Doctors won’t make you healthy. Nutritionists won’t make you slim. Teachers won’t make you smart. Gurus won’t make you calm. Mentors won’t make you rich. Trainers won’t make you fit. Ultimately, you have to take responsibility. Save yourself. - Naval Ravikant
Acupuncture is an age old healing technique, clinically proven as an effective treatment for chronic pain, insomnia, anxiety, addiction and a host of other ailments.
Acupuncture is part of the ancient practice of Traditional Chinese medicine. Traditional Chinese medicine practitioners believe the human body has more than 2,000 acupuncture points connected by pathways or meridians. These pathways create an energy flow (Qi, pronounced "chee") through the body that is responsible for overall health. Disruption of the energy flow can cause disease. By applying acupuncture to certain points, it is thought to improve the flow of Qi, thereby improving health.

by Dan Vasquez
Reiki is a complementary treatment, meaning that it compliments any other treatment you may be receiving. The receiver’s energy frequency gets raised and with this increase of their vital life force (Qi) the body relaxes and harmonizes. Whatever the case, one needs to ask themselves; compared to other types of natural or complimentary treatments, what have you got to lose by trying a Reiki treatment for yourself or loved one? For your pet?
The Reiki treatments by Dan are unique to him and every client. As this treatment is purely energy based, there is no physical contact. It is recommended that shoes are removed but that is optional. Some clients will feel the energy coursing or tingling/buzzing in parts of their body, and in some cases they will feel nothing at all.
