Our Staff

Heather Vaillancourt, LMT

         Born and raised in the Monadnock region, Heather has been an athlete and avid outdoors person her whole life. Although she was recruited to college for softball, she decided to pursue a degree in ceramics at Maine College of Art instead. Since her college graduation in 2010, she has lived in Colorado, Australia, Maine, and the Seacoast area of New Hampshire. 

         Shortly after her return to the East Coast in 2014, she finally pursued her dream and enrolled in a Massage Therapy program. Having a pre-existing understanding of anatomy, physiology and kinesiology, massage therapy was the perfect fit for Heather. She knew from the very first day that she had made the right choice. As an inherently nurturing person, she was drawn to the physicality, creativity, and problem solving that is involved with massage therapy. Her work has now become her driving force, and she continuously aims to help her clients reach their goals.

         After having relocated from the Seacoast area, Heather opened Monadnock Therapeutic Bodyworks in 2018. She currently resides in Peterborough with her husband, Ryan Hutton, and dogs, Buddy and Red. Her time off is spent hiking, mountain biking, playing sports, swimming, running, painting, meditating, and spending time with family and friends. Heather loves the Monadnock region, and is grateful to call it home again. 


What is Heather's health and wellness philosophy?

"Receiving regular massage therapy and bodywork, eating clean foods, drinking lots of water, moving as much as possible, getting out into nature, and being positive are all integral parts of my self care regiment."
