Greg Shim L.Ac., M.Ed., has been practicing Traditional Chinese Medicine for over a decade in Castle Rock, CO. He was the Education Consultant for the Colorado School of Traditional Chinese Medicine where he also taught in the advanced student clinic. Greg is NCCAOM Board certified and licensed to practice acupuncture in Colorado. He
was the President of the Acupuncture Association of Colorado where he helped write and create the new Colorado practice act for Acupuncture! He is
a 2003 graduate of Five Branches University.
Greg is also on the forefront of Injection Therapy in Colorado where his forms are used by the American Acupuncture Council as the basis for other acupuncturists to be able to practice this treatment protocol. He is one of two Licensed Acupuncturists in Colorado recognized by the American Acupuncture Council to teach Injection Therapy, and studied in Milan, Italy in 2008 at the headquarters of Guna, Inc., the manufacturers of Physiological Regulating Medicine. He is Castle Rock's first Certified Kinesio Taping Practitioner acupuncturist.
Greg has also studied under Dr. Datis Kharrazian and continues to broaden his knowledge base with the use of Comprehensive Bio-screening for those patients who either wish to know more about where they stand nutritionally, or who seem to be stuck in a rut of diet and exercise but don't lose weight.
Greg's unique blend of acupuncture, herbs, massage and stretches, exercises, cupping, Kinesio Tape, injection therapy, breathwork, controlled cold training, and dietary analysis and considerations allow for fewer treatments and greater healing overall. While Greg does not consider himself a healer, he does consider himself a facilitator in your healing. He believes that the body is made to fix itself, and that given what it needs, the body can overcome most problems. Exercise, simple nutrition, and movement are the 3 core components of Greg's style of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Greg enjoys spending time with his wife and daughter, cooking, gardening, playing instruments, woodworking, and playing on his pull-up bar. He is also the author of, "Primal Walk".
