Dr. Ember Carianna

Dr. Ember Carianna

Dr. Ember Carianna is a Florida licensed Acupuncture Physician specializing in natural health care for the treatment and prevention of disease and the optimization of health and wellness.  She treats individuals of all ages and health status with a wide variety of diagnoses, especially people with chronic or recurrent illness, for the prevention of illness, or for health optimization.

Her medical philosophy is based on natural medical principles; treatment of the whole person, not just their disease, trying to uncover and treat the causes of disease rather than forever masking symptoms, emphasizing self-care, and patient education and prevention, whenever possible.  Treatment plans are very individual and Dr. Carianna believes in the use of the least invasive medical treatment that is effective, and of course, she refers to other medical professionals, conventional or alternative, if she believes the patient would benefit most elsewhere.  She focuses on the use of homeopathy, acupuncture, botanical medicine, and nutritional medicine.

EDUCATION AND LICENSING:

Dr. Carianna received her degree in Chinese Medicine from the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine (OCOM) in 1988, and a doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine from the National College of Naturopathic Medicine (NCNM) in 1987.  She also earned certification in Homeopathic Medicine by the National College of Naturopathic Medicine, passed national acupuncture board exams and was granted a Diplomate in Acupuncture by the National Commission for the Certification of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM), as well as passing the NPLEX board exams.  She received a naturopathic medical license in Oregon in 1987 and in Connecticut in 1988.  She received her acupuncture license in Massachusetts in 1988 and has been licensed as an acupuncture physician in Florida since 1990. Although Florida has had statutes governing Naturopathic medicine since 1904, the state has had no Board of Naturopathic Examiners granting licensure since 1974 so Dr. Carianna currently practices only and strictly within the scope of the statutes of the Florida Board of Acupuncture. Acupuncture physicians in the state of Florida can utilize a variety of alternative medical therapies including homeopathic preparations, nutritional and dietary medical approaches, botanical medicine, and of course acupuncture and related therapies.
