“I was guided to working with Mina for my brand shoot and she really was the right person to capture my vision and bring it to life through both videos and photos. She is such a visionary and creative and you can absolutely see she embodies that in her personal life too.
Mina held my hand throughout the creative process, from helping me with outfits and creating the vibe for my brand. I loved that I walked in on shoot day totally pampered with hair and makeup.
I would highly recommend her if you are looking for outstanding quality. Everyone was impressed with our collaboration together!”
“When I became a new mom, I felt overwhelmed and I didn’t know who I was anymore. I started getting health symptoms such as anxiety and excema. I really felt guilty because I had a beautiful family. Well one day I came across this book. And it changed EVERYTHING. And it was all about slowing down and also connection with my body and my emotions…And that’s really what led me down the path to healing. I realized that every symptom I had reflected my challenges perfectly. My body was a mirror and it was showing me how to grow. Overtime all my symptoms went away.
So we’re not taught about this inner intelligence and sadly most people believe that their bodies are broken. The lower back can be all about feeling unsupported, the upper back can be all about protecting your heart, anger, betrayal.. and those are all just some of the stories that we hold in our body. Nothing inspires me more then watching someone’s heart just open up. When they start to appreciate. the messages that their bodies have been telling them all along. And starting to see their bodies with wonder and respect.
Just to watch someone step into more freedom, more love in their relationship, my magic in their life. I’m here to help you look at your body in a whole new way. To really see the intelligence that is behind the pain. So you can stop compromising who you are. It’s time to feel radiant, energized, and powerful. It’s time to be you.”
I had the pleasure of working with Margaret Pineda for the launch of her new Holistic Wellness business, Connect Heal Expand. Margaret is a Bio-energy Practitioner and Registered Massage Therapist who started as a massage therapist working at White Oaks Wellness and Massage in White Rock, British Columbia before starting her path into energy healing. Margaret is a bright soul, with a passion for helping others who are feeling lost on their spiritual path.
She specializes in helping burnt out parents, business owners, entrepreneurs, and individuals trying to do it all connect back to their bodies and creativity with bio energy therapy. Margaret Pineda is a multi-skilled facilitator to her clients. Margaret’s professional background includes: Certified Bio-energy Practitioner, Reiki Level 2 Certified, Over 10+ years as a Massage Therapist with post-graduate training in the nervous system, organs and fascia, studied inherited family trauma with Mark Wolynn, a world leader and pioneer in the field of generational trauma, Certified Gene Keys guide and a life-long student of this life-changing wisdom, and Conscious Manifestation Course with Eckhart Tolle.
When Margaret reached out to me she was looking to completely rebrand her website and really start showing up as the face in her business. Through detailed consultation, we looked through her social media, website, and all of her offerings to create the most comprehensive branding package. We made sure to design her session around the exact images and layouts she would need for her bio-energy site. This included video banners to help catch the attention of visitors on the site.
We also put together a promotional video sharing her story and life to really help Margaret’s new clients connect and get to know her.
Through getting to know her and listening to her story I get to see the living example of what she embodies. She told me about the stresses, and pain, and health symptoms she used to experience before learning about bioenergy healing practices. Her intuitive abilities help her connect to the needs of each of her clients.
