Lorie Eve Dechar
Lorie Eve Dechar, MAc, is an acupuncturist, author, artist, and alchemist. Her book, Five Spirits: Alchemical Acupuncture for Psychological and Spiritual Healing, explores wushen—the little-known Taoist version of the chakra system—and offers a vision of healing as transformation.

For the past 14 years, Lorie Eve Dechar has shared her multidimensional approach to healing with her patients, as well as with students at the Tri-State College of Acupuncture in Manhattan, the Institute of Traditional Medicine in Toronto, and at conferences and workshops in the
States, and abroad.
