16 TCM Beauty Secrets – Ancient Wisdom for Modern Foxes

On this episode of The Get Foxy Show, Licensed Acupuncturist, Massage Therapist, and Aesthetic Acupuncture Specialist, Terry Fox, Northern Colorado’s leading expert in helping women look younger through Natural Aesthetic Enhancement, shares 16 Traditional Chinese Medicine Beauty Secrets.

When he was 17, Terry’s mother was diagnosed with a chronic and painful autoimmune disease – fibromyalgia. Inspired to relieve her pain, Terry was lead to the Utah College of Massage Therapy. Once graduated, he helped create the first hospital-based Massage Therapy program in the state of Wyoming. Four years after, Terry progressed into Acupuncture. In only three years, he earned his Master’s Degree from the Colorado School of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

In 2006, he founded Artesian Spring Oriental Medicine in Fort Collins, Colorado. Terry also served as Secretary for the Acupuncture Association of Colorado, and was voted Best Colorado Acupuncturist 2015 and 2016 according to The Experience Pros radio show. Many of Terry’s teachers are internationally known masters of Cosmetic Acupuncture, Constitutional Facial Acupuncture, and Classical Chinese Medicine – Ron Rosen, Denise Ellinger, Martha Lucas, Wudang Chen, Ping Zhang, and Mary Elizabeth Wakefield. Terry’s focus is helping women reclaim their softness and radiance without resorting to Botox®, fillers, or plastic surgery. 

He leads and inspires women to reconnect with their own innate healing capacity, return to their authentic self, and cultivate their own unique personal power – their “inner fox.”

Terry believes each patient is a precious child of God and should be treated accordingly.. Consequently, he’s been described as “knowledgeable, caring, and professional.” And, he strives continually to live up to that description. Terry doesn’t just treat “skin deep,” he sees deeper and works on a holistic level. Women come to him for his expertise, but they trust him because of his gentle nature and keen intuition. And, his patients love him because his heart is wholly connected to their transformation. 

Outside of the office, you can find Terry relaxing with his wife and two boys. Also, he avidly reads sci-fi and fantasy novels, especially books by Brandon Sanderson. He likes to craft his own beer, mead, and liqueurs. And, occasionally he competes in local beard and mustache competitions.
