Happy New Year from Energia Nativa!

As the local representative for Ecoflow Power Stations, we would like to put some thoughts out there. Before you invest your hard earned money into an alternative energy system, be sure to ask the following questions. What is the brand I am considering – does it have a reputation? Can I read reviews? Is it self contained or do I need several parts and pieces to make it work? Can I really use all of my household appliances and tools, or only very low wattage ones? What is the warranty and is it realistic to think that service or replacement is available here? Ecoflow hits the mark on all of these and more. The Ecoflow brand is consistently in the top ten for reliability, innovative features and simplicity of use, and carries a two year warranty. The blackouts may be over – for now – but climate changes promise that uncertainty is our foreseeable future. Ecoflow promises a long term, reliable, solution.
Everyone’s needs are different, and for that reason we offer several options in the Ecoflow line, as well as other solutions for more commercial application. From a battery back up that will run your office equipment and localized lighting to whole house solutions (including the freedom to be completely off grid, should you choose to be), we have you covered.

Classes can be scheduled on flexible hours for individual sessions, or with small groups of other students. Additionally, this private 18-year language school can also help applicants to pass the examinations to obtain a drivers’ license (“Licencia de Conducir”). This is one of the top language schools I have ever attended!”

Recommended by Bartley

“My success in passing the test on my first attempt was primarily due to CCNations, their time, efforts and patience in guiding me towards success. I really couldn’t have done so well without them. For this reason, I highly recommend this school to anyone who needs help with Spanish in any capacity.”


Now, you can buy all our material…

1. A study booklet (in Spanish and/or in English),
2. Flashcards of Ecuadorian national symbols.
3. Flashcards of important people and dates, and some other information.

This holiday it’s time for a Christmas Miracle and we at FAAN Animal Welfare just received one!
We’ve been blessed with an incredible opportunity. A $20,000 double-matching grant from Fundacion FAAN’s mystery donor.

Here is our generous donor’s holiday gift: Every donation you make through the end of January will be matched for the dogs of FAAN as we race to build them the most modern animal shelter in Ecuador. Why now? We bought the land, and now it’s time to build, so we can move our dogs, while we focus on the prize of population prevention through spaying and neutering of Cuenca’s street dogs and community education.

For US citizens, we recommend using the credit card link or mail-in option to Fundacion Amici Cannis, our sister non-profit to receive a tax-deductible charitable donation receipt.
Note that your donation is for Fundacion FAAN.

Enjoy this holiday multi-media show created by the dogs of FAAN, (Foundation Familia Amor Animal) seeking a Forever Home.

Adopting a mature dog has so many benefits from knowing the temperament, skipping the puppy stage, less intensive care, connecting with a personality style that will match your lifestyle, and perhaps best of all the incredible gratitude rescue dogs seem to have for a second chance at their own home.

So enjoy the show and see if one of our FAAN dogs connects with you. There is such a thing as Love at first sight!

If you are unable to adopt at this time you can consider being a Secreto Amigo to a specific shelter dog. Just write us at, and tell us the name of the pup you would like to sponsor with food, medical supplies, and/or your monthly donation. We will send you a card from your FAAN shelter dog and you can even meet him or her in the New Year.
Thank you for helping FAAN foster a culture of adoption and rescue love.

A deep tissue massage is a type of massage that aims to invigorate and heal a person’s muscles and connective tissue.

Deep tissue massage works on specific areas of muscle tension in the body. Stress, bad postures, or intensive physical activity can cause contracted muscles; a good massage is the best way to treat this.

The main benefit of a deep tissue massage is that it can help relieve pain caused by stressed and strained muscles—the massage focus on targeting specific muscles and connective tissue.

A deep tissue massage can also help improve muscle function, which can be handy for athletes and anyone physically active. In addition, deep tissue massage treats the muscles as an entire unit; it can help improve how a person moves by improving their posture and alignment. It can help people with back pain, recent injuries, and sports-related injuries.

During the massage, I focus on your physical and emotional well-being, helping you to reach a deep level of relaxation that has long-term benefits even when the treatment is over.

This massage is highly recommended for people who need to restore their body balance due to nervous system disorders and different types of tension, including contracted muscles, stiffness, or aches and pains.

Schedule your in-home massage on the day and time that suits you best.

Massage costs USD 45 + $5.00 transportation fee
