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:
One For The Record Books: HAC Graduate Matthew Tarrillion Is The First To Earn Every Honor Offered At The Healing Arts Center
This past Friday the Healing Arts Center graduated a group of outstanding students from the Massage Therapy Training Program. Among them, one student stood out for his excellence. Matthew Tarrillion received every award that the Healing Arts Center offers, plus a student scholarship from Massage Envy.
The Healing Arts Center is proud to announce the newest inductees into The Order of Twin Hearts. Five students who have met the requirements to be eligible for this honor have been chosen. It is HAC’s highest acknowledgement of a student. Order of Twin Hearts members embody the spirit of the Healing Arts Center in their being, their skills, and their passion for healing. Eligible students are nominated by faculty and also must meet minimum requirements for attendance.
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.
At graduation on March 16, HAC will honor four outstanding students by inducting them into the school's honor society.
The nominations are in, and four students are recognized for embodying the ideals of the Healing Arts Center.
On March 16th, 2018 the Healing Arts Center will host the Red Robe Ceremony and present graduation certificates to students who have recently completed the school's Massage Therapy Training Program (MTTP).
The inductees for Winter, 2018 are:
The Order of Twin Hearts (OTH) takes its name from the Meditation on Twin Hearts for World Peace originally taught by Pranic Healing Grand Master Choa Kok Sui. Master Choa was one of the most important teachers of HAC Headmaster, Tom Tessereau. Tom was a member of Master Choa's inner circle of disciples and it is the teaching on Twin Hearts that has become the foundation of the spirit of The Healing Arts Center. The Twin Hearts meditation links the crown and heart chakras (the Twin Hearts) to draw down divine energy into a human being to empower compassion and healing on a global level.

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.
The Votes Are In, Five Have Been Called
On October 6, 2017 the Healing Arts Center will present graduation certificates to fourteen students who have recently completed the school's Massage Therapy Training Program (MTTP). As is the tradition at HAC, each student has overcome their personal challenges required to join the ranks of HAC's unique community of hand healers. No one graduates from HAC without being confronted by something and overcoming it. Personal transformation is the hallmark of HAC education and is considered a necessary quality for those seeking to use massage therapy basis for holistic wellness care.
