Meet The Team

Dr. Josh Henk

Doctor of Chiropractic
Masters in Nutrition and Human Performance
The two most important days in our lives are the day we are born and the day we learn the reason for our birth. Dr. Josh is an Upper Cervical Chiropractor, whose life's work has been focused on the idea that healing begins from the inside-out.

He began to build his roots through education at the Logan College of Chiropractic in search for that answer. Upon completion of his professional education, he received a Doctoral Degree in Chiropractic and a Master's Degree in Human Nutrition and Performance. He is convicted by the idea that each and every one of us are connected to one another the same way our cells are connected to one another through the brain and neurologic system. In search for for a greater understanding of this underlying connection, he has vowed to master and serve his community through hope and his faith in the subtle healing energy inside of us all.

Being a doctor, father, husband, and friend, Dr. Josh began to realize the importance of the family dynamic. Transcendence Family Wellness Center was founded by Dr. Josh and Kenzie Henk to offer hope and inspiration to families in their community.

Dr. Kenzie Henk

Doctor of Chiropractic
Masters in Sports Rehabilitation
Dr. Kenzie Henk has been on the journey of living a holistic lifestyle and raising a health conscious family. Through her training in Chiropractic, she has learned that health comes from within and she has now made it her passion to introduce Chiropractic Care and Holistic Living into the community.

When Maximus was born in the comfort of their homes, she discovered a passion for helping young families have the same experience. She became empowered to educate women about how female bodies were created to endure birth and create another human being.

"Serving other women in the hopes that they too would have a spiritual and connected birth is what drives me each and every day."

It has become a passion of hers to educate families about the natural birth process and the innate wisdom of the human body. By inspiring women to become conscious of the health decisions that they make, she hopes to reshape the future of family wellness.

Dr. Kenzie graduated from Logan College of Chiropractic with a Doctorate in Chiropractic and Masters in Sports Rehabilitation. She is actively pursuing her board certification in pediatric chiropractic care from the International Chiropractic Pediatrics Association. She is also the Leader of the Holistic Moms Network, which provides an environment for mothers and families to learn more about living a holistic lifestyle.

Heather Lemanski

Certified Professional Midwife
Blue Water Midwifery
Heather Lemanski is a Certified Professional Midwife (CPM) and I have been attending births as a midwife's assistant or apprentice since 2011, when I began my first apprenticeship. Since then, I have worked with 6 different midwives in the metro Detroit area and surrounding communities. I enjoy working alongside different midwives and my practice is a good melting pot of midwifery styles.
I am a current member of the Michigan Midwives' Association, a certified Neonatal Resuscitation (NRP) and an adult / child / infant CPR provider. I have had the privilege of attending over 150 births and in April 2018 I obtained my Certified Professional Midwife (CPM) credential from the North American Registry of Midwives.

I have been married to my college sweetheart, John, since 2004 and we have 4 children together! I gave birth to my first child in a “normal, induced hospital birth” in 2005. It was a “typical” American birth and while becoming a mother for the first time was joyous in itself, her birth left me feeling like I had missed out on something.
My transition to motherhood was complicated with the feelings that my birthing experience could have been different, better, special. Not something I needed to be rescued from, but something I needed to experience fully and in my own way. This led me on the path to exploring home birth. When I gave birth to my second child at home in 2009, I felt that there was nothing I could not do!
It was during my third pregnancy in 2011 that I felt the calling to birth work and midwifery.I feel all women should have the choice to birth how, where and with whom they want. Normal labor and birth is not an emergency and does not have to be a medical event.
