Bryan Avery, (MSc., PhD. candidate) is president and CEO of the Hawaii Institute of Anatomy (HIA) and has been teaching Gross Human Anatomy since 1987. He received his training in Anatomy and Cell Biology while enrolled in the PhD program at a Canadian University.
While completing his undercgraduate degree in Biomedical Science at the University of Guelph, Canada, he worked as a teaching assistant in the Gross Anatomy laboratory for Human Biology and Human Kinetics students.
He continued teaching and studying Gross Anatomy through his Master of Science training with a specialty in Nutritional Science and Human Biology.
While working on his Master's dissertation, Bryan discovered a heretofore unreported ligament in the scapular notch region of the shoulder.
This ligament, which he named the anterior coraco-scapular ligament (ACSL), is sometimes referred to as the "Avery ligament". ACSL is considered to be a possible contributor to Suprascapular Nerve Entrapment Syndrome, a condition observed in 60% of individuals.
Although his Ph.D. research involved cellular communication between sympathetic neurons and Schwann cells, Bryan continued to enjoy teaching Gross Human Anatomy to medical, physical therapy, occupational therapy and nursing students. He was approached by many public and private professional schools and clinics to teach post-graduate courses for massage therapists and physical therapists, and established a great reputation as an exceptional instructor who is forever excited to teach Gross Human Anatomy.
The Institute of Energy Wellness Studies welcomes Bryan Avery (M.Sc., PhD candidate) with great appreciation as a faculty member to our School Program offering students a high quality post-graduate level Gross Human Anatomy course to all of our students in the healthcare profession.

It is professionally practiced in more than 50 countries worldwide as a tool for spiritual evolution and personal growth. The EMF Balancing Technique® is also recognized and practiced as a new speciality in the growing field of Energy Psychology.
Over and over again, I watch clients and students experience an expanded awareness of their wholeness and infinite nature as they learn to consciously co-create an enlightened reality. The result is profound. It affects the way they live their everyday lives as they give intent with enhanced wisdom and freedom; use their strengthened inner ability to take responsible action; and then with personal empowerment and peace, begin to create for themselves new realities in their lives. It is beautiful to watch, and it has done the same for me!”

Mitchell hosts a radio show every Tuesday at 1 PMl (www.abetterworld.net/tv.htm) interviewing the sung and unsung heroes of our society who are in their fields, working to create a better world—healing, health, education, science, arts, studies in consciousness, spirituality, Energy Medicine and the environment.

Mitchell brings a naturalness, simplicity, intuition, humor and good-heartedness to the activity and space of healing. His background in metaphysical, Taoist and Buddhist paths, combined with an archetypal-Jungian perspective gives a broad view and understanding of healing and the soul’s path to awakening.
