By D.S. Braun - Certified Aromatherapist, Certified Reflexologist


In the holistic health care field many healing modalities have become the subject of interest and study for healthcare providers, holistic practitioners and the general populace alike. Many are finding that the combination of two or more therapies brings quicker, more complete relief from physical, emotional, spiritual and mental maladies than does one modality alone. For the purposes of this discussion, I am going to focus on the practice of using Aromatherapy to complement and enhance the benefits of Reflexology.

Many people are aware of the positive aspects of Reflexology. Stress release, total relaxation, and relief from chronic complaints are some areas that this treatment targets. Now, imagine using essential oils to complement the above effects. By combining the healing properties of Aromatherapy with the calming touch of Reflexology, clients undergo a complete holistic experience.

From a health heart to a good sex life, the proper flow and Circulation of blood in our arteries is one of the most important things we can do to maintain good health and push back the aging process.

There is a common denominator between good arterial health and disorders such as Heart Attack, obesity, Diabetes and high glucose levels, as well as sexual health. That common denominator is blood.

One of the single most preventatives is a proper diet. Because diet strongly influences weight, sex hormone production, including testosterone, the health of our arteries and its flow, it is important to cut back on excess meat consumption, full fat, dairy products and a lack of vegetables and fruits in the diet.

Herbal Medicine is a wonderful preventative solution. Complications can arise when taking Herbal Medicine and allopathic drugs your doctor has prescribed. Great caution should be used especially if you are on blood thinners, diuretics or any other heart related medication. Consult your doctor with any questions you may have, before taking additional Herbs or Supplements.
