Yolotzin Healing Arts Medicine Philosophy & Roots
Yolotzin is a Nahuatl word meaning “sacred heart” or “fluttering heart”. Nahuatl is a Native language spoken throughout areas of Central America, and North America. With intention being the root of all medicine, Yolotzin Healing Arts was envisioned with the intention of blooming healing from the Heart. As we walk along the road of our healing journey we spiral into the body, into the heart, to discover ourselves again. Polish and refine our unique expression to once again spiral out into a state of balance, and ease.
