Lucy has had a fun and fulfilling practice in Victoria for over 10 years. Her aim is to compassionately promote wellness and inspire a balanced lifestyle, free of pain.
Her journey began with an intrigue in the body’s innate ability to heal itself and a curiosity about the interconnectedness of things in the natural world. Initially studying nutrition and Western herbalism, Lucy found Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), which appealed to her heritage. The Academy of Classical Oriental Sciences offers an excellent 4-year full-time diploma program which Lucy began in 1999. It was a rigorous program focused on TCM fundamentals as well as Chinese language, history, Qigong, and Tai Chi.
After graduating with honours and successfully challenging board exams, she emerged full of enthusiasm, ready to share TCM with her patients. Since that time and over the last ten years, she has had the pleasure to work with countless patients on the Saanich peninsula, with whom she has witnessed profound positive changes in health.
Fully aware that this fascinating branch of knowledge is never complete, she continues to expand her knowledge through continuing education with a number of renowned masters of acupuncture. Some areas of interest include: women’s health, pediatrics, Dr. Tan's Balance Method, and the treatment of emotional stress. Lucy is particularly passionate about Qigong, which is an ancient movement practice that enhances the mind-body connection, builds energy levels, and calms the mind.
Lucy is registered with the College of TCM Practitioners and Acupuncturists of British Columbia (CTCMA). She’s also a member of the Association of TCM and Acupuncture of BC (ATCMA). When not in the clinic, she enjoys cooking, yoga, Argentine tango, flower arranging, and being out in the magnificent outdoors.
