About Strength & Vitality Wellness Center

Hi, I’m Cara-Michele, licensed acupuncturist, nutrition counselor, personal trainer & the owner of Strength & Vitality Wellness Center.

My goal is to help you regain your mental and physical strength and vitality for the people and passions in your life that matter most.  I understand how hard it is to be creative, flexible, thoughtful, understanding, or playful when you are experiencing pain, sleepless nights, or anxiety and depression on a regular basis.  My job is ot help you feel mentally and physically stronger as quickly as possible without the use of surgery or medication and then give you the tools, practices, and resources for long lasting optimal wellness.

I am forever amazed at how regenerative and renewing the body can be if given the right tools. We should never settle for limited states of health without trying proven unconditional therapies, such as whole food nutrition, acupuncture, movement, and infrared sauna.  Many times what we accept as “just the way my body is,” is simply an imbalance that has existed for many years and is now being seen or felt. I can help you get rid of these imbalances and feel your best again so that you can focus more on the things you love and enjoy.
