Allie Dodge grew up in Washington, DC. She graduated Phi Beta Kappa from the University of Michigan with a B.A. in Psychology in 1999. She moved to Colorado in 2004 to begin studying Acupuncture.
Allie completed the 4-year Masters Program in Classical Five-Element Acupuncture from the Institute of Taoist Education and Acupuncture (ITEA) in Louisville, CO in February 2008, and she has had a private practice in Boulder, CO since September 2008.
In the Spring of 2011, Allie became a faculty member at ITEA – a job position that allows her to embody the teachings of Classical Five-Element Acupuncture on an even deeper level. She currently teaches 1st and 2nd year students.
Allie is certified in Mind-Body Medicine from the Center for Mind-Body Medicine in Washington, DC. She has been leading and facilitating Mind-Body Skills Groups since 2011. Allie also offers individual sessions for those who wish to learn mind-body skills in a one-on-one setting.
In 2012, Allie and her husband became the owners and land stewards of Pachamama Farm in Longmont, CO. In 2014, they changed the name to Pachamama Farm & Wellness as their vision for the farm is expanding to include more educational programs and healing services, in addition to growing pure food. In 2014, Allie will begin offering acupuncture services at Pachamama Farm, enabling her clients to receive treatments in a beautiful, peaceful, and healing setting.
In addition to seeing her clients and students transformed and healed by Classical Five-Element Acupuncture and empowered by mind-body skills, Allie enjoys being actively involved with Pachamama Farm & Wellness, taking dance classes, practicing yoga and meditation, being in nature, learning about plants and herbs, cooking local and organic meals with her husband, traveling, photography, and surrounding herself with the youthful, playful, and carefree nature of children and animals.
