Fernando was born and raised in Bogota, Colombia and relocated to Miami, Fl in 1989. He was first introduced to Reiki in Mexico City, Mexico in the mid 90’s while he was stationed there for a Multinational Company. He was a corporate C level executive for many years and lived in multiple countries, but always knew there was more than the corporate environment and while he practiced Reiki amongst friend and family since 1995, it was not until years later that he decided to pursue his Master/Teacher level and dedicate more of his efforts to sharing the beauty of Reiki with others outside his immediate family and close friends. It only took a few years of Fernando seeing what amazing results his clients were getting and the feedback from his students, for him to make the decision to leave the corporate world to start a holistic wellness center in Miami Fl: Wellness Room Miami, where he offers Reiki classes, sessions and hosts Reiki circles in a professional, comfortable and relaxing environment. In addition to Reiki, Fernando practices meditation and is a certified Akashic Readings Consultant. He is presently working towards obtaining new and exciting certifications to further complement the different practices offered at his space. Fernando is a full time resident of Miami, FL where he lives with his family.
