“An acupuncture treatment from Kasie is different than any acupuncture that you may have experienced before. Kasie is an intuitive healer and she allows her intuition to guide her treatments. You can feel her healing energy from the moment she begins your treatment. Kasie is a true healer. “
Kasie Carlson’s health care philosophy is one of personal responsibility of her patients and of herself. Kasie believes in patients being advocates for their own healthcare and attempts to inspire her patients to take control of themselves. Kasie’s commitment to Acupuncture and Natural Medicine is exemplified in her own personal healthcare and that of her children, combined with her clinical practice of TCM.
Kasie is the owner of Calm Community Acupuncture, Inc in Safety Harbor, Florida. She works full time as a practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Growing up in Michigan, she was never exposed to Natural Medicine in any form and moving to California was her first exposure to TCM. After just one Acupuncture treatment, she wanted to learn more, began to research this ancient healing art and soon left her acting career in California and starting studying Traditional Chinese Medicine at the East West College of Natural Medicine in Sarasota, Florida. As a graduate student, Kasie focused her clinical specializations in gynecological disorders, infertility, and anxiety/depression, she learned quickly how effective acupuncture and herbal medicine can be in combatting these syndromes. She studied directly under Dr. Shan Liang, an MD in China with over 25 years of experience in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Kasie has supplemented her training in Traditional Chinese Medicine with extensive training in Labor and Delivery, becoming a Doula certified by DONA and trained by Candy Mueller, the Bay area’s premiere Doula trainer. Kasie has attended numerous births and is always on call to help new Moms with nursing, lactation assistance, and post partum depression. Her nutritional knowledge is extensive. Having 3 children of her own has provided her with unparalleled abilities to understand and treat the youngest of patients, including babies! Yes, you can do acupuncture on babies! Kasie’s referrals in the community cannot be measured by numbers, in fact, it’s safe to say that she is treating more patients in the Tampa Bay area than many acupuncturists combined.
Kasie has provided speeches on Multiple Sclerosis, she has spoken directly to many of the local support groups, as well as speaking for fibromyalgia awareness week. She treats numerous patients suffering with ALS and has directly addressed the ALS support groups in the Bay Area. Kasie was asked to address the women of the Tampa Bay Community, through Morton Plant Mease’s Month of the Woman, where she was able to articulate the many ways that women can take charge of their health, naturally. She is also part of the team that is the virtual gastric band for weight loss program! Kasie provides the nutritional counseling and of course, prescribes Chinese herbal formulas and does the acupuncture for the program.
