Biography

Heather graduated from Vancouver College of Massage Therapy and says that her schooling was what truly showed her where she needed to be in life, and this is it. She graduated near the top of her class with honours (an average of over 90% in all classes). She also won the school’s Heart Award for leadership, mentorship and clinical excellence, as well as first place in the Massage Therapy Association’s competition for her research report titled “The Effects of Massage Therapy on a Professional Opera Singer with Chronic Pain and Symptoms of Thoracic Outlet Syndrome”. Heather has spent a lifetime in music, going to university and majoring in performance. She won awards for her compositions and performances, and played with one of the top non-professional orchestras in Canada. It was studying biomechanics (how you use your body while playing instruments or doing your daily tasks) that caught her attention, and it has always been an interest. Heather believes in creating a team plan for her patients’ health. She incorporates changes in your work positions, stretches and other exercises into the long term plan for the best outcomes. In her spare time, you can catch Heather dancing many dance styles from Latin and Ballroom to Bollywood, playing piano and singing, or exploring the beautiful city of Vancouver with its excellent parks, shops and restaurants. She also has a passion for travel, which she enjoys with her husband.

Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?

I am an award winning Massage Therapist, with years of experience. I work in a truly integrated clinic, where you can rest assured that each practitioner's aim is your health and wellness.

What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?

Musicians (breathing and biomechanics) Neck injuries (chronic strain and whiplash) Spinal Treatments

What are you proud of in your practice?

I strive for excellence in everything I do. I have never stopped learning about my field, and I am always doing further research to get to the bottom of why each patient is in pain.

Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?

I enjoy working with whiplash and concussion, and being able to witness the incredible changes that can happen in patients. I also love working with musicians, having had personal experience as a musician myself.
