Complementary Therapies and Epilepsy


I would like some advice on the safety of treating a young woman who has Epilepsy and also suffers from debilitating depression. She does not want to take medication for her depression as this upsets the Epilepsy medication. Which of the complementary therapies would you recommend. I would lean towards Reflexology, which, from what I have researched so far, is relatively safe. She is using regular support services. I feel she would benefit from holistic therapies which would incorporate treatment for both conditions but would like to get as much information together as possibe, before making the suggestion. I am recently qualified in Reflexology, Aromatherapy and Body Massage. Your experiences and advice would be appreciated.

I entirely agree with Dawn - but approach aromatherapy with great care and only use known safe oils. Massage is generally extremely beneficial, with or without essential oils.
