Fiona Lampman R.TCM.P
Registered Acupuncturist, Herbalist, Reiki Practitioner, and Trained Doula in Kamloops, BC
In my experience, life leads you along certain paths for a reason. I truly believe that the way I fell into my passion for acupuncture and energy healing is proof of this. I grew up in Northern Ontario roaming through forests and swimming in cool waters with no knowledge of acupuncture. After attending Thompson Rivers University, it took moving abroad to South Korea to open my eyes to this new way of seeing life in its continual flux of yin and yang and the struggle to maintain balance no matter what the universe might throw your way.
After studying acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine for four years at the ICTCMV in Vancouver and achieving my goal of Registered Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner, my journey continues. Every day I am learning further my studies particularly in the field of acupuncture for prenatal and postnatal care.
Almost directly out of school I opened Gathered Roots Community Acupuncture in downtown New Westminster and for eight amazing years Gathered Roots was my passion. Gathered Roots continues to thrive while I am planting new roots here in Kamloops.
Now the next step in my journey has started, with the new dream of opening the first community style acupuncture in Kamloops. Please join me on this journey and stay tuned for updates as new paths unfold.
To sum it up, I am a passionate Acupuncturist and TCM Herbalist, aspiring energy healer, waning earth archetype, wannabe photographer, community activist, new mother, and lover of all things vintage.
