About Us

My primary goal is to provide high quality health care using my knowledge in Acupuncture and Chinese 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.  In 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. In July 2022 I will be graduating with my DACM, Doctorate of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, from Pacific College of Health and Science based out of San Diego, California.

    I have received a series of microneedling treatments from Cara (Be Well Acupuncture) over the course of several months. Following my first treatment, I noticed several benefits, including tighter skin and a significant reduction in breakouts. … More After multiple treatments, I have experienced results in three areas: an obvious reduction in sun spots around my cheeks and forehead, a reduction in fine lines around my eyes and forehead, and an end to acne around my chin and jaw line. In addition to the benefits for my skin, the overall experience at Be Well is something I look forward to for complete relaxation. The physical space is calming and beautiful and Cara is knowledgeable, talented, professional, and individualizes treatments in order to ensure results. Highly recommend!

    I first saw Cara after weeks of trying physical therapy and chiropractic adjustments with no success for my severe lower back pain. I had heard about acupuncture and i thought id give it a shot. Cara came highly recommended to me and she … More was able to get me into her schedule within hours of my phone call. She couldn’t have been more thorough when evaluating me and discussing treatment. I felt so comfortable from the moment i walked into the office. After the first treatment i felt almost 100% better which was amazing to me. I have been seeing Cara now for almost 2 years. I try to maintain my visits with her because she truly relieves any pain, manages my stress, helps with my sleep, and worked with me throughout my pregnancy. Cara works wonders on my mind body and soul. I appreciate her professionalism and her dedication to her trade. I would highly recommend her to anyone i know. Thank you Cara for all that you do!!
