She additionally espouses the healing properties of therapeutic-grade essentials oils and is an independent wholesaler of Young Living Essential Oils.

When not working to enhance the lives of her clients, Dr. Rosanne Bostonian often travels to her second home in rural Florida, where she enjoys relaxing to the sounds of nature. An avid reader, she also fosters her own spiritual growth by reading top spiritual authors, including Eckhart Tolle, Pema Chodron, and Marianne Williamson.

Foot Reflexology - Pressure Points That Address Body Ailments

Based in New Jersey, Rosanne (Roseanne) Bostonian, PhD, is a Berkeley College adjunct professor of psychology who also maintained a respected private practice over 25 years. In her subsequent healing practice, Rosanne Bostonian, PhD, emphasizes a synergy between essential oils and Reiki and foot reflexology as a way of achieving lasting healing and wellness among patients.

Developed in ancient China and codified around 1,000 BC, reflexology is thought to have come to Europe in the 14th century through a text that Marco Polo translated. The practice became an integral part of US health practice in the early 20th century through the pioneering work of Dr. William H. Fitzgerald, who wrote extensively on vertical zones spanning the body’s length. Through the application of pressure to a zone corresponding to a problem area, he provided relief from pain and malady.

Pressure points on the foot are broadly split between the sides of the body, with those on the right foot corresponding to organs and valves on the body’s right side and visa versa. One example of foot reflexology’s practical use involves applying finger and thumb pressure to the foot arch, which corresponds with the bladder. Issues such as kidney function, headaches, diabetes, and sinus conditions are addressed in a similar manner.
