Master Jose Lopez Sanchez

His Shipibo name is Sany Meny "the messenger". Working with plants for 28 years.

Maestra Ynes’ son, José was born in the native community of Roaboya and spent much of his upbringing learning from his grandfather, the highly-respected Onanya healer, José Lopez. Jose was named after his grandfather so that when he passed away he would inherit all his knowledge and wisdom of shamanism and traditional medicine.

At age 7, Jose began to train his body, mind, and spirit to prepare for his first diet. At 10yrs old he began his one year diet with one of the most powerful Master trees, shihuahuaco, and successively dieted two other equally powerful trees, niwe rao and noya rao between 11-12 years old.

When José turned 13, his beloved grandfather passed away and went on to continue his apprenticeship with Maestra Ynes. At 16 he began to heal the local community in his village and continued to do so in the city of Pucallpa and across Peru. He now dedicates his time working alongside Maestra Ynes.

Through his powerful astral visions, Jose is able to unlock and release negative energies held in the body and spirit, to harmonize and align the individual. In spite of his incredible power and knowledge, he stays humble with the perspective that “we always have new things to learn until we die”.

Fabiola Name Almanza

Hypnotherapist, Humanistic/Transpersonal Psychology, FMCA

In my years of choosing a career I knew that I wanted to study something related to healing, but the medical career did not convince me 100%, so I decided on psychology.
Later I studied the specialty in  Person-Centered Approach, in Gestalt psychotherapy, energy psychotherapy and transpersonal psychology. 

In 2019 I became certified as a Rapid Transformational Therapy clinical hypnotherapist with Marisa Peer and I am currently part of her team of trainers. 
Today it is clear to me that somehow my Higher Self was guiding me towards the vocation of service to healing for which I felt the desire, but at an even deeper level than traditional Medicine. 

I am currently studying the fifth course at the College of Consultants and Communicators of Semiology of Daily Life, convinced that if a person manages to raise their consciousness, they are contributing to raising the consciousness of all humanity.

Rapid Transformational Therapy®️ encompasses many of the positive aspects of hypnosis and hypnotherapy that are known to produce a transformative effect on clients. RTT®️ goes further, diagnosing what works with clients to build a new therapeutic approach. Unlike traditional hypnotherapy, RTT®️ is not based solely on positive reinforcement. Too often, this is the only approach for hypnotherapists.


While using correct, up-to-date, and relevant language when speaking to oneself is certainly a part of any transformation, it serves more as a reinforcement of progress, rather than a catalyst for it. RTT®️ therapists are able to make breakthroughs through hypnosis that would not be possible if they were simply trying to reach your subconscious mind through altered language and self-talk. Your RTT®️ therapist is equipped with a variety of techniques and tools that are crucial in not only teaching you how to communicate with your subconscious mind, but also directly accessing and clearing any blockages that may be there.
