Holistic Massage Therapy in Barcelona with Heidi Heatherwick

Overcome everyday physical and mental ailments by learning how to connect with your body and cultivate healthy habits.

— THE CHALLENGE —

Going from endless quick-fix cycles to improved, long-lasting health.

 I know what it’s like to feel exhausted, give too much and not have enough time for oneself. It is so easy to fall into the pattern of postponing “me time” – If you are a parent and juggling childcare, plus worklife, the chances are that giving yourself permission to receive a massage is a long lost dream waiting to be lit. How beautiful it is, unconditional love, but please don’t forget yourself in the process.

We rush through life as if we have all the time in the world, yet our life is so precious. We owe it to ourselves and to our families to stay healthy. What life choices have you made that benefited your health but soon found excuses to not continue?

Perhaps you find yourself:

↝ Feeling exhausted, overwhelmed with life?
↝ Feeling stressed, anxious?
↝ Have lots of ideas but don’t know where to start?
↝ Lacking sleep? Getting frequent headaches?
↝ Struggling with neck pain or stiffness in your shoulders?
↝ Lacking mobility in your lower back?

Keep calm, take a deep breath, and read on. With the right tools, mindset and guidance, you too can take consistent action towards feeling better — not just for a couple of hours, but in everyday life too!

— MEET HEIDI —

Hi! I’m Heidi, and I help devoted health-seekers like you cultivate long-lasting health and well-being.

I strongly believe Massage is more than curing a tension-related ailment: it’s giving attention, energy, and the opportunity for fresh reflection to a fellow human being. I have treated a variety of contemporary Ailments ranging from pain stemming from long periods sitting in front of the computer screens, pregnancy, multiple sclerosis, scoliosis, herniated disk, frozen shoulder, stiff neck and improving the functions of the internal organs. I also stress the importance of what we eat and the way we treat the natural environment.

My own pursuit of Health and love of movement and dance sparked the beginning of my career as a Massage therapist. After gaining my Diploma, my Training has included specialised intensive Massage courses in England, France, Greece, Thailand and Spain.

For the past 10 years I have developed my practice whilst working in spas and therapy centers in London and Barcelona and eventually established my own studio in London in 2014. In the beginning of 2020 I decided to close my London studio, wanting to focus more of my energy and time in Barcelona, where I currently live. I couldn’t be more happy with this decision. Excited to start this new chapter with you.

“Beyond treating my body, Heidi’s treatment helped heal my spirit — relieving stress and bringing peace into my life.”

Let me share my story. I was under huge stress a couple of years ago and was looking for help since none of the exercises of yoga or meditation were supporting my needs. After one of the consultations I was advised to receive treatment from Heidi. I expected to receive something like Thai massage but in the end it was something different, related not only to the treatment of my body but it was more about healing my spirit. She helped me to put in order my thoughts and my feelings which brought more peace into my life and let stress relief.

It was the first time when I had this kind of treatment and of course I had some questions which have been answered by Heidi with detail and deep explanation about this type of “massage”. I don’t say that it is unique when a person explains what she/he is doing but it was quite impressive because I found out new facts about my body and about the importance of the relaxation of the belly area. 

I was also surprised that Heidi was reading me like an open book when doing the treatment. She understood exactly my needs. Since that moment I visit Heidi constantly because it is important for me to feel this unique attitude, attention and care and of course she helps me to keep myself in good shape.

As I said it is  also about personality, Heidi helps you to restore not only your body but also your soul. I am sure that your contact with her can be different but I would 100% recommend to experience the world of treatment from Heidi on your own.

— MY APPROACH —

How can Holistic Massage Therapy help you feel healthier and more balanced on a daily basis?

Let’s remember that a good state of health and good food are necessary for our inner alchemy to happen. The way we treat and mistreat our precious body is often the starting point of our diseases and suffering.

A massage isn’t a quick fix — it’s a safe space to connect and listen to our body’s needs. The body and mind are connected: with the right intention and aligned action, we can heal them both side by side. Self care takes time and consistency.

In a world permeated with stress and an environment saturated with chemicals, we urgently need to take special care of our health capital.

I’m here to guide you and help you connect with yourself at a deeper level, so that you find more inner strength and clarity for any obstacle that life might throw at you. Starting with accepting where you are at and having the right tools to learn to love yourself more, to feel better, both mentally and physically. Each session is unique, adapting to your individual needs in every moment. 

