An herbal health consultation is a forum for us to explore, together, your health history and your current health picture. We will start with what feels most pertinent to you, whether that be a physical ailment or something of a more emotional or spiritual nature. We will focus only on what you are ready and open for. This will usually involve discussing your lifestyle, diet, self-image, major life events that may have effected your well-being, patterns of illness, family health history, things you have tried so far, and what you would like your health to look like (your goals).
In a health consultation, I am essentially doing the following:
- Listening deeply to your health story: to the way in which you view your health, to your emotional, physical and energetic health history and to patterns of balance or imbalance.
- Listening to the plants: paying attention to which plants step forward to work with you, whether to be of help in aiding your physical body, to help shift energetic patterns that are holding you back, or to soothe and nurture past traumas that need to be resolved in order to move forward.
- Checking in with your energetic anatomy (your chakras): paying attention to where you might have blockages, where you hold tension, unresolved trauma or imbalance, and how that might correlate with the story I am hearing in your personal history.
All of these aspects, together, help me to gain a picture of who you are, where you are, what transformation or healing you are wanting to move towards, what you are ready for, and how the plants, or other support, might be able to assist you in moving there. As this picture develops, I will let you know what I am hearing, seeing and feeling about your health patterns and what might be supportive to you in shifting them.
Towards the end of your consultation, I will make recommendations. Recommendations may include anything from a mantra, affirmation or practice to take into your daily life, other lifestyle changes including diet, more time for relaxation or exercise, as well as a tincture or compounded herbal formula for physical/emotional support, or flower essences and low dose tinctures for spiritual support. I may also recommend that you seek the support of another health care practitioner or that you check in with your Primary Care Physician regarding support you may need from them. My goal is to help you create the change you want to see in your health in a way that feels empowering, attainable and inspiring to you. If possible, I will supply the suggested tinctures or flower essences from my apothecary. Otherwise, I will recommend sources whom I know and trust. Remedies are priced separately.
An initial consultation includes a thorough intake including previous health history and background information, an energy body assessment, a review of all medications and an overview of family history before making recommendations. These initial consults are generally 90-120 minutes and are $180.
Follow-up consultations for already established clients include a check in, a review of how things have been going, an assessment of current protocols and an energy body assessment before recommendations. Follow up consults are 60 minutes and are $80.
I have found over 8 years of practice that the most effective way of working with a client towards lasting improvement is with regular follow-up sessions over a period of a few months. This helps to deepen the work we do together by encouraging supported integration in your life, conversation about your experience, and ongoing support with any obstacles that arise. It is with this in mind that I offer a package to make multiple sessions more affordable. This package includes an initial consultation and two follow up consultations for $300.
You can schedule a session by phone or email. I can be reached at 207.230.9526 or at firstname.lastname@example.org. While I prefer to offer consultations in person for those who are local, I also offer them through Zoom for anyone, anywhere. All you need is a reliable internet connection.
I accept payment via cash, check, venmo, paypal, visa and mastercard
If you need to cancel or reschedule an appointment, please notify me at least 24 hours in advance by phone. There is a $30 fee for cancellations or no-shows without proper notice.
