I want to tell you something.
Hilot is not just Massage as I always tell and that is what I teach at Hilot ng Aghamang Binabaylan. And sad to say almost everyone in the world even our kababayan who lives here in the Philippines have the same understanding of What Hilot is. But our Ancestors will disagree on what we know right now. Though when I conduct research, there are still elders who can describe what real hilot is and it affirms to what we are providing.
The problem with what is happening now is that even our government (Tesda, PITAHC, Tourism), in order to please the majority of the people, they are providing Hilot according to what people think. The Definition and Identity of Hilot has already been confirmed to what the world think about it and not according to what really it is.
In Hilot Academy of Binabaylan, we are working out to redefine it according to its Natural Nature even that some of the original roles of manghihilot has been cut off to them by the Philippine Department of Health, such as the role of attending birth to a laboring mother.
The Pandemic of Covid 19 have put the role role of Manghihilot down by preventing us to do our part as primary healthworker. But as Manghihilot, we are also a Warrior, that even that we are forbidden, our duties to take care of the Health of our people prevails. And through that our Hilot Technique on Suob has become popular Home Remedy and Treatment to have relief from Covid 19. So as our Government look for the possibilities of the effectiveness of Virgin Coconut oil which is a product of HIlot in fighting Viral Infection as well as the use of Lagundi and Tawa-tawa as oral medication for those who have been infected by these Global Virus.
These are only some of the works that we did so as in empowering people around the world to be in charge of their own health by providing the online course on Non Contact Hilot Mind and Spirit Work that could help relieve people from any Psycho-Emotional Disturbances caused by this pandemic.
Right now, we are updating our Training Program at Hilot Academy as I plan to provide a Diploma Course which consists of 3 Certifications and that is the Magtatawas Certification, Manggagamot Certification and the Albularyo Certification. This Training Course will take time as our Magtatawas Online Training already took 9 months of Completion, How much more if we do the manggagamot as well as the albularyo training.
Originally, like what our ancestors did, Learning Hilot is through apprenticeship. And usually those who becomes a Manghihilot started first as being a Patient that been healed by Manghihilot and out of gratitude for having their second life, the patient dedicates to assist the manghihilot and learn its technique directly from a Manghihilot.
