On top of developing a range of natural products across the health spectrum, our team of medical herbalists are also available for one-to-one consultations.
We offer two types of consultation. First is the Natural Health Consultation, an hour-long dive into your health and wellbeing. Second is the Express Consultation, which lasts for half an hour and is a great introduction to the world of natural health.
Both consultations give you a chance to explore your health concerns with a medical professional. You’ll receive a prescription made for you and your constitution and ongoing support.

Why it’s the perfect time to have a health consultation with Zen Maitri
After a needed break over Christmas and some time for rest and reflection, most of us feel motivated to make positive changes as we begin the New Year.
Christmas 2020 (and all of 2020 for that matter) took a darker turn and the start 2021 might not have come with the bounce that you’re used to.
We know the feeling. But this is a new year, a new decade, and a new start. Which is why we believe it’s more important than ever to assess your health and wellbeing.
2021 can be the year that you rediscover your balance and start feeling better. Physically, mentally, and emotionally.
It can be challenging to know where to look and who to trust when it comes to health and wellbeing advice.
A health consultation with a qualified Medical Herbalist is a great place to start. A member of the Zen Maitri team can help you:
- Understand your unique constitution better
- Learn how to maintain a state of balanced health throughout the seasons
- Manage a specific health concern
A consultation with a Medical Herbalist can be empowering, helping you to take control of your health and wellbeing and look at the problems you face from a holistic perspective.
What does doing a health consultation involve?
During a consultation, a Medical Herbalist will ask questions about your health, diet and lifestyle to better understand the factors contributing to your current condition or symptoms.
They will examine and your medical history, listen to your current concerns and prescribe a bespoke blend of herb alongside dietary and lifestyle advice - all according to your symptoms and constitution.
Medical herbalists can assist clients in managing a wide range of conditions.
Why have a health consultation?
Health consultations result in two things. First, a bespoke prescription to target your concerns. This could be a herbal tea, tincture, oil, or supplement course.
Second, our consultations give you a chance to reflect on your health and start taking it more seriously. Taking care of ourselves has never been so important. Yet it’s something we all struggle with. A health consultation with a Medical Herbalist will give you the space, time and confidence to consider the bigger picture.
Everyone is different. We all have unique constitutions and live in different environments. Some of us work all day at our desks, while others work in environments that demand much more physical labour.
As a result, a one-size-fits-all approach to health can’t account for our individual differences. The diagnostic approach of a Medical Herbalist is person-centric, which means that any advice or prescription they advise will be tailored according to your specific constitution, health goals and lifestyle.
Attending to your health and wellbeing should never be a one-off. Rather, it should be a life-long process - a journey.
A health consultation with a Medical Herbalist marks the first step in your natural health journey. One in which you are taking the lead and empowering yourself to learn more about your own body and mind. A Medical Herbalist is there to guide you.
