Mission Statement: Providing Sacred Space for Transformation and Assisting Others in their Personal Evolution.
After years of listening to the community’s desire (as well as her own) for a holistic healing center, Meghan Burke created the Healing Arts Centre…
Burke opened Remedy Herbal Pharmacy in Beechwood Shopping Center in 1992 to provide the community with alternative approaches to healing and wellness. Knowing experientially that college years are not always the healthiest, she wanted to provide the students, as well as the entire community, with a resource center.
As global awareness of alternative medicine grew and allopathic (western) and naturopathic medicine began supplementing one another, Remedy evolved in order to continue addressing the changing needs of health care and to better serve the community.
Opened in the summer of 2000, the Healing Arts Centre is the culmination of this evolution. At the time of opening, it is was the only center of its sort in the southeastern United States.
In addition to Remedy, the Healing Arts Centre houses Sangha Yoga Studio which offers over 20 classes weekly as well as a Yoga Teacher Training. Studio classes include Yoga, Pilates, Bellydance, Hand-Drumming, Martial Arts, Dance, holistic workshops and more. The 200 hour Yoga Alliance registered Teacher Training is with Rahasya Yogic Arts. The training is an 8 weekend intensive, usually spanning 6 months, and is offered once or twice yearly.
The yoga studio is also an art gallery featuring a a rotation of local artwork. As well as the moving and visual arts, the studio also offers candlelight concerts for people who enjoy earlier, live, acoustic music without the distractions found in usual music venues.
The Healing Arts Centre is also home to 6 different therapists offering complementary medicine. The therapies include Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture, Massage Therapy (several styles including PreNatal massage), Kinesio Taping, Reiki, Feldenkrais, and private Yoga therapy.
