The Healing Cave Inc.

Welcome to the temporary online home of The Healing Cave Inc., a new nonprofit that is gearing up to serve the greater Indianapolis area.

Until website creation and upkeep costs become something we can fund, TruConnection is sharing their website with us, to use as a space for scheduling clients, accepting donations, and sharing what we are about, and how we aim to serve our community. Please note however that TruConnection LLC is a for-profit business and a legally separate entity from The Healing Cave, a registered 501c3 nonprofit incorporation.

2024 is a year of working towards attaining our mobile center so we can start serving the community as soon as possible.

You can find our donation form at the bottom of this page, if you would like to donate!

Stay tuned-in to our progress:  If you would like to be added to our monthly e-newsletter, let us know by sending an email to emilee.thehealingcave@gmail.com

Our Purpose:

We believe that all living beings are capable of engaging in their lifelong healing process on a physical, mental, emotional, and energetic level. We strive to provide the public with free, alternative, holistic wellness and healing bodywork services.

Our Mission:

The Healing Cave provides the space, tools, education, therapies, and wellness professionals for all beings to engage with their healing.

Our Values drive our approach:

Empathy ~ Inclusivity ~ Accessibility ~ Equity ~ Integrity ~ Humility ~ Acceptance ~ Community ~ Ongoing Learning ~ Justice ~ Social Awareness ~ Progression ~ Innovation ~ Creativity ~ Remaining Open to Change

About Us:

Is it an actual cave? No, it is a metaphorical cave. Many cultures throughout humanity’s existence have revered caves and cave-like structures as being a place of retreat, renewal, and rebirth. It is a place to reconnect to the cosmic womb or void. It is a place to embrace the dark for all it can teach and heal. Metaphorically, we can look at our energetic heart space as our own personal cave. Our sacred center within, that offers its own dark and light. The services offered at The Healing Cave will always have the root intention of empowering people to feel into the “dark” in their own life- i.e. their emotions, messages from their intuition, and their body calling out for attention through dis-ease.  All our services will honor the idea that you cannot be passive in your healing; you must be an active participant.

What makes us different:

We will bring health care services to the people, rather than operating a brick and mortar center that under-represented people groups would have to travel to.  Health care services are often not physically accessible to those who need them the most. We will create a mobile service center that travels to under-served communities and provides equitable services.   We will provide a team of professionals who receive specialized training to competently meet the needs of under-represented groups. For example, providers will receive training in how to adapt services for those who are blind/seeing-impaired, deaf/hearing-impaired, have limited physical mobility, have experienced historic or cultural trauma, etc.

Target Underserved People Groups:

  • Blind/Low Vision
  • Deaf/Hearing Impaired
  • Bigger Bodies/Plus Sized
  • English Language Learners
  • Use/rely on equipment outside of their bodies for mobility
  • Neurodivergent
  • Use service animals

Menu of Services:

Massage Therapy, Reiki and therapeutic touch, myofascial release, guided meditations and breathwork, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Sound/vibrational frequency therapy, guided yoga/stretching, Ayurveda, Acupuncture, Chiropractic Care, Cupping, (etc!)

How to Support:
