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.

The HAC Team Trains Constantly And Works Passionately
By Kyle Riebeling, HAC Faculty/Core Management Group. Have you ever wondered about how The Healing Arts Center does what it does? Who or what is behind the curtain running the show? There is more to The Healing Arts Center than meets the eye. The truth is that there are many hard working people that keep HAC evolving so that it can continue to provide extraordinary transformational education into the future. From the Front Desk Team to the Executive Management Team, HAC is a school that is constantly watching the massage therapy community, surveying what is happening in the massage therapy world and educating itself so that it can educate its students.
HAC is run by three essential groups of personnel: The Front Desk Team, The Core Management Group and The Executive Management Team. Our main decision making team (Core Management Group) meets weekly at HAC for a meeting that we lovingly call "Core". HAC uses a highly transparent style of management. Every Core Manager is required to know the school's financial information in detail including what everyone earns from the headmaster down to the workshop instructors. Nearly every issue that arises in the school is discussed at Core meetings with each Core Manager presenting the status of his or her "zone of control" each week. This creates a highly collaborative environment wherein every Core Manager can contribute to every other Core Manager to improve perspective and enhance the quality of decisions that the group makes. Core moves very quickly using a "learn-decide-act" model of problem solving and business design. This is why so many things appear to be changing rapidly around HAC lately.
Let me tell you that these meetings are definitely are not your average "business-as-usual" business meeting. The special thing about Core meetings is that we spend a large percentage of the time developing the consciousness of conscientious management. Ingrained in every meeting are values of The Healing Arts Center. Two of the most common themes are: learning to use business for the benefit of human beings and taking action to make the world a better place.
Every tradition starts with a first time. On May 22, 2015, The Healing Arts Center initiated two new graduation traditions at its 2015 May graduation. The first was a new honor society called The Order of the Twin Hearts. This society is designed to honor exceptional students who are nominated by the faculty and certified by the school president. Order of the Twin Hearts recipients must have high academic standards, superior technical skills and exemplary attendance. This term, OTH honors were extended to Rachel Delaney and Laurel Brack.
