Angie Barger

Clinical Herbalist

I am a matchmaker between each person with whom I work and the plants. I witness and advocate for your healing process and mind~body~spirit evolution.
 
The herbalist uses tools rooted in ancient medical practice, when all medicine was primarily whole plant ingredients made into teas, stews foot baths and soups. These practices come from a time when the herbalist was consulted in order to stay well - instead of primarily treating symptoms of emerging illness.  
When we heal with herbal medicine, our bodies resonate with the innate and natural earth wisdom that preceded the existence of humans for billions of years. Our existence roots deeply in the life force of the earth's gifts. Healing is our birthright. 

Hi, I’m Angie. 

 

I am a community based clinical herbalist living on Abenaki land in Central Vermont.  I bring 10 years of clinical practice in herbal medicine, a practice of Somatic Mindfulness and Energy Movement Work since 2014, and in 2017 I founded The Tea Project to bring mindfulness and herbal tea to the public school daily routine. When we work together to address your health goals, I combine herbal medicine, somatic therapy, healing touch, and nutrition.

 

I am devoted to individualized and effective care for healing issues of the mind-spirit-body.

 

When we work together, we can address: 

stress management

emotional stability

healing from trauma

chronic illness

autoimmune disease 

food and seasonal allergy 

gut health issues 

mental health healing 

womxn's regenerative and reproductive issues 

and more. 

 

I believe each person is the doorway to a path of vibrant health, resilience, and comfort in their body. I support this discovery in each client. It is our birthright to grow and make the medicine that helps us each, and our families to heal. In this light, I am a committed educator. 

 

As a matchmaker between the plants and you,  I witness and advocate for your healing process and mind~body~spirit evolution. My tools include the most simple, formative practices: teas & tinctures, stews, foot baths and soups, listening, affirmation, prayer, intention, and presence. I accompany clients in noticing how the body speaks and what it says. Presence is the keystone of my herbal practice. These tools root themselves in the belief that the herbalist is consulted to support the client’s foundation of well-being - instead of symptomatically treating emerging or chronic illness. 

 
When we heal with herbal medicine, our bodies resonate with the innate and natural earth wisdom that preceded the existence of humans for billions of years. Our existence roots deeply in the life force of the earth's gifts. Healing is our birthright. 

Angie is one of the sweetest, gentlest souls that I know. She has helped me to release trauma and sorrow from my heart. Each time we work together, I leave feeling happier,more open, and optimistic. She is so patient, never rushing me, while holding a powerful space for our work.

Angie is extremely gifted.

TESTIMONIALS

Angie's powerful presence, patience, wisdom and humor supported me in my work as a mother of a new baby.

She was very respectful of the place where I was

and helped me to move forward in the best way for me.

I am grateful for her!

I've been working with Angie for over a year now.  She has brought wellness and healing to my heart and body.  Her listening skills are amazing.  She has a way of hearing me, and then summarizing how the events in my life are affecting my body, or how my body is affecting my participation in life. 

I'm so grateful I found Angie and continue to have the opportunity to work with her on this path of personal wellness and understanding.

Angie has shared her expertise about nutrition, herbs, and eating whole foods to help with inflammation and overall health.  She is kind, supportive and extremely knowledgeable. 

Angie listens and makes you feel cared for.

                                    

I felt heard in a trans personal soul way.

That’s always the best listening and reflects

courage and honesty in the practitioner.
