What is a Curandera?
Curanderas are traditional healers who are knowledgeable and deeply connected to the herbs, foods, and remedies of their ancestors and culture. They work to connect the physical body, spiritual body, and the mind. In Curanderismo, it is believe that sickness and disease can be caused by emotional, spiritual, psychological, and metaphysical factors—all of these must be balanced in order to live in harmony. Curanderxs use rituals, remedies, and traditional practices to help folks find this harmony and balance in their live. Each Curanderx offers a unique experience when using their natural gifts in combination with their training.
