Happy Friday all!

So sorry I didn't post yesterday, had a 5 hour test to do at hospital and when I got home I was just tooo dang tired!
  As promised  I am going to share with you the healing practices around the world that have evolved to secure the well-being and good health of the population. These healing traditions are richly diverse but share many beliefs in the healing powers of nature, ourselves and higher beings

~Peace~
