A.R.E. is a curiosity. Edgar Cayce died before the end of WW II, and many of his ideas are more curious then convincing. But A.R.E. has managed to stay relevant with an emphasis on new age health care. Fascinating place to tour.

The ARE Health spa is a wonderful place to relax and unwind. I have enjoyed several treatments there including cranial sacral therapy, a colonic, massage and reflexology. The Professional Staff are healers and I recommend this without any reservation.
