Meet Nancy E Garcia of Del Sol Therapies in Culver City

Today we’d like to introduce you to Nancy E Garcia.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Nancy E. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
My journey began in the healing arts when I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety. I was looking for alternative therapies to help me cope with life. I felt overwhelmed with life. I was in an abusing relationship for nine years. In my journey of self-healing, I also saw myself living life without a definite purpose. One day on my drive to Santa Monica, I saw a massage school and a memory of my grandmother sitting on a chair and me massaging her legs emerged. Her saying to me: “mija you have healing hands.” She would tell her friends how much better she would feel after massaging her. The idea of becoming a Massage Therapist came into my mind. I made the decision to enroll. I started school in July 2011 and graduated in March 2013. It took me a while to finish due to the fact that I was working full time, raising my son, and attending school part-time.

At first, I had a lot of self-doubts and fears. I grew in a home where abuse was normal. I had low self-esteem. My body was in so much stress that I developed Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ). I had a difficult time saying no that I was a people’s pleaser. I really pushed myself to finish massage school and while getting massages from my peers, I learned that massage helped me sleep better and my anxiety levels decreased. It made me feel good to know that it was helping me feel better. I learned that the body is like a hard-drive that retains all the emotions that we do not acknowledge or refuse to acknowledge. Tension and pain are side effects that our body is telling us that is out of balance and that something is going on in our psychic. Learning more about how our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors affect how we feel physically took me to wanting to learn more.

I read about energy work and took two courses of Reiki where I learned that we have an energy field and that the chakras are energy centers that move the energy freely. When the energy gets stagnate, there is no balance in the body, mind, and spirit connections. It also took me to expand my knowledge, and in my pursuit, I found Pranic healing which also another modality of energy work. In my journey, I also asked the Universe to guide me into understanding the connection between the Mind and Spirit which led me to Science Of The Mind. I attended Emerson Theological School and attained a Science Of The Mind Practitioner certificate in July 2019. My therapies are unique because I practice with my heart for the greatest good of the person I am serving. My bodywork is combination of massage and energy work. I”m hosting a healing group on Facebook which is Del Sol Healing Group where we shared ideas and support each other. My life purpose is to guide others to change their old and unwise paradigm to become their own medicine.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Has it been? Oh man, let’s talk about struggles. Dealing with anxiety most of my life and having depression have been the most difficult struggles to overcome. Allowing to be abused and not respecting myself brought me to the lowest point of my life. I learned that the most important thing in this human experience is to love myself and own my life. We are not born to be victims, we become a victim when we do not take ownership of our mind. The relationship we need to heal is the relationship we have with ourselves.
