Dr. Hessel’s personal testimony for Network Chiropractic care:
“I was first introduced to Network Chiropractic care when I was in my 3rd year of chiropractic college. I had been receiving traditional Chiropractic care since I was 12 years old due to back pain and headaches. Probably like most people I thought that Chiropractic care was about getting rid of pain/symptoms. When I found Network (or it found me), it was the first time in my life where I started to feel and connect to being in my body. I became aware of tension patterns that I had been living with for many years in a new way and the intelligence of my body literally “woke up”. I began to experience this innate intelligence, which is really the foundation of Chiropractic, course through my body as a physical experience and with that in the first few months of Network Chiropractic care those tension patterns shifted dramatically and my body/being reorganized. As my system reorganized I began to experience higher levels of energy and with that, the experience that I was much more than a physical form. I realized I was also an energetic being connected to this indescribable energy source that felt like love and bliss. I had (and continue to have) new awareness of what I am, the power of my being, and this field of love with which I am always connected too. I’m grateful to Network Chiropractic for helping me connect to the gifts that I am here to give through service in bringing more love into the world.”
A center where people transmute, alchemize and use their pain to become a new, expanded version of themselves who leads life from their heart. A place that assists in increasing each person’s capacity to heal, create empowered choices and show up in the world as they truly desire.

The mission of the center is to provide high level well-being care that optimizes the bodymind for people who want to live non-ordinary and extraordinary existences and contribute their gifts like crazy in this world.

At Chiropractic Alchemy we know that the more presence you have in any endeavor the less force you need. This runs counterintuitive to what most of us have come to believe. You are designed for subtlety, but in our noisy world it is hard to hear your body unless it is screaming in pain.
We also know that you are a self-healing, self-regulating being and have the resources inside of you to heal, transform and awaken to your next level. Through assessment, with presence and the wisdom of your body, healing happens and infinite new possibilities for health and well being emerge.
