Ray Edwards uses medicinal foods and plants to bring clients’ bodies and minds into balance. She employs allopathic and alternative diagnostic techniques, and explains to clients exactly what she sees as their bodies’ strengths and weaknesses. Ray believes that a person can know more about their own body than anyone else can (including healthcare practitioners), so she works closely with clients to co-create their treatment plans.
Treatment usually takes place over several months. Generally, clients meet with Ray on a monthly basis. After each session they are given herbal medicine that is custom formulated to address their evolving individual health needs.
Herbs usually come in the form of high-quality teas or tincture from Ray’s personal apothecary of over 400 herbal extracts. She uses plants from all over the world, all of which are sustainably sourced and either wild-harvested or organically grown. Extraction solutions are always organic, vegan, gluten-free, and free of any artificial preservatives or additives.
A large part of Ray’s practice is ensuring that herbal medicine is affordable and available to as many people as possible. Intake sessions cost between $75 and $125 on a sliding scale, with follow up sessions at $50-$100. Herbal supplements are provided to clients at cost of production.
Ray has an office in Needham, MA and another in the Bushwick area of Brooklyn, NY. For those living locally, she loves working with clients in person. Ray also maintains a clientele situated all around the country, largely using telephone and videochat to communicate. Medicine comes to clients via postal mail.
