As our youngest resource friend, she was executive assistant during PARTHIA's critical founding stages. She assists PARTHIA-myhomespa as a specialist in the HR field of Organization Development and Strategy, believing fervently that an effective HR practitioner is not only an administrator, or employee champion, but more importantly, the company's business partner. But more than these HR experiences, she feels that life's lessons and her own personal ways of wellness create enough resources for her and for PARTHIA. She is a proud mother of two beautiful baby girls.
|BIBIANO S FAJARDO, PhD|
BOY, to mainstream Philippine society, is a Chemical Engineer and businessman whose main line of work was building construction. But what is unique and fascinating about him is that he has been a bona fide practitioner of Filipino healing arts for over forty years -- from the time he was healed of muscular dystrophy by a "manghihilot". He has since mastered the art and culture of Hilot and has come to be regarded in the network of practitioners as an "albularyo," ie, one qualified to teach Hilot. He was a founding director of the DOH's PITAHC and is regularly consulted by the Spa Association of the Philippines and the Department of Trade and Industry. He is a regular speaker on Hilot, indigenous Filipino spirituality, wholistic health and alternative medicine for academic and corporate institutions, including the UP College of Mass Communications, and top local and international spas. His background in chemistry and engineering allows him to explain in scientific terms what appears to many as "magical" healing. He now dedicates himself full-time to teaching and sharing the art of Hilot to the Philippines and to the world through the Association of Traditional Health Aid Givers, Inc. (ATHAG). He is the author of "Hilot: The Science of the Ancient Filipino Healing Art" and "Hilot -- Balik Kalusugan: Pagsasaayos ng Kuryente sa Katawan (Aklat 1)". View FILIPINO HILOT DEMO VIDEOS.
