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.

We've had several couples massage here. Very clean, friendly, professional staff. An awesome place to visit. They have very good food (and drink) for sit down and carry out. Don't forget to take the time to walk the labyrinth!
