Certified Energy Practitioner

Dan is a multi-talented individual embodying the essence of a modern-day Renaissance man.  He seamlessly transitions between roles as a teacher, spiritual counselor, accomplished musician, philosopher, businessman, and a certified energy practitioner who incorporates muscle testing and tuning forks as part of his daily life.

His journey with music began at a young age, and he mastered four instruments – drums, trumpet, guitar – before finding his true passion for the piano. The early loss of his mother, a deep curiosity about the mysteries of existence, and the transformative influence of music in his own life converged to instill in him an innate empathy, a profound understanding of human experiences, and a fervent desire to comprehend the concealed dynamics influencing one's wellness and well-being. These factors collectively steered him toward becoming a certified energy practitioner.

Endowed with natural gifting, acute sensitivity, and a wealth of real-life experiences, his colleagues and spouse frequently refer to him as the “How Do You Know That?" Intuitive.
