Heather trained as a nurse in Ireland, her native country, and lived in the USA for 38 years, where she studied and practiced many different healing modalities. She taught Polarity Therapy both in Ireland and America, which includes CranioSacral Therapy, Chakra and Sound Healing, as well as Spiritual Awareness/Knowledge, Movement, Communication Skills and Nutritional Wellbeing.
She experienced a diagnosis of breast cancer six years ago, and after some surgery, refused chemo and radiation to form her own healing path to wellness. She subsequently wrote "A Guide to Breast Cancer: A Whole Body A-Z for Prevention and Healing: A Conventional and Alternative Approach".
She is a Reiki Master and MariEl Healer, Quantum Touch and Therapeutic Touch Practitioner, Magnified Healer, Mind Body Yoga and QiGong Instructor, and has trained in Ericksonian Psychotherapy, and Psychosynthesis as well as Coaching, Addiction Rehabilitation and Detoxification. She includes the plant kingdom in her sessions in the form of flower remedies and Essential Oils.
Heather spent time in Central America with Dr. Rosita Arvigo studying Mayan Abdominal Massage, a wonderful technique brought to us by Rosita’s Shamanic Teacher, Don Elijio Panti to align the uterus.
Her diagnosis and recovery from breast cancer in December 2006 began a journey that deepened her insights into life and death, which she now brings to her work. After surgery, she declined the offer of radiation and chemotherapy and explored other ways to regain 100% life force. In this process she used both systems of medicine – conventional and alternative – finding both useful for more complete healing.
She currently lives in Salem, MA where she has a private practice in Whole Body Coaching, based on her years of practicing and teaching Polarity Therapy and other holistic modalities. She has been instrumental in creating several alternative-healing centers, and has another wanting to birth in the Boston area.
