plants + you +  healing

 
An herbalist is a person who uses plants, foods, and other natural healing techniques to support good health and the body’s innate healing processes.
— Phyllis Light

“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.

Lisa Fazio is a knowledgeable, experienced, intuitive wise-woman who has helped me immensely. I value her acumen with herbs and essences and her unending patience and kindness. A session with Lisa is the opposite of a doctor’s visit. It is comfortable and easy, more like spending time with a very interested and understanding friend. I walk away invigorated with the plans and means Lisa has given me to improve my life through better health. Thank you, Lisa, for all that you do!

Your herbal protocol will be created based on 3 primary elements: 

  1. You

    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: 

  • Dreamwork

  • Lifestyle

  • Psycho-Spiritual

  • Supplements

  • Nutrition

  • Movement

  • Ritual

  • Flower Essences

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.

Some Of The Issues That Can Be Addressed During A Session

Custom Formulations

Together we will devise a protocol that usually includes one or more custom made herbal formulas designed to align with your specific constitution, health history, and symptoms.

Other herbal preparations that might be recommended are: herbal teas, cooking herbs and spices, herbal powders, external remedies such as salves, creams, or poultices.

 

Initial Session

After you make your appointment you'll receive an intake form. During your session we will go over it as we work together, as partners, to determine your unique needs, constitution, and the underlying patterns of your symptoms.

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: lisa@therootcircle.com and I will share full details and prices with you.

My intention when I started to see Lisa as a client was to find a more holistic way of treating some nagging issues I was dealing with. Her approach of treating the whole body, mind and spirit has helped to get to the root of these issues. Her ability to listen and truly hear is key along with her knowledge and experience with plants that are supportive to body. Not only has she advised but she has introduced and educated me to a better way of taking care of myself....grateful

Working with herbal medicine woman Lisa helped me in my journey to heal a “chronic” illness. She has magical intuition and a deep knowledge and understanding of the plant world connection. Our meetings were insightful on many levels and the tinctures, tonics, and salves are potent and powerful.
— Catherine
My family and I have been working with Lisa for many years. The way she applies ancient and traditional wisdom to modern living is beyond inspirational. Her services are individualized, customized and tailor made for each person. If you are looking for a better understanding of yourself and how you relate to your environment, look no further, The Root Circle is a great start to an incredible journey.”

Disclaimer

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.
