About the Northeast Holistic Center
Natural health options, personal re-education and education, growing conscious
awareness, and a peaceful, joy-filled and prosperous lifestyle are the
foundation upon which the Northeast Holistic Center was founded in 1990.
Through the personal life journey and growth experiences of the NHC's
founder, Caroline Bayard, the modality of healing Holistic
created and became the first course of study for the newly formed healing
and education ministry. Holistic Synergy is the subtle energy work of balancing
the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of each individual
and creating health through homeostasis.
Since Holistic Synergy energy work is a subtle form of healing and is less
easily understood by the general population, Caroline chose to utilize
other forms of natural and traditional therapies to assist in the healing
and growth process of each individual that came to the NHC. From this
philosophy, other courses were introduced into the curriculum at the NHC.
Within the structure of each individual class, other than Holistic Synergy
, is the basic foundation of the NHC - balancing of body, emotions,
mind and spirit.
When Hypnosis was introduced as a part of the Holistic
Synergy Practitioner Certification program, besides the traditional techniques
of hypnosis, the interrelationship to issues of the body, emotions, mind
and spirit were also integrated into the hypnosis techniques. When the
practitioner was fully trained in this manner, they were able to address
challenges on all levels to assist the client.
When Reflexology was added
to the curriculum, the course of study was developed so as to address
the actual work of reflexology, but also to incorporate, the emotional,
mental and possible spiritual aspects of the person's healing path. The
client comes away from the session relaxed on many levels and unable
to understand what made an NHC reflexology session so different from
other reflexology sessions.
In the studies of Basic Herbal Care Certification,
Aromatherapy & You Certification,
Flower Essences Certification, Crystals Certification, Color Therapy
Certification and all of the other classes taught at the NHC, the
student learns to address all four levels - physical, emotional, mental
and spiritual. And so the curriculum of the Northeast Holistic Center
was created and is growing.
As the curriculum developed and practitioners were trained, the public
had well-educated and compassionate practitioners to address their needs
and lectures were requested to educate the public even further in the ways
of complementary/alternative healing. The Northeast Holistic Center lectured
at Barnes and Nobles throughout New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania for
many years, as well as local metaphysical stores and fairs. The lecturing on holistic healthcare topics expanded into the corporate sector and libraries throughout the United
Further teaching of NHC courses and requested lectures have
been done at New Jersey massage schools and other complementary and alternative
health facilities. The staff of the NHC now also teaches at colleges,
hospitals and medical facilities in New York and New Jersey. The NHC
works closely with the community and supports local groups working with
the AIDS/HIV community by incorporating traditional and natural healing
methods as a means of coping with the epidemic.
Caroline Bayard and many of the NHC staff have appeared on television from
Fox 5 News to local cable stations, and radio on a national level. Articles
written by the NHC have appeared in local newspapers and magazines.
Caroline has been quoted in national magazines and newspaper including
Massage Magazine and Women's World.
Caroline Bayard and Barry Rosenstreich have expanded
the teaching of the NHC and Holistic Synergy to the international level,
