Meet Lara Tisseur, Registered Acupuncturist
Lara Tisseur is a licensed Acupuncturist, holding an Acupuncture Diploma from the International College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Vancouver. Before finding her place in Chinese Medicine, Lara earned a Bachelor’s degree of Arts with an Environmental Specialty Certificate at Simon Fraser University.
Her journey into Chinese Medicine grew out of her own personal experiences over 19 years ago, when she was pregnant with a breech baby. TCM helped to turn her breech baby which started a profound interest and journey into health and Chinese Medicine. Lara is passionate about working with patients to help them better understand their health and its role in providing a balanced, healthy and empowered quality of life.
Her passion is focused on reproductive health and fertility, including preconception health care, Pregnancy, Post Partum, PCOS, Endometriosis, Miscarriage, Irregularity in cycles, Unexplained Infertility, Male Factor Infertility, IVF (In-Vitro Fertilization) support and IUI (Intrauterine Insemination) support.
She enjoys working with patients who are concurrently undergoing fertility treatments to bring their dreams into reality. She spent many years supporting IVF patients with acupuncture via going on site to clinics in Vancouver on their special day of embryo transfer! She creates customized treatment plans working in partnership with her patients to achieve treatments specific to their health goals.
Other cases she enjoys are pain management, stress/mood management, facial
rejuvenation, natural anti-aging and preventative care. As a practitioner, Lara enjoys helping patients achieve wellness by discovering the patient’s unique needs, primary issues and areas of imbalance. She balances the body
using acupuncture and other Traditional Chinese Medicine therapies such as
Acupuncture, Cupping, Moxibustion, Electro stimulation acupuncture (EA),
Auricular-EAR Acupuncture and Facial Rejuvenation.
Lara aims to set newcomers to acupuncture at ease by explaining the process in a language that you can understand. A huge believer in work-life balance, she derives tremendous satisfaction from helping patients achieve their own health goals that will ultimately improve their overall quality of life.
Outside of the treatment room, Lara enjoys regular oxygen yoga workouts, hiking, sailing and exploring the west coast with her partner and connecting with her son, friends and the outdoors.
