Lacy Brandt, R.Ac.
Lacy Brandt is a Registered Acupuncturist and Graduate of the Diploma of Acupuncture program at Pacific Rim College in Victoria. She also has an Undergraduate Degree in Community Rehabilitation and Disability Studies from the University of Calgary and has worked for 8 years as a Rehabilitation Assistant providing physiotherapy and occupational therapy in hospitals. Her experience working hands-on with individuals recovering from traumatic injuries, as well as advanced medical and neurological conditions transfers to the acupuncture table. Her interests are in digestive & emotional health, chronic pain, and neurological recovery. She is offering traditional, scalp, and orthopedic needling techniques along with cupping, guasha, and the Chinese massage known as Tui Na.
Lacy became passionate about acupuncture and Chinese medicine after her own experience of using them to treat her Crohn's disease, which she has been now thriving with for the past 5 years. As she learned about Chinese medicine's theory of emotional states and their ability to affect physical states of being, she realized acupuncture was finally the tool she needed to approach the body as a whole in order to help herself and others. In her free time, Lacy strives for balance in life by spending as much time outside camping, rock climbing, hiking, or just laughing with friends by the ocean. She is grateful to live on the west coast and excited to have the opportunity to serve such a wonderful community.
