Heather Watne

Traditional Eastern massage modalities such as Barefoot Shiatsu and Thai Massage are received on a comfortable floor futon, recipient wearing loose clothing. This type of session includes massage, assisted stretching, pressure point work, and intention to treat the meridians (energy lines) that connect the acu-points, and bring the body to balance. Treatments are relaxing, yet often energizing; an excellent treatment for opening shoulders, back and hips, while not needing to disrobe. Traditional Eastern massage sessions last 75-90 minutes.
Lighter bodywork, such as Jin Shin Acupressure, Craniosacral work and Polarity treatments are also received fully clothed, but on a massage table. Lighter treatments can address injured areas, emotional distress, and help provide deep relaxation, helping your body to activate its own self-healing powers. Lighter modalities can be combined with massage and foot reflexology to treat the whole body, on the physical as well as the energetic level. Any length of session is appropriate.

Energy Healing such as Reiki and VortexHealing ® can be received either in-person at Dynamics, or non-locally, from the comfort of your own space. Energy Healing techniques work with Divine Energy and Consciousness to assist your body’s self-healing of both the physical body and the subtle energy bodies, that usually results in increased relaxation and a deeper sense of well-being. Energy Healing works by intention and activation in the Quantum Field, so lack of proximity does not diminish its effect. Sessions typically 45 to 60 minutes, but can add other modalities for a longer session.
Eastern bodywork sessions and CranioSacral work can also address difficulties with digestion and the internal organs, through abdominal work. Chi Nei Tsang and Hara work help to detoxify, rejuvenate, and relax the belly, navel and ribcage to assist in releasing both physical discomfort and emotional charges that reside there. Fascial release in the torso done in CranioSacral work can be liberating and allow the nervous system to self-regulate, releasing restrictions along the spine.

For your convenience, Heather offers sessions ranging from 30 minutes to 2 hours, Monday through Friday.
