The Body Awakener
I am Mario Sanchez Avila, a healer of the body and the mind. And the Soul. Connecting our own very existence to the natural flow of five elements that we are all made of. To many of my patients I am Mario Cosmico. And although I don’t see myself as a miracle maker, I always seek magic in everyBody, to bring out the inner Essence of those who reach my hands.
Over the past 12 years of travelling and working as a physiotherapist globally, I integrated skills and technique inspired by a deep-tissue body healing technique called Structural Integration as the foundation with my own authentic sense of a human body in its inside-out energy flow, and was able to apply all this experience. It can look similar to a kind of massage but it’s actually a much more profound approach, transforming your body with a process not just piece by piece, but as a whole, all together.
I chose to heal people because of my passion for life. After every accident that I encountered (and there have been many!) The Universe gave me everything that I needed to recover and to really feel what life is all about. As this changed my life, I started to initiate and facilitate this change in others.=
I first learned to heal myself.
Since the day I was born, I have had problems with my posture. So, I’ve been exposed to the need of healing myself practically since I was a kid. I had a misalignment and was twisted in my back. I wanted to fix myself so I can have more mobility and be accepted by my peers, and just to be connected with my body and do all kinds of sports I was so passionate about. When I was 16, I went all in for surfing. Waves and the ocean took my mind away. That was my first passion. After a while, I switched to dancing. My body knowledge and experience with movement carried on. I learned salsa and started teaching with my own program. I stayed in dancing for 10 years. It came to my attention how a lot of people were unable to move freely as if they were stuck in their bodies, born like that. And I used to think the same too, before I knew of the ways to open up myself. Even with my blockages I managed to become a professional salsa dancer. Now I realize how much one can do, achieve, overcome and move in ways that I didn’t think would even be possible. Of course, I had a lot of practice and training, it took courage and discipline, I was dancing every day for 8 hours, travelling to 80 different countries to teach and dance. And I reached my goal. Since then I always try to encourage the change in the way people express themselves through movement, because I truly know that the body tells more than words.
I had many accidents in my life which took me to very dark moments. And I mean Big accidents.. Serious car accidents that broke me apart more than once… Crashing in 10 meter waves when I was surfing. After one of them, my legs were paralyzed. My ability to walk was jeopardized. I searched for many ways to heal and become fit again. To walk!
After having tried every possible way of healing, what helped me most and relieved the consequences of this crash was Structural Integration. That led me to realize that the most important thing to discover and chase is not the cars, the places or the waves. It’s your own Body. After that accident I changed my life completely, I truly realized that it matters how you live, your body is not immortal. You have to connect with it and see it’s potential. Be the best version of You. That was the beginning of the transformation in my own story. I decided I shall pass this on to as many as I can. I became a healer.
Now that I have been in this for 12 years, I grow together with the personal stories of my patients' transformation and I feel confident about what I am doing. Before I have tried every massage you can imagine. Travelled to a lot of countries, learning about healing massage types. Back, when I was doing salsa, I was addicted to massages, I would get one every day. Every kind, with any kind of masseur. After discovering my own personal healing, I understood how important it is, who touches your body, so I select the people I want to be touched by. You can’t play with your body, you have to be very careful, so you don’t get your energy taken away.
We are all energy.
I get my energy from the major 5 Nature Elements that consist in all our bodies. I am mostly inspired by the Sun, the Waves and, of course, the people’s energy. When people hug me and I can feel their sharing, when they cry and say that I did something that no one could do in their whole life. That they feel alive. Like a new person. That means the world to me. To see that I am making a healing change. And it doesn’t matter what type of healing or technique I use, I always follow my intuition. Not some theory or a certain way, but always – what I feel. That is always what works. And to see that you changed someone’s life – that’s the best that I could ever wish for.
“Treating over 3000 patients around the globe has completely shifted my LIFE, BODY AND SEXUAL ENERGY. The transformations I have been honored to facilitate have been immeasurable. Thanks to my clients and the hundreds of people who approached me wanting to know how I do this magic, I created THE AWAKENING MOVEMENT. This is for everyone regardless gender and relationship status, who wish to raise consciousness, transform sexual energy, and serve a higher purpose. In doing so, we heal ourselves and our relationships with others, taking in respect and honoring the female body. I’m deeply grateful to see that my healing takes people to places they have never been before.”
