Reflexology, also known as zone therapy, is an alternative to medicine to stimulate organ function.
Dr. B.’s Reflexology Plus
This type of reflexology uses oils, and cupping on the hands and feet and where the energy meridians of the body all meet.
Reflexology is both an art and a science – a method of activating the healing powers of the body. It is both new and old originating in Egypt around 2330BC. Reflexology enervates the 7000+ nerve endings in each foot, and nerve endings in the ear, hands, face and back that correspond to organs and tissues in other locations of the body. By the physical application of specific pressures using thumb, finger, and hand techniques stress reduction is achieved thereby engaging the healing powers of the body. We incorporate reflexology plus with medical grade essential oils and cupping.
What does reflexology do?
- Reflexology promotes balance of the body in a non-invasive natural way;
- Reflexology reduces stress and brings about relaxation; and
- Reflexology assists improvement of circulation and the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the cells via stress reducing.

Raindrop Sessions incorporate foot reflexology techniques with a technique developed in Tibet called Vitaflex and Medical-Grade Essential Oils. We use both techniques for the Raindrop Sessions.
The most common responses are better sleeping, and an extended state of relaxation which is cumulative, calm, energized and rejuvenated.
However, it is important to know that when the body is subjected to the powerful and sometimes immediate effects of homeostasis (balance) brought on by body work or other forms of health inducing aids, a healing crisis may occur.
In such cases, a healing crisis is experienced as an unpleasant reaction in an effort to re-establishing balance and normalize natural functions. Remember, you will usually feel worse before you feel better – this is the way of natural healing and that lets you know it is working. Here are some discomforts you may experience which can last 24 – 36 hours: headaches, queasiness / feeling faint, dizzy or nauseous, frequent urination, urine may be darker, cloudy and strong smelling for a short time, increase in number of bowel movements, flatulence or diarrhea, heightened skin activity, increased mucus discharge, from the nose, clogged sinuses, and an increase in vaginal discharges may occur in women.
There may be emotional or psychological releases such as crying, laughing, temporary depression; anxiety may result as stress and tension are released from the nervous system; suppressed or incomplete healed illnesses may temporarily flare-up resulting in feverishness or aches and pains.
For easing physical symptoms, many clients have found it valuable to increase their water intake (take your weight and divide it by 2 and that number is the number of ounces of water needed per day as normal intake – increase by 16 – 32 ounces when having body work done). And or the juice of a whole lemon added to 14 ounces of warm water (120- 130 Degrees) in addition to the increased water intake has been used to provide increased health benefits and reduce the stress of the healing crisis.

ESSENTIAL OILS AS AN ANTI-AGING SUBSTANCE The fragrance of an essential oil can directly affect everything from your emotional state to your life span.
When a fragrance is inhaled, the odor molecules travel up the nose where they are trapped by olfactory membranes. Each odor molecule fits like a little puzzle piece into specific receptor cell sites. Each one of these hundreds of millions of nerve cells is replaced every 28 days. When stimulated by odor molecules, this lining of nerve cells triggers electrical impulses to the olfactory bulb in the brain. The olfactory bulb then transmits the impulses to the gustatory center (where the sensation of taste is perceived), the amygdala (where emotional memories are stored), and other parts of the limbic system of the brain. Because the limbic system is directly connected to those parts of the brain that control heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, memory, stress levels, and hormone balance, essential oils can have profound physiological and psychological effects.
The limbic lobe can also directly activate the hypothalamus. The hypothalamus is one of the most important parts of the brain, acting as our hormonal control center. It releases chemical messengers that can affect everything from sex drive to energy levels. The production of growth hormones, sex hormones, thyroid hormones, and neurotransmitters, like serotonin, are all governed by the hypothalamus. Thus the hypothalamus is referred to as the “master gland.”
Essential oils—through their fragrance and unique molecular structure—can directly stimulate the limbic lobe and the hypothalamus. Thus exerting a profound effect on body and mind. Not only can inhalation of essential oils be used to combat stress and emotional trauma, but they can also stimulate the production of hormones from the hypothalamus. This results in increased thyroid hormones (our energy hormone) and growth hormones (our youth and longevity hormone).
Essential oils may also be used to reduce appetite and produce dramatic reductions in weight because of their ability to stimulate a section of the brain that governs our feeling of satiety or fullness following meals. In a large clinical study, Alan Hirsch, M.D., used fragrances, including peppermint, to trigger significant weight losses in a large group of patients who had previously been unsuccessful in any type of weight-management program. During the course of the six-month study involving over 3,000 people, the average weight loss exceeded 30 pounds. According to Dr. Hirsch, some patients actually had to be dropped from the study to avoid becoming underweight.
Another double-blind, randomized study by Hirsch documents the ability of aroma to enhance libido and sexual arousal. When 31 male volunteers were subjected to the aromas of 30 different essential oils, each one exhibited a marked increase in arousal, based on measurements of brachial penile index and the measurement of both penile and brachial blood pressures. Among the scents that produced the most sexual excitement, was a combination of lavender and pumpkin fragrances. This study shows that fragrances enhance sexual desire by stimulating the amygdala, the emotional center of the brain.
Dr. BZRANI-JORDAN, D.N. has found that a few drops of Citrus Fresh on the tongue before sexual intimacy stimulates the sexual desire.
In 1989, Dr. Joseph Ledoux, New York Medical University, discovered that the amygdala plays a major role in storing and releasing emotional trauma.
In studies conducted at Vienna and Berlin Universities, researchers found that sesquiterpenes, found in essential oils such as vetiver, patchouly, cedarwood, sandalwood and frankincense can increase levels of oxygen in the brain by up to 28 percent (Nasel, 1992). Such an increase in brain oxygen may lead to a heightened level of activity in the hypothalamus and limbic systems of the brain, which can have dramatic effects on not only emotions, learning, and attitude, but also many physical processes of the body, such as immune function, hormone balance, and energy levels. High levels of sesquiterpenes also occur in Melissa, myrrh, cedarwood, and clove oil.
People who have undergone nose surgery or suffer olfactory impairment may find it difficult or impossible to detect a complete odor. The same is true of people who use commercial cosmetics, even many of those labeled ‘natural’. For these people, full physiological and emotional benefits of essential oils and their fragrances is a recovery process while using the oils.
Proper stimulation of the olfactory nerves may offer a powerful tool, as it did the ancient Egyptians and others, as defense and remedy for illness. Essential oils, through inhalation, may occupy a key position in this relatively unexplored frontier in medicine. When applied to the body and or ingested, they provide a much more rapid response to healing. By the use of reflexology, I have seen people regain their physique, strength, endurance, mobility, flexibility, shining and more hair, improved humor, improve physical appearance losing about 10 – 15 years of wear and tear off their face.
