About Healing Waters Clinic & Herb Shop
Healing Waters Clinic was founded in 1994 by Laurence Layne, LMT, Herbalist, initially as a pain relief center, wholistic massage therapy clinic, and herbal pharmacy. The high quality and reputation of the center attracted other practitioners who asked to be part of the clinic. Because of this, Healing Waters became one of the the more well known multi-disciplinary holistic clinics in Northeast Florida and St. Johns County during the rise of alternative medicine in the 1990s.
Some of the various treatment methods and licenses that have been a part of the clinic over the years include massage therapy, bodywork, nursing, weight loss, medical doctor, acupuncture, nutritionist, chiropractic, speech therapist, energy healing, physical therapy, herbalism, midwife, and hypnosis. See a list of our current Services.
In 2000, Healing Waters Clinic moved from its original location on US 1 North to a new location near the intersection of King St. and US 1 South in historic downtown St. Augustine. Click here to see a map of our location.
The move to a new location brought expansion and new services into the Clinic. A full retail herb shop was added, expanding on the earlier herbal pharmacy. This new addition brought a one-of-a-kind herb dispensary into North Florida that sells bulk Chinese, Ayurvedic and Western herbs to the public. The clinic also stocks a large selection of Chinese patent remedies, liquid herbal extracts, Ayurvedic remedies, natural healing supplies, essential oils, and healing teas.

Over time, the Herb Shop and dispensary have grown and now has the largest selection of herbs in Northeast Florida.
Laurence Layne in his role as an herbalist has designed a number of unique herbal formulas. To set them apart from other remedies sold at the Clinic, the name Paracelsus Herbs was chosen as a brand name to reflect the quality and holistic philosophy behind the products. Paracelsus was a alchemist, philosopher, and medical innovator who lived in Germany in the 16 Century.
The staff at Healing Waters often makes personalized herbal remedies and formulas for our clients based on the traditional healing practices of Chinese Medicine, Ayurveda, and Western herbal traditions such as Physiomedicalism.
The Clinic currently offers a wide variety of manual therapy techniques including massage, myofascial release, and osteopathy. Some of the allied natural healing methods offered include hydrotherapy, movement therapy, Chinese "barefoot" techniques, and energy healing. More about osteopathy.
