Lori Race began her post secondary career in the area of health and fitness, graduating with honors from the University of Victoria’s Kinesiology program in 1996. After working as a personal trainer and an exercise rehabilitation specialist for several years, she found herself longing for more in her career. After meeting a wonderful mentor who was an Acupuncture & Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner, Lori decided to take a leap into alternative medicine. A natural and intuitive healer, Lori has been successfully practicing Acupuncture in Victoria B.C, for over sixteen years. Her background in human movement and as a collegiate and university level athlete allow her an intimate understanding of the human body and her gifts as an empathetic and gentle listener and teacher make her a sought after practitioner in the city.
Lori has trained extensively with top Sports Acupuncturist, Matt Callison in the area of pain and muscle & joint dysfunction. She has also spent many hours studying women's health with a specific focus on gynecology, fertility and obstetrics working with such esteemed leaders in the fields as Randine Lewis, Debra Betts and Jane Lyttleton.
In 2009, Lori embarked on Life Coach training and in 2011, she received her Master Life Coach Certification from Harvard graduate and bestselling author, Martha Beck. The combination of Life Coaching and Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine has been a very positive one for Lori, allowing her to fulfill her calling to help ignite healing and inspiration in people’s lives.
