My greatest passions in life are engaging in the human healing journey and being of service to others on their own path to healing. Like most people, I spent much of my life compartmentalizing that journey: when I felt physical suffering, I looked at my physical body as the cause, and I sought body-oriented treatments. When I felt emotional suffering . . . well, I usually just continued to suffer until the feeling passed, because, like most humans, I lacked both an adequate understanding of the nature of emotions and the tools to do something about it. When I felt spiritual suffering, I prayed and sought the guidance of spiritual teachers, both in person and in books. Essentially, I acted as if I were made up of different “parts” that functioned independently of one another. (Spoiler: That’s not how it works!)
My passion in life is to help people feel empowered in their healing journey and also help them to know that anything that is bothering them can be successfully changed with love, courage, and the right support. My own healing process has proven this over and over, and I am confident that with compassionate guidance and some patience, incredible shifts can occur. I have worked in many different environments throughout my career, including the Boston area VA hospitals, Shriners Hospital for Children in Western MA, outpatient settings, acute care settings, and I have owned my own private practice since 2014.
My name is Josh Landis, and I’m an expert on human movement, training, rehabilitation, pain, and healing. I’ve dedicated my life to helping other people get out of pain, restore the connection between their mind and body, and to become more conscious in their lives. I understand what it is like dealing with the frustration of my body not cooperating with me, continually navigating pain and injuries, and ultimately feeling disengaged from life due to a lack of trust in my body and my ability to move with autonomy and strength.
