The Therapeutic Touch, LLC was started in November of 2004, by Heather Atkinson, LMT, BA, NCBTMB. Heather has an Associate's Degree in Massage Therapy and continues to expand her experience and her certifications through earning continuing education credit hours. When you come for your first massage, you will be asked to fill out some forms that assist with treating you more effectively. These forms also help to determine if you have some health conditions that make massage a health risk, which must be discussed with the client prior to treatment. One such medical condition is pregnancy. There are myths and truths about massage during pregnancy; and Heather has been certified in the most basic form of pregancy massage since 2005. She can educate clients on these myths and truths, as well as perform pregnancy massage.
Pregnancy massage can aid women during pregnancy with common aches in their back, legs, and feet, as well as their neck and shoulders. It is safe and effective during all stages of pregnancy. Heather is also experienced in infant massage and can train parents on this form of massage, which can aid infants in forming closer bonds with their parents and even assist infants in forming good muscle movements for when they begin to crawl.
