Welcome to Santa Cruz Acupuncture – Lela C. Carney

You’ve found the clinical practice website of Lela C. Carney, Licensed Acupuncturist.

There is so much you can do to enhance your health and wellbeing. This is especially crucial in these difficult economic times.

My commitment is to help you do so in the most efficient, cost-effective way so that you can care for yourself and your family, independent of the broken state of health insurance. Health care reform won’t happen in the foreseeable future, so it’s time to become informed and proactive – and take our “Health in Our Own Hands”.

Please visit my websites, www.lelaccarney.com/ for information on my work with trauma and stress using Somatic Experiencing and MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction) and www.alternativethyroidtherapy.com/ which describes the functional medicine aspect of my practice. And to explore some of the best self-care information I’ve gathered in my 26 years of practice, go to www.healthinourownhands.info . I hope you find the info there to be as helpful as have many of my patients over the years.

Soon I will have more information about my acupuncture practice here in Santa Cruz, California.

You can call my office: (831-479-3531) to schedule an appointment or speak with me about how I work.
