Hi, I’m Lauren Keizer-Gilbert. Welcome to the site and practice of Falcon Rose Holistic Health.
As a certified clinical aromatherapist, I offer massage therapy, lymphatic drainage and reflexology combined with aromatherapy. I also offer coaching and new perspectives on viewing your life from a holistic point of view.
After experiencing my own difficulties with stress as well as physical injuries and disease, I left my job in classical publishing in 2010 and started a process of finding a different approach to health and wellness.
Spending time in nature and working with more natural remedies such herbs, essential oils and flower essences has been a critical piece to my well-being and discovering how I can feel well. Coming home to my own body through massage, physical therapy and outdoor sports was the next piece that brought many things together and helped to complete the picture.
Fundamental to my experience has been the freedom to express myself, learn, create and share with the world around me. I am an avid reader of mythology, philosophy and esotericism as experienced through nature. I have an especial fascinating with the ancient world and how classical concepts around health and healing are still speaking to us today.
In 2016 I began a formal study of clinical aromatherapy certified by the International Federation Of Clinical Aromatherapists. I trained under therapist and teacher, Anita James, based in the United Kingdom and in the English style. This is an evidenced-based study which encompasses three years of training on subjects such as botany, the chemistry of essential oils, history and folklore of plant remedies and human anatomy and physiology. I completed research during my study on the use of Cannabis sativa as a topical pain reliever when combined with essential oils which was published in the spring 2020 issue of the journal In Essence.
Nature speaks to us at every opportunity, inviting us to live with more awareness and sensory pleasure in our lives. It’s my sincere wish to share and inspire you to find your own relationship with nature and plant therapies through Falcon Rose.
