It started with a friend of ours who was in treatment for triple negative breast cancer. Dr. Elizabeth Stark had a PhD in chemistry, but worked venture capital deals for Pfizer, one of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies. Beth fought cancer for eight years while raising two young daughters. In order to prolong her life, she participated in numerous clinic trials around the country to allow her daughters to get as old and as strong a possible before she left this world. Frequently, her cancer treatment, mostly chemotherapy, seemed to be harder on her mind and body than the disease itself.
In 2015, Beth decided to try receiving complimentary therapy at The Healing Arts Center. She underwent biocranial therapy with HAC’s Tom Tessereau as well as
On May 20 & 21 HAC Hosts Neural Reset Therapy (NRT) for the Lower Body
Neural Reset Therapy for the Lower Body is one of three parts of the comprehensive NRT training program which also includes NRT for the Upper Body and Advanced NRT. For years, nationally recognized massage therapy instructor, Ralph Stephens, has worked with the developer of NRT, Lawrence Woods, to teach this extremely useful modality through these three workshops. HAC offers all three parts of the series each year.
The NRT Advanced Course will be at our campus in October and NRT for the Upper Body was held last February, 2018.
In ancient times lomi would go on for hours or even days. Then the Kahuna, a healer, and the recipient would go to the ocean to be restored by the gods. They would drink herbal remedies, be pounded, pinched, rolled, and sleep on the beach wrapped in kapa cloth(a traditional cloth made from pounded bark). The recipient would then be covered in sand and warm stones and watched over all night by their family. In the morning, there would be more ocean therapy and lomi. The process would continue for three to five days. Upon completion of the ritual, the kahuna would consult with the Spirit of the body. If all was in balance, Spirit would speak to one of the Kahunas and the lomi was "pau” (finished). Huge celebrations would ensue, and all the village would come to witness the re-united body and soul. A luau would mark the recipients complete body and spirit reunification. The reunion of body and Spirit would affect the entire village. One person’s healing was a healing for the entire tribe!

By that I mean that the invitation to go ever more deeply into the quiet within myself as I meld with my client, subjugating my ego in the service of the healing taking place under my hands has continued to spread into & inform all aspects of my life. Who among us wouldn’t benefit from easier access to patience, tolerance, & the ability to let things unfold in their own time?

HAC Takes The Plunge Into Combining Breath With Bodywork To Build A Better Wellness Professional
The excitement was palpable at The Healing Arts Center on Thursday, March 16 as one-by-one all twenty-five students took their places in an very large meditation circle. The River Room was packed. Some students had just graduated from HAC's massage therapy training program the week before. One had graduated from The Healing Arts Center in 1997. Some had trained in massage therapy in other schools, while several were not massage therapists at all. As one HAC graduate put it, "you might come to The Healing Arts Center's massage therapy program for vocational training so that you can get a job, but you come to this class because want to go as deep as you can. This class is for the committed." And so it is. Twenty weeks. 100 hours of instruction in a breath process that changes lives and blows consciousness wide open.
For HAC headmaster, Tom Tessereau, this is the culmination of decades of training with some of the pioneers of breathwork like Judith Kravitz. Tom is an avid practitioner of breathwork and considers it to be his most important health practice. In his career, he has taught thousands how to release emotional trauma and gain deep personal insight into parts of consciousness not easily accessible even for accomplished meditators. The health effects are outstanding. As Tom likes to say, "no one ever died from breathing to much." Basic Transformational Breathwork is a required subject in the Advanced Techniques course, part of HAC's legendary massage therapy program.
