"There is nothing more rewarding then seeing a client transform on my massage table. People come in with a variety of complaints and usually leave with less pain, less stress in their tissue, and a feeling of HOPE! 

Heather has been actively working in the health and wellness field for the past 25 years. She served as a personal trainer and activities director at The Ridge Tahoe in Stateline, Nevada and as a Physical therapy aide at the Sierra Spine Care Clinic in Carson City, Nevada. Heather holds a lifelong passion for health and wellness. In her practice she looks beyond the physical manifestation of pain. Pain and discomfort come from our work, play, emotional and mental health, and postural patterns. She does not believe in "no pain, no gain". As a practitioner she listens to the tissue, only going as deep as the tissue will allow. By going in slowly and melding with the tissue she is able to work very deep without the discomfort usually associated with deep tissue therapy. The results in very effective while maintaining the relaxation aspect of massage that everyone expects. Each session is catered to the specific needs of the individual.
