Welcome to Heather - our new grad therapist
Heather moved to NZ from the UK with her partner in 2011, where they initially started in Wellington, before the wind got too much! After several years on the North Shore of Auckland they felt like a change and relocated to Christchurch in 2019. Part of this change for Heather included a change in profession; after 24 years as a registered mental health nurse she felt it was time to move on and explore other approaches to support people.
She enrolled with the New Zealand College of Massage (NZCM) in July 2019 and completed the Level 5 Diploma in Wellness and Relaxation Massage. Earlier this year she gained her Level 6 NZ Diploma of Remedial Massage Therapy from the New Zealand College of Chinese Medicine.
Heather is passionate about the many natural positive benefits massage can have on the mind and body. So, if you are experiencing pain or muscle tension or are struggling with stress or anxiety please come and check her out - she looks forward to meeting you.
When she's not working, Heather enjoys escaping into nature and has experienced many of the Great Walks in NZ and her local ones in the Port Hills. New Zealand also inspired her to take up running, and has completed 11 half marathons, and has a dream of running an ultra - although completing a full marathon would be come first! Heather's recent source of adventure is a bit louder and faster: her Royal Enfield Himalayan 400cc. This is a real adrenaline rush! Her confidence is building although she claims to "still be a tad slow on those bendy, twisty roads."
