Erin Pass is a Diplomate in Acupuncture and Chinese Herbology. She is certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) and is licensed in the state of Colorado. She is also a member of the Acupuncture Association of Colorado. Erin considers herself a general practitioner who works with clients to help them reach their health goals. One of her favorite aspects of care is the intricate fabric that is woven by learning about someone’s life and working with them at different times on their journey. Erin has had the pleasure of working with both men and women to conceive children, support people going through cancer therapies, assist athletes with their sports performance as well as addressing acute injuries. She has also helped people greatly reduce or alleviate their chronic pain. Optimal health always includes finding ways to reduce systemic inflammation and a full intake is done to assess digestion, sleep, and other aspects of health. A fundamental tenet at the Acupuncture Clinic of Boulder is to bridge the gap between allopathic and eastern medicine. She holds hospital privileges at BCH and works with clients prior to and after surgeries to manage pain and speed healing, and to assist in labor and delivery.

In her free time, Erin enjoys camping, skiing, photography, travel, and yoga. She begins each day – rain, snow, or shine, hiking in the Boulder Foothills, with her dog, Oscar.

Cassandra takes pride in providing patient care with an open mind in an environment where you feel accepted and heard.

Cassandra is a graduate of Bastyr University in Kenmore, WA with a Masters in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. She is NCCAOM board certified, a diplomat in Oriental Medicine, and a licensed acupuncturist in the state of Colorado. 

Prior to working at the Acupuncture Clinic of Boulder, Cassandra worked for a non-profit organization, Spinal Cord Injury and Recovery Project (SCIRP), providing acupuncture to para and quadriplegics, secondary to spinal cord injuries. She has a strong interest in pain management, neuropathy, and traumatic brain injuries. She is excellent at treating neck and back pain.

As a mother of three, she also finds great joy in working with women through their fertility journeys, pregnancy, and postpartum.

Cassandra practices Qigong regularly; she feels tuning into spirit and connecting with Mother Earth helps provide access to a deeper layer of healing. She strongly believes in Chinese herbal medicine and food therapy to restore our balance, and heal physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

Outside of work, Cassandra loves spending time with her family, sailing, photography, and archery.
