A 2003 Graduate of Great Lakes Institute of Technology, Heather Hart began her career at the Hamot Wellness Center and local salons. Heather’s diversity of talents and profound passion for spiritual wellness has been a tremendous journey for her and a valuable asset for her clients. In 2005 she teamed up with a local chiropractor, which allowed Heather to only deepen and expand her horizons and gave her the opportunity to learn how to work with clients that had specific soft tissue dysfunctions and focused her work more on alleviating pain and correcting muscle imbalances. In May of 2010, she launched her own practice, A Compassionate Hart Massage Therapy.This led Heather to explore some other modalities to add to her practice and in fall of 2011 she received her Reiki Master Teacher Certification in the field of Energy Medicine. Her mission is to help clients attain a true Mind/Body/Spiritual connection and to live more consciously and comfortably within their bodies. Through massage and relaxation, her clients embark upon a journey of inner discovery and deep healing where they become aware of their physical/mental/spiritual imbalances, and learn to live a more healthy and vivacious life.
