Meagan Boudreaux – Nunnelly, L.Ac, M.S.O.M, explored several adventurous avenues before discovering acupuncture as her destined profession. She guided white water rafters in Buena Vista, led mountain bikers and climbers in Moab and even started her own triathlon club at Metropolitan State College. A two-time recipient of the Jesse Bollinger Athletic AchievementScholarship, Meagan was also a mogul skier for the Steamboat Springs Freestyle Ski Team. It was after an injury there that she unearthed new trails toward healing through massage, physical therapy, chiropractic work and acupuncture. With the arrival of her god-daughter from China, her studies in Health Sciences at Metro State, a burgeoning interest in eastern philosophies, and a job as a chiropractic assistant with East West Health Center, Meagan found her path, enrolling at the Colorado School of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
There, she studied Acupuncture and Chinese Herbology, worked at the school’s Chinese Herbal pharmacy and continued to observe at the health center, far exceeding the school field work requirements. After graduating in 2004 with a Masters of Science in Oriental Medicine, Meagan traveled alone to Harbin, a province in Northern China to continue her studies in acupuncture, gynecology, and Tui Na massage, gathering techniques and wisdom from local practitioners. Meagan is always broadening her knowledge of Traditional Chinese Medicine as it relates to common medical issues. She studied with fertility specialist Randine Lewis, PhD in Texas, Pediatrics and TCM with Michelle Uthoff – Campbell, and received her certificate in Facial Rejuvenation with Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs in New York with Virginia Doran, M.Ac., L.Ac., LMT. Most recently she studied Sports Medicine with Matt Callison and is currently enrolled in a year long Sports Medicine apprenticeship program with Whitfield Reaves in Boulder, CO. Before the birth of her two girls, she was a teaching assistant at the Colorado School of Traditional Chinese Medicine and led meditation groups for Camp Experience, (a mountain retreat for women).
Since establishing her own practice, Meagan has treated hundreds of patients, providing solutions for musculoskeletal pain, digestive health, women’s health, insomnia and much more. With an effervescent personality and a dedication to her craft, she often brings principles of her personal yoga practice along with spiritual wealth of wisdom and inspiration to her treatment. Meagan says acupuncture allows her to work in a safe and replenishing environment, “create” every day and remain true to her own health, while helping others understand the benefits of this time-honored healing tradition.
As a trail/ ultra-marathon runner, I have found that it is so critical to take care of minor issues before they become major injuries, and Meagan has helped me do just that! Over the last couple of years of training, she has worked intently with me to get me to the start line, and therefore the finish line, healthy! She’s attentive, inquisitive, thoroughly professional, but fun, too. I can’t recommend her highly enough!
I was having a lot of pain in my leg, due to Spondylolisthesis and it was suggested that Acupuncture might be a good option for me. I was a little nervous to even consider this, but was at my wits end and wanted to try a holistic approach, instead of more surgery and drugs. I found Meagan at the Center for Spine and she was covered with my insurance. I have many treatments with Meagan. She is very professional, compassionate, and listens very well to your issues and concerns. I remember one time; I had been stung about 8 times by a wasp the day before my treatment, and had welts all over my shoulder and back. I mentioned this to Meagan and she immediately did a special Detox with ear needles. I recovered quickly from the stings. She has been able to keep me from having a fusion surgery. I still have pain, but it is manageable. I would highly recommend Meagan for any Acupuncture treatment that you might want to try. She will definitely help you feel better and also put a smile on your face.
My quality of life was truly improved after having acupuncture with Meagan for chronic pain in my stomach for years. It’s nice to have pain free days! Thanks Meagan!!
