About us

Hey there! 

Thanks for dropping by to get a glimpse of who we are. 😊

HECM Wellness stands for empowering men to build a legacy for their families. As women practitioners, we watch our men—husbands, brothers, fathers, cousins, and nephews—suffer from minor hurts that drain their energy and lead to complications that would have been easily avoided. We don't want that for you. 

Our mission is to partner with you and your doctor to provide personalized care—simple care that starts with grass-roots support. We focus on what's stopping you from the vitality of muscle, bone, and joint health.

We help you look at the challenges ahead. 

We arm you with the best and easiest tools to forge forward.

If your core values are Family, Clarity, Integrity, and Fun,

Our success team and I are here to help you bridge the gap between what is possible and where to start. You are never alone with us as we focus on your renewed Vitality and empowerment. Let's support you.

Have you ever felt like you're ticking all the right health boxes—eating the right food, exercising, sleeping well—but something's still off? It's like there's a piece of a wellness puzzle you're missing.

So, picture this: a friend suggests you see a functional medicine doctor. You're all in until you peek at the price tag...?

You then choose to dive into the world of lab tests for self-care, but science jargon is out of your head, and you don't see any connection. That's where we come in.

My job is to review your initial intake form and create a roadmap for you. We can refer you to a crew of doctors if necessary. Let's get you back to full vitality.

How Can A Holistic Massage Therapist and Health Coach Help Me?

Why can't we?

Massage therapists have daring and powerful touch to feel changes in connective tissues - muscles, joints, bones, fascia, and ligaments. Take osteopaths, for example, they can practice as general practitioners.  As a licensed massage therapist, I don't know it all... I often hit a dead wall when I try to help my clients with structural issues.

Now I know why. I added skills, training, and practitioner collaboration to bring that exceptional added support to massage and bodywork.  So, can a massage therapist help?

We are devoted to helping clients improve the shrinkage and hardening of their connective tissues so they feel relaxed without fear of tissue injury while exercising.

I am a structural nutrition practitioner. We educate you to help you understand what your doctor says and how to make a change.

Why Structural Holistic Nutrition?

We believe the cause of discomfort is not straight-cut. As bodywork and health coach practitioners, we focus on strengthening your connective tissues to create internal structural balance, so you have the strength your body needs.

Even with all this, we still make mistakes because of our individual, unique bodies. That's why we test, to take the guesswork out and focus on the body's unique needs.

We are grateful for the opportunity to join a group of research teams on cellular research. This research assessment is a game-changer for my life. Ask us about cellular research.

When you struggle to straighten your fingers or joints in the morning or want to continue enjoying that blissful feeling after a hypnotic massage, fancy letting us take a holistic look? Trust us to be there for you.
