A healer does not heal you

A healer
is someone who
holds space for
you while you awaken
your inner healer,
so that you may heal yourself

At 31, Josh had his first back surgery - an artificial disc implanted in between cervical vertebrae 6 and 7. He’d never had any type of significant injury or trauma to his back yet his disc ruptured, leaving his right arm partially paralyzed and his hand numb. The surgery in his neck was a success but his neurosurgeon warned him that there was an even larger problem looming. Josh’s MRI’s showed 90% degeneration of the discs in his lumbar spine. His doctor warned him that significant surgical intervention was inevitable. Through it all, Josh wanted to know WHY he had such serious back problems at such a young age. The only answer anyone could give him was “bad genes.”
The next few years were dark, to say the least.
Josh’s pain progressed from nagging to persistent to chronic and debilitating. Not being able to walk without pain and struggling daily to do basic things for himself, Josh looked to physical therapy, traction therapy, inversion tables, zero gravity chairs, painkillers, muscle relaxers and cortisone shots for relief. You name it; he tried it. Facing another major surgery or a life of chronic pain, Josh discovered Foundation Training. Foundation Training not only relieved Josh’s pain but answered his biggest question: Why was he experiencing it?

Foundation Training taught Josh that his body was breaking down due to a lifetime of poor posture and poor movement patterns.
Within weeks of consistently practicing Foundation Training, he began to experience significant relief. Josh then steadily progressed from being able to touch his toes, tie his shoes and shower without help to tackling workouts, runs, hikes and all the activities he’d feared he’d never enjoy again.
Inspired by his own experience, Josh has spent the past 7 years studying FT and has achieved the highest level certification that Foundation Training offers. He is committed to helping others free themselves from chronic pain and enjoy life without limits. Josh’s clients include assisted living patients, service industry professionals, MD’s, chiropractors, fitness enthusiasts, seasoned yogis, patients rehabbing from surgery and those looking to avoid it.

Hi my name is Ena and I’ve been practicing Massage therapy for 4 years now, and I absolutely love it. I moved to Charlotte in 2017 from the DC area to attend SouthEastern institute for a certification in massage therapy, and it’s been the best decision I have ever made. Helping people heal from chronic pain, healing from cancer, prepping to welcome their new baby and athletes be at their very best, has been super rewarding. I am certified, in prenatal, oncology, stretch therapy, and working on getting my lymphatic drainage therapy certification at the end of this month. I look forward to meeting you in the spa soon.
