Relieve pain, release stress, learn targeted self-care
Are you finding yourself wondering how to make plans for your physical and mental wellness these days? Do you feel like you need self-care but aren’t sure how to access it safely? COVID-19 has created a significant shift in how we function.
No matter what life looks like for you right now, your well-being should not take a back seat.
At Sherwood Massage, I am thrilled to offer virtual wellness. Online appointments are available as a stand-alone healthcare program. They are also suitable for follow-up care after an in-person massage. This is an excellent option for those who need help with:
Shoulder Pain & Mobility | Stress & Anxiety | Migraines & Headaches | Low Back Pain | Sports Recovery & Maintenance
How Does a Virtual Wellness Visit Work?
I will send you a secure Zoom link that you can access on any computer, laptop, or mobile device with a camera and microphone. The virtual room is as secure and confidential as if you were on-site in the clinic.
Just as with an in-person appointment, you are in control of your time. You are free to ask questions and share information. My job is to listen and support you through guidance and education.
We will work together to set manageable health goals, and I will teach you tangible techniques to address your concerns. You get a customized self-care routine that works with your schedule and your body. I provide resources when appropriate, and you receive a detailed visit summary after each appointment.
My ultimate goal is to educate you about your pain condition and how to build body awareness. This teaching should empower you to pursue your wellness, even when you can’t physically come to the office.
Why Should I Consider Virtual Wellness?
"Admittedly, I was a little unsure about virtual appointments, but now I can’t imagine not having that option! First, it saved SO much time. And having the appointment at home and being able to do the exercises in my own space with my own items, was not only more comfortable, it made it easier to remember how to do them once the session was done.
Heini came to the first appointment ready to help. So many times when you go to seek help, all you get from your first appointment is another appointment. Right from the first session Heini came in with a plan to help me start feeling better immediately. She understood my concerns and addressed them, listened to my feedback on what worked and didn’t work for me, and provided alternatives. And the follow-up was superb – I finished feeling like I had a game plan to help me achieve my goals.
I’m a skeptic and slow to change, but this was a great experience, and I can’t recommend Heini highly enough.”

The Virtual Wellness Process
These appointments begin as a series of three weekly sessions. I also spend time before and after each appointment preparing for our meeting and building your personalized self-care plan.
SESSION ONE (45-60 MINUTES)
This appointment includes a thorough consultation about your concerns and goals. There will be time for questions and for me to get a clear picture of what’s going on and how I can help you. We’ll set a goal and discuss your schedule and any barriers you might face, as I want to make sure the self-care plan is doable and realistic. I will also show you a few simple techniques to start with at home.
SESSION TWO (30-40 MINUTES)
During this visit, we will check in and adjust. After reviewing your progress and hearing your feedback, I’ll explain your personalized plan. We will go through all of the exercises together so that you feel comfortable doing them on your own.
SESSION THREE (30-40 MINUTES)
This appointment allows us to review and celebrate your progress. We will have time to cover any feedback and questions you have about your self-care plan. The third session also provides an opportunity to reassess and make any necessary changes to your routine.
After your third appointment, we will look at the best option for moving forward. Should you continue with the self-care plan at home or schedule another follow-up? Or perhaps it is time to set our sights on the next goal.
