Where communities know who to call to safely remove a bee hive and rescue from extermination. A revitalization of this ancient practice that flows naturally as we return to the land and farming. Fun and engaging opportunities for children to learn of their importance and grow up loving Honeybees rather than fearing them.

Reina Prado founder of Healing Queen
Prado is a Xicana feminista that brings a bi-lingual and bi-cultural approach to the sessions and workshops she facilitates. Through each session, she supports a client’s nervous system by aligning and fortifying their cranial rhythm. This can help ease pain within the physical body, and the client may experience a deeper unwinding of energy blocks in other areas of their life. Prado created a hybrid modality called the Love Limpia, which helps clear out emotional and / or physical blocks surrounding love. This could look like or feel like limiting beliefs about deserving love, or releasing energetic ties to an ex. Through the love limpia, one may experience an expansion of their heart space that welcomes and radiates love. Prado uses a combination of tools such as therapeutic grade essential oils (particularly in Raindrop Treatment™ and Isis Ritual), tuning forks, crystals, and tarot cards during each session. Collectively these practices help her navigate a client’s energy system in a more wholistic matter. Prado is certified as an ICSU (Integrative Cranial Sacral Unwinding) and RPP (Registered Polarity) Practitioner through the Life Energy Institute.
