She has been certified to perform Acupuncture and Cupping within the scope of practice of Massage Therapy since 2013 and frequently utilizes these skills in practice. Heather has attended multiple continuing education seminars and workshops, including most recently John Barnes Myofascial Release (MFR I and Fascial Pelvis) Craniosacral Therapy, and Postpartum Massage Therapy.
Heather built her practice in Oshawa, starting in 2007, working with patients at Oshawa South Chiropractic Clinic. Collaborating with Dr. Larry Down D.C. for over 13 years in practice, Heather established herself as an important part of the continuing care of patients with chronic pain, helping them to manage their pain naturally. In July 2020, she shifted her practice exclusively to a home based office space (separate side entrance with stair access).
She applies her knowledge of orthopedic assessment and swedish massage with advanced therapeutic techniques including Trigger Point Therapy, Frictions, Myo-Fascial Release, Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF), Soft Tissue Release (STR), and Manual Lymphatic Drainage. Techniques are applied to facilitate an improvement in the function, tone and mobility of the soft tissues of the body and to decrease overall pain.
Heather believes in empowering her clients by making recommendations for strengthening, stretching and hydrotherapy, as well as by educating them on muscular imbalances and increasing their postural awareness. Heather has assessed and treated a broad spectrum of clients with a variety of conditions including, headaches, migraines, plantar fasciitis, strains, sprains, tendinitis, whiplash, arthritis, fibromyalgia, scoliosis, adhesive capsulitis (frozen shoulder), piriformis syndrome and carpal tunnel syndrome.
