About the Founder

Daniela Masaro
Daniela-Masaro-GardenDaniela Masaro is a professional holistic therapist, shamanic healer, intuitive life coach, teacher, and the founder of Ouroboros Wellness, a private holistic practice in Guelph, ON.

From infancy, Daniela struggled with several health challenges. Her mother, who was raised in Italy in a tradition of natural remedies and folk medicine, often used the knowledge and wisdom she had gained from her mother and her mother before her, to help her family with whatever ailed them. Unfortunately, as western medical doctors discouraged the use of natural medicine, Daniela’s mother began to adopt the use of modern medicine. As a result, Daniela was pumped full of antibiotics and medication time and time again, resulting in a further weakened immune system and a lifetime struggle with several health challenges.

After suffering her own illnesses and disorders and seeing so many loved ones become sick and pass on well before their time, Daniela finally decided to take matters into her own hands. She became discouraged with western medicine, yet was inspired to learn more about natural and holistic practices. While she shied away from modern medicine and mainstream doctors, she began to immerse herself in the fascinating world of alternative medicine and natural therapies, devouring every book she could get her hands on. She took course after course, studied with professionals and well-respected elders, and travelled across the globe to learn about various healing modalities from an array of different cultures.  She met with medicine men, medicine women, and shamans from Africa to South America, and was fortunate enough to study with indigenous Mayan and Aztec healers in Mexico to learn the ancient art of traditional healing.

Today, her passion for learning and her thirst for knowledge live on. She has sought to revive the tradition of healing passed on to her from her mother and the generations before her and she continues to take classes and participate in workshops to expand her knowledge and experience, while spending time with like-minds and spirits to share experiences, stories, and insights.

After adopting a healthier and organic lifestyle and experiencing holistic therapies and alternative medicine first hand, Daniela Masaro is a testament to the powerful healing capabilities of all things natural. It is now her pleasure to impart all that she has lived and learned—her wisdom, knowledge, and experience—with all those who seek it, and she is proud to be able to help others through their own personal healing journey.

“May we tread the path to wellness together in love and light.” ~Daniela Masaro
