Heather Payden-Williams graduated from Headlines Academy of Massage in Sept. 2001. For the past 9 years she has worked in physical therapy doing treatment work and sports massage (3 years). In July 2006 she started her own massage business and has been having a blast ever since. She is a lifetime learner that has been studying various massage techniques like Reiki, MLD, Acupressure, treatment work and MFR. She has a BA degree in Psychology with an Art minor from Chadron State College and looks forward to starting graduate school at SDSU in fall of 2010 to eventually be a counselor (LPC-MH).
In 2009, she noticed a shortage of available CEU classes for massage therapists in the West River, South Dakota area. So, after completing the requirements for the NCBTMB certification, Art of Teaching was created. Every class that Art of Teaching offers can be used for South Dakota CEU’s for massage therapists and these classes qualify for maintaining the national certification as well.
