Casa De Mi Alma is a startup wellness center that is in need of funds for equipment to get the center up and running. The original investors fell through after the building was purchased two weeks ago, leaving us in a trying situation. We are now in search of some angels that can assist us in this period in time and in turn help us help our community. Casa De Mi Alma holds a dynamic vision that will truly have a positive impact on so many lives. Please read the description below to get a better idea of the center's vision and/or visit www.casademialma.biz.
Casa De Mi Alma is designed to help clients in Las Cruces, New Mexico, achieve ultimate balance in their lives through counseling, fitness, and nutrition. We believe balance is attained by treating the behavioral, physical, and nutritional health of our clients. We believe addressing the connection of mind-body-spirit, otherwise known as holistic treatment, is the best way to achieve ultimate balance. The goal of the center is to offer a nurturing space that comforts the soul in this busy world while also building a healthier, stronger community.
There is evidence that supports the mind-body-spirit connection and its modalities, as they are assisting those suffering from many disorders. As the trend is moving forward in supporting holistic health, it is still very difficult in the area to actually make the changes necessary for healthy living. The options of where to go to feed your mind, body, and spirit are few and far between. Therefore, Casa De Mi Alma is geared towards providing these much needed services to well-deserved people.
Casa De Mi Alma is founded on the philosophy that society has ignored the mind-body-spirit connection of total health and has developed unhealthy coping mechanisms in the process. As a result, members of this society have lost a healthy balance to life. Our solution is to provide clients wellness strategies that promote positive lifestyle changes and introduce coping skills that help them find balance in their lives or that help them restore balance to their lives.
Casa De Mi Alma is owned and operated by Alma Salazar who also serves as president of the center. Ms. Salazar holds a Master's of Social Science Administration. She has over 13 years of social work experience with clients in child protective services, the military, adoptions, juvenile probation, and in various treatment model practices.
Ms. Salazar is a licensed independent social worker and a certified personal trainer, with an additional certification in sports nutrition that will be completed in November 2013, giving her the knowledge required to provide well-rounded services for Casa De Mi Alma clientele.
Vice president and executive chef of Casa De Mi Alma is Felipe Alvarez. Mr. Alvarez holds a Master's of Curriculum and Instruction. He has worked in various hospitals, restaurants, resorts, and educational settings as a chef and as an instructor of food science. He also owned his own cafÃ©. To add to his culinary repertoire, he also has experience as a personal chef and caterer.
Mr. Alvarez recently obtained certification as a personal trainer and is expected to obtain an additional certification in sports nutrition in November 2013, expanding his unique perspective on the nutritional needs of Casa De Mi Alma clientele.
Ms. Salazar and Mr. Alvarez have acquired the necessary knowledge in their respective fields to provide the services that will lead to significant changes in the lives of their clients from the moment Casa De Mi Alma opens its doors. Their combined experience in managing resources strengthens the success of Casa De Mi Alma.
