A Warm Welcome From The New Owners Of Healing Connections

The Summer Solstice is a reflection of the power of the Sun, with the Sun at its highest point in the sky the Goddess brings forth the greatest abundance of the year. At this time we celebrate the seeds that were planted in the spring; a time for growth, expansion, love and magic.

At Healing Connections we are celebrating and honouring the path that Jane has blazed for us while expanding on what was planted for the last 12 years of her ownership.

Let us introduce ourselves, our modalities, and what Healing Connections means to us.

Ally Swist started as a Registered Massage Therapist at Healing Connections over 5 years ago as a student. With a deep curiosity for the simplicity of healing with your hands, Ally went on to take all 3 levels of Usui Reiki and has been practicing for the last two years. Ally works with many styles of massage and has a true passion for holistic health and living.

“My work at Healing Connections inspires and shapes my life daily. This place is profoundly nurturing, welcoming and healing for all and has been an incredible home to me for the last 5 years of my life” 

Joshua Carter has been with Healing Connections for 11 years, his is an RMT who is also trained in CranioSacral therapy, Reiki, and shamanic healing. He believes that all healing is possible, and that this is best discovered through community. That is why, when the continuation of Healing Connections Wellness Centre came into question, he answered the call. To be of service to all life in this way is his next evolution.

“I believe that we are multi-dimensional beings; physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. All layers are energy and consciousness. My hope is to use the varying modalities that I have studied to hold space for my clients in each of these areas, to be present with, and reflect their wholeness.”

Karin Monkman, has been a massage therapist for 9 years and has been with Healing Connections for 4 years. She practices massage therapy, CranioSacral therapy, with special interest in women’s health and visceral work. Connection with individuals and connection with self is at the root of her treatments, educating clients and providing them with the space to heal has been a privilege.

 “Healing Connections has given me not only the opportunity to expand my treatments and knowledge of the human body and mind, but the opportunity to expand my knowledge of myself, my soul, and my potential”

Kim Dedels has been in the holistic health field since 1999.  Over the last 20 years she has trained in Reflexoloy, Bowen Therapy, CranioSacral, Dien Chan Multireflexology, Cat/Canine Bowen Therapy as well as other trainings to enhance her knowledge base.

“For 15 years I was owner/operator of my own clinic in Northern AB. 5 years ago I found Healing Connections where I have grown as an individual and see life on a much broader spectrum thanks to the associates here.   I am truly blessed to be part of this beautiful Healing space.”

For many, Healing Connections has been safe space in their healing journey. This clinic has protected and held dear those who have needed it; it has offered education, treatments, and products that nourish personal growth. We will honour and continue to hold space for this for all of our clients.


Our Vision for Healing Connections is to create a community of professionals who facilitate healing and sovereignty over self in a welcoming, holistic environment.
