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.

Lama Lobsang Palden Returns To HAC To Teach Tsa Lung - Sacred Tibetan Breath Yoga With Tibetan Sound Healing Meditation On July 15
Tsa Lung Links Breath With Consciousness
Over the past year, Lama Lobsang Palden has delivered a series of workshops that teach participants elements of various Tibetan breath yogas. Included in his workshop series has been an introduction to "Tummo", the yoga of generating internal heat made famous by the Mahasiddha Naropa in the 10th Century. Tsa Lung is the name for a variety of practices that teach practitioners how to develop vital energy (lung), or prana, in the energy channels (tsa) of the body.

Two years ago, the school started teaching this breath practice to the public by offering its Introduction to Transformational Breathwork workshop three times a year.

Some students have found that transformational breathwork has allowed them to completely recover from depression, panic attack disorder and other debilitating conditions often associated with past trauma. It is not unusual for a breathwork client to say that a single session of transformational breathwork can do what years of talk therapy cannot.
In the past century, several modern western traditions of breathwork have emerged:
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.

HAC has developed considerable expertise in restoring quality of life to cancer patients.
