hey, I'm Lacey

I'm a Dr. of Chinese Medicine &
Conscious Leadership Mentor who believes you've gotta build your dreams
from the inside out.

Helping you resolve your pain and chronic issues, as well as  bring ease and joy into your life, is my passion.

As a Dr. of Chinese Medicine, I am a chronic dis-ease specialist. As an Anthropologist and Silversmith, I make the Regenerator teishin: an heirloom Acupuncture tools based on ancient principles, redesigned for modern use. As a CranioSacral Practitioner and empathic intuitive I have developed a complete program to address chronic stagnation and emotional blocks as humans in this life. And as a Soil Scientist I have done the research and the experimenting and recognize East Asian Medicine as the healthcare system necessary for us all.

efficacy and efficiency for enhanced healing

Dr. Lacey Dupre is a Doctor of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, a licensed and board-certified acupuncturist, and clinical herbalist. Lacey founded Jade Seed Wellness in 2017 and currently acts as Clinic Director.
As a practitioner, she is known for her intuitive approach to Chinese medicine and particularly for her skills as a Needle-Free Acupuncturist and energy healer.

My passion for whole-being, well-being for all started in ethnobotanical studies and has culminated into planetary healing.

Lacey has always been passionate about helping others navigate their feelings of 'stuck-ness' and pain. She credits much of her success to the incredible teachers she has studied under from all over the world, as well as her own inner mindfulness practices. When she learned about the teishin while still in school, she knew she'd found her tool. She did not fully put down the modern, filiform, insertion needles until many years later and now treats with her most revered and studiously curated methods: Needle-Free Acupuncture with the teishin, herbal formulas, moxibustion, gua sha, infrared and laser light therapies, Stone Medicine and CranioSacral therapy.

Every session is personalized and based on the pulse assessment, evaluation of client’s needs, constitution, and comfort.
