Faith Healer "Curandera" Maria Contreras (CQ), 46, listens to one of her clients during an appointment Sunday July 3, 2005 at her home in Lakewood. At the age of nine when Contreras had a calling to leave her native El Salvador, she crossed the border to the neighboring country of Honduras landing at the home of an old Curandera who took her in; this is where she learned the craft. According to Contreras Curanderos practices vary from country to country. (MARIA J. AVILA/ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS) Maria Contreras (CQ/Reporter)
