Lucy Marsh, LAc
Lucy’s journey into the healing arts started in 2002, as she was backpacking through New Zealand, when curiosity led her to her first Reiki training. Lucy had been teaching ecology as a field naturalist in New England and was trying to figure out where to go next. She ended up at the Boston School of Shiatsu where she started her path into Chinese Medicine. Lucy didn’t quite know what she was stumbling into, and she felt blessed to have fallen head over heels in love with the way Chinese Medicine understands health and well-being. Now, she has over a decade of experience as a shiatsu and reiki practitioner, with over 1,500 treatments given. Lucy continued her training with a Masters in Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Studies from the Academy for Five Element Acupuncture in Gainesville, FL. Five years later, with over 3,000 hours of study and 700 hours of clinical supervision, she returned home to Iowa City where she has been offering acupuncture, Chinese herbs, and Asian bodywork therapies since 2015.
