Treating Patients Worldwide

Meet Phiona Gitsham

Dr. Phiona Gitsham

Dr. Phiona Gitsham

Accredited practitioner of Nutrigenomics & Chinese Medicine

Beginning her formal training 23 years ago, Phiona has studied for 8 years at university gaining two degrees, graduating in 2006 with B.H.SC. Chinese Medicine and with a prior B.A in Drama, Dance and Music.

Since graduating from Chinese Medicine she has also become an accredited practitioner of Nutritional Genomics (nutrition for your genome). This field is a new and exciting area of specialized nutritional treatments for common genetic mutations that can negatively affect your health. One well known mutation that Phiona specializes in is MTHFR. If you have done your 23andme reports, or had genetic mutations diagnosed, and would like treatment combined with Chinese Medicine, Phiona can help you.

She is the first Chinese Medicine practitioner in Australia to become accredited in this field and is now available for consults in Boulder, CO, USA, and online for patients anywhere in the world.

Prior to studying Chinese Medicine, she has also undertaken a 5 year shamanic healing apprenticeship focusing on shamanic counseling, Seichim Reiki (hands on healing) and shamanic journey meditations.

While Phiona is undertaking her local Acupuncture License in Colorado, Acupuncture is not available. We hope to bring Acupuncture back into the clinic by the end of 2017. While Phiona has the title of Dr of Chinese Medicine/ Acupuncture in Australia, the title is different in Colorado and will be L.Ac.

During this time, Phiona is offering Health Coaching, Shamanic Counseling and Reiki for people in Colorado. Please inquire with your FREE 15 minute Introductory Consult about the services offered in your region.
