Health care today, for the most part, is incomplete.

The system is set up to treat symptoms but seldom the underlying causation of physical, mental and emotional pain and dysfunction. Hands-on healing modalities have been used for thousands of years to bring relief and treatment to people in pain. These low-tech, low-cost treatments have brought comfort, healing and loving kindness to generations of people who have used them. 


The Raffa Urban Sweat experience is an opportunity to revisit the wisdom, reflect on what we are prioritizing in our lives and how we are living to bring us back to being whole in body, mind and soul. Nobody is going to do it for you. You must take the courageous step to develop awareness, which encourages change in a positive direction. 


Our time is money. Society has moved towards high-tech, invasive and pharmaceutical-based attempts to solutions for our body’s imbalances. I strongly believe we need to take a breath and observe the way we are living our lives. The food we eat, the thoughts we think, the amount of exercise or lack thereof, all contribute to the stresses we endure and the connection to the experience of our lives. Only when we are in true balance-mentally, emotionally, spiritually and physically-will we return to the true essence of ourselves. 


Pain is not a way of life but a wake up call to the urgency to live in-balance and fully in the present moment.”
