Joshua Carter 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.
Following the stage direction of the Universe, in June of 2019, Joshua became a part owner of the Centre. After eleven years of working out of this space, Joshua wants to now pay forward all of the wonderful support he has accessed here.
To be of service to all life in this way is his next evolution.
If you want to take care of your health, Joshua will offer you relief, support and encouragement. He helps you maintain and improve your well being through self-awareness and freedom from emotional and physical limitations.
Joshua graduated from Grant MacEwan’s Massage Therapy Diploma Program in 2007. He trained in a number of bodywork modalities including Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD), Myofascial Release Technique (MRT), Trigger Point Therapy, sports massage, hydrotherapy, pregnancy massage, infant massage, geriatric massage, relaxation massage, and therapeutic massage.
In 2008, he joined the dynamic team at Healing Connections Wellness Centre. He is registered with the National Health Practitioners of Canada. Joshua is also trained in CranioSacral therapy, since 2010 and Reiki, since 2012. He has discovered great value in being able to meet each client in their present moment, using a variety of techniques. Working with the joints, muscles, connective tissues, fluid, craniosacral rhythm and even energetic bodies.
In 2013, he began a transformational journey by studying shamanic healing in the Algonquin tradition of The 8th Fire Inc. Although it was his desire to bring new tools to his clients, the process began as one of profound self-healing. Joshua has worked with healing his past traumas, limited beliefs and such personal issues as depression and anxiety. He is grateful for these teachings and this opportunity to share this work with his clients.
"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." says Joshua.
