"A real practitioner isn’t doing the healing for you, instad she creates a space in which you can rediscover your own innate healing power."

Frans Stiene

About me

I was born in 1962 in Morelia, Mexico. I am married and mother of two children.

Already at an early age I was interested in alternative methods of treatment. Many years ago I learned about the professional Reiki treatment and completed a two-year course in 'Mind healing' in Berlin. From 2004 to 2006 I studied medical basics in Zürich. The experiences and knowledge that I acquired throughout those years eventually brought me onto my journey to Biodynamic craniosacral therapy. I then started a training at the International School of biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy ISBC Kiental and obtained a degree as a registered biodynamic craniosacral therapist and opened my own practice. I have also completed several training courses in the field of working with babies and children.

"I am happy to have chosen this journey and profession and I love my work, especially being able to help newborn babies and children means a lot to me. Every time I am fascinated and grateful to experience how receptive, curious and without judgement babies and children are when they are treated. With my work I want to help people regain strength for their body and mind."
