Transform Your Body: Make Food Work for You

Make Integrative Clinical Massage Therapy Work for You

Welcome to HECM Wellness!

We all know proper health goes beyond just eating fruits and vegetables. However, knowing where to start or how to stay on course can be challenging. That's why HECM Wellness makes it effortless for individuals over 40 who struggle with morning stiffness, bone aches, joint pain, headaches, and migraines to nourish their connective tissue the right way.

Our massage practice focuses on helping clients easily improve body movement, understand body restrictions, and nourish the tissue correctly without giving up too much of what they love. At HECM Wellness, we believe in gradual progress toward a pain-free, vibrant life. With our expert care, you’ll have a clear path forward, instilling confidence and trust in your wellness journey.

Who We Serve...

Helping You Feel Better Every Day

Do you have cold hands and feet, feel tired all the time, or struggle with tight muscles? Maybe you’re dealing with unexplained back, shoulder, or knee pain that’s getting worse. If you have conditions like fibromyalgia, Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, chronic fatigue, headaches, migraines, or auto injuries, we’re here to help.

At HECM, we offer specialized integrative massage and bodywork solutions for chronic pain management. Our advanced therapeutic massage techniques include deep tissue, manual lymphatic drainage, craniosacral therapy, and visceral manipulation. These methods effectively address nerve pain, inflammation, and tight muscle relief.

For some clients, we meticulously review annual lab work to identify any deficiencies affecting connective tissue health. Based on this, we design personalized functional wellness plans to kickstart the healing process.

Ready to feel better? Contact us today to start your journey to better health and well-being.

For functional nutrition structural support, we provide virtual one-on-one sessions, allowing us to focus solely on you. However, the bodywork session is an in-person service at our location in Falls Church, VA.

Imagine reconnecting with your loved ones, managing stress more effectively, and enjoying active hobbies with your spouse or partner. Picture yourself achieving a healthy work-life balance, staying healthy for your family, and meeting friends for a drink without guilt. You can have all this on your terms because you're in control. Let’s make it happen together.

If you dream of a simple transformation that will help you have the life you desire, contact us.


What Could Be Holding You Back?

Are you thinking, "I’m too old to start making changes"? Maybe you believe you don’t have the time or feel discouraged because you’ve tried everything and nothing seems to work for your condition. Perhaps the cost of testing seems too high, or you worry it will interrupt your other commitments. You might not like group programs or feel uncomfortable with online ones.

While these concerns are valid, understand that...


"Connective tissues are INTER-STATE of the body. Strengthening them enhances flexibility, supports organ alignment, improves circulation and hormone function, all essential for robust connective tissue health."

Believe it. Let's be your last stop for what is holding you back from the life you desire.

Get Your Energy and Vitality Back

Are you wondering, "How can I regain my vitality if exercise isn't for me?"

You might be dealing with constant joint aches, sleepless nights, and overwhelming exhaustion. Your joints are swollen, and your energy levels are at an all-time low.

What you truly want is to stop your legs from cramping at night, prevent your body pain from worsening, and have the energy to play with your spouse or kids. You long for restful sleep, relief from the nagging pain between your shoulder blades, and the ability to wear your shoes without pain.

Imagine waking up feeling refreshed, moving without discomfort, and having the energy to enjoy life again. Let us help you achieve that vitality and well-being you've been missing.


If this is you, we've got your back! You don't have to go through your pain alone. We promise not to sound like your wife or your mother. We make it simple for you to find lasting success.

Why our approach is different...

Genetically, we are all not built to run, jog, or muscle train all day. Some of us can't eat those foods we love to eat, while some of us have past injuries that unknowingly prevent us from moving as advised. We help you remove what causes your body's connective tissue to shrink, harden, or remain constantly in pain.


We provide:

  • Nutritional Support: We uncover what's sabotaging your efforts to manage your heart health to connective tissue vitality.
  • Personalized approach: Guided by lab testing as no one-size-fits-all approach. So, you develop a powerful vision of how transforming your health can improve your condition, happiness, and quality of life.
  • Partnership: We discover which foods and lifestyle habits can help improve what is sapping your heart health to connective tissue vitality.
  • Tools and Support: we give you the tools you need to address internal and external stress.
  • Bodywork: Manually remove and educate you on Rebalancing your connective tissue health.
  • Clarity: You'll get crystal clear on a step-by-step plan to improve your heart health to connective tissue vitality.

You'll be empowered to go on that bike ride with your spouse and kids in 120 Days.

Meet Your Integrative Licensed Massage Therapist


Hi, I'm Esi!

As an integrative licensed massage therapist at HECM Wellness, I'm often the first person you'll meet.

Many of my clients feel something is off in their bodies, even if they're not sick. This was my experience in 2003, and I've been on this journey ever since.

I've been a wellness practitioner since 2006 and a licensed massage therapist since 2013. I've touched countless bodies, understanding that organs, bones, muscles, and joints often need more support than massage alone can provide.

Listening to my clients' concerns has shaped my approach, blending massage therapy with functional nutrition to address your unique needs. I love this work and am dedicated to helping you achieve optimal wellness.


With my skills and experience, I am not just a service provider but a dedicated member of your healthcare team, committed to supporting your well-being. I am here to help you achieve your health and wellness goals, and I will work tirelessly to ensure you reach your optimal wellness.
