David Carter (Mashpee)
Acupuncture & Associated Therapies
David became interested in Chinese medicine and acupuncture in 2008 while he was studying in Wuhan, China for a year on a scholarship from the Chinese government.
His formal training began in San Francisco, where he attended the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine. He then moved to Austin, TX and attended AOMA Graduate School of Integrative Medicine and went on to study pulse diagnosis with the renowned Dr. William Morris.
David has also studied integrative medicine in a hospital in Chengdu, China while taking classes at the Chengdu University of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
In addition to working in AOMA's acupuncture clinic, David also performed acupuncture at the Veterans Affairs clinic treating Veteran's musculoskeletal issues, and the Texas Neuro-Rehab Center, where he treated drug and alcohol addiction.
Though he is primarily an acupuncturist and herbalist with a focus on integrating Chinese and Western medicine, David has also intensively studied qi gong, tai chi, tui na massage, cupping & nutrition.
After growing up in Massachusetts, he is excited to return and be near family and friends.
David was first drawn to a career in healthcare when he went through the humbling, yet rewarding experience of helping and living with a close friend through the final months of her battle with cancer. There was little he could do, but his desire to be able to do more eventually led David to Chinese medicine.
His goal is to fill in the gaps where Western Medicine falls short and to merge the medical practices of east and west so as to better serve his patients.
