What is Holistic Medicine?

Holistic medicine is the spirit or approach to delivering healthcare rather than specific techniques. It addresses the psychological, family unit, society’s health, spiritual connection, and biological interplay of health and illness. This approach emphasizes the uniqueness of each person, the relationship between patient and doctor, and the responsibility for shepherding one’s healthcare. At Iris Wellness Center, we aim to deliver ethical and necessary medical care in the true spirit of Holistic Medicine.

How do I get started?

First, I want to know your desired outcomes and what may be preventing you from reaching them. Fill out the form at the top of this page to get started.


Meet Dr. Carleigh Tenzin, DA

For 19 years, she has studied Eastern philosophies and holistic medicine, and for 12 years, has applied this knowledge in practice.

Part of the results at Iris Wellness Center come from working on all aspects of our human existence- physical health, mental health, relationships, career, spiritual/religious purpose, and connection.

I fill the gaps where Western medicine falls short. I hope you will become inspired, heal, and be a light to yourself and others. You have entrusted me; therefore, I take your care seriously. At the same time, I enjoy spending time in the treatment rooms, getting to know people, having fun, and being present during life’s hardships.

Iris Wellness Center is my life’s work. I want to ensure you are delighted with my care.

Pregnancy Acupuncture

I can't say enough about Carleigh and her work. I arrived at her office frustrated, in pain, and dealing with major intestinal issues. Her acupuncture treatments are always spot on and provide me with such relief. Her herbal medicines cleared up my stomach and reduced my inflammation. She also helps satisfy my nerd mind and sends me great scientific information on her treatments and herbal remedies. I have been through acupuncture before and have never found someone who is so thorough and honestly cares about your health improving. I am so glad I reached out to her. She is seriously intuitive, extraordinarily empathic, and compassionate.

Let's work on all aspects of the human experience


"I want to improve my health."

Acupuncture & herbal medicine work by increasing circulation, decreasing inflammation and promoting relaxation.

When the blood moves freely, so do hormones, white blood cells, oxygen, and nutrients. Enhanced circulation and filtration decrease inflammation- the root of most diseases. Instead of fighting disease, the body relaxes- the state where it heals itself.

When we work together, we will improve your circulation, decrease inflammation and get you relaxed. 


"I want to feel at peace."

When daily routines align with self-care and not self-sabotage, your mind can rest knowing it is home safe. 

People come to me saying, “Something is wrong with me, and I feel so out-of-whack.” When the truth is, there is nothing wrong with you. Nature is doing what it intends- communicating what is in and out of balance. The last thing we want is to shut these signals off with medication or self-medication. I know it is uncomfortable, but if we stop beating ourselves up for feeling ‘bad’ and instead listen, we can shift emotional turmoil into our most potent translator.

When we work together, you will begin to trust what your body is telling you.

"I want to enjoy my life."

Your body IS a temple.

As you nourish yourself, your resources will shift from focusing on pain, inflammation, and emotional turmoil, to strengthing and honing in on vibrancy and purpose. Are you enjoying your life and your choices? If not, your spirit is also suffering, not just your body.

That is part of the magic of working with me; we get to clear you up and hone in on what matters most to you.

What our clients ask us

Frequently Asked Questions

Does Acupuncture hurt?

  • We use fine hair-like needles. Generally, you won’t even feel the needle going in. We look for a tiny spark or sensation once we reach the acupuncture point, and it feels slightly electric and invigorating, followed by feelings of deep relaxation.

What are Wellness Tracks?

  • Time and consistency are what make proper changes in health, so we guide people to their desired outcomes by coming up with a comprehensive and inclusive treatment approach. Acupuncture is one fabulous branch of eastern medicine. Still, often we need to utilize all the branches, including -lifestyle, nutrition, emotional balance, life purpose, and so on, to provide real powerful change. Again, it’s so individual; sometimes, people only need help with knee pain. But often, health situations can be more complex, and we’d be lying if we thought a round of acupuncture would fix it.

How long are Wellness Tracks?

  • Depending on the severity and the length of time you’ve had your condition, Wellness Tracks range from 2-6 months. In the beginning, I will see you more frequently, and as your condition improves, we will space out treatments accordingly.
  • We move people from Symptomatic Care (when people are experiencing symptoms) to Corrective Care (fixing underlying causes of disease) to Maintenance Care (minimum number of treatments needed to stay well).

How much does it cost?

  • All Wellness Tracks are custom, depending on your personal needs.
  • Service prices range from $75-$225.
  • Our Wellness Tracks range from $915-$3500. It depends on how many service types you want and need. People can pay upfront for a discount, or we can provide a zero-interest payment plan for 3-12 months.

Do you offer payment plans?

  • Yes! If we are a good fit for each other and I feel we can get you the outcomes you desire, we will come up with a mutually agreed upon treatment plan that can be paid upfront for a discount or in monthly installments.

Do you take insurance?

  • To create success for patients, we offer comprehensive treatment plans involving more than Acupuncture, which in-network insurance doesn’t generally cover.
  • If you have HSA or FSA, all of our services are covered through those plans.
  • For acupuncture services, we provide detailed insurance codes and receipts for patients to turn in. Patients get the reimbursement check directly according to their policy.


  • When we put together a custom Wellness Track for you, we want to see improvements within the first month of treatment, or we will refer out to proper care and refund the remaining unused sessions.

What is the best way to get started?

I highly recommend starting with a 60-min AcuGraph scan and diagnosis. We can meet, talk about what you are looking for help with, and see with the AcuGraph scan what might be going on and how to best treat it. If we are a good fit for each other and I feel we can get you the outcomes you desire, we will come up with a mutually agreed upon a treatment plan that can be paid upfront or in monthly installments. This consult costs $99.00.
