Heather Willis, LMT, CMT #71325
I am a Board Certified Therapeutic Massage Therapist in the state of California with the CAMTC, a Licensed Massage Therapist in both Sacramento & El Dorado Counties, providing outstanding therapeutic massage services. I am an Insured and Certified Massage Therapist through ABMP, all in good standing. I am first responder CPR certified. I am an R.D.A. in good standing with the Board of Consumers in the State of California. I have had well over 500 hours of training in many modalities at Healing Arts Institute, formally of Citrus Heights, CA. Healing Arts was very well established in the arts and had been training and bringing forth outstanding Massage Therapists since 1990. I choose to further my knowledge through Continuing Education courses that I continue to attend throughout each and every year in which obtain additional ideas, methods, and modalities. I did an extened intern throughout my training to get further hands on skills as well as being mentored.
In my daily practices, I have chosen to focus on those modalities that I feel that my skills excel in and those that have touched my heart. I have served and continue to serve as a Therapeutic Massage Therapist in a Hospice setting as well as the Medical, Special Populations capacity, and developing Autism Services. I've offered volunteer hours to Mather Field Veterans Hospital serving those who served our country and have returned home.
It is my firm belief that a Massage Therapist can assist in the body healing itself. Whether the ailment is stress, muscular, injury, post surgery, energy related, or falls within the special population and requires a very specific nature of facilitation, therapists encourage, promote, the rebalancing within the body. We, you and I are partners in achieving this.
I am credentialed as a RYT 200 Teacher in Vinyasa. My first love in Yoga has always been Yin. I love a great Vinyasa Flow and Power Vinyasa too! In my Yoga offerings, I feel that a practice with intention, mindfulness, and presence is what allows us our best moments. It is in these moments of being truly present that expansion is possible, becoming stronger, softer, deeper in each pose.
In my spare time I love to spend time with my family, friends, and do anything outdoors. I enjoy gardening, Yoga, kayaking, hiking, biking, dance, camping, fishing, and swimming. I am highly creative, love wood-working, painting, and doing DIY projects.
