C. Hiram Carson (December 2, 1843 - July 3, 1912), or Hiram C. Carson, sometimes Charles Hiram Carson, was an American physician and Spiritualist who operated the "Temple of Health" at Kansas City, Missouri from 1888 until his death, his practice offering magnetic healing in the form of the laying on of hands (rubbed with capsicum vaselin) as well as "magnetised paper" treatments.

In addition to his own writings, Carson published two Spiritualist books that he asserted had been received from deceased wife Rose M. Carson, also known as "Rose the Sunlight," each describing her journey through the after-world. The first, in 1908, was entitled Through the Valley of the Shadow and Beyond; the second, in 1911, was Two Years in Heaven.
