Carolyn Provencher


Carolyn Provencher is a national board certified acupuncturist serving the Marquette area. She attended Northern Michigan University before receiving her Masters of Science in Acupuncture from Southwest Acupuncture College in Boulder, Colorado. Carolyn then went on to receive her Diplomate of Acupuncture certification in 2014. Carolyn treats her patients using a Taoist Five-Element model, a system that not only addresses key symptoms of dis-ease, but takes the whole of a person’s being into consideration: Mind, Body, and Spirit together as one for a holistic approach to healing. Carolyn is author of A Journal of Self-Reflection & Healing and is coauthor of the book Tao Meets Now, a book written for acupuncturists on working with the Five-Element acupuncture theory. In her free time, you’ll find Carolyn hiking with her husband, Evan, around the beautiful Marquette landscapes and participating in local dance groups.
I grew up in a very health conscious home. My mother and grandmother both believed that healthy eating was the key to longevity and happiness, and I couldn’t have agreed more.
Despite my passion for wellness, I began to struggle with disordered eating at the age of fifteen.
I sought help for my struggles ten years later, but not before I tore down the majority of my support structure in rage and hurt. I entered therapy, part of which entailed fifteen weeks in an intensive outpatient program. During that time, I participated in talk therapy, art therapy, and received acupuncture treatments. It was then that I began to get my life back on track.
Acupuncture helped me to internalize the work I was doing in my other therapy programs more deeply. It provided me with a space to re-connect with my body in a way that no other therapy did. My appetite started to return, and slowly but surely, I began to feel a genuine sense of gratitude for the wonderful things my body was doing for me on a daily basis. Eating disorders put my body into a state of chaos; acupuncture helped bring peace and order to that chaos, giving me a place from which to grow.
My personal experiences are the reason I believe in a bottom-up philosophy of healing. I have learned that wellness is not something that happens overnight. In order for symptoms to be resolved, we must create a sturdy foundation to stand on that utilizes a variety of techniques. I provide acupuncture treatments that are tailored to your specific needs and unique story - your partner in healing, one step at a time.

In health, wellness, and harmony
Carolyn Provencher, R.Ac

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a system of complementary medicine that involves inserting very fine needles into the skin and tissues. It has been used for centuries in the East to alleviate pain and treat various physical, mental, and emotional conditions. With more and more people turning to healing modalities that are safe and holistic, acupuncture has become recognized as a powerful form of medical treatment in the West. To find out more about the acupuncture click here for a link to my blogpost about it. Modern acupuncture integrates ancient acupuncture theories as well as today’s medical knowledge of anatomy. Acupuncture has been used as an effective form of treatment for conditions that include, but are not limited to:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Chronic dis-eas
  • Muscle relaxation
  • Chronic and acute pain
  • Digestive issues

Does it hurt?
You may experience slight feelings of heaviness and distention, or light tingling or itching sensations. These symptoms are usually mild, and often indicate that a new healing processes is being facilitated within the body. If physical sensations do occur, they usually subside in 5-10 minutes.
Your comfort during sessions is very important. If you experience symptoms that interfere with your ability to relax, simply let me know and I will adjust your treatment accordingly.
