Debi Ireland, Owner

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.

I strive to promote optimal physical and emotional health using a blend of acupuncture, dry needling, patented herbs, supplements, holistic nutrition and lifestyle counseling.

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.

Charles Wear

Charles Wear graduated from Southwest Acupuncture College in Boulder, CO in 2020.  Charles began studying acupuncture and Chinese medicine as a way to help military Veterans deal with chronic pain and PTSD following their military service. As a Veteran himself, he used acupuncture to overcome his own issues with pain, anxiety and depression after separating from the Army.  His skills and compassion have guided hundreds of people on the path to a mentally and physically healthier life, and he stands ready and prepared to lead many more.

Charles also has a passion to help Veterans.  He feels he is in a position to actually do something to help these people who have selflessly done so much for so many others.

Fort Collins Acupuncturists Specializing in

Chronic Pain

There are numerous theories on how acupuncture works, but one explanation is that the needles trigger the body to produce hormones that suppress inflammation and pain. ENS (electrical nerve stimulation) units are devices that work in a similar fashion. By sending electrical impulses to painful areas, they are thought to raise levels of endorphins, the body’s natural pain killers.

Acute Pain

Acupuncture reduces inflammation which is responsible for pain, swelling and tenderness. It also stimulates the release of endorphins, the body's natural painkillers. It relaxes the surrounding muscles and improves circulation which can speed up the healing process.

Other Conditions

Acupuncture can regulate immune function and treat the underlying cause of the disease by reducing symptoms, speeding up the healing of infection and normalizing the body’s immune response. It works by stimulating specific portions of the autonomic nervous system through selected acupoints, which in turn causes responses in the immune system.
