I am Anne Caroline, the driving spirit behind UYB. While I hail from Brazil originally, San Diego has embraced me as its own since 2013. It was within the welcoming arms of this city that I crossed paths with my beloved partner, Alexandre. Together, in the tender year of 2023, we joyously welcomed our precious daughter, Antonella, into our lives.
At the age of 14, I gained a profound understanding of my older sister’s health condition (who had thyroid cancer around the age of 30). I witnessed my mother’s challenging journey balancing raising us, working, and undergoing many cardiovascular surgeries. Drawing inspiration, I began delving into holistic, alternative, and lymphatic studies, encompassing manual, mental, and spiritual therapies.
Drawing from generations of ancestral wisdom, I represent the fifth generation of my family, inheriting deep roots, natural healing gifts, and extensive knowledge.
I embarked on a journey of studying, taking courses, reading, and practicing everything I was learning until I was old enough to pursue a more in-depth specialization in college. I graduated in 2009 as a Esthetician, and Massage Therapist, followed by becoming a Holistic Health Practitioner and a Reiki Master. Holding licenses as a Massage Therapist in the US and Brazil, I am internationally certified in Europe and Asia. My expertise lies in Lymphatic System treatments, having trained at Université Bruxelles and developing my technique of sculptural massage, which I call Sculpting Lymphatic Detox.
Along my path, I encountered many exceptional mentors for whom I am eternally grateful. I had the opportunity to study in different places around the world, which not only broadened my opportunities but also my mind and, most importantly, my heart, preparing me physically and spiritually for what lay ahead.
My grandmother once told me: ‘When you feel something in your heart that will lead you to paradise, keep the path only for yourself, and take with you only those who truly fill your heart.’ And so, my journey went, keeping it to myself and knowing the right time to make it happen.
In this link, you can learn in detail about my journey of professional and intellectual growth in another country, the highs and lows I faced until I am where I aimed to be today.
Today, I have the honor of teaching other professionals everything I have learned throughout my life. And I am deeply grateful for my team of therapists who work alongside me.
