Michelle Dorak is thrilled to be working at Golden Root Acupuncture as an associate acupuncturist. She earned her Master’s degree in acupuncture from the Southwest Acupuncture College in Boulder, Colorado. Michelle is recognized by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCOAM) as a certified acupuncturist and is licensed by the state of Colorado. Michelle completed the Acupuncturists Without Borders Level 1 Training, Healing Community Trauma, in January of 2018. She feels acupuncture is an excellent way to support the journey of healing from mental, physical, and emotional trauma, and is eager to share this knowledge with the people she cares for.
Michelle is humbled to be working with the Mental Health Partners in Lafayette, Colorado, and their Moving to End Sexual Assault (MESA) program. Here she offers a weekly auricular acupuncture clinic to survivors of sexual assault.
Michelle has a bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science from Salisbury University and has taught yoga for over 10 years, both on the east coast and here in Colorado. In the Fall of 2019 she participated in the Veterans Yoga Project’s Mindful Resilience Training. This training supports one of Michelle’s goals of sharing her passion for yoga with veterans.
For fun, she loves to get outside with her adorable dog Sammie, go running and swimming, and spend time with family and friends.
