massage therapy & mobility

With Heather Green

Your experience in your body holds a lot of the answers you are seeking. Learn your body’s language. 

Heather Green

Registered Massage Therapy & Mindful Mobility
250-650-9272 / heathergreenrmt@gmail.com

Heather is a light hearted individual who loves to laugh and help people rediscover their self-empowerment.

She helps her clientele gain symptom relief and deeper self-knowing by blending massage therapy and mindful mobility practices that she studies and uses herself. 

Heather finds that helping people explore safe movement, breath and constructive rest allows them to create safety within themselves and no longer fear movement or see themselves as ‘broken’. 

Pain and discomforts are normal, personal and always real. It’s how our bodies tell us something is up. 

Heather can help you dial in and understand your body’s voice and message with more clarity. You can develop the confidence to help yourself alongside the support and collaboration of professionals you choose to include on your wellness team. 

Heather is constantly challenging herself, whether it’s learning (very slowly) to roller skate, teaching herself how to knit or crochet, or studying American Sign Language.

1:1 Therapeutic Movement

Upon request, we can just spend time diving into movement. 

This is at a slightly lower cost as there’s no hands on treatment and is not billable to insurance. 

In this instance, you will be working with me in my capacity as a Yoga Therapist. 

Virtual or in-person.

Group Therapeutic Movement

These group classes explore broader topics and body structures, allowing you to dip your toes into the water and see what this can do for you, what it looks like, and how easy and comfortable it actually is.

In this instance, you will be working with me in my capacity as a Yoga Therapist.

Virtual.

Combining therapeutic movement with massage....

RMTs are required to provide assessment and rehabilitative recommendations at each appointment, alongside the manual therapy. 

Heather’s preferred method of accomplishing this is to incorporate neuromuscular repatterning and body awareness into her massages.

Your goals, interests and how well managed (or new) your symptoms are will determine how time is divided.

Client Testimonial
"Working with Heather helped me understand my what my body is doing and how to recognize what if feels like if I'm going too far. I better understand my body and how it moves."
Client Testimonial
"I experienced improvement in my hips and shoulders. In fact, I do some of the exercises at work for relief throughout the day. The classes were very thorough, and well explained."
Client Testimonial
"This [mobility work] is a different approach to physical therapy. It's not at all cardiovascular and I am never sore after a session. You don't realize what's causing much of your discomfort until you try this and your pain stops."
Client Testimonial
"What stood out to me was my increased awareness of how my spine and surrounding body parts were moving and interacting with each other. Especially the shoulder blade/spine connection."

Movement & Massage: I have been going to Heather for massage therapy for several years now, and she is the best I’ve been to. After years powerlifting and working a heavy labor job, I had ignored and struggled with many injuries including a bad back that would cause me to miss work frequently before I started seeing her. Not only is her massage fantastic for helping loosen and relax sore muscles, but she has also showed me how to stretch and use some yoga poses at home which has helped me be able to stay much more active. I highly recommend Heather. – Ray G. 

Group Class: These classes are therapeutic and aimed at helping you understand what your body is doing and to recognize what it feels like if you’ve gone too far. It’s not a traditional yoga class as such, but uses elements of traditional yoga poses to help you understand your body and how it moves. I experienced improvement in my hips and shoulders. In fact, I do some of the exercises at work for relief throughout the day. The classes were very thorough, and well explained. – Patty D.

1:1 Movement: This is a different approach to therapy. It’s not at all cardiovascular and I am never sore after a session. You don’t realize what’s causing much of your discomfort until you try this and your pain stops. – Sandra S. 

Movement & Massage: I have been a patient of Heather’s since 2013. I was looking for a massage therapist who would work with me to ease my aches and pains – as well as provide a pampered experience.

Heather not only works on your sore points but gives you tips and simple “do anywhere” exercises to work on between sessions. I followed her suggestions about exercise and life style changes – she even introduced me to a new tea! – Carol L.

Group Class: These classes are not a regular flow type yoga class. They go slower and focus on how your body moves and how to work with different body parts to strengthen, improve movement, and reduce pain. What stood out to me was my increased awareness of how my spine and surrounding body parts were moving and interacting with each other. Especially the shoulder blade/spine connection. – Judy G.

Movement & Massage: Heather listened closely to my descriptions of my problem areas and then came up with movements to address each one. It’s like taking your car mechanic out for a drive so he/she can actually hear what’s happening while you’re driving. Heather then used massage to further focus on on these areas.  – Client Testimonial

Movement & Massage: I have been a massage client of Heather’s for years. Following an injury, I began utilizing her massage and movement therapy sessions for muscle relaxation and to regain joint range of motion and functionality. Integrating the movement therapy with massage allowed the treatment to be even more effective and pain-relieving, and has restored my ability to return to the activities I love. Heather is incredibly resourceful and will work with you to target troublesome areas with therapeutic movement which can be done from home in order to prolong the benefits of her treatments. – Mackenzie W. 

1:1 Movement: I enjoyed that it was one on one and I didn’t have to leave my house to do a class. Heather is super knowledgeable and when she gets excited about explaining things it makes it fun to learn. I gained a deeper understanding of how the body moves as a whole, and if one part doesn’t move as freely as it should, how the body as a whole will respond. -Stef H.
