Our Mission

Holy Healing Bali was founded, simply put, to bring people to Bali, pre-COVID of course! The magic of this enchanted island is like nothing else we ever experienced. After traveling to Bali several times, we declared ourselves as “Bali Ambassadors.” We know the island, we know the people, the best local guides, healers, and accommodations. We’ve “been there and done that” and have worked out all the kinks and learning curves. Bali is not a vacation…when you do Bali with us it’s a transformation!

Now, in this post-COVID world we now live in, we have pivoted from Bali, creating retreats and workshops locally in Arizona. We will return to Bali when safe and allowed to do so, but in the meantime we feel oddly blessed by the experiences of 2020. They forced us to “bring the work” stateside, which so many people had asked us to do previously. We had just been so busy in Bali, we hadn’t made the time. Following international border closings, we have now created retreats & workshops in Flagstaff, Phoenix, Payson, Rocky Point Mexico, and Mexico City. We are excited to continue expanding our reach and adventurous offerings! We believe that travel should transform you! Sending you home more liberated, happy, and with effective tools to create the life you’re meant to live. No one needs our retreats and workshops, but EVERYONE deserves them! Holy Healing Bali is led in partnership by Co-Founders Rachelle Acevedo and Nicole Rideau.


Who We Are


Rachelle Acevedo is a Certified Life, Liberation & Pleasure Coach. She has spent the last nine years and over 1,500 hours studying men, women, transformative personal development and healing. She has also studied under a Traditional Balinese Healer since first meeting him in 2012. She is passionate about assisting people in accessing their FULL potential and greatest fulfillment. She founded Holy Healing Bali along with Nicole Rideau in 2016 after retiring from her successful, yet unfulfilling, corporate career. Rachelle leads group workshops, organizes and facilitates domestic and international retreats, and provides one-on-one coaching for men and women in person and virtually. Rachelle spends her days playing monster trucks and t-ball with her four year old son, who she’s over the moon about. She contributes so much of her own development to what she has coined a “productively failed” marriage.  That “productively failed” marriage illuminated and made it crystal clear what she wants, deserves and desires in her next partnership. Which she then manifested only eight months later! She is committed that any and all of her own personal challenges, suffering and life lessons are not experienced in vain, and they serve others in her sharing, leading, and coaching.

NicoleNicole Rideau is a Spiritual Advisor, Psychic Medium, and Energy Worker also born and raised in Phoenix. She was introduced to the healing power of Bali in 2015. A lunch date, with the well-traveled Rachelle, opened her eyes to the possibilities she was unable to see for 14 years. Like many, the titles of wife and mother had consumed her existence. We’re sure you’ve seen the messy bun mom running the carpool to school, volleyball, and football, her days filled with laundry, and nights spent reading about adventures in healing. Her weekends were spent helping others heal through massage, energy healing, and readings. As her children grew older and more independent she realized it was time to chase her dreams. With the help of an amazing tribe of healers, she took a leap of faith, jumping into a partnership with Rachelle that would lead her to Bali, leaving her forever transformed. One week after she returned home, her 11-year-old daughter squeezed her tightly and said “I don’t know what happened in Bali but you are so different. A good difference, like a bigger happy.” To which she replied, “That’s the power of Bali and exactly why I want nothing more than to share that with the world.” She is now equally as excited to bring the uniquely holistic work she and Rachelle co-lead to Arizona for women and men alike!
