All About Me
My name is Heiko and I'm a dedicated practitioner of holistic medicine. I love empowering patients to understand their bodies and discover the gentle power of the healing arts.
My love for massage started long ago when I was a kid practicing massage on my mother after her long shifts at work.
Fast forward to ten years ago, I finally experienced my first professional massage and I became hooked.
Since inception, I started seeing a massage therapist every few months for a relaxation Swedish Massage. In my mid to late twenties, I then started seeing LMTs for lower back and neck pain due to working long hours in restaurants, and I’ve seen marvelous results since! However, due to the acute pain I was experiencing while working, I took pain killers regularly, which ended up exacerbating my chronic kidney failure (which I didn’t know I had until it was bad). So, post diagnosis, I had to rely on massage therapy and strength building to help me manage the pain without any pain killers.
Since then, I’ve learned so much and have become a true believer of the benefits massage therapy can provide for those suffering with acute and chronic pain, without having to use or at least limit the use of painkillers.
I have made it my goal to help shift the mindset of massage from something luxurious to being a more holistic approach for pain management. If you are suffering from muscular pain, I’d love to chat and see what I can do for you to help relieve or eliminate your discomfort.
