Charleen Whipple DOM, MSTCM


With Dual Bachelor of Science degrees in Sports Medicine and Nutrition from Colorado State University, I embarked on my journey to practicing Chinese Medicine in 2009 at The Colorado School for Traditional Chinese Medicine. The holistic approach of Chinese Medicine provides me with the opportunity to treat the entire patient; Mind, Body, and Spirit. Incorporating my knowledge of western medicine provides me with a greater understanding of the patient and the ability to treat from a dual perspective. With six years of outpatient rehab experience and ten years in private practice, I am passionate about getting people out of pain and back to their optimal health. The certifications in injection therapy, advanced cupping techniques, sports acupuncture, and LLT Laser therapy ensure that I have the skills needed to help my patients. I love the field of Chinese Medicine as it gives me the opportunity to help my patients find a natural, lasting form of healthcare. With caring, compassion, education, and empowerment, I feel that every individual is capable of living the life they desire.

As a Colorado native I love anything outdoor and active. When not in the clinic I am spending time with my husband and our crazy 4 year old!

Mandy Friedman

Massage Therapist

Mandy has been a Massage Therapist since 2007. During her 15-year career, she has provided pain management and increased mobility for pro athletes from the Oakland Raiders and the Sacramento Kings, helped patients with autoimmune disorders to achieve a better quality of life, and provided relief and recovery for those who have suffered severe injuries due to auto or various other types of accidents. Mandy's passion for healing has led her to train and specialize in many different modalities throughout her career, including Craniosacral Therapy and Reiki. She customizes each session by evaluating your individual needs based on your medical history and checking your physical patterns to help determine if your condition is acute or chronic, stems from stress, physical or emotional trauma, or environmental factors.

As Hurricane Sandy refugees, we left Long Island seeking dry land! Found it in Austin, about six weeks after the Hurricane in December 2012. I finished my Masters of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine in December of 2015.

I was a computer programmer right out of college and worked in business and robotics for many years. Then I switched to finance and became a certified financial planner. After the financial crisis of 2008 I sold my practice and took so time off. One day I was walking down the street in NYC and it hit me to do acupuncture. It has been over ten years since that day and I just love acupuncture and everything about it!

From my entire family to you we wish you good health and prosperity.

Tamar Silberman 


Tamar Silberman has spent more than 20 years studying, exploring, treating and using alternative health modalities. She believes that the path to health is a journey of discovery. It’s not always easy, but it is always worthwhile! Your health is your biggest asset, take care of it.

At the age of 24, she was diagnosed with MS (multiple sclerosis) and with the treatment options given her and the gloom of what may come, she began to explore other ways to manage her health. Her diagnosis was the biggest gift.

Tamar has a Texas license of Acupuncture and is also a member of the NCCAOM (National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine) since 2010. She received her Master’s in East Asian Medicine from The Seattle Institute of Oriental Medicine (SIOM) in 2010 and practiced in Israel for several years. She is also a registered Hatha Yoga instructor and has studied other energy centered healing modalities.

Tamar holds a Master’s degree in Sociology focused on medical sociology, where she explored different systems of medicine as well as many perceptions of health, healing and disease.

Tamar is also a facilitator of “The Work” of Byron Katie, which transforms and liberates patterns of thinking.

When she is not at work or doing job related activities she is grateful for the time she has with her husband Victor and two young daughters, Isabella and Sophia.
