Dr. Michelle Hines

DAC, L.Ac, MS, BSN, RN

Michelle’s story, like a lot of practitioners, starts when Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture worked for her personally. After a surprising diagnosis of endometriosis, multiple surgeries and profound pain, she started acupuncture and it was the answer. Her personal experience with Chinese Medicine cultivated a deep desire to dedicate her career path to helping others find their own sense of health and wellness.

 

Michelle decided after many years of being a nurse in the Emergency Department, a new path was awaiting her. She earned her Doctor of Acupuncture from the Pacific College of Health and Science in 2021.  She earned her Master of Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine with a Diplomat of Acupuncture from the Colorado School of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

 

Since graduating from acupuncture school in 2015, Michelle has maintained her private practice in Fort Collins and is also currently working at the Integrative Medicine Wellness Place at uchealth in an integrated hospital setting. Her passion for treating cancer patients has grown into her primary focus of treatment.  

In 2017, Michelle began working with Hope Lives!, which is a woman-owned non-profit organization for women undergoing treatment for breast cancer.   Michelle has received specialized education and an additional certification from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center to have the most up to date information.

In her free time, Michelle loves spending time with her two boys, Aaron and Isiah and her two rescue dogs, Brian and Eleanor.

After struggling with insomnia for nearly two decades, Holly's primary care physician recommended that she finally try a prescription medication.  However, Holly was determined to heal her condition without the aid of pharmaceuticals, so she sought out Chinese medicine. After her successful (and on-going) journey towards optimal health, her passion blossomed into a strong desire to help heal and educate others on how to take the reins of their lives to obtain their goals of living happy, healthy and balanced lives.  

 

Holly earned her Doctor of Acupuncture from Pacific College of Health and Science in 2021. She earned her Master of Science in Acupuncture from the Colorado School of Traditional Chinese Medicine (CSTCM) in Denver, Colorado in April 2016.  She also holds a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from CSU.

 

In 2017, Holly began working with a woman-owned, non-profit organization serving women undergoing breast cancer therapy called, Hope Lives!  She is enthusiastic about offering supportive care to improve the quality of life for our cancer patients.  In order to ensure the latest knowledge in treating oncology patients, Holly has received additional and specialized education and certification from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.

 

Over the years, Holly has developed a passion for addressing complex challenges, while providing high quality care to our patients. 

 

When Holly is not at the clinic, she enjoys spending time with her family and traveling the world.
