Lauren Schoch works as an herbalist, reiki practitioner, chef and IIN health coach. Her journey began over seven years ago with Green Medicine training in herbalism with Peeka Trenkle followed by her apprenticeship with mentor Robin Rose Bennett. Thirsting for more wisdom in the wellness field, she completed a year long program with the Institute for Integrative Nutrition becoming a certified health coach. She also studied the Japanese natural healing system, Reiki, with Joanna Crespo at the New York Open Center and Darah Salamagi at Wellness and Reiki

Lauren passionately combines these healing modalities to inspire, empower and guide her clients to discover root causes, eliminate symptoms and to become their own healers by placing great emphasis on reconnecting to nature and ourselves as a way to invite balance back into our lives.

Typical sessions with me include a combination of intuitive listening, herbal care, reiki, breath work, meditation, journaling, ideas for nurturing self-care rituals and nourishing foods that are just right for unique you.

“As an herbalist, reiki master teacher, gardener, chef and earth dwelling human, I have ambitious aspirations to change our collective mindset in regard to the natural world from one of separateness and superiority to one of belonging, cooperation, and reverence. I believe to rekindle an understanding of our symbiotic relationship is to heal the earth as well as ourselves.”
