Natural Awakenings Westchester / Putnam / Dutchess New York

An Interview with Bill Bubenicek, Founder of Art of Healing: New Location for The Art of Healing, now at 64 Gleneida Avenue, Carmel, NY

The Art of Healing Care Givers: Wendy Osoria, Bill Bubenicek & Jennifer Bergeron

The Art of Healing’s recent move to Carmel, NY, from Front Street in Patterson was a business decision based on demographics and the business’s years of growth at its prior location, says founder and managing director Bill Bubenicek, “The people of Patterson were very good to us, but the bulk of our business is coming from the Carmel, Mahopac area,” he says. We talked to Bubenicek in early January, just after the new Art of Healing opened for business on Gleneida Avenue in Carmel.

How would you describe your business?

We are a holistic healing center with the philosophy that physicians don’t cure disease—your body does. So our goal is to determine the root cause of the issue and then support the body’s own healing system to resolve it in a way that is natural to its own healing process.

What did you do before starting the Art of Healing?

I was a police officer from 1976 to 1996 and then worked in the corporate world as the district manager of a large security company.

What prompted you to change careers?

As a police officer, I was always interested in fitness and nutrition. I trained at the state police academy as a self-defense instructor and officer survival instructor. So it has always been my passion to help people and keep them healthy.

What is your training?

I am a graduate of the Institute of Integrative Nutrition, a licensed massage therapist, a certified cold laser therapist, a certified health coach, a certified crisis intervention counselor, and the author of the book Bliss on Tap.

What is your goal with your work? 

Our goal is to help people heal by providing a safe, nonjudgmental, loving environment where the resources to support the healing process can be provided.

What is your philosophy with your work or business?

To find something to love about every person who walks through my door, and to take the time necessary to help them feel better.

What do you most want our readers to know about your business? 

I want all your readers to know that visiting the Art of Healing is an experience that will surely change their lives.
