Wellness Movement

Ange Palmer

Clinical Medical Herbalist
Co-founder of Wellness Movement
A Brief Introduction

I have resumed private practice and am available now for in person or online consultations. Appointments can be made via an email request.

I gained my Diploma in Clinical Herbal Medicine in 2002 from The Canterbury College of Natural Medicine after 3 years of fulltime study. I have also trained in Natural Fertility Management and have worked extensively with reproductive health issues, endocrine and digestive disorders, and fatigue. I'm passionate about plant medicine.

I have always had a strong connection to nature. As a young St John Ambulance cadet I spent weekends assisting in rest homes with elders, and I remember visiting the Weleda medicinal gardens and being enthralled by the scent of lemon balm as we walked through a huge patch of the vibrant herb. I did my last year of high school in Indonesia and at 21 worked on an ethnobotanical research expedition in the Sumatran rainforest witnessing indigenous people who totally depended on the plants for their healthcare. I was in awe of their integration with their environs.

Motherhood inspired me to learn more about wellbeing within a natural context – homeopathy, yoga, whole foods and herbs became a part of everyday life. I founded Moontime Aotearoa, an enterprise offering washable menstrual cloths in the early nineties (no longer my business), and have a long involvement in environmental activities. Co-producing 2 Degrees, a feature documentary about climate justice released in 2013, added to my insight and skills. In 2016 I completed a three year, advanced 2000 hour Compassionate Practitioner training in Ashtanga Yoga with senior teacher Dena Kingsberg and this is now foundational in my life and work.

I help care for native bush sanctuary in the Pelorus Valley and love to ride horses in the mountains. I'm also very keen on cows and sea turtles.

Currently I also work as a health care assistant at Nelson Hospital, mostly in the emergency department.

Please contact me via email to make an appointment.
An indication of your preferred time of day is useful however I am currently only consulting every second week for limited hours due to my hospital shift work.

My consults are held in 'The Wellness Workshop' which is a new co-working clinic upstairs at Miki D's NEW gym, the black and yellow building next to Kathmandu and Macpac at 22 Achilles Ave, Wakatu Square, central Nelson. Please wait on the seats on the right at the top of the stairs and I will come and meet you.

With resuming my practice I am wanting to align with a future financial model that is about access, empowerment and evaluation so fees are on a sliding scale. New clients suggested fee is $80-$150 for up to 90 minutes, and follow up fee guideline is $50 - $100 for up to 45 minutes. However I'd like you to pay the amount that is the right amount for you. If your financial means are limited, then you can choose a token amount or even zero. That makes this accessible to everyone.

I welcome everyone regardless of ability to pay. Regardless of the amount you choose, you will have the same focus and care from me as everyone else. My offering is my commitment to fully engaging in your health process. Your contributions will support me to offer my service on an ongoing basis. I will offer an evaluation option at the close of the consultation process.
