Clinical Herbalists are trained in western and eastern medicine to support finding the root cause of illness and supporting one's whole body through a variety of holistic offerings. They choose herbal medicine, supplements, and lifestyle/nutrition enhancements based on the needs of the client during the consultation and create a custom treatment plan for each individual's healing journey. The goal of working with a clinical herbalist is to help the client bring body, mind and spirit back into balance and offer each person tools for higher vitality and wellness.
