Carolyn Belanger, BscN, Alternative Healing Practitioner
Co-creative healing, the concept my business is named for, is a result of my experience exploring healthcare delivery and healing. My journey began in 2006 when I obtained my Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of Alberta and started my career in emergency nursing. Three years later, I expanded my practice to isolated First Nations communities across western Canada.
During this time, I observed the unique needs of individuals accessing the healthcare system: while many responded successfully to western medicine, others expressed the need for an alternative.
This led me to explore the deeper meaning of health and healing, and during my investigation, I met many like-minded individuals and spiritual teachers throughout the world. My focus was on healing techniques that directly influence the energy that makes up the human being, and as I learned, my role shifted from a practitioner who delivers healthcare, to one who enables and facilitates healing through co-creation.
I graduated with a diploma in Five Elements Acupressure from the Canadian Acupressure College in 2013. Since then I have also achieved multiple certifications in Cranio-Sacral Therapy through the Upledger Institute. While continuing to practice as a registered nurse, I have developed Co-Creative Healing to provide these alternative healing services to clients representing any age and circumstance.
I continue to pursue my own professional, personal, and spiritual development. My life’s passion is to provide effective and informed healing for clients, facilitating their transformation from illness and injury to health and happiness, so that they may ultimately transcend to their greatest potential.
