Fort Collins Acupuncturist Terry Fox

I’m Terry Fox, your Fort Collins Acupuncturist.

Terry Fox, L.Ac. - Fort Collins Acupuncturist

I grew up in Wyoming, but I’ve lived in Northern Colorado since 2006.  In 1999, my mother was diagnosed with an autoimmune condition called Fibromyalgia. That put me on the road to becoming a Massage Therapist and ultimately a Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner.

For me, there are few things more exciting than witnessing the deep, positive transformation of my patients. Even if I won the lottery tomorrow, I’d still be coming in to work. I’m just that passionate about what I do!

I’m so blessed and grateful to be a Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner! And I’d love to show you how my work can be of service to you and yours.


Diana Horowitz and Amelia Vargas (Boulder, CO)

  • Integrative Microneedling for Acupuncturists (October 2019)

Diana Horowitz, L.Ac. and Amelia Vargas, L.Ac. and Licensed Esthetician, serendipitously discovered motorized microneedling independently of each other in 2015. As facial rejuvenation acupuncturists both trained in The Wakefield Technique, they strongly shared a belief in supporting a patient’s constitution during any facial rejuvenation acupuncture process. Through more than a year of experimentation, Diana and Amelia created their own holistic microneedling protocol to support the health of one’s skin and body/mind/spirit. In February 2016, they gained the support of the Acupuncture Association of Colorado in determining that microneedling is within an acupuncturists scope of practice, and became Microneedling Co-Chairs on the AAC’s Board of Directors.

Personal Life

I love my little family. Life’s beautiful. I’m blessed to be living here in Northern Colorado. I love being a Fort Collins Acupuncturist. In my spare time, I read sci-fi and fantasy novels. I love home brewing meads, beers, and liqueurs. And occasionally, I’ll display my face in a beard and mustache competition.
