Heather Koubek-Jameson graduated from Healing Hands Institute of Massage Therapy in January 2002 and has been practicing massage therapy full time in NY and NJ since then. She is licensed in massage therapy (LMT) in NY. Prior to obtaining her degree in massage therapy, Heather was working as a licensed social worker (LMSW) for 8 years in various medical settings throughout the 5 boroughs. Incorporating her experience as a social worker has only enhanced her role as massage therapist as she is able to see and address the relationship between a clients emotional and physical issues. Her specialty is in more gentle therapeutic bodywork modalities, such as Manual Lymphatic Drainage, which provides immune and post surgical support, and CranioSacral therapy, which addresses both chronic and acute emotional and physical issues, and the complex relationship between the two. She continues to expand her expertise through extensive training in Manual Lymph Drainage, and CranioSacral Therapy (CST), which is her passion. She has been practicing CST since 2010, working with clients who feel stuck emotionally or physically. Working at the client's comfort level, this modality gently addresses deeper restrictions in the body caused by physical or emotional trauma.
