Lorraine Hughes specializes in herbal medicine and nutrition. She offers comprehensive wellness consultations, using assessment techniques based in Chinese Medicine to provide each person with their own unique treatment plan. She also offers stress-reduction services, including Reiki, reflexology, acupoint aromatherapy and qigong (private and group classes).

What drew you to this profession? 

About 25 years ago I embarked upon my own health journey. During this process I was fortunate to meet with naturopaths and practitioners of Chinese Medicine, to which I owe a debt of gratitude. Nature heals, and this is my way of paying it forward.

How does your work differ from that of others in your profession? 

I feel that my approach is unique in that I utilize assessment techniques based in Chinese Medicine, correlating the client’s “patterns” in an East-West approach, including lifestyle, diet, detoxification, movement and breath work. I am also a Chinese and Western custom herbal formulator.

What should someone expect from working with you? 

They should expect an open and honest discussion concerning their health and wellness goals. Each person will determine their own progression to vibrant health based upon taking ownership of their journey by making the changes they need to make. I will be there to guide them along the way.

What changes do have you planned for 2022? 

More than likely I will offer more in-person classes, Covid permitting. These classes will cover various subjects, such as reflexology basics for self-healing, qigong and herbal medicine, and theory classes that are topic specific.

Anything else our readers should know? 

It is so critical and essential that the general public embrace the healing power of nature—specifically the plant medicines and healing philosophies that have been practiced over 2,000 to 5,000 years. My mission is to be your guide back to nature.
