Metaphysical Arts

Wellness - Metaphysical Arts

"Metaphysical" - the term literally means beyond the physical. Metaphysical arts include those mystical practices, many of them thousands of years old, that often have no logical explanation to the average person. Many dismiss them because of lack of understanding but we see the powerful benefits in the recipients of such modalities as reiki, reflexology, astrology, energy balancing, psychic readings and more.
