Selena Perez, DC, LAc (contracted therapist: Boulder)
Dr. Selena is a dually licensed Chiropractor and Acupuncturist in the state of Colorado. Originally from Brighton, Michigan, she began her professional studies at Eastern Michigan University where she received her Bachelor of Science degree in Biology, minoring in Biochemistry. She then went on to pursue an accelerated 3.5 year-long Doctorate of Chiropractic program at New York Chiropractic College.
After a year of vigorous didactic studies in chiropractic, Selena concurrently began her Master’s degree program in Acupuncture through the Finger Lakes School of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. This 32-month program immersed her in the history, foundation, and application of acupuncture. While there, she was trained in adjunctive therapies such as cupping, Asian bodywork, acupressure, moxibustion, and gua sha, among others.
With deep familial roots in the art of healing, Selena is passionate about alternative medicine and her ability to combine Eastern and Western concepts through chiropractic and acupuncture. Her ability to connect not only with patients’ and clients’ personalities but also their bodies has allowed Selena to truly make impactful differences with her patients’ and clients’ symptoms and lives.
Selena’s touch has been known to be gentle and calming, while still penetrating to deep tissue layers and different fascial planes. With her dynamic experience between different forms of healing and treating, Selena is able to take a well-rounded, individual approach to all her patients’ and clients’ care.
Experience: Since beginning practice, Dr. Selena has treated chronic and acute musculoskeletal dysfunction which includes backaches, headaches, extremity (elbow, knee, wrist, ankle) injuries/pain, anxiety and depressive disorders, fatigue, and menstrual irregularities. Her acupuncture styles include Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Japanese, and Trigger Point needling which she has integrated her chiropractic knowledge with to deliver specialized care.
Interests: Selena has pursued a lifelong journey of health and wellbeing. Growing up, she was a martial artist, swimmer, and gymnast. She continues to practice martial arts, previously a black belt instructor in Tae Kwon Do. In her free time, she enjoys stand up paddle boarding, reading, snow-sports, working out and eating a healthy, diverse diet.
