As a school of Holistic Health, Healing Hands’ curriculum also includes courses in nutrition and medicinal herbs.  Courses such as: Herbal Studies and Applications (January / Escondido), and Herbal Healing and Massage (March / Laguna Hills) teach how herbs affect us and their use in therapeutic practices.   Healing Hands’ 60-hour course entitled Holistic Nutrition (San Diego / Feb.) explores essential nutrients and identifies nutrient dense foods.  Students learn how to create meals that will enhance their energy, focus, health and mental well-being.   


Another reason Healing Hands stands out among its competition is its Founders, Paula and Neha Curtiss are experts in the holistic approach to life, health and healing.  One class offered that you won’t find anywhere else is their 2-day Holistic Living Retreat.  This course, attended by Healing Hands’ Faculty, Staff, Students, and their families, has been a favorite since the school’s inception in 1992.  Each year, during the Easter holiday weekend, the Healing Hands Community of Healers come together in a beautiful, natural setting to unwind, rejuvenate and connect with nature and eachother. This year’s Holistic Living Retreat falls on April 20th and 21st. Those interested may register through any Healing Hands location starting on April 6th

3 Steps To Begin 2019 With Intention

As we enter a new year, we are given a chance to start fresh. With new beginnings come new ways to alter your lifestyle for the better. Living with intention is a term many people use freely, but do not fully understand how to achieve it.

It is easy to fall into a rut of wanting to be in a different place in your life or not being fully content in where you are right now. Living each day with intention will give you the opportunity to manifest the life you truly want in 2019.

At Healing Hands, our programs educate our students beyond simply massage therapy. In order to promote overall wellness, you must create a balance within your mind, body, and soul. This balance is best achieved by creating intention within your life.

 

Create this upcoming year with intention, with these steps:

Step 1: Reflect

In order to get ahead, you must take a step back first. Reflecting on your past year will help you understand what truly mattered to you in 2018. Take time to celebrate your victories, but also recognize the lows. This form of self-reflection helps to ground yourself into what is important. This is a key step into manifesting your ideal year.  

 

Step 2: Ask Yourself Questions

Now that you have reflected on past events and emotions you have experienced within 2018, it is time to start asking yourself what you want 2019 to be like for you. Give yourself the opportunity to lay out exactly how you see the ideal year ahead of you. For example, ask yourself questions such as: What do you want more of in your life? What do you want less of in your life? What truly matters to you? Let these questions guide your actions this year.

 

Step 3: Act

After reflecting and planning, the only thing left to do is to act upon it. Living with intention means being present in your day-to-day life. Many times, especially through the stress of the holidays, we can be just going through the motions of life. These are the moments in which we must remind ourselves to stay present. A great way to practice this is through meditation, body-reading, and other spiritual practices.

 

At Healing Hands, we promote mindful and intentional living in our classes. Through courses such as Spiritual Healing, Reiki, and our Holistic Living Retreat, students train their mind, body, and soul to focus on what truly matters to them. Being present in every moment creates an awareness that cannot be achieved in any other manner.

 

Each of these courses mentioned will be available during our Winter Session!

Holistic Massage School Students Enjoy Holistic Living Retreat

Every year during Easter weekend, Healing Hands School of Holistic Health, (Healing Hands) offers a Holistic Living Retreat to students, said Harmony Curtiss, Director for Healing Hands– Laguna Hills. Hosted by school Founders, Paula and Neha Curtiss, the Retreat offers students the opportunity to retreat from the demands of daily life and affords time for introspection.  Taking a holistic approach to life, health and healing requires seeing ourselves as an integrated whole; mind, body and Spirit. This Retreat helps to facilitate that goal. All Healing Hands students and Alumni are welcome and encouraged to bring their friends and family”, she added.

The Holistic Living Retreat ran from 9am on Saturday, March 31st through 4pm on Sunday, April 1st, 2018 and was attended by over 60 guests.  Dozens of Students gathered in a beautiful, privately owned and undeveloped Canyon in the San Diego area. Without the modern conveniences of home, students were immersed in nature, enjoyed nutritious meals, slept under the stars, and experienced two days of fun, learning, and personal growth.

Throughout the weekend, Paula, Neha and Staff engaged students in a variety of holistic practices. These included Yoga, Tai Chi, Breath Therapy and Meditation.  Creative and self-expressive activities like singing, playing musical instruments, tie-dying, beadwork, and crafting were also encouraged.  The goal of the weekend was to help students experience the peace and well-being that comes from living a balanced, health-conscious life. 

For some students, Healing Hands Holistic Retreat served as an opportunity to get away from the demands of daily living and gain clarity about their challenges, or life’s purpose.  For others it was more about connecting with like-minded people, sharing experiences and feelings and nurturing a sense of belonging.  Regardless of the student’s motivation, those who enrolled in this course came away with 20 educational credits and a renewed appreciation for the serenity of nature.

Serving residents through three regional campuses located in Escondido, San Diego and Laguna Hills, Healing Hands has prepared more than 7,000 students for successful careers as Professional Massage Therapists and can do the same for YOU! Advocating for the benefits of a holistic approach to health, Healing Hands graduates facilitate the enhanced well-being for countless individuals within our communities.
