I am truly dedicated to my clients and their trust in me to provide them with a wonderful, health promoting experience. I pride myself on providing consistent quality massage and helping clients reach their ultimate health goals with education, encouragement and compassion.  I am a strong supporter of receiving regular massages and of personal self care such as stretching, regular exercise, healthy eating habits and getting plenty of rest all which are crucial to surviving our stressful lives and world. I truly recognize the importance in nurturing ourselves and I feel so blessed to be a part of the process.


I have been told I'm quite intuitive and that allows my version of therapeutic massage to also be relaxing.  I fuses multiple modalities together to get the best possible results.


I practice the following modalities:

Deep Tissue Therapy

Pregnancy Massage

Swedish Massage

Trigger Point

Injury

Sports

US Navy Hospital Corpsman 2000-2006

As a veteran Corpsman I have gained tons of experience in the medical community. I have worked as an EMT, a Medical Assistant/LPN/RN in the Family Practice Clinics, Orthopedics, Dermatology, and OB/Gyn too. I have seen all kinds of cases on many different injuries, conditions, and treatments and I am able to bring that knowledge to you.

I felt very comfortable and trusted that Heather knew what she was doing. I’m looking forward to my next massage.

This was one of the best massages I’ve ever had. Heather really listened and you could tell really wanted to understand my needs and expectations. I have a special situation that required a certain type of massage on my leg and even though that’s not her specialty, she clearly is educated in a multitude of modalities and was able to proficiently address my specific situation. I tend to hop around to different therapists depending upon who my husband buys a Groupon from. But I don’t see myself going to anyone else other than Heather from here on out.
