& Holistic Healthcare

Research finds acupuncture can positively alter regulatory systems of the brain & body (hormones, neurotransmitters, neurohormones, nerves, blood flow, immune cells) without side effects.

We include acupuncture in our approach to quality of life issues (pain, sleep, stress, digestion, energy, mental focus) as well as in the treatment of diagnosed conditions in partnership with your physicians.

Holistic healthcare identifies connections between the patient's health & wellbeing and his life & experiences.  According to your needs, goals & interests, tools such as diet or meditation may be integrated into your care, to help foster enduring positive outcomes.

Elizabeth Carpenter, MS., L.Ac.     


Welcome to Oriens Living.   My team and I are looking forward to the help we will provide you, and to partnering with you in your health & wellbeing goals.

One of my favorite pieces of conventional wisdom is, "Start where you're standing."  Wherever you find yourself on the health continuum is the best place to start. 

about elizabeth 



Oriens has a comprehensive & integrative Fertility Program.  

Most patients come to Oriens discouraged and frustrated, with protracted medical and TTC histories.  And yet they go on to become mothers.

We believe the turn around rests on three key differences in our approach: the east-west integrative assessment which often turns up missed items, the layered treatment strategy we design uniquely for her in response, and the practical tools & encouragement to help her get her life back, and reconnect with what she knows in her heart, as she continues her fertility journey.

Learn more about our approach and the program elementswhich are selected and combined for a strategy specific to each patient.

"Elizabeth Carpenter is at the forefront of blending the concepts of Eastern and Western Medicine.
I came to Elizabeth for a concerning medical condition; my work with her has given me so much more than that.  With her treatment and guidance I have optimized my health and well-being. The surprise has been a positive mind-set and renewed sense of energy. I feel as if I have undergone a transformation of mind, body and spirit. The Oriens experience has deeply touched my soul and changed my entire outlook on life, such that I feel I am a completely different person.
Elizabeth is a kind compassionate practitioner who has been an ongoing source of inspiration for me."
