Learn and stay connected with the Alumni

On August 27, 2019, DULA invited one of its distinguished alumni, Carly Locke, L.Ac. to share some of her ideas, experiences and tips of how to build a successful acupuncture practice. In this event, many of students, especially senior students whom will soon be graduating participate and share most of their thoughts, ideas and questions. Being graduate from the program, not only that the students will need to prepare and pass the licensing exam, but also how to be stay connected, finding their path and passion, and eventually become a specialized in certain field in practicing Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. 

Carly received her Masters of Science in Oriental Medicine (MSOM) from Dongguk University Los Angeles in 2017. She is a Nationally Certified Diplomate of Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) and holds state licenses to practice Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine in both Alaska and California. Upon graduates from MSOM program, Carly has built her acupuncture practice "Alchemy Wellness" at Seward, AK. 

The human body is inherently designed to be self-organizing, self-regulating, and self-correcting. This means that the body and the subtle energy systems can potentially re-organize continuously toward better or optimal functioning. Sometimes, however,  intervention or assistance in this process is helpful or necessary. Carly's practice is inspired by this potential of the body towards optimal alignment and ideal function. She aims to use Acupuncture, traditional Chinese herbs, scent, sound, and subtle energetic techniques to create the space for the body to drop in and begin the journey back to wholeness.
