Pure Alchemy is a space in the heart of Cronulla offering traditional Chinese and Wholistic Healing.


General Wellness

Many people choose to have acupuncture and herbal medicine just to feel better. Chinese medicine sees treatments as a way to balance the functionof the body so that each component works well with each other.

We tune our cars on a regular basis to run well, so acupuncture and Chinese herbs works in a similar way. If any one component in the car is not operating well, it has an effect on the whole car, and the way that it drives.

Pain Management

Pain comes from many sources and can affect any part of the body.

We apply traditional practices which may help relieve and manage pain.

Cosmetic Acupuncture

Cosmetic acupuncture involves incredibly fine needles being inserted into specific areas.

We only use the highest grade Serin Cosmetic Acupuncture needles which are ultra-fine and silicon coated to ensure your experience is as pain-free as possible.

Women’s Health

A woman's body is complex and goes through many changes from puberty through to old age. Our bodies also goes through cycles every month. Each of these need to be cared for and honoured.

We aim to provide an environment that supports these changes through the use of acupuncture and herbal medicine. Being in a Woman's body should be celebrated, and not considered a curse.


We offer a range of traditional wholistic practices which may help to support you physically and emotionally during your pregnancy journey.

This includes IVF, Prenatal, Pre Pregnancy, Pregnancy and Post Pregnancy.



Cupping is another technique in Traditional Chinese Medicine. It is commonly used to counter muscular aches and pains.

Cupping involves placing a flame inside a glass cup, forming a vacuum. The cup is then placed on a specific area of the body and this process is then repeated over different areas of the body.


We now offer Telehealth appointment and consultations for anyone, anywhere across Sydney, Australia and the world.

This is for energy healing, general consults, and Chinese medicine.

Energy Healing

Healing has its roots in Shamanism, and Chinese Medicine is also no different. Many of the original healers of China were Shamans, and fundamental to their understanding of life was how to live in accordance to the universal flow.

Energy is everywhere, and increasingly, quantum physics is validating this. Fundamentally as human beings, we too are condensed pure potential. As condensed energy we have the ability to change it.


The body is a self-healing organism, so it’s really about clearing things out of the way so the body can heal itself.

Anissa has been practising since 2007 as a registered Chinese Medicine consultant. In our day and age where time is short and people are extremely busy, she believes that healing absolutely requires proactive, empathetic listening to understand the root cause of ailments, good communication to convey understanding, good knowledge of the craft, and a passion for healing.

The focus of each treatment is to address the manifesting symptoms, but to also look at the underlying cause. This is done through a mixture of acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, massage, dietary and lifestyle advice. No two people can be treated exactly the same, and thus must be addressed differently.

"We must treat each person as an individual with certain needs, and an amazing capacity to heal when given the right environment".
