Alice Young Clark

Alicepic-smAlice describes her introduction to TCM, “Growing up in a Chinese household there were always ‘strange’ herbal remedies and pungent concoctions brewing. I have many fond memories of my mother convincing the family to drink chrysanthemum flowers mixed with gold coin grass, because we were giving off a ‘mousy’ smell. She would say, “Drink this, there is too much heat inside you!” As a fourth-generation herbalist, I have experienced and observed the effectiveness of Traditional Chinese Medicine … and I remain continually amazed by it.”

Alice graduated from University of Toronto with a Bachelor of Science in 1995; Toronto School of TCM from Acupuncture & TCM Practitioner programs in 2005; and Academy of Classical Oriental Sciences in Nelson, BC with a Doctor of TCM in 2006. She is licensed and in good standing with College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists of British Columbia since 2007. Concurrent to her studies, she is grateful for the privilege to be mentored by two experienced and highly regarded TCM doctors: Dr. Philip Lau and Dr. Ellen Zhang. Finishing school was only the beginning of a life-long of learning. Alice continues to expand her knowledge with regular seminars with the most respected leaders in the TCM field.

Alice provides caring, integrative, and individualized treatments that will restore balance and health in the body. This includes educating and empowering patients so they can take responsibility for maintaining their health and well-being.

Alice has been practicing in Kimberley since 2007 treating a wide variety of conditions including pain, digestive, neurological, women’s health, and pediatrics. Alice is looking forward to collaborating with Dr. Danielle McFadzen in her Cranbrook clinic.
