holistic assessments  for Optimal health and Wellness

Herbs on Wooden Spoon

An herbal consultation takes into account everything that makes you unique.  Each of our bodies has traveled different paths impacting our physical, mental and spiritual selves.  During an herbal consultation we will fill out intake forms together discussing your health concerns and goals, health history, any past trauma, lifestyle, look for organ system excesses or deficiencies, tissue states and begin to comb out some possible plant suggestions.  One thing to remember is this: an herbalist is not a doctor. Herbalists cannot diagnose or prescribe.   Your friendly herbalist can however make suggestions of plants  (teas, tinctures, topical apllications etc.) to help your body find balance and return to it's optimal state of function.  

Consultations with Shannon include:
60-90 minute face to face initial consultation to discuss your concerns and goals

30 -45 minute follow up in person, via phone or email- your choice- to review your personalized herbal suggestions.

Initial consultation cost $125, cash, check or pay pal only. Follow up consultations $1/minute.  Each individual will require different herbs, it is up to you what you choose to try - suggestions usually average $30-40 of herbal products.

If you cannot afford the cost of the consultations please contact me in advance to discuss possible payment or trade options. I strongly beleive in accessible care for everyone!

To schedule a consultation please contact Shannon at herbanartisans@gmail.com

Shannon Renne is a clinical herbalist with 5 years of formal education in plant medicine.  She enjoys a challenge working with acute or chronic illnesses, and is comfortable working with most prescriptions.
