Individual Sessions // Custom Formulations // Community Clinic
East Bay Herbals offers private herbal consultations and custom formulations by appointment. We offer services for clients working with a range of issues including pre-existing medical conditions, general wellness, and preventative health. We work from a scope that encompasses the mind, body, and spirit and strive to incorporate these different aspects into our herbal recommendations. We work with our clients to find approachable strategies that work with their lives and meet them where they are. Herbal recommendations may include teas, extracts, salves, syrups, vinegar, oils, foods, and flower essences.
Common conditions treated through herbal medicine include digestion, stress, depression and anxiety, seasonal colds and flus, fatigue, reproductive issues, arthritis, immune system fortification, skin conditions, pregnancy support, chronic illness support, cancer treatment support, terminal illness support, autoimmune disease support, addiction, and others.
We are happy to have a network of other alternative healthcare practitioners that we refer out to if the client's issue would be better approached with a different modality. Are you a local practitioner that would like to connect? Reach out through the 'connect' section of the website.
