Marisa Jiménez was born in a small town near Ávila where she learned from her relatives the value of family, healthy food and exercise. She was raised in Madrid, where she currently lives, and holds a graduate degree in sociology.

When her sister was diagnosed with advanced cancer in 2013, Marisa started to look for ways to complement the conventional medical treatments that her sister was receiving. This led her to learn and become a certified practitioner of the art of Jin Shin Jyutsu. Marisa also adopted a whole food, plant-based lifestyle.

Marisa feels a deep commitment to helping others. Through Jin Shin Jyutsu she has learned how to harmonize the vital energy which resides in the human body and which can be blocked by stress and daily difficulties. She understands and believes that we each are a union of body, mind and spirit.

Marisa has been part of International Integrators since the first immersion in Spain, and contributes her passions and talents to the Jin Shin Jyutsu part of the Living Whole experience.
