Heather Lynne Newman BA, D.Phyt, CYT

  Heather began working in the field of holistic health when she was 18. At age 21 she was managing the Pointe-Claire Holistic Centre and writing articles on healthy living. She completed a major in Linguistics and went on to do a second major specialization in psychology, with a focus on behavioural neurobiology.

Shortly after graduating with distinction from Concordia University, Heather moved to British Columbia for its majestic natural beauty. She began to work for a medical herbalist in Vancouver and was inspired to pursue the path of botanical medicine. In 2016 she graduated summa cum laude from Pacific Rim College’s phytotherapy program, one of the most comprehensive herbal medicine program in the Western world. 

Heather is also an avid yogini and completed a 250hr teacher training at Ashtanga Yoga Montreal in 2011. Preferring to focus on the therapeutic aspects of yoga, she has taught yoga for mental health disorders and developed a yoga program for older adults in assisted living. She continues to teach private lessons to individuals with specific needs, including individuals with reduced mobility and chronic pain.

In 2012 she completed Usui Reiki training through Myorei healing and did subsequent attunements through Reiki master Nicole Langille. Reiki clients have reported deep relaxation, relief from anxiety, insomnia and pain.
