Ashley Davis, herbalist & Co-Founder of Tonic & Founder of  the Sacred Garden School

***Ashley is not available for consultations for the remainder of 2021 as she focuses her time on developing curriculum for next year’s programs.

The initial consultation lasts an hour and a half, during which time I collect a detailed health history as well as an energetic assessment of a client’s emotional and physical needs. We go over all of the major systems of the body, looking for patterns and ways that each part is affecting the whole. I draw on systems of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Ayurveda as well as Traditional Western Herbalism. This is both a scientific and intuitive process that allows me to make individually-tailored herbal recommendations for each client.

As an herbalist, I do not diagnose, treat, or prescribe medical conditions. I do work with my clients to develop natural strategies to support health, well-being, and the body’s own healing processes. This is often in the form of diet and lifestyle recommendations, as well as herbal teas and tinctures.

After the initial consultation I like to follow up with clients once a month for the first 2-3 months, then on an as needed basis. Most formulas need to be re-evaluated about once a season, and this provides an excellent opportunity to reevaluate your health and tweak the formula accordingly. Follow-up sessions can take 30-60 minutes and are available in person or by phone.

My fees are $125 for the initial hour and a half consultation, which includes the first follow-up consultation, and $45 for subsequent follow-ups.

About Ashley

I have been studying and practicing herbal medicine for over 10 years. My primary teachers include Kat Maier, Ursula Bach, Stephen Buhner and Joseph Immel and my study has been a blend of Western, Chinese and Ayurvedic teachings.

My love affair for herbs began with an interest in self-sufficiency and sustainability, and quickly expanded into a full-on paradigm-shifting immersion that satisfied my spirit on so many levels. I continue to be amazed by the multi-dimensional dynamics of the plant world, and find the connections between human health, planetary health and universal consciousness to be endlessly fascinating.

I love to teach and share about the many uses of a single plant, the many ways of thinking about an imbalance, the satisfaction of making your own medicine from wild plants, the different cultural perspectives on elemental theory, and the beautiful mysteries of Nature.

Dr. Antoine Chevalier, PhD    

Wholistic Wellness Sessions

A session with Dr. Antoine begins with a digitial homeopathic frequency (“biofeedback”) assessment of your whole body, that can detect nutritional deficiencies, toxins, infections and more. A customized non-invasive electromagnetic acupressure treatment usually follows, along with advanced cognitive therapy. Recommendations include a customized detox protocol, daily exercises and nutritional, and an herbal tonic formula specifically designed for you.

This is the “get your life back” program, which led Dr. Chevalier world wide, treating people from Dubai, Japan, Canada, Germany, France and around the United States. This approach is completely non-inviasive, safe and life-changing. A vast range of issues can be addressed.

An initial appointment typically lasts for 4 hours and the cost is a sliding scale of $250-$450. Dr. Chevalier usually charges $450+ at his office in DC, but is offering a reduced fee for WV clients.

Follow-Up appointments take 1-2 hours and are $150-$250

After the initial visit, you will have a personalized protocol to last for 3-6 months, depending on the conditions you are facing. There is a biweekly follow up with zoom and more assessments which allow the protocols to be adjusted as your needs change.

Antoine comes to Shepherdstown about 5 days/month, usually the 4th week of the month.

Elizabeth Braithwaite, NP, herbalist & energy worker

Elizabeth is a Family Nurse Practitioner,  Integrative Energetic Medicine & Coaching Practitioner, and the founder of Arise Inner World. Elizabeth has been a nurse for nearly 25 years and has spent her career in the care of women & children. Over the past 5 years she  reawakened her interest in ancestral medicine. This journey  led her to studies in energy healing, food as medicine,  herbalism, and plant spirit medicine. Elizabeth continues to  deepen and expand her knowledge by seeing clients, teaching workshops, and living her life in service to nature. Elizabeth’s Offerings:

Pelvic Wellness- Holistic Pelvic Care™- a gentle form of internal pelvic floor bodywork and intra-vaginal massage. HPC™ is similar to traditional physical therapy in that it addresses the physical aspects of pelvic floor imbalance, but it brings with it a deeper understanding of  health and balance at the root of a woman’s equilibrium: her pelvis.

Who can benefit from Holistic Pelvic Care™? Any woman who is looking to reestablish a connection to her  pelvic bowl, or who is simply seeking to nurture her female  body in a holistic way, may benefit from one or more treatment sessions. However, specific concerns that may be aided by HPC™ include (but are not limited to) painful sexual activity, myofascial pelvic pain syndrome, urinary  leakage or incontinence, chronic bladder or vaginal infections, rectocele/cystocele, fertility support and pregnancy preparation, postpartum recovery, healing after pregnancy loss, pelvic congestion, menstrual imbalances,  history of pelvic trauma, support transition to menopause, and long-term vaginal health

Integrative Energetic Medicine and CoachingIEM&C is a gentle, non-invasive approach that promotes  physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual healing. Working  with the energy fields, chakras, and awareness dialogue  Elizabeth assists you to identify where your energy flow may be compromised. It can provide an increased sense of well being, a decrease in anxiety, release of physical and emotional  tension, increased mental clarity, and acceleration of physical  healing. IEM&C is beneficial for acute and chronic pain, chronic fatigue, stress and anxiety, PTSD, insomnia,  environmental/seasonal allergies, headache, post-operative  recovery, and healing around personal relationships.

Ear Acupuncture The NADA protocol involves the gentle placement of up to  five small sterilized disposable needles into specific sites on  each ear. The recipient sits quietly for 30-45 minutes allowing  the treatment to take effect. Ear acupuncture is an adjunct therapy for stress, PTSD, anxiety, fatigue, migraine headache, smoking cessation, PMS, insomnia, and withdrawal from opiates. Recipients often experience increased calmness, better sleep, less agitation, relief of emotional trauma and a  discovery of inner quiet & strength.
