Piper Mullins received their Master’s of Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine from the Colorado School of Traditional Chinese Medicine in August of 2018. Piper is a certified diplomate in Acupuncture. Their focus is on treating one patient at a time, and catering each treatment to the needs of each individual.
Piper grew up in the Denver metro area and has made their home in the local arts scene. Their undergraduate work was in Writing and Communications at Metro State University of Denver. Piper is an a nationally recognized poet and writer, which was one of the first steps in their own healing process and personal transformation. 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 CSTCM Grad Care Clinic on Thursday evenings.
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 geriatric issues.
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.
