I grew up with an intuitive family that has experienced a lot of generational trauma. My parents were born in Mexico. I am first generation born American. I grew up translating for special needs family members to Spanish. American Sign Language allowed me to read English and further integrate my studies.
For most of my life, I unconsciously took on the trauma of others, and give away my power just as often. It took me great practice to learn how to separate myself from others narratives, patterns and ailments, as well as external sounds and activity around me.
I have gravitated to self healing since the first yoga class I participated in with my parents at age 14. Adjusting lifestyle and nutrition allowed me to correct pre-cancer at that time.
In my early 20’s I had the pleasure of learning Naam Yoga, a universal system for self-healing dedicated to uplift one’s consciousness through western and eastern yogic wisdom, breathwork, mudra, sacred sound meditation that has been life altering for family members.
Whatever industry I worked in; fashion, video production, professional dance, special needs care or wholesale produce and logistics, I had always made time for my self healing practices.
When I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer at age 27, fear and mistrust got the best of me. I spent lots of time going to others for help. I turned my power over to doctors and gave up on the self care I held so dearly before the cancer. It took me a long time to realize that I have more powerful tools within me than I had ever received from an outside source.
I knew my destiny was helping others learn how to trust in their own power and take care of their bodies. I have spent the past 5 years learning to further heal myself by working with fascia as a Fascial Maneuvers Practitioner, as well as working with the Biofield.
As a CPM Practitioner, I am now helping others with their pain and traumas. It will continue to be a learning process, which is one of the things I love most about it. The Biofield offers a fascinating insight into our pain processes. I am grateful to be able to help people learn more so they can be empowered to help themselves as I have done.
