The Heroes Circle in Boston is proud to announce that our community classes are open to all children in pain, regardless of the cause. All of our programming, including uniforms, is free of charge & siblings are welcome. The Heroes Circle teaches meditation, breathing and movement techniques found in the martial arts to empower children beyond the pain and trauma of childhood disease.
Services are currently offered at Children’s Hospital of Boston & Harvard Vanguard Medical Associates.
All services provided by the Heroes Circle are at no cost to the children and their families.
Children 3 years & older, and their siblings, are eligible for the program.
Martial Arts Therapy
The Heroes Circle addresses the overwhelming needs of children with illness. Specially trained black belt martial artists teach breathing, visualization, and relaxation techniques, in addition to traditional martial arts moves, to help empower the children and provide them with a sense of power, peace, and purpose.
Using martial arts therapy, the Heroes Circle program teaches seriously ill or injured children and their siblings to:
- Regain a sense of control over the chaos of their lives
- Become empowered partners in their own healing
- Push away the message of pain
- Provide inspiration and light to others facing life-challenges
- See themselves as victors, not victims
