Being reborn as a Registered Nurse now, I decided to head south to the Amazon in Brazil for a dose of healing. There, deep into the forest surrounded by the heart beat of nature in all its tremendous sounds, colors, and purity I experience body healing for myself. As a healthcare practitioner and being a Certified Massage Therapist, my focus has been on supporting and encouraging health and healing for my clients. Now, being in the Amazon for a month or so, I was able to replenish, restore, and balance my own self. A key to helping others with their own body healing through massage therapy.

My experience as a first time Nurse in the Amazon, was one of observation, learning, speaking with the community to understand their approach to health, treatment and healing. As an RN and Massage therapist the learning never ends, I aim to return to the Amazon again and again for my own professional and personal development in the years to come.
