Shellie Carter

Mother, Grandmother, Natural Care Practitioner, Bridge-builder, Story-teller & Pioneer, is an expert in Multi-Dimensional Healing for the Body, Mind, Spirit and Soul.

Today she is a highly sought after, inspiring and entertaining Speaker. Over the last twenty-five (25) years, Shellie has studied natural, ancient and cultural therapies. During this time she has recognized that emotions, spirituality and your soul play an integral role in the quality of our health, vitality and the ability to heal. She provides tools to assist you on your journey; creating a bridge to assisting the body, mind, spirit and soul back to balance.

As a bridge builder for people of different cultures she is considerate, caring and accepting of all people. Shellie has a special perspective that allows her to get to the core of health issues; she will instinctively discard the paths that lead nowhere for a faster road to healing for optimal health and balance. Having had the opportunity to be a part of a team that went to Ecuador for medical missions, her life was changed forever. It was there that she had the opportunity to work with people where the team was the only chance for them to receive health care in their lifetime. The opportunity to be of service and make a positive difference made her realize this was a part of what she is here to do.

Shellie has been a speaker for bereavement groups, seizure support groups and athletic workshops and more (see list below). The way she is able to bring stories and ideas to life makes her presentations exciting and vivid. Always on the hunt for the perfect phrase, she is able to find the words that inspire people to act.

Nick Talbot

Lymphatic Practitioner & Complete Decongestive Therapy (includes bandaging) — BS, LMT, LET, CLT

Through my biomedical educational background, years of holistic health experience, and certifications, I can help improve your life and health through lymphatic enhancement using the Lymphstar Pro Instrument. It is an Electro-biology device and has been in use for over 120 years. It emits a low energy vibration that is safe and relaxing to experience. It is an electronic device that uses therapy heads containing noble gases in glass tubes. The gases are ionized by a high voltage field at low current. The therapy heads emit various fields of energy when touched onto the skin.

These vibrational energies are:
an electrostatic field this field dynamically pulsed’ at low frequencies to create acoustic waves an electro pressure field is created by the use of two therapy heads on various locations When coupled with a therapist’s caring attention and manual drainage techniques, you have a highly effective therapeutic system we call Lymphatic Enhancement Technology (LET).

Being 1 of 200 unique Certified Therapists in the country, I am able to provide a therapy that is not widely practiced. In addition, I completed my Licensed Massage Therapy program in the Fall of 2016 and am licensed in the state of Illinois. Also, I have completed my Complete Decongestive Therapy Certification as a Certified Lymphatic Therapist in Fall 2017.


Colon Hydrotherapy (CHT)

Colon Hydrotherapy (also called colonic irrigation, or colon cleansing) is a safe, effective method of removing waste from the large intestine. By introducing filtered and temperature-regulated water into the colon, the waste is softened and loosened, resulting in evacuation through natural peristalsis. This restorative process is intended to cleanse trapped impurities.

A very pleasant experience. This was my first time and I was worried. Fatima did a very good job explaining the process and was gentle during the session. I will be going again.


Colon Hydrotherapy

Shellie was fabulous. I am an experienced colon therapist, but have had some severe health issues. Shellie made me feel comfortable, before, during and after the colonic. When I got home I felt light and energetic. I know that is not everyone’s experience, but after being on heart meds for over a year and battling the feeling of bloat, impaction, and constipation, I was delighted to physically feel that I am OK to be on the mend. Thank you Shellie!


Craniosacral Therapy

Fatima did my colonic hydrotherapy and she was amazing. Not only professional but made it so comfortable for me! I’ll be back next week!
