WHAT TO EXPECT:
Wellness consultations take place in the my office in San Francisco's mission district. Expect a nice cup of herbal tea and a comfortable chair. It is a warm, welcoming and often intriguing place for plant enthusiasts and people new to herbal medicine alike.
Initial intakes are approximately 1.5 hours long. Follow-up visits are about 45 minutes. I also hold 30 minute visits for $40 for clients who need a quick formula to help with an acute condition.
At our first appointment, I will conduct a fairly extensive intake. We will discuss your health concerns and health history, talk about the food you like to eat and the activities you like to participate in. I also take your pulse and look at your tongue to see if there are clues into your health that you might not have known or thought relevant to share.
One of the most profound things about articulating the minute details of your health, is being able to look at your health from a holistic perspective and identify areas that you want to enhance or change. This is a great time to set up intentions and goals -- ones you might not have thought of previously.
Herbal formulas are crafted for clients during this visit for them to take home at the end of the session. Sometimes, if a client has a complicated or extensive illness or are taking many pharmaceuticals, I will create a formula for them after the visit is over to make sure I can account for any thing that comes up and any contraindications with medicine.
***I do not turn people away for lack of funds -- please contact me if you would like to come in but cannot afford my full rates.
90 MINUTES $100

I also take each clients pulse and look at your tongue to see if there are clues into your health that you might not have known or thought relevant to share. At the end of the intake, I will mix a custom herbal blend for you to take home.
For clients who are on medications or who have a fairly chronic, or complicated illness, I often work on your formula to cross check contraindications and give it to you within a few days following the initial intake.

Follow up consultations are for clients who have already had an initial intake.
