About

Creator Alexis Lively is an experienced practitioner versed in the healing arts for over a decade. Following a ten-year career as a licensed massage therapist, she went on to follow her dream of becoming a Chinese medicine practitioner and acupuncturist. She is currently working toward her masters, and eventually her Ph.D. at the Oregon College Of Oriental Medicine in Portland Oregon. In the meantime, she is creatively combining her greatest hobby of personal healing methods by making plant medicine at home while curating lavish herbal and flower baths as a way to inspire others to practice self-care and personal development. As a future acupuncturist, she’d like to focus her career on mental and emotional health for folks who suffer from anxiety, depression, PTSD and other current or past life emotional ties. She seeks to create and facilitate individualized practices of connection and care to heal our full selves, physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. She dedicates her time and energy to help people find their inner-most selves and sanctuaries. Emotional health begins with self-devotion, and her mission is to help others see their uniqueness and beauty through the grace of herbal medicine and self-care rituals. In seeking a more profound understanding and deep love of ourselves, we can then heal our communities. Her motto, simply stated is, “for the collective.”

WHAT DOES HEART SEVEN MEAN?
For those of you who are wondering, the name Heart Seven comes from my most beloved acupuncture point “Shenmen,” which means “Spirit gate.” The spirit of the heart is called shen according to Chinese medicine. When the heart-mind is balanced, the shen resides in its place and is protected, however, shen is easily disturbed by trauma which can cause it to leave its chamber. When the shen leaves the heart, the connection with spirit is lost and can cause a person to feel anxious, depressed, and separated from themselves and others. 
Shenmen calms the mind & spirit, eases anxiety, sadness, depression & mania, and It helps to mend a broken heart (which is how I personally discovered its healing powers.) Shenmen helps improve memory and mental capacity; it helps with heart palpitations & insomnia/ restless sleep and so, so much more.
