I started seeing Heather after years of chronic respiratory issues, fatigue and overall immune issues. My health concerns were a mystery to other doctors, but Heather was able to detect signs of tick-borne infection and the presence of other viruses and bacteria that were previously undetected by other medical tests. In every session, Heather is able to identify which parts of my body really need to be supported or released for optimal function.
It is mind-blowing to witness Heather’s skill and sensitivity at tuning in to what my body needs. I can always count on her to know the answers to all my questions, whether they be general health-related questions or questions specific to my condition. Along the way I have learned so many valuable techniques to use at home for my own self-care. Heather also helps me discern which combination of nutritional supplements is best for me. She is a wealth of information (way beyond her IMT expertise), and she gives me all the support I need to really heal because she genuinely cares about every one of her clients. I have recommended Heather countless times to friends battling every type of health challenge. She is truly a rare gem!
After only 2 sessions with Heather Mulcahey, we began to notice a shift in our son’s behavior and sleeping habits. It’s almost as though his whole nervous system got rebooted, and he’s more in control of his body and emotions. We had been through more traditional occupational therapy which really didn’t help any of our issues, and in many ways made his sensory and emotional issues worse. Heather is a very patient and caring practitioner, and we’re very excited to continue treatment and see more progress.
My 3 year-old daughter was born with a heart valve deformity and had some developmental delays. After a few months of therapy, my wife and I noticed improvements in speech, vocabulary, and articulation. Her personality blossomed. She moved up to her age group in pre-school and her M.D. says her heart is doing the best he could hope for as she grows.
I went to see Heather to boost my immune function and overall health and she worked on my lymph system. It was really cool when she released my neck lymph nodes: my neck pain was immediately much better (I had this neck pain for quite some time). It made me think about how the different systems in the body affect one another. One thing I really liked was that she includes a lot of training in self-care, like mindfulness meditation, and even hands-on self-healing “homework”. I learned a lot about myself, my body and my ability to heal. I felt like she really listened to what was important to me and that my goals were her goals – I highly recommend working with Heather!!
In our few sessions together, Heather was able to bring to the surface the conditions allowing me to deal with my trauma that was 60 years buried. Her expert skill in this work allowed me to deal with this sensitive material with my current resources in the present moment.
My experiences with Heather have been truly amazing. I initially presented with Plantar Fasciitis, which made it impossible for me to walk without pain, or to walk any significant distance. During the times I’ve been in treatment, I’ve learned so much about the connections in my body, physically, emotionally, and spiritually; each session has been a gift. Best of all, I am now able to walk as much as I want to, and currently that’s daily brisk exercise walk of two to three miles, sometimes more.
I was diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome in both forearms. At times I was unable to grasp a toothbrush or hold a cup without dropping it. I tried physical therapy but it made my symptoms worse. Heather worked with me to resolve underlying problems: fascial restrictions, joint articulation, and neural tissue tension, at my neck, shoulder and wrist. My pain is gone and I have restored strength and function.
I’m an occupational therapist as well and I’m amazed by the success Heather has in treating neck pain, carpal tunnel pain, and even headaches and migraines using Integrative Manual Therapy. It’s such a gentle, light touch technique. It’s one of the few therapy approaches that acknowledges that emotions can be accessed in the body, or that there is an energy system in the body. The patients I’ve sent to her for help have been thrilled with their results.
For the past 5 years I suffered from multiple headaches every week, and migraines every month. Nothing I tried helped for more than a day or two and then the headaches were back. I stopped participating in anything that I thought might strain my neck, to the point that I wouldn’t turn my head or move normally. My mood, my enjoyment of life was so low. I started therapy with Heather Mulcahey that combined the most gentle, hands-on treatment with training in skills to help me manage my stress and pain. I learned so much from Heather and now include meditation, yoga, and breathing exercises into my everyday routine. After two months my headaches went down to once per month and I haven’t had a headache or a migraine in the last month! I cannot stress enough how different, how improved my daily life is now that I’ve gone through therapy with Heather. She is highly recommended.
As a yoga instructor, I thought I had at least a partial understanding of being grounded. I was incorrect. Under the skillful guidance of Heather, for the first time, I experienced a profound energetic grounding throughout my entire physical body, especially my legs and heels. There was a systemic shift within, a release, a peace. In our few sessions together, Heather was able to bring to the surface the conditions allowing me to deal with my trauma that was 60 years buried. Her expert skill in this work allowed me to deal with this sensitive material with my current resources in the present moment. She also gave me exercises to do at home to reinforce this work. Heather was able to go much further than previously tried therapy and other healing modalities. She is amazing!
