Holistic healer shares her top DYI remedies

Long Beach holistic healer Panquetzani Ticitl approaches health through tradition. Her family practiced “energy healing,” a technique centered on transmitting heat and other natural processes to encourage health and recovery from stress and illness. She focuses on women’s bodies after labor.  Some women in the community heard about the way Panquetzani approached her own pregnancy, and began approaching her for advice. “Motherhood built my identity as a healer. [It gave me] the inspiration and the confidence that I need to be able to share with my community.” Examples of her holistic brand of medicine is on Voicewaves.
