SPENCER HAS A GENERAL, INCLUSIVE PRACTICE.
His particular interests lie in stress and all its manifestations: whether that be physical pain, anxiety and depression, digestive problems, menstrual issues or anything else. Aware of the benefits of rest and convalescence in today’s fast-paced world, he applies a calm, patient-centred approach to his treatments. Spencer is registered with the CTCMA, the regulatory body for practitioners of TCM in British Columbia.
After graduating high school, Spencer went to UBC. During his time at UBC, he played four years on the Thunderbirds varsity football team, graduating in 2013 with a Bachelor’s of Kinesiology. In his fourth and final year, he suffered multiple injuries, ultimately ending his time as a football player and leading to an extensive rehabilitation process. It was during this time that he was introduced to Traditional Chinese Medicine and, in particular, to acupuncture.
After graduation, unsure of a career path and curious about the world at large, Spencer moved to Japan where he taught English for 2 years. After leaving Japan, he moved back to Vancouver. For the next few years, while carefully deliberating on his future, Spencer worked and travelled, spending time in Europe, Asia, the Middle East, South America and East Africa. With his interest in health and the human body, Spencer was still passionate about the health care industry and in helping others. Returning home and still grateful for his experience with Chinese Medicine, he decided that he was ready to pursue a career as an acupuncturist. He applied to Pacific Rim College in Victoria, where he graduated with honours in 2019.
