Heather Hurry, Registered Massage Therapist
"The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn the past, worry about the future, or anticipate troubles but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly." - Buddha
Heather is proud to have grown up in the small town of Revelstoke BC. She graduated as a Registered Massage Therapist from the Okanagan Valley College of Massage Therapy in 2004. In her third year of school, she completed a 75 hour internship at the prestigious Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel after which she was offered a permanent position there. During her four years of experience at the spa, Heather appreciated the fast paced environment and working alongside a dynamic and cohesive team to uphold its world class precedence.
As a lover of the outdoors, Heather moved home to snowboard Revelstoke Mountain Resort in 2008 and started her own business, "Ahh Massage Therapist". Balancing the demands of her own private practice with an active lifestyle of hiking, biking and making time to enjoy family and the community, she was able to reap the rewards of a holistic approach to business. This commitment to self-care and retreating in nature brought a whole new perspective to the healing relationship between client and practitioner which she is still dedicated to today in her practice.
In 2010 Heather moved to Victoria and has been in love with the West Coast ever since. She and her husband enjoy walking their Sharpei Olive, supporting the Arts and Culture of Victoria and the practice of yoga.
With 14 years of experience in her field, Heather appreciates all aspects that massage has to offer whether it be deep tissue, maternity, hot-stone or relaxation. She has taken Manual Lymphatic Drainage, Zero Balancing, Reiki, and Gary Schweitzer Deep Tissue Techniques to enhance her client’s experience. She values massage primarily for the chance to continuously learn for the betterment of her clients and she looks forward to sharing her diverse range of experience with her clients at Victoria Community Acupuncture + Spa.
