Castle Remedies works with practitioners in our building, the Parkway Center, as well as practitioners in all of southeast Michigan and beyond. Castle Remedies does not have healthcare practitioners on staff, but we can certainly refer you to ones in the Ann Arbor area. If you live elsewhere, we can direct you to resources that can help you find a holistic healthcare practitioner in your area.
We fill prescriptions from local, national and international practitioners. Prescriptions may be submitted by e-mail, (firstname.lastname@example.org), over the phone (734-973-8990), fax (734-973-0316) or by mail (2345 S. Huron Pkwy, Ann Arbor, MI 48104). Practitioners will need to submit an application and be approved before we can dispense prescription-only remedies on their behalf.
At Castle Remedies, we have a small and close-knit staff. Our values include treating each other with respect and kindness while working together in harmony to best serve you! We are united by a love for animals and an interest in holistic medicine.
Caitlin has enjoyed working at Castle Remedies since 2012. She is passionate about herbs and is a graduate of David Winston's Center for Herbal Studies, the Gaia Center of Ann Arbor, and has also studied with herbalist Jim McDonald. Caitlin teaches the Introduction to Homeopathy Class at Castle Remedies and is currently working on expanding class offerings to include herbs and flower essences. She enjoys gardening, cooking, and reading; the latter usually with a lap cat or two. She is also a volunteer coordinator of the annual Great Lakes Herb Faire. Caitlin is a big fan of community gardening and has been involved with Project Grow since moving to Ann Arbor in 2011.
Karen began working at Castle Remedies in 2014. She is one of our two buyers and is also in charge of keeping our homeopathic pharmacy stocked. She fields requests for rare and unusual remedies, researches availability, and makes the connection happen. You can rest easy in her care! She enjoys coffee, crossword puzzles, and spending time with family. Karen has an adorable pet turtle named Merlin and maintains a live "turtle cam" which provides constant entertainment for the staff. Merlin loves swimming and basking under her heat lamp. Merlin does not enjoy being picked up or otherwise bothered.
Taj started working at Castle Remedies early in 2017. She is our second buyer and works diligently to keep your favorite products in stock, including our fabulous gifts and jewelry. She has excellent taste in many things, including picking out the coolest, prettiest, and most elegant gifts and jewelry. Taj enjoys watching comedy shows, spending time with her family, listening to music, and daydreaming about taking naps (she never actually has time to nap, though). She is pictured with her dog Kermit, whose hobbies include eating things that he really shouldn't be eating, and mediating disputes between the two cats he lives with: Squeakers and Edward.
Natalie is an Ann Arbor native who joined our team early on in 2020. She is a jack of all trades, helping to answer the phone, receive shipments, process orders, and stock the pharmacy. She is especially good at arranging the jewelry cases in a dazzling fashion. She is a writer and also has a great sense of humor. Natalie enjoys hiking, reading graphic novels (especially the horror genre), gardening, and expanding her collection of house plants. She's pictured with her parents' dog Flo, but actually lives with her two cats Ruki and Reya.
In her free time, Hannah enjoys taking long, relaxing baths and experimenting with new spa and beauty products from Castle Remedies. Her most recent favorite find is the Weleda Arnica Muscle Soak. She has a great love for dachshunds (and it runs in the family – there are four in her family, including Hannah’s dog Winifred). She can often be found lounging in between trees in her hammock, or looking for cool rocks around her favorite spots surrounding Lake Michigan. Hannah also enjoys cooking fun new recipes with her amazing sous chef / husband.
