                Dr. Liz Roper L.Ac DACM

Dr. Roper began her journey majoring in Chemistry because she loved to understand the underlying workings in life. She felt that there was still something missing.  You can break life down into the smallest units but none of it matters unless you also see the whole.


To delve deeper she decided to study Classical Chinese Medicine.  She attended graduate school a total of 4 years at the Academy For Five Element Acupuncture in Gainesville, FL August of 2014 and obtained a Masters of Science in Acupuncture and also finished the Chinese Herbology program earning her certification.


She then went on to become nationally certified as a Diplomate of Acupuncture by the NCCAOM and continues to maintain this through endless commitment to continuing education.


To further her commitment to her patients and the medicine she continued on to receive her Doctorate in Chinese Medicine from the Pacific College of Health and Science in 2020. 


Dr. Roper lives locally here in Golden, CO She grew up north of Pittsburgh, PA and moved all around Georgia during her twenties.  She decided to settle down and grow her roots here in Colorado with her Husband, two daughters, and 2 wild pups.  She is a lover of mountain biking, skiing and enjoys seeing live music as much as she can possibly schedule in.  She dabbles in painting as a way to relax but most of her joy is found playing with her family discovering the outdoors and her community!  

"Let me help you on your journey to health, self-awareness and self-love."
