MEET CINTHIA RIVAS

MEET CINTHIA, A LICENSED ACUPUNCTURIST, HERBALIST, AND REIKI MASTER WHO HAS BEEN PRACTICING FOR TWELVE YEARS. LOCATED IN CULVER CITY, CINTHIA SHARES WITH US WHAT INSPIRED HER TO VENTURE AND STUDY HOLISTIC MEDICINE.

 

Q: WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO STUDY AND PRACTICE HOLISTIC MEDICINE?

A: I STRUGGLED WITH ANXIETY, DEPRESSION, AND A NUMBER OF OTHER HEALTH ISSUES IN MY TWENTIES AND HOLISTIC MEDICINE IS WHAT HEALED ME.

Q: WHAT DOES SUCCESS LOOK LIKE TO YOU? IS YOUR IDEA OF SUCCESS DIFFERENT FROM A PREVIOUS VERSION?

A: MY IDEA OF SUCCESS IS DOING WORK THAT IS MEANINGFUL TO ME, BEING OF SERVICE TO OTHERS, AND HAVING THE FREEDOM CHOOSE WHEN I WANT TO WORK AND WHO I WANT TO WORK WITH. I'VE WANTED TO WORK FOR MYSELF AND HELP OTHERS FOR A LONG AS I CAN REMEMBER SO I DON'T THINK I'VE EVER HAD ANOTHER VERSION.

Q: DO YOU HAVE ANY FAILURES, WHICH IN RETROSPECT, LED YOU IN A BETTER DIRECTION?

A: I ONCE STRUGGLED WITH BOUNDARIES AND CHARGING WHAT I WAS WORTH FOR MY SERVICES, WHICH LEAD TO PHYSICAL BURNOUT AND FINANCIAL DEBT. THAT EXPERIENCE TAUGHT ME TO TRULY VALUE AND TAKE CARE OF MYSELF.

Q: WHAT IS A QUOTE YOU LIVE BY?

A: IT TAKES COURAGE TO BE HAPPY.

Q: IF YOU COULD GIVE ADVICE TO YOUR YOUNGER SELF, WHAT WOULD YOU SAY?

A: IT'S OK TO NOT HAVE A PLAN. LET YOURSELF PLAY AND WANDER FOR AS LONG AS YOU NEED.

CINTHIA BECAME A FIRST-TIME MOM IN 2019. BECOMING A MOTHER INSPIRED HER TO WANT TO HELP OTHER NEW MOMS DURING THEIR POSTPARTUM JOURNEY. FROM THIS INSPIRATION, A POSTPARTUM AFFIRMATION CARD DECK WAS BORN AND WILL BE LAUNCHING MAY 2020!
