Healing Sessions with Hachumak ~ Peruvian Healer
Wednesday, November 15 through November 19 Open to Close each day.
The private healing sessions include the laying on of hands to specific parts of the body.

This can have a clearing effect of past pains and darkness and reconnects the client’s inner self with the healing force of life. This is not just a release of old patterns but a true reconstruction of the inner world of the client in a more healthy way. Healings $250 for 1 ½ hours Call 231-941-5805 to schedule your appointment. Cash Only
