Carey Vickers, M.S., L.Ac.
I am a Pennsylvania-licensed acupuncturist. I earned my Master of Science degree with honors in Acupuncture from Tri-State College of Acupuncture in New York City, where I received extensive training in three styles of acupuncture: Traditional Chinese Medicine; Acupuncture Physical Medicine (APM), which integrates classical acupuncture with modern myofascial trigger point therapies; and Kiiko Matsumoto Japanese acupuncture (KM). I am also a trained in the Mei Zen style of cosmetic acupuncture.
My journey to acupuncture has been one of self-discovery. A near-death experience as a child and my family's adoption of my brother, who came from Vietnam with profound injuries from the war, left lasting impressions on my life. Later I had a personal health crisis that caused recurring episodes of neuralgia, leaving me with a deep sympathy for others suffering from intense chronic pain. From my life’s experiences, and coming to the realization that matters of health and wellness have always been present and foremost in my life, I feel it is my life's fulfillment to help others.
