Heather graduated from the National Massage Therapy Institute in Falls Church. Since graduating, she worked at a chiropractic office in Vienna and for Body, Mind, and Sole, before their merge with Holistic Touch. She has training in Therapeutic, Deep Tissue, Swedish, Sports Massage, Prenatal, Thai, Myofascial Release and Aromatherapy. Her passion, and what brought her to massage, is therapy. She always given massages– when she was a kid, her dad would get home from work, tired and sore, and she would rub his shoulders for him. Probably because of that, ever since she was a teen, all a friend would have do is say “my back hurts” and she’d be there, working it out.Her main goal is to take someone who has chronic pain or tension and make them feel better; not just for an hour or a day, but for as long as possible. Because every client is unique, she believes every massage should be too. She uses a combination of medium to deep pressure massage, trigger point therapy, muscle energy technique, myofascial release, and active isolated stretching, all uniquely structured to meet each client’s needs. After the massage she will often show clients stretches they can do at home that will help keep up the progress. She loves massage in all its forms and will happily see you for whatever reason you may want to come in, be it just to unwind, to pamper yourself with some aromatherapy, keep yourself tension free for an upcoming marathon, or for much needed therapy.In her free time she is, as her younger brother (RIP) liked to call, an old lady at heart. She spends a good portion of her free time knitting socks and Fair Isle sweaters, drinking tea, watching British detective shows or Antiques Roadshow, and playing with her many cats.

Silvy joined our team after relocating back to Northern Virginia from the San Francisco bay area, where she received her esthetics training from the San Francisco Institute of Esthetics and her master’s degree in holistic health education from John F. Kennedy University. Her education has supported her to finding her life path and purpose, which is to serve and heal clients on a holistic level. Treating someone holistically in skin care goes beyond manipulating product on a client’s face. It’s about using the face, the largest organ, as a map or guide in understanding the body’s internal health. Along with reading each client’s individual map, Silvy uses her training in energy medicine and health coaching to assist her in gaining a holistic (mind-body-spirit) view of why each client is manifesting certain skin conditions, and proper ways of treating them. Some of her favorite holistic treatments are auricular acupuncture, Reiki, reflexology, aromatherapy, and Bach flower remedies.

After wearing many different hats in my life, including being a nurse, I finally identified my true passion when I became an esthetician. Being an esthetician allows me to continue to care for people and inspires me to learn more about global knowledge of health, science and beauty. The act of caring for individuals with my hands feels ancient and sacred. I also love exploring health and beauty potions that make us all feel and look our best!
I don’t often stop thinking about our largest organ (our skin) but when I do I love to garden. I consider myself an avid garden curator. I love digging in the dirt and planting flowers, vegetables and especially herbs but I also sometimes enjoy watching the “weeds” grow just to see what they’ll become and ponder about where they came from.
Nathaly studied Psychology at NVCC and decided she wanted to continue her studies geared toward a more holistic approach. She discovered hypnosis 8 years ago and saw the positive effects it had on her life, also serving as a catalyst for her own journey of growth and self realization. She received her Hypnosis training at Virginia Hypnosis in Alexandria, Virginia. She is a Board Certified Hypnotherapist with the National Guild of Hypnotist, the leading national organization for hypnosis.
Nathaly is a Certified Holistic Life Coach studying at the Spencer Institute a coaching division of (NESTA) National Exercise & Sport Trainers Association. Accredited by the Board of American Association of Drugless Practitioners (AADP).
As a Usui Reiki Practitioner, she often times incorporates crystals, incense, essential oils, and angel cards in her sessions. She is fully devoted to assisting others on their journey, wherever they may be.
In her free time Nathaly enjoys reading, writing, traveling, nature walks, sipping tea and practices meditation daily.
Lindsey lives, eats, and breathes, the outdoor air. She has always incorporated movement into her regimen through soccer, basketball, and triathlons. As she grew older (and wiser) Lindsey learned to incorporate mindfulness into her daily routine through yoga, and went on to guide others through movement as a certified yoga instructor (RYT-200, 85-CPYT). Although physically fit, Lindsey suffered from years of chronic sinus infections, digestive distress, and a multitude of misdiagnoses and shrugs from doctors, (not to mention carrying extra weight around her belly, despite high intensity work outs). In 2014, Lindsey decided to take back control of her life, starting with not only “what” foods and products she allowed herself to consume, but the “why” behind it. Therefore, she looks at life in a holistic sense (stress, food, relationships, finances, etc.). Her night sweats turned into sound sleep, and her digestive grumbles disintegrated as her belly and soul started to overflow with knowledge of what her body needed to thrive. Lindsey lives by the mantra of “bioindividuality” or just because it works for me, doesn’t mean it works for you! After seven years with Fairfax County Public Schools in their Early Childhood Special Education program and completion of the Integrative Institute of Nutrition, Lindsey left her 9 to 5. Lindsey fully immerses herself in facilitating motivated individuals to create lifestyle and nutrition goals to support stronger immunity and self-empowerment.
