Colleen Olphie-Lippmann

Colleen Olphie-Lippmann is a nationally board certified, Connecticut licensed Classically Trained Five Element Acupuncturist. Colleen earned a Master of Acupuncture degree from the Academy for Five Element Acupuncture in Gainsville, Florida. Prior to her studies at AFEA, Colleen received her Bachelor’s degree from Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts. 

Colleen came to Five Element Acupuncture as her journey in illness was hitting dead ends with western medicine. After a completely transforming first treatment, Colleen’s entire life course was redirected and serendipitously placed on the path of Five Element Acupuncture.  
Colleen brings her safe, nurturing, non-judgmental presence to everyone she works with. Her clients appreciate her authentic care for their needs, and her ability to bring results they can feel. She is grateful everyday for the ability to help transform other people’s lives with this incredible medicine. 
Colleen is an avid explorer and some of her travels have led her to walk the Camino de Santiago, a 500 mile spiritual pilgrimage in Spain, a trip to Brazil to see the healer John of God and to drive solo across the United States of America.
Colleen lives in Redding, CT, with her husband Josh, her son Samuel and their Cairn Terrier Romeo. Together as a family they love to hike, go to the beach and play ultimate Frisbee and Frisbee Golf.
