About the Instructor

Hello, My name is Dr. Thomas F. Ahern, Jr., and I look forward
to being your teacher. If I reach this goal with you as I have with
others, then this part of my life will have been fulfilled. Thank
you for considering my school.
I have been a facilitator of healing all of my life. The first
person's life I saved was three years old. I was five. I jumped
in and saved him from drowning; not knowing how to swim myself.
I got us both out, and -- I must confess -- I was wearing a Superman
suit at the time.
My life-long massage therapy education started when my grandfather
taught me massage while still a small boy. He firmly believed as
do I, that everyone should practice this healing art.
Following his example, my learning continues. I am a Reiki Master
and teach traditional Usui Reiki levels 1 and 2. I have spent years
studying a variety of massage techniques and then distilled each
into the essence of most effective technique. As I learn additional
massage techniques and therapies, I add them into my school curricula,
so as to provide the best possible educational experience for each
of my students.
A Buddhist Lama once asked me, if I was a good teacher.
I said that I was only as good as my students.
She bowed and said, “Very good answer.”
She then asked me, “How good are your students?”
I said, “They are all awesome.”
Again, she bowed and smiling now said, “Ah, very good answer.”
What I do for a living is, every day, all day long, helping to
heal people and make everyone feel better. I also get to teach my
students to do this. You too can learn to do what I do. Worldwide
I have been blessed with more than 2,100 students, all of them making
a positive change in this world of ours. Please come to learn and
share this healing art.
