Heidi Childers JonesCoaches
Hailing from the friendly streets of Missouri City, Texas, Heidi is very likely the most curious person you’ve ever met, whether you realize it or not. Her insatiable drive to learn “all the things, all the time” led her to pursue a life in health and wellness back in 2008 in Chicago. Over the next few years, she earned an MS in exercise physiology, coached full-time, completed a clinical massage therapy program, and became an LMT. She deepened her study of Thai Massage and Bodywork in 2014 and continued to work with massage clients until returning to Austin in 2015, when she joined CFA.
Since then, she’s added a lot to her life and to her family — starting a business, marrying her husband, adopting a goofy boxer, and having her first child. Throughout her own pregnancy, she grew increasingly fascinated with the various phases of motherhood, from pre-conception through postpartum periods, and everything in between. She found herself drawn to the role of empowering women and mamas, both as a massage therapist and a coach. Her movement philosophy is focused on flexibility, balance, grace, and lifelong health.

Thai Massage is a style of bodywork that combines massage, yoga, and energy work. As a full-body treatment traditionally performed on a floor mat with clients fully clothed, it combines passive stretching and movement of joints with several touch techniques and work along energy meridians (called sen in Thai). The art of Thai bodywork achieves a deep therapeutic effect without harsh physical force through efficient use of movement, conscious touch, breathing and rhythm. Practitioners can use their whole body in leverage and interactive work as they move and rock the client into various positions, apply rhythmic touch as well as some cross-fiber stroking of muscle and tendons. The treatment can be vigorous or gentle depending on the need or preference of the client. (Adapted from thaibodywork.info)
