Giving Birth to Life - Heather Umberger, MS, CMT
My vision is to share informed conscious touch, mind/body tools, laughter yoga, and movement approaches with the intention of expanding the experience of wellness, fertility, creativity, and empowerment in all aspects of life...body, mind, and spirit.
For 23 years, I have educated, coached, and shared bodywork accumulating more than 10,000 hours of individual sessions. I offer innovative and effective mind/body experiences that are a result of my master’s degree in counseling, facilitation of the PSYCH-K® process, 19 years in the bodywork field, as well as multiple other trainings. Clients are confident knowing their session is, "so much more than just a massage." I receive abundant comments such as, "I can’t thank you enough for helping me with this," or "Today, I had my best yoga practice ever. The places where I had this sticking and discomfort were gone! It was directly related to your massage" and "your intuition and focus are uncanny."
As I assist clients with inventive yet powerful mind/body methods, individuals often shift on many levels to experience a greater sense of well-being. Clients regularly meet goals such as increased fertility and positive prenatal experience; pain relief (from issues stemming from arthritis, fibromyalgia, pre/post-surgical procedures, headaches, neck/back/shoulder, sports injuries); relief from stress, anxiety and depression; athletic pursuit; graceful aging; and wellness. I also assist individuals with a variety of specialized diagnoses such MS, Parkinsons, ALS, lymphatic challenges, heart disease, and cancer. They share that my skill and approach has been of significant help in their lives.
I draw on advanced bodywork methods such as trigger point, myofascial release, cranial-sacral, lymphatic, Orthobionomy®, Trager®, Berry Method®, Integrative Reflexology®, Nurturing the Mother® fertility/prenatal/postpartum, Infant Massage USA®, Laughter Yoga, the MELT Method®, and numerous energetic approaches. In addition, I am a certified facilitator of PSYCH-K® which helps individuals change limiting belief patterns and a Nia Brown Belt teacher.
