He graduated with a Master’s in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in 2019 from Dragon Rises College of Oriental Medicine in Gainesville, FL.

He was also fortunate enough to learn the Shen-Hammer Contemporary Chinese Pulse Diagnosis system, as well as channel palpation techniques.

Braden moved to Colorado Springs in February of 2020 to get closer to the mountains, and to get away from Florida’s more humid environment. He is a veteran, having served in the U.S. Army for three and a half years, and deployed to Afghanistan with the 82d Airborne for Operation Enduring Freedom X. Upon receiving his Honorary Discharge, he began seeking a career in health and fitness and found his path in oriental medicine. He chose to pursue oriental medicine due to long held interests in martial arts and eastern philosophy. He had long been interested in Chinese energetic exercises, known as qi gong, and found himself utterly fascinated with the Chinese medical theories used in acupuncture and herbal medicine. While studying to attain his Master’s he worked as a certified personal trainer, and put together workouts helping clients reach their goals and attain higher levels of health and fitness. Now, he endeavors to provide the best acupuncture treatments he can to his patients while always continuing to expand his understanding of the medicine.

Teresa Sullivan L.Ac. Dipl. Ac.

Teresa is certified as a Diplomate of Acupuncture by the National Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) and is licensed in the state of Colorado. She received her Master of Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) from the Colorado School of Traditional Chinese Medicine in 2012.

With Acupoint injections she can help clients with chronic and acute pain, chronic adhesions, scar tissue, and provide B12 therapy.

Teresa’s favorite quote is “Chinese Medicine chose me”. Because she never received acupuncture until she was in school, she learned medicine with different eyes. When she found out Chinese medicine treats the whole person, seeking to get to the root cause of an ailment, she enrolled in school without pause. This is what she has been called to do.

With a compassionate spirit and gentle technique clients appreciate, she puts those afraid of needles at ease. She has experience with treating a wide range of issues including: cancer, depression, anxiety, stress, women’s health, fertility, digestive problems, allergies, PTSD, pain, migraines, sciatica, and insomnia. She believes acupuncture is a powerful modality for physical, emotional, and spiritual healing and growth.

Before becoming an acupuncturist, she worked as a sign language interpreter for Denver Public Schools for 10 years and loves working with kids.

She has trained with some of the best, such as Richard Tan, Jeffrey Yuen, Whitfield Reaves, Kiiko Matsumoto, Peter Deadman, Jeff Angel, and Lonny Jarrett.

Marji Freymuth LMT

Licensed Massage Therapist, Certified in Thai Massage, Reflexology, Advanced Nerve Touch Healing Massage

Marji has worked in healthcare-related jobs since 2000 and took a half year hiatus in 2007-2008 to live in Thailand, do volunteer work, and study massage techniques practiced there.  She was struck by the fact that massage has been considered an essential part of the traditional Thai medical system for over 2500 years.  She returned to massage school in 2020 so she could practice here in Colorado and rediscovered her love of therapeutic massage.

Through her own experience of physical trauma, she has learned the value of acupuncture and massage in alleviating chronic pain and dysfunction.  Her desire to help offer similar relief to others is informed by modern, evidence-based bodywork practices of the West and traditional, tried-and-true techniques of the East.

Our Support Staff:

Tiffany Vogel EMT

Client Coordinator

I recently relocated to Colorado Springs from Arizona with my husband and 12 year old son Hunter. We absolutely love it here in Colorado.  We love being able to enjoy the outdoors and changing seasons. I enjoy running outdoors, and hiking. I hope to one day have enough courage to attempt the incline. I have worked in the medical field for the past 11+ years as well as run my own office. I love learning new things. I had my EMT in Arizona and plan on getting in here in Colorado as well. I love working with people of all ages. Making a difference in someone’s day is quite amazing, and something I strive to do daily.

 

I also enjoy giving back to the community through volunteer and charity work. Currently my husband and I volunteer and coordinate charity events for “The Children’s Tumor Foundation”. This event is for children and families affected by Neurofibromatosis. It is a rare disorder (1 in every 3, 000 worldwide) and currently there isn’t a cure. As well as the “Shoot For Hope”, which is an fun 3-D archery event for the whole family, and all the proceeds go to The Cancer Treatment Centers of America.  Both of these events are in Arizona, but I am working on also bringing them here to Colorado Springs as well.
