“Dwell in Possibility”

Emily Dickinson

Acupuncture supports people through many circumstances of body, mind and spirit. To be in partnership with someone in their healing process, assisting them to access their own innate healing power, is truly a privilege and an honor.

Kate Carter, a National Board Certified (NCCAOM) Licensed Acupuncturist, has been in practice for over 17 years. She served for 10 years as an associate faculty member of the Tai-Sophia Institute for the Healing Arts in Laurel, MD, from which she graduated. As part of her program, she studied at the College of Traditional Acupuncture in Royal Leamington Spa, UK, with the late Dr. J.R. Worsley, world-renowned for his Classical Five Element System. Kate is currently serving as a member of the Maryland State Board of Acupuncture.

Kate has been in acupuncture treatment herself for over 30 years and credits it with her excellent health and ability to ride life’s roller coaster of emotions and challenges. Her two daughters are also recipients of acupuncture treatment.

What Conditions Benefit from Acupuncture?

Acupuncture not only addresses physical symptoms, it also helps with emotional and mental distress such as grief and loss, heartache and feelings of being out of control of your life, anxiety and fearfulness, worry and obsessive thinking, anger and hopelessness, and general stress and tension.

Kate particularly enjoys working with women wanting to conceive, people in pain, and with those who say, “I’ve just not been feeling like myself.” She also enjoys working with those in transition in their lives, and who are ready to challenge themselves to move forward. She also sees children struggling with stomach distress, allergies, sleeplessness, and anxiety.

The World Health Organization recognizes acupuncture in the treatment of the following conditions

  • Respiratory
  • Eye, Mouth
  • Gastro-Intestinal
  • Neurological and Musculo-Skeletal
