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

I’ve told numerous friends about Heather! She always finds the spots that are bothering me that I didn’t even know I had! She also listens and carefully took care of my mother and daughter after they had surgeries.

I recommend HG Therapies to everyone! Heather is fabulous with getting the knots in my muscles worked out while somehow making the entire experience relaxing at the same time. I've been going to Heather for well over 10 years and wish I lived closer so I could monthly!
