Registered Massage Therapist
Heather Walsh, RMT
Heather has recently graduated from the West Coast College of Massage Therapy, where she completed over 2400 hours of learning. In school she gained clinical experience working on conditions such as impingement syndrome, frozen shoulder, Thoracic outlet syndrome, carpal tunnel, headaches, chronic pain, stress and muscle tension, as well as treating people with neurological conditions and spinal cord injury.
She was drawn to the field of massage because of her long time passion for health and wellbeing, and love of helping people. She believes massage is an important part of maintaining healthy musculature and is a huge help in reducing the impact that stress has on the body.
She herself has benefited from massage throughout her life and knows first hand the difference it can make.
Heather approaches each patient with empathy and an understanding that she isn’t treating a condition, but an individual person with individual needs. She believes that the best way to start treatment is with an in-depth understanding of what may be causing the issue in the first place. Her treatment approach is a combination of therapeutic and relaxation. She believes relaxation has a powerful effect on the body and mind which can aid in a therapeutic treatment. Her treatments can include a variety of modalities aiming to reduce pain, improve circulation, improve function and promote relaxation.
Outside of massage therapy Heather loves all things outdoors. She can often be found hiking or camping with her family, foraging for edibles to cook for dinner, or most often watching her children play hockey and baseball.
