Amy Kreydin grew up in the Sangre de Cristo mountains North of Taos, New Mexico. At an early age she was interested in botanical medicine and holistic concepts of wellness and healing – her early mentors included midwives, curanderas, western herbalists, and Native American healers.
Amy earned her certificate as a Certified Reflexologist from the Palmer Institute of Massage & Bodywork in Salem, Massachusetts in June 2004. She was awarded her board certificate in Reflexology from the American Reflexology Certification Board after sitting for their written and practical testing in New York, New York in June 2006. Amy earned her certificate as a Certified Clinical Aromatherapy Practitioner from R.J. Buckle Associates at Boston Medical Center in March, 2011.
Amy ran a full-time clinical practice in the North Boston suburbs for 9 years before relocating to Austin in May 2013 with her husband, two cats, two goldfish, and a snail, to enjoy a warmer climate and be closer to her family in New Mexico.
Amy has continuously run a full-time practice since graduating from Reflexology school in 2004, seeing thousands of clients in her clinic and going on out-calls to clients in hospitals. She is also an instructor in Reflexology and Aromatherapy with offerings at her studio-classroom and community events for both the layperson and the practitioner.
You do not have to be sick or unwell to enjoy the benefits of Aromatherapy and Reflexology. Amy has taken additional training and research to especially support clients in the following life stages:
- Pediatrics – newborns through adolescents.
- The Childbearing Year – from fertility through postpartum.
- Chronic Dis-ease – pain, insomnia, arthritis, autoimmune, diabetes, hypertension.
- Women’s Health – menstrual and hormonal balancing, menopause, weight management.
When not in the treatment room or classroom Amy enjoys baking, knitting, bicycling, gardening, paddleboarding, reading, and the great outdoors. You might spot her bird watching on Lady Bird Lake, or on her bicycle in the Northwest Austin hills!
