I know how you feel…

Desperate and crazy, trying so many things that don’t seem to work.  Unsettled with a complete lack of confidence. Disconnected, stalled and misunderstood in your career, relationship and life.

I’m here to tell you

You Are Enough,

You Are Worthy

You are Whole

Everything you need or have been looking for to create a life that you love exists within you.

Surrender the search outside of yourself. 

It’s not about following someone else’s 10 step plan.

Its time to release the confusion, second guessing and let go of belief that you don’t deserve what you want.

To do this we tap into your 5 Element Alchemy.  Utilizing the 5 Elements of Chinese Medicine an intuitive 2000 year old personality test that holds the keys to you embracing “why you are the way you are”

Allowing your innate gifts to support you in manifesting your dreams and desires into reality.    

All while honouring your natural rhythms and flow.

When We Know Who We Are, We Are Free To Create A Life & Legacy That We Love


Are you?

Earth: a Nurturer and Peacemaker

Metal: the Artist, Alchemist and Poet

Water: a Dreamer, Philosopher and Mystic

Wood: a Pioneer, Warrior and Visionary

Leveraging your Elemental Potential Makes it Possible to:

Show up in the world as your authentic self and know that you belong

Do work in the world that inspires you,

Invite Abundance into your life with ease.

Experience deeper connection within your relationships


Trust your Intuition to guide you to your next steady step. 

The 5 Elements of Chinese Medicine can show you the way.

Tracy_headshotWorking with the Elements under Ashley’s guidance has allowed me to feel grounded in who I am and more accepting of my natural rhythms.  I also came to understand how I’m affected by the elements of each season and as a result I’m more objective to my feelings. I can process and make room for my emotions without having them take over my day, week or even longer.  With more emotional stability I am empowered to follow my dream of becoming a Life Coach.  I am able to apply this elemental lens when working with my clients which results in greater compassion.  Now, I’ve begun to apply these same principles to my dating life which has been incredibly informative as I learn how my alchemy and others’ work together.

My EAM awakening centres around bringing the Fire back into my life.  Before the program I wasn’t consciously aware of how much it had been stifled from too many years in a “roommate marriage” and too much time spent working from home without enough social contact. This program gave me the framework to think about what I valued and wanted out of life.  Then lo and behold love and romance unexpectedly arrived that re-lit that spark!  And once that spark was ignited my career took a new and exciting path all on its own as well – after almost THREE YEARS of being unemployed and not having any idea what direction to take.  I didn’t even have to try, it just all fell into place once I honoured my Alchemy’s needs. I reclaimed ME!

Before I began working with Ashley and the 5 Elements I was feeling incredibly misunderstood and frustrated.  I constantly felt like there was something wrong with me.  Why couldn’t I work and show up in the world like everyone else?  All while not wanting to do it their way in the first place. It just felt so out of step for me. EAM helped me embrace the fact that I’m a FIRE and as a Fire I need to step to the beat of my own drum – that’s who I am!  I had always been told that my way was wrong or problematic so this was a revelation and truly empowering.  I now feel as though I can finally give myself permission to do it MY way!   The sovereignty and calm that I feel in knowing who I am and not needing to apologize for it has been EVERYTHING!!  I am so much more compassionate and accepting of myself and those that I love. 

Katrien Ruehmland, Coach & Voice Facilitator



I’m going to walk you through this program over the next 6 months discovering your 5 Element Alchemy to provide insight on “WHY YOU ARE THE WAY YOU ARE” and weave this insight into an in-depth exploration and inquiry of each element’s (Earth, Metal Water, Wood and Fire) wisdom to promote a deeper understanding of your innate gifts and inner knowing to assist you in bringing your dreams and desires a reality.   Because our ability to reclaim our wholeness fuels our desires & our willingness to go after our desires confirms our wholeness.

A Little Bit About Me


I’m Dr. Ashley Abbs, the creator of the Embodied Alchemy Method

I’m a Doctor of Acupuncture, Writer and Mentor

I’m also an Earth Element with a strong Water Secondary and a little spark of Fire. 

I live in Calgary Alberta, Canada with my Husband, Son and our sweet puggle Lady Lily. Over the last 13 years I’ve worked in my health clinic TerraSana Health where I’ve helped hundreds of patients engage their own body’s healing ability and intuition to create the life of their desires. 

I’ve experienced first hand how revealing your Inner Alchemy and embodying the 5 Elements can heal and consolidate the parts of you that feel fragmented and restore wholeness to manifest your dreams into reality.


Fostering my Elemental Alchemies virtues and gifts has allowed me to create a practice that supports my inner alignment, form right relationship between my roles as a mother, wife & entrepreneur, all while making space to guide others to create change and transformation in their relationships, work, practices and self.

Everything has opened up for me and I want that for you too.

Here’s how to know if this course is right for you…

• Life is changing: you’re beginning a new project, going back to work after raising your babes, ending a relationship, or your children are individuating and you now have more time than you know what to do with.

