Morella Lascurain graduated Magna Cum Laude from medical school in 1993. Early in her career as a medical doctor, she became fascinated by the role of a person’s subjective experience of life in the occurrence of health and illness. Over the years, she understood that conventional medicine was limited to providing symptomatic solutions to illness, so she began her quest for more profound ways of healing. Having completed postgraduate studies in MindBody Healthcare at AUT University and trained in Clinical Hypnotherapy, NLP, Strategic Coaching and Ayurveda, she has been practicing Mind Body healthcare since 2004. She is a co-founder and director of Mother-Well Holistic Health, an integrative multidisciplinary healthcare centre in Mt Eden that has been offering general medical services, herbal medicine, naturopathy, acupuncture, osteopathy, homeopathy and Mind Body medicine for over 14 years. She is also an international speaker and an experienced educator
