My primary goal is to provide high quality health care using my knowledge in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. Patients can feel confident in knowing that they are in a caring and respectful environment where trust and precision are key.
My journey in the health field started while I was a student at Monmouth University where I received a Bachelors in Science in Health Studies and a Certificate in Gerontology. After graduating I continued my education in alternative medicine at Kula Kamala Yoga School. Immediately after becoming a Certified Yoga Instructor, I went on to study Acupuncture at Eastern School in New Jersey. I graduated the Masters level program with the knowledge in Five Element style, TCM style, and Kiiko Japanese Style Acupuncture. September 2016 I completed the 18 month intensive TCM Herbal Certificate program at Eastern School.
Since Graduating I have had extensive education in the use of electric stimulation and acupuncture, also known as Neuropuncture and EAMedicine; as well as Cosmetic Acupuncture and Microneedling. During the winter of 2020 I was fortunate to study with one of my teachers, Tiffany Carole, in Sri Lanka learning how to incorporate essential oils in acupuncture treatments to treat at the mind, body, and soul level.
I am dedicated to continuously learning and studying health, acupuncture & microneedling while expanding public awareness of the benefits natural medicine can bring into people's lives. Currently, I am studying at Pacific College of Health & Science to complete my Doctorate in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine.

The BioMat is filled with amethyst crystals and produces far infrared heat. Compared to a heating pad the BioMat can evenly transfer far more heat into the body leading to great therapeutic value. Benefits include relieving anxiety, repairing soft tissue, relieving pain, improving circulation, improving skin, increasing metabolism, boosting immune system, and detoxification.
Microneedling is a cosmetic treatment based on the skin’s natural ability to heal & repair itself.
In this procedure, Cara uses the medical grade Microessence microneedling pen that she co-developed. During treatment 'micro-injuries' to the superficial layer of skin are created allowing the healing process and induction of collagen to take place.
Microneedling reduces visibility of fine lines, wrinkles, scars, and hyperpigmentation.
Tone and texture will dramatically improve resulting in firmer, smoother, and younger looking skin.
Cupping is commonly used in conjunction with acupuncture and helps to loosen muscles, rid the body of toxins, and reduce pain. I describe cupping as a reverse deep tissue massage where instead of pushing on the muscles and fascia we are pulling on them.
Cupping does leave temporary marks and is not for everyone. If interested please ask about cupping in the office to learn more!
