Heal Yourself, Heal the World
"Health is the greatest gift, contentment the greatest wealth, faithfulness the best relationship."
Hello, so nice to meet you!
Hello, my name is Lindsay Morris Fish and I am honored to share this healing journey with you. My bloodlines come from Cree, Celtic, Russian and English descent. I live and practice Traditional Chinese Medicine in Nelson, BC and I have permission and sanction to live and work in this beautiful territory by our hosting Indigenous nation, the Sinixt. I am a welcomed guest in this territory. I dedicate my medicine practice to be of service to All Life, to the Seven Generations who have come before me and the Seven Generations who come after me.
I am a registered acupuncturist and herbalist (R.TCMP) and I have my diploma as a Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine from the Academy of Classical Oriental Sciences. Prior to my medical studies, I was an elementary school teacher (B.Ed) and I graduated with distinction from the University of Alberta. I am now enjoying the best of both worlds through teaching about Chinese medicine, as well as practicing it. I am a firm believer that no one knows your body better than you do, therefore I encourage all of my patients to actively participate in their own healing process. I do my best to communicate and share with my clients, pertinent Chinese medicine wisdom and knowledge. I often speak about the function of the acupoints as we move through treatment and I do my best to remind the body of what it already knows on a cellular level. We work to remind the body of how to heal and the body works to remind us of what it needs in order to do so. The body is primed for healing, sometimes we just have to shift our perspectives and listen and communicate with it in new ways in order to make this shift towards health.
I understand that every person is unique, therefore, I use a wide variety of therapies in my medicine practice, which include acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, cupping, moxibustion & heat therapy, Scenar therapy, Gua Sha, Tuina Chinese massage, herbal womb steaming, facial rejuvenation & cosmetic acupuncture, food/dietary consulting and lifestyle counselling. Together we will work to facilitate healing and increase vitality of mind, body, spirit and emotions. Let’s help in the creation and maintenance of a life and world full of health, happiness and endless inspiration.

“Never have I felt so validated and supported by a health practitioner. Lindsay's approach to care is exceptionally generous and heart-based. Her depth of knowledge combined with the safe sanctuary she offers invites opportunities for deep healing and relaxation. Suffering for many years from hormonal imbalances that had been debilitating each month, I experienced immediate reduction and relief after my first visit with Lindsay. She is an embodied and empowered practitioner who, time and time again, goes above and beyond for her clients.”
