Making you feel better makes me feel great!
I am embarking on my seventh year as a massage therapist, and I love what I do. I feel privileged to be able to assist all kinds of people in their healing and well being.
I studied massage in Portland Oregon at East West College of the Healing Arts, and was licensed in December of 2004. Since then I have explored many styles of massage and discovered exciting occupational opportunities.
I've worked for Acupuncturists and Chiropractors. I spent a couple years working in Day Spas, and even moved to the roadless areas of the Costa Rican Rain Forest to do massage and teach Yoga at eco-resorts. Summertime usually finds me massaging the masses and performers at music festivals, concerts, and other events. It has been an exciting journey so far!
The product of all these experiences is a style of massage that I can call my own. I like to work deep while including Thai style stretching and specific Trigger Point Therapy with joint movement. All bodies are similar, but every body is different. My goal with each session is to tune in to what my client needs at that moment and assist a positive change in their body that they can really feel.
I currently reside in Portland, and am thrilled to be a part of the Dr. Dot Team! I look forward to working with you!

Hi there! I'm Heather and I have been providing therapeutic massage services since graduating from The Healing Arts Institute here in Colorado in 1997. After graduating, I immediately took a position providing rehabilitation therapy in a pain management clinic. I worked with motor vehicle accident victims, burn victims, people who had been injured on the job and people with long-term debilitating illnesses such as MS and cancer. This laid the foundation for my passion for providing impactful therapy to everyone I lay my hands on … which has been quite a few people. I struck out on my own, building a thriving practice as a Preferred Provider for Medical Doctors, Acupuncturists, Chiropractic Doctors, Physical Therapists and other health professionals that referred their patients to me for rehabilitation.
Inspiration brought me to the Denver metro area in 2005. I expanded my practice to include providing high level services to visiting performing artists and senior level executives as well as working with local charitable organizations. I count many of the high level classical and contemporary musicians and physical artists that travel through Denver as not only my clients, but my long time friends. I have found that the only way to facilitate health and wellness is to get to know my client and tailor my tools to their needs. Yes, I do intense, therapeutic work – but my clients love that I can get results without beating them up. I could list the many therapies I practice with, but it all comes down to bringing the right tools to bear at the right time and working in harmony with the signals your body is sending. And you will be different each time you are worked on … what worked last week may not be effective today. Your therapist should be responsive to those variations and only use what your body is calling for in the moment, rather than the latest fad move.
My large family (seriously – it's huge!) includes my two beautiful dogs, Oki and Sascha and we enjoy all the cultural events in Denver. We go from the First Friday Art Walk, to symphony on Saturday to tubing Boulder Creek on Sunday. Our boys are active football / wrestling / rugby players, and our girls are fanatic about softball and cross country. Believe me, my work is not done when I get home … they all line up for their hands on time. Every chance I get, I take my motorcycle through the canyons and valleys around Denver – there is nothing better to empty your mind and replenish your soul than the open road and no maps!
I'm proud and honored to provide therapy through Dr. Dot – she only hires the best and we work hard to make sure you get 7 Star Service every time. I look forward to working with you as we uncover the perfect balance of tools for your health.
