Plant medicine… used to restore your health, balance and well-being… naturally

Julie Wood – Medicinal Herbalist in Gillingham & Shaftesbury, Dorset

Herbs are our natural traditional medicine and they can restore health and well-being.  I am a qualified Medical Herbalist and am trained to prepare safe and effective herbal remedies using plants with medicinal actions specifically to meet your individual needs.

I offer initial face-to-face consultations, either in person or by skype if appropriate, and prescribe individual herbal remedies especially for you.

Plants give us the gift of life. Now we are remembering that they are offer us their true essence and deep wisdom to bring spiritual healing so that we can become our whole selves, to enrich our lives and live them with joy and fulfilment.

I offer a variety of workshops and courses throughout the year. Learn about the herbs, how and when to use them and how to make your own medicine.

I also offer bepoke workshops for one-to-one or small groups. What would you like to find out about the healing gifts of our natural world?

My Bespoke Medicine Days are for you, a one-to-one designed completely for your needs – healing, exploring, learning, fun!
