Dee Gorski - Acupuncturist & Thrive Team Manager
Dee Gorski - Acupuncturist & Thrive Team Manager

Dee (they/she) found their way to acupuncture meridian therapy through martial arts research. Discovering styles based in manipulating meridians and acupoints, they began studying acupressure and shiatsu manuals for understanding of the meridians and points. For years they used what they learned to help friends and family (and themself, of course) with minor ailments while continuing to work in IT help desks. After completing their bachelors, they promptly went to Southwest Acupuncture College (SWAC) in Boulder where they completed their Master of Science in Acupuncture. Dee was attracted to the programs at SWAC because of their pragmatic focus on moving students toward licensure as well as their versatility of styles available to study. While there, Dee focused their studies on meridian therapies and esoteric styles that centered around the spirit and harmony with universality. They resonated with Tui Na (Grasp and Pluck) manipulation as well as the classic medical conceptions they studied involving the 8 extraordinary vessels, harmonizing the 5 elements, and moving pathologies using divergent meridians, and trained in these methodologies through coursework and supervised clinicals. After completing licensure, in 2016, Dee volunteered services providing NADA protocol treatments to the residents and staff at the Safehouse Progressive Alliance for Nonviolence shelter and launched a small house-call practice, largely providing acupuncture and tui na services in Boulder and Longmont. The next year they came to work at Thrive (then Fort Collins CommUnity Acupuncture and Massage) and has since been certified in Usui Ryoho Reiki and Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture. Dee's experience at Thrive gives her a large breadth of knowledge and ability to work with a wide range of issues with our patients.
