From: Dr. Steven Bartz My background in medicine spans over 30 years. Based in hard sciences, my first job was as a respiratory therapist working primarily in critical care units and E.R.’s. My doctorate is in chiropractic. The concept of “Reiki” seemed rather fringe and suspect to me at first. Then I began to study this concept, I came to realize that this system is actually based on modern day application of quantum physics, meaning that all life is based on energy substrates. Reiki to my understanding is based on manipulating these energy fields in a manner somewhat similar to how I manipulate the joints to affect the neurological system. My skepticism was thoroughly addressed when out of desperation and suffering for several years with debilitating back pain, “Yes, the irony is not lost in that of a chiropractor with a bad back.” I sought the treatment of Reiki by Katherine McBride. I have to say I’m rather amazed that in only 3 sessions I experienced a 80% (at least) improvement in symptoms. Now, due to my own positive results, I refer my patients to her for therapy. She is now available to see and schedule appointments through my office and the feed-back I have received from these patients has been overwhelmingly positive. Sincerely, Dr. Steven Bartz D.C.

I have been a patient of Justin's for around two years and I feel it is time for me to truly express my gratitude toward Justin and the healing has provided for me through his acupuncture. Let me start by saying that I am a Registered Nurse in an ICU that practices primarily Western Medicine. I first presented to Justin with a multitude of symptoms from plantar fasciitis, chronic stomach and bloating issues, back pain, hip pain, depression and anxiety from the process of divorce and overall feeling of being run down and just tired all the time. I had already seen GI specialists and podiatrists, Internal Medicine Specialists, allergists, neurologists, chiropractors and a therapist weekly. I was beyond frustrated and became hopeless that I would never find relief or answers to my ailments and began to think it was possibly all in my head...part of that is true. Justin does more than just provide the typical needle therapy. Over the years he has treated me with acupressure, cupping, auriculotherapy, healing touch/Reiki, and the other traditional eastern modalities that I don't even know how to pronounce. But one skill I am most grateful for is his ability to guide and teach while I'm receiving the treatment. For me it is like a meditation and it was/is this process that I feel helped me to truly start healing. Justin guided me to pay more attention and recognize my thought patterns and would shed light onto how these thoughts impact my body and daily activities. He teaches me about the channels and the Chi, about different types of beneficial herbs, teas and foods I can incorporate and if your lucky he will share one of his original jokes. I could tell you the exact treatment I received that I feel changed my life. It was the moment that I finally gave in and stopped getting in the way of my own healing. I let my guard down, I cried for almost an hour and I "let it go". Justin had asked me if I was holding onto identities that didn't serve me or if I was expressing my true self to the world. I faced my reality and gave permission to myself to become whole again and to be me. In our few years together this happened only three months ago. From that moment on I became aware that it really was a patient/provider relationship. Sure I would get relief every time I received a treatment, but now actually trying to focus on the needles and the energy flow, clearing my mind and inviting the healing to occur it is a completely different experience. I have had enormous relief from my pain, eczema went away, depression is gone and I've stopped seeing a therapist, my GI issues are under control, I sleep better and I feel like I am me and I am enough. I do still have my Western Medicine MD's that I see but I know that I would never have come this far in my journey of healing and self reflection were it not for Justin's wealth of knowledge, kindness, empathy, education and obvious desire to help his patients on their path to optimal health and self discovery. I will be forever grateful.
Danielle at Sacred Sakura Bodywork is a miracle worker! Every time I see her, she always exceeds my expectations, and I feel like I am not only healing on a physical level, but also emotional, spiritual and mental... She discovers my "hidden treasures" of tucked away stagnant energy and stubborn muscle fibers - I sometimes didn't even know I had tension in the places she finds! Something about her special technique and her healing touch just resets me on all levels. Her massages are like natural medicine for my body, mind and spirit... I feel so safe and so comfortable in my sessions with Danielle, that sometimes I even let out a good cry and it feels amazing! Danielle is great about holding the space for healing and she's just got such a positive vibe, you can't help but be healed by her glowing presence. I have recommended my neighbor to Danielle as well, and she commented that Danielle has been able to save her back more than other body therapy she's been trying out. We both drive all the way from Ramona (45 min drive) to see Danielle because she is so stellar and one of a kind! I highly recommend this Beautiful Healing Gem!

Bo has treated my 11 year old daughter for a variety of sports-related injuries. The most significant of those was a severe ankle sprain. After acupuncture reduced the swelling, traditional medicine's approach was to put her on crutches, anti-inflammatories and RICE. After one treatment with Bo, she ditched the crutches, was putting weight on the foot, and then played in her soccer game 3 days later. Bo really understands athletes, the pressure they are under AND the injuries they sustain. I have sent several people to Bo and they have reported similar results. I recommend him to anyone and everyone.

I found myself in intensive care once again, on oxygen with double pneumonia that wasn't responding to medication when Gosia, looking like the angel she is, showed up at my bedside. Her heartfelt compassion and healing hands pulled from me a deep-seated grief of which I'd not been aware. I quietly fell asleep. The next day my doctor came by to shake my hand and whisper in my ear "We thought we were loosing you..." and then exclaimed aloud "Look! All your tests are normal! It's a miracle." Whether your situation is life threatening or just a matter of bliss, Gosia is an Earth-Angel you don't want to miss.
