Herbal Ways is a herbal practice based in the Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire
Hi I am Jessica Lucas. I first became interested in herbal medicine whilst studying massage therapy at Reading college some 26 years ago.
After completing a 3 year IHBC college diploma in beauty therapy, which included a Swedish massage qualification and aromatherapy, I then went on to study herbal medicine.
I studied with the IRCH (International Register of Consultant Herbalists) for over 6 years before receiving their diploma in Botano-therapy. The course was in-depth, covering, Anatomy & Physiology, Naturopathy, Health Psychology, Materia Medica and Herbal Medicine.
As a practitioner of Herbal Medicine, I operate to a strict code of ethics and professional behaviour. All patients are seen in confidence. I treat all of my patients holistically therefore it is essential that I understand your lifestyle and some family background before I prescribe or supply herbal remedies.
The herbal clinic is open from 9am to 5pm, however appointments are available some evenings and weekends
