Heather intuitively and skillfully weaves together a myriad of modalities into a nurturing healing nest and allows the healing tapestry of each individual to emerge in all its complexities, uniqueness, intricacies, and beauty. Every journey is unique, and by honoring each individual’s authentic path, a deep, organic, and lasting healing can occur, potentially releasing them from debilitating core beliefs, unwanted conditioning, trauma, and pain. She draws upon the ancient wisdom of the healing ancestors, combined with the power of touch, breath, mindfulness, and with the support of neuroscience.
Heather has extensive training in anatomy and bodywork, giving her an in-depth understanding of human physiology. In addition, Heather is a biodynamic craniosacral therapist and reiki practitioner, which informs her extremely refined sense of touch and awareness. Heather is a trauma-informed provider who incorporates her training in Somatic Experiencing, TRE (Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises), Certified Clarity Breathwork Practitioner, yoga, and mindfulness.
“I was surprised at how quickly I gained strength…”
“It feels as if fate brought me to Heather, and at just the right time. I had been suffering for years from a complicated auto-immune health condition that left me sleepless and in pain much of the time. Western medicine and traditional talk therapy helped scratch the surface of what was going on, but it only went so far. Heather helped me uncover and process stored trauma in a way that helped me move forward.
In short, traditional talk therapy brought me to a place where I could say that my mother is an alcoholic. Heather helped me connect with how it felt to be a child of an alcoholic and how to process the complicated feelings that accompany the trauma I experienced.
I came to her broken and ready to be whole. I surrendered to the experience, trusting her guidance, and methods including Clarity Breathwork, and every session brought me new insight. I was surprised at how quickly I gained strength and began to feel more present. More alive. More myself.
Today I use my newfound skills to navigate the challenges life throws my way, I am on fewer medications and feel a greater sense of peace in my mind, body, and soul.”

“Heather possesses an amazing ability to inquire into the true nature of my discomfort and unpack it…”
“It is hard to put into words my many Clarity Breathwork and therapeutic sessions with Heather because each one is so magical and unique. I never know what to expect when I enter her office and always walk out hours later wondering what just happened. Originally, I had contacted Heather to relieve my back pains. Never did I anticipate that she would not only cure my physical ailments but also expand my emotional and spiritual awareness. Heather possesses an amazing ability to inquire into the true nature of my discomfort and unpack it on multiple levels of the mind, body, and spirit. Through our times together, I have gained tremendous insight into my true self and feelings. I cannot recommend her more highly as a therapist and spiritual guide.”

“(I) feel so immensely lucky to have had her by my side as a kind of doula of the soul.”
“After a session with Heather, I feel more myself, more comfortable in my own skin, more clear on what steps I need to take on my journey of self-healing. I find fresh insights and energy welling up as if from some awakened spring of knowing.
Heather has magic in her. I came to her with shoulder pain and found myself on a journey of deep emotional healing. It’s a journey she has inspired and supported with Clairty Breathwork and her bodywork, but the effects go far beyond our hours together. I can grow on my own for a good while, increasing in intimacy with and compassion for myself and others… but when I lose my way or life deals its blows, I know a visit with Heather will set me back on course. Her presence is truly a gift. For those Harry Potter fans, visiting Heather is like visiting the “room of requirement” – whatever it is I seem to need I can find it. Whether that’s a safe space to lean in and experience the grief locked inside my body, or just an opportunity to let everyone and everything go for a few blessed moments, our visits reveal and fulfill the moment’s most pressing needs.
I truly cannot thank Heather enough for all she is and does and feel so immensely lucky to have had her by my side as a kind of doula of the soul.”

“Her intuition is absolutely uncanny and informs her wise counsel and insights.”
“I have come to know Heather Swallow as a “Healer for All Seasons.” She is perhaps THE reason I have stayed afloat since 2016. She has been my guiding light through the death of both parents and some of my dearest friends, five surgeries (including two knee surgeries), and the stress that comes with the commitment of doing challenging work while supporting loved ones. She is as important to me as my primary care physician, orthopedic surgeon, glaucoma specialist, psychologist, and physical therapist. In fact, I rely on her skill and insight more than all the others combined.
Initially, I was referred to Heather by one of the top physical therapy practices in the East Bay as THE person they see for “a great therapeutic massage.” Over time, as our mutual trust grew, and as my life challenges unfolded, Heather introduced Clarity Breathwork and other healing modalities to unlock the places where I was stuck—physically and emotionally.
I’ve benefited greatly from Heather’s rare amalgamation of skills and intuitive nature. She is a master in massage, cranial/sacral work, Clarity Breathwork, somatic bodywork, TRE, and more. Also, her intuition is absolutely uncanny and informs her wise counsel and insights. Heather has helped me to reconnect to my physical body, and better understand my relationships with my husband, adult children, and parents. She has flung wide open the door to my spiritual side.
Heather Swallow is my Breathworker, bodyworker, therapist, and guardian angel, all wrapped into one very gifted Being.”

“Heather’s methods have led me to the greatest healing journey of my life.”
“My experience with Heather has been a life-altering journey. Her highly intuitive skills, coupled with bodywork, Clarity Breathwork, and Somatic Experiencing have led me to the greatest healing journey of my life. Once in the presence of Heather’s healing nest, all life is brought into perspective. Healing, nurturing, love, and compassion flow freely from Heather’s mind and body.
I feel immense gratitude and joy to be associated with this gifted individual!!

“I feel utterly safe, heard, empowered, and nurtured as revelations and feelings arise.”
“The journey I take with Heather when I enter her healing sanctuary is both full of intention and utterly devoid. Life unfolds and reveals itself very organically in her capable hands as I am guided by her prompts to follow the inward path of discovery. I feel utterly safe, heard, empowered, and nurtured as revelations and feelings arise. I am grateful and utterly blessed for the opportunity to have regular sessions with Heather, which I find healing and transformative, at the receiving end of her guidance, compassion, and love.”
