While studying Alexander technique with Patrick McDonald in London in 1980 she was first introduced to Swedish massage, finding the combination of those techniques dramatically effective in treating pain from a back injury.

In 1991 Heather moved to Findhorn where she first studied Esalen massage and became  a massage practitioner.

A few years later, in 2007,  Perry Holloman brought the certificated course in Esalen to Findhorn and she qualified as an Esalen practitioner.

The following year she studied complimentary therapies at Moray College and the year after qualified in Thai Yoga massage at the Sunshine School in Chaing Mai.


She also brings the learnings from studying  Lomi Lomi with Carrie Rowell and Bodies of Light with Tjitze de Jong.
