Heather Russelle

I am an intuitive massage therapist with 16 plus years of experience, a Reiki Master, and Shamanic Practitioner. My goal is to help you to let go, relax, heal, and to feel good in your body on the path to wellness and well being. My treatments are focused, intuitive, connected, and nurturing. My hope is that you can discover how to let go and heal through relaxation and therapeutic bodywork. I have many different modalities that I use in my treatments depending on the need of the client that day. For therapeutic massage my modalities are: circulatory/swedish, fascia release (fascia flow), reflexology, and craniosacral. For energy balancing healing I use: Reiki, polarity therapy, Quigong and shamanic healing. I also facilitate educational spiritual classes and circles in order to share my gifts and to help others find their own.  I am so excited and thankful to be a part of your healing journey! 

I was born and raised in beautiful Humboldt County, California, land of the redwoods and jutting oceanside cliffs. In 1996, I was introduced to Reiki and spirit healing from a woman named Sumiko. In 2000, I set off on a roadtrip across the country to find out what it meant for me to be a healer. In 2002, while living in New Mexico I received my first Reiki attunement. Shortly after, I enrolled in The New Mexico School of Natural Therapeutics to earn a certificate in Massage Therapy and Natural Therapeutics. During my training I learned about bodywork, herbal and homeopathic remedies, essential oils, working with energy, and how the mind, body and spirit work together.

In life we have many teachers, some we choose, and some who choose us.  Over the years I have been lucky to meet some amazing teachers who have helped me tap into my true gifts. In 2014, I studied with John Chandler to become Reiki II attuned, how to “see” and feel energy, and how to balance chakras.  I also learned how to work with psychic techniques, meditations, and breath work. During this time I also learned more about my own gifts and how to hone and use them. In 2016, I began studying with practicing shaman and educator Mara Clearspring. After two years of training I am now a shamanic practitioner, an initiate into the rites of the Munay-ki, and also a Reiki Master.
