HoHA Philippines Project
In 1995, HoHA began working in the second largest slum village in metropolitan Manila, Bagong Barrio, after responding to requests from the squatter community to provide training in basic Myotherapy. Over 50 health-workers were trained and many of these graduates now work as Myotherapists. In more recent years, the Train-the-Trainer program evolved into the first HoHA Sustainable Treatment and Training program (STTEP) program.
During 2009, there were 21,388 treatments on 4,339 patients. One master trainer went on to train Myotherapy in the HoHA STEPP program in Phnom Penh Cambodia. A new training program is being developed with the local training organisation Asiatech to deliver nationally accredited Massage Therapy qualifications.
