We pride ourselves on our dedicated staff, which average many years with our schools. Their passion for massage and holistic healing resonates not only with our team but also with the students that enroll at Healing Hands School. Some of our staff members were our students once upon a time!
We want to share a post with you that Pilar Chandler posted on her Instagram recently.
Chandler posted her Teacher of the Year honor from April 2011 with this note, “Found this today… sweet memories! I taught massage therapy at Healing Hands School for about 10 years! Right before I left on sabbatical, they awarded me teach of the year! I fell in love with the school the day I walked in. I sat down in the classroom and then made it a part of my life for the next decade! It was such a wonderful environment for growth and learning and healing, (I am) forever grateful for my time and experiences there. I found my calling and my voice and so much more!”
We couldn’t have been more touched by Pilar’s words.
Paul Curtiss responded, “Awww, Pilar it was wonderful to teach you, then to watch you become a teacher, and now to think of how many you have touched. Your healing work is an inspiration to all of us!”
Tera Ratinoff then shared her experience, “I finished my Holistic Healing Practitioner over eight years ago, and she’s still my favorite teacher.”
Michal Ettinger also shared her sentiments, “A special school indeed. And you were definitely worth of teacher of the year.”
Jess Dyrenforth, ART, HHP, shared her experiences with Healing Hands School and Pilar Chandler. “You were my sports massage teacher. So grateful to have had the experience, and tap into your vast knowledge.”
The common thing is that we all had a love for holistic healing. What is also important is that we walked away with these lasting friendships.
People come to our school searching for a better way to give back to the universe, and we are fortunate to guide these people through the techniques and to help set them up for a successful and enriching career in massage therapy and holistic healing.
Are you considering a career change? Are you looking to start a new life with a new purpose? We can help.
We help students every day with financial aid options to cover the costs of tuition. Once they’ve completed the coursework, we can help place them with some of the top spas and massage therapy practices in Southern California.
Thank you, Pilar, for celebrating your honor and your passion for what you do.
