“Healing” is a word that means many things to many people. To me it involves more than just the resolution of symptoms or obtaining an ideal of perfect health, but is instead relational and dynamic. It is about how we learn, grow, and increase our understanding of ourselves and our situations so as to give meaning to our dis-ease and identify how we can make our journey to health a rich and creative process. It is about discovering the ways in which we are alive, embodied, and autonomous but in deep engagement with the vital forces of nature, our self-knowledge, our resonance with place, ancestors/descendants, community, and our own destiny.
Individualized Plantwork Session
with Lisa Fazio
During a plantwork session you and I will discuss your current health concerns and determine together what herbs and herbal remedies can be used to address them. You do not need to have any knowledge of herbs or have any experience with herbal medicine to try a session.
Your herbal protocol will be created based on 3 primary elements:
2. The condition and/or your concerns
3. The plants that resonate and correspond to both
The goal of a session is to share the specifics of herbal knowledge to support the self-attunement, empowerment, and positive actions that will help you to activate your innate healing potential while, at the same time, remove obstacles to that process.
Herbs are recommended as an important tool to supporting the resolution of chronic and acute illness alone or as an integral and complementary part of other practices.
Other recommendations may include some or all of the following:
Although herbs can work very quickly and used short term to address many minor health concerns/illnesses, when it comes to long term and chronic illness it involves deep healing work that often requires a strong commitmen. It may take several months for there to be noticeable shifts. The general rule is one month of following an herbal protocol for every year that the condition or issue has been present. That said, every “body” is different and no one can map or pre-determine your personal path to health for you. Miracles happen but are not expected or promised.
***You are at all times autonomous and at any time free to choose to stop any recommendations or to stop seeing me. I am also happy to share referrals to other practitioners if you should desire. After working together you may discover that you need to work with another practitioner or another modality instead. That is totally acceptable and I fully encourage everyone to follow their own healing journey.

You session will also include:
1-2 hours of your time
A discussion of the options for you herbal protocol based on what types of herbal preparations you prefer or would like to implement
A discussion of how much time you can commit to the implementation of your herbal protocol. For example: Some folks want it to be as simple as possible so we might include tinctures or capsules and some folks want to learn how to make their own tea blends.
A personalized plan with recommendations designed to meet your needs
two email conversations with Lisa
All herbal preparations are charged separately and you are in no way obligated to buy anything from me.
Your Customized Formula
*Not everyone wants or needs a customized formula. Sometimes recommendations can be just a simple tea. We determine this together and it is ultimately your choice.
The formula is a combination of herbs designed for your unique situation. The cost of a two-week supply of your formula will be about $25-30 plus shipping. I will always consider your budget requirements and will help you source the best quality herbal preparations or supplements for the best prices as well as offer guidance in making your own remedies.
Individual Plantwork Initial Session
We meet for your session online via zoom or by phone. And if you live in the Mohawk Valley region we can meet in person at:
The Root Circle, 2739 Newport Rd, Newport, NY
Pricing for sessions is based on the true cost or “going rate” of the average herbal consultation. I do offer a sliding scale if need be. The scale is income based but you will not be asked to provide and income information. You are responsible for relying on your own honesty and integrity to determine where you are along the scale. I offer a sliding scale because I believe that healthcare is a basic human right and want it to be as accessible as possible and at the same time be able to support and sustain myself and my ability to continue to do this work.
If you would like to inquire about sliding scale pricing email me: firstname.lastname@example.org and I will share full details and prices with you.
Follow-up appointments are usually 4-6 weeks after the intial appointment and generally last an hour or less. During these we will assess shifts that you have experienced on your protocol and other issues that may have arisen. We may make changes to your plan at this time if necessary.
Email Lisa if you have further questions:
A custom herbal care session is not a substitute for not consulting a medical professional and is intended to be for educational purposes where tradtional knowledge of plants is shared and an individual's relationship with their innate healing ability is facilitated. This is in no way intended to replace or simulate the activities of mainstream medicine that would diagnose, treat, or cure a medical condition and any resemblance to such is entirely incidental, and in fact, we hope that these sessions are far more inspiring and self-empowering than that.
