Herbal Consultations consist of assessment, diagnosis and integrating herbs alongside diet, lifestyle and simultaneous conventional therapies. Rachael treats the needs of the clients, not the disease. She provides customized herbal formulations, diet recommendations, and lifestyle suggestions based in Traditional Chinese, Ayurvedic, and Western Herbal traditions.
How it works: Clients schedule an initial consultation, and fill out a detailed intake form. We will meet in person or over the phone/skype to go over the details and characteristics of the clients health concerns. This usually lasts 45-90 minutes. After the initial consultation, I will create an individualized strategy to assist the client in reaching their health goal through customized herbal formulations, as well as diet and lifestyle recommendations. I will e-mail these recommendations and a detailed protocol sheet within a few days following the initial consultation. I offer a free 15 minute phone call to review the recommendations and answer any questions. As the client begins to implement their specialized protocol, I offer email support should any questions arise.
Follow-up appointments are about 30 minutes and are dependent on the client and their specific health goals. Some clients implement their protocol, improve quickly, and do not need a follow-up session. While others need slight adjustments to a formula to continue to improve upon the original health goal or to work on other health issues that arise. Clients may also use follow-up consultations as a seasonal wellness program.

Customized herbal formulas are not included in the cost of the consultation. Herbs can cost anywhere between $20-140 for 2-4 weeks of treatment.
If you cancel within a 24-hour period, you will be charged a $30 late cancellation fee. I understand that emergencies happen, but when you cancel it is discourteous to other patients who might benefit and it is difficult to refill your time slot. If you miss your appointment, this is considered as a "no-show" and you will be charged the full amount for the appointment. Please be respectful of my time and courteous to other patients time by cancelling before the 24-hour window of your appointment to avoid these fees - thank you!
