Carrie B. Corey, MS, LMT, LAc, ATC, Owner/Director

Carrie B. Corey, MS, LMT, LAc, ATC

Carrie attended Ithaca College, where she received a B.S. in psychology and a minor in athletic training. She then received her M.S. in athletic training from Ohio University. Carrie launched her career as an athletic trainer in a New England boarding school. It was here that her interest in hands-on medicine led her to pursue further training in massage at a school in Atlanta, where she taught massage for the next 6 years. Her exposure to Eastern healing traditions seemed to be the missing link in her understanding of the body and prompted her to pursue a Classical Acupuncture Master’s Program. In 2007, she moved to Bethesda, MD, where as a Licensed Massage Therapist and Acupuncturist, she served as the spa director for Kenwood Golf and Country Club.

Carrie has returned to Georgia to teach massage therapy again as a Licensed Massage Therapist in Georgia (MT012583), a Certified Athletic Trainer, and Licensed Acupuncturist.
