After spending 10 years working in an office, I felt drawn to make a change. Massage was something I had enjoyed as a pampering treat for years but was brought to my attention by a family member. It met the qualities of a career that I was looking for, most importantly helping others and being physically active/not being stuck at a desk.

After spending 10 years working in an office, I felt drawn to make a change. Massage was something I had enjoyed as a pampering treat for years but was brought to my attention by a family member. It met the qualities of a career that I was looking for, most importantly helping others and being physically active/not being stuck at a desk. Everything I have done since the day I start massage school has reiterated this is what I was meant to do.

I graduated from the American European Massage Clinic of Raleigh, NC in December 2009. I specialize in deep tissue, medical and sports massage. I address a wide range of issues and conditions with the intention to help alleviate immediate pain and correct poor muscle patterns.

I am also trained in Lomi Lomi, Prenatal Massage, and Hot Stone Massage.

I am the co-owner of Collective Wellness in Durham NC.

I am a first time mom to a toddler who takes a lot of my personal time, but I enjoy being as physically active as I can be. I enjoy expressing my creative side with small crafts and photography.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork or Naturopathy services

by Anonymous on Feb 18
Asked specific questions, sought feedback during the massage on focus areas and comfort, provided followup advice after the session. Unrushed, knowedgeable and thorough.

Very professional, welcoming. I was a little nervous as it was my first time, but Heather did an excellent job explaining everything and making me feel at ease pretty quickly. Told me what to expect, which was great.

Heather is simply - AMAZING! I suffer from psoriatic arthritis and she helped me to get my range of motions back. She worked hard in getting my stiff muscles and body flexible again. I am very thankful for her true knowledge, talent and expertise.

Heather works deep tissue for me and she does an outstanding job. She has very good knowledge of the musculoskeletal system and is able to respond to specific issues.

Heather provided comfort and stability to my condition. She seemed confident in her treatment plan and I look forward to my return visit.

Heather is such a talented practitioner. Her training and experience makes her particularly knowledgable and versatile, with an exceptional grasp of anatomy and body mechanics. As such, she is able to draw on a diverse set of skills and techniques to solve complex problems. This particular visit, I mentioned I was experiencing some knee pain. When I described my symptoms, she immediately had an idea, very different from what I had suspected, and proceeded to perform some very unique joint manipulations that I would never have known to ask for. Now, the next day, I am totally pain free. After the massage itself, she also spent a good bit of time discussing her observations and explaining various issues regarding my specific condition. I feel like I learn so much about my body each time I work with her and am better equipped to care for myself going forward. She empowers me to take care of myself through understanding my body and pursuing my own physical training regimen with better knowledge and techniques, which she is competent to comment on. I'm so grateful for her patience and professionalism. The pride she takes in her work is obvious.

Heather is an excellent practitioner with an extensive skill set. Her deep understanding of the physiology of the human body enables her to treat her clients holistically and successfully. For me, sessions with Heather have been more effective than PT. She's the best.
