Each of us creates our own health. Yet, as we move through our daily lives, the body is continually challenged by physical and emotional stressors that pull us out of balance and compromise our natural healing abilities. Living up to our remarkable potential can be difficult when external events and toxins overload the body and mind, causing dis-ease and illness that conventional Western medicine often cannot adequately explain or treat. Yet, given the right environment and support – clean rich nutrition, regular toxin elimination, adequate rest and rejuvenation, energy cultivation and emotional balance – the body knows how to best heal, repair and recover itself. While these simple truths resonate with many of us, we often find it difficult to incorporate them into our busy lives.
The Alchemy Project was established to be a catalyst for cultivating and transforming health and is grounded in the premise that each of us possesses the innate ability to heal ourselves with the right support. We advocate a natural, holistic approach to health that is grounded in Chinese Medicine and embraces the wonderful complexity and diversity of each person – physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually – and strives to bring balance back to the ‘whole’ person. From this perspective, your health is viewed within the broader context of your life, rather than isolated or apart from who you are.
At The Alchemy Project, we practice holistically- treating the entire person not just the disease - and supporting and nurturing the body’s own ability to heal. We begin by conducting a thorough history of your current lifestyle and behaviors, attitudes and emotions, social relationships and environment, physical symptoms and stressors. We discuss your patterns of eating, working, resting, sleeping and exercising. Each treatment is individualized – we seek to create sustainable lifestyle and behavioral changes that not only treat your immediate symptoms, but develop a plan going forward that will change the way you live and feel. We focus on the integration of mind, body and spirit, asking: What aspects are out of balance? How did these imbalances occur? How can acupuncture, herbal medicine and behavioral / lifestyle changes help restore balance and harmony? Such a holistic point of view allows for the diagnosis and treatment of subtle imbalances that often go unrecognized in western medicine until they reach the level of gross pathology. Importantly, we believe that healing is a partnership and involves awakening the body’s innate wisdom for self-healing on all levels by integrating the body mind and spirit.
We believe the body is a complete energetic system with the innate knowledge to heal itself. It is our intention at The Alchemy Project to help activate this power to enhance the healing process and transform your health. By utilizing various modalities of Chinese Medicine – including acupuncture, herbal medicine, eastern nutrition and aromatherapy – we help bring the body back into a state of balance.
The Alchemy Project is here to help you achieve optimal health so that your life can be what it is meant to be: strong, vital and amazing. Sharing the ancient wisdom of Chinese Medicine and empowering self-healing for both my patients and my readers is how I choose to make my very tiny contribution to the planet and society, one person at a time.
There is nothing greater than the healing intelligence embodied in every cell of your body. Our mission is to help you fully express it on every level of your being, to overcome disease and illness, and to manifest the full expression of your true self.
Healing is never an isolated event – it doesn’t occur in one dimension of our being or affect only one part of our lives. As old energetic patterns dissolve and stagnant energy is cleared, space is created for new, healthy patterns of thought, being and action to emerge.
