Shannon Villalba, JD, LLM
I’m a small cell cancer survivor and used the tools I learned over the years to help myself heal in five months in addition to my traditional treatments of chemotherapy and radiation. I studied meditation for 16 years, and used aromatherapy for 14 years, so I knew how to still my mind, what foods to eat, and what essential oils to use to combat nausea. I have always had an interest in holistic therapies, so I took advantage of the healing properties of Reiki, Healing Touch, Jin Shin Jyutsu, Biofeedback, massage therapy, and sound therapy to name a few. I was lucky because I knew where to look for complementary treatments. I also realized that there are a lot of people out there who don’t.
In 2016 I created HIME Wellness to serve as a liaison between complementary, holistic medicine practitioners and individuals. HIME Wellness’s purpose is to educate others on techniques and practices so they may live a fuller and richer life, and learn what additional therapies are out there.
I am finally doing what I love – inspiring, educating, and motivating others. I’m very excited to see the growth of HIME Wellness into what I envision it to be: a resource for all who seek knowledge, a community for collaboration, and a tool to serve others. I, along with our other holistic and integrative medicine practitioners, are adamant about creating programs to help those who are ready to take charge of their wellness choices. I hope to see you as either a member, or as an attendee at one of our events!
I am a mom, lawyer, Reiki practitioner, meditation teacher, crystal healer, and entrepreneur.
