MAHAL HEALING ARTS by Kiam Marcelo Junio helps clients integrate the body, mind, emotion, and spirit through Holistic Healing Services (yoga, meditation, mindfulness coaching, aromatherapy, CranioSacral, and East Asian Bodywork) and handcrafted self-care potions (BLOOM:Booty & Body Mist, MORNING DEW: Skin Renewing Serum, and DEEP EARTH: Grounding + Meditation Perfume) using all-natural botanicals. MAHAL HEALING ARTS aims to aid in the healing of self and society by creating spaces for people to better know themselves, the meanings they make, and their relationship to the world outside and within. The word “Mahal” appears in many languages to mean “dear,” “valuable,” “expensive,” “palace,” “a place of reverence,” “a place of rest,” “love.”
Kiam Marcelo Junio is a holistic healer and interdisciplinary artist creating work through writing, performance, photography, and new media. Their research and art work center around queering identities, creation myths and herstories, and personal and collective transformation through collaborative projects. Kiam served in the US Navy for seven years during the DADT era. They were born in the Philippines and have lived in the US, Japan, and Spain.

As a Chicago based artist and designer Compton Q is passionate about exploration, research, and the ways in which their identity as a Queer Non-Binary PoC drives creation. By focusing on cultural histories, gender, popular & material culture, sci-fi narratives, queer clubbing spaces & the rapidly evolving world of street fashion, they transport my audience to imagined futures & impossible worlds. Through the vehicles of fashion and performance the futuristic narratives and garments they create come to life through movement, time, and space.