• You feel lost: you’ve changed and aren’t sure how your life fits together anymore.

• You feel stuck: your job is boring, your relationships feel strained, or your roles are draining your vitality.

• You feel like you’re living someone else’s life: your parent’s, your partner’s, your friend’s, either way it’s not authentically yours.

• You’re wondering what went wrong? Where did I lose myself? How did I get so off track?

• You don’t know what you want anymore: or even the first step to figuring it out.

• You know what you want: but you get distracted by the needs and demands of everyone else or life’s current circumstance.

Of course, life isn’t always about struggle, this course is right for you if…

• You feel like you’re being initiated into a life that is much bigger than what you’re currently living and you want pragmatic and grounded principles that you can see and touch to help you make it a reality.

• You’re ready to adapt soulful strategy and empowered action to follow thru with your goals and desires.  (you’re done with just thinking and talking about them)

• You want to learn to be more productive AND more playful.

• You desire to know yourself like never before, embracing even the hard parts with compassion and unconditional love.

• You’re ready to reconcile your heart so that you no longer feel like you’re choosing between the people that you love and your ambition.

Prior to The Embodied Alchemy Method I was feeling desperate.  I was trying so many different things that I thought I should be doing to create my ideal life.  But none of them were working.  I was just digging myself into a hole with my business, and my relationships with both my husband and children were strained.  Now, having cycled through the phases of the program, I feel empowered to change my career and start using more of my innate gifts.  I’m more connected in my relationships because I’m not trying to chase all of the shiny objects.  I’m more trusting and clear in my choices because I feel more grounded and at home within myself which has been the biggest blessing.  When I first signed up I thought I was going to learn more about the elements but it was so much more and so much better than that!  I come back to this work again and again. It has supported me through so many seasons.

Transformation!  That’s what everyone has seen in me since I started with The Embodied Alchemy Method.  I have two strong elements, Wood and Earth.  My Earth wants to take care of anyone and everyone and I was doing that at the expense of my own needs without fully realizing it.  This program has helped me start setting boundaries where I need to and it is so Liberating!  And when a person is liberated they can move forward confidently in life.  That confidence allowed my Wood element to reveal itself more fully and an exciting new career path has opened up that allows me to use my creative talents which is really exciting.  I’m in such a better place through understanding and honouring the inherent needs of my alchemy.  Everyone should take this course and invest in becoming their BEST self!

deanne-340The shift that has occurred for me through the process of working with Ashley and the EAM is night and day.  Before I was feeling lost and unsure of any sort of direction or where to go next.  My relationships were disconnected and my business was stalled.  I was a bit hesitant to join due to the financial commitment but I have to say this program has been worth every penny.  In the process of understanding my Alchemy and the natural evolution of the Elements I was able to uncover who I really am, along with how to honour my natural ways of being through connection and flow so that I can create a life that I love.  As a result, I am creating a business that is inspired by my gifts and IT’S GROWING!! Not to mention my connection with my kids and husband has deepened.  We’re so much healthier emotionally as I can look to our Alchemies to help understand and support us. The value of being able to turn inward for my answers instead of looking externally has been such a gift.

The greatest gift that I received from working with Ashley and learning about the Elements is uncovering that I’M NOT CRAZY!! I am just a Fire-Water combo which means I have two very different elements that need to be nurtured.  This knowledge has also helped me be more compassionate toward myself and other people, seeing how their alchemies interact with mine. Embracing my Fire has empowered me to live without apology in all areas of my life, work and relationships.  I also love that I can instantly tune into the Elements to check in with myself, and if there’s anything out of alignment I have tools to work with to bring it back into harmony.  Its been so grounding for me and I use it in so many practical applications.  I feel so supported by this work, Thank you!

When I first started to work with Ashley and the 5 Elements I had no idea what to expect, but it was nothing short of AMAZING!  I went from feeling unsettled and having a complete lack of confidence in myself to being able to authentically say that I love me for me.  I now feel empowered to surround myself with friends and clients that align with my core values and I’m no longer compromising who I am to make others happy.  The whole process unfolded so organically. I am awestruck at every transition that happened and how it just naturally came to fruition leading me to live a life that I absolutely love!

Ashley Abbs is a modern day medicine woman.  Modern day in that she is living a full life as a mother, wife, friend, acupuncturist/healer, and entrepreneur.  Medicine woman in that while doing all the things every busy woman does in her life, she has prioritized maintaining her connection to source and using her intellect to serve her constructively by mapping out the five elements as an accessible offering for all of us who didn’t have the extra time to go to acupuncture school for 4 years, practice for 10 years, etc.  Ashley has the magic touch where simply being in her presence or thinking of her inspires the remembering of how very important it is to attune to our natural rhythms as women and the natural rhythms of mother earth.  To learn from her is a blessing of incredible depth, height and width. These teachings will help you honour the journey you are on by connecting you to a long lineage of those who have also walked this path of embodied alchemy.
