This weekend, Saturday, October 19th and Sunday, 20th the Healing Arts Center will host Jason Erickson to teach Hot DNM (Dermoneuromodulation) Pillossage: Axial Body.
Bert Davich, LMT and Myofascial Release instructor at the Healing Arts Center recommends Hot DNM Pillossage, saying,
"Jason is among the most effective instructors I have had the privilege to learn from. In addition to many specific techniques included in the class, he encourages critical thinking to inform practical application in class. [...] I consider it a critical piece for therapists to deliver effective pain management and for working with geriatric patients."
In this highly interactive and 75% hands on class, you will be introduced to important pain science and dermoneuromodulation (DNM) concepts, thermal therapy and both hands-on and Pillossage™ techniques you can immediately bring into your work.
From the instructor, Jason Erickson:
"My approach to teaching emphasizes a practical understanding of both the concepts and how to use the pillows skillfully. I also provide every participant with additional resources that they can study to go far beyond what we have time to cover in class."
Stress. That vague constricting feeling, the weight that drags on you. It shows up as tight shoulders, low energy, clenched jaws. You have your ways to cope with stress, from talking with a friend, helping someone out, getting a big hug, exercising, or a hot bath. What would probably make a huge difference in your wellbeing is deep breathing.
Breathing is the key to regulating the nervous system, to relieve stress, promote relaxation, and more. Transformational Breathwork is a practice of guided, conscious breath that allows the body to reset from fight-flight-freeze mode, stimulating the vagus nerve, and starting a ripple effect to help every system in the body perform optimally.

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.
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.
The Healing Arts Center bids a fond and loving farewell to Rocela Ginther as she becomes the Assistant Director of MBA Recruitment at the Olin School of Business at Washington University.
Over the past three years, no one has entered the student body at The Healing Arts Center without the help and encouragement of Rocela Ginther. Not only has she been part of a management team that has increased enrollment at HAC by nearly 31% since 2014, she has greeted prospective students with openness and ease, allowing them to find an educational path that fits them. The Healing Arts Center does not "sell" its education. Because its unique and highly transformative program requires students to be ready and willing to learn and change, it is important that students find and choose HAC rather than the other way around. The school has a long standing policy of refraining from talking prospective students into enrollment. Rocela is well known among our students for giving them the space and the encouragement that they needed to choose and begin a life-changing journey.
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.
