R.Ac., Dip. DTCM, B.Comm.
Patricia graduated from the Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine diploma program at Vancouver’s International College of TCM in 2009. Since then she has demonstrated her passion for learning by getting trained in Master Tung style Acupuncture, Craniosacral Therapy and attending workshops and conferences on a range of health and wellness topics to enrich her practice.
Patricia moved to Vancouver, BC from Singapore in 1993 and went on to study at U Vic. After graduating with a business degree and spending five years working in banking, she realized she needed a career that would allow her to help people improve their lives. That realization led her to pursue a career as a yoga teacher and head back to school to study Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
When she’s not working with her clients at Petersen Wellness, Patricia can be found curled up with a good book, taking long walks, hiking and enjoying a cup of Matcha latte.

Jill is originally from Ontario, but ventured out West in 2003 for her Bachelor of Science degree from the University of British Columbia. Enamoured with the ocean and mountains, she stayed! Prior to Massage Therapy, Jill worked as a Park Ranger and Bylaw Officer in Vancouver and West Vancouver. Jill’s interest in Massage Therapy was inspired by her positive experiences seeking treatment for work related repetitive strain injuries and tension headaches. Now she is excited to have the opportunity to assist others on their own path to healing and wellness!
Jill graduated from the Massage Therapy program at the Vancouver College of Massage Therapy (VCMT) in April of 2017, and is Registered with the College of Massage Therapists of British Columbia.
