Heather Allen, MS, PT

Licensed Physical Therapist

Licensed Physical Therapist

Heather studied at Ithaca College in Ithaca, NY, earning her Bachelor of Science degree in 1999 and her Master of Science degree in 2000.  Heather's career in physical therapy completely turned around with the completion of her first Myofascial Release seminar.   She discovered a technique that could help ALL her patients, regardless of diagnosis, find a more pain-free, positive, healthy way to live.   Heather has a personal appreciation for myofascial release work as it has helped her recover from a dislocated knee and shoulder, shoulder reconstruction surgery, neck surgery and more.  She is passionate about, and finds joy in, helping others along their road to recovery and wellness.
