Heather has been a certified massage therapist for over 20 years, and has a deep passion for helping people improve their quality of life.
As an NC LMBT, Heather is qualified and AIMLA certified to practice and offer FDA and NFL approved Class IV Deep Tissue Laser Therapy (DTLT). She brings her knowledge and combined services to the general public, which is rarely available. Her qualifications include, but are not limited to over 800 classroom hours to become a Certified and Licensed Massage Therapist; thousands of hours of practical experience; maintained four massage and bodywork licenses to practice in several states; and currently holds her North Carolina State License to practice Massage and Bodywork Therapy (LMBT #15582).
In 2014, Heather developed sciatica due to a combination of extreme exercise and excessive travel. Receiving no relief from the pain, or improvement in her condition from Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS), Massage, and Chiropractic therapy, Heather was willing to try anything that offered the possibility of relief, as long as the treatment did not include medications and/or surgery.
In June 2014, her Chiropractor suggested that she try Light Therapy, also known as Class IV Deep Tissue Laser Therapy. Laser Therapy is an FDA and NFL approved modality that reduces inflammation and increases circulation, which ultimately results in pain reduction. Laser Therapy is non-invasive, fast acting, and effective in treating acute pain, chronic conditions, and post-op pain.
The results were astounding for Heather! After the first 5 minute laser treatment, her pain was reduced by 50%. 24 hours later she had a follow-up 10 minute treatment, and the pain was completely gone.
Since the injury was only a few months old, and aggravated by repetitive sitting, Heather continued treatment to make sure the pain would not return. After four more 10 minute treatments, she felt renewed and revitalized!
Heather was fortunate to be able to purchase her own Deep Tissue Laser machine, so that she and her family could live a more pain-free and active life.
The amazing results sent Heather on a journey to realize her dream of helping others with combining Deep Tissue Laser Therapy with her extensive training in therapeutic massage. The journey has been long, but now her dream has come to light with the opening of Spa Photon in July 2016.
As a Licensed Massage and Bodywork Therapist (#15582) and AIMLA Certified Class IV Deep Tissue Laser Therapist, Heather is able to help others improve the quality of their life and to help them live a more active and pain-free lifestyle.
