We aim to provide individuals with access to health care procedures and treatments that are technologically available but financially are not, due to a lack of adequate health care coverage or personal finances.


Rescuing Health is the brainchild of Ana Gonçalves.

Ana Goncalves is a licensed massage therapist in Knoxville, TN. Ana has met many people she was able to help through massage therapy. But there have always been a portion of those clients who needed more; they lacked access to mainstream health care.

One particular client inspired Ms. Goncalves to start Rescuing Health.

According to Ana,

“This woman had so many toxins in her body from working under unacceptable hazardous conditions at a silk-screen printing shop in the early 1980’s, that she had no hair on her head, her skin color was not right, and she had neurological symptoms”
“She could not afford the 3 months of detox, even though she had health insurance; her insurance would not cover it and she was worried she would be fired from her current job if she took the 3 months off to get treatment.” Ana was moved and knew she had to do something about the way things were, and thus began her passion for starting Rescuing Health.
