is located in Redding, California at 3304B Bechelli Lane
The Center for Meditative and Healing Arts is dedicated to improving and promoting physical, mental, emotiona, and spiritual health and well-being. 

Basic Concept:  Tension and stress affect us physically and emotionally and produce toxins in our bodies.  Without proper physical and emotional release, these accumulated toxins form various sizes of clusters affecting our internal organs and our physiology, causing blockages in our energy flow and thus creating aches and pains, contributing to if not causing various illnesses.  Proper relaxation techniques restore the natural flow of energy throughout the entire body, thus reducing or hopefully eliminating physical and emotional stress and tension.
