This is the beginning.

If you’ve found yourself here, you’re most likely burnt out and flooded by modern-day stressors, longing for rest, peace and healing. You’re done allowing circumstances, others and even yourself, get in the way of your physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing. While it certainly isn’t necessary, you may feel like you need permission to take care of yourself, to heal. As much as it may go against every fiber of your being, focusing on your health is not selfish. It is essential in order live a fruitful and abundant life and yet is so often overlooked and not prioritized in this day and age. We cannot give of ourselves if we are tired, unwell and imbalanced. Wherever you are in your health journey, embrace the ancient wellness traditions as they detox the mind, body and soul of excess. Allow yourself to prioritize daily, intentional acts of nourishment in order to get rid of the bad and welcome the good.

The Story

This is a space to pause and intentionally focus on our own needs. A space where saying “no” to the excess and “yes” to the essential is an intentional act of nourishment for the body, mind and soul.

I’m Olivia Hermosillo, a certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner in San Diego, California. I am passionate about teaching others the beauty and power of traditional foods, ancestral wisdom and simple ways to incorporate both into modern-day life.

Inspired by my own need to let go of the excess and welcome only the essential, I encourage others to go back to the basics in a world that seeks convenience over quality, trends over tradition and abundance over the necessary.

Here, we are purposeful with what we feed ourselves physically, mentally and spiritually. We listen to our bodies, nourish ourselves well and embrace the idea that less is enough. Learn more about my story here.

Are you overburdened by modern-day stressors?

Most of us are unaware of how toxic the world around us is. Radiation, chemicals, heavy metal exposure, air and water pollution, processed foods, poorly digested foods and stress all burden our bodies on a daily basis. This results in disease, dysfunction and imbalance in the body, mind and soul. When we take a moment to detox the real issues and replace them with good, nutritious, life-giving things, we can live our very best life.

Infrared Sauna Sessions & Packages

Each culture in history has used sauna therapy as a safe and powerful way to detox ranging from Native American sweat lodges to Finnish wood-fired saunas. Like many other health customs, this wise and beneficial tool has been lost over the years in a time where we need it the very most. Using near infrared incandescent light (the best of the best), we can overcome and heal from toxin related illness and dysfunction while also allowing our bodies a chance to rest, relax and recover. Learn about sauna therapy here or learn what to expect before, during and after a sauna session here.

A sauna session is 40 minutes.

  • Single session $30 $15

  • 3 session package $75 $35

  • Unlimited package $150 $100 (unlimited number of sauna sessions per month)

Therapeutic-Grade Oils

The use of essential oils today are simply based on the traditional wisdom and healing practices of the past. While they’re gaining popularity nowadays, essential oils have been around for thousands of years (there is even clear evidence of oils in the Bible!). Science is catching up with what people have known for centuries: essential oils can have a positive impact on your mental, emotional and physical health while presenting an effective and natural solution to the harsh toxins that are so widespread today.

Holistic Resource

With the amount of conflicting information out there relating to nutrition and health, enjoy this resource of evidence-based, bio-individual guidance. Allow this information to bring awareness to the foods you’re eating, the products you’re using and the mindset in which you adopt. Adding this knowledge to the care of a functionally-minded doctor or practitioner along with your innate wisdom, progress and optimal health will inevitably follow.

As complicated as our modern society as made it, nourishing yourself well is quite simple when we ignore the “noise” and go back to the basics — back to what we were eating and how we were living before the evolution of the modern diet began; when money became more important than health and when disease and dysfunction skyrocketed.

Begin Your Healing Journey

 

Find Your “Why”

How do we overcome the paralyzing thoughts that healing our body, mind and soul is too difficult? When we stay focused on our “why”, the outcome we’re working toward will outweigh the temporary discomfort that we’ll face.

Simplify & Nourish

We live with an overabundance of stressors nowadays. There are hundreds of things competing for our attention and it is up to us to let go of the excess, set boundaries and only welcome the essential into our lives.

Rest & Restore

To put it simply, our bodies cannot heal if we’re under stress. Our body reacts the same way to an emotional danger as it would to a physical threat. It’s of the upmost importance to be in tune with our body and allow ourselves to rest and restore.
