About Grace

Hi, I’m Grace, a Face Reflexologist and Certified Clinical Aromatherapist based in California. I understand what you’re going through…I know what it feels like to be frustrated, self-conscious, and not be able to leave the house without wearing makeup.

How I Got Here

I spent years “believing” the hype of large cosmetics companies that their skincare products can keep my skin looking smooth, hydrated, and youthful.

My struggle with aging skin didn’t stop at expensive commercial products. The toxic chemicals and fragrances built up in my liver. My digestive and immune systems started to become affected. It wreaked havoc on my hormonal production. And subsequently, it made my skin more dry, wrinkled, and prematurely aged.

Finally realizing the terrible effects of commercial skincare and makeup products on my health, I ditched it all and researched many alternatives.  

It was not an easy task.  

Even in the realm of natural organic skincare and makeup, there’s no guarantee that products are clean and free of toxins.

I believe looking and feeling good, and supporting a graceful aging journey,  shouldn’t be difficult, costly, or time-consuming.

I didn’t give up, I was determined to support my graceful aging journey.

It was during my search for more natural, healing products that I heard about Aromatherapy and Face Reflexology. 

Seeing how vast and encompassing Aromatherapy and Face Reflexology could be for internal and external health, I pursued certifications in both areas.

Some of my Face Reflexology certifications and diplomas are for autoimmune diseases, like Rheumatoid Arthritis, Eczema, Rosacea, and many more.

Clinical Aromatherapy
& Face Reflexology

Clinical Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy is a holistic approach to healing using pure essential oils.

Clinical Aromatherapy utilizes the chemical components of essential oils to promote the management of emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being.

After becoming a California-based Clinical Aromatherapist, I began researching several essential oil companies. doTERRA is the company that resonated with me and the quality that I sought after.

Face Reflexology

Face reflexology (or face stimulation) is a means of “waking up” the reflex points on the face connected to internal organs.

Face reflexology is a natural, noninvasive, method used for healing medical issues in China, Vietnam, and Europe.

As a California-based Face Reflexologist, I love creating face reflex points for individuals all over the country. Face Reflexology can be performed with me in-person, or virtually anywhere in the world.

How I Can Help

As a Certified Clinical Aromatherapist, Certified AromaDermatologist, and Face Reflexologist based in California, I have the tools and resources to help restore health and, ultimately, appearance.

Whether in-person or virtually, I create aromatherapy blends to rejuvenate and hydrate skin, and face reflexology points to address internal and emotional issues.   

Pain is inevitable, but misery is optional!   

My success in restoring my own health after the ravages of grief gave birth to my AromaReflex Healing™ method.

AromaReflex Healing™ is a combination of Aromatherapy and Face Reflexology to create a skin care plan custom to the individual.  I don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all solution.  We are all created differently and internal causes differ from one person to the next and so do solutions!

If you are suffering the effects of grief and trauma from any type of loss, I can help you.

If you are struggling with flare-ups from Rosacea or Eczema and are tired of it getting in the way of your social, work, and home life, I can help you.

If you just want to rejuvenate and restore your youthful looks by reducing wrinkles and dark spots, I can help you!

My focus today as a skin care expert is to encourage and assure women that solutions are available, within reach, and within their very own hands.  The biggest benefit of what I offer is the re-strengthening of the physical, emotional, and spiritual foundations.

 More Of My Story 

I’m surprised by what we women are willing to go through and spend to achieve younger-looking skin. The desire to feel more confident in our appearance pushes us to willingly put up with side effects from toxic chemicals. Why does it have to be so difficult?

I have helped 100s of women just like you overcome acne scarring, dark spots, fine lines, and wrinkles and achieve beautiful looking skin.

As a busy professional, I was overworked, exhausted, stressed out, over-committed, and time deficient. In my youth, I spent a lot of money on expensive commercial products that I thought would help me get rid of acne, brown spots, and wrinkles on my face. Boy was I wrong! These were “bandaids” that had temporary benefits and long-term side effects on my overall health.

I gained weight and could not lose it even when I starved myself and exercised like crazy. I slept poorly and my face just broke out. I felt old and looked old!

One day I got diagnosed with three thyroid tumors. This news made me pay very close attention. Cancer? Yikes!

It was this that drove me to seek natural and therapeutic products, solutions, and services for healing, beauty, wellness, and lifestyle. I was scared, to say the least.

I incorporated changes in my routine starting with the products I used. I also learned different ways to relax and find time to “self-care”, from going to the gym, getting regular chiropractic adjustments, reflexology sessions, and acupuncture treatments. Within weeks I noticed that I felt better, less stressed, sleeping more soundly, and I finally started to lose the unwanted weight. The biggest payoff was my face. My skin looked more hydrated and brighter. I started getting compliments about how young I look. People would be surprised to find out my age.

It was this that prompted me to share my knowledge and personal experience. I became a Certified Clinical Aromatherapist and a Certified Facial Reflexologist because I wanted to really learn how to help women who are going through the same frustrations as I did.

 Then My World Turned Upside Down 

In September 2021, I lost my husband, Doug, and my daughter, Joanne, four days apart.

Needless to say, I was devastated and grief struck me to the core. I felt like someone was tearing me apart, limb by limb and cutting me open with a dull knife and removing each organ in my body slowly, meticulously yet violently. The pain in my chest was severe, it felt like this dull knife was stabbing my heart to pieces over and over.

I had no idea what the pain, the grief and the devastation would do to my body, my health, my mental capacity.

The pain was excruciating.

I lost 20+ lbs. I looked and felt horrible. Sagging jowls, wrinkled skin…I had aged at least 10 years! The loss of Doug and Joanne 4 days apart was more than I could bear, and it showed big time.

Seeing myself in the mirror scared me. I had to turn my attention back to my health. The grief caused havoc to my internal organs from lack of proper nutrition, hydration, extreme stress, lack of sleep, and consistent emotional distress. I knew I was in trouble. Unless my internal and emotional issues are attended to first, anything I do externally will be temporary and may even be ineffective.
