Biography

Heidi believes deeply in the healing power of connection through massage and developing relationships with her clients. She specializes in helping to relieve pain, increase circulation, and improve mood. She offers reflexology, therapeutic, prenatal, sports, and deep-tissue massages, as well as integrative bodywork. Her clients often describe Heidi as a healer. In truth, she knows that much of that healing comes from within the body, and she enjoys helping that process.

Heidi recently moved to Massachusetts from Arizona, where she had her own massage business for nineteen years. She has worked closely with chiropractors to aid their therapy, and as a certified hot yoga instructor, has aided yogis in augmenting their yoga practices.

Heidi believes she has the best job in the world, one where people look forward to coming in and feel great when they leave. Heidi has a husband and three kids, whom she enjoys very much. She is a native of Arizona, but is enjoying the Boston area, the people and all the culture the city has to offer.

Services Offered

Services Offered:

Deep Tissue Massage

Quite different from “a Therapeutic Massage with Extra Pressure,” our Deep Tissue Massage focuses on releasing muscle restrictions (adhesions) and re-balancing structural tension (holding patterns) running through the several layers of soft tissue (muscle). Deep Tissue Massage requires a much slower pace than our Therapeutic Massage and more than one session is usually necessary for better results and/or resolution. Very effective if you have strained a muscle resulting in limited (and possibly painful) movement.

IMPORTANT: While it is not unusual for some people to experience bruising and pain for several days following treatment it does not happen to everyone. Soon the pain will decrease and you will begin to experience a range of movement you haven’t had for a very long while. Eventually, that every-day pain thing will be just a distant memory.

PLEASE NOTE: 30-MINUTES WILL ONLY ALLOW ENOUGH TIME TO WORK ON ONE REGION OF THE BODY (muscles of your thigh, calf, forearms or hands, etc.). One hour is highly recommended for your first session.

Integrative Bodywork

AN ACUTE INJURY USUALLY OCCURS WHEN WE’VE PUSHED OUR MUSCLES BEYOND THEIR NORMAL RANGE-OF-MOTION OFTEN RESULTING IN PAIN.

Integrative Bodywork combines several healing bodywork modalities with therapeutic massage. Some of those modalities might include: CranioSacral therapy, Trigger Point therapy, Myofascial Release, Deep Tissue, Positional Release, Neuromuscular Facilitation, Reiki, and acupressure. Very effective in treating some chronic pain issues such as sciatica, acute injuries such as whiplash, sports-related injuries, carpal tunnel and other repetitive stress injuries (RSIs), plus physical traumas such as accidents involving falling-down, bicycling, and automobiles.

1-hour usually gives the therapist enough time to focus on those areas of the body associated with the pain or injury. Several treatments are often necessary to understand and resolve the issue(s).

Prenatal Massage

This is one of our most appreciated massages. Our 1-hour Prenatal Massage can help you sleep better and even boost your energy. Change, even a welcome change, is stressful. A soothing massage which helps your muscles adapt to the changes your body is undergoing, and can help you more easily adjust to the many physical and emotional changes happening to your body during pregnancy.

Pregnancy creates a multitude of changes in the body, mind and spirit. Let us help you adjust to them gracefully with reduced pain and discomfort.  Prenatal Massage can help you sleep better and boost your energy. Your therapist will communicate with you about where you are in your pregnancy and will make adjustments to your session accordingly. Depending upon your need for comfort, prenatal massage can be done in a side-lying position, bolstered with pillows and blankets. Your health & comfort is our first priority.

If you are experiencing a high-risk pregnancy, please be aware that massage can be contraindicated in certain situations. It that’s the case, we must ask that you please be prepared with a written note from your doctor stating that massage is not contraindicated for you at this time.

Please indicate when making your appointment how many weeks along you are in your pregnancy.

PLEASE NOTE: A Prenatal Massage lasting 1-hour or longer is recommended for your initial session.

Sports Massage

If you’re a runner, we are going to concentrate on your legs; if you’re a swimmer, we will spend more time on your upper body and hips; a cyclist, your hip flexors, quads, ITB, calves and upper trapezius will likely be targeted.

A sports massage therapist may use their forearm or the palm of their hand to bear down on the muscles in your legs and back to separate and relax them and their fingers to put direct pressure on a muscle in spasm, which can be painful but will reduce your pain later. Along with massage we’ll combine deep tissue massage and stretching when necessary to help maximize your muscles’ potential.

PLEASE NOTE: A 1-hour session is recommended for your initial session/evaluation.

Therapeutic Massage

OUR SIGNATURE MASSAGE. Blends a general Swedish-based massage with muscular therapy techniques to reduce significant tension due to either muscle strain or excessive stress. Some discomfort may result during treatment but a renewed sense of ease and feeling relaxed should last for several days. All sessions are customized for individual needs.

With that in mind, we ask that you please communicate with your therapist about the technique and pressure to be used. You may need to upgrade to one of our Advanced Bodywork modalities (see Integrative Bodywork or Deep Tissue Massage) if your pain involves several muscles or fascial lines. But if your wish is to feel relaxed and still have some of your pain & tension reduced our Therapeutic Massage is probably right for you.

PLEASE NOTE: 1-hour is recommended when it’s your initial session.

At MTW we strongly feel that because you have a tension pattern that is unique to you, your session should be customized to meet your individual needs/issues. Our therapists are skilled in many healing modalities which they combine to provide you with a truly therapeutic experience for your mind, body and spirit. Our hope is to educate and encourage you to be an active participant in your own health and wellness.
