A little about Carrie:

Growing up in a family of natural healthcare practitioners, Carrie Wilhelm has always been passionate about health and how the human body works. Her uncle, a chiropractor, was her first line of health care as a child and eventually became her employer as she worked her way through college. After school Carrie moved to Colorado where she managed a chiropractic clinic with several types of natural healthcare providers. It was while working there that she realized her desire to become an acupuncturist.
