Renee Lowe:
Owner, Herbalist, Iridologist, Reiki Master

Renee Lowe has her formal degree in Anthropology from Kennesaw State University, but began her career as an Herbalist more than 7 years ago. Having taken supplements and frequented health food stores from childhood, the turn toward alternative health as a career seemed natural to her. After working closely with a long-time friend and fellow Herbalist where she expanded her knowledge-base and received her Iridology training, Renee opened Herbal Intentions in 2005. She then received her formal Reiki training over the following two years and is currently a Reiki Master in the Usui System.A self-professed “geek” in regards to her work, her passion for research and education has led her to incorporate this into the scope of what Herbal Intentions offers to its customers…information and customer service from the heart. Renee is available on-site for herbal questions and consultations as well as for Iridology appointments and Ancestral Health and Wellness consultations. She also currently teaches all levels of the Usui Reiki system and offers session work by appointment. She has experience and a history of public speaking and is available for engagements and workshops on a variety of topics in the herbal and alternative health field by request.
