  1. Perhaps, the proliferation of Western mode of curing sicknesses is partly to blame in misconceiving Hilot as pure massage. In the “modern” or Western form of medicine, the concepts like hotness and coldness, energy, etc., are either partially or totally rejected. Thanks for sharing the miracle of hilot to the community. Hope that I can enroll in your course soon. Pagpapala po!
