good luck.

I suggest perhaps visitng this site www.csindy.com . This is Colorado Springs Alternative Weekly Newspaper. If you go to the classified section under the heading Body and Soul you'll see some advertisements for Accupuncturists. Maybe you could call them and see what they're charging.

The Westside/Old Colorado City area has a pretty big population of Alternative Medicine practiioners ranging from Accupuncturists to Qui Gong.

While many characterise this city as being pretty conservative I'd like to make note that the closer you get to the mountains the more open minded people are as a general rule.

Feel free to PM me if you have any further questions.

@Ladykalous...I see you're new here. It's always a good idea to look at the date of the posting you're replying to. In this case, the original question was posted well over 5 years ago (about the time you were moving here in fact), there were only two answers and those were over 5 months after the original question was asked, and the thread has been dead ever since. The OP has three posts and hasn't been seen from again.
