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.

Please feel free contact me to make an appointment or to discuss any health concerns in the strictest confidence.
