Maria Jose Valenzuela - Therapist and Holistic Health Consultant
As a holistic health professional trained in Ayurveda and natural medicine, my mission is to help people like you improve their well-being and quality of life organically and effectively. With over a decade of experience applying wellness practices around the world, I have focused on bringing my knowledge to women seeking an alternative to conventional medical treatments.
My interest in holistic medicine began after being diagnosed with cancer in 2008. I was living in Milan, Italy and working as a graphic designer for high fashion magazines like Vanity Fair, GQ and Vogue. However, everything changed. I decided to look for natural solutions based on Ayurveda, healthy diets, alternative therapies, and yoga. Thanks to the success of the therapies, meditation and my life change, today I can help other women like me to transform their lives from a place of well-being. I learned and share in my training that it is not necessary to wait for a crisis to lead a better life.
My passion for learning about the ancient techniques of the East led me to travel to Bali, Indonesia, where I did my first Yoga Teacher Training with Dr. Guruji Somvier, Ayurvedic Physician, director of the "Bali India Foundation". It was an unforgettable experience that allowed me to explore and absorb yoga and Ayurvedic medicine firsthand, being attentive to how herbs grew in their natural environment, making special medicines and undergoing treatments at Dr. Somvier's clinic in Denpasar.
My next step was to travel to India in 2012 to study Ayurveda with Dr. Morya, Director of the Ayurvedic Clinic at Parmath Niketan Ashram in Rishikesh. Over a long period of time, I dedicated my effort to receiving the knowledge and experiences, observing how he treated his patients and participating in the discussions he had with university students.
Subsequently, in 2017, I completed my studies in Ayurveda at the Byron Bay Ayurveda College in Australia with Professor and Tibetan Dr. Jason Chandler, and did my professional practice covering treatments at the Byron Bay Ayurvedic Clinic.
With the experience gained, I decided to embark on my own path as a holistic health therapist and consultant. In 2019, I started offering in-person consultations in Byron Bay, Australia, and later created an online platform to offer coaching to people around the world. I have also developed a line of Ayurvedic medicinal products with high quality organic ingredients, which can help people like you to improve their well-being and quality of life.
"I firmly believe that we all have the potential to achieve the best version of ourselves. Even in a hectic modern world, health, well-being and happiness are within reach, my goal is to help you achieve it through new techniques and training specials developed on my online platform. I invite you to join me on this path to holistic well-being and happiness. Om Namah Shivaya."
