Timoni Slusher L.Ac.
Growing up in the mountains and deserts of Colorado, I have a deep-rooted love and enthusiasm for adventure and for being outdoors. I am an avid mountain biker, hiker,
and trail runner. I enjoy yoga, swimming, and relaxing in the beauty of nature.
I love to work with athletes and fellow mountain bikers, of all levels from enthusiasts to the professional level. My skills, training and knowledge have helped my patients to recover from injuries, both chronic and acute, to increase endurance, performance level, and flexibility, and to maintain balance in their bodies.
I received my masters degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine from the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in San Diego, CA. My training consisted of over 3000 hours of extensive instruction in acupuncture techniques, herbal medicine, Chinese medical theory, and western medical theory. I have over 1000 hours of clinical experience treating various sports-related injuries and chronic pain syndromes. I have successfully treated digestive disorders, sleep disorders, depression and anxiety; and have treated various chronic autoimmune disorders such as multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue syndrome.
As an intern at Children's hospital where I treated children and young adults with diseases such as cancer, spina bifida, developmental disorders, lupus, chronic pain, and post-surgical recovery, I learned a lot about working as an integrated part of our current medical system. I look forward to working with my patients' whole healthcare team for the common benefit of health and well-being of my patients.
I am currently studying remotely as a doctoral fellow at the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine. My goals are to increase my knowledge and expertise as an integrative medicine doctor. I wish to improve the quality and widen the scope of our current medical system.
I am an Army veteran who served in Operation Iraqi Freedom. I have a strong feeling of camaraderie with my fellow veterans, and want to continue to volunteer my time and service to help my fellow vets. If you know of a vet in need, please don't hesitate to refer them to me. My services to vets are pro bono and on a donation-only basis. It is the least I can do.
Thank you for your time and attention to get to know me. I look forward to meeting you!
