Vicky Lee is a board-certified acupuncturist who received her Masters degree from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine. The daughter of a doctor, she has a healthy respect for western and eastern medicine and feels that the integration of the two is the key to health. She likes to say “if you’re having a heart attack, by all means go to the hospital, but if you want to avoid having one in the first place, call me.” Prior to her acupuncture career, Vicky attained a B.A. in Folklore at the University of Pennsylvania. She worked at The Philadelphia Inquirer for seven years before reinventing herself as a graphic designer. Desiring nature, she spent five years in Colorado as Communications Director for a cultural and educational non-profit called The Vail Symposium. She then felt the calling to work more closely with people in a healing capacity.
In her practice, treatment plans are tailored to each individual and employ the best of all the systems she has studied. Vicky incorporates Dr. Tan Balance Method, Japanese acupuncture, Traditional Chinese Medicine, ear and scalp acupuncture, and Eastern and Functional Nutrition. Her tools are needles, moxibustion, herbs, e-stim, gua sha and cupping. Additionally, when it applies, she offers instruction in qi gong exercises or meditation, or administers Reiki. An unapologetic foodie, Vicky loves to guide people to health through nutrition by explaining what foods benefit or hurt the individual’s constitution, and sharing delicious recipes.
Vicky has treated senior and low-income patients in free clinics downtown and City Heights. She spent time in Peru treating villagers in the jungle while studying native shamanic medicine. She believes that the health of the community depends on the health of the individual, and the health of the individual depends on the health of the community.
Vicky has studied meditation and spiritual philosophies for almost 20 years and acknowledges all the teachers she has met in ashrams, monasteries, sweat lodges, mountains and jungles. Her struggles and search for self-realization have taught her to treat everyone with respect and compassion wherever they may be in life. It is her honor to be present on other people’s journeys to self-awareness and well-being.
