Heidi Lauber has been practicing manual therapy as a licensed massage therapist for over 13 years. She has been especially interested in the fasciae from the time she studied at the West Coast college in Vancouver and has specialized her manual skills, knowledge and teaching capacities to this end. Her love for the fasciae drew her more deeply into a relationship with the intelligence of the human organism which she is perpetually amazed by. This led her to study craniosacral therapy with the Upledger Institute a decade ago. She continues to deepen her understanding of this work by studying biodynamic therapy with Dr. Michael Shea as well as with Body Intelligence Training. Heidi is licensed in British Columbia but lives and practices in Calgary, Alberta where she, her husband and their dog play in the mountains and the snow.
