Consults

Herbal & Aromatherapy Consultation

Are you interested in a more natural approach to good health?

Private Consultations are available in person or over the telephone. As an herbalist, I do not “diagnose, treat, or prescribe” medical conditions. Instead I work with my clients to develop natural strategies to support health, well-being and the body’s own healing process. My goal as a Clinical Herbalist & Aromatherapist is to help you create a holistic health plan to promote vibrant, optimal healing with herbs, aromatherapy, lifestyle and dietary recommendations.

The initial consultation (approx. 1- 1.5 hours) begins with an extensive intake in order to understand your current and past health conditions. I use principles from Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Ayurveda to help in my assessment of the client. Tongue and pulse readings are taken. A Holistic Health Plan will be written up for you, which many include a recommended protocol for herbs, supplements or essential oils as well as dietary and lifestyle changes. Custom formulas may also be included in this plan.

Reiki sessions are also available with optional Aromatherapy (See Reiki page).

Waiver of Liability 

Clients are reminded that it is their personal right and responsibility to make educated choices in their own and their family’s health care. Soothing Herbals LLC does not make these choices for the client but provides educational resources in the historic and traditional uses of herbs. 

Only a physician (MD) can diagnose, treat and prescribe medicines for illness. The role of the Herbalist/Aromatherapist in any healing process is to consider the client as a whole person and to consult the client concerning lifestyle, diet, herbal and aromatherapy recommendations.
