Welcome to Long Spell, herbalist Gina Badger’s clinical practice. Currently accepting new clients for ongoing and acute herbal support.
Energetic clinical herbalism is a healing modality that promotes wellbeing through the use of whole-plant medicines. It attends to patterns that connect the physical, emotional, spiritual, social, and environmental elements of our experience.
My approach to health care is grounded in a belief in the resilience of individuals and communities. I support my clients to achieve the health goals we set out together, drawing on whole-plant medicines like teas and tinctures, as well as everyday rituals.
I hold a certificate in energetic clinical herbalism from the Blue Otter School of Herbal Medicine, and I completed clinical training at the Wellness Centre of the BC Compassion Club.
I was initially drawn to working with Gina because I value her intersectional liberation-focused politics,
and I continue to work with her because of her nurturing patience with my layered health issues.
Working with Gina allows me to keep a sense of agency within my changing body.
Regaining things like a full night’s sleep, a sense of calmness, and even self-worth, are my big victories.
Gina is respectful, caring, and efficient
She understands how confusing and frightening it can be to be sick and she worked as a team member with me, striving to come up with a treatment plan that would work well for me.