We went to Mulcahey OT at a time we were desperate. Raising a child with Sensory Processing and Anxiety issues can be difficult. We were amazed each day we went to see Heather. Each week was a new revelation about our child. First our child was sleeping better, then eating better, and finally self-regulating her emotions. We feel like Heather gave us our family back. We are now able to go for “tune ups” when needed. Heather has an amazing approach. She is knowledgeable, professional and kind. We highly recommend her services.

Working with Heather always calls me to a greater focus of my self-respect. Her powerful insights and scientific excellence has helped me experience greater balance, not only in my physical body, but in every area of my life.
I had disabling pain in my chest, arms, neck and hips with headaches for 3 years before I started therapy treatments with Heather. Doctors could not find a diagnosis or treatment to help me. Heather had the skills to locate the problems in my body and facilitate healing. I feel better now than I have ever felt in my life, and I plan on getting better and better because of what I have learned.
My 3-year old daughter has been seeing Heather Mulcahey for about 2 months and has seen tremendous results. My daughter has suffered from constipation since infancy and also some tactile sensory integration issues which resulted in meltdowns and temper tantrums. After just a few weeks with Heather my daughter has made incredible strides such as regular bowel movements, improved water intake, significant decrease of meltdowns and temper tantrums and overall improved tolerance to sensory input. The most important improvement is my daughter’s overall happiness. She feels much better in her body allowing her to enjoy life much more. Recently, I started to bring in my 1 year old daughter who was diagnosed with eczema. Her eczema resolved in about two sessions. Heather has been great with my children. She is very patient and kind. I plan on also having my son treated along with myself because I see a long-lasting difference after treatment. Heather Mulcahey has been nothing short of amazing. Heather Mulcahey has great skill, knowledge and professionalism. She has been a true blessing to my family.
Heather has been working with my 7 year-old son for about six months now. My husband and I cannot even begin to describe the positive changes we have seen in him. Heather is amazing at what she does. She is incredibly knowledgeable and patient with me when I ask a ton of questions. She explains what she is doing in terms that make sense to me. Heather is very sweet to my son, truly cares about his well-being and has become an integral part in his progress pertaining to his focus in school, his energy level and his all-around attitude in general. I feel so very lucky to have found her and I know my son feels the same way!
Heather’s services are worth traveling to the ends of the earth for! It’s rare to find someone certified in Integrative Manual Therapy and Occupational Therapy, which has been the winning combination for our son, who struggles with sensory issues. Traditional OT wasn’t working for us, so we were surprised to see changes right away. She’s been a miracle worker for us!
I brought my son to see Heather after he suffered a concussion that was affecting him physically as well as his emotional well-being. Heather was able to not only treat his head and his entire body, but also focus on a 2-year old back injury that we were told was medically healed, but had left him with decreased mobility. I saw an improvement in his demeanor after only 1 visit. After feeling frustrated and helpless, we were very grateful to have found Heather. Highly recommend.
Heather is an innovator in the field of occupational therapy, introducing new approaches to ensure her patients have the best opportunity to achieve their goals.
I would recommend Heather as a therapist without reservation. She is a compassionate partner in her patient’s journey toward health and function. She listens to the whole story and responds with a treatment plan that starts where you are. That’s important when you have a health issue, but is even more so when a parent is looking for the right therapist for their child. Heather is that therapist.
Healing is a complex WHOLE-being process. As healing occurs inner-shifts are happening throughout your physiological, electrical & psychological systems. As the process unfolds, inner adjustments need to be made in order to integrate the changes. For this reason, healing is greatly accelerated when it is supported concurrently from the inside-out and the out-side in.
As a mental health professional I strongly recommend bodywork in conjunction with any sort of counseling, coaching or psychotherapy and I enthusiastically recommend Heather, for her deep attunement, high sensitivity, skill, intelligence and ability to work with the complexity of the human energy field.
Heather combines expertise in Integrative Manual Therapy, with functional exercise training and therapeutic yoga instruction in her occupational therapy practice. I know Heather personally and professionally. She has the personality and the skills to help adults, teenagers, and children reach their goals, improving function in life skills as well as overall quality of life. I highly recommend her body of work. Do yourself or a family member a great service, make an appointment!
