My fitness journey began at the age of 18, when I started experiencing pain and morning stiffness which worsened over time. I was eventually diagnosed with ankylosing spondylitis, an autoimmune disorder, which had a profound impact on my ability to work and my overall quality of life. After several years of progressively worsening symptoms and side effects from medications, I began incorporating fitness, nutrition as well as acupuncture and other TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) modalities into my life. My life was changed for the better and I decided to pursue a career that could enable me to help others struggling with medical conditions and poor lifestyle habits through starting their own fitness journey.

I discovered my love for fitness when I met David in Japan. My desire to learn more about wellness and exercise lead me to pursue a degree in Dietetics at UH Manoa. I firmly believe that food is an important component of any fitness regimen. Additionally, a proper diet can improve quality of life as well as manage symptoms of chronic conditions. As a future Registered Dietitian, I aim to incorporate my knowledge of nutrition and diet into training programs.
I was diagnosed with endometriosis in 2018. Before my diagnosis, I suffered from chronic leg pain. Exercise, yoga and self-myofascial release techniques helped with pain management. I believe that conditioning gained from exercise and a sound diet supported a swift recovery from a laparoscopic surgery that I underwent in 2018. Although exercise is not a magic bullet, I firmly believe in it’s anti-inflammatory effects and role in pain relief. A combination of proper diet and Chinese medicine supports the management of my symptoms and allows me to continue pursuing my fitness goals and academic pursuits. My hope is that I can improve people’s quality of life through nutrition and exercise.
Sandra first began her studies of alternative medicine in 2011 I when she started receiving weekly reiki sessions and began practicing yoga. These experiences profoundly affected her life so much that a year later she spent 6 months in India and Thailand practicing yoga daily and learning different energy healing modalities from wonderful teachers.
Later, she returned home to Peru and started treating patients offering energy healing sessions. Shortly after, life brought her to Hawaii where she began studying acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine. Sandra deeply believes body, mind and spirit are interconnected and that her purpose is to help others heal and reconnect with themselves.
