I’ve been a fan of Amy Kreydin of The Barefoot Dragonfly since the first time I met her. She’s highly educated and has a very sensible and safe approach to aromatherapy. Amy also does great work as a reflexologist, helping ease the pain in my feet in a way that no other practitioner has. She does phone consults for aromatherapy, so she’s an option for those who don’t live locally.
Amy is a terrific reflexologist. I’ve been searching for a true reflexologist for a while now as there aren’t many around. I found her and plan on doing monthly sessions with her. Her space is tranquil and her techniques are flawless. The chair she has you sit in just surrounds your body and she can even provide a blanket for cozy comfort. Amy really takes the time to listen to how I am feeling and give me a treatment that fits my needs. I highly recommend The Barefoot Dragonfly.
If I had the option to give more stars I would. I have searched for YEARS for a natural and gentle way to help ease my monthly cronic migraine symptoms. I have tried other body modalities such as acupuncture, cupping, massage therapy, physical therapy and chiropractics. I started reflexology 6 months ago, I see Amy one to two times a month. I did not review before today as I wanted to give a review based on my commitment over the last 7 months. While each reflexology session has brought me a deeper relaxtion then I have ever had, last month my migraine cluster went from 4 to 5 day to 2. This month to 3. If you experience the nuerologic disorder of migraines you know this is huge. Each time I have a migraine it debilatates me and even days after my thought processes are slow and retention diffacult. Starting reflexology has eased my symptoms, helped me relax and opened my eyes to how important self care is. Amy is a TRUE healer you are so fortunate to have found her, book now, you will not regret it.
Amy is extremely well-respected in the aromatherapy profession and I’ve learned much from her blogs, books and webinars. I refer my customers and clients to her whenever they need advanced aromatic consultation that is beyond my scope. Highly recommend.
There are no words which can adequately convey my wonderful experience during my sessions with Amy. She is absolutely Magical, and her touch has me reach the deepest states of relaxation beyond anything I have ever achieved before. Amy is kind and knowledgeable; her energy is Amazing; and the office is clean, comfortable, tranquil and Beautiful. I excitedly look forward to my sessions with Amy and I cannot recommend her highly enough!
Amy has been a presence since the beginning of my studies with aromatherapy and over that time has remained a reliable constant in information and advice. Excellent aromatherapist and professional who can be trusted with even complex cases.
I’ve had excellent reflexology sessions in China, and when I got back to Austin, went looking for something similar here. I was disappointed time after time – until I found Barefoot Dragonfly. Amy’s training is top-shelf; her manner is welcoming and relaxing, and her knowledge of reflexology is outstanding. I schedule in regular appts (just as I do with my hairstylist) – it’s something that keeps me feeling good and keeping healthy!
I highly recommend Amy and Barefoot Dragonfly!
You guys. I had NO IDEA reflexology could be such a completely relaxing experience! From the moment I walked thru the door, my tension started dissipating. Through perfectly, peacefully quiet and beautifully decorated halls, Amy led me to the most comfortable chair I’ve ever sat in and soaked my feet in a just-prepared blend of essential oils and warm water. Then my dream chair got even dreamier, and tilted me back for the reflexology treatment. I don’t know about you, but my previous experience with “reflexology” was having tender places on my feet pulverized by pointy thumbs. Little did I know! Amy has an expertly tender touch, and an excellent bedside manner. Everything she did felt wonderful, and by 10 minutes in I was floating in another world. When it was over, I felt relaxed and calm but also invigorated. Ready for a new week! Since my first visit, I’ve been returning regularly, and have found Amy and her work nothing short of excellent. I’ve experienced better sleep, improved digestion and increased resilience to stress as a result of Amy’s care. I give Amy 10 toes up!
Amy is amazingly talented and knowledgeable about her arts. I have been thrilled with my treatments and individualized care. And, I love her treatment chair, its pure bliss.
Amy is amazing at what she does! I’ve had several reflexology appointments with her, the most recent being an induction session at 41+2 weeks pregnant and I had my daughter in my arms 24 hours later! She’s shown me how to make elderberry syrup to protect my family from seasonal germs, and how to safely use Essential Oils. She is highly educated and passionate about what she does; you would be lucky to work with her!
