Therapeutic Massage to nurture your Essential Self ~

Theraputic Massage Sessions to nurture the Body, Heart and Mind

Come to beautiful Kealakekua Bay on the Big Island of Hawaii and let me and guide you into a deeply restful presence that therapeutically opens your body’s healing abilities and replenishes the entire being, leaving you feeling relaxed, revitalized and whole.

My Style: Listening to your individual needs, I combine my understanding of anatomy with compassion and heart-centered warmth to customize each session especially for you.  My approach to bodywork is influenced by Taoist mind-body practices and 5 Elements Theory.  My work is characterized by slow, nurturing long strokes & deep anatomical detail work, making the session both therapeutic and relaxing. I also use rhythmic rocking, compressions, stretching, & holding to encourage deep relaxation so the body, heart and mind can find its own equilibrium, increased ease and openness.

Modalities: As appropriate, I blend different modalities into therapeutic and relaxing bodywork sessions.  After sessions I offer self-care recommendations including stretches, yoga, subtle body practices and qigong.

  • Deep Tissue
  • Esalen (slow-long-flowing-integrative)
  • Table Thai stretching
  • Acupressure
  • Chi Nei Tsang (abdominal-organ)
  • Medical QiGong

Training: I have been practicing since 2006 and have over 1000 hours of massage training in a range of bodywork modalities.  I am certified as an advanced massage practitioner in San Francisco, CA  as well as in Hawaii: MAT-11847

Rates: $90 / 90 minutes      (Kama’aina rates often offered on Yelp)  Out-call massage services available for an additional fee

    Wonderful massage from Heather.

    She provided a deep tissue massage that felt very therapeutic and soothing. I was looking for deep tissue massage for some mid-back issues I was having. She knew exactly how much pressure was enough, and I was able to relax into it. Mixed with the Esalen style massage, it was 90 minutes of bliss.

    Definitely recommended!
