Agni Larsen

Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Dr. TCM

I am a Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine (Dr. TCM), in good standing with the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists of British Columbia (CTCMA). I have been practicing as a Registered Acupuncturist & Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner (R.Ac., R.TCM.P.) since 2018 on the traditional territories of the Lekwungen peoples here in Victoria, BC. I completed my 5-year Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine Diploma with great distinction at Pacific Rim College in 2017. I hold a previous degree from Kathmandu University, Nepal, where I graduated in 2011 with a B.A. in Buddhist Studies and Himalayan Language.

I am a member of the British Columbia Association of Traditional Chinese Medicine & Acupuncture Practitioners (ATCMA), an instructor at the local Chinese Medicine school, Pacific Rim College, and co-owner of Twin Cedars Holistic Health, my home-based Chinese Medicine Practice in Maplewood, Saanich.

I acknowledge and thank the Lkwungen People, also known as the Songhees and Esquimalt First Nations communities, for allowing me to live, work and play on their lands. I believe that acupuncture and Chinese Medicine add value to society by addressing growing healthcare needs and offering an effective and natural approach to health. In addition to acupuncture, cupping therapy, moxibustion, gua sha, Tui Na massage, acupressure and prescribing Chinese herbal medicine, I teach individuals to become ambassadors of their own health through dietary and lifestyle changes. My goal is to provide an inclusive space where health care needs will be listened to and to create a collaborative, personalized treatment plan to help individuals achieve their health goals through holistic, empowered design.

I have a special interest in outreach acupuncture, mental and emotional health, addictions, autoimmune conditions, eating disorders, pain modulation, dermatology, digestive health, optimal nutrition and Chinese herbs. I love working with people to balance hormones, regulate menstruation, improve fertility, and support all three trimesters of pregnancy. I have additional training in AcuSculpt and Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture, including facial rejuvenation and cellulite reduction. To learn more about me and my style of practice visit my website:

I am a long-term student of Tibetan Buddhism and a Yoga Teacher with over 16 years of experience teaching across Asia, Europe, and the Americas. Outside of the clinic, you can find me painting, meditating, brewing potions, practicing qi gong and tai ji quan, and curling up with a mug of tea and a sci-fi novel.
