Heather Snowdon

Soft Tissue Therapist

Heather is a newly qualified Soft Tissue Therapist having just completed her first year of the HND Sports Therapy course at City of Glasgow College. Heather will be providing massage at Heather Lodge over the summer months before returning to college to continue her studies in Sports Therapy. She will also be working at weekends and holidays while she is home on the island.

Heather is qualified in Swedish massage incorporating muscle energy techniques, myofascial release, trigger point therapy and soft tissue release. These techniques can be used to provide both a relaxing massage and also to target areas of pain and tension. Heather can also advise on aftercare exercises to continue at home.

About Us

In 2017 a loose cooperative of holistic practitioners came together, seeking a centre to further their work. They found Heather Lodge. The group’s members live on Arran and work mainly with regular clients, some with chronic medical conditions, often with the support of local charities — ArCaS and the Mary Davies Trust.

Heather Lodge, set in the grounds of the historic Douglas Hotel, was originally a stable, but has been in use as a private dwelling for many years. There is an attractive and secluded garden. The premises provide several therapy rooms and a healing ambience. Plans are afoot to develop facilities for small groups, including yoga, mindfulness and Qi Gong.
