About Ana Marinho
Ana Marinho opened her private practice, Be Healthy, LLC. in 2015 and has served over 10 years as a licensed physical therapist, transformational coach and intuitive healer. Her unique approach of combining eastern and western modalities in a private, one-on-one setting has allowed her patients to sustain lasting change as she focuses on treating the whole body and not just the symptoms.
Ana became a licensed physical therapist in her home country of Brazil in 2007 and moved to Los Angeles, California the following year in order to further her education and expand her expertise as a physical therapist. Her profound interest in healing the whole-body led her to pursue certification as a Professional Coach and Energy Leadership Index (ELI) Master Practitioner which made an excellent addition to her already innate ability to heal energetically.
In 2018, Ana moved her practice to Charlotte, NC where she continues to provide unmatched experience, knowledge, and skill across multiple disciplines. She resides with her wonderful husband Chris and precious dog Pepe and is looking forward to exploring the beautiful state of North Carolina.

Ana's Personal Journey
When I was a teenager in Brazil, I discovered the remarkable capacity of combining body, mind, and soul for profound healing. It all began when doctors informed my family that my adopted brother Luis would never walk or live a normal life.
Luis had been adopted when he was two-weeks old. He was abandoned by his birth parents, extremely premature, and near death when my mother found him at an orphanage. At 9 months, Luis was diagnosed with cerebral palsy. He was unable to sit or hold his head up. My family was told he would be confined to a wheelchair. My mother, a well known intuitive healer in Brazil, knew that Luis would get better.
In fact, my entire family had faith that anything was possible but knew in our hearts that we were the ones that had to make it happen. We committed all of our time, energy, and resources to helping Luis.
We agreed that Luis’ body could heal itself if it was directed in the path towards healing. It was also essential to engage Luis’ mind and his spirit in total support of his healing. Luis did every therapy under the sun for the first years of his life.
At the age of 5, as I watched on beaming with joy, Luis took his first steps. Today, not only can Luis walk on his own, he is functional and is attending a university in Brazil.
This miracle changed my life forever too. Luis' journey made such a profound impact on me that I immediately knew it would become my career to educate people on the importance of connecting mind, body and soul in order to heal completely.
