Her goal is to provide the best care for her clients and to help them become as pain-free as possible. She believes every body can benefit from massage therapy for relaxation, stress relief, pain management, injury rehabilitation or for maintaining optimal health.
Heather graduated from the Canadian College of Massage and Hydrotherapy in Sutton, Ontario in 1994 and began her massage therapy practice soon after in Charlottetown, PEI.

Before beginning your treatment, Heather will conduct a brief assessment with you to help pinpoint the source of your pain or discomfort. Following this, she will discuss your treatment goals and develop a personalized treatment plan with you.
An interest in complementary healthcare led Heather to study massage therapy after a career in graphic design. She has a Bachelor of Design in Visual Communications, Graphic Design (Nova Scotia College of Art and Design), and later on, an Advanced Diploma in Public Relations (Nova Scotia Community College). She worked in public relations for a number of years while practicing massage therapy part-time.
Outside of work Heather enjoys spending time with family and friends, hiking, reading, and exploring different parts of the world as often as she can. She has walked the Camino de Santiago three times and looks forward to walking more Camino routes or other long distance walks elsewhere.
Heather is dedicated to helping others and enhancing the well being of her clients. She is pleased to see existing clients and to welcome new clients into her practice.
She is a member in good standing with the PEI Massage Therapy Association (PEIMTA).
