Claire was awarded her Acupuncture license in 2011 by the College of Traditional Acupuncture, in Hatton, where she studied Acupuncture full-time for 3 years at the oldest college in Europe (until its closure in 2012).

Resting Bitch Face – Terry Fox

Terry Fox, L.Ac

Struggling with Resting Bitch Face? You can change it naturally without Botox®, Fillers, and Plastic Surgery.

On this episode of The Get Foxy Show, Licensed Acupuncturist, Massage Therapist, and Aesthetic Acupuncture Specialist, Terry Fox, Northern Colorado’s expert in helping women look younger through Natural Aesthetic Enhancement, talks about Resting Bitch Face.

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

To me, each patient is a precious child of God and should be treated accordingly. Others have described me as “knowledgeable, caring, and professional.” And, I strive continually to live up to that description. I don’t treat “skin deep,” I see deeper and work on a holistic level. I encourage you to be the beauty you are!

Terry Fox, L.Ac.

In 2006, I founded Artesian Spring Oriental Medicine in Fort Collins, Colorado. Additionally, I’ve 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 my teachers are internationally known masters of Cosmetic Acupuncture and Classical Chinese Medicine – Ron Rosen, Denise Ellinger, Martha Lucas, Wudang Chen, Ping Zhang, Mary Elizabeth Wakefield, and Michelle Gellis. I help women reclaim their softness and radiance without resorting to Botox®, fillers, or plastic surgery. 

Outside of the office, you can find me relaxing with my wife and two boys. Also, I avidly reas sci-fi and fantasy novels, especially books by Brandon Sanderson. I love crafting my own beer, mead, and liqueurs. And, occasionally I’ll compete in local beard and mustache competitions.

Why Can’t I Stick To My Diet – Erin Wathen

Why Can't I Stick To My Diet Erin Wathen

Erin is a Holistic Health Coach, Certified Life and Weight Loss Coach, Food Addiction Counselor, and author of the best-selling book “Why Can’t I Stick To My Diet?

After realizing her lifelong struggle with her weight wasn’t due to a lack of exercise, but her food and more importantly the emotions she wasn’t dealing with that lead to the food, Erin began a quest.

This journey led her to become an Integrated Health Coach. After learning that she herself was addicted to Sugar and Artificial Sweetener, Erin detoxed herself and then became one of the world’s first Food Addition Counselors. In doing so, she traveled as far as Iceland to complete her training.

It was at this point that Erin decided to write her book “Why Can’t I Stick To My Diet” because she had been asking herself that question for decades and it was the wrong question! It wasn’t until Erin realized to take her knowledge of Health Coaching and Food Addiction together in her book she could help so many more people end emotional eating and stop yo-yo dieting and learn to eat right once and for all.

Health isn’t a number on the scale or how often we exercise, but our lives as a whole.
