Macy Jozsef and her late husband Stephen Jozsef, M.D. founded Living From The Heart in 1988. At that time Macy was a 10 year breast cancer survivor. She began swimming with dolphins in 1987 and the first time she was in the water with dolphins was the first time since her cancer diagnosis that she "knew everything would be o.k." She was so impacted by her incredible personal experience with dolphins that she knew she must share this experience with others. From that inspiration, The Dolphin Experience, Living From The Heart was born. She has led over 2,500 people in human dolphin therapy.
Macy, founder of Dolphin Therapy organization, Living From The Heart. Pictured on the right are Macy and Amizcle in November, 2011. Amizcle has been one of Macy's closest friends for 17 years! He is the "granddaddy" of dolphin therapy, and loves doing that work!! He and Macy knew each other when he lived in Puerto Vallarta. Macy followed Amizcle to Dolphinaris in Cozumel, so that she could bring many more people to receive his incredibly strong sonar. He is very funny and makes everyone laugh --laughter, the best medicine!.
Living From The Heart, The Dolphin Experience is composed of a dedicated team of people who proudly strive to fulfill the organization´s mission in their every day life, as well as in their professional endeavors. Below you will find information about our staff´s profile and background.

She has 10 years of experience working with adolescents and families in various therapeutic settings in Mexico, The United States, and more recently, Costa Rica. She teaches people relaxation techniques through the use of the mind/body medicine modality called "biofeedback" and she practices medical biomagnetism.
Anny looks forward to continuing her education and plans on pursuing a graduate degree in the field of psychoneuroimmunology, aiming to conduct research that integrates various interests, as well as further validate in an empirical way the beneficial effects of dolphin therapy on nervous, endocrine and immune systems.
