Joe Dapuzzo: I am a Reiki master & massage therapist. I connect with fairys. I feel enerchi. I live to love & be love. I also connect with sunrises & the moon.
Ty Casey: My healing journey began in my early 20's when I was blessed to meet a Reiki instructor who helped me recover from life-long medical issues. I have been long interested in good health, wellbeing, the power of thought, and energy medicine and it's application. I've had the fantastic opportunity to practice energy healing in hospice and hospitals as well as in homes. This experience has allowed me to share healing with those who usually would not seek it out. It has also allowed me to cultivate a more scientific understanding of how energy medicine works within a person. Throughout my practice, I have witnessed many extraordinary things with Reiki, and it continues, to this day, to have me in awe of its beauty and power. From the unique perspective of marrying science and spirituality, I can comfort those who have never heard of energy healing. It is my mission to spread the word about Reiki, and it is my greatest hope that energy medicine will become a mainstay healing practice around the Globe one day.
