Annie McDonnell is a New York State licensed acupuncturist, board certified by the NCCAOM, with a focus on relieving stress-related ailments. A graduate of Swarthmore College, she earned her master’s degree in acupuncture from the New York College of Traditional Chinese Medicine. She is certified in Acutonics, a needle-free treatment that uses the vibrational energy of tuning forks on acupuncture points, and continues to be an enthusiastic lifelong student of sound healing, aromatherapy, and other holistic specialties. She has studied gua sha facial rejuvenation with Dr. Ping Zhang, breathwork with Erin Telford, and Western herbalism with Peeka Trenkle and Robin Rose Bennett among other outstanding teachers.

A session with Annie will be customized to your individual needs, from a comprehensive intake interview fully discussing your health history to a treatment plan ranging from acupuncture to cupping, gua sha, sound healing, breathwork, flower essences, and other complementary techniques as needed, concluding with advice on self-care strategies you can easily continue at home. She welcomes the honor of helping you navigate your journey to true, harmonious wellness. With Joy Alchemy Acupuncture, her mission is to help you remember how joyful it’s possible to feel, using holistic medicine to deeply relax the nervous system, boost energy and blood circulation, and gently activate the body’s natural healing power.

Session: 01 Hour
A follow-up visit continues the treatment plan, including acupuncture, Acutonics, cupping, and/or other holistic techniques as needed.
Session: 01 Hour
Breathwork is a simple two-part breathing technique that powerfully releases old stuck emotions. The body holds on to traumatic experiences and feelings that haven’t been expressed, manifesting as tension, anxiety, pain, and other health conditions. In a breathwork session, Annie will coach you to breathe through whatever comes up, keeping you grounded through the laughter and tears as energetic blockages are released, supporting the process with music/sound therapy and essential oils. Afterward it’s common to feel euphoric, energized, and emotionally lighter.
Session: 01 Hrs 30 min
A new patient consultation includes an extensive health history interview and an acupuncture treatment, including Acutonics, cupping, gua sha, aromatherapy, and/or other holistic techniques as needed.
Session: 01 Hour
Using a jade gua sha tool specially designed to glide smoothly over the curves of the face, Annie massages the face and neck to relax muscle tension, drain lymph fluid, reduce puffiness, boost blood circulation, contour the jawline and cheekbones, minimize wrinkles, and apply acupressure. Besides feeling deeply relaxing and rejuvenating, facial gua sha can provide relief from headaches and TMJ (jaw pain) and improve recovery from Bell’s palsy/facial paralysis. To make the experience extra luxurious, she incorporates many gemstones—including skin-nourishing pearl powder, the cooling jade gua sha tool, and a soothing rose quartz facial roller—and finishes the treatment with a restorative crystal and sound meditation. If you’re interested, she’ll give you tips afterward on how to create a mini gua sha self-care routine at home.
