Meet Dr. Kailee Carlson, L.Ac, RN

Headshot of Kailee smiling

Welcome!  My name is Kailee and I am a Licensed Acupuncturist and a Registered Nurse with a Doctorate of Chinese Medicine with a Sports Emphasis.  I am extremely passionate about integrating my Eastern and Western medicine backgrounds to provide the ultimate outcomes for my patients. 


As an RN working in hospitals, I noticed there was a lack of preventative healthcare which is why I am extremely passionate about shifting the focus from "sick" care to "health" care.  As a result, I love talking to my patients about food therapy, movement, herbal medicine, breathwork, and everyday lifestyle changes that can make a huge difference in their day-to-day lives.

As an ultramarathoner and endurance athlete who has benefitted greatly from acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, I love treating mental health conditions, musculoskeletal injuries, preventative health, digestive issues, hormonal imbalances, and so much more.

A few things about me:

-I am a passionate endurance athlete

-I LOVE live music

-I have lived in 3 states (Minnesota, Hawaii, Washington)

-I love to travel (50 states, 9 countries, and counting!)

-Coffee shops & new restaurants bring me joy

-Long walks are my jam

I am so glad you are here!
