Life is hectic, slowing down is key for balance. Since 1999 my acupuncture practice has evolved with the implementing of herbs, essential oils, sound therapy, stone medicine, food harmonizers and Five Element wisdom to offer each being an opportunity to reset, listen within and find Your unique way to BE in the world. Tap into your innate healing energy and let the river of life flow… so you may thrive.

Root Alchemy Acupuncture

Private Practice in Santa Fe

My healing space is situated in a magical oasis, next to the Santa Fe river at 1519 Upper Canyon Road.  

Please see the directions link above for more details.

My private acupuncture sessions are longer than most as I feel it is crucial to have time for informative and compassionate communication, to allow for a check-in, feed back, and education, regarding how your imbalances may have manifested.

I believe I serve you best when you have my undivided attention, thus I do not treat multiple patients at the same time.

“We work as a team”.

Root Alchemy Acupuncture sessions may include the various tools below:

  • Daoist 5 Element Acupuncture – I have a very subtle and gentle technique, perfect for those “terrified of needles”.
  • Herbal Medicine and/or supplement suggestions to support the client’s well-being. (Herb formulas cost extra)
  • Lifestyle suggestions: “Food is Medicine”  – specific foods to balance one’s being.
  • Therapeutic Essential Oils in a custom blend which are applied to acupuncture points. This blend serves as a needle-free treatment you can take home with you.
  • Sound Therapy: Tuning forks activated to vibrate on acupuncture points, the sound literally soothes our nervous system to release stress, tension and help calm.
  • Micro-current for Pain Management – similar to a TENS unit, current applied to needles lessens inflammation, etc…
  • “Cupping” – suction cups that are applied to areas of tension.  Feels great and releases the muscle fascia.

What to expect from the Initial Acupuncture Session:

Includes a review of the First Time Patient Forms you fill in and bring to our session (see above link) which include a comprehensive medical health history intake,  5 Element Questionnaire and an informed consent with cancellation policy.
