Originating in the Philippines, Hilot is a hands-on healing art that involves intuition and massage. The practitioner intuitively scans the body with touch to diagnose areas which are energetically imbalanced. "Hilot" is also a Filipino word used to describe "healer." A Hilot therapist is trained in massage and body/mind connections. Although Hilot is a deep-tissue massage the touch is gentle.
