Heidi Kaivalya, LMT, CMTPT, L.Ac
Heidi has been in practice as a massage therapist since 2008 and completed her Master's in Acupuncture in 2018. Integrating acupuncture with manual trigger point therapy allows her to treat conditions in a more holistic manor while getting to the root cause of many orthopedic conditions and myofascial pain.
Heidi specializes in pain management and injury rehabilitation but also enjoys helping people manage the stressors of daily living with lifestyle modifications and home-care activities. Heidi's integrative approach to bodywork focuses on myofascial trigger point therapy and orthopedic acupuncture to manage pain and support your unique and individual goals.
Heidi believes effective bodywork can play an integral role in keeping things running smoothly while you focus on what matters most to you. Evidence-informed acupuncture and manual therapies are used to problem-solve specific concerns.
Raffi Kaivalya, LMT, CMTPT, CPT
Raffi is a solution-oriented, forward-looking Bodyworker. Since licensing in muscular therapy 2009, he’s continued to certify in a witch's brew of orthopedics, myoskeletal alignment, functional fitness, and many other advanced neuromuscular therapies. He believes that having a good laugh and a balanced diaphragm are two big secrets to staying young, and an efficient mover, as well as being a super human being. He has a strong movement background in hitting the trails, CrossFit, yoga, martial arts, and skateboarding, which have taught him both the benefits and challenges of certain activities. Nature has taken its course and led him to supplement more specific functional movement training, or neuromuscular re-education into his life as a means for maintaining balance and mongoose like reflexes. He also has adapted the extensive training he’s had with the Postural Restoration Institute® (PRI) into his practice, which aids him in his holistic approach and assessments.
Work is a type of worship for him and he practices what he preaches. Raffi consistently loves learning advances in the field of Bodywork and Movement Therapies, while he passionately aims to remain current with the needs of his clients.
In addition to running their private practices for over 10 years, Heidi and Raffi enjoyed doing sports massage for the Harvard Women's Swimming and Diving team for 8 years.
When not working with clients, Raffi and Heidi can usually be found exploring the great outdoors with their dogs.
To keep the body in good health is a duty,
otherwise we shall not be able to keep
our mind strong and clear.
