ArborVitae Student Community Herb Clinic
Our community herb clinic is open to anyone interested in a private health consultation with one of our 3rd year clinical students. Student herbal clinicians work under the supervision of ArborVitae faculty practitioners.
We practice from a holistic approach to healing and general well-being that seeks balance in all aspects of the individual, including food, lifestyle, and spirit.
ArborVitae clinic sessions
are now free!
ArborVitae offers the herbal clinic as a community service and there is no charge for the session. If one benefits from the service and is able, we ask for a donation that goes towards our scholarship fund, aiding students in need to continue their herbal education.

What to Expect
During the 1 1/2 hour session, you will meet with one student practitioner in a private space. 1-2 additional student(s) practitioners, or 3-4 in some special sessions, may be observing your session.
Clients will receive personalized herb, diet and lifestyle recommendations that can best support one’s health.
ArborVitae does not currently have an in-school apothecary however we do provide you with a list of local herb stores where you can purchase herbs recommended to you, many of which offer ArborVitae clinic participants a discount on herbs and herbal products.
Scheduling an Appointment
Please note that appointments are required. Session availability is limited in number, and offered on a first come, first served basis.
When requesting an appointment, please make sure that you can truly commit to attending the appointment for that particular date and time. Our student clinicians prepare for your appointment in advance, so last-minute cancellations are disruptive to our clinic and prevent others from seeing our herbal clinicians.
If an emergency comes up and you can not make your appointment, please call and email us as soon as possible. We often have have a wait list for clinic sessions, and if we have enough notice, we may be able to offer that time to another. If you cancel last minute, you will not be able to reschedule your appointment. Thank you in advance for understanding this!
We ask that clients to be willing to return for 1-2 follow-up clinic sessions (within 1-3 months of the original session), so that we can best support your health and adjust your herbal protocol as needed.
