These are the ONLY years a breathwork training of this magnitude has happened in St. Louis!
And it’s happening again beginning August 8, 2019 and we have revised and expanded the training to make it the best to date!
There are only a few spots remaining in the class and it will be maxed out soon.
Back By Popular Demand: Transformative Breathwork Master Track
In 2017, The Healing Arts Center offered transformative breathwork training for the first time in a decade. This unique 100-hour course taught once a week over 20 weeks consists of 80 hours of class room instruction and 20 hours of clinical training in one of the most powerful healing modalities in complementary and alternative medicine. While HAC does not offer this course every year, it is deeply committed to bringing Transformative Breathwork training to health and wellness professionals and the community at large. The course is inspired by the work of some of the nation's greatest breathwork pioneers like Judith Kravitz, Leonard Orr, Tom Goode, and Dr. Stanislav Grof. Healing Arts Center Headmaster, Tom Tessereau, is a direct student of both Kravitz and Goode, and teaches the Transformative Breathwork Master Track, guiding students through the curriculum to be certified breathwork facilitators.

Injury Recovery Massage Toolkit - July 21 & 22, 2018
by Terrie Yardley-Nohr, LMT
Massage therapists are faced with clients every day that have been injured in some way and are seeking help from pain and dysfunction. A therapist is faced with figuring out what is wrong and what to do about it. One of the biggest challenges for new therapists in the field is how to address the client’s needs and provide relief. This boils down to two specific skills: assessment and appropriate therapeutic response. Obviously, skills are developed over time and through experience. Additional training, however, can radically accelerate the development of a skill set.
HAC Invites Potential Energy Healers To "Energy Essentials" - A Preview Of The Advanced Energy Medicine Master Track, July 21
The HAC Vision of Wellness: An Energy Healer in Every Household

Three Weekends A Year, Three Related Topics, One Comprehensive Skill Set
The Healing Arts Center is launching a new series of workshops designed to provide advanced level training in a format that supports the working therapist. The idea behind Pro Tracks is to broaden the therapeutic reach of massage therapists to expand client wellness services so as to reach a larger client base or improve employability at a higher wage rate.
The Healing Arts Center takes the view that massage therapists are underused in the arena of wellness and promoting health in our culture. HAC does not teach pamper massage, but rather focuses its knowledge, experience and skill toward developing the massage therapist as a "first responder" in the quest for health and wellness. For this reason our primary massage therapy training program is directed on pure healing modalities that alleviate stress and anxiety, treats acute and chronic pain at its source and provides the myriad of other benefits that therapeutic massage is known to provide. In fact, "therapy" is the whole point of this healing art.
body via an electromagnetic field meaning that it is the BEMER signal and not the electromagnetic field that acts as the “agent” that stimulates the circulatory response. BEMER is designed to improve circulation thereby supporting the body’s natural self-regulating processes. Blood is the body’s universal means of transport. Oxygen, nutrients, chemical messengers (e.g., hormones) and immune cells are all transported through our blood. When our body’s cells, tissues and organs are adequately nourished and metabolic waste products are removed, our bodies become healthy and function properly. The optimal regulation of circulation is a prerequisite for ensuring good levels of health and fitness.
BEMER is not a disease-specific application. Its effect on the circulation and the resulting improvements to the supply and removal of substances to/from the body’s cells allows these cells to produce and supply increasing amounts of energy, and therefore carry out their tasks (production) in a more functional manner.
Training In A Spectrum Of Holistic Healing Techniques Can Make All The Difference Between Having A Job As A Wellness Worker And Creating A Wellness Practice
of Myofascial Release, one of the most useful massage modalities for injury recovery, scar rehabilitation and sports recovery. Our students start clinical practice after their first term in school. HAC is nothing if not a “learning by doing” school. Our students will spend the better part of a year working on the public so that when they graduate they are as comfortable with clients as they are with their friends. Like most massage therapists nation-wide, roughly 60% of our graduates will wind up running their own independent wellness practices.
And this is the new gold standard at HAC: comprehensive wellness practice.
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!
