Team Care

Dr. Lumiere is a core faculty member in the Department of Acupuncture and East Asian Medicine at Bastyr University, and the director of the post-graduate doctoral program (DAOM). 


Dr. Lumiere believes healing is an educative process that involves understanding how disharmonies of the body/mind occur and learning more rewarding ways to live. She holds that, as an ever-evolving result of hundreds of years of therapeutic adaptation, traditional Chinese medicine offers a congruent philosophy and practical means to achieve greater health.

Dr. Lumiere teaches in both the masters and doctoral programs, provides clinical training and patient care at the Bastyr Center for Natural Health, and is active in acupuncture research. An area of particular interest is the conjunction of traditional Chinese medicine and biomedicine, and how allied medical systems result in better health outcomes.
