Our Acupuncturists

Sabrina Lundquist, B.SC., RAc

 

Sabrina is a Registered Acupuncturist with a passion for providing her clients with deeply relaxing treatments. While acupuncture and relaxation might seem like an odd pairing, what could be more relaxing than having that nervous stomach or muscle knot unwind? Suffering nauseating migraines frequently as a child, Sabrina is particularly excited about how well and how fast acupuncture treats most headaches.

Sabrina Graduated from the West Coast College of Massage Therapy’s Spa Practitioner Program and provided massages at the Delta Victoria Ocean Pointe for over 10 years. A Regisiterd Acupuncturist since 2015, Sabrina incorporates Massage (Tui Na) in her hands on assessments and treatments.

Always curious about how things work and why, Sabrina earned a Diploma of Acupuncture from Pacific Rim College and a BSc. in Biology from the University of Victoria. She interviews each client, looking at current challenges, from a Traditional Chinese Medicine point of view and a biomedical perspective.

Sabrina loves dance and movement therapies from Foxtrot and Pilates to Poi Spinning and Tai Chi lessons. When not dancing Sabrina is often reading, playing board games or trying out new massages. Clients are offered useful advice for reducing pain and stress but not pressured to adopt habits that don’t fit their lives. She offers 20 minute free consultations in person or by phone to anyone feeling curious or nervous.
