Annie McDonnell, L.Ac. / Joy Alchemy Acupuncture
Search By City: City Wellness Collective 122W 26ST NY
Hello, I’m Annie McDonnell and I am a licensed acupuncturist with a focus on relieving stress-related ailments.
A longtime children’s book editor, I’m interested in helping you understand the unique story of your health condition, treating the root causes and empowering you to transform your narrative from pain to healing.
A graduate of Swarthmore College, I earned my master’s degree in acupuncture from the New York College of Traditional Chinese Medicine. I’m certified in Acutonics, a needle-free treatment that uses the vibrational energy of tuning forks on acupuncture points, and continue to be an enthusiastic lifelong student of sound healing, aromatherapy, and other holistic modalities. I’ve studied facial acupuncture with Mary Elizabeth Wakefield, gua sha facial rejuvenation with Dr. Ping Zhang, breathwork with Erin Telford, and Western herbalism with Peeka Trenkle and Robin Rose Bennett among other wonderful teachers.
My practice is Joy Alchemy Acupuncture because I’ve experienced how reconnecting with deep inner joy heals grief, fear, and pain, and my mission is to guide you to remember how joyful it’s possible to feel. When acupuncture, sound healing, breathwork, and other complementary techniques deeply relax your nervous system and boost energy and blood circulation, the body’s innate healing intelligence awakens.
A session with me will be tailored to your individual needs, from a comprehensive intake interview where we’ll take the time to fully discuss your health history to a custom treatment plan including acupuncture, cupping, gua sha, sound healing, and other modalities as needed, concluding with advice on self-care strategies you can continue at home.
It would be my honor to help you navigate your journey to true wellness.
