Diana's Education & Credentials
Diana Hermann, MAcOM, L.Ac.Licensed Acupuncturist
Owner, Acupuncture of the Rockies
Diana received her Master’s Degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine after completing a four-academic-year graduate program at the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine (OCOM) in Portland, Oregon. Academic and clinical education included a solid foundation in the theories and practices of Traditional Chinese Medicine that was well balanced with education in western sciences and the western understanding of the human body. Upon graduation, Diana continued her education and clinical training at the Nanjing University of Traditional Chinese Medicine (NUTCM) in Nanjing, People’s Republic of China, where she completed internships in both Chinese herbal medicine (Internal Medicine, Dermatology Department) and in acupuncture at the affiliated hospitals of NUTCM. In 2009, Diana launched a second business: Zi Zai Dermatology, in which she formulates and hand crafts topical skin care products with Chinese herbs.
Advanced TrainingSince a good practitioner’s learning should never end, Diana continues to pursue additional training in Oriental medicine annually by attending various continuing education seminars and taking post-graduate courses. In 2007 she completed an apprenticeship with one of the country’s leading sports medicine acupuncturists and in 2010 she became certified in Constitutional Facial Renewal Acupuncture. Diana has been in private practice since 1999 and has much experience treating a vast array of illnesses and conditions. Her specialties include, but are not limited to: chronic skin conditions, respiratory and other infections, autoimmune diseases, sports injuries, and general wellness.
Personal BackgroundDiana graduated from Colorado State University, Fort Collins, Colorado in 1995 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering. To maintain balance in her life, she began training in the martial arts (kung fu). This unexpectedly introduced her to Chinese medicine. Her fascination with this ancient healing art eventually guided her career down a new path. Diana continues to stay physically active by playing soccer and practicing Ashtanga yoga. Other interests and activities include making all kinds of herbal beauty and skin care products, hiking, snowboarding, telemark skiing, snowshoeing and travel (especially to warm, sunny beaches!).
