Arthur “Link” Freeman, LMBT #13077, BA Philosophy
From 2013-Present I’ve worked as a LMBT, practicing Neuromuscular massage at Massage Spas, alongside Chiropractors, and at All Sport Muscle Therapy working on athletes. I grew dissatisfied with this intense approach that often left me with the feeling that I was fighting clients to relax, or working out their issues with force. I began studying gentler and more effective modalities for my continuing education.
In private practice I began using Freedom Bodywork as I began training with the renowned practitioner Trager student, Nancy Weinberger. In 2015, I joined the 500 Hour Certification Program of Clinical Qi Gong Master Michael Lomax, and have made great leaps in my understanding of energetics and healing the spiritual level. Since 2016, after a transformative experience study abroad program in Japan, I have committed to working on a deeper level and use only the most effective techniques to reach a complete state of well-being and peace. The most important lesson I learned from the Japanese was that we choose to be either in Harmony with Nature or against Nature. I refined my approach to have all techniques and sessions aimed at harmonizing with these principles. The result is returning to our original nature of peace, contentment, and relaxation.
I completed my undergraduate studies in Philosophy Magna Cum Laude in Spring 2017, which helped me clarify my understanding that the way we view reality and the philosophies we hold create our experience. In order to shape our experience and have a more wholesome life, we need to uncover our long held beliefs and views of reality for examination.
After graduation I broadened my understanding of the healing arts through travel in Brasil and Peru in the Summer of 2017. I worked with Shamans in the Amazon of Peru and the plant medicines of Mother Ayahuasa, Sapo, Kambo, Nunu, and San Pedro. These medicines shattered many filters I had limiting my reality, and helped me let go of a lot of heavy weights on my soul.
In 2018 my goals were to complete Certification as Clinical Qi Gong Healer and seek more opportunities to revolutionize the paradigm of health here in the U.S. I completed the Alchemical Dreamers’ Guild Initiation, in the Spring and began working on Healcyon full time. For my Summer Adventure my travels took me from Chicago, to Seattle, to Portland, which gave me new perspectives and a lot of important feedback from the amazing people I met.
2019 has found me at the end of a cycle. I completed my Qi Gong Certification, and am solidly on track to become a teacher in whatever ways I can to serve the World! This was best exemplified in my travels during the Summer, where I spent all of July living a Monastic Life at the Southern Shaolin Temple in Putian, China. After that experience, I was invited to be an instructor at a World CitiZen summer camp for youth ages 11-16. I got to teach movements, traditional Chinese culture, and even Philosophy! A truly rich and rewarding experience, I now aim to supplement my Bodywork and Healing practice with more teaching opportunities and classes.
Now in 2020 I have begun serious collaboration work with local community members to further my goals to teach and work with at-risk youth. A Board Member of the non-profit Sean Ingram’s Academy in Raleigh, I seek to participate and create new initiatives that will reconnect people of all ages with their inner Spirit-that they may have a smoother path in Life. With the COVID-19 Pandemic impacting my traditional income sources of bodywork, I’ve expanded to teaching more online and took over as Organizer of Spirit World Meetup group.
