'Restore new Health and Energy at a peaceful place..'

"Nizhoni" is Native American and means "Walk in Beauty", and this philosophy guides Nizhoni Health Center.

From Relaxation to Therapeutic/Medical Massage to Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy / Equine Therapy, each client is treated based on their individual needs.

Nizhoni Health Center was established by Birgitta Kieckhaben, owner and founder of Nizhoni Health Center, in 2001. After graduating with a German Business and Geriatric Nursing  degree and experience in both fields, she moved to beautiful Colorado in 1997. After continuing education she realized her dream of a holistic practice, with a mission statement to provide outstanding and individualized care to clients/patients with a team approach.

Nizhoni Health Center is located on the southeastern edge of Black Forest, 10 minutes north of Colorado Springs and 10 minutes south of Monument, in a retreat like setting. Our practice offers reception, 3 treatment rooms and a cozy retreat area. Access to 3 acres of gardens and horse property will make each visit a nature and country experience. 

The barn is conveniently located only steps away from the practice, for easy access to combine Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy with Equine Therapy.

Nizhoni Health Center has a strong belief that many diseases/conditions can be prevented/treated with a holistic Body/Mind approach and individualized therapy plans. We offer many types of therapies to fit your needs.

What Therapy heals

Therapies are successful if they "remove the restrictions" to allow the body's own healing wisdom to express itself. Therefore, all clients are treated individually based on their lifestyle and level of health. Find the cause of disease rather than treating symptoms.
