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, 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 designed as an opportunity to revisit that wisdom, reflect on what we are prioritizing in our lives and how we are living, as a way 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 and make the hard choices which encourages change in a positive direction.

Time is our greatest asset. No one knows for sure how much time we have in this life; our time is money. Society has moved towards high-tech, invasive and pharmaceutical-based attempts to solutions for our body’s imbalances, illnesses and dis-ease. I strongly believe we need to take a deep 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 daily lives. Only when we are in true balance-mentally, emotionally, spiritually and physically-will we return to the true essence of ourselves.

A human being not a human doing.

Life is a marathon not a sprint. Slow down, take a breath and observe the way you feel, the way you are living and the way you are showing up for yourself, your family and the community. The way you show up for one thing is the way you show up for everything.

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.
