About Modern Healing



Modern Healing    was founded by Heather Porter, HTP-A to support those who recognize the reality of the mind-emotion-body connection and choose to tend to their health and spiritual development based on the most up-to-date knowledge in science.

The Modern Healing Promise



You are heard.

You are seen and heard in your unique individuality.  You are in complete control of your process and Modern Healing is here as a support and guide in connecting you to your inner calm, power and wisdom. 



Heartfelt honesty.

Modern Healing is here to serve, and it's rare that energy therapy cannot help someone.  However, if it's felt that a different type of therapy would suit your needs better you'll be told with heartfelt honesty and referred to a competent professional in our network.  If absolutely no benefit is experienced from your first session you'll receive a 100% refund.*


Giving Back

Each time you help yourself you'll help another.

Modern Healing is aware not everyone can afford to pay out of pocket for complementary healthcare, especially because crisis and financial strain often go hand in hand.  For every full price healing session you book a 20% value credit will go toward a free session for someone in need.  In other words, for every five sessions Modern Healing gives to you and other paying clients, one free session is donated to help someone get back on their feet.  If you know of someone who needs help have them contact us.



You belong.

A big part of healing is connection.  Modern Healing is more than a provider of energy therapy and products.  It's a community of like-minded people, a place where you belong.


You know the value of investing in your well-being in good times and bad.  And to support you in your long-term commitment to your health, Modern Healing offers discounted packages so you can save 10% on packages of three sessions or 15% on packages of six.

Meet Heather

Meet Heather Porter, HTP-A

I began serious study of energy healing and intuition in 2000 and started accepting clients in 2006.  I recently founded Modern Healing    to support those who recognize the reality of the mind-emotion-body connection and choose to tend to their health based on the most up-to-date knowledge in science.

My energy healing training is primarily based in Healing Touch but my formal studies have been complemented by various other seminars and workshops along the way.  These have included workshops on healing, intuition and manifesting with renowned intuitive Laura Day; sound healing and mantra meditation with Sri Shyamji Bhatnagar; medical intuition with neuropsychiatrist, scientist, and medical intuitive Dr. Mona Lisa Schulz, author of The New Feminine Brain; and various intuitive healing workshops with Robert Kandarjian, DC, HTP, including training in distance healing and sound healing.

Intense Healing and Spiritual Awakening


Waldorf Early Childhood Teacher


Energy Therapist 2006

My gifts as an energy healer have steadily grown through the variety of paths my heart has taken over the years.  These gifts along with the spiritual growth that have come from my most harrowing life trials are now channeled into helping others.  I have a special passion for helping women find their center and connect to their inner power and unique beauty.

I began as a classical flutist with a Masters from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music.  Ten years into my career as a musician in New York City a personal life crisis took me into uncharted depths of soul.  Many nights spent trembling in fear, convulsing in emotional pain and frozen in hopelessness led me on an intense path of healing.  I experienced the profound effects of energy therapy for the first time and my bodily perceptions and intuition grew steadily more sensitive in the process.

I was then introduced to the holistic approach in Waldorf education.  I recognized it as both a teaching and healing profession where I could be of service on a fundamental level so went on to earn my certification as a Waldorf early childhood teacher.  The first year of the teacher training was “Foundation Studies,” an intense exploration of the self and the multidimensional universal nature of all human beings.  The result was a breaking down of personal inner walls, deepened self-awareness and expanded consciousness.

During my years as a Waldorf teacher I continued my evolution of self-discovery and self-healing with energy therapy and my library steadily grew with books about holistic health and working with subtle energy through various modalities.  I felt naturally drawn to be trained in Healing Touch and opened my healing practice in 2006.
