Herbal Consultations for health and wellness are available with herbalist Andrea Stines. If you are looking for ways to empower yourself in your healing journey and overall wellness, an herbal consultation may be just the thing to help you on your way. The consultation is designed to offer you a variety of tools and a deeper understanding of what options may be available to you as you decide how you’re healing is going to begin. Discovering nourishing foods, exercises, herbs, flower essences, supplements and essential oils are just some the tools you can choose to utilize in this process. Helping you as you become fully informed as you make the best decisions for your very individual situation are all part of the foundations of your herbal consultation visit.
What to expect
Initial visits tend to run from 1-2 hours. Initial visits begin with a review of the detailed intake form you filled out prior to your visit. Together we will look at your health history, dietary and lifestyle practices, overall constitution and any other factors that are related to the reason for the consultation. With your full involvement we will develop an integrated wellness program that will support your needs. We will look at your situation from a place of whole person instead of dealing with just the presenting symptoms perspective. We will create a specific program so you are set for success as you begin your journey. This will include herbal, dietary, spiritual and lifestyle suggestions. Herbal recommendations may involve various options depending on your personal needs. These may include herbal nutrition, teas, tinctures, flower essences, elixirs, herbal baths, salves, creams or essential oils. They will include a custom formula, tea and/or standard formulas. The primary goal of the consultation is to help you find a path that will work for you in your situation. After an initial visit we will look at what support you might need to accomplish your goals and set up subsequent visits if they are needed.
It is generally recommended to follow-up with 1/2 hour visits, once or twice within first 3 months after your initial visit, and then as needed.
