I empower heart-centered professionals and individuals experiencing stress and overwhelm through an integrated holistic healing system.
Mariposas, means butterflies in Spanish, and incorporates my bi-cultural lifestyle of Cuban-American. Mariposas symbolize for me transformation and freedom to live with purpose, happiness, and health. A lifestyle I have discovered while traveling the world seeking community along with adventure and finding out who I really was and wanted to be.
Throughout this journey I have attained skills, wisdom, and knowledge from various sources within ancient and western health practices which I now incorporate into Mariposas and every place I travel.
For many years I have considered mariposas as symbols of transformation, changing from one being, a caterpillar into another, a mariposa. They also represent freedom through flight and bringing joy to whoever see and appreciate them. I have come to embrace transformation as a lifelong journey as I continue to consciously understand and release my feelings of sadness, guilt, anger, or other feelings of low vibrations that have kept me isolated from others. I continue to maintain my balance creating my reality and living my life with passion.
Tragedy pushed my family and I over when we discovered my sister had cancer in 2010. Obviously it shocked every member of my family to the core and she underwent numerous tests and learned about her options. We all thought it was a death sentence and when she opted for natural healing my parents and brother became very worried. Yoli, my sister, and I were very close so I knew she was aware of her choice and therefore decided to focus on supporting her and learning about her journey with cancer. I began to experience integrative health and complementary techniques such as sound healing and raw food. Most importantly her focus was to understand the reason she had cancer, which originated in her lungs, throat chakra. Her journey influenced my professional and personal path such as learning Reiki. Sadly, she passed away in 2010 with myself and my family surrounding her, blessing her towards heaven. Within a year my mother was diagnosed with cancer, same area as my sister but different name. She opted for complementary medicine; cancer and natural healing, however, she also passed away 4 years after Yoli.
Their deaths have taught me to really embrace my life and understand more about healing my body naturally. Also, due to my faith in purpose that I continue to move forward with them in my heart. My grief has inspired me to practice and learning natural ways to release chronic and terminal diseases.
As I mentioned above in about me, my sister has been my strongest inspiration. I began Mariposas Holistic Healing (MHH) in 2013 shortly after losing my employment while I was living in Nicaragua after relocating there after graduation with high hopes of empowering communities. Nicaragua grew to having a special place in my heart after completing my public health internship there while in graduate school. However, I was too proud to return home after my employment vanished.
While living in Nicaragua I practiced Reiki with friends to help with stress relief. It was more fun than a business venture, yet the universe had other plans.
My first official client came to me out of desperation as she had heard about my ability to ease people’s pain and discomfort. She mentioned feeling a horrible pain below her belly button and the medical community was unable to help her. After a few Reiki and counseling sessions we were able to discover the source of the pain, an emotional attachment from childhood which continued into adulthood. We then identified ways to release it holistically and to this day the pain has not returned and she’s much happier and healthier.
Since that first client I've been able to bridge the gap between traditional and alternative therapies to incorporate more spiritual practices in a western world.
Mariposas Holistic Healing is a business offering healing services, workshops, and programs to others stuck in their current life. I have always lived a life of service, volunteering and working in the helping field, which made crisis and trauma work comfortable for me. I have always had the heart of a gypsy so embracing and learning techniques in traditional and natural medicine has been practical for my lifestyle. Mariposas HH has evolved from a deep sadness and loss into a transformative business of healing and support. Since I began Mariposas, I have been integrating my years of formal education with natural and intuitive healing techniques to assist people on their healing journey and release stress.
Thank you, thank you for the person you are, for all that you do, and mostly, for being present both in spirit and in person as I continue on this journey of self-realization, commitment, growth and learning. For I now know that I could not have done this on my own. Words may never be enough or this lifetime to express how deeply thankful and grateful I am to have you in my life. Zugey
“Trying my first session with Paty, I was nervous as it was the first time I had ever seen a counselor or been in contact with a Reiki healer. She made me feel comfortable and I knew she was the counselor I would like to continue seeing. She has been a great source of support for me. She is very helpful, organized and professional. The Reiki healing is like an added bonus!” Vanessa
Paty is one of the most skilled healers that I have ever known…she has taken pain away from me that went almost unphased for over 10 years…her knowledge about how energy works within my body helped me to better understand how I can maintain what she has freed me from…the thoroughness of healing the mental, physical, and spiritual aspects of my wellness gave me added power and clarity in my life… I have been both healed and blessed by her sharing her gifts with me. – Allen
“Paty is amazing!!! I have taken Reiki 1 with her and have done energy sessions. Her extensive knowledge of color therapy, stress counseling and reiki take healing to the next level. Her positive energy and bright spirit renew me with each visit. I recommend her services to everyone I meet. ” – Jen B.
“My first full Reiki session with Paty was amazing. I look forward to being a steady client. I felt comfortable and secure in sharing my physical, mental and spiritual issues. Her own openness and knowing the right rich question to ask gave me confidence in sharing and allowed me to be able to be fully present to the Reiki experience. Paty has given me an alternative way to deal with my aging body with confidence, wisdom, and grace. She is wise beyond her years and very competent in her choice of professions. I say professions; for she makes excellent connections in her holistic (wholistic) approach and is present to you in a way you know she has your best interests at heart and hand.” – Joan
is a Japanese spiritual energy healing modality using a gentle, hands-on or over the body healing, as well as, through remote healing that promotes relaxation in the body, mind, and spirit. Reiki energy assists your body in releasing blocked energy so you can feel energized and rejuvenated. It engages the body and activates emotional-awareness, healing every aspect of our human condition, intellect, body, and awareness. Reiki balances your universal life energy, also known as your Qi or Chi, within the energy points of your body, the chakras. It is offered in person and remotely (over the phone or video).
Regardless if the session is in person or distance, Reiki knows exactly where to go and how to support you, even if you’re unsure what needs healing. As the channel, Reiki flows through me and out from my hands over your body as it connects to your energy field. I can feel (yes, even remotely) stuck energy and assist in unblocking it which may release physical, mental or emotional blocks which you can feel almost immediately. The energy assists in releasing stuck energy and clearing emotional patterns.
