Hello Spring!! A letter to you from Paula & Neha Curtiss

Hello Healers,

Happy Spring! 400 years ago, William Shakespeare wrote one of his most often quoted lines: ‘Above all else, to thine own self, be true.’ Healing Hands strives to help the student of holistic health to learn their new skills, while also encouraging the student, the teacher and the school, to stay true to your vision. This Spring we again offer a wide spectrum of holistic health topics. Healing Hands students design their own focus for their holistic health education. We thank our wonderful teachers for bringing your wide variety of holistic health expertise to our program including the Holistic Living Retreat, Energywork for Bodyworkers,  Chakra Balancing, Sports Massage, Anatomy for Bodyworkers and Neuromuscular Therapy. The student of holistic health has much to explore at Health Hands School. This Spring,  Chris Harmon’s ‘On-site Bodywork for the Athlete’ teaches  how to manipulate the tissue and triggerpoints for pre-event and post event work. Perla Pintado returns to bring us her Chakra Balancing class. Richard Jordan presents CranioSacral Therapy and Somatics. Ray Fecteau offers Sports Injuries and NeuroMuscular Therapy. For those who wish to learn healing techniques in a natural setting, we invite you to come the Annual Holistic Living Retreat. Held over Easter weekend, we invite you to come camping with us under the big oak trees, play in the creek, sleep under the stars, and experience workshops and lessons away from the distractions of modern conveniences.

It is with a deep and abiding love that we congratulate our latest Holistic Health Practitioner graduates. This list includes very special healers who have had many unique challenges. As we look forward to hearing of the healing work you are about to accomplish, we take this time to recognize the healing work you have done to bring you here, your graduation as a Holistic Health Practitioner. We wish you the very best in your personal healing as well as the highest success as you enter into this profession. Great job  Matthew Alduenda, Tashena Marie Auld, Keila Baca, Cecilia Baeza, Rachel Bender, Robyn Benjamin, Melissa Castro, Irina Degtyareva, Rebecca Deroest, Ellena Dien, Nicholas Duran, Emily Foster, Beth Ann Swift, CJ Harper, Elise Henderickson, Christian Hernandez, Whitney Hollison, Jane Howells, Cassandra Huff, Audra Kelly, Marissa Larry, Ian Losey, Camille Mackey, Christal Maxedon, Claire McCarthy, Veronica Miles, Christopher Morgan, Rose Mulder, AnnMarie Newton, Janna Lee Novell, Sarah Phillips, Richard Powell, Itzayana Ramirez, Katherine Salerno, Angela Salinardi, Kathleen Schraiber, Adam Van De Bovenkamp, Elizabeth Vasquez, Tawnya Wallinder, and Daniel White.

This Winter a new little soul joined the Healing Hands tribe. Congratulations to our Office Angel Brandon as he and Aubrey welcome their lovely daughter, Juniper to their family.

We also wish to share our support for Tawnya in her time of grief. May healing come to you in the fullness of time. Our hands and hearts are here for you, whenever you need us.

May Peace Bring its Blessing to All,


Paula and Neha and All of Us at Healing Hands

Holistic Massage School Newsletter – Summer 2015

Hello Healers,

Summer of 2015 finds Massage Therapy more integrated in the American experience than ever before. The Healing Hands School clinics see more clients each week. During our On-Site Therapy course we visited 5 different facilities which are ready for our student interns. Our job placement board has more jobs posted than our graduates can fill. At Healing Hands School, we are so happy that we can teach very practical hands on skills, and yet stay true to our lineage of holistic health. Each staff member, teachers, and student adviser is a healer. We are dedicated to continuing our mission of bringing a comprehensive experience of holistic health to all our students. 

This Summer, we have a new class in our elective line-up: James Beard’s Introduction to Breathwork. James teaches several breathwork techniques which can be integrated into your massage practice. James teaches how to use the breath as a healing tool. In Laguna Hills, Shana Lipner’s Herbal Studies course is condensed to twice a week, and we welcome Shannon Gonzales back from her maternity focus to once again bring us her Energywork for Bodyworkers. In Escondido, Claudia Baben and Jennifer Peterson will teach LomiLomi Hawaiian Massage. Jennifer Johnson, owner of the Hideaway Spa at the Marriott, will teach Massage as a Business.

Please celebrate with us as we congratulate our latest Holistic Health Practitioner graduates: Justyne Carnes, Angela Carnes, Gabriella Davis, Gina Ferrera, Brittany Huggins, Jessica Kolleda Osborn, Dawn McCadden, Anneka Preston, Moises Reynoso, Wendy Taylor, Robert Thomas II. You are a beautiful and unique group of diverse healers comprised of 2 new parents, a professional drummer, a bicyclist therapist, and a U.S. Marine veteran. You came to Healing Hands with open minds and strong convictions. It has been wonderful to work with each of you. We are truly excited to hear how your healing path will unfold before you. Good work awaits your healing hands.

With the warmth of Summer ripening around us, we wish all peace and health,

Paula & Neha
All of us at Healing Hands
