Audrey Lesquelin, Ac.

Particular interests: Fertility, pregnancy, gynecology, psychological and internal disorders.

Audrey is a committed acupuncturist. Her strong sense of service first led her to complete a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology at the Université de Montréal.

Later on, her knowledge of Chinese martial arts (Taichi, Qigong, Kungfu) drove her towards the oriental philosophies. That was when she decided to follow her passion for Chinese medicine and become a certified acupuncturist from Collège de Rosemont in  2011.

A perfectionist, Audrey travelled to China to study how prominent Chinese doctors practise acupuncture in local hospitals.

Backed by her training in acupuncture for pregnant women at Lasalle Hospital, she offers quality complementary pregnancy and childbirth follow-up.

She also teaches obstetrical acupuncture at postgraduate level.
