    How often should one receive this type of treatment?

    After an initial visit, your practitioner or the doctor on staff will discuss how you feel and your goals. People receiving integrative therapies have reported the most healing benefits. We encourage patients to receive 4-5 sessions within 3 weeks to open up and begin balancing their energy system.

    Are the seams very noticeable?

    First of all, we try to give you the least number of seams possible. This varies depending on the size of the slabs and your particular counter top or island design. Seams are approximately 1/16” in width. They are done with epoxy and mixed with stone dust along with a color pigment to match your stone.

    I’ve heard that granite breeds bacteria, is that true?

    We think that rumor was started by the “solid surface” manufacturers. Granite does not generate or “breed” any more or any less bacteria than your average countertop surface.
