Early this morning i attended a forum on Hilot Wellness Massage by Tesda Trainers and Assessors with regards to the implementing rules and regulation of training and assessment.
The Forum has been called in response to World Health Organization requirements in providing evidence that Hilot is a traditional and natural medicine that could be employed in primary health care.
As graduate of the Academy, i advise everyone to document all cases you handled with your clients. Record the development and improvement of their health issues using the modality you have learned. And during the forum we made distinction about hilot vs. massage as it will be applied to k12 program of DepEd and Ched.
So be reminded now that in Hilot we will not ask our client to undress. But will treat client with their clothes on and only expose the body part that need to be treated. Hilot massage is encouraged to be done on sitting and not lying down on bed.
