What are people saying?

"I just wanted to thank you again for the reiki session you provided me with this morning. I felt much less stressed, wonderfully relaxed and amazingly free of back pain for the better part of the day despite doing more driving than I have done in awhile and standing on my feet in heels for nearly four hours this afternoon. I just loved the biomat and have nothing but good things to say about my first reiki experience! I really appreciated your gift!"
