Acupuncturist

Dr. Christopher Carton is an NCCAOM Board Certified and North Carolina State licensed Acupuncturist. He graduated from Pacific College of Health and Science in New York with a Master of Science and Doctorate degree in Acupuncture. He also holds a Clinical Certification for Stress, Anxiety, and Emotional Regulation from the HeartMath Institute. Chris has a passion for understanding stress and its role in disease and health through its impact on the nervous system.

Chris’ treatment philosophy revolves around working synergistically with your own body’s innate ability to heal, repair, and find balance. He achieves this by providing a safe, welcoming, non-judgmental treatment space and uses his knowledge in eastern and western medical science to administer the highest quality holistic care. Chris is a practitioner of Frequency Specific Electro-acupuncture which allows him to tap into your body’s nervous system and elicit the release of natural pain killers and other neurotransmitters to help you out of pain and feel better faster. He has successfully treated all types of musculoskeletal pain with this technique including shoulder, elbow, wrist, neck, back, ankle and knee pain.

Chris is also passionate about supporting people with mental health concerns, digestive issues, women’s health issues, and stress. He believes that the power of acupuncture lies in its ability to put your body in the best physiological state so it can heal. He is a teacher at heart and loves to explain his treatments and educate his patients on all things health and wellness.

When not practicing Acupuncture, Chris co-hosts and produces a successful podcast with this brother Kevin, a certified life coach, called the Science & Spirituality Podcast. As of December 2020, it was ranked one of the top 200 educational podcasts on Spotify. He also loves to read, and spend time outdoors with his girlfriend and dog.
