Mariana began a professional career in Marketing, where she continued her relationship with movement – learning how to identify a deeper mind-body connection using yoga and meditation. A connection that led to volunteer work and ultimately, her role as a healer. Mariana’s passion to serve others is rooted in compassion to help those in need, a fascination with the complexity of the human body + healing processes, and her deep understanding of energetics.
Mariana continued to focus on academia and graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Masters in Traditional and Oriental Medicine from the Emperor’s College in Santa Monica, CA. She uses combined modern and ancient methods to transform patients from a state of malnourishment and ‘dis-ease’ to Vibrancy, Health and Artful Living. Mariana’s work is driven by World Peace–She uses both intuition and resources to help people find inner balance and heal organically.
