Today we’d like to introduce you to Heidi Abreu.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Heidi. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
My personal journey into the healing arts began in 2011 when I started my healing training in massage at the Massage Therapy Institute in Davis, Ca. I gained an exceptional education on variety modalities including Acupressure, taught by Kathleen Davis of Berkeley Ca., and Oncology Massage, taught by Isabel Adkins. My teachers had great insight, experience and compassion.
After my massage training, I entered into practice and also did a 200-hour teachers training in yoga. I taught restorative yoga alongside my massage and healing arts practice for several years which deepened my mind/body/spirit connection.
In 2013 I began my study of Ayurveda under another outstanding teacher, Bonita Carol. I completely changed my day to day life practices and healed digestive disorders along with anxiety within my body & mind. I was empowered with this wonderful knowledge and wisdom and knew that by sharing these techniques and providing the therapeutic treatments I could make a difference in other women’s lives.
In 2016 I continued my education with the wise and insightful Dr. Paul Dugliss of New World Ayurveda. Specializing in Spiritual Counseling and Vedic Astrology. I learned meditation techniques to calm the mind and bring peace to the mind and body. I have been able to share this with clients and see results happen so quickly that we both are astounded!
I opened Lotus Blooming Ayurveda in La Jolla July of 2017. I am excited to bring this great holistic knowledge to our community by guiding women through Ayurvedic stress management techniques and bodywork treatments that will bring more balance and joy into their lives.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
There have been many obstacles along my journey of creating an Ayurvedic practice. Beyond the regular challenges that any business owner has in the entrepreneurial world, in the practice of Ayurveda the main focus is to heal. So many of us are not prepared to take on the business title and market our services as we are under many years of study as a healer, not a business CEO.
I now embrace my role as a business owner and healer. Lotus Blooming Ayurveda has an enormous value that people truly need right now, it would be a shame to let the struggles on my journey stop me just because they might be hard. By staying authentic and leading all my business decisions with integrity and intention I have started to see Lotus Blooming Ayurveda truly blossom into a successful business.
Please tell us about Lotus Blooming Ayurveda.
I am passionate about helping women reduce anxiety and fatigue to create more balance and joy in their personal and professional lives. It is a great pleasure for me to share my knowledge and guide women through Ayurvedic stress management techniques that are holistic and work to deliver real results.
Lotus Blooming Ayurveda provides assistance to balance a little stress with some lovely spa treatments to get individuals back on track, or if they need a little more direction and time to work out a healthy stress reduction plan I create a customized treatment menu specifically to cater to their health concerns.
What sets Lotus Blooming Ayurveda apart from other spa’s is that I truly customize treatments that are planned for each individual. I create each plan and share my expertise in bodywork as well as knowledge on nutrition, yoga, and meditation.
I am so proud to have created a business based on honesty and integrity that helps others heal and that creates a waterfall effect of healing in the community.
Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
I have beautiful childhood memories of camping with my grandparents on my summer vacations. The fondest memories are of sitting around the campfire after a day on the lake, eating delicious food and enjoying each others company under a canopy of twinkling stars.
