Curanderismo comes from the word curar which means "to heal". Holistic healing combines beliefs, faith, prayer, herbs, salves, chants, massage and/or energies to heal someone's mind, body and spirit to bring them back to feeling whole.
April has been a practicing curandera for many years. It all started with her grandmother. She used herbs, herbal teas, candles and prayer to heal. Then, April saw her mother use herbal teas as well for GI distress, headaches and other minor illnesses. Having her grandmother and mother being her first maestras was a blessing, but working under several more maestreas and maestros over the past few decades has enhanced her skill and knowledge.
Being very sensitive to the environment around her since a child, she knew her calling...to help others. This would be either holistically or in a medical setting. April's skillful knowledge of being a emergency room nurse helps integrate different modalities transitioning from western medicine to indigenous modalities ensuring overall wellness. As well as being a registered nurse, she also holds a doctoral degree in nursing leadership and a masters degree in nursing education. So, guiding and educating her clients makes the sessions very comfortable.
