Plants are sustainable and empowering.
90 min initial intake $120
20 min increment follow up $40
Intake is 90 minute Q&A discussing chief complaint/symptom, medical history, current prescriptions, family history, and systems of the body. Herbalist will offer nutrition and lifestyle changes, outsource as needed, and suggest herbal protocol. Herbal formulas may take up to 1 week to blend, longer if shipment is required, as Herbalist cross-references medications and medical history to avoid contra-indications.
The use of herbs (categorized as "Supplements" by the FDA) is not intended to treat, cure, diagnose, or prevent any disease. Accordingly, your herbalist cannot treat, cure, diagnose, or prevent any disease, and in doing so would be a violation of ethics and standards. Always consult your primary care giver before introducing new programs into your wellness routine.

What informs Fera?
Five Element Theory
Or Chinese Five Phase Theory, is based on the observation of nature to observe patterns to move experiences of "stuckness" in the body, mind, emotions, lifestyle, or work. This Philosophy foundations much of the consultation and may also be called into an adaptive yoga experience.
Our pro-bono project is to bring breath and body based stress management techniques to ALL PEOPLE regardless of age, race, gender identification, and socioeconomic status. Fera Wellness currently works with several non-profits and organizations, teaching these tools to populations with the least funding and greatest need.
We always value new connections with funding sources and agencies.

She has volunteer taught yoga at Elder Care Respite Centers, Juvenile Detention Centers, and other locations for prenatal yoga, meditation, and relaxation based breathing groups.
Bio-regionalism and Sustainability
After two years of trying to figure out how to live a truly sustainable lifestyle, Anne ran away from the circus and into an off the grid eco-village in 2008. There she studied edible and medicinal plants with Chuck Marsh of Useful Plants Nursery in Black Mountain, NC. This was also the year of her first Southeast Women's Herbal Conference and she drank the Kool-aid, hard. Since then she has been studying eastern healing modalities and western plants to create accessible, simple wellness solutions for friends, family, and now clients.
Her mission is to bring the abundance of resources we have in our local environment together to create strong, sustainable communities that will be available for future generations.
