Call Jeff at 508.237.9000 to schedule an apt. Bruce Frazier, Crystal Healer, is a fifth generation psychic medium. He has known of his gifts since age 5. At age 24 he was visited by an Angel who told him he was a healer. When Bruce was 26 years old Etel DeLooch, founder of the NJ Society of Parapsychology, opened Bruce's third eye. After a serious work related accident in 1992, most of Bruce's injuries went undetected for just under 2 years. At that time, his heart failed and he underwent emergency open heart surgery, which was successful, but a day later, Bruce contracted pneumonia and went into a coma. As he lay unconscious in the hospital, his spiritual master appeared at the foot of his bed and asked him, "Have you filled your reason and purpose of this incarnation? Bruce replied "I do not know". The master then introduced him to an Atlantean Crystal Doctor, who took Bruce's ethereal body on a six day journey to Atlantis. Bruce's physical body remained on full life support at the UVA Medical Center during that time. A friend was called to come to speak to Bruce while he lay in a coma. She brushed his hair back from his face and spoke "You are loved and appreciated". At that moment Bruce opened his eyes, returned from his Atlantean journey and awoke from the coma. He healing work began soon after his return from the hospital. To Book Appointments with Bruce call Jeff at 508-237-9000

Acupuncture is a complete system of medicine based on principles which have been used in the Orient for the last 4,000 years. It is a form of Oriental medicine that works with the natural energies inherent within all living things to promote the body's ability to heal itself. Acupuncture works with life force energy (or Ki) which is the vital energy that created the body originally and keeps it alive and functioning properly. These subtle electrical charges flow through the body in what are known as pathways or meridians. An acupuncturist finds disharmony and treats the individual accordingly. Any health problem, disease, or illness may be treated by acupuncture. It is very well known to alleviate chronic and acute pain or discomfort and has been very successful with fertility issues.
Chinese herbs are sometimes prescribed by themselves or in addition to the acupuncture treatment. They can be animal, mineral or vegetable based although the majority are vegetable sources. Leaves, flowers, stems, twigs, roots, tubers, rhizomes and barks are some parts used. When taking herbs, if there are any side effects, let your practitioner know so they can adjust the formula. There should be no side effects when taking chinese herbs.
Arthur is available by appointment at the Life Center on Mondays and Thursdays and at Acupuncture Associates of Cape Cod in Provincetown on Tuesdays and Fridays.
For an appointment please call 508-255-5752 x 3.
