The Classic: Individual health consultations
I offer one on one consultations in person or by phone. In the initial 90 minute appointment we will review your health history together, I will take your pulses and examine your tongue. We will discuss simple changes in lifestyle, diet & supplements, and I may recommend a custom herbal formula for you. These consultations are very educational, so I suggest you bring a notebook or paper to take notes during our sessions.
You’ll return (or call) for a follow up appointment in 3 weeks and every month until your health is much improved. At that time you’ll have a plan of action to maintain your health, and we’ll meet when ever you have questions or new developments. While we are working together it is very important you return for your follow up visits so I can monitor your progress and change the formula as your body changes.
Herbs allow the tissues of the body to heal and disease processes to reverse. This is a very active way of engaging with your health. Most people come in for a particular problem and once that is resolved, we move on to an older health issue. I am always delighted to tell people they can actually be healthier as they age!
If you are interested in Ayurveda and would like to discuss your constitution and recommendations for maintaining your health using this sublime tradition this is the consultation for you! So many people are introduced to Ayurveda (literally, the science of life) in yoga classes and training. It is a wonderful tradition I have been teaching for the past several years. I find it easily applicable to modern health diagnoses as well. And I love that it is consistent with quantum physics and each new scientific discovery!

Reiki energy sessions
I find any herbal treatment is enhanced by regular body work, so am delighted to offer Reiki as a way to support our Ayurvedic and herbal work together, or as a stand alone treatment. These sessions are sometimes very relaxing, sometimes very informative, and sometimes very cathartic.
Other types of health consultations
Companion animal consultation – as a supplement to regular veterinary care I offer advice on maintaining health, and using food and herbs to support the treatment of illness.
Family health consultation – evaluation of your family in your home or at my office.
Pre-op (or post-op) surgical consultation – a specialized form of the individual consultation. I am also available for Reiki sessions after surgery in the hospital or in your home.
Second opinion &/or plan for integrative approach – a more focused version of the individual health consultation.
