Heather Venables, BA (Hons), QTS, MISRM (Dip)

Clinic Owner & Soft Tissue Therapist, Sports Massage Education Tutor

Heather was born in Ohio and grew up in a small farming village before qualifying as a teacher and moving to England in 2003. After getting married, Heather and her husband moved back to his hometown in Cornwall. Outside of the clinic, you can find her exploring the local beaches and coastal paths (with a coffee, of course).

She decided to return to her passion for caring for others in the health and fitness industry (her original career path prior to teaching) after dealing with work-related stress and suffering from chronic pain following a severe back injury. As a result, she has a special interest in the connection between mental health and how we feel pain.

Her goal is to help as many people as possible who are coping with injuries, pain, and/or stress by providing soft tissue therapy, which combines massage, education, and rehabilitation to help you take control of your pain or injury.

Heather qualified as a Level 5 Soft Tissue Therapist after studying with the Institute of Sport & Remedial Massage (ISRM) at The Massage Training School in Exmouth. She has treated a wide variety of injuries, chronic pain, and musculoskeletal pain both in her clinic and for a short period prior to COVID, for the Camborne Rugby Football Club while assisting the lead physio.

Heather also teaches the Level 3 Sports Massage Diploma as part of the Movement Therapy Education team, and she has a keen interest in mentoring new therapists to help them become successful in their new careers. She speaks locally and nationally at events, such as Therapy Expo, as part of her voluntary role in the ISRM’s Forum Development Team, a team dedicated to researching evidenced based practice and supporting therapists in their learning journey.
