Rexanne began her work in the holistic field at the age of 27, motivated by her need to address her own health in a more gentle, practical way. She started with the study of yoga, which lead to meditation. That quickly opened up her interest in Ayurveda, and she began a 750-hour program in Northern California that included a supervised internship.

Upon graduation, she interned with practitioner David Crow in Los Angeles. From there she co-founded and launched Floracopeia, an essential oil/aromatherapy supply company (, working closely with David to educate the public about aromatherapy through the medium of essential oils and the lenses of Ayurveda, Chinese medicine, and the five elements.

The next step in her path was moving to India to attend a Siddha Vaidya clinic. There, she received treatments and began a hands-on traditional internship with the 9th Generation Siddha Vaidya doctor, Reghu Harichandran. This included daily lessons from the palm leaves of the Siddha Vaidya tradition, learning traditional body therapies, and making traditional medicines over live fire. She also worked in the Siddha Vaidya Longevity Clinic administering treatments and making medicines for patients.

Currently, Rexanne has an active practice in Nevada City, California and is the creator and founder of Aroma Herbals. She's worked in the holistic healthcare arena for more than 15 years as an Ayurvedic and Siddha Vaidya practitioner, specializing in Aromatherapy and Kaya Regeneration Therapy. Rexanne’s training in India forms the core of her work with clients, which is enhanced by the Ayurvedic training she received from such lauded teachers as Dr. Sarita Shrestha and Dr. Vasant Lad. She draws from a wealth of knowledge and experience in both Western and Eastern healing traditions, synthesizing all aspects of her training to offer clients a uniquely integrated healthcare approach perfectly suited to today’s high-stress culture.

At her core, Rexanne believes that living with attention to one's own circadian rhythms and in harmony with the planet's rhythms is the best way to regain balance in one’s life. Healing starts with lifestyle, diet, proper herbs, treatments, and rest.

Using the five-element theory as a lens for understanding a body’s ailments and drawing on the wisdom of plants and the strong lineage of her teachers, Rexanne works with clients on a variety of levels. She combines powerful bodywork techniques, blended essential oils, and herbal preparations with everyday lifestyle suggestions to help you achieve optimal wellness and vitality.
