Alchemy seeks to transform the way Chinese Medicine is experienced through the creation of a vibrant and welcoming sanctuary. As a tearoom, apothecary, and acupuncture practice Asheville, NC, we are committed to nourishing the individual and the community while supporting environmental well-being.
Our vision is to serve & support the community by providing quality care to all who walk through our doors. We practice Classical Chinese Medicine which is comprised of a variety of modalities including acupuncture, herbal medicine, dietary therapy, nutritional counseling, and many adjunct therapies such as cupping, gua sha, essential oil therapy, & moxabustion.
Chinese Medicine is a complete medical system treating a variety of imbalances that present as symptoms — from the common cold, autoimmune disorders, addictions, digestive issues, reproductive problems, acute and chronic pain, mental-emotional disorders, to so much more. We will not only alleviate your symptoms but also offer long-term relief & transformation by addressing the root of your imbalances, providing you with tools, and encouraging participation in your own healing process. We’ve created a space where a person’s health is taken seriously; but our attitude remains light, easy, fun, & approachable. We’re committed to making our community a healthier & happier place.
We aim to provide a holistic self-care program, in which bodywork is vital. We share healing massage techniques that address injury prevention, recovery, & restoration. Massage aids in the healing process in various ways, form stimulating blood & lymph flow to simply providing space for the body to fully relax. By boosting the systems of the body, massage can help you function at your optimum and further sustain a healthy, happy life.
Our therapists are dedicated to working with you, whether it is to relieve chronic pain, keep you active & mobile, or provide deep relaxation. You & your therapist will create a custom session based on your needs. We frequently work in concordance with other members of your healthcare team.
Alchemy honors the practice of Chinese Medicine by offering classical formulas in our Apothecary and flavors meant to delight the palate & senses from our Tearoom.
Our commitment to well-being is deeply rooted in the quality of herbs that are available at our Apothecary. From common colds to more serious health conditions, our apothecary carries sustainable and organic herbs for thoughtfully prepared prescriptions.
The Tearoom is our bridge between the world of Chinese Medicine and the world of good food, good tea, & good company! Known for their healing & nourishing properties, house-made broths & kitchiri are the staples in our kitchen. An assortment of carefully concocted specialty drinks, such as Turmeric Chai & Liquid Cacao Bliss, will also be found on our menu.
We believe that good health can be fostered in a multitude of ways… From regular acupuncture sessions to enjoying a cup of tea with a friend.
