Meet Debi Saidman-Ireland
Licensed Acupuncturist

Welcome to my practice!

My name is Debi Saidman-Ireland and I am a licensed acupuncturist, with over 7 years of clinical experience and over 4 years of providing treatments in my own practice. I spent 3 years of that working at Fort Collins Community Clinic, treating at times upward of 100 patients per week. I earned my Master of Science in Acupuncture degree from the Southwest Acupuncture College of Boulder in August of 2011. This three-year program consists of over 2,500 hours of education including 1,042 hours of clinical practice. I was certified as a Diplomate in Acupuncture by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) in January 2012. This includes certification in Clean Needle Technique. After graduation I interned in the Heilongjiang University of Chinese Medicine in Harbin, China, then practiced acupuncture in Fort Collins and Loveland, Colorado since 2012. I completed an Apprenticeship in Sports Acupuncture in 2013, as well as, continual education for sports injuries, performance enhancement, prevention and recovery for athletes to weekend warriors. I also am a Healing Touch Apprentice and have completed up to level 4 of 5 in her certification process. Recently I completed the IN.FORM Weight Loss Coaching Program.

My training includes adjunctive therapies such as, sports acupuncture, moxibustion, tui na, acupressure, cupping, electric stimulation, auriculotherapy, trigger, motor point and injection therapies, and dietary and lifestyle recommendations.

In my practice I treat various conditions, but specialize in pain management and relief, sports acupuncture and women’s issues, with a focus on hormone imbalances. I partner with my patients to help them and proved support in keeping their mind, bodies and spirits balanced.

I also work at Healing Warriors Program providing high quality, affordable care to Veterans.

My clinic complies with the rules and regulations promulgated by the Colorado Department of Health, including the proper cleaning and sterilization of needles and the sanitation of acupuncture offices. Only single-use, disposable, factory- sterilized needles are utilized.

My Mission

I am a licensed Acupuncturist in the state of Colorado, specializing in general wellness, pain management, sports acupuncture and women’s wellness. I offer a semi-private clinic to be able to provide affordability so that I can see my patients through to wellness and preventative care.

I strive to promote optimal physical and emotional health using a blend of acupuncture, supplements, holistic nutrition and lifestyle counseling. I treat the individual, not the disease, and create a professional and supportive partnerships with my patients. I work closely with their other practitioners and/or members of their “healing team” to provide my patients with well-rounded integrative medicine.

I believe in integration of Eastern and Western medicine, and work to advance the understanding and practice of Chinese Medicine within the Western medical context. I promote integration through education and research, and applying my knowledge within the clinical context.

Balance in our bodies is effected by the mind, body and spirit. I believe that wellness is achieved through the partnership of the practitioner and the patient. I strive to create a partnership with my patients to enhance their whole body.
