Maybe you've heard the buzz... for a limited time, The Healing Arts Center's clinic is asking for volunteers to receive energy medicine sessions in our Master Track Clinic at no cost. Students of the Energy Medicine Master Track are gaining their clinical experience as part of their training to become Energy Medicine practitioners.
Led by headmaster and owner of HAC, Tom Tessereau, the Master Track spans 5 months and consists of 100 hours of training in Reiki and Pranic Healing. Clinic practice allows students to interact with new people and put into real practice all that they have learned so far in their training.

The HAC Vision of Wellness: An Energy Healer in Every Household
Massage Therapy offers many benefits for cancer patients. It can greatly reduce the stress and anxiety that often arises from having cancer and can reduce or eliminate the pain of chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Student therapists who participate in the clinic are among HAC's best, in fact, being chosen to participate in the HAC Free Cancer Clinic is considered honors status at graduation. Being of service is part of the HAC mission and our students and graduates deliver care through Reiki and light-touch massage to clients who truly can use healing touch. HAC has developed considerable expertise in restoring quality of life to cancer patients.
New developments in the Healing Art Center’s Free Cancer Clinic include:

Carrie Burnett is up to big things. Since graduating from The Healing Arts Center, she has started her own massage business, undertaken professional training towards receiving a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (SEP) certificate, is studying psychology at Webster University and has plans to pursue a doctorate in neuroscience. She has a passionate belief that the power of touch is not understood by science or therefore utilized to its fullest extent and has every intention of changing that through her current practice and future research.
Students in Cancer Clinic Training listen to Connie Smith share about her experience with breast cancer and how receiving massage and Reiki in the clinic provided her relief, calm, and a sense of well-being.
Ms. Smith has been coming to the Healing Arts Center’s cancer clinic since she started receiving treatment for breast cancer in 2016. She shared with the students in the Cancer Clinic Training about how restorative it was to come to the clinic and feel cared for and nurtured in contrast to her experience of beginning cancer treatment at the hospital. Connie provides a personal perspective in the training for students to understand what cancer clients are going through and the difference that the Cancer Clinic makes. Contributing to the student’s training is only one of the ways in which Connie has demonstrated her commitment to the clinic. She has become a very energetic advocate for Cancer Clinic because of the unique care that it provides for people dealing with the effects of cancer treatment, chemo, radiation, surgery.
For Most HAC Students, The Journey Begins and Ends In the Ocean of Reiki Room
Five years ago, The Healing Arts Center relocated from its former location on Big Bend Boulevard in Maplewood to its current location on Manchester Avenue in Warson Woods. At one time the old location had been a house and had a very homey feel to it, but the property owner sold critical parking space to the City of Maplewood and the building could no longer be used as a school. The new location is centrally located and, while not in the most picturesque building ever seen, has two very important features - it is very quiet and there is plenty of parking.
In preparing the space for the school a great deal of purification work had to be done. Flaming salt bowls were lit. Reiki blessings and Pranic Healing purifications were made. The space had last been used by Missouri College before that school moved to the Hanley Road location that closed last year. Now it was time for The Healing Arts Center to make the space its own.
Tummo is an ancient Buddhist yoga form that produces internal heat within the body that is caused by a combination of specific exercises and meditation processes. It is sometimes referred to as the yoga of “inner heat”, “psychic heat” or “mystic heat”. It is an essential skill for Vajrayana Buddhist practitioners who are seeking to perfect the “completion stage” of Vajrayana practice. Vajrayana tantric practice, generally speaking, involves a “creation stage” wherein the practitioner develops a vision of a deity, or “yidam” and a “completion stage” wherein the visualization of the deity is disassembled to the naked emptiness of natural mind. This seems simple, but it is actually quite challenging and most Vajrayana practitioners practice their entire lives to develop this skill.
Exemplary Master Track Students To Be Inducted Into HAC's Honor Society At Graduation December 15
The Order of Twin Hearts is HAC's honor society. Fittingly named after the Meditation on Twin Hearts for World Peace, The Order represents the highest acknowledgement that HAC gives to students. Students are selected by the faculty for this honor and are considered to be those who best reflect the commitment to skill and compassion taught at The Healing Arts Center. On December 15, 2017 in addition to five massage therapy students who will be inducted, we are proud to announce that six graduates from our first Advanced Energy Medicine Master Track will join this esteemed body of HAC alumni.
