Meet Elizabeth


Elizabeth Carpenter, MS, LAC, ARTT, Cl.Hyp. is a hypnotherapist, acupuncturist, herbalist, and healer who has helped thousands of people recover their health and transform their lives.

Her 1:1 sessions, speaking, and teaching are driven by a passion to help people access and harness their phenomenal capacities for healing, wellbeing, accomplishment.

The body's problems, mental and emotional anguish, powerlessness are all unnatural states that shift when we know how to use our natural capacities.

Nature has endowed humans richly. Our most current science tracks us straight back to our spiritual nature, an integrated state within, where healing, love, achievement, courage and joy come easily.



My work helps people access and leverage an integrated state within themselves, that activates their innate capacities for healing, fulfillment, love, achievement.

I’ve spent a lifetime working with patients and clients, and also studying, seeking, exploring.

My mission is simply to share what I’ve learned with those who are open to hearing, so it changes their lives for the better.

It’s all connected – wellness, abundance, business, relationships, love, joy.



I came to medicine, and to mind-body practices, as a patient. A patient in need of a miracle.

While dancing for the first big company of my career, an injury put me into crisis.

Biomedicine couldn't help me. I was just 26 years old, on the verge of losing everything I’d worked for.

And that's when I finally, reluctantly, opened myself to mind-body medicine.

I went for physical help, but what actually transpired was a complete transformation, a life makeover.

The miracle I experienced called me in a very deep place within, to become someone who could do for others what that healer had done for me.



When you are sick you don’t just have a medical diagnosis or a symptom. You have an experience -- an experience that includes how you feel, what’s going on physically, what you're hopeful about, what you’re afraid of, how others are affected.

When you are in the grips of emotion, like anxiety or fear or guilt, you don’t just feel a certain way, you have a handicap. Your whole life is filtered and limited by it.

When you face an obstacle, a limit that you can’t seem to get past, you are stuck not just in your pursuit, but your relationships -- to yourself, to others, to your work, TO your future prospects.

So much is at stake.

Yet, Nature, Consciousness, the Universe, God - however you conceive of it - has endowed you with nearly supernatural abilities to heal, to release emotional pain, to understand and overcome, and to harness your mind to do its real job, which is to encourage you through life and to help you achieve and get what you want and need.

It’s all there, waiting for you to access, activate, and use.

But you have a gap.  You do not know how.

And that is because you've learned things that are simply not true, according to both current science, and to the wisdom of all enduring spiritual paths and healing traditions.

You were most likely taught:

  • that medicine is something done to you.
  • that genes are something beyond your control.
  • that brain chemistry is arbitrary.
  • that hard work and IQ are the keys to success.
  • that aging takes a harsh toll.

But the truth is quite different.  And that's where up-to-date medical science and enduring ancient spiritual paths and healing traditions both agree and converge.

I have helped more people than I can count with “bad genes,” and far from happy childhoods transform misfortune into extraordinary  health and authentic fulfilling lives.

You have a nearly supernatural ability to heal, experience love, learn and achieve. When you are able to access and leverage your innate capacities:

  • You’re able to trigger your body to heal on demand.
  • Your emotions become guides rather than tormentors.
  • Your intuition skyrockets.
  • Your problem solving is creative.
  • You like and approve of yourself.
  • You learn quickly.
  • You have great energy that attracts good people and good things.
  • You are resilient.
  • You are optimistic and productive.

Our work together is transformation. We will activate your ability to heal, teach your mind to become your servant, transform emotional pain into deep connection, self-trust and joy within, and master the art of programming yourself for achievement.

You're wired for phenomenal love, health and success.

I look forward to connecting with you, and helping you claim what you want most.

Take good care,



Sometimes I a cat...
I've had nine lives.

I came to medicine, and to mind-body practices, as a patient. A patient in need of a miracle. And that’s exactly what I got.

While dancing for the first big company of my career, an injury put me into crisis.

Biomedicine couldn't help me. I was just 26 years old. And I was on the verge of losing my job and everything I’d worked for.

And that's when I finally, reluctantly, opened myself to mind-body medicine.

I went for physical help, but what actually transpired was a complete transformation in my mind, health, and potential. I got a new life.

I was lucky to be referred to an incredible woman.  After the miracle of avoiding a career-ending surgery, I trusted her.  I had a laundry list of ailments from digestive to gynecologic to what may have been Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.  And every single one of those was healed.

But the work also facilitated a radical shift in my consciousness.

Everything about how I perceived myself, my potential, and my role in my own life transformed.

It also changed my life plan.  I'd always intended to go to law school and join the family firm when I was ready to leave the stage.

But the miracle I had experienced called me in a very deep place within my heart, to become someone who could do for others what that acupuncturist and healer had done for me.

I would do whatever it took to acquire the medical knowledge, degrees, skills, and wisdom to be someone who could facilitate the kind of all-encompassing profound transformation that had occurred for me.

And so, a month after my last day of dance company life, I entered Chinese medicine school. I opened my private practice in 1998. I've been expanding and deepening in the fields of medicine, mind-body healing, and spirituality ever since.

I've been privileged to work with thousands of patients, to teach hundreds of students, to engage with dozens of audiences.

My mission is simple:  Help as many people as possible unleash their almost supernatural potential to heal and to create beautiful, fulfilling lives.

If a problem, or several problems, is stealing your life, please reach out. You deserve great health and an authentic, fulfilling  extraordinary life!
