The Healing Center at Avena Botanicals
An integrated approach to community health
A group of practitioners holding a shared commitment to working with the healing qualities of plants
As the practitioners of The Healing Center at Avena Botanicals, we are drawn together by our understanding of how the life force embodied within plants, trees and flowers plays a role in the healing process. We each come to this common ground with individual perspectives, skills and philosophies. This allows us to offer varying avenues for our clients to approach their healing, knowing they are also supported by our ability to refer and consult within our group practice.
We feel the plants help hold a supportive space for each session, guiding both client and practitioner through a positive healing experience. During a visit this guidance may take form in a variety of ways, including tinctures, teas, flower essences, or time connecting with the healing plants of the garden. We are grateful for the opportunity to offer these services within the embrace of Avena Botanicals' gardens, and look forward to serving our community.
