Piper Mullins received their Master’s of Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine from the Colorado School of Traditional Chinese Medicine in August of 2018. They are currently pursuing a Doctoral degree in Classical Chinese Medicine Theory at the Colorado Chinese Medicine University.
Piper is a NCCAOM certified diplomate in Acupuncture and a member of the Acupuncture Association of Colorado. Their focus is on treating one patient at a time, and catering each treatment to the needs of each individual.
Piper is one of the Clinic Director’s at Colorado Chinese Medicine University, where they teach acumoxa techniques, acupoint theory, and clinical ethics.
They believe that each individual has the ability to achieve healing, and they see treatment as a collaborative process between patient and practitioner. Piper’s first acupuncture treatments were around chronic respiratory infections, pain, and emotional trauma. After initial treatment, Piper began a course of study with the T’ai Chi Project as a Barefoot Doctor’s program participant, which naturally led them to the Colorado School of Traditional Chinese Medicine for further education and study.
They are also working in the CCMU Doctoral Practice Clinic on Thursday evenings, as a doctoral student and candidate.
Their hope is to bring the healing practice of acupuncture to as many people as possible, including those who have not traditionally had equity or access to private practice acupuncture therapy.
Piper’s particular areas of interest are pain management, emotional disorder (including: depression, anxiety, insomnia, and stress) fatigue (including autoimmune issues), and concerns with healthy aging.
Piper believes that the patient and practitioner should work together to come up with a treatment plan and course of action to promote health, longevity, and positive transformation. In all of us lies the fire, the bird, and the ash.