I’ve been seeing Amy for reflexology and aromatherapy for several years now, and I recommend her widely. She is an absolute wealth of herbal, aromatherapeutic, and reflexology information; she reads widely and is constantly updating me on things she learns that may pertain to my health; and she’s a joyful, compassionate presence. Plus, she usually serves tea. I always leave our sessions feeling better and better-informed.
Amy knows her stuff! Amazing reflexology treatments that relieve tension headaches! I really appreciate this wonderful woman she blended some amazing oils for deep tissue work.
Amy listens and she’s very professional. I’m sleeping better and feeling more in “rhythm” since my recent visit. I’m looking forward to returning soon!
I met with Amy for the first time at my daughters suggestion. I was having problems with gall bladder. I thought she was crazy to recommend Reflexology for this problem. Amy worked on my digestion and showed me a pressure point that would help when it flared up again. I have had one problem since I saw Amy and was surprised that it was not as bad a spell I had been having. I would recommend The Barefoot Dragonfly. It is a relaxing experience.
Thank you Amy
We did a phone consult and it was very helpful. She recommended oils for me and also for my horses during the conversation.
I have been going to Amy for reflexology for a few months and plan to continue! She has helped my stress level, I immediately feel better after sessions with her. She has also helped my sinus issues. I highly recommend reflexology and absolutely with Amy at Barefoot Dragonfly!
Amy is truly the BEST! I have had two sessions with her now and I cannot emphasize enough her level of knowledge and professionalism. I am an LMT and have been receiving bodywork for over 30 years – rarely have I experienced the comfort, relaxation and healing as I have with Amy. She has taught me not only about how aromatherapy can improve my life but also how skilled work on ones extremities can truly heal your entire being.
Can’t wait to see her again!!
When I asked for aromatherapist referrals, Amy’s name was put forth time after time. She did a wonderful job coming up with an aromatherapy plan for my daughter. My daughter was so excited to get started after the consultation and so far she’s having a thoroughly positive response. I highly recommend Amy and plan to schedule a consultation for myself.
You can rely on Amy to be knowledgeable, professional and empathetic all at the same time and that is a rare combo to find. I only regret not being close enough to go for regular sessions with her.
Amy is one of the most knowledgeable aromatherapists I know. I respect her knowledge, and her unique take on the topic. She’s a great mentor as well.
Menu of Services
My mission here at The Barefoot Dragonfly is to co-create a wellness plan that is customized to your unique needs and goals that supports your health and well-being. Botanical, energetic, and lifestyle medicine does not seek to pacify symptoms, instead it works to remove obstacles to health. You’ll note that in acute cases, like sciatica or a UTI, results can be seen quickly, while more chronic imbalances are resolved gradually.
I take appointment requests Monday through Friday between the hours of 10am-5pm Central time zone. Please note all appointments are subject to the 24 hour cancellation policy which may be waived in cases of rapid-onset infectious illness (like COVID-19), or going into labor, but isn’t waived in cases where you forgot or changed your mind about the appointment.

“It is more important to know what sort of person has a disease than to know what sort of disease a person has.” – Hippocrates

“To reach the individual we need an individual remedy. Each of us is a unique message. It is only the unique remedy that will suffice. We must, therefore, seek odiferous substances which present affinities with the human being we intend to treat, those which will compensate for his deficiencies and those which will make his faculties blossom.” – Marguerite Maury
Telehealth sessions incorporate botanical medicine in the form of herbs, essential oils, and hydrosols, as well as energetic and lifestyle medicine grounded in traditional Ayurvedic and Chinese medical system theories. These consults are designed to explore your unique strengths and weaknesses to best support your body’s innate healing capacity.
In this telehealth consultation we’ll work together to address an acute health challenge like seasonal allergies, a UTI, hemorrhoids, or neck pain.
“Reflexology can successfully restore the circulatory, nervous, immune, digestive, hormonal, and structural systems to normal functioning.” – Martine Faure-Alderson, D.O.
Reflexology is a holistic therapy that utilizes specific pressure techniques applied to reflex maps, found on the feet, hands, and ears, that mirror the body. This nurturing pressure technique, unique to Reflexology, sends a message through the nervous, electrical, magnetic, and chemical systems of the body promoting homeostasis for mind, body, and spirit. For best results, plan on starting with a series of weekly or biweekly sessions to get the most out of this gentle, cumulative therapy.
60 Minute Reflexology