Your body knows how to heal itself, sometimes it just needs to feel cared for and supported. Let’s make it happen together!

A picture is worth a thousand words. Take a peek at what you can expect from our sessions together.

— THE METHOD —

The 30-Day Rule: Gift yourself thirty days of compassionate self-care alongside me and find out how you can deeply transform your health.

Spiral 1 — Holistic Massage Treatments

Our bodies are wise beyond imagination — they know what’s good and what’s bad for us. Holistic Massage Treatments will be our gateway to connecting with yours. 

 Through touch, presence and care you will learn to listen to your body, along with its needs, aspirations, and wisdom. Beyond helping you feel calm and relaxed, we will help you communicate compassionately with your body, creating space for deep healing to take place.

 Our massage sessions will plant beautiful seeds that you’ll carry with you in your daily life.

 I use a variety of wonderful techniques to help you relax, overcome physical pain, and connect deeply with your body:

 

The Belly Massage: Also known as CHI NEI TSANG (internal organs massage). We digest our food, but it’s also fascinating to observe how we “digest” our emotions. Emotions will be projected on some particular organ: fear will affect the colon and kidney, create diarrhea or constipation depending on people. Anger is very often linked with the liver, and happens after too much food, alcohol or excess of sweets.

 By giving care and attention to our organs, we can create space for them to perform better and take better care of ourselves: not only physically, but emotionally too.

 The Osteothai Massage: A Thai yoga massage combined with Osteopathy techniques. This is a meeting between Eastern and Western therapies. I use my hands, thumbs, elbows, knees and feet to open the energy lines of your body, which helps recover the flow of your energy, bringing more balance. Passive and rhythmic stretches allow to regain openess and flexibility.

 The Oil Massage: Making sure that each session is personalised to your needs, I also have 10 years experience in oil massage – Swedish, Deep Tissue and Balinese. A combination of gentle and relaxing strokes, as well as vigorous pressure points stimulation, to stimulate the flow of blood, lymph and energy. I use high quality oils, mostly organic.

 

Spiral 2 — Nourish Your Body

After the treatment you’ll be offered one of my homemade healthy treats: A time for you to connect with all five of your senses – hearing,  sight, smell, taste, touch – giving yourself a moment to truly take in the session you have just received.

I love to cook: I hope to inspire you to eat a more balanced diet – open to always share my recipes with you. As much as possible, I like to use local organic products which have more beneficial nutrients and fewer pesticides. Everything freshly made. Just like the massage treatments, each wholesome homemade treat that is included in these sessions varies, keeping it a surprise and tailoring it to your individual needs.

Learning to become more mindful not only with our physical body, but also the way we choose to eat, which naturally will play a role in how we feel emotionally.

Spiral 3 — Integration

Your body needs two to three days to process the treatment, the treatment doesn´t end the minute you leave the massage therapy session.

I am here to support you. I want you to feel listened. There’s no rush. During these 30 days we will go at your own pace – free to share with me any information that you feel is relevant, whether it be stories from the past or a more recent incident. 

Theoretically, it is the brain that decides when to take action. But sometimes the brain gets short-circuited by the body’s nervous system, which can go into action faster than thought, or by emotional reactions which escape our conscious will. Through massage we will work on regulating your nervous system, helping you feel more grounded and balanced.

Spiral 4 — Follow Up with Aligned Action

Movement — I’m a big believer in the importance of daily exercise to maintain our physical and mental state. During these four sessions I will share with you techniques to help combat stress, anxiety and elevate your energy to a higher frequency. Giving you the confidence to continue doing the work all by yourself.

“Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.” – Viktor Frankl 

— TESTIMONIALS —

What are other long-lasting health seekers saying about working with me?

I’ve been blessed to work with dozens of people from all around the world. I hope that these words some of them have written about my work will inspire you as much as they inspire me!

Heidi’s concept on a profound massage treatment and a healthy treat is divine! For my lower back and neck problems, she combines techniques in osteothai, reflexology and craniosacral therapy. However, she always highlights how she’s listening to the body and adapting the treatment accordingly which is possible only for a highly experienced massage therapist.

