Carrie Murphy, LAc specializes in integrative internal medicine, working primarily with patients who are also undergoing biomedical treatment for conditions such as heart disease, high blood pressure, cancer, fibromyalgia, IBS, reflux, anxiety and insomnia. Her main focus is to help patients maximize their vitality while minimizing the number of medications and surgeries they have to undergo. Prevention is the highest form of Chinese medicine, and Carrie also enjoys working with patients who are not ill but feel the stresses of life are beginning to affect their well-being, and want to do something to avoid illness; and patients looking for support during times of healthy change such as pregnancy and menopause. 

She works with a diverse group of patients, from performing artists to corporate lawyers, and welcomes cultural diversity in all its forms. All are welcome.
