L K’ami B’ay A’kan | Infinite Health Healing Wellness LLC


The Aqua Chi Foot Bath is a water energy system that uses proven, advanced technology to help restore the body’s natural balance. This practice promotes vitality by restoring cellular energy. Many of the benefits can be attributed to the re-balancing of energy meridians and raising the bioelectrical potential of the body at the cellular level.

In her Aqua Chi Footbath Demonstration, L K’ami B’ay A’kan will teach us how this method can help you better understand your body.
