HelioSelf was founded with the desire to hold a safe space for all who are on a healing journey. I know how helpless you may feel if you have a chronic condition, illness, or just feel downright low.
I help people find hope again, glimmers of hope that lead to cascades of healing. Healing takes time, meeting the right people, and being introduced to tools that resonate with you. If you are reading this today, take this as a sign of hope!
My name is Sylvia.
I am a Certified BodyMind Coach, Licensed Massage Therapist, Professionally Trained Kambo Practitioner and I am certified in Reiki Level II.
I am a mama to a beautiful 7 year old boy.
I have 10+ years of experience with natural healing, inner child/shadow work, living with chronic pain/illness, and working with various plant/earth medicines.
I help people find the root causes of their ailments so that they can begin to see things from a new perspective and start to shift out of their discomfort.
I help people from all walks of life understand what it means to live “in their body”.
I also enjoy helping people with integration support before, during and after plant medicine journeys.
In my early 20’s, my body felt like it was shutting down and I began to have significant health problems. I leaned on alternative healing to help me get out of the darkest times. My support came from various forms of massage and bodywork, plant medicine/herbs, frog medicine (kambo), human interactions with people that understood me, and a practice called BodyMind Coaching. Today I combine all that I have learned in structured programs with my clients so that they can start feeling better, usually at a much faster rate than I did.
After a decade of not having a diagnosis, I found out recently that I am healing from Lyme disease, 3 other tick-borne infections and Epstein Barr. Without the tools I have today, I honestly may not be here. I am beyond grateful to be able to guide others out of their anxieties and illnesses, and to be able to teach people how to go from barely surviving to actually thriving.
I am here to help you find your way back to yourself and to help you live your best life from here on out.
If you know there is more to life, trust that. Please contact me so we can talk about how we can get you feeling better.
I look forward to hearing from you and helping you on your journey!
