Licensed Massage Therapist
Hi! My name is Heather, and am a mindfulness enthusiast! I have been a licensed massage therapist and yoga instructor for over the past 8 years now. We have one body in this life time and it is our duty to take care of it day to day, and that includes maintenance through both manual therapy and relaxation. I offer a diverse practice including a variety of modalities. Some of these modalities include hot stone, deep tissue, reiki, aromatherapy, reflexology and all of the little tips and tricks that I have learned along the way through experience. I am delighted to give those who would like homework some stretches and/or breathwork tips to take home with them after their session. Each body is unique, as is each therapist. I do my best to accommodate the needs of each and every client, keeping in mind that this is a time of meditation as much as it is your time to receive body work. The line of communication is always open, but you are in control of how much or how little we talk during your session. I look forward to working with you! Take care.
After an undergraduate exploration of the alto saxophone and music education, Shawn switched gears onto an alternate path that could combine his love for artistic expression with the desire to stay physically active in the workplace. Practicing the art of automotive vinyl wraps and custom graphics for eight years allowed him to perfect his skills in a challenging and fast paced environment. Coincidentally, it was during this career that Shawn discovered the important benefits of regular massage therapy sessions for working bodies. Following a few unproductive attempts of advocacy to his fellow colleagues about the positive impacts of this ancient practice, he became motivated to begin studying the modalities that brought him so much mental and physical clarity. With the completion of a 625 hour certification course in VT, he became dedicated to providing clients with the same level of therapeutic relief that brought him to cherish massage therapy. Shawn’s intuitive bodywork technique employs a mix of conventional modalities like Swedish and Deep Tissue with a specialized method called Soft Tissue Release. This allows each customized session to concentrate on anything from deep relaxation to acute sports injuries or chronic pain. Being part of the team at Elemental Massage Therapy allows him to effectively combine his past knowledge and experience into a healing harmony of methodical multitasking.
