I guess I was no

Happy New Year!

I wish you, your family and loved ones a fantastic New Year! May you make time to silence the world outside and travel inwards, enjoying the angelical voices of your inner guidance. May you keep digging deeper and deeper into your heart, into your family’s history so you can uncover the secrets to your healing and well being.           The tools Mother Nature shares abundantly with us, like crystals, are amazing to help us reach deep into our hearts during meditation. May you keep dreaming and take each day a little step towards the manifestation of

Why Healing With Sounds?

Why healing with sounds? Because we are vibrational beings, with energy pulsating in and all around us. According to Jonathan Goldman, director of the Sound Healers Association,  “people have been using mantras and others sounds for various types of healing and consciousness shifts for thousands of years in different traditions”. Shamans have used drumming, rattling, chanting, instrumental music and other sounds techniques as its primary tools for healing. I have been using in my practice, for several years now, sounds in combination with body work. What I see the majority of my clients experience, specially after certain tuning forks are

When the World Has Gone Crazy

If the world has gone crazy, we don’t need to. And there we are, all together, all(most of us) wanting the same: peace, happiness, love, abundance, health and joy…if all human beings can have that, safety is a given. How can we keep ourselves grounded in our utmost values? How can we not sway in many directions contributing to the chaos around us? We must remember who we are! We must rescue deep within our hearts our inner power and use it for good.  I remember when after my training to be an energy healer, several years ago in Sedona,

Caring for the Kidneys to Preserve Life Force

  In Traditional Chinese Medicine the kidneys are the fountain of youth, the foundation of vital life and longevity,  they store the Essence of Life Force, inherited from our parents. The Energy in our bodies flow when we are relaxed, when we are mindful, conscious of our actions and present at each moment ( not necessarily an easy thing to do). I have learned about the importance of flow of Energy within the body, through yoga, mindful breathing and meditation. I also have learned ( and experienced it) that when the emotions take control of our lives, there is very

Healing Wounds in the Heart for Expansion of the Soul

As energy beings, we cannot expand if our hearts are not open. The wounded heart learns to shield itself for protection blocking the natural flow of energy within the body. Several years ago I  went to Sedona, in Arizona, to be part of an Energy Healing training program. The journey for my personal healing started there. During the training I became aware of the wounds in my heart. Those wounds were causing havoc to my emotional and physical health and well being. My soul wanted to fly, however the weight within was holding me back. The secret to tap into

Welcome 2016!

Welcome 2016! As the new year shows its light and promises, let’s be mindful of the importance of our well being. If our body and mind are in check, delving into the realm of our dreams becomes a much more fun and easy experience. Let’s be proactive with the health of our hearts, bodies, and minds. Be more positive in the information you choose to read and watch, push the stop button whenever you feel the need to–remember, you are in control. Hopefully this will be the year you are able to make meditation and massage part of your regular

Massage to Aid Resilience in Times of Change

It’s hard to deny that the times we are living in right now are times of great transformation, not only in the planet, but mostly in personal and familial lives, the true root of what we see reflected in the world outside of us. Because the unexpected happens more often than we are prepared for, it is really critical that we cultivate good personal habits to deal with stress of any kind, be it a loss, illness, financial issues, break up of a relationship or anything we could think of that makes us feel unsafe. As obvious as it is

Let’s Teach Our Children How To Relax…

          I have noticed recently, in my massage and energy work practice, more and more visits from children and young adults. It’s truly an honor to be trusted to care for the little ones and teenagers. I love them and feel that they have a much deeper connection to the source, to this vast Universe, than most of us adults. What has been surprising to me is the amount of tension, pain, and intense alertness in those kids, mostly due to the overuse of electronic devices like video games and cell phones . As a natural reaction

Massage to Clear the Mind

Stress is one of the main causes of diseases and lack of anger management. Knowing that losing control of our emotions can cost us relationships, jobs, and even our health might be a good start to look for healthy ways to cope with stress. Muscle tension happens every time we feel stressed and angry, limiting the amount of oxygen flowing through our body, especially to our brains. That’s why we feel that is hard to make a decision and think clearly. I personally feel tremendous stress at the end of school year when my children are about to get out
