Meet the Healing Artist
Hello! My name is Andrea Ulibarri, I am a healing artist, educator and the founder of Rhythmic Touch Therapies, LLC. My journey began on a small farm in Eastern New Mexico, growing up on a farm teaches you a great deal about life and its cycles. This was my first experience learning how energy worked and living this type of life taught me the importance of sustainability and how to truly connect with mother earth and father time. As a child I always had a vision of becoming a teacher and a healer opening a center for learning, healing and the arts.
In 2003, after attending Westside Technical School in Winter Garden, Florida I received my Florida State Massage Therapy License and National Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork Certification. It was then I decided to work in every area of the massage industry to gain as much knowledge and experience as possible. I have had the honor to work in a number of settings; resorts, spas, health and wellness centers, acupuncture clinics, chiropractic offices and onsite. Just to name a few: Disney's Saratoga Springs Resorts. Orlando Sports Chiropratic; Tommy Shaw's Training Camp & Orlando Ballet, Isleworth Fitness Center; Orlando Magic, PGa and LPGA. My experiences in these areas taught me a number of different body and energy work modalities as well as gaining experience working with a number of very talented healing practitioners and people from all walks of life. I took many continuing education classes in advanced modalities such as Hot Stone Massage, Shiatsu, Reflexology, Myofascial Release, Trigger Point Therapy and Hydrotherapy. I became a “Spa Therapist” learning many types of body treatments and a “Chiropractic Assistant” assisting the Chiropractor with Segmental traction, E-stim, Ultrasound therapy, foam rolling, stretching and exercises Even with all my education and training, I still felt a huge component was missing in my practice and my ability to assist another’s healing process.
In 2006, I returned to Westside Technical School to earn a Florida State Facial Specialist License. I was then able to offer Facials, Make-up, and Waxing, as well as advance my knowledge in skincare for body treatments. I took advanced courses in Microdermabrasion, Chemical peels, Acupressure and specialty facials. It brought my attention to the fact that when people looked good, they felt good. It was amazing how teaching and assisting in skincare really made a difference in someone’s overall health. I loved it but wanted to go further than just skin deep.
That same year I discovered the power of energy work and meditation becoming a Certified Qigong Instructor through Supreme Science Qigong Center. This gave me the opportunity to facilitate workshops and teach Qigong at various yoga studios, wellness centers and martial arts academies in the community and throughout Florida.
I wanted to take my Qigong training to the next level so I paired up with a Sifu and Doctor of Oriental Medicine to learn Shoringyru style Qigong, Medical Qigong, Energy Matrix Work, Moxibustion, Cupping, Qigong Healing and Kung Fu. This is a journey I still continue on to this day, as it allows me to continually advance my knowledge of energy medicine, breath work, meditation, exercise and integration of my mind, body and spirit.
In 2007, I became a BodyTalk practitioner and member of the International BodyTalk Association. After practicing energy work, seeing the results and really understanding my own journey in life I decided to create my own healing modality and Rhythmic Touch Therapies was born.
In 2010, I completed my Bachelors of Science Degree in Alternative Medicine at Everglades University. This is a holistic degree, encompassing all forms of alternative medicine including: Nutrition, Herbology, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Ayurvedic Medicine, Naturopathy, Homeopathy, Chiropractic, Manual Therapies, Feng Shui, stress management and so much more.
Over the next couple of years I focused my energy more on sustainable living projects such as building with raw materials, alternative energy sources, capturing rainwater, permaculture design, composting, organic growing of mushrooms, herbs, and various fruits and vegetables and completed an internship program through The Green Education Center.
In 2013, I became a Certified Health Coach through the United States Health Foundation and began incorporating all that I had learned within my degree program and all my years of experience with healing people. This allowed me an opportunity to bring everything I had learn together and to begin educating people about creating a healthy and holistic lifestyle.
Within the same year, I became an Ordained Minister through the Universal Life Church and also a Certified Reiki Master and Teacher. I also began creating my own Healing Arts Accessories Line which includes products such as Hot and Cold Herbal Packs, Herbal Eye Pillows, Herbal Bath Salt Blends and a variety of products using Aromatherapy such as salt scrubs, body sprays, chapstick, body butter, healing salves, and so much more.
In 2014, I began teaching at the Florida College of Natural Health where I teach both the Basic Massage Therapy and Advanced Bodyworker Programs. My focus is mostly the eastern modalities such as Acupressure, Shiatsu, Reflexology, both the basic and advanced Cranial Sacral Therapy Classes and First Aid/CPR.
In 2015, I received training and began working with Bach Flower Essence to help balance the mental and emotional states of clients. I found that using the Bach Flower Essence in conjunction with the other therapies had profound results on the client ability to cope with the healing transitions and accelerated the healing process. I also began teaching Florida State Approved Continuing Education Classes at the Florida School of Holistic Living offering credits for Florida State Licensed Massage Therapists, Acupuncturists and Nurses.
In 2016, I was drawn to The Center of Akashic Studies and completed the Basic and Advanced Akashic Records Practitioner courses. I found the information I was able to retrieve from the records to be powerfully healing and began offering the readings as a service. Later that same year, I completed a 200 hour Yoga Alliance approved Yoga Teacher Training with Empath Yoga. This training focused on personal development, sustainable living, incorporating your intuition and creativity in your yoga practice and using it to create a progressive holistic lifestyle. I now teach yoga at various yoga studios and martial arts academies as well as offer one on one sessions.
In 2017, I started teaching meditation and offering massage and healing sessions with Halotherapy at The Salt Scene. I also became an instructor for LmtsucCEss providing Continuing Education Credits for The National Certification Board of Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork and Florida State Licensed Massage Therapist. I teach a number of classes including Cranial Sacral Therapy, Reflexology, Chakra Therapy, Reiki I, II, Master/Teacher and many more currently awaiting approval. The same year I received training in Tuning Fork Therapy and now incorporate tuning forks in healing sessions.
My journey continues as I recently became a mother and am learning more than ever how to walk the middle path. I enjoy learning, growing and expanding and I look forward to sharing my knowledge and experiences with you along your healing journey. Thank you for your interest and welcome to the experience of a life time.
