Carie Martin obtained her Masters in Acupuncture from the Colorado School of Traditional Chinese Medicine in 2012, is nationally Board Certified by the NCCAOM, and licensed in Washington State.

Her approach is holistic and hands-on.  A lifelong athlete, as well as a yoga and spin instructor, Carie has extensive knowledge of the body, and a special interest in the way it works.  She believes that health and balance are a personal journey, one that will have a different meaning for each and every patient that she treats.  In 2008, a work-related injury led Carie to acupuncture, in a community-style clinic.  Drawn to the supportive and healing atmosphere that the clinic embodied, she was soon reading all she could on the subject, and changed her life path to help others access this ancient healing art.  She strives to create this same experience for her own patients, whether they are suffering from pain, stress, sickness, dissatisfaction, or a host of other ailments that cause people to seek out Acupuncture as an option to restore them to their optimum health.  A member of POCA, the People’s Organization for Community Acupuncture, Carie is passionate about bringing affordable acupuncture to all those who wish to receive it.
