About me

Colleen is an acupuncture practitioner with over 20 years experience. She has studied Traditional Chinese and Japanese styles including traditional meridian therapy, Kiiko style, non-insertive styles of Hari and Shakuju, and shonishin, a non-insertive pediatric acupuncture therapy. She may also incorporate Zheng Gu Tui Na, a form of Chinese medical massage, into her treatments. Colleen received her Doctorate of Acupuncture degree from Pacific College of Health and Sciences, Master of Acupuncture degree from the New England School of Acupuncture. Upon graduation from NESA she was the recipient of the Tsay Fellowship, a distinguished award for Excellence in Acupuncture. Colleen has continued to study under various masters of acupuncture both in the United States and in Japan. Additionally, she has completed clinical training at Zhejiang Provincial Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine in the People’s Republic of China.

While working as an acupuncturist, Colleen learned that part the healing process involved helping patients to see the effects their lifestyle has on their health. Through additional training she has learned how to help people transform their life. This work takes more than just during acupuncture sessions, so she began offering Coaching sessions as well. She is currently working on a Sacred Depth Certification to help clients go deeper.

My Philosophy of Care

My philosophy is to empower the patient to connect with their body and learn the messages it is trying to share. The person's body does all the work as I help the patient's body help itself by correcting and balancing the flows of energy. Additionally, as a society we spend too much time trying to make everyone else happy that we often have forgotten how to even listen to what we really want. I work to help people connect with their inner desires and add it to their life.

What You Can Expect On Your First Visit

We spend up to one hour speaking about your whole body's health, even if you are coming for just pain in your wrist. Then I will continue the intake by taking your pulse and palpating your abdomen. Using that information, I insert needles into appropriate locations. Some people notice an immediate change in their symptoms, but others take 4-6 sessions to see enough of a change to take notice.

My Inspiration

I never really knew what I wanted to be when I grew up. In undergraduate college I earned a BA in Psychology and a BS in Industrial Engineering while becoming a volunteer Emergency Medical Technician. In my early 20s I suffered from horrible migraine headaches but I don't respond well to pain medicines and was allergic to imitrex. I was desperate and "resorted to acupuncture" as I told my friends. That was the changing point in my life. It was amazing and I needed to learn more.
