Philosophy of Practice
I practice holistic, integrated health care. This approach assumes that the whole is greater than the sum of the parts and that the patient has an innate ability to heal, which it is my job to help the patient tap into. In a consultation we will address issues of diet and nutrition, exercise, rest, hobbies, and spirituality. I often prescribe deep breathing remedies, massages, colonic hydroptherapy, enemas, accupuncture and specific herbs along with suplementation therapies. I try to foster a sense of wholeness in my clients and to encourage their deep connection to the plant world. I encourage the client to create a healing team around themselves and I expect my clients to actively engage in the healing process and to fully participate with me in seeking optimal health and well-being.
What to expect in an initial consultation
The first signature visit lasts anywhere from 90- 120 minutes. An extensive intake form is completed first by the patient, and ideally submitted ahead of time for me to preview. In the session, I will review the answers and elicit further information as necessary. We will discuss current health concerns, past medical history, family health, diet and exercise habits, emotional well-being, and state of mind. I will review any medical diagnosis and work with you to determine how best to approach the health concerns. I will be recording your heart rate, emotional status, and conduct a full TCM physical assessment where I examine your eyes, pulse, nails, and tongue. I have certified training in Reiki energy healing, Flower Essences, and other energetic systems of health and healing, which I will use in my treatment and protocol to assist your health transformation. From this case review, I will evaluate the healing priorities and create a customized protocol of herbs, tinctures, supplements, nutritional programs, and spiritual energy work.
You will be able to pick up your herbs 2 days after your appointment. I will evaluate the information in our session, formulate a custom protocol for you, and then create the remedy associated with the treatment plan. This will be emailed to you, and it is your responsibility to ask any questions you may have about your protocol before commencing the program. If the Wildflower Clinic does not have the herb needed, Ms. Hutchinson will refer you to another local apothecary or herbal dispensary. Most nutritional supplements can be ordered from Amazon, or picked up from your local Whole Foods. If you are not in the area or fly in for the visit, then I will ship herbs to you at a nominal charge.
What to expect in a follow up consultation
Follow up visit are 45 minutes and are usually held every 2-3 weeks depending on the health issues we are working on. Most client's will need at least 4-5 sessions to begin to see full-body transformation in their health. In these sessions we will evaluate the progress, discuss any problems, or concerns that have arisen and review the treatment protocols.
What are the costs?
The cost of an initial 90 minute intake session is $125.00 and includes Chinese diagnostic tools, intake discussion, and a nutritional cleanse. Our 2 hour "signature" intake involves the same 90 minute intake and either a 30 minute flower essence session or a 30 minute reiki session after the session, which is $200.00. Proceeding with the herbal protocol I recommend, there is a $35 formulation charge per patient to initially formulate your custom herbs and write your herbal protocol sheet. Follow up visits are 75.00 USD plus tax for 45 minutes and a minimum of 3 follow up visits is recommended after the intial intake appointment.
Custom remedies and herbal formula estimates are priced below:
· 8 oz custom herbal tea blend- 45.00 USD- 55.00 USD
· 2 oz. custom tincture- 50.00 USD- 65.00 USD
· Mini Treatment add on (30 minutes)- 60.00 USD
*Costs for complicated & chronic conditions may be outside these price windows. Patients with serious medical conditions should be aware that it is unreasonable to expect herbs to have potent effects unless substantial amounts are taken. “Big disease takes big medicine”. If you are taking any medications or engaging in other treatments prescribed by a physician, it is important that Ms. Hutchinson knows the nature of these medications and that they are disclosed to her. Additionally, you should check to determine that herbs taken in these potent doses will not cause a negative reaction with your other medications.
Herbal medicine is not yet covered by general insurance in the State of Colorado. For those with extended medical coverage we recommend that you keep your receipts and try to claim it – some people have been fortunate to receive reimbursements. If you are self-employed you may be able to write it off – ask your accountant.
As a professional Certified Clinical Herbalist, it is my duty and responsibility to provide you with the best health care information and support that I can. If you have any problems or are in some way unsatisfied with your experience here, please let me know.
