  1. A new site, http://www.Somibo.com: The soul mind and body connection, allows wellness related businesses to list themselves and be rated and reviewed by "customers." I think it could be helpful.

  2. I have a friend who has problems with his neck and back and on top of seeing a chiropractor, he gets acupuncture regularly.
