Our Team

Beauty and Spa center

Think of us as your acupuncture friends who roll up on a wheely chair to brighten your day with 20+ perfectly (and gently) placed needles. We have so much love for each and every person who walks through our doors, but we figured you may want to get to know us a little before you book with us.

Vincent is a registered acupuncturist and herbalist in British Columbia, Hong Kong and Mainland China, with a PhD in Chinese Medicine from the University of Hong Kong. He has recently crossed the Pacific to join us here at The Village, bringing his enthusiastic belief that kindness and a peaceful mind generate powerful healing energy.

Vincent is a yoga and meditation lover, and he is fully vaccinated.

And for a little fun, here is the #1 reason we each love working here at The Village.

I always joke that The Village is my second baby. But it’s not really a joke. This space represents so much of who I am as a woman, mother, entrepreneur, and acupuncturist. While I can’t welcome thousands of people into my home, I can do it here for my community.

Sara Ward

Our community. The folks I treat week to week, month to month and year to year. The businesses of Hastings Sunrise. The network of other practitioners I can refer to if more support is needed. I love living and working in this community.

Lisa Matsuzaki

YOU! I love meeting you and hearing your stories, supporting your struggles and celebrating your wins with you. I am thankful every time you walk through the door and trust me to walk alongside you.