Over a decade, I’ve visited many physiotherapists, naprapaths, osteopaths and podologists but Heidi seemed to be the first one who dared to get creative and give my body exactly what it was asking for. Thank you so much, Heidi, and see you soon again!

— Hanna from Finland

Heidi is more than a massage therapist. She’s a healer. She intuitively knows which combination of treatments work best for me.

The health drink and snack after the session add an extra special touch.

I highly recommend her.

— George from Cyprus

Wonderful experience with an amazing person!

Heidi is a very professional and kind person. For me these factors are very important when I am looking for therapy for me.

She did a fantastic job and had a very good connection with my body since the very beginning. Heidi focused on areas where I’m tight and also helped me to understand more about my body signals.

And the cutest thing was to have  a tasty breakfast with amazing homemade food.

As a result, I had an amazing day and I am looking forward to another therapy session soon. Highly recommended!

— Ksenia from Russia

I was very lucky that Heidi was recommended to me by a friend of mine. Since my birth I have scoliosis and my muscles are mostly very stiff and often I am in pain in the lower back and neck area. Heidi’s highly personalized approach, her knowledge and the relaxing and calming setting of the massage room helps my entire body, mind and soul to loosen up.

With her genuine caring and empathetic spirit she makes you feel in a different world and you leave her session feeling looser, lighter and happier 🙂

Heidi has my highest recommendation!

— Julia from Germany

Heidi has been my therapist for a few years now and for me, she is the solution for my lower back problems. She knows exactly how to read the body and with her techniques, she finds precisely where the problem is and how to fix it.

I can recommend Heidi to everybody who can not find a solution within their regular physiotherapist, besides that she is a very professional and nice person.

— Jeroen from Holland

Heidi has a natural ability to detect what your body needs and uses a variety of methods and techniques to balance and re-energise your body.

I recently had a serious attack of lumbar pain due to an untreated LLD that had caused scoliosis and a herniated disk. Heidi helped me tremendously working thoroughly on my muscles and helped me feel better than I had in years. I literally went from being given official sick leave, lying in bed all day and being prescribed heavy painkillers to walking  upright and feeling light and flexible with no pain at all.

— Marisa from London

I had such an amazing massage session with Heidi. She puts all herself in what she is doing and I could definitely feel it.

The space, the ambience and the energy were exactly what I needed.

During one and a half hours I had my body manipulated in such a good way. I was able to relax and let go of tension in my body and my mind. I really enjoyed it.

I highly recommend everyone to give themselves some self-love through Heidi’s touch.

Thank you for your professionalism and your sensibility.

Ps: After the session I had the most delicious vegan homemade cheesecake. Heidi can definitely work her magic.

— Aurelia from Romania

A few months ago my partner died and my whole being was so affected, depleted by his parting. And then I met Heidi.

She has supported me physically and emotionally. Heidi helped me to release tensions and to regain strength, to enable me to face my loss in a more active and conscious way. Thank you!

— CLOSING REMARKS —

Self-care has never been so important. Let’s empower your mind, body and spirit and cultivate a healthy and prosperous 2021!

You should never forget that your own inner health determines the balance of your environment, family, and social network. What you get in return will always be pure benefit. Therefore, it is your duty to yourself to monitor and maintain your health. Many people take better care of their car than they do their body. How many of those who run to the mechanic at the slightest suspicious noise in the motor go to the same trouble when they feel uncomfortable or unwell?

Let us learn to listen to our body and to its reactions, so we can be in tune with our “motor,” to avoid breakdowns and to make the most of its capacities.

“I expected a common massage… and found a healing journey instead.”

The first time I went to receive a treatment from Heidi was after going through a period of mental stress and suffering from neck pain. I expected a common massage soothing my pain but was surprised with a comforting belly massage, a wonderful conversation, some sweets and tea that made the afternoon perfect.

Her belly massage was not only relaxing and calming the tension in my body but allowed me to release the mental stress that I have been holding on for a while. The hours spent with her felt like a journey. She spoiled me with very delicious homemade sweets, tea and a freshly made smoothie comforting my belly after the massage. She made sure that I can eat everything asking me about my allergies prior to the treatment and found delicious alternatives for her recipes.

Heidi is a soul, a listener, welcoming you warmly, paying attention to all the details, someone that does everything with care and heart. I can highly recommend a treatment with Heidi and her magical hands and aura.
