About Our Practitioner

Elizabeth Roper began her journey by studying Chemistry and found that there was still something missing.


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 became certified in Chinese Herbology.


She then went on to become nationally certified as a Diplomate of Acupuncture by the NCCAOM


Elizabeth 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 rambunctious 1 year old Golden Retriever.  She is a lover of music and enjoys seeing live music at Red Rocks.  She dabbles in painting as a way to relax but most of her joy is found playing with her family discovering the outdoors!  

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