Kate Fleming, L.Ac., Dipl. OM, CPHPCA

Doctoral Candidate 

Kate Fleming earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from the University of Colorado and later returned to the classroom to earn her Master of Science degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from Southwest Acupuncture College. Kate is currently enrolled in the Doctorate of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (DAOM) program at the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in San Francisco. The DAOM program provides a dual specialization in women's health and pain management with an emphasis on integrative medicine. The DAOM degree is the highest level of education offered in Chinese medicine, supporting collaborative efforts in research, teaching and publication of scholarly work. In order to attend courses while still offering a high level of care and attention to her patients here in Denver, Kate travels to the bay area once per month for classes and clinical training. 

Kate is a Certified Provider of Hospice and Palliative Care Acupuncture (CPHPCA) as recognized by the National Association of Hospice and Palliative Care Acupuncturists. She is also certified in Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture, receiving training from world-renowned acupuncturist Mary Elizabeth Wakefield at Yo San University of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Los Angeles, California. 

Kate is an instructor at the Colorado School of Traditional Chinese Medicine here in Denver, where she teaches a course on integrative medicine. Kate is a Diplomat of Oriental Medicine as recognized by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) which includes certification in acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine and Clean Needle Technique. Kate is a member of the Acupuncture Association of Colorado (AAC) and the American Association of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (AAAOM).


In 2013, Kate completed a clinical externship at the Heilongjiang University Teaching Hospital in Harbin, China. This intensive study included daily rounds with prestigious and reputable doctors of Oriental Medicine in both in-patient and out-patient wards, dermatology, Ob/Gyn, oncology, physical rehabilitation, internal medicine, and pediatric departments. The Heilongjiang University Hospital is world renowned for its stroke rehabilitation facility in which acupuncture and other Oriental medical modalities are used to effectively treat hundreds of patients each day. Observing how acupuncture is practiced in a hospital setting strengthened Kate’s understanding and appreciation for what this medicine has to offer to her patients in the United States. 



Kate was raised in Boulder, Colorado where she was influenced by natural remedies and alternative healthcare from a young age. In her free time, Kate enjoys exploring what city living has to offer. She is actively training for her first half marathon and recently discovered the excitement of belly dancing! 


I look forward to helping you restore health, happiness and vitality.
