About

 

My name is Nathasya.

 

I founded AKKU with the goal of guiding others to live a life they truly desire, focusing on both the physical and emotional aspects. I look at a person as a whole. I specialize in guiding people to overcome their inner critics, build self-confidence and love themselves again. I work with people to support them becoming the best version of themselves: better health, a strong mindset, an open heart, and a healed soul

 

I look forward to using the experiences and knowledge I've learned, to work with you integrating healthy habits into your life. 

Hi, welcome! I believe you are here not by chance, but for a deeper reason.

Nathasya, Dip Hyp, CHNGH

The Passion in Me

Born in Jakarta, Indonesia. Grew up in Luanda (Angola), Jakarta (Indonesia), Florida (U.S), Madrid (Spain). Living in Barcelona (Spain). 

Saw and experienced different spectrums of life. 

 

Always have been a curious person. Observed and learned how people behave, express themselves, and solve problems differently.

 

All of that sparked an interest in me to learn how we humans are. 

We are all unique individuals.

Unique individuals who function differently (physically, emotionally and mentally).

 

Our body respond to a certain type of food differently.

We approach a problem differently.

We see life from a different angle.

And yet, we are all human beings.

 

Though the fire in me was always there, I did not truly realized it until I had my own experience of being in the lowest point of my life--that "dark" moment.

I went searching for my true purpose. 

 

My Story 'The Wounded Healer'

I have not always been at the peak of my health. In fact, a few years ago, I've hit rock bottom.

I know what hopeless feels.

I know what it feels like thinking to have lost everything and there is no way out.

I know that tight feeling you get in your chest.

I know what it feels like to be tired of taking one pill after another trying to be healthy.

I know what it feels like to live with a nightmare. 

Most of all, I know what it feels like to be lost and searching for an answer.

 

I used to live in constant fear.

In the past, I went through some traumatic life events. I experienced bullying, anxiety and depression, which has also led me to have unhealthy habits and a weak immune system, hence being exposed to bacteria and viruses easily. I did not fully pay attention to what I was eating. Although growing up, I have always loved eating fruits and vegetables, that did not compensate to the amount of junk food I used to eat. I was addicted to sugar and processed foods. 

In school, I was part of a dance team. Every week or month, I would also go to the gym. But despite my efforts, I was still weak. I would get picked last for a team in physical education class. I could not manage my breathing properly when exercising. During that "girl's time of the month", it was almost always a nightmare. I would get horrible pain and fever until I could not get out of bed.

I have also tried some fad diets and diet products, blindly thinking they would accelerate my health. But of course, they did just quite the opposite. Or some diets would last just for a season.

 

I have always been pretty skinny, but skinny did not mean I was healthy on the inside.

 

The struggle with my emotional and physical health led me to a turmoil.

 

 

Healers heal themselves first before healing others.

 

When I hit "rock bottom", it was in fact a turning point of my life. I did not realise it until afterwards, of course.

 

After being so long in rock bottom with dark clouds over me, I grabbed darkness by the hand and placed it right in front of me, trying to understand it better. I said "that's enough."

It was the moment I started my self-healing and self-discovery journey.

I started to learn meditation and practiced it every morning and night.

I met people from around the world who has kindly shared me their stories and perspectives of how to approach an issue. I have read some inspiring books. I have tried many different kinds of holistic therapies ranging from EFT tapping therapy, crystal healing, sound bath, Reiki, kinesiology, Traditional Chinese Medicine and some others. 

 

Each time I did all of that, I was a step closer to defeating darkness. A step to understanding myself. Slowly the darkness disappeared and turned into light. The patient left and the inner healer awakened.

I am now continuously living a conscious life of optimal health and balance. I continue self-development practices up until today. Every day, I am growing because I believe it is necessary for one to continuously practice self-care.

A self-discovery journey is an on-going journey as we continue to grow and learn about ourselves every day.

 

After having had my own experiences in some of the holistic therapies as I was overcoming my own battles, I became interested in learning more about the holistic health world. According to Cambridge, holistic means "dealing with or treating the whole of something or someone and not just a part", which basically outlines that everything is connected. 

I realised how this approach has helped me until it has inspired me to also shine the light on others. 

 

I share with you my story to show you that I too have had my flaws. You are not alone. And yes, life can be hard at times and though, you may have different stories than I, no matter what it is, do not let your pain harden you, but rather make you stronger. Acknowledge your flaws and rise through it.

I'm here to guide you through this.
