Heather S. Kuczer
Heather S. Kuczer, (LMT/Director MA#15920) opened Safety Harbor Therapeutic Massage Center in 1995. With a Bachelor’s degree in Communications from Southern New Hampshire University, she continued her education in Florida at the Suncoast School of Massage. Licensed in 1994, Heather continued to advance her education specializing in therapeutic techniques including Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT) – Trigger Point, Myofascial Release, TMJ Treatment, Muscle Energy Technique, Deep Tissue/ Sports Massage, and Prenatal Massage.
Heather decided to enter the field of Therapeutic Massage after experiencing years of back and neck pain herself. After going the standard medical route for years, with no relief, it seemed to make more sense to her to find the root cause of the problem, instead of just treating the symptoms. This is what her team of therapists do each day as they assist their clients in achieving a better quality of life and pain-free living.
After moving from Rhode Island to Florida in 1992, Heather married her husband Dave in 1996. They have been blessed with three beautiful children, Austin (23), McKenna (21), Christian (15).
“Our office works with a team approach. We work together to achieve our clients’ wellness goals. So we always recommend that clients see more than one of our therapists, as each therapist has different areas of expertise to offer. We hope every client feels our warm, welcoming atmosphere as they walk through our doors.”
