Welcome to by Stacy
Providing curated holistic treatments & tools so you can glow from within
As a board-certified Doctor of Acupuncture, my purpose & passion is to help you discover youthfulness, vitality, energy & beauty; naturally.
My approach is to treat the mind, body, spirit & skin using modern diagnostic techniques & ancient healing practices.
Book a gua sha facial
Get Lifted | gua sha facial
This treatment uses lymphatic facial methods to eliminate waste & toxins from your tissues, manually manipulate accelerated drainage, smooth out fascia, create a natural lift, and sculpt the face.
Book cosmetic acupuncture
Acu Glow | cosmetic acupuncture
Cosmetic acupuncture is an all natural, non-toxic, minimally invasive procedure to make the skin glow from the inside out.
Side effects may include: glowing skin, reduced fine lines & wrinkles, reduced acne & improved texture
Acupuncture is a powerful solution for mental & physical well-being. We use thin needles to stimulate the body's healing response to shift from sympathetic (fight or flight) into parasympathetic (rest & digest)- the only place your body can truly begin to heal.

Does acupuncture hurt?
It is often the case that patients don't even feel the needles! Acu needles are extremely thin & entirely different than the ones given for injections or drawing blood. While everybody has different levels of sensitivity, acupuncture is virtually painless.
As someone who used to be afraid of needles, I take a very gentle approach and ensure you are fully comfortable each step of the way.
What does acupuncture feel like?
Once the needles have been inserted, you may feel a warm, tingling, heavy, or achy sensation. This is referred to as 'De Qi', and is a positive sign that the body & needles are interacting. The sensation is mild & patients often fall into a deep sense of relaxation (also referred to as an acu-nap).
How does cosmetic acupuncture work?
Cosmetic acupuncture works by creating micro traumas in the skin barrier to stimulate the body's natural healing response. These 3 things happen:
1. Collagen & elastin- Will be sent to the sight of the microtrauma to heal. Collagen is what makes the skin maintain it's youthfulness & elasticity.
2. White blood cells-Known to kill bacteria such as acne.
3. Red blood cells- Deliver oxygen, nutrients & improve circulation. This helps move stagnation & blockages giving your skin that youthful & buoyant glow
As we age, our facial muscles begin to atrophy & our collagen levels deplete causing sagging skin, fine lines & wrinkles. While this is an inevitable part of aging, cosmetic acupuncture supports theses changes by preserving collagen levels, increasing blood flow & and enhancing immune cells to strengthen the skin barrier.
Skin concerns (acne, pre-mature aging, dry skin, etc) happen due to internal imbalances that are also addressed during cosmetic acupuncture by inserting needles on specific points of the entire body.
Do you offer direct billing?
Yes! I offer direct billing for both cosmetic & traditional acupuncture.
How long until I see/feel results?
"One treatment is a treat, 4+ is a treatment"
You will notice brighter, glowing skin & a sculpted look in 1-2 sessions & more significant acne & antiaging results in 4-8 sessions.
Acupuncture is like going to the gym; it has a cumulative effect. You will feel amazing after just one session, but the real healing results you're looking are created with appointment consistency & lifestyle recommendations. Each treatment plan will differ according to your current state of health & goals of care.
Together we will create a treatment plan & maintenance plan that best serves you.
I know someone who said acupuncture doesn't work, will it work for me?
Typically, those who have tried acupuncture & claim it doesn't work have only tried it 1-2 times & spaced out over long periods of time. Imbalances don't develop overnight and neither does natural healing. I partner with my patients to take an active & empowering role in their healing journey.
Acupuncture is medicine. Just like your doctor prescribes medicine & how often you take it, acupuncture must also be dosed properly.
What is LED light therapy?
Initially discovered by NASA, red light therapy increases ATP production in the cells (energy) which increases fibroblast cell activity. This is responsible for collagen & elastin production.
Blue light has shorter wavelengths & works superficially in the skin which makes it excellent for killing surface level bacteria (acne) & reducing oil production that causes the breakouts.
LED light therapy combined with cosmetic acupuncture is a powerful & natural solution for glowing & healthy skin.
Such a beautiful staple to add to your collection!! It’s neutral so it’s so versatile, and it makes the perfect holiday gift! 🥰 can’t wait to purchase more colors!
These have been my holy grail for hair ties the last 3 years. They don’t cause breakage, hair kinks, or headaches! If they loosen up you can toss them in the dryer and they’re good as new. My nieces have started to “borrow” my scrunchies and somehow I never get them back 😂
You can tell Stacy spent so much time perfecting prototypes to create the most effective Gua Sha on the market! Every ridge and edge of this tool is moulded for your face to glide smoothly over and sculpt. No detail was overlooked! I’m constantly finding new ways to use this on my face! My new favourite self care tool to use nightly before bed!
Amazing love the colour and they are the best scrunches I’ve ever used
These are the only scrunchies I will use. Well made! Love Love this product.
I love these scrunchies!!! They are the only ones I will use on my hair. The silky material helps your hair, and the coil elastic is better for your hair than any other! Definitely recommend!!
One of my newest of Stacy's gorgeous scrunchies. Perfect colour for summer, and the coils hold the hair so well. They are very well made. I adore all of the colours I have collected, and you will too!. Thanks, Stacy!
My wife really likes these scrunchies.
Amazing! I wear it everyday

Ocean---just beautiful, goes well with all other colours, and is suitable for all the year. Stacy's scrunchies are the best! The spiral coil holds well, and the fabrics and colours are gorgeous. They are so well-made, and ship quickly. I have quite a few now. Stacy is just so nice--it's been a pleasure to buy her lovely scrunchies. Thanks so much!

I love these scrunchies. So cute. No headaches. Holds well, and are so easy to “shrink” the coil centre back to size after worn a few times!
